HOW WE DID IT
We asked all the major manufacturers to submit their entire 2018 ranges for testing. Only one, PXG, declined. We tested both indoors with a premium ball and outside in a range bay using range balls, as that's how many golfers will get tted. We collected a ton of data from every shot, using a Foresight Sports GC Quad launch monitor and then pored over all this info to come up with our conclusions.
We picked Foresight Sports' GC Quad, as it's the latest model on the market. Thanks to four high- resolution stereoscopic cameras (which capture 10,000 frames per second) we were able to collect thousands of pieces of data not only from the ball, but also from the clubface
We picked it for several reasons:
We were able to record where every shot impacted the clubface, making it possible to analyse where the fastest shots came from and monitor how much ball speed was lost on o -centre shots
◆ It can be used both indoors and outside. That means we were able to create a controlled environment inside at a comfortable temperature to collect data, while using a premium ball. To ensure data was relevant to you, we also tested outside using range balls
◆ By hooking the Quad up to an iPad, we saw where every shot had gone and recorded how it ew
◆ Its portability let us take it to di erent ranges if we needed to gain more data

Where We Did It
We've been testing golf gear at the National Fitting Centre at The Belfry since 2005. It's a fabulous facility in the heart of the country, with indoor tting bays for the majority of major brands, plus a team of expert club tters who will help you choose.
