Thanks for letting me join the community! I am a high handicap golfer who really enjoys the game. Now that my baseball days are over, I have to find something else to stay active. I am really having trouble getting off the Tee and I am at the point where I need to hit a driver to improve my score. After spending countless hours researching, I have narrowed my search down to a few clubs and I would like yalls opinion.
Nike VRS 2012 Driver: I recently bought the 3 wood since I got it brand new for 110 bucks! I have only hit it a few times and when I do hit it, I really like the club. My previous 3 wood was a Callaway X which went with my old X18 irons. I like the Nike 3 wood much better than that but my research showed that the Driver ranked highest for the mid handicap golfer. I can get this for about 150 bucks or maybe less.
Taylormade RBZ (not tour): Havent hit this club but loved my Dad's old TM woods. It ranked highest in some places for high handicap players and then some it didnt. Overall, it was one of the highest ranked drivers.An employee at DIcks said this would be the driver he would recommend. I can get this club for about 190 bucks.
Callaway Razr X Black (not fit): It ranked highest for maximum high handicapper and has amazing reviews everywhere. Dicks employee said he would not recommend this for high handicap golfer. I can purchase this for about 115 bucks!
Another one that I saw was the PING G20 or something like that...I havent researched it to much.
When your give your opinion, take money into consideration but not how expensive it is..if that makes sense. I am looking for a club that I can use for a long time to come and right now, I cannot get off the Tee with my very old Big Bertha! I cant really explain what I am doing wrong because I am so inconsistent. Well, I take that back, there was a period where I was hitting it about 220 yards, very low flight and a bad left to right spin kind of inbetween a draw if that is the right term (fade?) and slice (or hook). I just started playing that and most of the time I would end up in the fairway. I really do appreciate yalls help and look forward to seeing what you have to say!
