Best Golf Driver For Seniors?
It should be renamed best golf drivers for slow swing speeds, because age isn't the determining factor. But regardless, is there a "best" golf driver for "seniors"?
The slower your swing speed the more difficult it becomes to hit it long, that's a pretty simple concept. But there are a few things you can do to try and optimize and max out your distance potential if you are a slower swing speed player.
The first factor to look at for your golf driver is weight.
Where can you save weight to increase club head speed but still have enough energy going into the ball at impact. The shaft is the best place to save on weight to increase club head speed, that will lead to more ball speed. We tested lighter club heads, at around 190 grams and lighter grips at 25 grams and the results were not more distance. The only factor that helped increase swing speed and overall distance was a lighter shaft with tour weighted head.
For this reason our standard senior shaft is only 54 grams. And recently we starting offering the Matrix Radix which is slightly lighter at 50 grams. This senior flex shaft has increased stability due to a 16 sided internal structure that allows for tighter dispersion but less overall weight.
Back to the question. Is there a best golf driver for Seniors?
I have had thousands of conversations with Senior golfers and it is clear that they all want more distance! Other than a lighter golf shaft, what can be done to help slow swing speed players increase their distance? Building a longer golf driver is certainly a common option. Our average driver length is 45.5 inches, which is certainly not short. But it is very common to build a golf driver that is 46 inches and in some cases up to 47 inches in length. The extra length will help with club head speed and distance potential. Please note: longer drivers aren't not typically easier to hit and will require practice!
