The driver is considered the second most important club of the bag after the putter. This is due to the fact that it can normally be used 14 times per lap on a typical par 72 golf course, and more importantly, because the tee shot puts up each hole. A precise workout can give the impression that the rest of the hole is easy, while an offline workout and in a rough airlock, behind a tree or in a water hazard can cause dizziness. huge problems and make the peer almost impossible.
Evolution of the golf driver
Golfers have changed dramatically in the last 10-15 years. If you’ve been away from golf for a while and suddenly decide to play again, you’ll be shocked by trying one of the modern pilots. First of all, the price will be a slap. It’s not the least bit unusual for today’s biggest brands to cost a driver $ 500 or more. The next thing that will catch your eye is the huge size of the club’s head. Today’s most used driver models are generally numbered 460 because the club head is 460 cubic centimeters. It is now the maximum size allowed for the head of a driver. Sleeve technology has changed a lot and today’s combination of today’s flexible graphite sleeves, as well as today’s modern club head technology and golf balls, is what produces the prodigious drives that we usually see each week. on the PGA Tour. The ladies have also benefited a lot. The top golfer, Lorena Ochoa, from Mexico, weighs only about 115 pounds, but her workouts often fly 250 meters or more. When this author was a boy, the longest striker of that time was a player named George Bayer. Bayer was a tall man, probably more than 4 inches tall, and he had a powerful shot. He was hitting the ball about 275 yards from the tee at that time, which of course was considered very long. The male PGA players ranged between 250 and 260 yards at the time, and the drivers and other woods were actually made of wood, usually hardwood, like persimmon, it is not uncommon today. 39 to watch a PGA tournament on television. by the longest strikers in the 320-340 yard range using titanium club heads. Distances like these would have been unthinkable for the day in Bayer.
Evolution of the driver’s club head
A club head of 460 cm3 is rather huge. Why have the club leaders of the pilots evolved to this state and what advantages do they offer to the golfer? First of all, the reason why the pilot heads can be so big is because they are made of lightweight titanium. Titanium is powerful and flexible, and the best ranges of clubs offer a spring or trampoline effect. In other words, when the club hits the ball, the face of the workout leans inward, like what happens when a person jumps on a trampoline. When the club’s face recedes, it pushes the ball faster than it would otherwise, allowing for greater distance. Golf rules now limit the amount of spring that can be provided by the driver’s clubhead. If this was not the case, each year new models made from different materials would come out and readers would lengthen more and more. Before long, all golf courses would be out of date. This has already been the case for many courses and it has often been necessary to lengthen the golf holes to keep up with the longer distances provided by the drivers and golf balls of today. Another major advantage of the big heads of today’s driver clubs is a bigger MOI, synonymous with moment of inertia. To summarize, a larger MOI means that the clubhead will not turn so much on off-center shots. The result is better, even on swings that miss a good point. If you miss one of the current 460 titanium drivers, you will lose a bit of distance, but the same number of missed attempts with an old khaki driver would give you a much worse shot.
Of course, most golfers love the extra distance offered by the new high-tech drivers. There is, however, a disadvantage to all this. In other words, the longer the training, the harder it is to keep the ball in the fairway.
