10-Year-Old Driver/3W vs 2019/2020 Models

Recommended Posts

I have Callaway FT-IZ driver and Tour Edge Exotics XCG 3 wood. I hit them about 235 and 205 yards total. Are 2019/2020 drivers and 3 woods much longer and more forgiving? If you have made a switch recently, did you see a major improvement?

From what I understand, your best swing coupled with the best centered strike is going to be more or less the same. There are limitations on drivers, so the absolute peak performance is only incrementally better. The big gains in technology are going to be on off-center strikes. Newer drivers are going to perform considerably better when you don't make a great swing or great contact, so your misses will be better and your standard deviations will shrink. (Granted, this video includes one driver that has been fitted and one off the shelf, but the conclusions are the same)


The same guys also do tests of all the major OEM drivers vs past models and come to basically the same conclusion. This is the Ping version, but they did it for most manufacturers if you want to see more.
