Other Factors To Consider
The weight of the club is going to be important, especially for seniors but it is not fair to throw every senior golfer into the same bucket as some will swing the club faster than others, just like with any age group.
Find out what your swing speed is so that you know the shaft type that is best for your game whether that is super light and flexible or a bit stiffer and with more regular flex to get that extra bit of distance for the faster swingers.
The shaft you get included with the club will likely represent the price you pay for your driver. The more expensive drivers usually come with more options in regards to shaft weight and material and they will usually come pre loaded with high end shafts for peak performance.
If you decide to go for the Majek, Wilson or the Cleveland, you may also get a stock shaft which isn’t the end of the world but may not offer as much for the more experienced players.
Senior players will benefit from a higher degree of loft than the average player that will allow them to get a better launch trajectory and overall distance on their drives. We recommend a degree of loft that is at least 12 degrees that will suit a slower swing speed but this is always going to come down to being a matter of personal preference for any golfer.
While some players want a constant value in the degree of their loft, it never hurts to have more options in my opinion and tweaking the adjustable head on your driver can be a quick and effective way to cure a slice or a hook and most of the better drivers will come with an adjustable head.
You normally get what you pay for in this world and from what we have seen throughout the years, this statement usually holds true for golf as well.
As we enter our senior years, we have a lot more time to spend playing golf and hopefully we have some money to invest in nice equipment as well.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with the Taylormade RBZ, walking out onto the course with The Sim Driver can make you feel like a hero.
If you want top quality for a bit less, you could always try the M4 and the M2 from Taylormade which are both excellent clubs.
Hopefully, our list of the best senior golf drivers has helped you narrow down some of the hundreds of choices that are out there. Choose a club that works for your budget, but keep in mind that distance is probably going to be the most critical factor for a senior player.
As swing speeds start to slow down, your distances will decrease. This decrease can be quite frustrating and unfortunate. Luckily if your driver has not been updated in the last few years, all it may take is a change of driver.
