Forgiving drivers?

Recommended Posts

Hi In currently using a titleist 910 d2 driver at the minute but finding it hard to consistently control! Can anyone recommend any drivers which are more forgiving? I'm playing of 13 and hit a fade off the tee. Cheers

Callaway X Hot seems to be pretty forgiving so far. I'm a 20 hcp but I'm starting to come down a few strokes due to a more consistent tee box.

Other than not being able to consistently not being able to control the drives, how do you like the 910? i was looking into piking one up. To answer your question, I've hit a lot of TM drivers and they all are nice and pretty forgiving, I would also look into the Ping G20 and G25, deppending on how much your looking to spend.

Ping G20


Agree with this!  I actually have a ping G20 (43.5 shaft) and loved it.  I don't get the same distance as I do with my R1, but it's a really straight consistent driver bound to find the fairway.  Great forgiveness off the tee.  I'll put it back in the back for courses where accuracy is needed over distance...

Honestly, I have more fun with the R1 but score wise, I should really be using the G20 :-)

I've found thru being able to try lot's of OEM demo's that most all of the MFG's have the driver core at it's limit so it's the look and sound that one seem to go for.

PS: the shaft is the answer.

@mazza78 ,

I have the same 910 D2 driver in 12 loft with an Aldila Habanero stiff shaft that was fitted to me.  It is a light shaft that is mid-high launching.  I also have a G20 in 12 with a Aldila RIP beta regular shaft.  This shaft is a little heavier and higher launching.  At the range, I didn't find the G20 any more or less forgiving.  It is a good driver.  The 910 has a sound I prefer more on contact.

I recommend finding a fitter and see what the right shaft for you would be.  It may be that the shaft you have doesn't match your swing.

I am a fan of the Ping G Series also. Get fit for the shaft also. It has a lot to do with it.

I'm a fan of my Ping G15.   I have an old Cobra SZ that I like also but that was when Cobra was Cobra.  Not sure of the new offerings as I have not tried one yet.

Well worth the investment to get fitted for the right shaft!!!   It will help you get longer and more accurate!

    • Okay, I gave you those (and removed the 80 one). An 11 index broke par, eh?
    • Trust me, it happens and not due to abuse. I broke a brand new macGregor 3 iron on the very first swing at the driving range after pops bought me the clubs. On my downswing, the head flew off as soon as the ball was hit.The ball bounded about ten feet to the right, the head about 10 yards to the left. The driver I posted above was about 15 years old and never abused. It was my all time favorite club so it was well cared for and I am too cheap to bust clubs out of childish fits of rage. The club also hadn't been used in a decade, then maybe 20 strikes this summer, just as the OP said, head dangling off strands of graphite. The guy who is repairing it has had a hell of a time extracting the shaft from the hosel, too.
    • Just want to get the word out on a relatively new golf ball company, that seemingly makes a great product.  Similar to my Cut Golf topic. Sphera Golf is a new company (debuted in March I believe) that currently offers two different types of golf balls.  The Pro Threes, and the Pro Fours.  The Pro Threes are a 3 piece urethane cover ball that appears to be trying to play the role of ProV1 in their line up.  Their ProV1 X is the Pro Fours, it is a 4 piece urethane cover ball.  I've been playing the Pro Fours off and on this week and for me they seem to perform every bit as well as any other 4 piece urethane cover golf ball. Prices for the Pro Fours start off at $24.99 a dozen while the Fours go for $30 a dozen.  I hope to update this thread with further impressions as I have more time with the ball, but early returns is that it is good ball for the price.
    • Dropped off some old golf shorts and shirts at a local Goodwill store today, My waist size is now 32", and the 34's and 36's were falling off of me! I kept some of the nicer 34's just in case! After the drop off I went into the store to see if there were any golf clubs worth looking at. The selection was pretty sparse, but I did find a Taylor Made R580XD and an original Callaway ERC II! The ERC II even has a stamping on the heel of the club that states, "Non-conforming to USGA rules". This was the club that made for the big kerfuffle, and lawsuit, between Callaway and the USGA. I bought them both and will go try them out. Considering modern golf technology, I'm not expecting much. But, if I can't hit them, I'll pass them on. Maybe the next guy can. At 2 bucks a club, how could I go wrong?! Dang! I hit the J instead of the H in the title!
    • Not a bad idea. I have some impact stickers on their way in the mail, when they get here I'll try that out, thanks!
