Golf Driver Frequently Asked Questions
How to use a golf driver?
A golf driver is usually used on longer holes like Par 4s or 5s due to the distance you are able to hit it. It is known for being one of the toughest clubs to use because it’s shaft is the longest length out of any club in your bag and is also the lowest lofted club. When using a golf driver, you need a wide stance to compensate for the size of the club and to maintain your balance throughout. You should also position the ball on your front foot (left foot if you are a right handed golfer). A wide stance means you can take a larger backswing and make a good strike through the golf ball on the follow through, literally driving it forwards towards the fairway. Keep your hands high up the club and point the butt of it at your waistband or belt buckle and tilt your hips backwards away from it. Pull back, and swing!
How to find the best golf driver?
The best golf driver for you is personal to your needs. For example, the driver shaft you opt for should be proportionate to your swing speed. These can come in regular, womens, senior, stiff & extra stiff. You should also consider the club’s centre of gravity, its forgiveness factor (or moment of inertia), and shaft balance. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, we’d recommend booking a fitting.
Which golf driver gives the longest distance?
Golf drivers known for the longest distance come from well-known brands like Callaway, PING, Cobra, TaylorMade, and Titleist.
How to choose a golf driver for beginners?
The best golf drivers for beginners are, first and foremost, forgivable. Professional golf drivers tend to be designed to deliver fast swing speeds and heightened playability but are not very friendly to beginners or even recreational players. Golf drivers with big heads are for ease of hitting, lighter shafts with a regular flex for ease of swing, and higher loft are all factors to opt for in the best golf drivers for beginners. They make your first steps into golf much easier, and you can upgrade to different variations as your game progresses.
