American Golf to Host ‘Battle of the Brands’ driver test

8.15am 21st January 2020 - New Products

Golf retailer American Golf is inviting golfers to test out seven of the biggest brands’ new drivers in its 2020 ‘Battle of the Brands’ long drive competition, with four £500 American Golf vouchers up for grabs for the longest drive in four categories.

Between January 21 and February 17, golfers can visit any American Golf store to hit three shots with each of the Benross Delta, Callaway Mavrik, Cobra SpeedZone, Ping G410, TaylorMade Sim, Titleist TS2 and Wilson Launch Pad drivers. The longest drive using any driver will win one of four £500 American Golf vouchers in men’s and ladies’ over 45 and under 45 categories.

Will Sturgess, brand manager at American Golf, said: “This is set to be the biggest head to head driver test that the U. has ever seen and will provide us with the definitive answer to what is the longest driver on the market. With a potential sample size of thousands, not only will we see the limits of each brand when the UK’s biggest hitting club golfers step up to the tee, but the average distances from golfers who just want to come and try the clubs side by side will give a unique insight into which club gives the ‘average golfer’ the biggest distance advantage.”
