Is it Time for a New Driver?
According to Golf Digest, if your driver is more than four years old, you are losing 6 to 11 yards! (See their article here). Now that may not seem like much, but it can be as much as one club shorter into that favorite par 4! That my friend means lower scores…and more fun!
And, even better, accuracy has improved on off center hits, especially low and toe shots. Whether is is “twist face”, “jail break” or “dual roll” technology, every driver manufacturer has made distance AND forgiveness a mantra this year. Our first fittings with these new drivers are very encouraging!
Every year, we also put the new drivers to the test with our players. So far the tests on all the new drivers from Callaway, TaylorMade, Cobra, Mizuno and Ping are improving both accuracy AND distance. We will be publishing our own reports in the next few weeks. We have testers from every genre so no holds barred! Stay tuned.
