Because last year’s driver is still pretty great…
Let’s be honest. It’s not so much a lack of technology that causes you to slice off the tee. Every. Single. Time. It’s more likely the burning self-doubt that creeps into your brain every time you square up the club. But new clubs are shiny, and that initial glow can be enough to distract you from the darker realities of your mental game. So, if you’re going to sell yourself on the idea of new driver, go about it the smart way. Last year’s TaylorMade R11S TP Fairway comes with the trademark adjustable Flight Control Technology, with 24 different combinations of loft and angle settings. Better still, it’s $200 cheaper than it was a season ago.
