Most popular Driver at your home course

joljol Members Posts: 1,322 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

I’m curious which of the new 2019 drivers seems to be the most popular at your home course(s)? I currently am gaming a Cobra F9 and I think I maybe the only one at the club doing so. The two most popular new drivers have been the Callaway Epic Flash and the TM 5/6. Not to imply that I actually took a survey or counted them, just what I have casually observed.

    Not a 2019 model but the Taylormade M4 is seen in, honestly, a good 30% or more of the bags you'll see at my club on a given weekend morning. It probably peaked closer to 50% a year or so ago, it was spooky. And if you included the previous model M2 it probably was fully half the bags.

    Last year, was a big year for Ping G400’s. Not too many G410’s this year, but that maybe because of the relative newness of the G400 in their bags.

    From what I've observed - Callaway Epic Flash by a fair margin in my area. To the OP, I'm also the only I've seen gaming a Cobra F9 this year.

    G400's by a long shot. My entire regular 4 some games the same driver.

    Observed, or heard? If your driving range sounds more like a batting cage, then you can bet some Epic Flash's are out there.

    From the new drivers, Callaway Epic Flash by far. If we include prior models, Ping G400 is everywhere as well.

    I don’t play at a club but around these parts on public courses I still see more “white” TM drivers (usually The OG RBZ or R11) than any other being played.

    Surprisingly none of my regular playing partners game a 2019 driver. M3/M4 are the newest but a lot of 913/917, G Series, G30 and Rogue. We may have finally stopped seeing the hype...

    Within the group of folks I play with regularly - a pool of about 10 or so - literally everyone has some model of Taylormade; mostly M5s. Clearly they're not cool enough for Titleist.

  • mikedejongmikedejong Members Posts: 644 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Vast majority of the guys I play with either have Taylormade (M1 through M6), or Ping (G30 through 410). The odd Titleist is sprinkled in as well, but mostly TM and Ping at my course.

  • NailedItNailedIt Members Posts: 76 ✭✭✭

    I play public courses and most I see are Rogues and some version of all white or white/black TM. Older 913/915/917 titleist and Ping G and G30. Being that I live in a part of the country that only gets to golf 6 months if we’re lucky and most people probably 3-4 months, I just don’t see a lot of people buying the latest and greatest. Iron sets are even worse.

    I dont play at a club but do play once a week in a traveling league. Usually about 30 guys. One guys has a TS3 and Epic flash. Other than that no one has a driver newer than 3 or 4 years old. Seems the seniors I golf with dont change clubs all that often.

    Mostly TM M series and stock shafts. I hardly see any exotic shafts or even upgrades out on the course. A few guys I know have Titleist T series and Ping G400/410's.

  • jg1166jg1166 Members Posts: 357 ✭✭✭✭

    Mostly Epic Flash or TM M eries, and interestingly I appear to be the only one Playing Mizuno ST190

    I see a lot of the TM models with the silver and gray lines that replaced M1/M2 white . Imo they look worse and offer nothing in terms of enhanced performance

    Close either ping or epic. Go back and include say four year old clubs I think ping by a good margin.

    Callaway Mack daddy 4 60°
    Ping anser 4 is in rotation at the moment, tp mills is resting as are the Cleveland, 8813, tess, kushin, bullseye, and the ugliest putter I own the Octagon.

    Epic Flash seems to be everywhere at my club with M6 in second.

  • shinobishinobi Members Posts: 10 ✭✭

    mostly Callaway Rogues here at the public course in LA...

  • gleunggleung Members Posts: 75 ✭✭✭

    Mostly TaylorMade, newer generation M1, M2, M3, M4, M5, M6

  • Radeon962Radeon962 ClubWRX Posts: 2,001 ClubWRX

    Used to be everyone had the M2 now it's Epic Flash. I have seen some ridiculously long drives from some friends who took the time and actually got fit into the Flash. Probably a lot of the reason why they are significantly longer is a proper fit

  • DelPonchoDelPoncho Members Posts: 19 ✭✭

    Work at a 100 restort, lots of the major oem. Mainly taylormade or ping

  • DE-ILLINIDE-ILLINI Members Posts: 352 ✭✭✭✭

    I play in an evening nine hole league at my home course and TaylorMade drivers are by far the most popular. Mainly M1/2 but the newer models are slowly taking over.

    Driver: Taylormade M3
    3W: Ping G400
    3H & 4H: Cobra Baffler
    5 - SW: Ping G25

    I play both public and private courses, I see a good mix of Taylormade, Callaway, Titleist, Ping and Cobra from past 5 or 6 seasons. Nothing really sticks out to me.

    titleist drivers for the most part, followed by ping. Have only seen a few people with the epic flash

    I don't pay attention to other people's clubs, I really don't care what others are playing
