NEW: GOLF DRIVERS TEST 2015

FEATURE: GOLF DRIVERS TEST 2014

In the second of a new monthly Club Test series, we review ten top-end golf drivers launched in 2013.

To keep the test fair, Andy and Alex - off 7 and 14 respectively - trialled ten different branded game improvement drivers at 10.5-degree, neutral face setting and stiff shaft and then marked each out of ten for appearance, feel and performance with additional results provided from the revolutionary ball tracking system 3Trak.

The test, carried out on the state-of-the-art technology at Urban Golf in Kensington, saw Andy and Alex score separately without consultation and the score presented for each driver is an average of two. This generated an overall score out of 30, with an overall table and conclusion on the final page of the feature.

With each driver, we have also provided details of price, lie angle (angle between centre line of hosel and ground line when the ground line is in contact with the centre of the sole from heel to toe), length, swing weight (measure of how the weight of the club feels when you swing it), shaft and grip.

The test is listed in alphabetical order.
