Golf Driver Reviews | 2011 Men's Clubs

Men's DriverLet the big dog eat! For me, these are the most fun clubs to swing. If you don’t feel the same way, then this summary is especially for you.

The 1st thing I look for in a driver is something with a big ol’ forgiving clubhead, but not so huge that it looks like I could be ironing my clothes with it. I also am more partial to the traditional pear shaped clubs (see below) then the crazy geometric shapes, but that’s just my personal preference, some of my friends really love the new aerodynamic clubhead designs.

Aerodynamics – For those of you less interested in choosing the shape of your ball flight and just looking to hit it straight and long consistently, I would recommend trying one of these clubs shaped like a jet wing. My two favorites are the Taylormade Burner SuperFast and the Adams Speedline Fast 10.

Adjustable – Another great advancement in driver technology is the adjustable driver head. I was late to get on this train, but now I’m leading the charge as well as most of the low handicappers that I play with. The most popular is the Taylormade R9. My good friend Brian bought one of these about two months ago. He adjusted the driver head slightly closed. When his typical fade became a draw he added 20 yards to his drives. (It is not something that I am really excited about, because he is hitting it further than me now.) I also like the adjustable Mizuno MP-630 FastTrack.

Workable – Finally for those of you who like to make the ball talk and adjust your ball flight to the specific hole, you should stay away from the gargantuan driver heads. Titleist still is the best choice for playability. The traditional pear shape 909s are the way to go. The 909D2 is the bigger of the two at 460cc. The 909D3 has a smaller 440cc clubhead that provides for a lower launch angle and the ultimate in workability.

Nike Men’s Round Driver, SQ MachSpeed Black

New Adjustable Club from Golf Digest 2011 Hot List

Nike Men’s Round Driver, SQ MachSpeed Black | New Adjustable Club from Golf Digest 2011 Hot List

I have to come clean: I've never been a big fan of the MachSpeeds. They have improved them, though. Both the square and round ones have bigger faces with more aerodynamic shapes. Nike has dialed down the extreme shape and made it a bit sleeker.

The round ...





Nike SQ MachSpeed Black Square Driver

Adjustable Golf Digest 2011 Hot List

Nike SQ MachSpeed Black Square Driver | Adjustable Golf Digest 2011 Hot List

I will say that Nike has improved this driver over last year's model. The face is larger, and the shape is sleeker. Having said that, it's like saying Toyota improved the Corolla. It's still a Corolla.

And like a Corolla, this club will get you from ...

From Golf Digest 2011 Hot List, Best New Clubs

Ping G15 Driver Review | From Golf Digest 2011 Hot List, Best New Clubs

When it comes to hot faces, I rank Ping and Nike at the top. There is no science behind this opinion -- just my own experiences and those stud golfers that I play with. One of those said studs in my foursome showed up with this driver earlier ...

There's no doubt that this driver was the best new product of 2011. I see these Oreo cookie-looking things all over the place. They're on the Tours and all over the muni's that I play. Maybe it's just that I notice them more because they stand out ...

Titleist 910 D3 Driver Review | Golf Digest 2011 Hotlist, 455cc Black Adjustable

Dear Santa,

Remember me?  I’m the one that promised you that if I got the Sky Caddy last year, I’d quit throwing my clubs and fix all my divots and ball marks.  And for the most part, I stuck to our deal.  Surely you can understand me losing my temper last ...

Cleveland Launcher DST Driver Review | UltraLite RH w/ Mitsubishi Red 44 Graphite Shaft

Driver technology: an area that could send a NASA engineer into orbit, much less the average golfer just looking for 10 more yards on his tee ball. Cleveland golf makes another entry into this market with the Cleveland Launcher DST Driver.

This driver features what Cleveland calls "MaxCOR Face ...





Wilson Smooth Driver Review

460cc w/ Fujikara Graphite Shaft

Wilson Smooth Driver Review | 460cc w/ Fujikara Graphite Shaft

"Smooth" is what Wilson named this new driver. Based on their literature, the name mostly has to do with its smooth, mostly understated styling. With a head size of 460cc, this driver compares with most others in the current market, but it doesn't have much of a "wow" ...

I can't believe my eyes. TaylorMade's new 2011 driver is going smaller! What happened to the modern day adage "bigger is better?" I just assumed by 2011 we'd have clubheads about the size of microwave ovens.

Au Contraire, my young apprentice -- TaylorMade is abandoning this theory for ...

"Don't swing angry!" as my golf buddy, Joe, is fond of saying. Usually, he mutters this sarcastic statement after I just three-jacked the previous hole. Ironically enough, some of my straightest, longest drives come when I'm fuming over a three putt.
