SHORT REVIEW: Callaway XR/XR Pro Drivers(2015)(Gold Rated): Another aerodynamic design from Callaway for 2015. The staggered step on the head reduces drag. Combined with a more flexible face and overall 20 grams lighter than other Callaway models this club is all about getting more clubhead speed. The 46" shaft creates a longer arc that may increase distance for some golfers. It's also less expensive at about $100 less than other new models. Available lofts: (9, 10.5, 12, 13.5 HT for XR; 9, 10.5 for XR Pro) END REVIEW Callaway XR Driver Speed From Speed Step Crown To reduce drag and maximize speed through the swing, Callaway has put in a Speed Step Crown and combined it with an optimized aerodynamic head shape. Everything about this driver is optimized for aero efficiency, which is critical to add speed with less drag. Higher Ball Speed From R•MOTO Face Technology This is the power of R•MOTO Technology – it removes weight in the face to increase ball speed and create more efficient energy transfer across the face. That's why you get more ball speed at every impact location, even on mishits, and it's one of the key technologies that allows us to move the Center of Gravity very low to maximize distance. Optifit Adjustability Choose from 8 different loft and lie configurations to find the perfect launch for your ball flight. When you get the right launch conditions, you get more distance.

CLUB REVIEW:(2015)(Gold Series) These new clubs from Ping features a highly stable head with an over-size face. The design is for forgiveness on off center hits, giving similar distance on many miss-hits to those hit square in the middle! The "LS Tec" model is designed for better players with lower spin technology. For the slicers amongst us the heel weighted SF tec may be the club for you. These clubs offer maximum forgiveness which is something that 90% of golfers will benefit from. Available lofts: (9, 10.5 for G30 and LS; 10, 12 for SF Tec) END REVIEW Ping G30 Driver An emphasis on speed with no sacrifice in performance sets the new Ping G30 Drivers apart. To generate faster clubhead speed and ball velocity for longer drives, turbulators were engineered onto the crown of the 460cc heads. Proven in wind-tunnel testing to reduce aerodynamic drag and create efficient airflow, the added speed from Turbulator Technology provides measurable distance gains for all skill levels. At address, they create a captured appearance with the ball and assist with alignment and inspiration. The G30 drivers' CG position is the lowest and farthest back of any PING model, ensuring optimal launch conditions and an even higher MOI in both axes for extreme forgiveness and maximum energy transfer. A new high-strength, lightweight T9S titanium face is thinner and hotter to optimize face deflection for faster ball speeds and longer drives. Another source of power is the TFC 419D high-balance-point shaft. The CG is closer to the grip end, allowing for a heavier head, which increases the MOI and contributes to the extremely low CG. The result is more energy, momentum and inertia for greater distance with accuracy. The adjustable hosel has the same mass and outer diameter as PING's fixed hosels, providing the benefits of adjustability with no sacrifice in performance. Trajectory Tuning+ Technology offers five settings, allowing you to optimize your ball flight by increasing or reducing loft by 6/10ths of a degree or one full degree, to maximize distance and control. Settings are standard, +0.6?, +1?, -0.6?, and -1?. The G30 SF Tec driver is for golfers whose swing path produces tee shots right of their intended target. Weight is positioned near the heel to help square the face at impact. Combined with a lighter swingweight, these factors improved shot bend in player testing by 12 yards compared to the G30 standard driver, steering the ball into the fairway with unmatched consistency. Features: Crown Turbulators: Improve aerodynamics by reducing drag forces, which helps increase club head speed for more distance. New T9S Face Material: Higher strength/weight ratio allows for thinner, hotter face. Saves 4 grams from faee, which are reallocated to help better position the CG (lower and farther back than G25) and increase MOI for more forgiveness. SF (Straight Flight) Tec Model: Heel weighting and lighter swing weight promote straighter ball flight. Adjustable Hosel (+ - 1°): Ability to add/reduce up to 1 degree of loft to fine-tune trajectory. Additional adjustability achieved without added weight to the hosel region. CG Positioned Low/Back: Increases MOI and reduces spin for longer, straighter drives. Sole Louvers: Thin walls stabilize sound, save weight for reallocation to other areas for increased perimeter weighting and CG position optimization. Sole CTP: Greater range of weights accommodates wide range of after-market shafts for optimizing swingweight. TFC 419D Shaft: High Balance Point allows for heavier head (approx. 5 grams), which increases MOI for more distance and accuracy.
CLUB REVIEW:(2015)(Gold Rated):These new clubs by Taylormade are said to be the most forgiving T.M. clubs to date. Taylormade started the adjustable club revolution and this is the result. A Driver designed to decrease spin with a low-forward center of gravity. Less spin means less slice or hook and straighter tee shots. One of the most forgiving clubs on the market, if not the most. Better start tweaking this club this winter if you want it ready for your first spring tee time though! This club has 1,836 possible configurations! (9.5, 10.5, 12, 14 degree lofts) END REVIEW TaylorMade R15 Driver The new TaylorMade R15 Driver features a lower and more forward Center of Gravity (CG) which promotes higher launch and less spin. The new Front Track system on the R15 Driver works like a Speed Pocket, enlarging the sweet spot and aids in reducing spin. Featuring: Dual sliding weights (12.5g each), allow for more precise weighting for fades and draws, or split them for increased stability. Increased loft range of 4° provides you with the ability to precisely dial in your launch. Gorgeously sculpted pear shape with a larger footprint and a satin white finish (also available in black) Comes with new Fujikura Speeder 57 Evolution shaft and Lamkin UTx grip. The TaylorMade R15 TP Driver is available in the Speeder 661 Evolution Tour Spec and also utilizes the Lamkin UTx grip.

SHORT REVIEW:2015)(Gold Rated): Wilson has a winner here in one of the very lightest Driver's on the market today.(268 grams)The club is designed to make it easier to generate speed with the same swing you had before you bought this weapon! Each loft can be adjusted 6 ways including 3 draw settings to help the slicer. Less expensive than most this club may be the one to get you within reach of those par 5's in two without breaking the bank. (Lofts: 9, 10.5, 13) END REVIEW Wilson Staff Mens D200 Drivers Lightweight With Adjustable Technology The D200 Drivers from Wilson are some of the lightest golf drivers on the market with adjustable technology. Six hosel settings allow you to fine tune ball flight and maximize distance with little effort.
