Explore the new adjustability to find the better player living in your driver
New drivers and irons.
Dave Tutelman, a retired Bell Labs engineer, is a sports-technology savant.Among his many passions is figuring out how golf-club technology works, including developing a ball-flight simulation programme.We asked him to estimate how many metres average golfers are missing out on with the driver. He said 25, and that’s just carry. Improving the efficiency of impact (a better fitting driver is critical) might get you as many as 15 metres.The right loft could yield another six.A lower centre of gravity might produce a few more, and so on. Sure, some of those improvements can be fueled by lessons, but others come from getting the driver properly fit to maximise your strengths (and mask your weaknesses).That’s where adjustable clubs can make a difference. Instead of being afraid of all those settings, explore them. Here are three clubs to start your search:
