Adjustable Weights When reading golf driver reviews you might hear the term "adjustable weights". Some modern-day drivers have adjustable weights in the sole or internal weighting to help golfers reduce a slice or hook. For the most part this feature is pretty limited to a small percentage of new golf drivers. If an adjustable weight system does not sound like a desirable feature slice golfers should choose a driver with a draw bias while hook golfers should choose a driver with a slice bias. Additional Technological Advancements Most manufacturers today are continuously pushing the envelope with regards to USGA limits. There is a limitation of 5900 gram-centimeter squared with regards to Moment of Inertia (MOI). This term refers to the clubheads resistance to twisting when off-center shots are made. The greater the MOI rating the more forgiveness that golfers will receive from off-center shots.
This is the reason you see professional golfers in the fitness room these days. They want to add yards to their drives and prevent injuries. The final way to increase distance is your equipment. Once you know your swing you can then look to optimize your driver to "fit" your swing and produce the longest shots. This requires no work on your golf swing or any strength training and in most cases can add quite a few extra yards. This is by far the easiest way to add distance. There are many things that go into optimizing a driver. The following things all must be accurately measured for the particular player hitting the ball: swing weight shaft flex shaft kick point torque shaft length overall club weight club head (including aerodynamics center of gravity etc.) and more.
Also if you ever move too much laterally or parallel to the target line during the driver swing youll end up striking a fat shot. In a fat shot the club head typically strikes the ground first after which it makes contact with the golf ball resulting in a lot less energy being transferred to the golf ball and resulting in a much shorter shot. In addition if you have a tendency to squeeze your body or straighten your back while youre within your downswing it is going to lead to a thin hit or even a topped hit. If sometimes your hips move forward and backward or sideways then this may also result in a thin hit.
