I played my recently "WHD improved" Ping K-15 10.5* driver over the weekend and WOW...what a difference!
I normally play a Ping G-15, 12* driver but I wanted to try the new Ping K-15 because of the advertised improvements in "straightness" and "increased launch angle". When I first played the K-15 (before being shaved) I was not that impressed. Straighter, yes - but the launch angle didn't come to be what I was hoping for. All in all, the stock K-15 wasn't as good as the 12* I was hoping to replace.
But now, after the shaving to .880 COR, this K-15 is truly unbelievable. Straight, high and LONG-about 35 yards longer then when stock (and now straighter and longer than my G-15).
I've played 3 rounds, hit a couple of large bags of balls, and the club face looks the same as when I received it back from WHD. I absolutely love it. Best $100 I've spent on golf in a very long time!
Thanks for the improvement.

First, let me say that I am a professional club maker. You can imagine what my number one request is when it comes to a driver: How do I get more distance? Well if you are looking here you have found the real answer.
Let's be candid. All current drivers manufactured by the majors such as Callaway, Ping, Taylor Made, Adams, Titleist and others are required to conform to both thre USGA and the R&A standards of performance. Within those performance guidelines is the max COR of a driver which cannot exceed a factor of 830. Not to get technical here but COR is the spring effect of the clubs face. What this process incorporates is removing that restriction by remilling the face to create a greater spring effect to the face of your driver. A greater spring effect creates with the same swing tempo of your current driver a longer flighted ball.
I have heard all the HYPE for years on the newest driver and their distance claims. If all of it were true we would all be hitting 300 yard drives. Well it has not happened to me and I suspect it has not happened to you or you would not be looking at this now. It seems every month some manufacture has just created a new $400.00 driver that will cure all your ills. Funny, those $400.00 drivers a year later are now selling for $199.00 or less.
If you want to really increase your distance this process is your TRUE answer. I had one of mine just returned from WHD. I had my COR taken from an 830 on a Taylor Made Draw driver to an 880. All I can tell you is that I picked up 20 yards plus hitting range balls on a cold day in December. I can't wait to get out on the course with my Titleist balls and really see how much I have picked up in distance. I must also comment on WHD. I found the service to be top notch. The process was very well done. All my questions were answered promptly. My driver was returned to me in a matter of days and not weeks. In short this works and Steve anf his staff do an excellent job. I know the price might seem a little high but think of the alternatives. Take your current driver and have it shaved and pick-up another 20 or 30 yards or go ahead and buy another $400.00 dollar driver after you have fallen for all the HYPE and get the same results you had before.
One last note, I thought this process was so good and well performed that I am sending my second driver into WHD. I would not do that unless it worked and it does.

The 2 Taylor Made drivers you shaved for me are really excellent. The .890 COR is quite evident. I hit a drive right on the screws and my total yardage was 264 yards. It was a 471 par 5 and I was on in 2! That HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE!!
I think that older golfers like me (I'll be 63 next week) need all the help they can get. I'm in good shape, do stretching exercises, lift light weights, go to the range once a week, play once a week, etc. but my SS (swing speed) has dropped to high 80's to low 90's.
You cannot defy the laws of physics and the ball will only go so far with that impact.
So I do not conform to the USGA or other rules organization. I don't want any money or a trophy, I just want to enjoy myself and if driving the golf ball out there at 250 yards makes me happy, so be it.
Your service is truly genius! This is EXACTLY like Arnold Palmer's endorsement of the hot Calaway drivers. I remember his words " golf for the recreational golfer is SUPPOSED TO BE FUN".
Driver Shaving Information:
As you might know, all the golf drivers currently being produced by the top manufacturers like Taylormade, Ping, Callaway, Titleist and Nike are performance restricted since the USGA limits how hot a driver can hit. We can take any driver and make it surpass it's current level of performance through a process we call driver shaving. We use a CNC milling machine to modify the face-thickness of Titleist 910 D3 drivers (we can work with any brand of golf driver). This alteration has been shown to increase the distance of drives by 15, 25, 35, and even 40 yards!
The reason for this increase is simple. All club faces are designed to compress on impact with the ball, then spring back once it has reached it's peak compression. This springback is one of the determining factors in a club's COR (or Coefficient of Restitution), which is its transfer of energy. If the metal club face is allowed to compress more because of a thinner face thickness, will spring back at a higher rate, thereby increasing the COR and distance of your drives.
The USGA has a limit on COR ratings for drivers that are to be used in sanctioned events, like tours and tournaments (.830 COR is the current standard). For years, large companies such as TaylorMade and PING produced non-conforming clubs for recreational golfers that far exceeded the USGA’s limit. After facing pressure from the USGA, they ceased production of these clubs. When Titleist and the other manufacturers were still producing non conforming golf drivers they simply used a thinner clubface to give it that extra spring. This is the exact effect that we are producing by removing a percentage of the face thickness.
At World's Hottest Drivers, we sell preshaved drivers and also work on drivers that our customers currently own and send to us for performance enhancement. We can help players of any caliber, whether young or old and can custom shave the face thickness to match the swing speed of the player. We can easily maximize performance and still leave the club with excellent durability. For more information on our products and services please visit our website at worldshottestdrivers.com.
2011 Titleist 910 D3 golf driver COR ratings:
Once we have completed our work on the club the COR will be between .860 and .900. Normally, .880 would be our standard shaving level for most golfers as it will give a good blend of performance and durability. .890 may be acceptable for swing speeds under 100 MPH and .900 for swing speeds under 90 MPH. You can let us know your desired shaving level when you send us your golf club.
It would make sense that having a thinner club face can lessen the durability of the club, to some extent. However, we have not had many problems with clubs denting or breaking though, especially when customers stay within our suggested COR shaving levels based on their swing speed. In fact, to date, we have shaved well over 700 drivers and not had a single one dent or break when shaved to our recommended shaving level. We even had one customer with a swing speed of 110 MPH who wanted the maximum .900 shave and wasn't concerned about durability. His golf driver picked up an additional 35 yards of distance and the club dented after 2 months. He recently ordered another driver from us and is very satisfied.
Please read the following paragraph:
***The shaving process will remove the grooves from the face of the driver as you can see in the picture above. Since grooves do not affect performance on a driver some players opt to just leave the club as is. Others prefer the grooved look and we do offer to regroove the club for an additional $25. If you would like to have your driver regrooved you can simply add the $25 in on the checkout page.
You can reach us anytime by email through the ebay

90% of golfers will gain additional yardage by having their driver shaved. For various reasons 10% won't see major improvement. This can be either caused by inconsistencies in the club's original manufacturing process or because of the players type of swing. There are some players who just don't generate much of what's called a "smash factor" when striking the ball. Smash factor takes into account the amount of force generated by the clubhead right at the moment of impact. It is much more than just club head speed. It also takes into account factors like wrist snap, torque, club head angle of approach, club face angle etc. This is why you will see two players with identical swing speeds whose distance off the tee varies greatly. These differences will cause some players to pick up significant distance when having a driver shaved while others won't pick up much at all. This can usually be overcome by a second shaving if the performance increase isn't substantial after the initial shaving, as it indicates that the smash factor for the player will allow for a more aggressive shaving. We will reshave a club at no cost and cover the return shipping if you are not satisfied with its performance.
