Top Five Clubs For 2012
January 10, 2012

Ever wondered how the pro's manage to send balls flying 300 yards and more? Then consider this list of the top five golf clubs for 2012 as your starting point. No matter how good your swing, without a top driver to back it up you'll never see that ball disappear into the sunset. Start this year right and get the equipment to compliment and enhance your abilities.

Acer XF Leggera - With as slightly lighter than average club head, weighing only 190g, this club allows for two alternative setups. Either, you can have a lighter 45" club, giving great speed to your swing, or you could choose to add an inch to the driver and create longer driver with the same weight as a 45". The second option is intriguing, as greater length in driver equals more distance. However, be wary that greater length may also mean less control, but if you can handle it this club will definitely give you an edge over others.

Callaway RAZR Hawk - Callaway built this club using forged composite technology they created with Lamborghini. The length might not be as easy to achieve with this as with the Acer XF, but when attempting off-center hits you should experience a marked decrease in spin resulting in more ground roll. The features big improvement from the FT-9, with drag reduced by 43%, resulting in greater distance and speed. A top quality driver, with a price to reflect, this is highly recommended.

Cobra S2 - Incredible looking driver with great design and colour pattern, featuring sunburst rays on a classically shaped head. The impact feels different to other Cobra drivers due to the titanium face, in fact it feels very strange. However, the results achieved make it all worth while as this driver can perform on par with the best. It produces great distance, despite the lack of comfort. If your looking to increase your hitting distance then I recommend giving the Cobra S2 golf club a try, however, if you want to enjoy a smooth swing one of the other drivers listed here may be more suitable.

Titleist Pro Titanium 905R - This is the biggest driver Titleist has ever built, making its way into the 460cc range. The driver, which looks very similar to previous Titleist's despite its increased size, is already being used by 18 PGA Tour Pros. The drivers design increases ball speed for off-center hits and produces a powerful impact, far greater than the 905S or 905T. Titleist are, or course, a world class brand and this driver does not fail to live up to that reputation.

Cleveland TL310 - This driver claims to have reduced weight without losing swingweight or flex profile, and it appears to live up to this claim. The trajectory this driver produces is lower than normal but the distance it achieve remains solid. That said, if you life a high angle trajectory then this driver may not be for you, though I would recommend it for those windy days.

The top five golf clubs of 2012, as listed above, will give you the potential to produce some excellent results on the course. Don't settle for lower quality if you can afford not to, it will affect your game no matter how skilled you are. Now get yourself a driver and hit the fairway!
