Best Driver Length

Have you ever wondered why you sometimes hit your 3-wood as far or farther than your your driver?

Club Length: The #3 Wood is 43" which is 1.5" - 3" shorter than modern drivers. Shorter length is much easier to get a solid hit than with a longer length club.

Golf manufacturers use a "standard" driver length that is TOO long for 95% of men golfers and 100% of women golfers. Their drivers are 45" to 46" where as the average length of drivers used by PGA Tour Professionals is 44.5".

Why is this done? Because, companies advertise that the longer the length is, the longer you will hit the ball. Except it only works when you have smooth tempo, a consistent square swing path, a LATE RELEASE OF YOUR WRIST-COCK ANGLE, good swing timing and rhythm.

If this isn't you, it's not going to work.

If you score 85 +, the best driver length is between 43.5" and 44.25".
