It's the king of clubs and the one that fills you with the most confidence if you can drive the ball consistently off the tee. Here's six of the best female golf drivers on the market.
With equipment technology constantly evolving it can be hard to know what to look for when purchasing a new driver. Individual preference and swing dynamics will play a large role in deciding which driver is best suited to you, but with each manufacturer using a multitude of buzzwords to convince you to choose their model, it’s easy to get swamped down in the jargon.
The first thing to think about when purchasing a new driver is what you’re looking for: workability, forgiveness, or distance. While most modern drivers will incorporate an element of all three, all clubs will be targeted primarily at one of these options, so it’s important to know which you’re looking for. Adjustability is now commonplace and the majority of models on the market will include a feature which enables the user to customise the club to suit their needs. This comes in a variety of forms, but usually incorporates interchangeable weights to adjust the spin and shape on the shot. Don’t forget that aesthetics is also important, if you feel uncomfortable at address then it’s unlikely that the club is the right one for you.
PING Ge L Driver
Engineered specifically for women, the G Le drivers utilises a T9S face (PING’s thinnest ever) to match their swing speeds and produce higher ball speeds for more distance and optimal launch angle and spin. The 460cc titanium head features the company’s iconic crown turbulators, as well as Vortec Technology to improve aerodynamics for maximum clubhead speed. As with the hugely popular G driver, Dragonfly technology better positions the centre of gravity for more forgiveness and consistency, while a lighter swingweight produces an overall straighter ball flight.
Cobra KING F7 Driver
The KING F7 Driver debuts as COBRA's first connected golf club, powered by Arccos technology, enabling golfers to receive immediate performance data from their club onto their smartphone. By pairing an ultralight sensor that’s embedded in the grip with a downloadable app, players can automatically track the distance and accuracy of every drive. Equipped with three centre of gravity settings for maximum distance, the club can be adjusted according to a player’s shot shape, allowing three very different ball flights to be produced from the same club. The KING F7 driver also features a re-engineered Forged Ti-811 E9 Face that is lighter, thinner and hotter, creating faster ball speeds and a larger Sweet ZoneTM across the face.
Wilson Staff D300
The D300 Driver is one of the lightest and fastest adjustable drivers on the market. A new aerodynamic head shape, coupled with protruding Micro Vortex Generators, reduces drag force to increase clubhead speed and deliver greater distance. The Green Means GO! Fast Fit technology enables players to make quick loft and lie adjustments by eliminating the need to remove the club head from the shaft. While Right Light Technology, with an interchangeable weight, permits golfers to swing faster with the same effort. A six-way adjustable hosel (including three draw options) covers three loft settings (12.5°, 13.5° & 14.5°), allowing players to attain their ideal launch angle, ball speed and spin rate from the tee.
Callaway Great Big Bertha Epic Driver
Escape your driving woes with the revolutionary new Great Big Bertha Epic, which represents an impressive shift in clubhead technology, enabling you to harness your yardage potential. Epic’s power is based on the innovative new Jailbreak Technology, which changes the fundamental way the head and face behave at impact to deliver more ball speed and distance. With the key structural components of a metalwood constructed in a way in which they can influence each other’s dynamics, the Jailbreak Technology creates a remarkably efficient club which promotes more ball speed across a much larger area of the face.
Lynx Crystal Driver
Lynx's Crystal adjustable driver is designed to deliver outstanding performance and playability for lady golfers on a more modest budget. With a high-quality 460cc Beta titanium head, the Crystal is fully-adjustable with lofts of 9, 9.5, and 10 degrees, while the 11D, 11.5D and 12D settings increase the lofts even further and add a draw bias - to help eliminate slicing. The driver offers great forgiveness, easy ball striking to inspire confidence and the high loft promotes a strong ball flight for maximum carry. The Lynx Crystal driver has a Lynx XLR8-100 graphite shaft fitted as standard and comes with grips that match the colour of the head and shaft.
Yonex EZONE XPG
The EZONE XPG features an expanded carbon graphite on the crown for an ultra-low and deep centre of gravity, whilst also producing higher trajectory with reduced spin for greater distance and utmost forgiveness. A heavy head design (205g) with a counterbalance grip (20g of Tungsten at butt end) generates greater head speeds for more distance, while a lightweight shaft also ensures maximum yards off the tee. The driver also showcases the Quick Adjust System, which allows the loft to be altered by up to +/- 1.5 degrees, ensuring golfers find the ideal distance enhancing ball flight on their drives.
