Bryson DeChambeau — winner of the 2015 U.S. Amateur and NCAA Men’s Individual Golf Championships and recently turned professional — plays with a unique set of irons and wedges that all measure the same length.
In my video, I review Sterling Irons from Tom Wishon and Jaacob Bowden that are designed to also measure one length throughout the set.
Best driver under $100
Look, we get it, golf clubs, more specifically new drivers, can be expensive. Once you factor in the potential cost of a fitting and or other shaft options you could be looking at a single club that retails for close to $1,000—that’s a lot of dough! That’s why we want to help show you what you can get for your money with the best driver under $100.
As much as we love new clubs and new technology, at GolfWRX we still love to find the best deals to help golfers get the most value and when it comes to clubs and in this case drivers. There is a lot of value in the marketplace if you know where to look, so we did the looking for you and have assembled the best drivers you can find under $100.
** Note: Used club prices fluctuate and the clubs selected for this list we’re easily located in good shape for under the stated $100 price point **
Best driver under $100
As far as marketing a driver goes, I don’t think anyone has still quite figured out how or why tour player puppet look-a-likes was a great idea, but the Jet Speed driver itself was actually a really good driver that offered adjustability and mid to lower spin in a forgiving design. The best part about the JetSpeed is the current TaylorMade adapter is still compatible, so if you happen to have a few shafts kicking around you can even do some testing.
The XTD was the last “premium line” driver ever produced by Adams golf, and it benefits from the fact that by this time TaylorMade had purchased the Plano, Texas-based company and it was using the same adapter tip as the current crop of TaylorMade drivers.
It was designed to produced right to the limit CT/CoR numbers, thanks in part to slots placed both on the sole but also on the crown, and because of this design, it was a bit of an acquired taste for some golfers. If you can get past the looks from address, you will have yourself a driver that keeps up to almost anything.
The Titleist 910 is another driver that benefits from being older, while still using the same type of adapter as the modern models. It came in two versions; the 910D2 which was shallower and more forgiving, and the 910D3 which is a more traditional pear shape with a taller face that offers lower spin.
Both versions of the driver can be found in nice shape for under $100, and if you take some time to look around, you can find quite a few with aftermarket shafts that make this best driver under $100 seem like a complete bargain.
Cleveland Launcher DST – Distance Sub Three hundred
The Cleveland Launcher DST drivers could be one of the best all-around options when it comes to a driver for under $100.
Like others on this list, the Launcher DST came in a couple of options; a standard model and a “tour” version featuring a lower spinning fade biased head design. For the stronger players that prefer a fixed hosel, the DST Tour came stock with a Miyazaki Kusala Black which in the aftermarket would cost around $300 on its own!

I have a personal belief that the MP-18s will go down as one of the best modern Mizuno blades ever made – classic straight muscle design with a square look from address. If I didn’t already own a set these wouldn’t be for sale anymore, so consider it a sign that if you’re in the market these are for you!

Although they never received the love they truly deserved, the Honma Rose Protos are undoubtedly one of the nicest-looking blade irons in modern memory. This is a fantastic deal on a fantastic set of irons.
