Stupid driver I hate you!


Recommended Posts

I am so inconsistent with driver that I am ready to switch exclusively to the 3 wood which finds the fairway at a much higher percentage.

Anybody completely switch to using a 3 wood exclusively?

I feel like the driver is usually the root of my high scores, because it puts me in a bad situation immediately.

So who is using 3 wood only, and how were your scores impacted after doing this?

I will always hate my driver but it’s like that sexy waitress you’ll never have a shot at. You keep going back. I’ll hit a banana slice one time then I’ll pull the next one, but that one straight bomb down the middle every once in a while keeps me going back. Honestly, I spent the whole winter rebuilding my entire swing at the range and I’m happy to say that I only despise my driver now. Hate might be too strong of a word. My advice, never give in to it. Beat it into submission before giving up.

I feel like I am really trying to manipulate the clubface (to square it) with the driver.

 

I like to tee my driver a hair higher than most people so I can get it on ascending angle.

I was wondering if hitting up on the driver also OPENs the face and I try to manipulate to close it.

Anybody think there may be any merit to this theory?

That's what I was wondering.

I guess I can try swing more level and see if that makes a difference.

My misses are low flighted drawing /hooking shots to left side of the fairway when I am off.

But then occasionally I can also have the big high block... lol ..

But most of the time my misses end up on the left side of the fairway.

Well if you figure it out let me know because I have the same miss. I’ve been playing with ball position mostly but need more time to practice.

I thought this was likely as well so I moved position back to hopefully get a more level strike. For reference I used to have ball between left ankle and instep and have moved back to left heel and ball inside left heel. Seems to have less curve idk.
