What we say...
The Bobby Jones Workshop Edition drivers hefty price tag is in part due to a rare Russian BT-23 titanium though we’re unsure what performance benefi ts this offers. The head is just 440cc but feels much bigger at address and almost impossible to miss. Despite reasonable performance the looks were an acquired taste and this was reflected in our tester’s ratings.
Pro Verdict: A deep face made it very different to the rest. This club has a soft feel; though I didn’t feel comfortable with it, it was deceptively long.
Tester Comments: “Very easy to hit but not a huge fan of the way it looks”... “Unusual shape, feels light and ball fl ight is much lower for me”... “A solid big hitter”.
TG test watchers might think we don’t necessarily rate Bobby Jones gear. Well, the Bobby Jones Workshop Edition driver went down a storm. It’s a very curvy driver, but if you can get past the rounded look, you’re on to a winner. Jon felt the curves actually aided confidence at address, while George felt the club was powerful and solid. The only gripe? £299 for a driver that remains a smaller brand.

Bobby Jones Drivers User Reviews
I was the luck winner of the Bobby Jones Driver competition recently. When it arrived i thought it was a little ugly, but gave it a go and was pleasently suprised. You soon get used to the look and it sits nicely behind the ball. It feels very solid and has a great sound. A good shaft will always help, and this has one, an Aldila NVS R65. I was so pleased with distance and accuracy that i've taken my G5 out of the bag and put Bobby Jones in!
