And now almost every driver on the market offers some form of adjustment or tweak that can be made by the player to tailor the club to their style of play. As one starts on the journey to find their best golf driver the first thing you run into is a sea of terms that make little to no sense. Terms like: CG location head size and depth loft angle face angle lie angle forgiveness shaft flex and more. If you are an average golfer and get out to the links every so often these terms might mean very little to you. But all these things are very valuable information in trying to find a driver to carry in your bag every golf outing.
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.
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.
