Tips on Getting the Right Golf Driver

Aug 9, 2008
When you are looking at using a golf driver you must consider several things. You cannot just use any driver when you are on the golf course. You should consider the material, length, weight, shaft, and the head of the driver before you make a decision.

The materials of golf drivers are most commonly made from steel, titanium, and composite. The three are very different and should be considered when you are looking for the right driver.

The steel driver is the least expensive. The steel is the heaviest driver. They are traditional looking and more metallic. The heads on a steel driver are smaller because they have steel weights as well. These drivers are reliable, solid, and durable. You can guarantee a consistent connection with the ball every time you need it.

Titanium is the best driver you can buy and the most expensive driver. That is because they are lightweight drivers with a large head on the end. This helps a golfer be able to increase the spot and gives you the ability to hit some excellent shots even if you are off center. The titanium driver is known for saving people from needing extra shots in a round of golf.

The composite driver combines titanium with non-metal materials. These are lightweight clubs that have a relatively smaller head on them. The driver's weight is centered near the face which is supposed to give the golfer a larger sweet spot. There is no sacrifice of distance with a composite driver and they are lightweight.

The head of a driver can make all of the difference in the world when it comes to the long shots you need to take. Traditionally, the head of the driver used to be made from wood. However, today they are constructed from other materials like titanium and composite. It is said that the drivers with the composite materials on the head are the best. However, you want to verify the size of the head and the angle of the clubface. The angle of the clubface with determine the loft you get when you hit the ball off the tee. The higher the angle, the more loft you get.

The shaft is another consideration when you are looking at golf drivers. Things you want to consider in the shaft include the length and the materials. If you want to be within the regulations of the USGA, you must have a driver between 40 and 48 inches. Strength is important for the shaft because you want to be sure it doesn't break when you swing. The materials of a shaft are usually made of graphite because it allows for a higher rate of speed in your swing. This allows for greater force and in return increases the length of your drive.

Finding the right driver is essential when you want to play golf. You need to think about the type of driver that is right for you. Weight should be considered along with the materials and more.
