The Golf Industry today has pushed the limits on driver designs relative to distance. The COR or coefficient of restitution is a term to describe a club’s ability to rebound the golf ball off the face of the club. The USGA and the R&A have limits on a clubs ability to advance the ball forward. So, you will see a lot of club design changes…But, they aren’t designed to hit the ball farther. The new designs are to help YOU to acheive two things: your personal optimal trajectory and distance and ACCURACY.
The only way to change distance is to increase clubhead speed and centeredness of contact on the surface of the driver. The big push now is to make sure that YOU the golfer are hitting fairways at YOUR optimal length. As we all know, it’s a lot more fun to play from the fairway than the rough. As an experienced tournament player, being in the fairway is essential to maximizing greens hit in regulation and ultimately lowering your scores.
So, let’s get out there and work hard on your drivers…not for distance, but for accuracy…and to maximize your optimal trajectory and distance, see your local qualified PGA professional for a custom fitting today. Happy Golfing!!
