Nailing your opening tee shot with a driver is a great way to set the tone for an enjoyable round of golf. On the other hand, hitting a worm burner off the tee can leave you feeling overwhelmed and your confidence takes a hit each time you fail to deliver after swinging the wrong club. 

Maybe you were feeling anxious after an errant shot at the driving range and didn't have complete confidence in your big stick. If so, it might be time to find a driver that’s better suited for your swing. Truth is the results you get with your driver is determined by how well the club matches your swing, so don’t expect negative shots to go away.

When choosing the clubs to take with you on course, there's no room for second guesses. Doing your due diligence and researching fitting options, such as the latest launch angle and spin rate technology, is the first step in building a driver that’s a perfect match to help eliminate any pre-shot jitters and improve your results.

Stop Leaving Yardage in Your Bag

An errant drive off the first tee can leave you feeling anxious and the negative thoughts that are racing through your head can lead to bad club decisions that can cost you valuable yards off the box for the rest of your round. Unfortunately, the average amateur golfer loses 30-50 yards when using a hybrid or long iron off of tee box. That's why investing in a driver that is matched to your specific swing will pay dividends with both accuracy and distance as well as provide you with peace of mind.

“Here is the biggest secret and the most misunderstood issue in the game of golf today. Virtually every driver is manufactured with a face thickness that’s rated for a 115 to 120 mph minimum swing speed, which severely limits the spring effect and distance for the average golfer.”
