MyGolfSpy’s much anticipated 2018 Ultimate Driver Test has been unveiled – with Mizuno’s ST180 driver living upto it’s ‘surprise package’ reputation, ranking #1st for carry distance.
The test demonstrated how closely many of the leading drivers performed – with less than 3 yards of carry between the top 10 drivers. It also backed the ST180’s claim to have a very efficient ball flight – generating it’s yards without having the very highest ball speed on test. The GT180 driver also ranked in the top 10 for carry distance – just over 1 yard behind the ST180 and a slightly higher ball speed (4th fastest on test).
Tour Operations Manager, Alex Thorne commented, “This result breaks any preconception that certain heavily marketed drivers are flying 20 yards further. The leading brands are now much closer than most golfers realise. We’re very happy that the ST180 ranked #1 for carry distance, but ultimately these results release the golfer to be correctly fitted for the driver they like best. We’re not saying everyone should play a Mizuno driver now – but the ST180 should definitely be on your shortlist.”
The ST180 and GT180 drivers are available for testing at Mizuno’s Fitting Centre network – with 16 authentic shaft options available without additional charge.
The MyGolfSpy test is recognised as the most statistically robust in the industry – with over 10,071 shots hit, 35 human testers (from +2-17 hcp) and swings from 70-120mph.
