Most likely, your golf driver is the most expensive club in your bag. With that, you want to get as much possible use out of the club as possible. Of course, you are already hitting it off the tee ten or more times per round, but are there other things you can use the driver for? While it might not be the most versatile club around, the golf driver doesn’t have to be relegated to just tee shot duty. If you get a little creative, and think outside the box, you can find other ways to use your driver to great effect on other shots.

Off the Deck

This is the most common place you see the golf driver used, other than off the tee. If you are trying to reach a par five hole in two shots, but your three wood won’t quite be enough to reach the green, consider trying to hit your driver right off the fairway. While this can be an effective strategy, it is also a little tricky to pull off correctly. Before you try it, go through the following checklist –

  • Do you have a good lie? You will probably need to have a good lie in the fairway or be propped up in the rough if you are going to execute the shot successfully.
  • Do you have room to run the ball up? Even though you could hit this shot a considerable distance, a lot of that distance will be on the ground when the ball is running up the fairway. Make sure the design of the hole allows for you to run it up at the green.
  • Have you practiced it? Like any other shot, it’s better to work on this play on the practice tee before you break it out on the course.

Put in a little time on the driving range to work on this specialty shot, and it could come in handy later on.

Bump and Run

There is no rule saying that your golf driver has to be used only on long shots. In fact, in certain situations around the green, it can be a good choice for a little bump and run shot. If you find your ball lying in light grass just a few feet off the edge of the green, with no deep grass between you and the target, consider using your driver for the shot. You can grip the club like you would your putter, and take it simply back and through like a putt to get the ball running toward the hole.

The advantage of using your golf driver in this scenario is that it is unlikely to get stuck in the grass like your wedge might. You should be able to just brush the club through the grass and pop the ball out with ease. Thanks to the size of the club head on your golf driver, it shouldn’t take much effort to get a considerable roll. Of course, you should practice this shot prior to using it during it a round.

These are just a couple of the potential uses you may find for your driver around the course. Keep your mind open and look for opportunities when the golf driver just might be the perfect tool for the task at hand.

While Wilson might not have the notoriety of some of the other big-name brands in golf today, there are still plenty of Wilson products worthy of your time and attention. Wilson is represented by at least a few Tour pros, an indication that they produce quality products that are able to be played at the highest levels of golf. The Wilson Staff FG Tour M3 driver is a good example of just the kind of products that Wilson is capable of offering to a wide range of golfers. With a clean look and square address position, plenty of golfers will find the M3 pleasing to the eye even before they put the club on the back of the ball.

Plenty of Club Head for Forgiveness

For many average golfers, forgiveness is an important element to find in a driver. At 460cc, the size of this Wilson M3 driver is able to provide a good deal of that forgiveness when the ball is hit a little bit out toward the toe or in toward the heel. Also, with a deep face design to the club head, you may not have to worry as much about getting under the ball and hitting the dreaded sky shot. That deep face design can do a good job of condensing the club head so that it doesn’t look so large at address, yet still does provide some forgiveness.

Keeping Up with the Adjustable Craze

Some of the popular drivers on the market today include adjustable features, and the FG Tour M3 is no different. There are a couple of different adjustable features on this Wilson driver, including different sole weights that you can use and six different loft settings. The sole weights can help giving the driver just the right feel for your personal swing, and you might find that you are able to generate some different ball flights simply by altering the weights you use. Changing the loft of the club can alter launch conditions, which can come in handy when you want to change how far you carry the ball and how much it rolls out.

A key to taking maximum advantage of these features is to experiment enough with them on the driving range until you find just the right ball flight that you would like to use on the course. In fact, it would be ideal if you can find two or three different setting combinations that generate unique ball flights that you like. That way, you can have various settings at your disposal to handle different conditions on the course. Going to a lower ball for a windy day or a higher ball on a wet day could help you maximize your performance.

The Wilson Staff FG Tour M3 driver is a club that might not have the prominence of some of the other drivers on the market today, but that doesn’t mean it is any less of a club. Try to locate one at a local golf store that you can try out for yourself to see just how much this driver has to offer. Don’t make the mistake of thinking you have to purchase a driver from one of the top two or three club companies – expand your horizons and you might be pleasantly surprised.

The decisions you make regarding your golf equipment don’t stop with the clubs that are in your bag. The golf ball you decide to play with is important, and if you want to get the best possible performance from your swing and your game, it’s great if the golf ball matches your skills. A golf ball that isn’t a good match for your swing can ruin all of the hard work that you have put into your swing, and leave you frustrated as to what is going wrong.

One mistake that is made by some amateur golfers is simply choosing a golf ball because they see it being used on television by their favorite golfer. Your swing probably isn’t very similar to that of your favorite player, so copying their choice of ball is probably not a good strategy. It’s better to pick a ball based on your particular skills and swing characteristics, not those of someone else.

Can You Handle the Spin?

Generally speaking, the more expensive a golf ball is, the more it will spin. Of course, that is not a hard and fast rule. If you are looking at top-of-the-line tour model golf balls, you can expect them to offer high spin rates. Is that a good thing? Well, it depends on whether or not you are able to control that spin and use it to your advantage.

An accomplished golfer who can control their ball flight should probably use a high-spin ball because it allows them to stop the ball quicker on the greens and provides for more feel on chip shots and putts. Nearly every professional golfer uses a quality ball that will spin and that fits their game.

The downside of that spin is that it can make your bad shots worse. For example, if you are a golfer who tends to fight a slice, a high-spin (expensive) golf ball could make your slice worse. Many golfers have been frustrated after purchasing an expensive box of golf balls only to see their performance suffer as a result. The simply reality is that not all golfers are good enough to use such a golf ball. It just doesn’t fit their game. A lower-spin, and possibly less-expensive, golf ball may be the better choice for players who aren’t yet able to manage their ball flight consistently swing after swing.

Trial and Error is Key

Just like when you are shopping for a new driver, testing out golf ball options for yourself is a way to find the right one to add to your bag. A reputable club fitter can help you decide on which type of ball may be best for you. But you never really know how a ball will perform until you actually hit it with your club under real on-course conditions. Instead of investing in a full dozen golf balls just to try them out, see if you can find sleeves of three balls for sale in a variety of brands and models that you or your club fitter think will fit your game. After a period of trying them all out, it will probably become clear quite quickly which one is the best match for your game.

There is a some thinking among amateur golfers that playing as stiff a golf shaft as possible is somehow a sign that you are a good golfer. Some players see it as a badge of honor to be playing with an ‘X’ flex golf shaft, even if the results aren’t as good as they could be with another golf shaft. Instead of worrying about what the flex rating on a given golf shaft happens to be, think about the ball flight it creates and the distance it is capable of. Basically, does it help you hit how you want?

Toward that end, don’t rule out using a regular flex golf shaft if that is what the computer fitting process suggests is best for your swing. The thinking that you have to at least play a stiff flex golf shaft in order to be a good player is faulty – you can play well with any normal flex golf shaft – preferably one that is fit for you.

Your swing speed is one determining factor in how far you can hit the ball, as well as in what golf shaft you might use. If you decide to go to a stiffer shaft even though your swing speed hasn’t increased, all you might do is hurt your game. Don’t buy a club that suits your ego – buy one that suits your swing.

Follow the Lead of the Pros

Unlike amateur golfers, some professional golfers opt for a softer shaft. In some cases, that is still an ‘X’ flex because of the power that those players possess. However, they understand that by using a softer shaft that still suits their swing, they might not have to work as hard to find distance off the tee (or from the fairway) and get the ball up in the air.

Generally speaking, a softer golf shaft can offer you the chance to create more height and possible speed/distance, while a stiffer shaft can offer you more control. That is not a hard and fast rule, but it can be a good place to start when thinking about what golf shaft to use. So, basically, find the softest shaft that you can successfully control in order to maximize both distance and accuracy. It’s a middle ground.

Trust the Technology

A great way to settle on the right golf shaft for your game is simply to trust in the club fitting technology we have available today, as well as the professionals who run them. The numbers can help, and the shafts that are recommended by the machine are probably the ones that will serve you best out on the course. Be sure to try them out before you buy and make sure that they do, in fact, suit your swing – but the computer isn’t wrong very often. Put your ego aside and rely on the impressive technology of things like Trackman to guide you in the right direction.

There is no sense in playing a club that doesn’t work for your swing just to have the ‘pride’ of using a stiff or extra-stiff golf shaft. With that in mind, If you want to play as well as possible and record the lowest score you can, choose clubs that are matched to your ability and swing, regardless of what flex that might be.

Big Bertha is one of the most-recognizable names in the golf equipment world. One of the first metal woods to make a big mark in the game, this Callaway line has been used by countless golfers over the past couple of decades. While the Big Bertha name has somewhat faded into history in recent years, it is back in a big way with the Callaway Big Bertha Alpha driver. Of course, this new version of the Big Bertha doesn’t look much like the previous iterations, and includes the modern features that you would expect from a high-end driver.

Adjustability is a big thing in drivers these days, and the Callaway Big Bertha Alpha offers it in about as many ways as just about any other driver on the market today. Even if you just pick up one of these drivers off the shelf at your local pro shop, you will still be able to  customize it quite a bit to your swing and game. No longer is it good enough to just get the right shaft flex head to the first tee – now you can narrow down so many more variables and fine-tune your ball flight until it is exactly what you are looking for.

The Basics

Not surprisingly, the head of the Callaway Big Bertha Alpha driver is a 460cc head that is offered in both right and left handed models. There are regular, stiff, and x-stiff shafts offered, and a 45.5’’ length is standard for this club. You can find everything you may expect from a Callaway driver, such as a hot face that seems to launch the ball down the fairway, and a great looking design that inspires confidence as you stand over the ball.

Start Adjusting

When you start looking at all of the adjustable features on the Alpha is when you can start to really see what it is capable of. There are three different elements of the club which can all be quickly adjusted –

  • Gravity core. This might be the most exciting and unique feature of the driver. You are able to change the vertical center of gravity through this feature, meaning you can dial in your ball flight for the optimum combination of launch angle and spin rate. This isn’t a feature you will want to mess with on an ongoing basis – you should be able to get it dialed in after you purchase the club, and will probably want to leave it in place for most of your rounds after that.
  • Adjustable weights. Like so many other clubs on the market, the Callaway Big Bertha Alpha offers adjustable weights which can be moved to promote either a draw or fade bias. By spending some time on the driving range experimenting with the different settings, you can discover what ball flights are possible for you off the tee and choose the setting that is just right for your game.
  • Adjustable hosel. Additionally, you will have the option of rotating the shaft of the club thanks to the adjustable hosel technology to both add or subtract loft, and change the bias toward a draw or a fade.

If you are a fan of the Callaway line of drivers over the years, you should take the chance to try out this latest model. Even if you have never owned a Callaway club, the Callaway Big Bertha Alpha offers enough modern technology and customization options that it is worth your consideration.

In an age of more and more modernization of club design among drivers, Ping has remained a little bit more traditional in terms of the looks of their clubs. That is not to say that they haven’t adapted to many of the new technologies that golfers expect to find, however, there is plenty of tech packed into the Ping i25 driver, and longtime Ping users will probably find the feel of the club refreshingly familiar. If you are one that has enjoyed success in the past with the Ping line of drivers, you will want to take a close look at the Ping i25 driver review.

Ping may be well-known for their putters, but there is nothing wrong with the clubs –both irons and drivers – that this company produces. In terms of the Ping i25 driver, there are many of the current technological elements in place so that you can fine tune your ball flight and get the exact performance you are looking for. When looking down at the club from the address position, many golfers will appreciate the simple design and subtle look that stands in contrast to some of the ‘louder’ drivers on the market.

Sole Weights for a Flatter Flight

Generally speaking, a relatively flat ball flight is a good thing for distance on your drives. When the ball is able to launch on a relatively high angle, but then not spin too much further up into the air, an optimal path is achieved and distance can be maximized. Drivers that apply too much spin to the golf ball will usually not net as much yardage because the ball will not carry as far and have minimal roll out when it hits the fairway.

To make sure they can offer a good ball flight from the Ping i25 driver, Ping has placed tungsten sole weights in the club head to keep the center of gravity lower and help the golfer create the desired flight. Those weights also help increase the moment of inertia, meaning you might find the club easier to hit straight as well. And as you probably already know, straight and long is a dangerous combination off the tee.

Adjust the Loft

Ping has also made their way into the adjustable club design field, offering Trajectory Tuning technology in the i25 to allow you to adjust the loft of your driver. The club is offered in 8.5*, 9.5*, and 10.5* models, and each is then adjustable plus or minus another half of a degree thanks to Trajectory Tuning. While that might seem like a subtle adjustment, it can make quite a difference when it comes to the final ball flight that you achieve. Whether you decide to make a change  before you head out for your round, or just want to find on loft and keep it there round after round, the Ping i25 driver offers many golfers the ability to get your loft just right.

In some ways, the Ping i25 driver is similar to past driver offerings that they have put onto the market, but it also adds some impressive new technologies as well. Taking the time to hit one of these drivers for yourself will let you feel what it can do for yourself and help you decide if it would be the right club to add to your bag.

There are many considerations to make when you are shopping for the right golf ball for your game. Each golf ball on the market has different strengths and weaknesses, and picking the wrong one can make the game even harder than it is already. If you are able to select the right ball for your swing, and the one that matches with your goals on the course, you will be amazed at what it can do for you.

In this article, we will look at distance golf balls that are intended to give you more yards for your shots. Not all golf balls will fly the same distance on a given swing, so if you want to get the absolute most distance out of your swing, you will want to find the ball that is going to get up in the air and stay there for as long as possible.

What makes distance golf balls?

In general terms, there are two kinds of golf balls – those that are geared for distance, and those that are geared for spin and control. Of course, it isn’t quite that simple, but most golf balls fit into one of those two general categories. So which should you choose?

Consider the following –

  • If you are a good player with a single digit handicap, you might look for a premium spin ball. You likely have enough power already, and could possible benefit most from the control and touch that can be gained through a professional-style golf ball.
  • If you are a beginner, or struggle to break 100 on a regular basis, distance golf balls may be better suited for you to help you get more distance off the tee.

More and more companies are also making golf balls that fall somewhere in the middle of these two extremes, so you can look for balls that offer a little bit of the distance and control elements for a nice blend. When in doubt, check with a reputable club fitter, or try to purchase just a sleeve of a specific kind of ball so you can try it out on the course before committing to the purchase of a whole dozen. Only after using a ball for a bit will you be able to tell for certain if it is going to be a good fit for your game.

Which brands and models to look for?

There are a wide-range of distance golf balls on the market today for your consideration. The good news is that distance golf balls generally are less-expensive than tour-style spin balls, so you can save some money and get the ball that is right for your game at the same time. The list below is certainly not all of the golf balls available, but it provides a place from which to start your search –

  • NIKE Crush Extreme
  • Titleist DT Solo
  • Callaway HEX Warbird
  • Wilson Staff Duo
  • Pinnacle Gold
  • TaylorMade Noodle Long

Titleist owns the greatest market share for balls, but these days just about any major manufacturer will have quality ball products. Have a look on the boxes of your favorite ball manufacturer for guidance on selecting a ball model or check out the manufacturer’s website. Sometimes they have ball-selecting tools available for you.

If you still aren’t sure which golf ball is going to be a good choice for you, stop by a local golf shop and ask the pro for some advice. After telling them just a little bit about your game, they will likely be able to steer you in the right direction. Once you have the right distance ball in your bag, you might be surprised at how quickly you can see the ball start to sail a little further down the fairway.

Nike is no longer a new player in the golf equipment world. They started getting seriously into the golf business as their relationship with Tiger Woods developed in the late 90’s, but Nike is now an established player in golf and has produced many quality golf clubs that have improved the games of golfers all over the world. Their latest offering, the Nike VRS Covert 2.0 driver, has a modern look and plenty of technology to help you move the ball long and straight down the fairway.

Perhaps it isn’t too surprising that a company such as Nike would offer such an advanced and unique looking club. Nike doesn’t have the history in the game of golf like a company such as Ping or Titleist, so they aren’t trying to balance tradition with modern technology. While not all golfers will love the colors and design of the Nike VRS Covert 2.0 driver, it is sure to have more than its fair share of fans.

A Cavity Back Driver

Going back through the history of golf equipment, there has long been a debate over cavity back or blade irons. The thinking was that cavity backs tended to be more forgiving, while blades offered better control for players good enough to take advantage of what they could do. While that debate is nothing new, it normally was restricted to only irons.

The Nike VRS Covert 2.0 driver brings the cavity back element into the world of drivers. Just the visual look of the cavity back in a driver will take some getting used to for some, but the thinking behind the design makes a lot of sense. If a cavity back design is more forgiving on miss-hits for iron shots, why wouldn’t the same apply for drivers? Nike believes that this design will offer both more distance and better stability through the hitting zone, and you might want to try one of these drivers for yourself to decide how it works for you.

Adjustable Loft

Instead of deciding which loft driver to purchase when you decide to add the Nike VRS Covert 2.0 driver to your bag, you just get the driver in one standard, adjustable loft. Once you start using the club, you can adjust the loft that you are using from between 8.5* to 12.5*. Beyond that customization, you are also able to place the face angle into three different positions.

When you combine the loft and face angle adjustments that you can make with this driver, there is an impressive level of customization possible. It might take a little bit of time on the driving range to work through the various options and find just the right set up that will give you the ball flight you desire.

Will you get more distance with the Nike VRS Covert 2.0 driver than your current club? That is something that you will have to find out. The Covert 2.0 certainly has the ability to launch great drives hole after hole, but you need to make sure it is a good fit for your swing and your eye. Test one out for yourself and see how you like the feel of the club and the ball flight it is able to produce.

If you still look at Nike as a new golf club company that isn’t up to the level of the others, it might be time to change that perception. Nike has created a wide-range of top quality golf clubs, and the VRS Covert 2.0 is another model to join that growing tradition.

Each different club manufacturer has carved out their out niche and style within the market, and Titleist is certainly known for the quality, classic design, and tradition of their clubs. Most Titleist clubs are instantly recognizable, as they usually shy away from the loud colors and unusual shapes that other companies have gone for in recent years. Titleist players tend to be very loyal to their brand as they appreciate the look and feel that these fine clubs have to offer.

One of the latest drivers to be offered up is the Titleist 913 D3, and it certainly doesn’t deviate far from the traditional looks that they have presented in previous versions. While it is true that there are some new technological features in this club that you wouldn’t have found in a Titleist driver a decade ago, the look of the club remains true to its roots. Golfers who have always had a place in their bags for Titleist sticks won’t be disappointed in the appearance of this version.

A Familiar Shape

The shape of Titleist driver heads is something that many golfers could recognize from afar, and they should be able to do just the same with this one as well. As you look down from address, there is no question that you are holding a Titleist driver, and that feeling alone can help to inspire confidence in some players.

The Titleist 913 D3 is available for both right and left handed golfers, and is offered in four different lofts – 7.5*, 8.5*, 9.5*, and 10.5*. The standard graphite shaft is available in regular, stiff, and x-stiff based on your needs and preferences. Just by picking out the right loft and shaft flex for your swing, you will already be well on your way to impressive drives in your very first round with the 913 D3. By using the customization features that the club offers, you will be able to fine tune your results even more.

The SureFit Tour Hosel

There are a number of drivers on the market today that offer adjustability through the hosel of the club, and the Titleist 913 D3 is no different. There are two different adjustments that can be made to the club –

  • Ball flight. You can move the settings to higher or lower ball flights depending on what you are looking for. There are four different settings to choose from, so you can experiment with them all on the range to see what results you get, and which one is best suited to your swing.
  • Shape. Do you want more draw? More fade? There is also customization available for those settings as well. Four more settings are possible moving from draw to fade, so you can try to establish just the right shape that you have been looking for, or even set it before the round specifically for the course you are going to play.

With four ball flight settings and four shape settings, sixteen total combinations are possible. It might take a few rounds to dial it in just how you like it, but having this flexibility in your driver is a nice advantage.

It is a pretty safe bet that long-time Titleist users will jump right on board with the Titleist 913 D3 because it is not a far departure from other models in their past. However, it is worth trying out even if you are happy with your current Titleist model because it has taken some steps forward in technology and might be able to offer you ball flights not currently found with the driver that is in your bag.

Golf tees? On the surface, it would seem that there isn’t anything to think about when it comes to your golf tees of choice. Just pick one out of your bag – or off the ground – place the ball on top, and off you go. Pretty simple, right? Not so fast. Technology has even reached the world of golf tees, where some companies are developing products intended to add distance to your drives simply by placing the ball on top of their tee.

For most of the companies making golf tees, the idea comes down to friction. By removing some of the material from the portion of the tee where the club will be contacting it, they hope to help you maintain a little more speed through the hitting area and add a few yards to the drive. Whether or not it works is up for you to decide, but you can browse the market to find more than a few options.

Pros and Cons of Specialty Tees

If you are considering using a custom golf tee to try and add a few yards to your drive, you should think for a minute about the pros and cons of doing so. While this isn’t going to be the biggest decision you make in your golfing life, every little detail counts when it comes to a game like golf. If there is an edge to be had, you would be wise to grab hold of it.

  • Pro – Possibility of gaining a few yards in distance over traditional tees
  • Con – Cost is more than a plain wood tee
  • Pro – Durability can be much better with some models, allowing you to use just one tee for an entire round or longer
  • Con – More to keep track of. You won’t care if you lose a regular wood tee, but you will be careful to track down your specialty tee after each shot
  • Pro – Tee height. Many of the specialty tee models come with some kind of markings on them so you can more-easily tee the ball up at the same height on each swing
  • Con – Some of these specialty tees are known to make markings on the face of your club more than would occur with a regular wood tee

As you can see, there are some good arguments on both sides of this issue. In reality, there is no right or wrong answer as to whether or not you should use one of these tees. It is up to your own personal choice and preference, and you can always purchase a couple to try out before deciding if you want to these golf tees or not.

What tees to look for?

Just as with all other golf equipment, there is not a shortage of options when it comes to tees designed to give you a little more distance. The list below has a few of the more-popular options on the market today –

  • Zero Friction ZFVictory Golf Tees
  • 4 Yards More Golf Tees
  • Brush T Flexible Golf Tees
  • Evolve Golf Epoch S3 Performance Golf Tees
  • Champ Zarma Fly Golf Tees

Those five are just some of the many options you can find either online or in your local golf shop. Since picking out one or two of these tees will only cost you a few bucks, it might be worth your time to try them out and see what you think. Anything that could offer you a few more yards down the fairway is something that is worth giving a try.
