Best of 2021

Despite the struggles that have affected us all in the last 18 months or so, golf has been fortunate to have experienced something of a boom since the summer of 2020, with more people than ever choosing to take up the game.

As a result of this, there have been a number of golfers buying new golf equipment and of course whenever this happens, drivers are one of the first products they look to, and there are obvious reasons for this. It's the most glamorous, most expensive and most fun of all the clubs in the bag - so you need to make sure you make the right decision if you're looking for a new big stick.

We've put together the best drivers that we've tested in 2021 to give you an idea of where you should be looking.

TaylorMade SIM2 Max Driver

TaylorMade SIM2 Max Driver

Released: 19/02/2021

RRP As Reviewed: £449

Quick Hit: TaylorMade make further improvements to their driver range and the SIM2 is an ideal option for golfers with higher swing speeds seeking low spin and low launch.

The Tech: A new asymmetric Inertia Generator is shaped to provide faster club head speeds, whilst a new Forged Ring Construction (the big blue thing on the back) is designed to increase forgiveness and stability

Golfalot Says: If you didn't manage to get your hands on a SIM then I would definitely recommend the SIM2, as they are the same price as last year's, they look better and I found they perform slightly better too.

Ping G425 LST Driver

Ping G425 LST Driver

Released: 11/01/2021

RRP As Reviewed: £450

Quick Hit: They’ve nailed the stability and are starting to find a few more yards too, especially in this long spin option. Looks like a winning combination...

The Tech: A pear shaped 445cc head with a 17g CG shifting weight at the back to allow you to dial in your ball flight. The LST model is said to reduce spin by 200 rpm compared to the G410, and as much as 700rpm compared to the G425 Max.

Golfalot Says: There are no tricks in the G425 driver range, no fancy bits hanging off, no 'out-there' names or colours. This a simple and premium looking driver and the range has enough options to suit all ranges of golfers.

Callaway Epic Speed Driver

Callaway Epic Speed Driver

Released: 18/02/2021

RRP As Reviewed: £499

Quick Hit: Usual Callaway distance but with more stability that makes it the whole package, and the return to the Epic name and styling should be a win among golfers.

The Tech: A new A.I. Jailbreak Speed Frame provides both horizontal and vertical stiffness, producing faster ball speeds across a wider area of the face, whilst a new Cyclone Aero shape promotes less drag for higher clubhead speeds.

Golfalot Says: This driver felt fast. It looks great and performs really well, with great forgiveness levels which didn't leave me worried about not hitting it out of the middle.

Wilson D9 Driver

Wilson D9 Driver

Released: 22/01/21

RRP As Reviewed: £299

Quick Hit: Wilson make a big claim for most underrated driver of the year as the D9 competes with the 'big boys' in the data and looks department at less than £300.

The Tech: A generative design process produces the Peak Kinetic Response face, divided into different zones to optimise performance in each area of the face.

Golfalot Says: The best Wilson driver that I have seen.

Cobra Radspeed Driver

Cobra Radspeed Driver

Released: 08/12/2020

RRP As Reviewed: £369

Quick Hit: Packed with technology, priced reasonably and now among the top flight of drivers on the market when it comes to performance.

The Tech: Radial weighting pushed right to the front and back of the club head aim to maximise club speed without sacrificing any forgiveness.

Golfalot Says: Radspeed has confirmed to me that Cobra have broken into the top flight of drivers and should be on everyone's mind when wanting to upgrade their driver.

Titleist TSi3 Driver

Titleist TSi3 Driver

Released: 15/10/2020

RRP As Reviewed: £519

Quick Hit: The most played driver on the PGA Tour, and for good reason. Great looking, feeling and performing driver.

The Tech: A new aerodynamic head shape decreases drag over the crown by 15%, the aerospace-grade ATI 425 face insert produces high ball speed right across the face, and a new SureFit CG Track allows you to fine-tune ball flight with neutral, heel or toe settings.

Golfalot Says: I felt so comfortable straight away. The flight, height and strike were exactly what I was looking for in a driver.
