Handicap is not as higher as better just like golf scores. Usually, lower handicappers would be better golf players; and lower scores always mean better performance. Today, let’s discuss the top rated golf clubs for sale for low handicappers. And in this article, I would focus on drivers and putters.
Low handicappers don’t typically need drivers that can compensate for their trouble swings or with a lot of forgiveness. Instead, they need raw power and that’s what these golf clubs for sale can offer.
Tied for the lead in this year’s PGA Driver Derby, the TaylorMade R15 Driver is a great driver for low handicappers on and off the Tour. With adjustable sole weights and loft settings, you can change your configuration on the fly to better suit the course conditions you find. You’ve got long, straight shots and plenty of feedback to look forward from this club.
The other favorite driver on Tour, the Titleist 915 D2 Driver is considered a game improvement driver, but even the best players in the world love it for its length, simplicity and straight shots. Although it can be a little trickier to work than other Titleist drivers, for example the Titleist 915 D3 Driver, it more than makes up for that in control and distance.
Besides the Titleist 915 D2 Driver for sale, we also need some better putters to help us lower the handicap. Putters are the second most important club in your bag since they can literally make or break your short game. Most low handicappers don’t like the bulkiness of a mallet or exotic putter, but these blades are built for the ultimate in control.
Scotty Cameron Newport Putters espeically the Newport 2 putter would be a good choice for you. Although Scottys are regulars on the PGA Tour, none made as many winning appearances this year as the Newport 2. With clean lines, stability through the stroke and at impact, low handicappers love the Scotty Cameron Newport Putters for sale.
Titleist doesn’t rush drivers to the market, but has a calculated plan to introduce a better driver every 2 years, they spend that time making improvements over the previous model.
Titlelist has the best drivers for the average player. I am a 12 handicap and use to play TaylorMade until the R9. I think TaylorMade has tried to over do it for marketing sales since 2009. I switched over to the Titlelist 913 D2 and have been happy since then. I am not trying to plug Titlelist. However, they know how to keep it simple for the average golfer (which most of us are). TaylorMade does make drivers that go farther than Titlelist during compared testing, However, it doesn’t matter if the average golfer cant keep it in play. I have tried out some of the TaylorMade drivers since 2009 to compare them to Titlelist and have not been impressed. The TaylorMade Slider was a bust (they cant give them away) and the models after that have been average. I recently tried out the TaylorMade M1 due to all the hype and could not keep it in play most of the time. I did crush the ball farther one out of ten times off the tee (280-300 yards). Anyway, I then hit the Titlelist 915 D3 and consistently kept it in the fairway (averaging 10 -15 yards shorter than TaylorMade). My point is that it doesn’t matter how far you can hit your driver or how far it has been tested for distance, if you can’t control it off the tee. Titlelist has figured this out for the average players. Lastly, I think the M1 will be another bust for TaylorMade (for average players). It will only be good for tour players and the average players will struggle with it. No one should have to make multiple changes to a driver in order to hit the ball off the tee. I will continue keep playing Titlelist drivers. It’s not about distance. It’s about keeping the ball in the fairway and not lying three.
This conversation can get technical pretty quickly, so allow me to summarize and provide a video from Titleist (below) that explains the concept in detail. The 915 series drivers have reduced thickness up front, and that helps with forgiveness, without sacrificing distance. Indeed “Distance without Sacrifice” is the theme of the entire 915 family of drivers, fairways, and hybrids.
Five years in development, the Titleist 915 driver features a new technology behind the clubface called the Active Recoil Channel (ARC), which allows the face to flex more evenly at impact, reducing spin and increasing ball speeds across the face. The clubface itself is more forgiving thanks to a new design and material while a lighter, ultra-thin cast crown saves weight, which has been repositioned towards the edges to boost the moment of inertia (MOI). Titleist says internal testing has shown the D2 version is 15 yards longer in total and the D3 is 20 yards longer than their predecessors.
