World Match Play: Rory McIlroy & Tiger Woods are top seeds

All golf fans couldn`t wait for this year World Golf Match Play draw. We all have our golf drivers ready to be part of this exciting occasion. Who will win this year? That`s a million dollar question! The top 64 players in the world are eligible to play in the tournament, which pits golfers against each other in a series of knockout matches – Mickelson and Brandt Snedeker’s decision to pull out, opened the door for Lowry and Sweden’s Fredrik Jacobson, who will play reigning Open champion Ernie Els. Defending champion Mahan opens his campaign against Matteo Manassero of Italy, while other stand-out ties include England’s 2010 champion Ian Poulter playing Scotland’s Steven Gallacher and Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell taking on Ireland’s Padraig Harrington.

World number one Rory McIlroy will play Shane Lowry in the first round of the WGC Match Play Championship in Arizona.

The Northern Irishman, who was beaten by American Hunter Mahan in last year’s final, plays Ireland’s Lowry who gained his place when Phil Mickelson withdrew.

World number two and three-times winner Tiger Woods takes on fellow American Charles Howell III on Wednesday.

 

Donald, who won the title in 2011, is ranked third and heads the Sam Snead quarter of the draw while McIlroy and Woods are the top seeds in the Bobby Jones and Ben Hogan sections.

The fourth bracket is led by number four seed Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa.

The Top 5 Golf Drivers of 2012

Golf Club World`s Top 5 golf drivers chart.

Callaway Razr Fit

Callaway RazrFit

This beautiful and popular driver has attracted great reviews from golfers across the planet or all abilities. This is the first driver that Callaway have made that features adjustable weights and rotating hosel. This means that golfers can change the centre of gravity and the angle of the face heard to suit their own swing and game. Callaway have also shaved 4 grams off the weight of the club face to help slow swingers and improve ball speed for off centre shots. Although these features are not new to golf drivers Callaway have done a fantastic job with this and it justifies its place as top of the list of drivers of 2012.

Nike VR S

Nike VR

The fantastic Nike driver features a variable thickness face has been designed to help with those annoying off centre hits. This club is very forgiving in that sense. The head can be adjusted through 4 degrees with eight angles the club face can be set to, offering a significant amount of variation to suit the individual golfer. The shaft now weighs less than 60 grams so you also see a significant improvement in the pace of your swing.

Cobra Amp

Cobra Amp

The Cobra Amp is the best looking club in my top 5. I am very impressed with the stylish design of this golf driver. Having said this the Cobra is here on merit not appearance. The driver has three setting that can be applied to the angle of the face. The great part of this driver is how the shaft length, swing weight and face curvature change in relation to the loft. This means that helps you with the aspect of your game that needs help. If you are a faster swinger it will improve your control and if you swing slow it will improve pace.

PING G20

Ping G20

The PING G20 is designed for a low centre of gravity. This is achieved using a low density titanium to save weight which has been repositioned within the club. The shaft has a high balance point and is light weight, putting seven grams extra into the club head to ensure more power from the same strength swing.

Cleveland Classic

Cleveland Classic

This club has an attractive vintage design which makes it stands out. In addition to the style this driver boasts some great features to help golfers with slower swings. The Cleveland Classic is one of the most light weight clubs on the scene at the moment is between 30 to 50 grams lighter than most of its competitors. All of this range uses a Miyazaki shaft which weighs less than 55 grams and a rubber grip weighing less than 25 grams. Cleveland have built on their previous light weight designs and seem excel in this arena, light weight drivers.

Over the years the technological improvement of golf clubs in general has been rapid and extensive. Drivers in particular have come on leaps and bounds in the last decade. Most premium drivers are heavily engineered and are great at helping you to get great flight of the T.

A lot of this engineering has come from the design of the head. Tiger Woods was quoted in 2011 saying he looked for a driver that could help him hit further and straighter and that he felt Nike Golf had really achieved this in their 2011 and 2012 range by reducing unwanted spin off the club face. If technology has helped Tiger I am sure the rest of us will have seen massive improvements.

So what has and what will 2013 bring in terms of new drivers?

In an interesting review I watched recently with Gary Seal, a scratch golfer, I noticed he commented on how much improvement he had observed in the shafts of clubs. Like me he feels that a lot of the major advances in club heads had been found and implemented and that significant advances in this area were unlikely, Gary feels like the real improvements made in 2012 have come by introducing premium shafts.

Some of this change has been in the appearance of the shaft and handles but this is mainly aesthetic, I would like to know what improvements have been made that will help my game. I am sure golfers like Ian Poulter will have great fun with a variety of coloured shafts but this won’t help me on cold Tuesday morning at my local club.

The reduction in the weight of the shafts is definitely a big improvement. Light weight shafts on golf clubs is an advantage to all golfers but does offers us older golfers an added advantage because although over the years I have improved my game dramatically in lots of areas I can feel that the speed of my swing has slowed down and although I spend less time in the rough than in my younger days I would like to combine this control with more pace and distance. I have noticed that the great new clubs of 2012 have seen dramatic improvement in this area.

There also seems to be more drivers with longer shaft lengths being promoted and sold. Having tried some longer shafts I have noticed that personally this does have a dramatic improvement on the speed of my swing but I do seem to be losing some of the control, so I won’t be rushing out to get a 46 length. This is however all down to the individual golfer and I am confident that serious golfers will be getting custom fit for their clubs and in particular drivers more often. This is a way that would help most golfers of all standards to see a measurable improvement in their game and with the invention of applications such as PING-Golf this is going to be more and more common place.

In summary I think that one of the biggest changes we will see in golf equipment in 2013 is going to come as a result of “custom” fitting becoming a cheaper and more readily available, this will help people to find clubs that suit them and in turn improve their game.
