Sonartec is a brand that flew under the radar until Todd Hamilton used one from every conceivable lie and distance to win the British Open. Then, one of the best kept secrets in golf was out. Luke Donald had one in his bag when he won the recent Honda Classic.
The Sonartec SS-2.5 is the company’s latest fairway wood offering, and it made the 2006 Golf Digest Hot List.
This model actually goes in the opposite direction of most manufacturers by raising the center of gravity so that it is in line with the impact point on the ball. This, Sonartec says, will produce a more penetrating ball flight.
On the down site, Golf Digest notes that it also makes the club a little less forgiving than others.
