Best Budget Golf Drivers 2018
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.
Once a swing pattern is established there is always an "optimal". The driver that is optimal for your swing will get you the most distance for your particular swing. I have always been intrigued by the fact that the players in the Remax Long Drive Championships DO NOT use major manufacturers such as Calloway or Titleist or Ping. Since these players do not receive large endorsements and every yard is desired out of every swing you would think these guys use what hits the ball the furthest. And although we might not need or be able to swing a 50 inch driver we all need more distance and I think the clubs these long drivers use are probably the best made for maximizing distance. Instead of the popular named brands we see the long drivers currently using two main driver companies Geek and Krank. Geek and Krank are the leaders in long driver golf equipment. It makes sense to me that most of us regular golfer should be using these types of drivers to add yardage to our swings. You do not have to get a long driver length shaft in these clubs.
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.
The face also has variable thickness technology for the highest possible ball speed. The G10 combines the sole crown and face designs very efficiently to prevent energy loss. The Ping G10 Golf Driver has three different shafts available for it. The first two are the Grafalloy ProLaunch Red and the UST Proforce V2 High Launch 65. The third is the TFC 129D which stands for Tip Flex Control. This high torque shaft is designed special for the G10. The TFC 129D comes in regular (R) stiff (S) and extra stiff (X) flexes. The Ping G10 Draw version has heel biased internal weighting and a hosel shifted forward in relation to the face to help create a right-to-left ball flight. The G10 is a very slick looking driver.
