Test results: How they rated
Testers voted on their faves using a 100-point scale. Our star system rewards the top picks. Overall performance grade is determined by weighting equally the five categories.

There's no question that all three are excellent clubs, and both the Callaway and Nike square-headed drivers prove to be more forgiving than the TaylorMade. But r7 SuperQuad ran the table in terms of look, feel, playability and distance.
