2017 Newest in Drivers

As drivers get more adjustable, golfers should see their tee shots get longer and straighter.

1 | Callaway Big Bertha Epic
The first driver with new “Jailbreak” technology—reducing crown and sole deflection so the face produces more energy at impact—plus a sleeker shape and a redesigned adjustable-weight system for increased distance and control. $499

2 | Cobra F7
Along with a large, thin, hot face and adjustable weights to control ball flight and direction, this driver has an Arccos sensor in the grip that compiles data including distance, accuracy, and hole yardages. $349; F7+ model has smaller head. $399

3 | Mizuno JPX 900

4 | Titleist 917
The deep sole channel and forged face insert create faster ball speed for distance with forgiveness. Weights are adjustable and the hosel has 16 different loft/lie settings. Available in 460cc D2 model or smaller, more traditionally shaped D3. $499

The winner of the “Driver vs. Driver” competition on Golf Channel features two changeable soles (for launch angle), five moveable weights (for ball flight), an adjustable hosel with six settings, and a large alignment aid for easy set-up. $450
