    Pro Tip: Golf Driver Comparison by Handicap and Brand

    Comparing golf drivers by handicap and brand is the best way to begin finding the right driver for you. Each major golf brand designs drivers for specific types of golfers. Whether you’re a professional golfer, avid amateur or a beginner, there’s a driver with your name on it.

    Similar to how we compared golf irons, fairway woods and hybrids by handicap and brand, we have done the same with drivers from 2020 to 2022. We’ll be looking into top brands like Callaway, TaylorMade, PING and more.

    Handicap can dictate which type of driver will work best in your golf bag. For example, the best golf drivers for high handicappers typically have a higher launch angle. If you’re a low-handicap golfer, you may be interested in drivers with higher customizability and control. If you’re a mid-handicap golfer, you’ll have plenty of options to explore.
