Note: If you haven't read the general description of our telescopic shafts and clubs here, it is an important foundation for the following information.
We provide telescopic shafts for any driver heads...yours, ours, or from any number of foundry sources. A modern driver head with our telescopic shaft is about 45" long (114cm), depending on the head since club-length includes the head all the way to the bottom of the heel.
Your choice depends on your purpose. Do you ONLY want to get maximum drives off the tee? Or do you want a head that will bomb it off the tee AND be great for long fairway and rough shots too?
Modern large-size driver heads are designed for maximum distance off the tee. The center of gravity is too high to be used off the fairway with any consistency. If maximum distance off the tee is your only goal, a driver head is what you want. Of course, you are not limited to just one "long" club. You can get a telescopic driver dedicated for driving, and then a telescopic 3-wood and/or a 3-iron hybrid for your long fairway shots. It all boils down to how many clubs you want to carry.
When I travel and am not sure if I'll be able to play golf, I only take my Whole-In-One Adjustable. If I'm sure I'll get to play once or twice, I'll also take my telescopic T&F Driver and putter. If it is a dedicated golf trip, I'll add my telescopic 3-iron hybrid and 56-degree sand wedge. They all fit in my roller duffel bag like the one shown here and I NEVER pay extra for checking a golf bag!
If you want to be able to hit it off the tee AND fairway, we recommend our Tee and Fairway (T&F) Driver. This is our most popular driver option. It is essentially a "3-wood on a driver-length shaft," or as some of our customers refer to it, "A 3-wood on steroids!" The goal of this club is to give you portability (collapses to just 26 inches (66cm), but greater distance off the tee and longer second shots than the Whole-In-One Adjustable can produce with its shorter shaft length. The standard extended length of the T&F Driver is 44" (111.75cm) while the Adjustable is only 38.5" (97.8cm). So the T&F Driver generates a lot more club-head speed.
- 15 degrees of loft, 210 grams, 165 cc volume/size
- Extends to 44 inches playing length as measured from the heel to the end of the grip (109.33 or 111.76cm) **
- Precision cast high strength stainless steel
**We can make the T&F Driver shorter if you prefer for an additional $20 custom-cut fee. For every extended inch shorter, it collapses to 1/2" shorter. You can choose the length when you place your order.
When you want to travel with it, you will want to use a suit case that can accommodate the collapsed GREEN length shown below. All other of our telescopic clubs such as the Whole-In-One Adjustable, hybrids, wedges, and traditional length putters collapse to a shorter length so they will easily fit in any case that accommodates the TF Driver. (The exception to that is our chest putters and giant Big Stiks which collapse, but not as short.) When you measure your suit case, remember that you can fit the collapsed driver from a lower corner to an opposite upper corner which maximizes the available space. You can then fit your clothes around the shaft. If your suitcase is too small, you can get "roller-duffels" that will easily hold your clubs and clothes with room to spare. They are not expensive...shown here.
Flex and Feel
A 44 inch telescopic driver shaft with a 3-wood is fairly flexible because a 3-wood head is heavier than a driver head. We can make it stiffer by cutting length off the tip, but that also reduces the potential club head speed. Also, the telescopic carbon steel shaft is heavier than a graphite shaft. So a telescopic driver, no matter which head you choose, doesn’t feel the same as a graphite-shafted driver. It is heavier. Unfortunately, we can’t make graphite shafts telescopic because their wall-thickness is too great.
Given those considerations, most of our customers don't think of a telescopic driver as trying to perfectly match the feel and performance of their graphite shafted driver. At the same time, some of our customers that they hit it about as well as their expensive modern titanium-graphite name brand drivers. It is a matter of matching the swing to the club.
"I can't believe how well I hit your TF Driver off the tee and fairway. It is a little heavier than my Callaway driver, but it just works for me. I bought it to take on trips, but now I have it in my bag and find myself using it off the tee more than my driver because I hit it just as far and it is more consistent. Now what am I supposed to do with my expensive driver?"

Alternate Driver Heads
We also offer some alternate heads for a small upgrade price described in the Ordering section below, or you can send us a head to install on our telescopic shaft as described here. We don't encourage this for a couple of logical reasons. Some customers think that if they send us their name-brand head, it will hit and feel the same as it does on their graphite shaft. But most customers aren't necessarily getting a telescopic driver to "replace" their current modern driver. They just want to get maximum distance and control off the tee with a telescopic club when they travel. They will still use their name-brand driver for tournaments and use on home courses.
We can also install our Giant Double-Size BIG STIK head, or a couple other "illegally large" heads described below.* While they are not legal for tournament play, the telescopic shaft itself is already "non-conforming". So having an oversized head is usually purchased for the fun of it...plus the fact that these heads have larger sweet spots. They can really smash long drives. But remember, they cannot be used off the fairway or other tight lies because their center of gravity is too high.
If we don't have the head style you want in stock, we can fit our telescopic shaft to any head style you want. Just let us know what you are looking for and we'll find it for you.
“I thought I would only use my TF Driver when I traveled. But for some reason, I drive farther with this club than my $400 fancy weight-and-loft-adjustable TaylorMade. How is that possible? And I can smoke it off the fairway and out of the rough. You’ve got a winner here. You should promote it as a driver in competition with the big brands. It’s just an amazing bonus that it collapses and fits into my luggage with my telescopic adjustable and putter.” Jerry Dillon, Minneapolis MN
Note from Steve Divnick: While we receive a lot of compliments like this, not everyone will hit farther than their expensive graphite-shafted driver. But for the average golfer who struggles to get high arcing
shots off the tee, this “3-Wood on steroids” will give you consistent distance that is hard to achieve with lower-lofted drivers. For those who are good off the tee, even scratch players, you will love how you can still
reach par-5’s in 2 strokes with our telescopic TF Driver. I personally guarantee your satisfaction or your money back.
October Special 3-Club Set Discount
Order ANY 3 or more clubs and get an additional 10% Discount!
Most Popular 3-Club-Set
While the "Whole-In-One Divnick Adjustable Club" can play the whole game, it is most like an iron. As a 4-iron length, it can't generate as much club-head speed as a driver. And it is the most unlike a putter in terms of length, shape, weight, and feel. So most people who get additional telescopic clubs get our "Tee & Fairway" Driver, and a Telescopic-Putter to go with their Adjustable. With these 3 clubs, you can bomb it off the tee and hit long fairway shots with the TF Driver, replicate all your irons and wedges with the Adjustable, and putt with a normal length and feel with a Telescopic Putter...and they all fit into a checked roller bag so you don't have to pay all that money to the airlines to check a full golf bag! Remember, "Our Clubs Fly Free!"
If you place your order in October for the Adjustable, TF Driver, and Putter (or any 3 clubs) we will give you an additional 10% discount on the total product cost. That's in ADDITION to the individual October discounts which are significant. This discount will also apply to a Sunday Bag, and any other additional clubs you order at the same time.
Most of our sales are a result of satisfied customers telling their friends and demonstrating it on the course (it's a great way to pay for your green's fees!). For every new golf club customer that you refer to us during the first year, we will send you a $25 rebate! It is our way of saying thank you for spreading the word. Just ask them to type your name in the Comment Box when they place their order.

- Right Handed "It Takes Two" 400cc 15 degree heads are +$25. These heads were originally designed for a major company promotion titled, "It Takes Two." You can apply your own golf meaning to that name...maybe, "It takes two shots to reach the green!"

- Giant BIG STIK's are an additional $100. These are the illegally-large heads we put on the World's Longest & Largest Drivers.
Head Cover (+$10): The T&F Driver head is a beautiful painted head. So most customers want to cover it to protect it so other clubs don't bang into it as they are pulled and returned into the bag. Some want to use their own head-cover, so we don't automatically include one. When you place your secure order, you will have the option of adding a DivnickGolf branded red and black sock-style padded faux leather cover that is normally $20, but available with the club for $10.
