I'm thinking of getting a new driver but i can't decide. So what is the best driver out there.

Your gonna ask that question? Seriously? Go hit some clubs.

What is good for me could be horrible for you and vice versa.

I am going to bring my driver to the golf store and pick several driver I might consider and hit them all on the machine, launch monitor and see what gives me the best results that I am looking for then hit the final 2 drivers on the driving range and decide.

That's an objective/subjective question that no one can honestly answer without it being contested. No one here swings the big stick, exactly the way you do. With your player profile in mind, do some research. Get a list of clubs and shafts in mind that you believe are best suited to you. Go get try these out (though don't necessarily limit yourself to the list you made). Have an experienced fitter fit you, and choose the one that is best for you, which likely won't be the one I consider the best or best for me. Perhaps once you have a list you can ask for specific opinions on certain club heads or shafts or for anecdotal experiences, but until then your question in it's current state serves no use. I'm going to refrain from giving specific suggestions because it reinforces the notion that there is a hierarchy of clubs simply based on the name stamped on the sole. Good luck.

What's best: chocolate....vanilla.....peach.....apple....????? There are tons of options out there.

Go to a reputable full service golf store and find out what the top sellers are and you go from there. I'm very partial to my driver....however I'm sure there's another out there that is just as hot.....

I have a niche for the r7 425.. I have been calling it "the greatest driver ever made" still to this day. Reason being is that it is soo versitale in terms of maneuverability. Especially in maybe the best Cubic Centimeter driver ever at 425 cc's...It won a ton on tour and is still in a lot of players bags. To me it was the best ever made.

Recommend you go to rankmark.com and look at the test of drivers by handicap. There is an archive going back about 5 years. Realistically, most any driver in the last 5 years 425cc's and up will serve you well. I recommend you get a square faced driver and lessons. Once you learn to hit a driver square, the rest of them are all variations on the same theme. I chased the magic driver for years. Finally, a retired Golfsmith master clubmaker asked the magic question; do you ever want to be a good golfer? If the answer is yes, invest in lessons and grooving your swing. Avoid, draw, super draw, etc. Someone recommended an R7 425; would be a good option to start with and once you groove your swing put the weights to neutral. Good Luck.

Don't overlook the Mizuno MP-600. I personally hit it further and straighter than the Taylormade Tour TP that I had my heart set on when I went to the store. It was $200 cheaper as well. Just go and hit several and you may find one that surprises you.

Chocolate.

You've got to test clubs out. Any good golf course should have demo drivers for you to hit on their range. Forget the golf store launch monitor. Go to the range and get real/personal feedback.

    • Because everyone gets bored of blue skies now and again! Crazy winds and serious mood-lighting! First hole has the signature lighthouse behind the green and a great linksy fairway, second is a 114 yard par three that played about 140 yesterday.  
    • A good afternoon of birthday practice yesterday. Did a lot of short game work and went out to the course way after the last tee time to put them in practice in 'real' situations. Finally I did a nice putting drill to gauge areas to focus on - this will be a bit of a regular thing that I go back to now and again to judge progress. A few photos from on-course work: Downwind - 15mph and dispersion from shots at 125 yards, 115, 100 and 75. Nearly pulled the wedge from 75 into a bunker, which would have been horrendous, so that's a bit worse than it looks. Delighted with the rest and all on the middle tier of a three tier green. After about 10 minutes of practising, from 50 yards using a variety of clubs (furthest to nearest) - putter, wedge, hybrid chip. Had to come up a big tier, so pretty pleased with this. Hybrid chip was the right play in that it took the tier out of play, but my default would have always been wedge. Just nice to add another shot to my game - although it will need more practice. Putting: Just need to make more inside 10 feet. Great not to have any 3 putts though! Hole Ft Break Score 1 Score 2 Score 3 Score 4 Score 5 1.         3ft Straight 1         2.         6ft R/L uphill 1         3.         9ft L/R downhill 2         4.         12ft R/L downhill 2         5.         15ft L/R 2         6.         4ft slight break downhill 1         7.         8ft R/L 2         8.         12ft L/R 2         9.         16ft L/R downhill 2         10.     20ft L/R uphill 2         11.     5ft slight break 2         12.     10ft L/R 2         13.     15ft R/L 2         14.     20ft Straightish 1         15.     25ft Double Break 2         16.     6ft R/L downhill 2         17.     33ft Slight uphill 2         18.     45ft Slight downhill 2         Total 32         Strokes Gained -2.81        
    • 26/2/17 - more slow takeaway work. Heading to the range later and will spend time really working on transitioning this work to full swing. I think the feel needs to be that my left arm is glued to my stomach, but will check with video later.
    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination.
