VER­DICT Some­times you can make the face more flexible by look­ing be­yond the part of the club that ac­tu­ally hits the ball. That’s why the full-size, higher-launch­ing, slightly draw-bias 565 and the com­pact, mid-launch­ing 765 use a face de­sign that wraps deeper around the crown and sole for bet­ter off-cen­tre-hit per­for­mance. Both help even worse hits through a stepped sole de­sign. This struc­ture de­forms at im­pact and springs for­ward to con­trib­ute to the flex­ing of the face. It also stores weight low and deep for bet­ter sta­bil­ity. The re­sult is two driv­ers that play more for­giv­ing than they look. COM­MENTS (L) There’s noth­ing wrong with its ba­sic looks, es­pe­cially when you’re split­ting the fair­way all day long. Ev­ery hit felt and sounded like I flushed it. (M) Sim­ple ad­justa­bil­ity in a clean, tight look. I was sur­prised by the pop it de­liv­ers. (H) Here’s a less-is-more ap­proach. I always felt like I was in con­trol. It’s a com­fort­able driver to swing.
