Absence of weight is the next big trend in drivers. Is it right for you?
If you think about it, we’ve seen some extraordinary advances in driver technology in the last few years. And no, we aren’t talking the transitions we’ve made from wood to metal, or even metal to carbon.
This year's drivers are like the classics, but with modern engines
2010 is a great year to buy a new driver. Manufacturers have (with a few exceptions) returned to more traditionally shaped clubs, stock driver shafts are better than ever (though certainly not as high performing as a premium fitted one), and prices haven’t budged.
Today’s drivers are so fine-tuned and well-made that it’s a cinch to find the right model for your game. If your old model doesn’t have you hitting it long and straight, one of this year’s new drivers definitely will. Remember when hitting 300-yard drives was something you only dreamed about? Well those days are over now that drivers are more powerful, more forgiving and more fun to hit than ever before.
As 2009 has already arrived, it’s time to think about adding some new artillery to your golf bag. If you’re like most players, the driver is the one club you really get excited about, and fortunately, there are a number of innovative and exciting designs available in the new year. If you’re a fan of unique geometric shapes, you’ll want to check out Callaway’s new FTiQ driver, as well as Cleveland’s latest rendition of the HiBORE, the Monster XLS.
The company that’s credited by many as a pioneer of the hybrid revolution with the introduction of the original Rescue model is back at it again, this time with new hybrids and fairway woods. Both new series of clubs are part of the company’s Burner family, led by the highly successful Tour Burner driver.
The driver is unquestionably the most popular club in the bag.
Sometimes nothing beats hitting a drive on the screws, right down the middle. For you youngsters, “hitting it on the screws” is an old, but literal saying that harkens back a whopping 20 years to when golfers used persimmon heads with screws that held the clubface together. These days, things sure have changed. Drivers don’t have screws in the front, instead you’ll sometimes find them in the back and to the sides. In other models, you’ll find carbon, titanium, tungsten and steel, all designed to serve a particular purpose, which is to help you hit the ball farther and straighter than ever.
Check out the new TaylorMade CGB MAX driver and iron, both of which are designed to make the game easy for everyone.
If you’re sniffing around for a new driver this season, first ask yourself what kind of driver you need: Do you want more distance? Do you want to counteract your slice? How about a driver that features moveable weights? If your answer is “all of the above,” then you’re in luck.
