Golf Driver Buying Guide: What Material And Model Are Suitable With You

With many models on the market, choosing the right golf driver can be a bit tricky. To limit the selection, in this article we will only analyse 2 important criteria that need to be considered when buying a most forgiving golf driver.

 What material?

A golf driver is a big part, with which one at long holes of the tea is beaten. The size of the driver’s head is given in cubic centimeters – 460cm³ is the maximum allowed volume. The basic rule is to hit the golf ball as far as possible – best along the fairway because it usually does not make an impression with your fellow players, nor improves your points if you hit the ball for miles into the forest.

Almost all today’s golf drivers have a head made of carbon fiber along with titanium composite materials that are lighter than steel, allowing a large head with a large sweet spot to be produced. They have very dull striking surfaces, which make trampoline effects, i.e. The face therefore gives way to the hit moment, but snaps back very fast and accelerates the ball for even more length.

Perhaps you have also heard of the fact that some golf drivers have been declared illegal or “non-conforming” – for competitions since January 2008. The technical bounds for trampoline effect is coefficient – the maximum allowed is 0.83. Simply put, if you hit a ball with an impact speed of 100km / h, the face bounce back at 84km / h. Higher rebound speeds would make the bat illegal.

Which model?

It is well known that all manufacturers declare that their golf drivers are the longest / most forgiving etc. In fact, the modern golf drivers of top manufacturers are great devices. And the choice depends on appearance and feeling, budget and favourite (if you had one – if you have none, do not worry!). In addition to standard models, we can that some manufacturers are now offering ‘offset’, ‘draw’ or ‘neutral’ versions. We will explain the reason.

The overwhelming majority of all golfers play with Slice (i.e., the right hand the ball goes unintentionally to the right). This happenwhen theface of club is open too much (i.e., it points more to the right than it needs to be). The hands of the player are in the hit moment ‘behind the ball’ and not ‘before the ball’, as with a great swing.

The manufacturers try to compensate for the problem mentioned above in two different ways. On the other hand, weight is placed within the head (something heavy, usually tungsten) that helps to keep the head ‘closed’. A draw is a light spin of the ball from right to left. That’s why there are draw generating golf drivers.

Weighting of the racket can be adapted to their personal needs – which places the adjustability in a new level compared to the reworked racquets. You of course cannot adjust the settings of your golf driver during the round – but if you have a place in the one week that helps you a fade, but in the other week you have to play with draw, you have that agolf driver that fits both.
