Golf Australia Express : February 2013
DRIVERS THIS YEAR, we can look forward to many colourful offerings off the tee. Nike’s VR_S Covert—with a red crown and black face—cannot be missed, and Cobra’s AMP Cell comes in a range of colours to work with your wardrobe. Club design, though, is fraught with strong opinions regarding its impact on focus and concentration during the address of the ball—it is not surprising that the mirror ball driver is yet to make an appearance. TaylorMade’s R1 has taken a middle line here with graphical aids to assist alignment towards the face, while a more colourful design sits towards the back of the club head. They were perhaps inspired by the heyday of the mullet which was said to put work out the front, party out back. In fitting with the trend towards personalisation, it is increasingly common to read about a wide range of shafts available to accommodate every swing imaginable. There are pages describing the choices available with this year’s drivers, and the fitting process will add value to the bricks and mortar experience. The bottom line: if you’re buying a driver this year, chances are it will be more personalised to your swing and game than any other club in the history of mass-produced golf equipment.
