What’s inside a Golf Driver Head?


– Welcome back to “What’s Inside?”. I’m Dan, and this is Lincoln. And we’ve been thinking about
what we can cut open next, and we decided, you know,
we’ve got these drivers laying around from our
favorite sport, which is golf. I have this TaylorMade
Burner, white hot driver, and – I have a Tour Series Uskids golf club. – So we figured, let’s
cut this thing in half and see what’s inside
of a golf driver head. But before we do that, let’s
give it one last hit. Alright? – Let’s do this. (clubs hitting golf balls) – [Dan] Oh, that’s pretty. Oh my gosh.
– [Lincoln] I crushed it. – [Dan] Why am I getting
rid of this driver? Wow, that ball went a lot further than I remember it going with that driver. So, but, at the same
time, because of science, we need to cut this driver open. So we’re gonna start with mine
and then we’ll do Lincoln’s. – We’re in our back yard,
where I practice my golf and it’s really fun. – Yeah, this is our putting
green in our back yard. So what better place than a putting green to cut open a golf driver? So, let’s get this thing going and see if it works with this blade. (power saw runs) – [Dan] Alright, let’s stop that. It’s gonna look cool, though. It’s gonna make some cool sparks. (power saw runs) – [Dan] Aha, that is cool! See all those sparks? That’s awesome. We are almost there. This golf head, when it was made in 2011, was considered the biggest
driver head in all of golf. It has an extra inch long of a shaft so that you can hit it further. So, if it wouldn’t have been so big, it might’ve been a little
easier to cut that part open. But let’s see if we can figure out a way to get this face cut open. (power saw runs) – [Dan] Woo! That was awesome. That was awesome. (laughs) Ah man, look at that! Look at the cut I did on it. My lines were a little off. It’s just kinda hanging on. (power saw runs) – [Dan] Alright, please say
that we got it this time. Are you kidding me? I keep missing. We should just clip it right there. That is cool, though. – [Voiceover] Can you just pull it off? – [Dan] Take a look at it. It’s hollow inside. – [Voiceover] I didn’t think
it was gonna be hollow. – [Dan] I didn’t think it
was gonna be hollow, either. That is neat. Alright, let me just see
if I can break it here. (metal snaps) Ta da! (laughs)
– [Lincoln] Yay! – [Dan] All that cutting and
all I had to do was pull it. So Lincoln, take a look at that. – It’s hot. – It’s a little hot. There’s the driver. You wonder why drivers are so light, even though they have this big head? Well they’re completely hollow inside. Just hollow. And the face isn’t even that thick. The face is that metal right there. It’s not even that thick. I’m trying to see if
there’s any weights inside. There’s really not many weights inside. Sometimes you think,
with the newer drivers, they put extra weights in the back so that you can get a higher shot and then less spin on it. But this one doesn’t really
have the weights on it. – It’s cool. – What do you think about that, Lincoln? – I thought it would be, like… solid inside. – Yeah. – [Dan] Almost there, I just… It doesn’t want to do a clean cut. (power saw runs) Woo! We finally cut it with the saw. Alright. It’s pretty hot. Here you go. Hold onto that? – [Lincoln] Is it hot? – No, it’s fine. It’s fine. – Whoa, I love the inside of these ones. It’s like rainbow. – [Dan] Show the camera. – [Lincoln] It’s like,
rainbow inside of it. It’s cool. – [Dan] So again, another hollow one. This one also is made out of titanium. So, yeah. It melted a little
bit as we’re cutting it. That’s what this part is, right here. It melted on the saw and
made it look different, so, little glue right there,
it’s like some putty. Don’t really know why that’s there. There’s the end of the shaft. You can see the shaft
going into the driver head. – [Lincoln] That’s cool. – [Dan] So there you go. This
is a Uskids Tour Series club. This is the best driver you
can buy with Uskids golf. It’s a great organization. They make clubs based off of the shaft on how tall a kid is. Lincoln’s outgrown this and
we couldn’t find a place to buy it back, so might
as well cut it open, so you can see what’s inside. Hope you enjoyed this video. This was a fun one to cut open. A little dangerous, but
we survived another video. So again, don’t try what we do at home, but we do it so you don’t have to. Hope you enjoyed this video and let us know if you’d like
us to cut anything else open.

  1. you should do it again with the new drivers with all of the adjustable weights try the big bertha epic because of the new jailbreak technology thing with the 2 rods in the inside

  2. Oh crap..well there you go. That explains my 20 handicap. I told all my friends I bet I got shafted (ha) by Callaway and the driver I tested was solid and the one they sold me was hollow. Thanks to you I will commence a lawsuit.

  3. I thought it was funny how Lincoln was making like faces when the sparks started flying and then he like ran away and how didn't you guys now they were holy

  4. Actually, here's what you, the viewer can do, instead of watching these people waste money. Go on google, type in "What's inside a golf driver?", click enter, and BOOM?!

  5. I know something else that is probably hollow! His head! Really. You didn't think it would be hollow

  6. So many unfortunate children that do not have an opportunity to play any sport and that my friends is how people with MONEY to burn think about just themselves. And teach the new Generation not to care either. Maybe Google what a driver looks like inside.

  7. What I really would like to know is, what's inside his head. He should not be allowed to operate power tools.

  8. well done guy's, not many golfers would have the heart in what you guy's just did, many thanks for the insights!

  9. Wow. That was awesome. It's just hollow inside. Awesome. Maybe that's why it goes "bink" when you hit it. Awesome. Hey, how about getting some foam to shove over your noisy microphone. That would be awesome.

  10. What a waste of an awesome driver! You could’ve called and asked me. They are all hollow news flash!! It’s what’s on the outside that counts

  11. Aww. I thought it atleast would be filled with the failed hopes and dreams of people who thought they needed anything more than a 150$ driver.

  12. I'm wondering why someone who looks like they play quite regularly wants to know what's inside? It's hollow as can be.

  13. wtf did I just watch… such a nice driver and he “didn’t think it would be hollow”??!! also teaching your kid the sketchiest way to use that saw… -.-

  14. cut open an older metal wood like those TalyorMade Burner originals <Tour Preferred> are they hollow or are they filled with foam?

  15. I actually had a feeling that the driver head was hollow based on the sound it makes when it strikes a golf ball. Now that I think about it, making the driver head hollow would give it some elasticity, allowing it to act like a spring to help put some distance into your shot.

  16. If is wasn’t hollow, do you know how heavy and expensive that would be? Did you seriously expect it to be solid?
