TECH: The FG Tour’s been de­signed and ex­ten­sively play tested by Wil­son Staff PGA Tour player Kevin Streel­man. It has a re­fined 460cc head shape, with ad­justable low and for­ward weight­ing to lower spin, along with a re­ac­tive face.

WE SAY: An­other driver that spilt our testers, which shows how much per­sonal opin­ion comes into our buy­ing de­ci­sions. The FG Tour’s got a deep face and the sound is very muted and solid (prob­a­bly be­cause it’s been de­signed for pros) which pro­voked dis­cus­sion, as so many golfers equate high­pitched im­pact sounds with power. Our test pro re­ally warmed to it, com­fort­ably dis­patch­ing shots 12 yards fur­ther than his test av­er­age and with a 3mph quicker ball speed. With our two am­a­teur testers not quite see­ing such im­pres­sive re­sults, we reckon the Tour, with its for­ward weight­ing, is more suited to high-spin players.

VER­DICT: The Tour’s good per­for­mance and ex­cel­lent com­po­nents, par­tic­u­larly for high-spin players, make it a re­ally solid propo­si­tion.
