The Verdict: Most golfers need more speed and forgiveness from their drivers, but the trouble is, those two things often work against each other. A big clubhead with a forgiving face can be harder to swing fast because its shape is aerodynamically inefficient. Callaway worked with Boeing to improve the way the XR16 moves through the air. The step feature on the crown helps reduce aerodynamic drag. But designers didn’t skimp on forgiveness. The lightweight titanium alloy in the body means more weight can be repurposed for a low center of gravity and stability on off-center hits. The shallow face is also lighter and thinner than last year to improve flex (speed) and save more weight (forgiveness).
