With so many different pieces of equipment out on the market, it can be confusing and overwhelming to shop for drivers without knowing exactly what you are looking for. If you are not sure how to pick out the driver that is specifically best for you, check out some tips on how you can find a great match:
Know what head size you are looking for.
The head size of the driver determines the amount of power of the shot and how much impact it will offer you. Usually, the more skilled you are, the smaller the head size will be.
Know what head shape you are looking for.
There are several different types of head shapes on drivers, some being round, some square and some extended. For beginners, a round head shape is convenient since it is less bulky, and it will not get caught on the grass.
Know what material you prefer.
Drivers are available in a variety of different materials, including aluminum, titanium, stainless steel and more! Stainless steel is a common, less expensive option for players just starting out. While titanium is a little pricier, it offers outstanding performance and is great to invest in.
Know what loft is best for you.
The loft determines the angle of the face of the head, and heavily impacts distance as well as speed. You should ultimately choose a loft based on your personal assessed speed.
