TECH: The 765’s slightly smaller head (445cc) is aimed at faster swing speeds. The smaller size is eas­ier to shape shots with while a “power wave sole” al­lows the en­tire sole to flex, en­hanc­ing spring back par­tic­u­larly when shots are hit low.

WE SAY: There weren’t many big sur­prises when it came to our Top Gear test­ing – but this was one of them. It’s an ab­so­lute beast in the right hands. Our test pro recorded one of his long­est av­er­age carry dis­tances and a huge 311yard single carry with it. The per­for­mance is ex­plained by how Chris Ryan im­pacted a lot of shots lower in the face, which the 765 is specif­i­cally op­ti­mised to re­spond to.

VER­DICT: We’d never rec­om­mend a smaller headed driver with no align­ment aid to the golf­ing masses. But if you’re a bet­ter player who tends to hit shots low in the face the 765 is well worth try­ing.
