Hot List: Major-Winning Drivers

At the close of the PGA Championship, we review the drivers that have won at the highest level.

August 2011
Major Winning Drivers

Want some historical Hot List perspective? Fifteen of the last 16 majors were won by a player using a driver model that was either named to the Hot List, or a derivative version of a driver named to the Hot List. Here's a rundown of the winners:

Cleveland Launcher Ultralite

2011 PGA Championship
Cleveland Launcher Ultralite TL310

Cleveland's second generation of lightweight drivers features three models: the XL270 weighs about 25 grams less than the 2010 Launcher DST; the SL290 is a bit shorter and 20 grams heavier than the XL270; and the TL310, which Keegan Bradley used to win the 2011 PGA Championship, is the shortest and heaviest of the three. The drivers earned Gold on the 2011 Golf Digest Hot List.
