Review from the magazine
As a brand MacGregor are definitely better known for their irons and to find a decent driver from the company you have to go back to the Persimmon days. But the M59 impressed and our guys were surprised when we revealed the price to them after the test.
Performance stats suggested this was a premium offering because it was consistently high in both distance and dispersion. The crown is more of a pearl colour which some of our team liked and others thought it cheapened the look. The head shape won more admirers than it turned off.
Pro James said it sat too closed for his liking and that had an adverse effect on his performance. Dave B and Dave R insisted there were more forgiving drivers on test and Scott felt it lacked any real power – although stats put it in his top five for distance.
James V and Dave C were quite surprised by not only performance but also feel although Dave said he was a little disappointed it wasn’t offered in a lower loft.
Looks: 3.4 Feel: 3.6 Forgiveness: 3.4 Distance: 4.5 Dispersion: 4.5
