Purchasing a New Driver
Origins of the Driver
Drivers have come a long way since the first, hand-carved wooden stick (also known as the golf club) was invented in Scotland in the 1400’s. These sticks were used to play a game that everyone now knows as golf (whether the Scotts adopted the game from the Dutch, Chinese or other cultures has been an on-going debate for years). Drivers were originally known as “long noses.” Today, drivers are part of a family of clubs referred to as “woods”, and are designed for long-distance shots off the tee to achieve maximum results on the course.
