Wilson Dynapower Carbon

Why We Like It

If you’re going to make a low-spinning head, you must replace as much titanium with lighter carbon composite as you can. That’s why the crown and the toe section of the sole have relatively weightless carbon-composite pieces. Switching from titanium to carbon composite in the body helps to lower the center of gravity thanks to the 12-gram internal weight that rests slightly closer to the face compared to the all-titanium model. That produces the lower-spinning shots favored by elite players and a slightly lower-launching ball flight.

Max-out Your Speed and Carry Distance with The Driver

Whether you want more distance or a consistent shot shape, you need one skill above all others: the ability to make flush contact with the ball. It’s the No. 1 fundamental in golf, and without it, this game can be an eternal mystery. Here, Sean Hogan, one of Golf Digest’s Best Teachers in Florida, helps you improve your impact with the driver.
