Golf Drivers FAQ’s

What is the best driver for beginners?

From Game Improvement technology drivers to custom fit.

For beginners golfers hitting the driver can often be difficult therefore you want something as forgiving and easy to hit as possible! Drivers with a larger club face and higher lofts will help you with off centred hits and launching the ball into the air. Some drivers will have adjustable weights and loft settings which can help you hit the ball straighter without having to change your swing. For example moving the weight towards the heel of the club will help promote a draw ball flight and fix a slice.

Some popular driver models for beginners include the Taylormade Stealth 2 HD or Callaway Paradym X. These drivers are all designed to be forgiving and easy to hit, with high MOI (moment of inertia) and low CG (center of gravity) for optimal launch and distance.

What is the difference between a driver with a low center of gravity and a high center of gravity?

Driver Head CG

The center of gravity (CG) of a driver refers to the point on the clubhead where the mass is concentrated. A driver with a low CG will have more weight positioned toward the bottom of the clubhead, which can help golfers launch the ball higher and with less spin. Conversely, a driver with a high CG will have more weight positioned toward the top of the clubhead, which can result in a lower ball flight and more spin.

Generally speaking, drivers with a low CG are better for golfers who need help getting the ball into the air, while drivers with a high CG are better for golfers who have a higher swing speed and can generate plenty of spin on their own.

What is the most forgiving driver on the market?

Improve your driving

The most forgiving driver for one golfer may not be the same for another, as different golfers will have different needs and preferences. However, some drivers are known for their forgiving qualities and are popular choices among golfers of all skill levels.

The TaylorMade Stealth 2 HD, Callaway Paradym X and Mizuno ST-Z 230 driver are all popular choices for golfers looking for a forgiving driver. These drivers feature high MOI and low CG, which can help minimise the effects of mishits and maximise distance on off-centre hits.

What is the best driver for distance?

A wide range of drivers from the biggest golf brands

When it comes to maximising distance off the tee, it’s important to find a driver that is optimised for your swing. Look for drivers with a low CG and high MOI, as these will help you launch the ball with more speed and less spin. Some popular drivers for distance include the Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond and TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus. These drivers all feature advanced technology and materials designed to maximise ball speed and distance.

What is the best driver for accuracy?

Driving more fairways

Accuracy is a crucial factor for many golfers, especially those who struggle with a slice or hook. To improve accuracy, look for drivers with a straighter ball flight and more forgiving qualities. The Taylormade Stealth 2 HD Driver is a more draw bias driver and the most forgiving Stealth 2 Driver in the range.

What is the difference between a regular and stiff shaft?

Choosing your shaft type on your driver

When it comes to golf club shafts, one of the most important factors to consider is the shaft’s flex. The two most common flex options for golf shafts are regular and stiff. A golf club’s shaft flex refers to how much the shaft will bend during the swing. A more flexible shaft will bend more, while a stiffer shaft will bend less. The amount of bend in the shaft can have a significant impact on the golfer’s ball flight and shot accuracy.

A regular flex shaft is designed to bend more during the swing, which can help golfers generate more clubhead speed and distance. Regular flex shafts are typically recommended for golfers with slower swing speeds, as the added flex can help them achieve more optimal ball flight and distance.

On the other hand, a stiff flex shaft is designed to bend less during the swing, which can help golfers achieve more control and accuracy. Stiff flex shafts are typically recommended for golfers with faster swing speeds, as the added stiffness can help them maintain control of the clubhead through impact and prevent the clubface from turning over too much.

It’s important to note that there are other factors that can impact shaft selection, such as the golfer’s swing tempo and release point. A golfer with a smooth, consistent swing tempo may benefit from a regular flex shaft, even if they have a relatively fast swing speed. Similarly, a golfer who releases the clubhead late in the swing may benefit from a stiffer flex shaft, even if they have a slower swing speed.

In addition to regular and stiff flex options, there are also other flex options available, such as senior or extra stiff, that cater to different swing characteristics and speeds.

Ultimately, the best way to determine which shaft flex is right for you is to contact one of our specialists. We can help assess your swing characteristics and recommend a shaft flex that matches your needs and preferences, helping you achieve optimal performance on the course.

What is the optimal loft for a driver?

Driving loft choice

The optimal loft for a driver will depend on your swing speed and angle of attack. As a general rule, golfers with slower swing speeds (less than 90 mph) may benefit from a higher lofted driver, while golfers with faster swing speeds (over 100 mph) may benefit from a lower lofted driver.

For example, a golfer with a slower swing speed may benefit from a driver with a loft of 12-14 degrees, while a golfer with a faster swing speed may prefer a driver with a loft of 8-10 degrees. However, keep in mind that loft is just one factor in driver performance, and the overall design and technology of the club head will also play a significant role in launch and distance.

What is the best driver brand on the market?

So many drivers, so many choices!

There is no one “best” driver brand on the market, as different brands will have different strengths and weaknesses. Some of the most popular driver brands include Callaway, TaylorMade, Mizuno, Titleist, and Cobra. Each of these brands offers a range of driver models to suit different needs and preferences.

When choosing a driver brand, it’s important to consider factors such as design, technology, and pricing. Some brands may offer more advanced technology or innovative designs, while others may be more budget-friendly.

What is the best driver for seniors?

More forgiveness, less weight, perfect drivers for senior players.

For seniors, it’s important to look for a driver that is lightweight, forgiving, and easy to hit. Drivers with larger club-heads, higher lofts, and adjustable weights can all be helpful in maximising distance and accuracy. Some popular driver models for seniors include the Taylormade Stealth 2, Callaway Paradym and Mizuno ST-Z 230. These drivers are all designed to be forgiving and easy to hit, with advanced technology and materials to maximise distance and accuracy.

How do I choose the right driver for my swing speed and style?

Golf drivers to suit your game.

Choosing the right driver for your swing speed and style requires a bit of trial and error. The first step is to determine your swing speed, as this will help guide your choice of loft and shaft flex.

From there, it’s important to consider your swing style and preferences. Do you tend to hit the ball with a lot of spin or with a lot of side spin? Do you need help getting the ball in the air or do you tend to hit high shots naturally?

Once you have a good sense of your swing speed and style, it’s a good idea to test out several different driver models to see which ones feel the best and produce the best results. Many golf retailers and pro shops offer fitting sessions, which can be helpful in finding the right driver for your game.

What is the meaning of MOI?

The true meaning of ‘moment of inertia’ within Golf.

MOI also known as Moment of Inertia is how much resistance a clubbed has to twisting. For example if you were to hit a shot out of the toe your club face would twist open. This can lead to a loss of distance and a wider pattern of dispersion. Drivers with higher MIO deliver a larger sweet spot and more forgiveness leading to hitting the fairways more often!
