Williams Racing has unveiled its new Players Series driver, which utilises Formula One aerodynamics.

Williams, known for propelling Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill to Formula One championships, believes the attribute of adjusting clubfaces to maximise the rebound effect is the “next biggest innovation” in drivers.

Driver heads have ballooned to 460cc in the last decade, and Williams believes it can use its knowledge of racing car aerodynamics to transport the clubhead through the air in a novel fashion. 

Trip

- redirects airflow over the crown of the driver to minimize the surface area of the crown that is affected by airflow contact, which is important in the reduction of drag.

Winglets

- manage and control the air flowing around the heal and toe section of the driver, creating a more consistent and stable path throughout the downswing and impact.

Diffuser

- a key component in diffusing and controlling the air that flows across the soleplate of the driver, combining with the effectiveness of the “Trip”, to minimise the wake and density of airflow off the rear of the driver creating a reduction in drag.

Lofts: 7.5, 9, 10.5, 12
Head volume: 440 cc
Shaft: Fujikura
