Been reading all the manufacturer claims of distance achievable with golf balls and golf drivers. Remarkable - its a wonder we aren't all scratch players !!

 

Just wondering - is there an official body that robot tests drivers to prove which hits longer. Same with balls ?

This is the long and short of it, make your new club longer in length and less loft same number on the bottom and bam! your 6 iron goes 10 yards further.

 

Another example could be to select someone using a badly fit 10 year old driver at a demo day, custom fit them to the hilt with head, shaft, grip and a bit of coaching and now they are hitting 20 yards further.

 

Now you can use this in ad campaigns and not be lying in the slightest.

No.

 

USGA tests whether clubs conform but not whether they perform.

 

Some golf magazines sometimes do a comparison test of some clubs, but that's hardly comprehensive.

 

The real question is whether a particular club with appropriate weight adjustments, shaft type, etc. will perform better for you than another club.  For that you'll need an experienced club fitter, not a shop salesman.

Get onto any golf forum, most drivers go 300m and 7 irons 180m :)
