Every great round of golf starts with a solid shot off the tee. To make sure you are starting off on the right foot when you’re on the course, you will want to have the right driver.
A driver is usually used on holes that are par 4 or par 5 and are created to give you the most distance of any of the clubs in your bag. They also tend to have the lowest loft of any club in your bag as well as being the longest club.
When looking for your next driver, you have to consider the material that was used to make it as well as the size of the club. Modern drivers are generally made with a titanium head and a graphite shaft. However, there are other things to consider when you are buying your driver including the length, weight, loft and if it is adjustable. You can even get these clubs fitted to your body for optimal accuracy and consistency. The key is to the right driver first.
In times like these, there are so many drivers available for purchase that your head might spin. This is why we’ve created this list of some of the best drivers going into the season. With a description of the product and a list of the great features that are attributed to these clubs, we hope the search for your next one will be a little bit easier. Enjoy!
