Mizuno MX-500 Is the Clear "Overall" Winner in Golf Illustrated's "460cc Driver Test"
The March/April Issue of Golf Illustrated's "460cc Driver Test" has just been released and the MX-500 is the clear-cut, "Overall" winner!
Sixty golfers from 0 to 25 in handicap participated in the testing and evaluation of each driver. Afterwards, the 50 tests with the fairest and most consistent evaluations were selected. Those tests created the compilation of the final results. The results were based on 10 categories, each of which was scored on a one to 10 system, with 10 being the best possible score.
The 10 categories were: Distance, Control, Accuracy, Forgiveness, Sound, Appearance, Feel, Ball Flight (Trajectory), Recommendation to Others, and Overall.
The Mizuno MX-500 was ranked #1 in 7 out of the 10 categories, including Overall! And in the other three categories, the MX-500 finished a close second.
Here is a breakdown of how the MX-500 scored by category:
Distance: 8.08 (1st Place)
Control: 7.82 (1st Place)
Accuracy: 7.78 (1st Place)
Forgiveness: 7.56 (1st Place)
