Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches

PGA National (Champion Course)



Our Review:

Known for their aerodynamically angled sole, the SIM drivers of last year changed how shape improves speed. This update of the SIM platform is a fundamental change in how that head is made. The goal is to increase forgiveness for three types of players through a construction that eliminates titanium from everywhere except the face and replaces it almost entirely with lightweight carbon fiber. This frees up more mass to be redistributed so that the low-spin (SIM2), mid-launch (SIM2 Max) or anti-slice (SIM2 Max·D) users get more bang at impact, wherever that impact might be. First, two carbon-fiber shells form the top and bottom to save weight. They are joined by a light, forged-aluminum ring that circles the perimeter and locks into a titanium cupface that has a variable thickness precisely milled in the back. Finally, the tungsten weight in the angled keel is heavier and farther back than before to stabilize off-center hits. The design features a more responsive sole slot and a resin injected behind the face to push the springlike-effect limits. Read more >>

Ball just jumps off the face and really saw high clubhead speed, too. The sound resonates, but still nicely muted with some great feedback. Love the classic deep face.


Beautiful color scheme with blue, white and carbon fiber, could stare at it all day. Firmer feel and one of a kind sound, definitely some massive shots. Confident and want to go after it.


The crisp graphics help the club look smaller and more nimble at address. Clean sound and feel. The club isn’t heavy but still felt meaty. I even saw higher swing speeds.
