GolfBallTest.org Releases The Real List: Golf Ball Performance Rankings
PR Log - Nov 17, 2012 - Rigorous and independent testing yields performance rankings of leading golf balls powered by GolfBallSelector.com patented technology to help golfers choose the right ball without marketing hype.
NEW YORK, NY November 17, 2012. GolfBallTest.org announced today the launch of its new Real List TM golf ball performance ranking system powered by GolfBallSelector.com Patented Technology. The Real List TM provide golfers with rigorous and independent testing of the major golf balls in the market, including those of Titleist, Bridgestone, TaylorMade, Callaway, Nike, Wilson and Innovex – and include Driver Distance rankings for High Speed, Medium Speed and Low Speed golfer swing profiles, as well as Wedge Spin rankings and construction rankings for Compression and Cover Hardness.
“The Real List TM is the independent authoritative source of golf ball performance”, says Gary Esayian of GBT Technologies, LLC, developer of GolfBallTest.org and GolfBallSelector.com. “The Real List TM cuts through all the marketing claims to get to the real performance differences in these balls, helping golfers make better choices to improve their game and also save some money”
The basis for the Real List TM is U.S Patent 7,918,751, Method of Rating Golf Balls. The patent identifies a method to obtain performance data on golf balls in a manner that will assist golfers in selecting a golf ball that meets their specific swing profile, equipment, feel and price criteria. Forty (40) golf balls were subjected to this patented test and rating method including player and robot testing over multiple ball speeds and launch conditions. The GolfBallSelector.com fitting application was utilized to create player profiles and produce rankings for driver distance and wedge spin.
Other approaches to rating balls do not adequately consider how player preferences can affect golf ball selection and performance. Says Gary Mayes, Managing Partner and Chief Technologist at GolfBallTest.org “We have tested every major golf ball in the market since 2007 and the Real List TM is derived from our data-driven approach utilizing the proprietary performance rating and selection models ofGolfBallSelector.com (http://www.golfballselector.com/). This technology allows us to simultaneously evaluate each ball across multiple dimensions of performance, considering the large differences in golf swing speeds, launch conditions and player bias for distance, control and feel. There are many imitators out there, but nothing comes close to the rigor and independent testing we perform in our evaluations.”
GolfBallTest.org (GBT) is owned and operated by GBT Technologies LLC. GBT conducts continuous testing of leading golf balls sold primarily in the United States, utilizing swing robots and real golfers, and publishes its scientific findings at GolfBallTest.org.
