As for big headed drivers , personally found more clubhead speed and directional forgiveness using a 12 degree two wood. The 12° Mini probably requires an above average swing speed to be effective from the fairway, so if that is not you then the 14° would still be a good choice as the larger head and slightly longer shaft should still go further than the equivalent fairway. The Tour 75 is also heavier than the Tour 65. The 460cc club heads have larger faces, and the weight is designed to fall into the lower back portion of the club head. On the range the Trackman data showed little or no decrease in ball speed when hit from the deck or the tee and that impressive stat was due to the SpeedPocket.
I have always struggled with the big stick mainly as I can't get on with the size of head. I'm here to tell you that's just not true. Ping has long been known for their innovative and straightforward designs that translate to lower scores and better performance on the course. Hi Don and Doc, I enjoyed your recent broadcast from Australia. Most of the time, golfers have drivers that feature clubheads that are way too big. The M2 is worthy of every accolade it receives. Cobra also offers the Fujikura Pro 60 senior shaft with the King F7 to provide the additional flex seniors value off the tee.
On the G400 drivers, the Dragonfly pattern extends all the way to the back of the crown to make it more visually appealing. I hope the results continue through the winter. More succinctly, the M2 is the best driver for seniors, period. I have to say I was really impressed. Some of the tour players have smaller driver heads but they are not made for the retail market. I've been in the fairway a lot more often lately. Keep your eyes open for email blasts with more information.
As strange as it might sound, Ping engineers studied the flying mechanics of a dragonfly to design the heads in their G series of drivers. The overall shape and balance of the head create a natural tendency for the right-handed player to put a slight draw on drives, ideal for maximizing distance. Since the club head must rotate counter clockwise for a right handed player to freely release the clubhead to the force of gravity and centrifugal force I cannot find a better way to take advantage of the club heads desire to rotate toe down. Tweaking the weight system can generate additional spin, height, and roll depending on how they are aligned. Wishing you fairways and greens along with more aces! Your thoughts and experience are greatly appreciated! Due to the weather and being generally busy I haven't played much since, but lately I've been managing to get out. Over the centuries, Golf technology has become more advanced and readily affordable to the general consumer. Players such as Tiger Woods, David Duval previously , and Paul Casey each played a 380cc driver head made for them by Nike.
When I search lead of a golf club it always returns as forward shaft lean. Better players who play golf a lot in wind or on links may like the option of a stronger lofted wood to hit from the fairway to keep the ball down. A zero loft means that the clubface is perpendicular to the ground, so the higher the loft, the more the ball is launched into the air. Modern technology has made golf equipment lighter, faster, and far more accurate than in the days of yore, where all it took to fill your golf bag were a few decent sticks of wood, a sharp whittling knife, and some time. At age 63 I know I'm not getting the most out of big head drivers like when I was younger.
This video futher explains the process of ideal club fitting. Despite sounding like something from a science fiction novel, Taylor Made has also integrated geoacoustic technology to utilize sound waves as a means of increasing performance. The wealth behind the golf industry, combined with advancements in golf equipment clubs and balls , and a drive to be the best, have boosted competition among golf manufacturers and impacted the types of equipment we play with today. Bottom line though is that it very definitely is possible to make a driver head with a volume of 380cc to 400cc that would perform every bit as well for distance and off center hit performance as any of the 460cc heads currently on the market. This also holds true for female players. What to Look for in a Driver for Seniors If the primary reason for losing driving distance is the reduction in club head speed, the obvious remedy is to find a driver that can increase it.
It's extra size make it more forgiving than a typical 3-wood, while its shorter shaft make it more reliable on tighter driving holes than a typical driver. Unfortunately my Mini 14 has disappeared from my bag, wonder where it has gone! However hitting it from the ground is where the SpeedPocket comes into its own, as it gives that extra ball speed to get even the 12° version up and away just as easily. I gave up about 25-30 yards --240 versus 265-270 in length, but I hit the mini with a lot more accuracy--80% in the fairway, and more often than not, straight down the middle. I thought I am a regular flex. It was actually a Doc built driver. . Although the back gives me he'll at times , I persist.
Here ease of play is essential. The overall weight and balance of the club also feels just right for me. I may consider getting another one like this one that is 10. As your swing speed increases, your ball speed will also increase, and you will cover more distance down the fairway. This covers more distance and results in fewer shots to the green. What really impressed me was off the fairway. Among major manufacturers, TaylorMade has introduced a couple versions over the last two years, and Callaway's line of fairway woods in recent years all have offered a deep-faced, slightly oversized, lower-lofted model, too.
Hence if all the golf companies could be convinced enough golfers would buy the smaller size driver to make it worth the expense to develop and introduce it, golfers would not skip a beat in terms of the performance they could achieve with a smaller size head. Using layered carbon shells within the club head also increases speed by reducing weight while the adjustable perimeter weights allow the player to find the balance that best suits their swing. My relation advised he had never got near this par 5 hole in two before and went on to score 75 on this par 72 course. To position the weight at any of those points, the golfer simply loosens the screw, slides the weight to the desired point, then tightens the screw — a process that make as little as 10 seconds. Off the tee was just like using a 3 wood, just a little longer. With the right driver, it is a guarantee that any golfer will shave strokes off their game. For example, when you look at our selection you will often find more flexible composites.
Hybrids are good for various course situations because they deliver the most accuracy even if they deliver the least amount of distance. Wishon for all your contributions to this wonderful game and thank you for taking the time to respond to your many fans. Skilled players often prefer smaller club heads for increased maneuverability. Although Cobra as a company was in intensive care not so long ago, clubs like the King F7 show they are back in a big way and ready to retake their position towards the top of the golfing world. The white, titianium head looks great at address and is possibly the best of the three for me. I live in New Zealand and have found it impossible to find a Driver head that is less than 440cc in size.
