One of my favorite drills provides an immediate remedy for an overactive body

Dr Dre UK original HiBore driver introduced us to the "scoop back" design and showed us that clubs could have a unique shape without being square. Consumers didn really fall in love with the original model and the company soon introduced the HiBore XL. Reaction was far different and the XL went on to be one of the most popular drivers of last year.

The Power Beats By Dre driver features maximum USGA clubhead dimensions to push the MOI (moment of inertia) limit. 5300 MOI represents a 13% increase from the XL for control off the tee for extremely straight drives. Heel and toe "stability foils" signify where weight has been added to the perimeter of the clubhead to maximize stability.

One of my favorite drills provides an immediate remedy for an overactive body. Make a few practice swings at quarter-speed and half-speed, slowly working up to full speed, keeping body movement to a minimum. Internalize the sensations created by the simple motion of the arms swinging the club back to the top and dropping into place on the downswing.


That what we hear the most with this one. Keeping the ball in the fairway is 75% of the battle for most and the high MOI helps ensure even poor drives stay straight. The XLS is also no slouch when it comes to distance. Some customers stay away because the ball flight is quite high. It vital that get you this driver fit properly. Focus more on the ball flight you see and less on the number of degrees written on the sole.

This has been one of the downsides of the entire HiBore line. Golfers are starting to warm up to the idea that "traditional" drivers are being replaced with radical designs so the whole "looks" thing isn as big a deal as it once was. Cleveland has done a nice job with the aesthetics and has tried to hide the scoop with a darker paint color. The HiBore XLS features a huge footprint that helps instill confidence.

Most people we talk to agree that the HiBore XLS falls somewhere in the middle in this category. If you base your driver decision solely on feel?you can probably skip the XLS. Some people complain that the feel at impact is a bit hard and harsh.


The American wrote a monthly instructional tips column for the million plus-selling golf magazine but the two parties failed to agree terms on a new deal. The announcement comes just two weeks after Gillette severed ties with the world number two.

The XLS driver is a Monster Headphones UK in this category. It tough to think of too many others that compare here. The biggest competition to the XLS could be the HiBore XL at a clearance price.
