Golf equipment development changes at a rapid rate and the use of Artificial Intelligence to bring these changes to the market are nothing short of astounding. Golf club manufacturers’ emphasis is on 3 main areas. The use of lighter materials to increase clubhead speed and add extra distance is a priority. Secondly, moving the material around the head and the face allows for precise positioning of the CG, which enhances ball speed, spin, and launch angle. Thirdly, forgiveness on mis-hits, and feel through impact are important, especially to amateur players.

The hand-shaped head is strikingly beautiful and sits well at address. The face interacts with the radial-face rib technology for a high COR and increased ball speed. New ARMRQ 5S shafts are manufactured from sophisticated materials and new high strength, shape memory twist fleuret material increases energy transfer for increased distance. Other fibers are added for stability and counter swing balance. Only the best quality Honma rubber grips ensure comfort and a superb feel. Available in 3 lofts: 9,5, 10,5, and 11,5.
Titleist is a leading brand in the golf industry and innovation is their second name! The latest series of TS drivers are deemed to be the best in their range. Various models are available for different characteristics, but all will deliver on performance.
The TSi3 is designed for accomplished golfers who require a tighter shot pattern on every drive. An Adjustable CG Track Design allows the player to speed-tune the driver to his preference, for ultimate performance. Using a unique ATI 425 Aerospace Titanium in the face, creates increased ball speed, across the entire face. An improved aerodynamic head design looks good and square at address, and is faster through the air, for longer tee shots. Stability is enhanced even with the high MOI created. Drivers are all about confidence and the Titleist TSi3 inspires golfers to let it rip through impact.
TaylorMade has introduced plenty of new technology into their golf clubs and the latest SIM 2 Max Driver will please all TaylorMade fans. They have reinvented the shape for faster more aerodynamic performance on every swing. The new Forged Ring Construction from lightweight and high-strength aluminum, combines the rear weight, full carbon sole, crown, and milled back cup face for optimum performance. The Thru-Slot Speed Pocket, Speed Injected Twist Face, and SIM Inertia Generator produce faster ball speeds and distance while compensating for low strikes or mis-hits across the face. Forgiveness is enhanced with Split Mass Weighting. Easy high launch with spin control, produces straighter, longer tee shots.
A premium driver for the discerning golfer who requires something special in looks and performance. The stylish design is typical of Muira’s old tradition of producing premium drivers which will meet all expectations. A Floating Weight Structure with a weight stored in the sole of the club places the COG in a position to deliver a more solid energy transfer through impact while controlling spin. Stability is increased with the honeycomb design on the sole of the club. A weight port allows for up to 8 grams to be inserted into the heel of the club.
The Majesty Prestigio offers world-leading tradition and workmanship demanded by the golfer seeking premium performance and style. Maruman’s proprietary high modulus tough titanium face, with a long-lasting gold ion-plated sole and clubface, is incorporated in the elegant clubhead design. The ruby finished top crown is dazzling! It is pure luxury, and the 460cc head sits perfectly at address, inspiring confidence. The lightweight shaft ensures increased flex through impact adding extra meters to the tee shot. Slow swing golfers or senior players will benefit from this magnificent combination, of styles, elegance, and performance.
PXG has introduced the Gen 4 driver which matches the performance of its predecessors. Increasing its popularity and market share, the Gen 4 delivers performance, power, and forgiveness. A hybrid crown with titanium in the heel and toe increases the durability and stiffness of the structure, resulting in optimal spring and faster ball speeds through impact. The CG is lowered with the carbon fiber center reducing mass on the top of the clubhead. MOI is increased and trajectory is optimized for greater distance. Decreased spin allows straighter ball flight, and more fairways to hit. PXG utilizes Aluminum Vapor technology to increase the stability of the carbon fiber.
XXIO X is the latest offering from their stable, and it presents lightweight technology and club design to suit the mid to low handicap player. All players seek that extra clubhead speed through impact and the X model provides the solution. The 460cc head sits well at address and inspires confidence to swing the driver without fear! A lightweight carbon fiber sole redistributes weight for forgiveness and an improved launch trajectory. The powerful cup face delivers faster ball speeds across the face for impressive distance off the tee. Balance points are improved with brass and rubber weights inserted in the butt-end of the club, producing consistency in each swing.
The driver is the second most used club after the putter, and finding a driver that works for your game, will reduce your handicap almost immediately. Playing from the fairway consistently makes the game easier, and the confidence to hit it well brings confidence to the rest of your game. Deciding on how much money to spend on a driver, is a personal choice. If finance is not a problem, then test these drivers out on the range, BUT, a word of warning. The price tag on the driver will not improve your swing, so think wisely before splashing out on one of these. It may be more prudent to use the extra cash for some lessons!
