    Rick Shiels Taylormade driver testing

    Just seen on Twitter he's doing a comparison of the Taylormade drivers over the last 5 years.

    I'd be very surprised if the results are any different to the Callaway test.

    In that he will test 10% of them because he could not be arsed

    Agree though. Bit more forgiveness and maybe a few yards on off centre hits.

    Isn't the main difference between older drivers and more modern drivers lateral forgiveness across the face? It would be interesting to see the same test with a lesser player.
