Best Drivers For Mid-Handicappers 2021

Although many low handicappers and professionals will argue that the putter is the most important club in the bag, most mid handicappers will say it is the driver.

There is no question that getting the start of your golf hole off to a great start is going to make the game quite a bit easier.

Luckily the 2021 driver releases are going to help your year, and your tee shot gets off to a great start. Here are ten of the best drivers on the market in 2021.

The Low Down

We chose three options that stand out as the best choices out there.

The best overall choice is Callaway B21.

This is a brand new driver with more forgiveness than we have ever seen in a club.

Coming in as the best premium choice is the often overlooked TaylorMade MGloire.

The MGloire has more technology packed in than any driver on the market.

Lastly, our favorite choice for the money is the Cobra Speedzone.

Cobra is so fair about their pricing, but they know how to compete when it comes to distance as well.

Best Choice: Callaway Big Bertha B21

  • Draw bias

  • High Launch

  • Low and forward center of gravity

“The Callaway Big Bertha B21 takes advantage of that Artificial Intelligence and opens up yet another door to forgiveness and distance for the mid handicapper.”

If we did a golf club category with the highest ball speed, the Callaway Mavrik would be the winner.

7. TaylorMade M6 Driver (460cc)

Selling Points

  • Speed injected twist face

  • High MOI

  • Very fast ball speeds

Key Features

The M6 driver is known for its high ball speeds and easy distance for the mid handicapper. One of the best things about this club is that it was once close to $500. The M6 has some very impressive technology, and many will admit that it is almost as good as the brand new and more expensive SIM Max. TaylorMade went all out with the engineering on this driver to make it one of the fastest that golf has ever seen.

Technology

  • Speed injected Twist Face
  • Aerodynamic Carbon Sole
  • Speed Pocket
  • Hammerhead

Adjustability: TaylorMade Loft Sleeve
Shaft Type & Flex & Grips:Fujikura Atmos Orange
Lofts Available:9, 10.5., 12

Performance & Accuracy

There are two things that make the M6 driver stand out; the first is the speed injected twist face, and the second is the hammer head technology. Between these two impressive technologies, you are going to get a lot of distance with the ability to control where the shots are going.

Who Should Buy

Low to high handicappers have enjoyed the performance that this club brings.

Pros:

  • Large sweet spot

8. Cleveland Golf Launcher Turbo Driver

Selling Points

  • Encourages very straight ball flight

  • Hi Bore Crown

  • Counter balanced shaft design

Key Features

The Cleveland Turbo Launcher is the next in a series of long and forgiving launcher drivers. The latest Launcher features the Hibore crown, a large sweet spot, and a new variable face. Cleveland has always done a great appeal to the higher handicapper; however, many average golfers are starting to realize the impressive features of Cleveland. If you want a reliable and straight driver that does not mess around with weighting or adjustability, this is a perfect choice.

Technology

  • Hi bore crown
  • Deep weighting
  • Lightweight hosel
  • High launching

Adjustability: None
Shaft Type & Flex & Grips:Miyazaki Lightweight Graphite Shaft
Lofts Available:9, 10.5, 12

Performance & Accuracy

The fact that the Launcher is not adjustable should not be looked at as a flaw. The fact that the hosel can’t be adjusted is partly what makes the driver so light and so capable of getting the slower swinging players the speed that they need. The low center of gravity provides tremendous launch as well. If you want to stand on a tee bod with confidence, the Turbo Launcher is a great option.

Who Should Buy

Mid to high handicappers looking for more club head speed.

Pros:

  • High ball flight
  • Easy launch
  • Lightweight shaft and club options

Cons:

  • No adjustability makes it hard to choose the proper loft

Overall rating: 92/100

9. Srixon Z 585 Driver

Selling Points

  • Cup face technology for high ball speed

  • Lots of distance

  • No adjustability for the lightweight hosel

Key Features

For some reason, the Srizon golf clubs always seem to remain on the back burner. If you don’t like any of the prominent manufacturer’s drivers, then you may start looking at Srixon. In reality, Srixon easily competes with some of the best golf clubs on the market. This Z 585 driver is perfect for a mid handicapper looking for a classic shape and easy to use performance.

Technology

  • Ti51AF Cup Face
  • Nonadjustable hosel
  • Carbon crown

Adjustability: None
Shaft Type & Flex & Grips:Project X Hzrdus Red
Lofts Available:10.5, 9.5

Performance & Accuracy

The Z 585, just like the Launcher Turbo, does not come with adjustability. What you see with this driver is what you get. The positive to losing that adjustable hosel is that the center of gravity can be positioned a little lower, and the overall weight is also quite a bit lower. This is another great club for those that struggle with speed.

Who Should Buy

Mid handicappers with slower swing speed that need higher ball flight and more control.

Pros:

  • Lightweight carbon
  • Cup face technology for ball speed
  • Fair pricing

Cons:

  • Have to be careful choosing the right loft because there is no adjustability

Overall Rating: 92/100
