DISTANCE DIFFERENCE Hickory versus modern golf clubs

South African Brandon Stone took part in a little hickory versus modern golf clubs challenge, and the results are perhaps, unsurprising.

Like Lucas Herbert’s test with the hickories, Stone’s numbers are much lower with the old golf clubs than with the new ones.

It’d be nice to see the numbers with modern golf balls, but the role of technology on how far the golf ball is going is clear. No matter how athletic the modern professional golfer has become.
