You can almost feel the excitement in the air every time you walk into your favorite pro shop or sporting goods shop – just like kids waiting for Christmas, the golf experts are rapidly chatting about the newest clubs coming this fall. Reading golf reviews and seeing the sneak-peek photos that are starting to circulate are starting to take their toll – maybe it’s time to trade in your Titleist 913 driver on something bright and shiny this year.
There are a lot of drivers to be excited about, but here are a few of the clubs we know are coming soon to a golf shop near you:
Callaway Big Bertha V Series
Even though Callaway re-launched their basic Big Berthas this spring, they’ve done more tweaking and have come up with the V Series just in time for the fall club parade. This Big Bertha is the everyman’s club, designed to create a lot of launch speed without a super swift swing. This lighter, more aerodynamic club also features an adjustable hosel for minor loft corrections.
It’s not official yet, but all signs point to the JPX-850 being released this fall. Although not known for their drivers, Mizuno aims to change that this season. When this club’s prototype debuted at the TPC Sawgrass Players Championship, the bold and adjustable beauty turned some heads. With both moveable and sliding weights and an adjustable hosel, you should be able to shape any shot you can imagine.
If you haven’t seen it yet, the G30 driver has one very distinct feature that may make it the club to have for 2015. The “speed humps,” otherwise known as turbulators, on the crown of the driver’s head promise to increase the speed of this big-headed club by reducing air resistance. Of course, that’s not all Ping did to their new driver — several tweaks to the inner workings and a more adjustable loft are nice touches, too.
Normally, we’d be quick to point out how Titleist drivers are designed with better players in mind, but they’ve really shaken things up this year with the 915 drivers. In fact, they may be our favorites so far — the D2 is rumored to be so forgiving that it’s solidly in the game-improvement category, while the D3 has plenty to offer the more serious golfer. Rumors are swirling about pro-level clubs marketed as D4 and D5, but so far rumors are all we have.
You’re not the only one waiting for the new clubs to land — we can’t wait to get our hands on these hot new clubs, either! Keep your eyes on our website for the newest and best in drivers from all your favorite manufacturers at prices you’ll love.
