WHAT WAS TESTED?
The VGG driver was tested against the most current club offering from four leading manufacturers. In one batch of tests they compared every club as it comes off the shelf from the manufacturer. They also placed their upgraded shaft on each club for another batch of head-to-head tests.
HOW WAS IT TESTED?
Clubs were tested in 64 degree conditions with light winds and 76-82% humidity. Robot parameters were 27 amps, initial percent 60, release point 160 and lie angle 54. For each shot VGG looked at the carry distance, the carry dispersion and the distance from center.
WHAT DID THEY LEARN?
With and without their stock shaft, the Vertical Groove Driver carried further than all of the clubs tested by as much as 8.4 yards. Golf Robot testing is important, but few of us have that perfect swing. They are currently collecting live data from amateur golfers which is showing improvements over 20 yards! They will post that data on their website as it becomes available - or watch for the testimonials on the VGG YouTube page.
Dispersion and distance-from-center tests were even more impressive. In head-to-head testing with the same upgraded shaft in every club, Vertical Groove drives were 43% closer to the center-line and had much less dispersion. Dispersion on the VGG club was 1.6 yards vs. an average of 13.5 for the competiton. Some of the competitors had as much as 22.7 yards of dispersion.
