Most golf courses in Japan are forest courses surrounded by trees. Although the driver shot is required to hit longer distance, what is required more than that is to “carry the ball to the target spot. There are many times when obstacles are stymied at the second shot spot, or when s flatter and easier place to hit the ball is in sight, even if a little distance remains. That is why the driver is required to carry the ball “farther and to the target position. MINERVA's Distance & Control Design focuses on control performance while maintaining the distance performance required by premium Japanese golf club manufacturers.
