Coming Soon (enough) - 2014 Golf's Most Wanted Driver Test


Recommended Posts

Here we go boys...a Saturday edition to help keep the momentum rolling.

 

If you asked me, I'd tell you that I fully expect one of the big boys to finish on top of our 2014 Most Wanted. They outspend the little guys (both on marketing and R&D), and whether everyone wants to hear it or believe it, the reality is those guys make a top-tier product.

 

With that said, if you're looking to put some money down on a long shot (it's a shame Vegas doesn't have a book for this), this should be one of your pics. This will be the 3rd iteration of their driver we tested. The last two were arguably the best drivers that nobody talked about.

The rest of the pictures up on the website in 10.

Happy Monday everyone. At least one announcement will be made today (like right now), but assuming my day stays on-track, there will be at least one other later in the day. So as always, you guys get it first.

 

THIS is the one I was talking about last week when I said something like we have a surprise entry with a good story...anyway, this is it, and I'll share a bit of that story when I post the info on the website in the next 15 minutes or so. Here's the link to that post.

Also...In case you missed it, later in the day last Friday I wrote an article about TaylorMade's Weird Week in the Wake of Big Bertha. I think it's worth a read, but then again, I'm the guy who wrote it, so there's probably some bias there. Please check that out as well.

Let's announce another one. Ok...sounds like a good idea to me.

 

Sorry...all this cough syrup I've been downing lately has me a little loopy. I may be talking to myself, I may be less sure of what day it, I might even be positive that my daughter's Mickey Mouse doll is talking to me, but none of that should stop us from announcing the next entry in our 2014 Most Wanted Driver Test...and so here it is.

10 minutes or so and more photos are up on the blog. There's a high probability we're going to be announcing another entry today.

Here we go. Time for another announcement.

 

Back for Year 2.0 of Golf's Most Wanted is Nike's Covert 2.0. See what I did there? 2.0...2.0. Clever, right?

 

More pics on the website shortly.

So here's the latest update I have for you.I'm 99% confident that we'll have 16 different manufacturers in our test. The total number of models tested (not counting Pro/Tour heads that we treat as fitting options) will either be 22 or 23 + our reference club (big news buried in this simple little paragraph). Once we track down the shipment that UPS lost we can firm that number up.

 

That which was PENDING is now IN, and now that we're past deadline, you can go ahead and ad KickX to the out list as multiple emails were not returned.

 

Actual testing should start very soon.

Reference club is not the winner. It was, however, a relatively high finisher. The 913 won for accuracy, but was not the overall winner.
