“Our studies indicate that 80% of golfers are playing the wrong loft in their driver,” said Tom Kroll, Global Product Marketing Manager of Metalwoods for TaylorMade. “The availability of this app is yet another way for us to reach and educate more consumers on the benefits of proper driver fittings.”

Golfers can also get fit for their R1 driver with the help of a certified club fitter and launch monitor at either an off-course retailer or green grass shop. TaylorMade also has hundreds of demo days scheduled throughout the U.S. during the next few months.

The R1 is already the No. 1 driver model on the PGA Tour and has won four times (Dustin Johnson/Hyundai Tournament of Champions, Brian Gay/Humana Challenge, John Cook/Mitsubishi Electric Championship and Stephen Gallacher/Omega Dubai Desert Classic).

    I agree Joey. Take lessons to fix your swing, and then buy a club that complements it.

    My studies show most players would be better served by spending the $400 on lessons.

Published

The Open Championship often provides players with different scenarios than they are used to, with some players adapting their bag setups for the challenge of links golf.

Courtesy of Sports Marketing Surveys, we can take a look at the 29 different bag setups from the 2021 Open Championship, with the most popular being a one driver, fairway wood, utility iron, 4-9 irons and four wedges approach.

The least popular setup, only being used by one player (Phil Mickelson), is a two-driver approach with Lefty’s mini driver counted as his second big stick in the bag.

Join the discussion in our forums here, where our members have been discussing the pro’s setups and which is closest to their own.

Best driver shaft of 2021: The top 5

1. Fujikura Ventus Blue

What Fujikura says: “A multi-material bias core construction that delivers ultimate stability through transition and impact (maximizing clubhead MOI) – increasing velocity and smash factor. The multi-material core is crafted with full-length, ultra-high modulus Pitch 70 Ton Carbon Fiber — 150% stronger and more stable than T1100g — for ultimate stability, and 40 Ton bias layers ensure incredible feel.”

2. Fujikura Ventus Black

From our launch piece: “The Ventus Black is an extremely stout profile designed for more aggressive players with a stiffer profile in the butt section and especially in the tip section compared to the original Ventus Blue profile.”

3. Fujikura Ventus Red

From our launch piece: “The Ventus Red is designed to achieve slightly higher launch and spin than the current profile of Ventus Blue—which can be both helpful in the driver and fairway woods.”

4. Graphite Design Tour AD DI

From our launch piece: “The Tour AD DI “DEEP IMPACT” is designed to provide golfers with more power and stability in a golf shaft. It is the brand’s first shaft design that was integrated with Toray Company’s original NANOALLOY material technology in the tip section of the shaft. This material technology is known as “DI Technology” and aims to offer players additional shaft stability without the loss of feel.”

5 (tie). Project X HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX, Mitsubishi Tensei Pro White 1K

What Project X says: “The HZRDUS brand is a distinguished mark of the aggressive swinger, and that legacy is continued with the new HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX. Built with 100% aerospace materials, Smoke Black RDX is the first shaft to utilize Hexcel’s new HexTow® HM54 high modulus carbon fiber and combines it with high tensile strength HexTow® IM2C carbon fiber to provide the ideal blend of stiffness and stability desired by the HZRDUS player.”

What Mitsubishi says: “Created using extraordinary 1K Fiber that is 3x thinner than Carbon Kevlar for a tighter, more consistent weave. This super premium fiber produces an amazing “1K feel” by transmitting more of the high frequency vibrations needed to feel the true quality of impact. Constructed utilizing the new dual-phase XLINK Tech Resin System for a carbon-rich structure that is both stronger and more responsive. Boron fiber in the tip caps off this exceptional design. Available from 50R to 80TX, giving a wide range of players the opportunity to play a super premium 1K shaft.”
