There are issues with the info on spin. For one, a ball that has top spin is not in the air for very long. You'd have to literally hit it with the bottom of the club head.
We should have some sort of video competition (would require entrants to have super high fps cameras for verification) of people trying to actually hit a driver on the face with top spin but the ball trajectory starting up away from the ground (so you can't just put the club head way back with the club face pointing way into the ground and then sweep the club head along the ground and pound it into the ground where it would have top spin for an inch before hitting the ground).
Say you have a 10˚ driver. It's physically possible. I imagine you'd need a super long tee to tee the ball up super high. Then try to hit the ball with a positive angle of attack, say +5˚, while at the same time having your hands forward enough that you can create dynamic loft of, say, 3˚. Voila! Top spin! I want to see a true top to bottom curveball (say Tom Gordon style) with a driver!
