Best Drivers of 2020

By: Golfshake Editor | Fri 24 Jan 2020 | Comments


With so many new drivers being launched onto the market for this year, it can be hard to choose between them, but to help you find the best to try out at the range or consider buying to enhance your game, Golfshake's Equipment Expert Ryan Rastall has selected his favourites for 2020, identifying the top releases and explaining why they are so good.

Ryan is the PGA Professional at Howley Hall Golf Club in Leeds and has tested many of these new drivers at the venue's acclaimed Performance Centre, including the use of TrackMan data to analyse their performance and make an informed assessment.

Callaway MAVRIK

Callaway's new MAVRIK Driver builds on the success of last year's Epic Flash, designed through the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, creating a noticeably thinner face and expansive area to promote faster ball speeds. Additionally, the MAVRIK Sub Zero Driver is a lower spin model with a slightly small head, whereas the MAVRIK MAX is for golfers who need that extra little help to launch the ball, featuring the largest footprint of the three drivers.

Titleist TS Series

Result of Titleist's Speed Project, the TS Drivers feature several key innovations, notably an Ultra-Thin Titanium Crown, a Streamlined Shape that reduces drag up to 20%, Optimised Weight Distribution, and a Thinner, Faster Face, all of which have been engineered to help golfers gain additional yards from the tee.

TaylorMade SIM & SIM MAX

Reported to be the fastest drivers that TaylorMade has released, the SIM and SIM MAX boast an advanced geometric shaping, deploying enhanced aerodynamics to improve performance through greater clubhead speed and forgiveness, in addition to featuring lightweight carbon composite materials and Speed Injected Twist Face.

Developed by Mizuno's Japanese and American Research & Development Teams, the revered manufacturer has revealed three new ST200 Drivers, with the headline model delivering low spin and forgiveness, presenting a high stability driver. The G has been designed for golfers who have fast swing speeds, whereas the X has been created with a draw bias, engineered for golfers with moderate to slower movement through the ball.

PING G410

PING's G410 LST Driver is a low spin model that has been designed to produce stable spin with greater shot shaping control for those golfers with a faster swing speed, but this still possesses the popular moveable weight technology that was an acclaimed aspect of the original G410.

Cleveland Launcher HB Turbo

Less expensive than many other drivers on the market, the Cleveland Launcher HB Turbo is packed with technology that unsurprisingly has been introduced to help golfers drive the ball longer from the tee. The Turbocharged Cup Face is enhanced with a new variable face and provides a larger impact area for increased ball speeds.
