Golf Driver Evaluation

March 2007

 

GolfTest USA provides Golf Illustrated the results of our standard golf equipment testing on an ongoing basis.

Using 10 evaluation criteria and testers with varying skill levels, based on manufacturer recommendations as to player type each club is designed for.

 

Player groups are generally defined as:

  • Low handicap golfers
  • Mid to high handicap golfers - Game improvement clubs

Clubs with an “Average” score 7.9 or better based on this scoring system are awarded the GolfTest USA “Seal of Excellence” award, indicating superior quality, value and performance.
