    i use the TS3 Driver level 102 and Taylormade balls level 48

    The other player uses the R1 Driver and level 53 calloway balls and consistently out drives me.Am i being ripped off by WGT or am i missing something here.

    Well it’s only a 2 yard difference so not much in it really. And if you’re on mobile they may have a higher level “hat”..

     A friend of mine, we both use the same driver, same ball, and same level apparel, but I outdrive him by a minimum of 5-15 yards every time, and that’s no joke. He pleaded to wgt with no result, good thing he’s great at putting, thus offset the shorter drives.

    He probably has better “spin” On his drives.

    Angle to the wind, spin, trajectory, and several other factors come into drives. Unless you both hit it exactly the same (which is very unlikely), you can't really determine which club has more distance. If the other player is a friend, you might want to ask them some questions to help you learn how to hit it longer.

    You're a Tour Champion with a Driving Accuracy of 84.60%.  It appears that what you're missing is the fairway.

    The  original R-1 driver is one heck of a driver.Note that it is an 8 degree med/high driver. your driver is either a 9 or 10 degree high trajectory club. The R-1 sacrifices some loft for distance.
