Before we get into our list of drivers for women golfers, you might be wondering why women need a different driver than men. Isn’t that sexist?

Two things make that response a negative. For one, there is nothing stopping any woman from playing any driver she likes. If that happens to be one marketed for men, so be it. And second, there are physiological differences between men and women that affect the golf swing.

No one should expect that these general differences apply to every female golfer. But women often have greater flexibility than men, creating longer swings. Women also usually have less muscle mass, meaning less club-head speed.

Golf-club manufacturers make adjustments to their clubs to meet the specific needs of women, just as they do for senior men, juniors, and beginners.

By all means, don’t feel constrained to choose from women’s drivers, but if you do, here are some choices that might be right for you.

Callaway Rogue

Callaway Golf 2018 Women's Rogue Driver, Right Hand, Quaranta, 40G Shaft, Ladies Flex, 13.5 degrees

Callaway makes great drivers and this one aimed at female golfers shares much of the same technology as the men’s Rogue drivers.

For example, the Rogue has the Jailbreak Effect, Callaway’s method for creating more club-head speed. Also included is a Triaxial Carbon Crown that is both lightweight and strong. That makes for a low moment of inertia and great forgiveness for off-center hits.

What are the differences from the men’s Rogue driver? Mainly two things.

One, this driver includes a ladies flex shaft that is not nearly as stiff. Two, the driver has a loft of 13.5 degrees that provides greater ability to get the ball airborne with slower swing speeds.

Pros

  • Superior construction
  • Easy to hit
  • High MOI

Cons

  • The price may scare some golfers

TaylorMade M2

TaylorMade Golf M2 Driver Womens 12.0 Loft Right Hand Ladies Flex

Like Callaway, TaylorMade is an industry leader when it comes to drivers. So you will see more options from TaylorMade making the list.

As for its M2 offering, this is a driver that has the center of gravity moved far to the back and near the bottom of the club head. That makes it easy to hit for almost any swing speed.

TaylorMade also has included its geocoustic technology. That sounds fancy but all it means is that the shape of the club head allows for the great sound at impact that all golfers love to hear. Don’t underestimate the way golfers react to the sound of the ball hitting the club face. Get that wrong and it will hurt your confidence, and likely your score.

Like all drivers from TaylorMade, you can trust that the driver is made with high quality materials and construction techniques.

Pros

  • Low center of gravity
  • Features speed pocket for faster swing speeds
  • Consistent look and performance

Cons

  • Launches the ball high, which does not fit every golfer

Cobra F-Max Offset

Cobra Women's 2018 F-Max Offset Women's Driver Black-Raspberry, Right Hand, Graphite, 15, degrees, Ladies

This is a club that may not offer all the bells and whistles from premium drivers, but it still has good quality at a great price.

For women who struggle with a slice off the tee, the Cobra F-Max has an offset club face. While that isn’t for everyone, it can be a boon for slicers, at least until the swing flaw can be corrected.

The face is made with a titanium insert and is good at producing quality shots from off-center hits. The low center of gravity enhances this club’s forgiveness.

It has a high loft of 15 degrees, with very lightweight construction. If you struggle with a slow swing and slices off the tee, this driver could be the perfect fit for you.

Pros

  • Very forgiving with low center of gravity
  • Offset face helps avoid slices
  • Lightweight construction

Cons

  • Only a good fit for specific type golfer

TaylorMade RBZ

TaylorMade Women's RBZ Driver, Black, Right Hand, Ladies Flex, High Launch

Another fine driver from TaylorMade, and another driver that launches the ball high with low spin. This is a fantastic combination for maximum distance off the tee. Women golfers are no different from men in that greater distance is a popular goal. Thing is, that is usually a laudable goal, one the RBZ delivers.

Almost everything about this driver is designed for greater distance. TaylorMade’s speed pocket design element helps to that aim, as does its lightweight titanium core.

If distance is your main concern, this could be a great choice. Golfers who hit the ball long but struggle to keep the ball in play may not like this driver as much.

Pros

  • High launch angle with low spin
  • Lightweight construction
  • Striking matte finish

Cons

  • Added length sometimes means less forgiveness.

Cobra King F8

2018 Cobra King F8 Driver (Women's, Right Hand, Aldila NV 2KXV 50, Ladies Flex)

The King F8 from Cobra goes all out to make a forgiving driver that produces long and high drives.

First is a precision milled face that is ultra-thin for great bounce, propelling the ball at great speeds.

Second is an aerodynamically designed head that is designed to resist drag, producing a faster swing.

Third is a center of gravity that is moved far to the back of the club head, making this an exceptionally forgiving driver.

Pros

  • Very forgiving
  • Adjustable loft settings
  • Thin face produces high ball speed

Cons

  • Not best club for working the ball

Tour Edge Bazooka

Tour Edge Women's Bazooka 460 Black Driver (Right Hand, Graphite, 12 Degree)

This is a fine option for female golfers looking for a budget choice in drivers.

The Bazooka certainly is lacking in bells and whistles of some of its more pricey competitors, but it still has plenty to offer.

Weight has been added to the bottom and rear of the club face. The result is a very low center of gravity that makes the club easier to hit.

It also has a deep club face that is helpful for off-center hits.

The club, from its shaft to its head, is designed to be lightweight enough for almost any golfer to swing with authority.

Pros

  • Low center of gravity
  • Lightweight
  • Forgiving club head

Cons

  • Construction not highest quality

PGX Offset

PGX Offset Driver (Ladies, Right Hand, Graphite, Ladies Flex)

Another inexpensive choice for women’s drivers, this one is intended for beginners or other high handicappers who struggle with a slice.

The offset face makes it remarkably difficult to hit a slice.

It is far from perfect, as you might expect from a discount club. You are unlikely to get the performance you might expect from even modestly priced drivers.

Pros

  • Offset face
  • Lightweight shaft
  • Matte finish

Cons

  • Not highest quality
See On Amazon

TaylorMade M6 D-Type

TaylorMade Golf M6 Women's D-Type Driver, 12.0 Loft, Right Hand, Ladies Flex Shaft: TaylorMade Tuned Performance 45

Switching now from budget drivers to one of the pricier, and best-made, drivers for women.

TaylorMade has carved out quite a name for itself in the driver market, and this is another fine option.

The head of this club is injected with resin to create the perfect coefficient of resolution for fantastic club-head speed.

TaylorMade’s Twist Face technology enables the face of the club to correct off-center hits, resulting in fantastic forgiveness off the tee.

This driver also has a clever design feature that makes the face appear more open than it actually is. This has the effect of an offset driver, minus the offset.

The M6 D-Type is designed to be as fast as a driver can possibly be within the rules of golf.

Pros

  • Extremely fast club head speed
  • Forgiving
  • Great COR

Cons

  • Some may balk at the price

XXIO X Driver

XXIO 2018 Women X Driver 435cc RH 10.5 Graph Reg Lady New

XXIO says this driver is designed for the golfer with moderate swing speeds who wants greater distance.

It achieves this through what it calls True-Focus impact technology. That is a combination of a large sweet spot and lightweight shaft that allows for more center-cut impacts.

That combination is said to provide drives that are both long and straight.

Two other aspects of this driver make it somewhat different than typical women’s clubs.

First is a club head that is 435 cubic centimeters. Rarely will you see drivers that are smaller than the 460cc allowed by rule. Secondly is a loft of 10.5 degrees, which is very aggressive comparatively.

Pros

  • High quality construction
  • Delivers speedier ball flights
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Expensive price tag
See On Amazon

Cobra F9 Speedback

Cobra Golf 2019 F9 Speedback Driver, Black/Rose Gold, Right Hand, Ladies, 12.5 Degrees

Another quality club from Cobra, the F9 is said to be the longest off the tee of all its offerings.

Cobra’s Speedback technology combines aerodynamics and a low center of gravity to achieve its great length and club-head speed.

That is hardly its only selling point. Included is a CNC precision milled face and technology that helps eliminate the gear effect that hurts your drives on off-center hits.

Pros

  • Produces fast ball speeds
  • CNC milled face
  • Low center of gravity

Cons

  • Can be harder to control than other drivers
See On Amazon

As you can see, many drivers marketed to women typically offer similar technologies.

Loft

Most women’s drivers have a higher loft than their men’s counterparts. That higher loft helps get the ball airborne for swing speeds that are usually slower than that of men golfers.

Center of gravity

While loft is important to help get the ball in the air, it is not the only technology to aid in that goal.

A center of gravity that is low will also help. That is often achieved by moving weight to the back and bottom of the club head.

Shaft

Women’s shafts are more flexible than the standard for men’s clubs. This is another nod to the slower swing speeds for women. A more flexible shaft means the head is whipped through the hitting zone, producing more swing speed.

The shafts in women’s drivers are almost always graphite. This is typical for men’s drivers, as well.

Face

The face of today’s drivers is getting thinner. That helps with the spring effect that produces greater swing speed.

Many drivers feature an offset face that helps prevent slices.

Recommendations

There are a number of drivers from the above list that could be just what you are looking for. Many women are looking for greater swing speeds. TaylorMade’s drivers are fantastic at that.
