 Tour-W, £90

Key technology: A tungsten weight in the toe of the club, small cavity and tuning port are all combined to give added stability on any length of shot. A compact teardrop head helps give added control on delicate chip shots.

While the technology gives plenty of confidence-inspiring forgiveness on full shots, it is around the greens that this really impresses. Traditionalists may prefer a thinner topline than is on offer here.
