2020 Golf Drivers

Golf drivers are all about the distance and power of a shot, fine-tuning trajectory and achieving excellent accuracy on the greens. Good knowledge of golf drivers will help improve player performance, while understanding loft and shafts can also add more experience to a players’ performance. This buying guide to 2020 golf drivers has everything a player should know about getting the best possible return from their game when using the driver in their bag.

Top drivers on the market include the Cobra Golf King F9 Speedback Driver in which the engineers at Cobra created the driver with a first of its kind carbon wrap crown, which wraps around the body to make the carbon crown area about 12% larger. This lightweight construction combines with 360 polymer crown trips and PWR ridges on the crown, and highly aerodynamic shape to deliver maximum speed and stability.

The Callaway Golf Epic Flash Sub Zero Driver features Jailbreak Technology. This essentially changes the way the head and clubface behave at impact to deliver more ball speed and distance. Jailbreak is 2 strong titanium bars (both just 3g) behind the face, parallel to each other and connected on either end to the crown and sole. The size, strength and location of each Jailbreak bar work together to reduce how much the crown and sole deflect, forcing the face to take on more of the load created at impact than ever before. This results in faster ball speeds across the entire face offering more consistent distances, even on miss-hits.

The PING G410 SFT Driver lets you achieve more distance performance, with this fully customisable driver from PING. The G410 driver has an aerodynamic crown and more efficient turbulators, hotter forged face, and a movable weight for custom shot shaping. The SFT offers heel-biased weighting to provide a straighter ball flight trajectory, this is ideal for golfers who have an undesirable fade.

What is a Driver? - Some golf drivers are larger than others. Most brands adhere to the USGA’s legal clubhead volume (460cc), but always check to make sure the golf club is game-worthy before taking ot the golf course. The larger the head size, the larger “sweet spot” there will be to promote improved consistency, accuracy and distance. Smaller driver heads come in around 380cc-410cc and allow for better players with greater swing control to achieve repeatable hits and controllable golf ball trajectory
The weight of club drivers also changes much less frequently between brands as the head size. Internal and external weighting helps golfers hit a fade or draw, while also helping to adjust golf ball flight for higher or lower performances. Whether the player prefers weight screws, sliders, lightweight carbon crowns or a unique head shape, there’s a high-performance driver out there for everyone which matches their needs.

2020 Wilson Driver

High-Handicap Drivers - Golfers playing with a high handicap should decide if they want a driver in their bag as, notoriously, this is the hardest club in the bag to use consistently. However, master it and will hold you in good stead going forward.

The majority of drivers all come in different loft options. Usually from 7-13 degrees. As a beginner, you should aim to look for a driver with as much loft as available to give you as much forgiveness as possible. A driver is definitely worth considering due to the extra distance that's possible from the tee. Ultimately, this will leave you a shorter second shot towards the green. The driver is designed to be used from the tee area only and not the fairway.

2020 TaylorMade Driver

Mid-Handicap Drivers - Most of the same rules which apply to high handicap golfers also apply with mid/high handicaps, too. Playing at this level, it is a good idea to try reducing forgiveness and increasing performance. Golfers who play within the mid-handicap bracket often opt for less loft and higher quality shafts to increase speed on all shots. It is also now commonplace for golfers to use drivers which offer adjustability to give greater success on more shots.

2020 Titleist Driver

Low-Handicap Drivers - Low handicap golfers will benefit more by opting for a wider variety of shaft/head options, including matching their current swing speed, golf ball speed and launch condition. Most top golf brands create golf drivers with compact, workable heads, and these will undoubtedly help enhance a game, so should be considered when purchasing drivers.
