I started this year without a driver and was happy with my 3W distance when I hit it well, 240-250. After comments from friends I decided to buy a driver, used SLDR from the Silk Road. Well it has been a rocky summer for me and the driver. I have absolutely crushed some drives, verging on 300, but also lost so many balls with high “fades” and duck hooks that I don’t hit it unless both sides of the hole are playable, ie parkland courses.
My go to is my 4h and 3W which both can find the fairway 50% of the time, per Grint.
So, to the more educated here is it worth putting in the effort to get the extra 40 yards with a Driver or spend that time working on other parts of my game?
I am a 19 and struggle with iron control and I think that just hitting the 3W from now on and concentrating on 150 yard shots would be a bigger benefit to my game.
