Drivers are the hardest and the longest clubs from your club set. They are the ones that are used while teeing-off the ball. Teeing-off the ball is the first shot any golfer plays. A golfer needs that ball to cover great distance. Learning to play with the latest drivers is an essential part of your Golf training.
Drivers were initially made from wood. They had small club-head face. When struck properly, they gave a great feel to the golfer. Our grand-parents played golf with wooden clubs. The problem with a wooden club was that it was not forgiving and a slightly off-head shot could result in losing 50 yards.
Today, companies are producing clubs that posses both wooden and iron characteristics and are called hybrid clubs. But the driver made from titanium is the most popular driver nowadays. Titanium is light weight and strong material, and that is why it is possible to increase the size of the face of the club-head. The increment in the size makes the club more forgiving and even the off-center shots give you greater distance.
