By adjusting to the nuances of your swing—and exploiting the laws of physics—these three new drivers promise to help you hit the ball farther and straighter. The $500 TaylorMade R9 (www.taylormadegolf.com) allows you to change the face angle, loft, and lie of the club head. Eight head positions times three weight combinations equals 24 options—and a fix for just about any bad drive. With a titanium face, magnesium crown, and steel sole, the $400 Tour Edge Exotics XCG-V (www.exoticsgolf.com) carries most of its weight around the head and below the ball, a combination that helps increase ball speed while decreasing spin. The hyperbolic face shape and weighted rear of the $500 Callaway FT-iQ (www.callawaygolf.com) are also designed to maximize impact and—like the Tour Edge and TaylorMade clubs—minimize your scores.
