Best Golf Drivers For Women

The driver is the most satisfying club to pull out of the bag which makes picking one of the best drivers for you very important. But when it doesn’t perform well, you hate it with a passion. As technology continues to evolve, the current models give women a far better chance of hitting consistently good tee shots.  There are plenty on the market to choose from, but don’t allow yourself to get bogged down with the minefield of technical information. First and foremost, decide what you want to achieve off the tee. 

Is it greater accuracy, as you’re fed up hitting your second shot from the rough? Do you want to gain distance, frustrated at continually being outdriven? Or is it added forgiveness when you miss the sweet spot? Perhaps you want a little bit of everything? Bearing these questions in mind, we have tried to provide answers below by looking at some of the best golf drivers (opens in new tab) designed for women currently on the market. 

Additionally take a look at some of our other guides on drivers - the best golf drivers for distance (opens in new tab), best golf drivers for beginners (opens in new tab), or the most forgiving drivers (opens in new tab) on the market.

Extremely forgiving

Reasons to avoid

-
Lack of feminine colouring

The TaylorMade Stealth HD Women's Driver has very similar looks to that of the men's version, however the performance is no different, with this being one of the best performing drivers on the market.

Featuring a 60X Carbon Twist face, which refers to the 60 layers of carbon sheets that are carefully arranged for better energy transfer and faster ball speeds across a large area of the face, it is a fantastic performer that is also 44% lighter than its predecessor.

Along with the increase in distance and reduction of dispersion, the Stealth HD (opens in new tab) has a deep club face profile that allows for a large hitting area. This means forgiveness on off-centre strikes.

Unorthodox shape may put some off

The main aim of the Reva is to help women hit their tee shots further and find the fairway more often. To deliver longer drives and greater accuracy, Callaway has engineered a large clubhead with internal draw bias weighting.

By also incorporating Callaway (opens in new tab)’s Jailbreak technology, which helps to make the clubface more efficient, two internal bars stiffen the body of the Reva to allow the face to flex more, while the lightweight crown permits weight to be redistributed for higher MOI.

Thanks to the advanced design of the clubface, there’s a more expansive area to promote faster balls speeds, so women will still drive the ball a long way, even if they miss the centre of the face at impact. Given all of that, this was a no-brainer inclusion on the best golf drivers for women list.

The striking looks may not be to everyone's taste

This is the second generation of the women’s G Le range and, with custom-fitting being a core principle of the Ping (opens in new tab) brand, there are more fitting options in the latest edition to dial-in for an optimum fit. The driver features an adjustable, eight position hosel to alter the loft and there are three different settings for the lie of the club.

The light titanium clubhead with an aerodynamic shape is designed to promote faster clubhead speed, whilst the Internal heel-biased weighting helps with right-to-left spin for straighter ball flights.

The G Le 2 has a thin, forged face to increase flexing for ball velocity and improved launch conditions, whilst forgiveness is at the heart of this driver so players can achieve repeated results with every swing.

Draw bias won't be to everybody's taste

One of the best golf drivers (opens in new tab) in 2022, the Callaway Ladies Rogue ST Max Driver offers the companies highest MOI head with a slight draw bias. This means that it is built for all levels of golfers as it is combines distance and forgiveness.

Featuring Callaway's new Tungsten Speed Cartridge structure, it allows up to 26 grams to be placed low and deep in the driver head. As a result, this increases speed on off-centre hits and provides more forgiveness through high MOI. Along with the weights, we also see the company's Jailbreak Speed Frame, something that makes it one of the most forgiving drivers (opens in new tab) on the market.

Low spin and maximum forgiveness 
+
Eye catching looks

Large head design may not appeal to all

Cobra have always been one of the best at producing a premium performing driver that doesn't break the bank. With the King LTDx Max, this appears to be the case as it is the first driver to achieve zero CG and an even higher level of forgiveness.

An oversized 460cc clubhead will also provide confidence at address, with Cobra's PWR-COR and H.O.T Face technology meaning and increase of distance off the tee. Combine that with a lightweight titanium chassis and the LTDx Max is a superb performer that will make a great addition to your bag.

Super stylish looks
+
Can be used easily off the deck

Reasons to avoid

Reflects sun glare easily

Adding the Kalea 3 driver to your bag is like having a 2 wood from days gone by. This handy advantage is down to a low centre of gravity and TaylorMade's very clever Speed Pocket which sees more flexibility in the lower part of the club face. Because of the added flexibility, it helps to pop the ball up quicker from off the tee and the ground, this ensures the ball carries further.

The value for money is also very appealing, with the Kalea 3's definitely some of the best women's golf clubs (opens in new tab) out on the market. What's more, you can own matching clubs all the way through from the driver to your putter.

Best Golf Drivers For Women Yonex Ezone GS Women's Driver

Yonex Ezone GS Women’s Driver

Specifications

Lofts: 12° or 14° adjustable

Reasons to buy

+
Premium looks and wide-ranging adjustability

Solid, powerful feel off the face

Not the easiest to align

Yonex has packed the Ezone GS driver with new technology to encourage higher launch, faster ball speed and less sidespin for greater distance. 

Featuring Power Groove Sole technology, which allows the clubface to flex inwards at the point of impact, it is also combined with the structure of the crown, therefore offering more flex at the top of the clubface which means an enlarged sweetspot. 

The clubhead also has a lower centre of gravity and this reduces clubhead weight by 20% so women can make an effortless swing.

Breaking with tradition, instead of a horizontal polish, the Ezone GS adopts a vertical polish to make it easier to move the ball in an upward direction. As a result, sidespin is minimised, so helps to improve accuracy for a straighter ball flight.

Great value for money

Reasons to avoid

Lacks adjustability

The Launch Pad is designed to resolve the dreaded slice, with an inherent draw bias and moderate hosel offset, combined with 13 grams of weight in the heel side of the club, meaning your tee shots should fly straighter and more accurately. 

Another noticeable aspect of the Launch Pad is how lightweight it is, with the driver head, shaft and grip weighing just 272g. By being so light, it means you can generate more club speed and therefore more height at impact.

Looks won't be to everybody's tastes

Designed for those with moderate swing speeds, the TSi 1 is made up of an ultra-lightweight configuration which maximises distance. Along with the configuration, it also has a deep, face-centred CG for increased launch and exceptional ball speed.

Ranked as one of the best Titleist drivers (opens in new tab), the TSi1 is almost 40g lighter than standard drivers and has a reshaped head, this means that the CG is closer to the centre of the face and allows for added forgiveness.  

How we test the best drivers

When it comes to product testing, our reviews and buyers' guides are built upon a rigorous testing procedure as well as the knowledge and experience of the test team. 

Getting into specifics for drivers, we first attend product launches and speak to manufacturer's to understand the technology. We then hit the golf clubs indoors, usually at Foresight Sports and test the products with premium golf balls on a launch monitor.

Outdoor testing is the next port of call and this usually takes place at West Hill Golf Club, a course in Surrey with top-notch practice facilities. Ultimately, we aim to be as insightful and honest as possible in our reviews so it is important to acknowledge that no manufacturer can buy a good review. This is because our team tells it how it is. We want to try and find the best golf clubs (opens in new tab) on the market and give you some insight on them, which requires being thorough and transparent. To find out more on how Golf Monthly tests products (opens in new tab), click here.

What to consider when buying a golf driver

You've probably already asked yourself whether you need to buy a new driver in 2022 (opens in new tab), but there's a few key things to consider when investing in a new driver. Hopefully answering these questions will narrow your search down slightly and make comparing between various models much easier. 

When purchasing a new big stick, it is crucial to ask yourself just what you need from it. Is distance your main priority or are you looking for something to help you find more fairways? We'd always recommend a custom fitting with a PGA Pro but if you know what you're looking for you can make an informed decision. 

If accuracy is what you're after, go for something with a high MOI or adjustable weights to help alter spin and flight characteristics. If distance is key to you, look at a low-spinning driver to help ensure your ball doesn't balloon too much. If you're after something in the middle, the so-called 'standard' heads in most driver ranges will suit you the best.
