2014 Hot List: Drivers
All 12 are adjustable—for the first time
Editor's Note: GolfDigest.com will reveal winners in the different categories in the 2014 Hot List every day beginning Jan. 22.
LISTED ALPHABETICALLY | (L) LOW-HANDICAPPER | (M) MIDDLE-HANDICAPPER
CALLAWAY BIG BERTHA ALPHA
LOFTS: 9, 10.5 (all adjustable)
TECH TALK: This driver features the same eight independent settings of loft and lie on its adjustable hosel as the Big Bertha and X2 Hot drivers. It also has the movable heel and toe weights (one, three, five and seven grams) found in last year's RAZR Fit Xtreme. But it now adds a third adjustable element that allows the center of gravity (CG) to be raised or lowered.
L: "Sets up square. Dependable. I always knew where my ball was going."
M: "It produced the best sound and ball flight of any driver I've hit. The impact feels cushy but firm."
HOT: With the ability to adjust the CG horizontally and vertically as well as the loft and lie angle independently, this driver stands alone technologically.
NOT: At $500, it stands alone in another way, too.
