The Golf Digest Hot List features an array of golfing equipment, specifically clubs. Drivers, irons, wedges and putters are just some of the golf clubs displayed in the Hot List. Each year of Golf Digest magazine features a similar selection of clubs.
The 2015 issue of Golf Digest has several drivers on display, including the Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815, Callaway Big Bertha V Series and Callaway XR/XR Pro models. The Alpha 815 is known for adjustability, and the weight can be adjusted quite seamlessly to intricately tweak the swing trajectory. The V Series model uses innovative techniques in aerodynamic engineering. The idea is that getting the ball to go farther requires making the driver go faster. This model also has softened crown curves to make the driver smoother through the air.
The XR/XR Pro model also features high-end aerodynamic engineering techniques. It has a staggered step on top of the head to reduce drag on the downswing. Two of the featured putters are the Bettinardi Kuchar Model and the Edel Signature E Series. The Kuchar Model is named after Matt Kuchar and is built for his unique arm-lock style with a wide-body blade. The E Series simplifies transitioning from back to forward swing.
