Distance

The G SF Tec is among the longest drivers tested; guys who fade get an additional boost due to the club's draw bias and good run-out; slight mis-hits travel almost as far as shots that are center-struck.

 

Playability

A naturally high flier that keeps its head in the wind; prefers straight lines or gentle draws onto the short grass; simple adjustments to the hosel improve ball flight and shape.

 

Cons

All those ridges on the crown can distract at setup; a few guys think it could pack more muscle; some don't notice enough of an improvement over the previous version to warrant an upgrade.

Bottom Line

A carryover model from 2016, the G SF Tec earns high marks again this year in every performance category. Our higher-handicappers enjoy the powerful feel, fantastic forgiveness and big distance.
