ON THE NUMBER

Driving the Green

Pros will tell you it's all about the flat stick, but for most average Joes, the driver rules because crushing one off the tee makes up for a lot of missed putts. That's why driver sales are a steady part of the golf business. But industry data suggest that while players are willing to pay for the latest technology, they don't necessarily assume the highest-priced club is best or that a bargain indicates inferiority. It's all about how you hit it.
