2015 promises to be a great year for drivers. With all the biggest brands playing their hands early in the season, golfers have already been inundated with scores of fresh designs, better technologies and enhanced aerodynamics to improve their game. However, no matter how good a driver might be, or how much a golfer might be commit to one brand, it’s always wise to do some swatting up to make sure the driver which goes into your bag deserves to be there.

Do you seek unparalleled distance off the tee? Does your trajectory need fine-tuning? How about shot accuracy? Or shot shaping? There might be a wealth of new product on the market, but choosing the right golf clubs in 2015 will make a huge difference to how a player’s season unfolds. And golf drivers make up a large portion of that success. It’s the powerhouse in every golfer’s toolkit; it’s the signal of intent to an opponent. Choose the right golf driver in 2015 and it could be a very profitable season.

High-Handicap/Beginner Drivers

Whether just starting out or playing consistently at a higher handicap, golfers should be sure to grab the correct driver to support their skill level at this stage if they hope to improve over time and eventually upgrade.

Contrary to belief, there's plenty of option out there for golfers dipping their toes into the game for the first time. It doesn’t matter that you’ve rarely swung a golf club, or that you aren’t confident in your ability yet; these drivers will add confidence and skill to everyone's game. The Callaway Golf XR Driver is perfect for new golfers as it offers plenty of forgiveness and outrageous speed, while also delivering professional results on the the course. The Speed Step Crown combined with optimised aerodynamics reduces drag and maximises swing speed to instil confidence in every swing, making it ideal for high-handicap and mid-handicap golfers.

For ladies, the PING Golf Ladies Rhapsody Driver is a gorgeously-designed club which plays to the golfers skills. Longer, more forgiving and promoting higher launch speeds, it’s testament to PING just how impressive this driver performs.

Mid-High Handicap and Game Improver Drivers

Many of the same rules which apply to high handicap golfers also apply here. Although if you play at this level then it’s a good idea to try reducing forgiveness and increasing performance. Golfers who play within the mid-handicap bracket often opt for less loft and stiffer 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.

To get the absolute best from playing mid-handicap, lots of golfers have found great success using the Nike Vapor Pro Driver and close relative Nike Vapor Flex Driver - both of which offer incredible precision-tuned distance and NexCOR face technology. Golfers who are feeling a little more confident and think they’re almost ready to play low-handicap should consider having the Adams Golf Blue Driver, Benross Hot Speed Driver or any of the Cobra Golf Fly-Z range in their bag to really get a feel for playing with a club of the highest performance level.

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. Many top golf brands create golf drivers with compact, workable heads and these will undoubtedly help enhance a game and should be considered when purchasing drivers in 2015 and beyond.

The TaylorMade Golf AeroBurner Driver is a wonderful option for male and female golfers wanting to experience the very best driver quality at their disposal. Advanced 460cc aerodynamic shape, an open channel speed pocket an aero hosel fin with raised centre crown all mesh together to create one of the best experiences a player can have with their driver.

Sticking with TaylorMade, and it’s the R15 Driver which has had some of the worlds’ best golfers drooling thanks to its incredible game-changing abilities. Playable for golfers of mid to low handicaps, the R15 Driver is available for both men and women and is capable of producing scorching distances due to its new front track system and sliding split weight. The 460cc head offers higher launch and lower spin for exceptional results every time.
