I dare say if they had the comparable questions about the PGA Tour, your average golfer might not do very well either.  

Overall, it's a shame that the LPGA doesn't' get the level of exposure that they deserve.  I was a member of Locust Hill Country Club that hosted the LPGA for over 30 years.  We opened up our house for touring professionals to stay while playing.  Across the board, every pro we met was gracious, appreciative and generally a lot of fun.  I'd follow groups every year and though they moved several tee boxes up on several holes, I found I could relate much better to their game than the average PGA player.  In 2000, the average PGA Tour driving distance was 273 yards (leader John Daly averaged 301).  During that same period the LPGA average was about 230 years (with leader Caroline Blaylock at 270 yards).    The LPGA hit distances more in line with really good men players I knew and their overall approach to the game seemed similar to mine (where I typically hit from, chipping, putting, etc.). 

As such, I became a fan of the LPGA.  I think if more people were exposed to the players and their game, they would be fans too!
