The Best Golf Drivers of 2021

How long do you want your golf ball to fly? 

As a vision comes to mind of your golf ball flying far off into the distance, which golf club is in your hands?  

Likely, you are thinking of a golf driver. Maybe it's a golf driver that's already a part of your collection, or perhaps it's a golf driver you haven't added yet. 

The perfect driver can help you access that distance you're dreaming of. If you've developed your golf game, and want to take on a next level tool to optimize your game, the perfect driver is the direction you are heading in. 

As the driver is generally the most expensive club you’ll have in your golf bag, it is important to consider carefully what you are looking for so you can have an optimal experience.

Here are some questions to ask when considering which golf driver is best for you:

  1. What size of head are you looking for?
  2. What materials would you like?
  3. How much forgiveness would you like the driver to afford you?
  4. Which center of gravity is the best fit for you?
  5. What weight differentiation do you require?
  6. What considerations do you need when it comes to the loft of the club and lie angle?
  7. What shaft weight would be best suited to you?
  8. What shaft flex would you prefer?
  9. How long would you like to club to be?

This blog post will give you a general picture of what each golf driver will offer you. At Back2Basics we can give you an in-depth analysis in regards to these questions, and help you achieve the vision you have for what your driver can do for you.

Keep that vision in mind as we run through the best drivers in 2021, and think again about what distance you envision for your golf ball.
