In the past few years we have seen driver head sizes increasing dramatically. The
\"theory\" is that if the clubhead is bigger then the club will be easier to hit.
Great theory - alas, there\'s only one problem with it. Anytime you increase the size
of something, in this case a clubhead, whenever you miss the sweetspot then there is
twisting - and any twisting cuts down on distance and control of the golf ball.

If you have a clubhead size that is four inches on either side of the middle, then
you will have up to four inches of twisting. But if you have two inches on either
side of the sweet spot, then there can only be up to two inches of twisting! This
reduces the amount of twisting and tightens up the shot dispersion - and that means
more distance and ball control.

Golf club manufacturers are finally realizing this and most are offering smaller
heads now.

I personally believe that in the next couple of years we will see driver heads under
the 400 cc size. In fact, Katsuhiro Miura, designer and owner of Muira Golf, has
done extensive testing and has found that any head size larger than 400 cc actually
produces shorter distances.

Miura, long known for his craftsmenship and quality, makes clubs for several PGA
Tour players under the brand name of their equipment sponsor and rumor has it that
there is a top-10 player in the world rankings that is one of those.
