Different Types Of Drivers Golf The Best Golf Driver You Can Buy Business Insider
Introduction There is an overabundance of golf driver reviews on the internet. Many people are not familiar with the technological advancements of modern-day drivers. In addition to that many of the online reviews can be misleading or misinformed. By educating yourself you will know what kind of driver will suit you. The first thing to consider is the clubhead size. Most manufacturers offer clubheads today at the USGA limit of 460cc volume. This volume became common with the introduction of titanium clubheads. Titanium is much lighter than steel and therefore can have a larger size while maintaining traditional weight. This volume is preferred by the majority of golfers simply due to the fact that a larger head size corresponds to a larger "sweet spot". This is very important to average golfers because it is easier for them to make good contact with the ball.
Therefore beginner golfers should look for drivers with a very high MOI (5800-5900). Another common term seen when reading golf driver reviews is Center of Gravity (CG). Basically beginners should focus on drivers that have a low CG. This allows balls to have a higher flight path when compared to drivers with a higher CG. One more term used in some golf driver reviews is what is known as Coefficient of Restitution (COR). This refers to a spring-like attribute that a ball has at impact. At a higher COR the golf ball will be leaving the clubhead faster (i.e. higher momentum) for a fixed impact speed. The USGA legal limit for COR is 0.830 presently.
The tradeoff may be the unusual shape yet other styles launched in the market like the X460 offer avid golfers a uniquely balanced all-titanium option that not only delivers great ball speed deep drive and stability but isnt embarrassing to have in the golf bag. Speaking of looks a golf driver that seems to have it all from sleek looks to near-perfect accuracy to build quality and overall value for money is the TaylorMade R9. As record-setting American pro golfer Jack Nicklaus once said golf is a game of power. Well the TaylorMade R9 is one of the drivers that offer power. Some golfers have a love affair with specific brands and the TaylorMade Tour Burner has figured highly in many players lives. Another favored option from Callaway the Big Bertha Driver is noted for its oversized head.
