The Best Golf Driver for Beginners

By Steve Silverman

The driver is usually one of the first clubs you will purchase as you attempt to fill in your first set of golf clubs. There are many different drivers to buy and many can be quite expensive. If you are going to buy a brand new club, you can expect to pay at least $150. You should also look for one with a big head that can be forgiving of a less-than-perfect shot.

Callaway I-Mix FT-i driver

This club is easy to handle for the beginner and is very forgiving. Most of the weight is in the corners of the face of the driver, so you don't need a perfect swing to get a good shot. It has a titanium face which will ensure hard contact with the ball.

Lynx Premium LX3 driver

The Lynx Premium LX3 has a triangular weighting pattern to reduce twisting and make sure the club head is straight at the moment of impact. The club is good for beginners but will also stay your for years as you improve and your game grows.

Ping G2 driver

The Ping G2 driver has a 10 degree loft which will help the beginner get the ball in the air. The higher launch angle allows you to get greater carry with your tee shot. The manufacturer says this is the most forgiving driver it has ever made.
