Nicklaus Golf Driver
Every golfer wants to improve their golf driver swing. The drive sets up every other shot for the hole and a good drive can be the difference between an easy par or birdie chance and a struggle to make bogey. Driving the ball far is also one of the funnest parts of the game but the secret to long drives is not in the golf club you use but rather in your ability to swing. When most golfers step on the golf course theyre not confident in their ability to swing all their clubs. Many amateurs have practiced their golf iron game but have serious trouble transferring that swing to the driver. As such many find it hard to believe but it is absolutely true that: 1) The golf driver swing is fundamentally the same as the iron swing. You have to know this to be true.
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.
Hitting the sweet spot will result in longer shots with the same swing speed. Another way to increase distance is to simply swing faster. If you can keep your contact quality the same the ball will go further. These improvements are usually attained by improving your swing or by diligent practice. Another factor that we are learning increases driver distance is the angle of attack at which we swing the club into the ball. Studies using the advanced launch monitor Trackman Pro have shown that with a swing speed of 90 mph (average for male amateur players) a change in angle of attack from minus five degrees to plus 5 degrees will increase driver shots by 20 yards or more. Obviously if you hit down on your driver you would want to change this if you can. You can improve your golf swing by increasing your "golf fitness". You can do drills that strengthen the right muscles allowing you to swing faster.
Kinds of drivers There are three golf driver types according to the material that they are made of: the alloy drivers stainless steel and forged titanium. Alloy golf drivers have shafts made of stainless steel or graphite and Ti Alloy heads. They are great for driving the ball into the first course. Stainless steel drivers on the other hand come with hard and strong heads and are the most common choices among the golf driver types. They have compact heads and are heavier than the alloy and titanium varieties. Finally there are the forged titanium drivers. These golf drivers are composed of titanium heads and shafts that are made of lightweight graphite.
