Low Profile Golf Driver
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.
The all-titanium driver was introduced by Callaway in 1995 and has since undergone product enhancements to suit golfer requirements. Modern technology has made possible greater distance and forgiveness and weight that have been redistributed to the perimeter. Leave it to Callaway to create drivers thats lightweight yet can increase speed and distance of the ball. As far as novice players are concerned key factors when choosing a driver is ease of use. Even newbies out playing golf during weekends want to show off to friends or pros that they can play well so they invest in a fabulous-looking and powerful driver they can rely on to enhance their game.
There are some adjustments to be made in terms of stance and ball positioning but the reality is that there are 13 golf clubs but only 1 golf swing. The driver is larger and more difficult to control than the irons. This means: 2) It is especially important to swing the club by rotating your torso not by just swinging your arms. Many players get away with using their arms to swing with the short irons but have trouble swinging longer golf irons and have extra trouble with their golf driver swing. Keep your back straight and rotate your shoulders along with your arms. Your arms should move with your shoulders as one unit.
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.
