G3 Golf Driver
Most Popular This Week
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.
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.

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.
