    I don't get why you don't have a job in baseball with all your knowledge.

    It'd be so great to harness all your baseball knowledge though. Consider a career change.

    all else being equal the more height the more power
    Golfers with longer arms have slower swing speeds as do ball players relative to shorter players generally. The taller players generally have more mass and thus increase torque at their joints. The fangraphs article referred by TheHurl would serve you well.

    Why Do Tall Golfers Hit It Further
    The reason taller golfers hit it farther is mostly because their size provides a frame for more muscle and larger lever arms at the joints. The rest of it -- larger arc, more massive body -- reduces clubhead speed,

    definitely easier to be good at hitting a golf ball if you are short, but taller players once they learn to control their swing generally have a significant advantage in length from longer radii and longer swing path to generate velocity

    shorter players like sergio and rickie fowler get their length from insane clubhead lag
