What we say...
The FG Tour’s been designed and extensively play tested by Wilson Staff player Kevin Streelman during its development. They reckon its got a refined 460cc head shape, with adjustable low and forward weighting to lower spin, along with a reactive face to maximise ball speeds across the face.
Another driver that seriously spilt our testers, which just goes to show how much personal opinion comes into our buying decisions. The FG Tour’s got a seriously deep face but because it looks pretty lofted we felt it could inspire confidence for some golfers. The sound of the FG Tour is very muted which was a point of discussion between our testers. Looking at the data for hard facts the Tour put in a shift. It carried just further than the average of all drivers on test, but it also launched and flighted shots amongst the highest which was unexpected because of the low forward weighting.
Wilson probably aren’t the first choice driver for many golfers, and the Tour isn’t going to change this. Put aside the preconceptions of which brand makes the best driver and the Tour is a really solid proposition.
