1. Callaway FT-9

Probably the best multi-material driver in the game. The composite/titanium head is extremely forgiving. I prefer the FT-9 to Callaway's FT-IQ driver because it allows you to work the ball a little more and, frankly, it looks better. This driver still gives good ball speed on off-centre hits.

2. Ping G10

The G10 is still selling well after a year and a half. It features a solid and traditional shaped head, combined with one of the best stock shafts in the game. We get great results with this driver in testing with a wide cross-section of players.

3. Cobra S9-1

Cobra clubs are maybe the easiest to hit. They feel really light and even beginners have an easy time getting them airborne. The offset M speed model is a slice killer. If you still slice with that club, book a lesson now!

4. Nike Dymo2 Str8t Fit

Nike has the best-looking square shaped driver on the market. The Str8t Fit model comes with an adjustable neck, so a player can choose from eight clubface, loft and lie angle settings. Adjustable clubs are gimmicky, but there's no question different settings give you different ball flights.

5. TaylorMade R9

TaylorMade has the best-selling driver, and always makes a great looking and feeling product. Like the Dymo, this has an eight-way adjustable neck and three adjustable head weights. Work with a PGA fitting pro to find your proper setting. Trying to figure out all the settings yourself could get confusing.
