MGS, the driver test was fantastic but, I think there are one or two OEMs that still aren't sufficiently enraged by your unbiased data. So, when do we get to see a, "Most Wanted Golf Ball" study?
I saw that back in December the subject was unofficially broached. Is this in the works?
I would love to see this in a similar format as you do for drivers. Get a bunch of testers, have them use their own clubs and a control set of clubs. Data collected using the testers' own clubs could be compared ball to ball relative each tester's average performance, with control clubs you could just put the raw data out there. Perhaps use a driver and a 7i.
For short game, you could use a combination of launch monitor data and player questionnaires.
For putts, you could use a similar format as was used in the "Most Wanted Putter" test, looking at strokes gained per round.
I realize, a proper ball test is a huge endeavor but I think it's what MGS was made for!
