Which driver..?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Currently swinging a Taylor Made Burner superfast 2.0. It seems and is a bit longer than other drivers. I am not a great golfer and I think the light weight and longer shaft is causing bad drives. I have a terrible draw to the left (right hand swinger) up to 40+ yards off center to the left every time. Driver speed is around 91-97 mph

I am looking at replacing the driver with something more forgiving that I can take lessons with..

Calaway Xhot 10.5 stiff shaft
Ping G20 10.5 stiff shaft

any comments on either of these? I hit them far better on the monitor today but am looking for advice. I like the adjustability of the calaway but the ping feels good too even thou it has no adjustability.

Sorry to say I don't think it's the driver causing you the problems.  Having said that both are good drivers, maybe these reviews can help.

I agree with mvmac sounds like a swing issue, normally a longer shaft will cause a slice "normally not always" try choking down on it and see if that helps. maybe even check you grip too, its amazing how much hand placement can effect your shot. to strong or to weak can wreak havoc on a player.

Does a strong grip promote more of a slice and a weak grip promotes a hook?

Generally it would have the opposite effect, but it depends on the individual. For me I will actually slice it if my grip is extremely strong because I overcompensate, and the same (except with a hook) if my grip is extremely weak. However I will just shift from my slightly strong grip to a weak one if I want to hit a fade instead of a draw.
