The 2015 best golf drivers that'll work for you
Having the right driver makes a big difference in your golf game, but with the advancements in golf technology at an all time high, it is becoming very difficult to choose the right driver.
The technological advancements have allowed most of the top manufacturers in the world to make better drivers, which makes it difficult for you to decide which one best suits your game.
To help make the decision process easier for you, I have tested some of the best drivers and have put together a list of the 2015 best golf drivers.
These clubs aren't ranked in any order, and are listed alphabetically, because the best driver for one golfer isn't necessarily the best driver for another golfer.
Once you have the driver that's right for you it's time to work on generating the most power and distance out of it.
I use and implement the Golf Swing Speed Challenge system that helps me gain extra yardage over my playing partners every weekend.
The system is simple and easy to use and ideal for golfers of all handicap levels.
Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815
Retail Price: $450
The original Big Bertha Alpha came out in 2014, it is a low spin driver that was designed for golfers with a high swing speed.
This version has the same qualities as the original Alpha, but it is tailored for use by everyday golfers.
The Alpha 815 has the same 460 cubic centimeter head that the 2014 Alpha does, but it has a new face design that allows you to move the weight away from the face, allowing it to increase the ball speed on centre hits.
The ability to shift the weight is very useful to a lot of golfers, because it gives you great ball spin and is very accurate.
The Alpha 815 also has removable plugs in the toe and heel that can be used to draw bias or create fades.
The driver has lofts of 9, 10.5 and 12 degrees.
Con: It's difficult to find something to complain about with this driver.
Retail Price: $400
Cobra is quickly becoming one of the top manufacturers in the golfing industry, thanks to the success of their previous releases like the AMP Cell.
Cobra is one of the real up and coming drivers which is why it made the 2015 best golf drivers list.
The Fly-Z+ driver has a forged E9 face that allows you to shift the weight, to give you a better shot and long distance when you hit the ball off centre.
The club provides you with good accuracy, as long as you get decent contact on the ball, the head has a good weight, which lets you know exactly where it is during your swing and allows you to get better contact on the ball.
The driver has an adjustable head that adjusts to give you 8-11 degrees of loft.
Con: Doesn't have the best distance, especially when compared to the other drivers on this list.
Nike Vapor Speed/Pro
Retail Price: $300/$400.
The Nike Speed and Pro both share the same technologies and style, but they were designed to produce different results.
They both have the covert cavity feature that Nike brought back from their Nike Covert 2.0.
They also added the compression channel, which is behind the face of the club, and works with the covert cavity to give you more flexibility and more ball speed.
The difference between the two drivers is that the speed was designed for golfers with mid handicaps and players with moderate ball speed.
The Pro is for the more experienced players who have single digit handicaps.
The FlexLoft 2.0 allows you to swap heads with existing Nike shafts, because it is compatible with other Nike drivers and it also allows you to change through five lofts, from 8.5-12.5.
Both clubs give you a lot of distance, due to the lightweight design, and they are both very comfortable clubs to use.
Con: The clubs are not very forgiving in terms of accuracy.
Ping G30 SF Tec/LS Tec
Retail Price: $350
There is a lot of talk about the aerodynamics of the G30 driver, but the real strength of the G30 is the large face of the club and the stable head.
These two things allow you to hit the ball very aggressively and accurately.
The driver has an internal weighting that helps balls that are hit off centre launch with similar types of speed and distance as shots that were hit dead centre.
The G30 comes with two additional heads, that come in handy for the more experienced golfers.
The LS Tec is great for low spinning balls, while the SF Tec is lighter and heel weighted for slicers.
The G30 and LS Tec allow you to change lofts from 9 to 10.5 degrees, while the SF Tec allows lofts of 10 and 12 degrees.
Con: The sole weight can't be adjusted by the user.
TaylorMade R15/R15 TP
Retail Price: $430/$500
TaylorMade's adjustable drivers have been very popular since they started making them a decade ago.
The R15 continues in that tradition and has dual adjustable weights in the sole that help to decrease the ball spin, expand the sweet spot, or if you put them together, you can create a low centre of gravity.
The driver provides you with great distance, it feels great, the size of the club face allows you to make good contact even when you don't hit the ball well.
It is one of the most accurate drivers you will ever use, which is saying a lot, because TaylorMade have some very accurate drivers.
It has an adjustable head that lets you change the loft from 9.5 to 14 degrees.
Con: The driver hits the ball too straight making it difficult to curve shots.
Retail Price: $450
Titleist is one of the few companies that manages to keep the same look when it comes to their golf clubs, and the 915 D2 and D3 follow in the same tradition.
Both clubs have an active recoil channel in the sole, that allows the hitting area of the club to flex more on impact, it also widens the area where the maximum speed is and reduces the ball spin.
The face and the crown of the club have been thinned in order to reduce the weight and also give you a better shot even if you don't find the centre of the face with your swing.
The club's length also offers greater distance, while keeping its accuracy, which is always welcome.
The R15D2 has lofts of 7.5 to 10.5 degrees, and 12 degrees, while the R15D3 has lofts of 7.5 to 10.5 degrees.
Con: The weight adjustment can't be controlled by the user.
