Callaway Epic Flash Named Longest Driver In American Golf Battle Of The Brands

In a recent Battle of the Brands Driver test performed by 934 American Golf customers, the Callaway Epic Flash was named victorious as the longest driver on the test which saw the new model from Callaway go up against the new TaylorMade M5 and M6, Cobra King’s F9 Speedback and finally the Wilson Staff D7 driver.

Format wise each customer was asked to hit three shots with their own driver and then three more with each of the new models above. The average distance gained would then be measured. After collating all of the data it was announced the Callaway Epic Flash came out on top. All of the new drivers saw increases compared to their own drivers on test but the Epic Flash saw the biggest average increase with 8.3 yards.

In terms of the biggest increase, the TaylorMade M5/M6 had the biggest increase of 67 yards for one customer!

Conrad Edkins, Director of Marketing at American Golf was delighted with the popularity of the challenge, as he explains, “This has to be one of the largest ever sample sizes for a head to head driver test. The results were fantastic too with virtually every tester making significant distance gains with the fantastic new technology available from these four brands. This is the kind of thing that most golfers only ever read about in the golf media, so I think they had a lot of fun coming in store to test out the latest equipment for themselves.”

After the success of the driver test, American Golf are going to extend the concept to irons. Until Sunday March 3rd, any customer can test out their 7 iron against the latest iron releases from Callaway, Cobra, TaylorMade, Wilson and Ping and be entered into a prize draw to win a custom fit set of their best performing model.
