  • TWIN TEST: Cobra's F9 vs Titleist's TS drivers

    Written by Simon Daddow on Thursday, 10 January 2019

    Speed is the most heavily researched area of driver design right now. The idea is simple – by improving aerodynamics, you swing at the same speed but the clubhead travels quicker, equalling more yards. Some brands claim aerodynamics and drag reduction can improve clubhead speed by 2.5mph, whereas others say gains are closer to 1.5mph. But what you have to realise...

  • READER TEST: Snell MTB Red and Black golf balls

    Friday, 7 December 2018

    When we put the best mail order tour level balls up against the game’s top-selling ball (the Titleist Pro V1) in the summer, we had no idea how good they were going to be. Not only in terms of data, but feel, too. With the Snell MTB Black and Red models performing so well in our test – and because they’re available...

  • TWIN TEST: TaylorMade HI-TOE vs Ping Glide Forged wedges

    Written by Simon Daddow on Saturday, 1 December 2018

    TWIN TEST: TaylorMade HI-TOE vs Ping Glide Forged wedges More than ever, the one-off clubs and prototypes afforded to the world’s best players now make it onto the shelf of your local pro shop. Callaway and Phil Mickelson started the trend when they introduced the highly specialised PM Grind wedges and “Phrankenwood” (remember the fairway driver?). TaylorMade then knocked a home run...

  • The truth about strong lofted irons

    Written by Simon Daddow on Friday, 30 November 2018

    Is a 7-iron still a 7-iron when it has the loft of a 5-iron? Before launch monitors appeared on the scene, iron lofts barely got a look-in when it came to designing, making and marketing new irons. It was pretty much a given that a 7-iron was... well, just a 7-iron. But since launch monitors gave golfers and club fitters the...

  • READER TEST: Odyssey Red Ball putters

    Tuesday, 13 November 2018

    Aiming at the hole and setting up correctly ultimately leads to more holed putts. PGA Tour star Danny Lee would agree. His sponsors Odyssey say that if he holed just one more putt a week, he’d have earned an extra $500,000! To address the issue, and help you set up and align correctly more often, Odyssey designed the new Red Ball...

His first win since 2013; first win since back-fusion surgery; first win with a Bridgestone ball; and it was his first win with a TaylorMade driver. His last victory (in fact, all his wins since 2002) came with Nike...

  • TWIN TEST: Callaway Chrome Soft vs Titleist AVX golf balls

    Wednesday, 7 November 2018

    Head to head: Callaway Chrome Soft vs Titleist AVX golf balls Soft, low-compression golf balls are trending up. Fact. And since Callaway introduced the original Chrome Soft in 2014, they’ve bagged a decent-sized chunk of the premium golf ball market – and ignited a completely new sector in low-compression balls. To counter this, Titleist launched the AVX earlier this year. It’s...

  • How to choose a new hybrid

    Thursday, 25 October 2018

    Never use your 4-iron? Hybrid go as far as your 5-wood? Then read this... We've all boomed a drive down the middle on a tough par 4, only to stroll to our ball and realise there's 200 yards left to the flag. Fifteen years ago, we'd need to get out a 3 or 4 iron and pray the shots got airborne.

  • TWIN TEST: Cleveland RTX 4 v Titleist Vokey SM7 wedges

    Wednesday, 24 October 2018

    Twin Test: Cleveland RTX 4 v Titleist Vokey SM7 Ever since Titleist introduced Vokey wedges back in 1997, there's been debate among serious golfers about whether they, or Cleveland, make the best scoring clubs. Cleveland is famous for its wedges – they've been creating them for many of the world's best players since 1979 – but the all-new RTX 4 is said to...

  • Forged irons ranked by forgiveness

    Written by Simon Daddow on Monday, 15 October 2018

    Forged Irons: We've ranked every leading model and given them a forgiveness rating Forged irons used to be the domain of decent golfers. Many players, especially those who make it to single digits, see a beautiful set of forgings as the absolute pinnacle of the game. Why? Forged irons generally have smaller, more compact heads, while the way they’re stamped into shape...

  • TWIN TEST: Motocaddy M5 Connect vs Powakaddy C2i compact trollies

    Wednesday, 19 September 2018

    Size is everything when it comes to technology, and smaller is generally better. It’s so important for electric trolleys that the two market leaders, PowaKaddy and Motocaddy, are locked in a size war. Motocaddy started the “compact” trend with their M-Series a few years ago; PowaKaddy hit back last year with the Compact C2, and then C2i for 2018. But Motocaddy...

  • TESTED: Hollow body irons

    Friday, 14 September 2018

    With the exception of all the new drivers, hollow-body irons have been the hottest equipment launch of the last 12 months. They weren’t new when PXG introduced their first model in 2015; TaylorMade made some in the 1990s. But PXG’s thinking lit up a whole new product category – and now all the major brands bar Callaway and Mizuno are getting...

  • Which irons have the most wins on tour in 2018?

    Tuesday, 11 September 2018

    The 2018 season on Tour has ended, so it only seems fair to see which iron models won the most trophies and pocketed the most cash on the PGA Tour. (Click here for 2019) With both Dustin Johnson and Jason Day winning multiple times this season already, it's no surprise that TaylorMade has come out on top - with both players...

  • Which driver has the most wins on Tour in 2018?

    Tuesday, 11 September 2018

    The 2018 season on Tour has ended, so it only seems fair to see which driver model won the most trophies and pocketed the most cash on the PGA Tour. (Click here for 2019) There have been seven multiple winners on Tour in 2018, so it's no surprise that TaylorMade have come out on top given four of those players (including...
