The second sentence is correct. The first is not - Tiger's is a cumulative total, it's not an average. An average would be if you took 0.622 and divided it by 14… and said Tiger gained 0.045 strokes per tee shot or something.
And that total shows that, off the tee (on par fours and fives), Tiger is BETTER than average. Despite what you keep saying.
He's better than average.
Which makes no sense. Did you watch Koepka? Rose? Woodland? They hit some bad shots too.
You ignored my earlier comment asking you if you had seen the 2018 British Open (which he led for awhile on Sunday) or PGA Championship (in which he finished second only to Koepka).
Those are included in his approach shots, and that fifth hole is a par three: your point is that he's bad from the rough and his driver is what puts him there.
No, because by going by what your eyes tell you, you come up with garbage takes like the ones you've offered up here.
Some good stats, by the way:

So much for how Tiger is an "average" Tour player.
Like when he led the British Open last year or finished second to Koepka at the PGA last year? 😛
Very bad take.
