Golf Digest's Hot List 2007

Each year, Golf's most popular magazine publishes a list of the industry's top clubs as rated by dozens of scientists and testers. Golf Digest released this year's Hot List in the February issue as several companies stole the show with hot new products.

Here is what the editors of Golf Digest honored as the best new product of its type:
Drivers: Callaway Fusion FT-5 ($430)
*How Callaway can you get with a giant head and even bigger forgiveness. Huge head, sleek design, big drives. Oh yeah, OptiFit is revolutionizing the club fitting industry.
Fairway Woods: Callaway Big Bertha ($200)
*Huge head for a fairway wood, but apparentally lets it rip of the turf. OptiFit is also available for the fairway woods.
Hybrids: Adams Idea Pro ($200)
*Newcomer to the summit of huge golf companies. Prides itself on tour proven hybrids that don't make better players feel like they're cheating on their long irons.
Game-Improvement Irons: Callaway X-20 ($700)
*Callaway GI irons are always easy to hit with a little bit of workability for the better player.
Super Game-Improvement Irons: King Cobra S9 ($800)
*Extremely light weight for easy play and long shots.
Player's Irons: Taylormade r7 TP ($800)
*Tour proven success, but looks more like a GI iron than a blade
Wedges: Titleist Vokey Spin Milled ($110)
* Can't disagree with numerous tour wins. Tiger used to put Vokey wedges in his bag too.
Mallet Putters: Odyssey White Hot XG 2-Ball SRT ($200)
*Saturn rings for stability and 2-ball design for alignment. Fear no three footer. Maybe.
Blade Putters: Ping G5i ($115)
*Nice price, nice look, what more can you ask for?
Tour-Performance Balls: Titleist Pro V1/V1x ($45)
*If you have the dough, this ball spins. If you're not an excellent player, V1's may actually hurt your game.
Value-Performance Balls: Callaway HX Hot ($25)
*A great ball in value and quality. Let this one fly longer and straighter.
