Add one more to the growing list of 2019 drivers. The 2019 Tommy Armour Atomic has been added to the USGA’s conforming clubs list.
It’s reasonable to assume that the Dick’s house brand won’t get the kind of attention in the driver space that Callaway and TaylorMade will over the coming months, but we were pleasantly and repeatedly surprised by the performance of the Tommy Armour brand throughout this year’s Most Wanted testing.
Here’s the quick rundown.
- The TA Impact Series #3 Alignment tied 1st in our Mallet Test
- The TA1 Driver had a surprisingly strong showing in our Driver Test
- The Tommy Armour Over N’ Out Wedge was our Best Value in the 2018 Most Wanted Wedge Test
That’s not a bad showing for a brand whose products typically retail for significantly less than mainstream offerings. For golfers seeking performance on a budget, across the board, Tommy Armour is tough to beat.
The USGA photos suggest the Atomic will be hosel adjustable, and will again feature multi-material construction (e.g., carbon fiber crown).
More details to come, but we certainly expect Tommy Armour will be fully represented in 2019 Most Wanted.
