How we dit it
We asked all the major manufacturers to submit their entire 2019 ranges for testing. We tested both indoors with a premium golf ball (that's how we create our test pro's comparison data) and outside in a range bay using range balls, as that's how the majority of golfers historically get fitted. We collected a ton of data from every shot, using a Foresight Sports GC Quad launch monitor, and then pored over all this info and feedback from three testers to come up with our conclusions.
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 fitting rooms for the majority of the major brands, plus a team of expert club fitters who will help you choose.
