SPEED THRILLS

You could ben­e­fit from a brand’s more for­giv­ing head than its hero driver.

Golf World (UK) - - FRONT PAGE -

Test­ing the met­tle of three fast and for­giv­ing driv­ers.

Just be­cause the Callaway Rogue, Ping G400 and Tay­lorMade M3 are stacked with all the lat­est tech­nolo­gies and used by many of the world’s top play­ers, that doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily mean they’re the best op­tions for you. Each man­u­fac­turer also of­fers a more for­giv­ing driver at a cheaper price point. You will have to sac­ri­fice some bells and whis­tles (of­ten the ul­tra-ad­justa­bil­ity), but many am­a­teurs would ben­e­fit far more from hav­ing a sim­pler club en­gi­neered to pro­tect ball speeds and di­rec­tion on off-cen­tre hits rather than ab­so­lutely max­imise per­for­mance out the sweet spot. Equip­ment ed­i­tor Kit Alexan­der and Elite Pro Golf’s Sam Sharpe tested the Ping G400 Max, Callaway XR Speed and Tay­lorMade M4 driv­ers to dis­cover just how for­giv­ing these clubs are and iden­tify the type of golfers they would suit.
