The Best Value Golf Drivers

By Steve Silverman

Once a golfer has started to commit to the game, he soon gets to the point where he's considering buying new clubs. The first club is often the driver. That club can be expensive, but you don't have to pay a lot of money to find a driver that is effective. There are some great value buys out there, especially for beginners.

Callaway FT-5 Driver

The Callaway FT-5 driver has a huge face that allows the golfer to hit good shots even if he does not hit the ball perfectly. Much of the weight is at the bottom of the club, which allows the beginning golfer to get the ball up in the air consistently.
(2009 average price: $199.95)

Wilson Staff Spine Driver

The Wilson Staff Spine is one of the hottest drivers on the market because it has a large face and is very forgiving, allowing inexpertly hit shots to still look great. The non-traditional head allows the golfer to get maximum distance while maintaining control of the shot.
(2009 average price: $159.95)

Orlimar Fury

This is an outstanding club for a golfer who has better-than-average power to begin with and wants to hit the ball even further. The Orlimar Fury has superior strength and flexibility and also gets the ball in the air better than most drivers.
(2009 average price: $250)
