I think drivers are finally “topped out”.
I’ve hit every new driver that’s been made for the past 10+ years. I have witnessed some leaps in performance through the years, but I’d say since around 2017 we have been “officially” topped out. A lot of drivers now have a combination of optimized ball speed, aerodynamics, low spin, sound, looks, and forgiveness, whereas you used to have to sacrifice something. My Ping G400 outperformed or matched every 2018-2020 offering that has been released, but it seemed like before 2017 you could always find a small improvement here or there every year. The drivers this year are all great but it seems like they’re all so good that they can’t get much better since everything is already optimized, not to mention the new distance report which will ensure they don’t get any longer. Thoughts? Or did you all gain 17 yards this year just like last year?
