The Aerojet is the standard model in the range with a key focus on the aerodynamics to create more speed throughout the air than predecessor the LTDx.
Cobra have worked hard on perfecting the shape of the club head with a raised skirt and streamlined edges reducing drag to generate the most speed of any driver.
The shaping, coupled with Cobra’s PWR-Bridge weighting being positions forward, generating impressive ball speeds off the face of the Aerojet drivers.
The LS model of the Aerojet driver range is the Low Spin option and the perfect option to cure a fade or slice.
The Aerojet Max driver is the draw-bias version of the series with weighting positioned towards the heel and back to create shot shaping.

2. Ping G430 Drivers
The Ping G430 are new for 2023 and have made a big impression with tour victories even before they hit the shelves for purchase by every day golfers.
The new G430s will have the Max, LST (Low Spin Technology) and SFT (Straight Flight Technology) versions of the drivers that also appeared in the G425 drivers series.
The Ping G430 Max is the standard driver from Ping and features a 25-gram tungsten movable weight and Dragonfly technology that redistributes weight within the head of the driver.
The G430 LST is the Low Spin Technology version and it now has a Carbon crown in a switch to a Carbonfly wrap. It has allowed Ping to save weight and lower the centre of gravity and add even more forgiveness.
The Straight Flight Technology (SFT) option is the draw-bias model, but now has a moveable 22g tungsten weight compared to the fixed one that appeared in the G425.

The Callaway Paradym drivers range are new for 2023 with three models in the series featuring a 360 degree carbon chassis for the first time.
The range features the Paradym, Paradym X and Paradym Triple Diamond drivers in a comprehensive list of options.
The Paradym driver is the standard model of the options and is designed to suit golfers of all abilities with the design producing a high launch and low spin ball flight for distance and forgiveness.
The Paradym X driver differs slightly from the standard model with this version having no front weight and no adjustable rear weight.
This model is described as the players’ driver with a high launch, high MOI and an extremely forgiving shape – all with a slight draw bias.
After the successful inclusion of the Triple Diamond model in the Rogue ST range, Callaway have also included one in the Paradym series too.
The Paradym Triple Diamond driver is slightly smaller than the other two models with a more compact 450cc club head.

They boast a new head shape, greater speed off the club face, more distance and the promise of “amazing forgiveness” compared to Titleist’s previous driver models.
The TSR2 driver is the high-launching, low spinning model of the trio. Titleist have built the TSR2, which replaces the TSi2, for maximum speed and distance and that’s what it delivers on.
The TSR3 is the players’ choice, with this driver all about precision and accuracy from the tee and aimed at golfers with a consistent impact location off the face.
The TSR4 driver is the smallest of the three models in terms of head shape with a refined 430cc clubhead in a more compact look. The driver is all about low spin and reducing excessive spin in your game.
The TSR1 was unveiled later in January 2023 with Titleist believing the have come up with the answer for slower swing speed golfers.

5. Taylormade Stealth 2 Drivers
The TaylorMade Stealth 2 driver is a new release for 2023 as an upgraded version of the best-selling Stealth series.
The Stealth, Stealth HD and Stealth Plus drivers provide more “fargiveness” with more distance and forgiveness.
The key change to the Stealth 2 is the new rear weight at the back of the driver head, which now has a heavy 25g tungsten weight positioned on the Inertia Generator to increase the forgiveness from the Stealth.
TaylorMade have continued with a HD version of the Stealth driver in the 2023 version with the High Draw model returning with some tweaks.
The HD driver is the draw-bias model, with TaylorMade moving more weight closer to the heel of the club head to help cure the dreaded slice or even out the fade.
The Stealth 2 Plus+ driver is the more adjustable of the options once again compared to the Stealth 2 and Stealth 2 HD models.
The rear sole weight was fixed in the Stealth Plus+. In the 2 model, the weight is a 15g tungsten weight and has been designed for more forgiveness.

7. Titleist TSi3 Driver
When it comes to clubs that have been around a while but are still top performers, the Titleist TSI3 is one that should be considered among the best golf drivers 2023 has to offer still.
What really sets the driver apart from others is the ATI 425 Aerospace Titanium face. The golf ball just seems to jump off the clubface with a huge sweet spot that allows golfers to hit shots off-center and still get a lot of distance.
The TSi3 features some degrees of adjustability with a movable weight, but the driver is more suited to those looking for distance and less so for forgives (the TSI2 is a great option for forgiveness).
What also sets the driver apart is its feel, as the aforementioned titanium face makes every shot feel like solid contact.

Which is the best golf drivers 2023?
The answer to this question depends on where the weaknesses in your driver game lie. If you are a golfer who is struggling to find the fairways, the Taylormade Stealth driver should be considered first, followed by the Rogue ST Max and Ping G430 Max.
Those looking for added distance should consider the LTDx driver by Cobra, as it provides fantastic distance with just enough forgiveness.
Perhaps you a looking for a driver that simply feels great every time you hit it, with the Titleist TSR or TSi3 being the go-to choice for feel.
Those who want the ability to adjust the driver as they see fit and with a touch of forgiveness as well cannot go wrong with the Ping G430s.
