Round-up of the best drivers for senior golfers.

Tour Edge Exotics E722 Driver

Looking for a new driver suited to slower swing speeds and senior golfers? The best golf drivers for seniors 2023 have been picked out.

Recommending drivers for seniors isn’t as straight forward as it might seem. While certain drivers fit certain groups of golfers such as high handicappers or low handicappers, senior golfers encompass a wide range of abilities.

A senior golfer could be someone who is still an elite player shooting par every second round or it could be a total beginner just picking up a set of clubs for the first time.

What is common to all seniors is that their swings are getting slower and the ball isn’t going as far. And while the obvious solution is to switch to a more flexible shaft, the type of driver can also prove to be extremely beneficial.

Here’s our best golf drivers for seniors for the year ahead:

Ping G425 Max Driver

Ping G425 Max Driver

In truth, the Ping G425 Max is a club for every golfer. No matter what level a senior is at, they will find a benefit in the unparalleled forgiveness the G425 Max has to offer.

The driver enjoys Ping’s highest ever Moment of Inertia (MOI) giving it forgiveness, although that has since been surpassed by the new G430 driver.

Advancements in the driver’s Dragonfly crown technology have resulted in weight savings and a 26-gram moveable tungsten weight, again adding to the forgiveness. This shifting weight can also be set to fade, neutral or draw bias to suit all golfers’ needs.

Maximising distance is key for Seniors. The Ping G425 Max helps achieve this by keeping the ball in play and on the fairway.

Callaway Great Big Bertha Driver

Unfortunately for the Great Big Bertha, it is often overshadowed by Callaway’s Rogue ST and Paradym range. Despite this, the Great Big Bertha has a huge amount to offer, especially to Seniors and players with slower swing speeds.

It is Callaway’s most technologically advanced driver, marrying an ultra-lightweight chassis with an easy-to-swing design designed to increase clubhead speed and distance.

A forged Carbon Sole and Triaxial Carbon Crown increase MOI while the Jailbreak Speed Frame allows for higher ball speeds. Finally, its A.I. Designed Flash Face allows for lower spin resulting in more distance.

While the Great Big Bertha is a superb option for Seniors, it doesn’t come cheap.
