“The World’s Largest Unbiased Head-To-Head Driver Test.”

breadth

Today, we bring you MyGolfSpy’s Most Wanted Driver for 2018.  Over a total of 245 sessions, testers of all ages, swing speeds, and handicaps tested 27 different drivers to produce the largest independent and unbiased driver test that the golfing world has ever seen.  For 2018, we increased our tester-base and refined our analytics to bring you the most comprehensive data we’ve ever produced.

Adding yet another piece to the puzzle, statistical significance – the results are more reliable than ever.

Advanced Golf Analytics

Data matters. And when it comes to finding the right equipment, it’s critical. We help solve this by applying the largest connected set of head-to-head data to tackle one of golf’s biggest challenges.

All testing was conducted inside our fully independent test facility located in Virginia.  All testers used Bridgestone Tour B-RX  golf balls for consistency and to reduce test variables. All ball and head data were collected using  Foresight Sports GCQuad Launch Monitors. This comprehensive dataset was then run through our proprietary Most Wanted Rankings methodology. What we have developed is the most comprehensive test to determine the leaders in the driver category.

  • SHOTS HIT: 10,071
  • DATA POINTS: 493,871
  • TIME: 245 hours
  • TESTERS: 35
  • HANDICAP RANGE: +2 – 17
  • AGE RANGE: 24 – 84
  • SWING SPEED RANGE: 70mph – 120mph

Our Most Wanted winner is the club that finished in the statistically significant top group (based on Strokes Gained Driving) for the highest percentage of our testers. To simplify things a bit, we call the final order TRUERank; a metric that includes the order of finish (rank), along with the percentage of golfers for whom each club was shown to be in the top group.

For complete details of the testing and ranking process, see our How We Test page.
