Top Drivers of 2019

Top Drivers of 2019

2019 was a great year for drivers. All of the big OEM companies created a driver this year that would look great in your bag for the 2020 season. These are our picks for the Top Drivers of 2019. A lot of times, people who review clubs, drivers, golf equipment, apparel, ect. get too technical with their assessment. What does it all mean and how does it help me on the golf course. Our review cuts our the technical jargon and we stick to what the “Sunday Golfer” should be looking for in their next driver.

There are only a couple of things we look for in a driver. Does it look great, does it sound great and will it give me a chance to hit it long and “somewhat” straight. These top drivers of 2019 give us all three in different ways. Check it out!

COBRA: KING F9

TAYLORMADE: M6

CALLAWAY: EPIC FLASH

CLEVELAND: LAUNCHER TURBO

PING: G410

Check out the video above to learn more on why we picked these drivers for the Top Drivers of 2019. The holiday season is quickly approaching… get one for yourself or the golfer in your life!

 

V1 Golf App: AJ Avoli

V1 Golf App: AJ Avoli

Named to the “Best Young Teachers in America” list by Golf Digest, AJ Avoli is the Director of Golf at the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, CA. Over the years, AJ Avoli has helped his students and members with golf by using the V1 Sports Golf App as well as the RoboGolfPro®.  Using these two technologies together gives AJ Avoli the tools to help golfers the way nobody else can! We were in the area, so we stopped by his academy to learn more about his process.

When people think about instruction, most the time you will think about a student and coach out on the range. With AJ, it is so much more than that. His process to helping golfers get better starts on the range and ends on the range, but what he does in-between is what sets him apart. After hitting the initial shots on the range (Captured by the V1 Golf App), Avoli brings you back into the tent to critique your swing. After talking about what needs to be fixed, he then puts you on the RoboGolfPro® to let you feel what your PERFECT golf swing should feel like. To tie all of this together, he captures another set of videos while on the RoboGolfPro® and compares both swings using the V1 Golf App. His process has helped goflers across California as well as the U.S get better and enjoy the game to the max.
