Golf Equipment News, Source: USGA, golf's two governing bodies are ready with their lists of conforming drivers. Says Dick Rugge, the USGA's Senior Technical Director: "To help Rules officials and golfers determine the conformance status of drivers, the USGA has published a list of non-conforming drivers on the USGA website since 1999. Since then, the USGA has received numerous requests for the publication of a companion list identifying conforming drivers. If a driver does not appear on either of these lists, it is likely that it has not yet been submitted to the USGA for evaluation."

Because the R&A currently allows some drivers that are disallowed by the USGA, the R&A lists only those driver heads that conform to the standard the R&A will adopt on Jan. 1, 2008 (bringing the two governing bodies into agreement on COR).

The USGA list can be viewed here. The R&A list is available here.
