Choosing the Perfect
Teeing off has got to be one of the most
important aspects of the game. Getting the hole off to a good start can do
wonders for your confidence and ensure your remain positive for the entire
round. It is always nice to get that perfect first hit, which is why it is so
important to choose the right driver. This article will offer a few simple
ruling on how to choose your driver in order for you to optimise your playing
The Weight of the ClubThe
lighter the club the faster you should be able to swing it, the heavier the
club, the more control is offered to you. If you don’t have a strong swing it
would be wise for you to go with a lighter club.
The LengthPlayers will
find that a traditional driver will measure 43–44 inches, this is what most
players should find they should go for. Then you have the mid length drivers at
45-46 inches and then long drivers at over 46 inches. The longer drivers will
give you those longer tee shots but will offer you less control with your swing.
The Club HeadsThere are
three different sized club heads, each of them will have their own unique good
points, you have standard, midsize and oversize. The standard club head for a
driver offers a small sweet spot but counteracts that with more control. This is
good for slightly more experienced players. The larger the head then the bigger
the sweet spot and the more forgiveness a player will get with their swing.
The Shaft Players can
choose from either a steel shaft or a graphite shaft. A steel shaft will be
heavier which will offer more control over the swing. Graphite shafts will be
lighter and more expensive, but they will allow for a faster swing. When
choosing your club you should try and stick to the same material as the rest of
your golf clubs. This way you won’t have to keep adjusting your swing and style
when you change clubs.
The FlexDepending on what
your shaft is made from will depend on the flex of the club. A steel shaft will
be less flexible, the more flexible the shaft then the more forgiveness it will
offer. This will allow the player more chance of rescuing a shot when performing
an off centre hit. Graphite shafts are lighter therefore they will offer more
The Grip The grip of the
club will make a lot of difference. If the grip is too big it will alter the
swing quite sufficiently. Check the grips on your other clubs to ensure that
they match up so that you are not constantly altering your swing and grip for
each club you pick up.
The LoftThe loft is
important on to look at as this all depends on the type of ball flight which you
want. Most people want a penetrating ball flight that can give huge amounts of
distance. Some prefer a high ball flight which can overcome obstacles and leave
room for accuracy. Most people prefer a penetrating ball flight to ensure they
have roll on the ball to give more distance. Lofts start from 9 degrees and go
up to about 13 degrees. The best way to test what loft you do need is trial and
