The Sizzling New Drivers of 2018


When it comes to drivers, it remains all about adjustability, using various weights and alignment tools to customize your big stick so that it performs best for your specific swing speed and ball flight.

If I told you that adjustable hosels were not legal a little over a decade ago you would probably laugh. Well, that’s right. Of course, they are now allowed under the Rules of Golf, much to the delight of players everywhere, from pros to weekend duffers.

The drivers of 2018 continue with this trend and a driver without some sort of adaptability is virtually unheard of in the highly competitive and tech-fueled marketplace. Drivers are still being made with oversized clubheads, and clubfaces have been tweaked with new materials and designs to make them provide more power, even on off-center hits. Look at a driver produced, oh, say, back in the mid 1990s and you might be amazed that we ever hit the club with any kind of accuracy and distance.

There is no doubt that today’s drivers are more functional for the average player than ever before. True, the overall scores of recreational golfers remain about the same, mainly because it still comes down to having great skill at chipping and putting. And courses have gotten tougher over the years. But oversized, thin-faced drivers with adjustable weighting have helped us to find more fairways and hit the ball farther than we ever have. And that, my friends, has made the game more fun to play.

So, let’s take a look at the best of the bunch in 2018.
