Introduction to Testing Taylormade & Callaway Drivers:
Out with the old and in with the new! Just recently I decided to investigate my 9-year-old driver that I am using and look for another driver. Since I am at the grand old age of 40 years old, I feel that I am getting shorter! Notably, I used Trackman to measure the differences between hitting my current Taylormade Supertri and the contender, The Callaway Epic Driver.
I warmed up by hitting 50 – 70 shots. Followed by hitting 10 golf shots with each driver from a driving range mat at John Dooley PGA.

Conclusion & results.
The main big points where, club speed and ball speed, the carry of 10.8 yards! Therefore, may I say that I am now the proud owner of a 9 degree Callaway Epic driver. I liked the weight of the club, how the club feels, the sound after striking a ball and I like the ball flight. Additionally, all of the points mentioned are key components to finding a driver that I will use. Therefore, I like my new Epic driver and its a winner! Finally, the old Supertri Taylormade driver is now fully retired from my golf bag.
