I did it Friday morning on a links style course. Completely unintentional. I was on the tee at 11, they were on the tee at 10, wasn't having a good day so far and the tension caused me to tighten up and toe the @#$!% out of my driver and I landed on the tee back of 10. I never even saw where the ball went, hit a provisional, and when I was headed to it after searching the right fairway/rough for my initial shot the guys pulling off the tee on 10 called to me that mine...
At least someone gave this guy some sound and helpful advice instead of a bunch of bitter complaints and gripes towards a guy who's obviously got some skill and is on his way but needs a bit of advice from some people who may have been in a similar situation before.    He's new, he has no idea who's on this site and whether people can give him helpful advice or not. 
Hahahaha, I love it. It's a commentary of at 1 out of every 3 of my drives. 
Agreed, I have a longer hybrid in my bag right now that's very hit and miss. It's a 200 yard club when it's right, it's a 20 yard club when it's wrong and lately it's been wrong more than it's been right. I used to have a set of TM burner hybrids (4-5/21-24) and they were much easier to hit but honestly the gaps weren't enough to keep them vs my 4i so I went to a longer hybrid that is going to take more work. 
Mine is to play to a single digit handicap and keep it. I started playing seriously and trying to actually learn the game a year ago. I was able to get it down to a 15.x this summer but then an injury at work changed my grip/swing and threw it all out of whack and I went back up to a 23. Well now I'm working with a new coach and my power is coming back, putting is ok, just need some consistency and I hope to achieve that this year. Stupid mistakes are costing me stroke,...
For me it's probably 70-75%. Much less and I hit the ground like you because my lower body gets dead trying to be too gentle. Much more and I tend to let my right arm get away from my body and come out to in pretty bad resulting in at best a toe strike and at other times a brutal slice. 
My Golo by far.    I've also got a SC Studio Select Newport 2.0, Select Big Sur, NC Sub 30 type 20 and type 50, Yes! Sandy, Odyssey White Hot 2 balls, Nike Method Core MC3i, and others I can't even remember.    The Golo is just my go to. I drain more putts with it without even thinking. I have a pendulum stroke with a putter and this thing is just so perfectly balanced for me, I look at the cup, line up my feet, stroke, drop....  And if it doesn't, it's within a...
I bought all 11 of mine (I have a problem).
Crane is one of my favorites just because he seems to enjoy life so much. His youtube channel and facebook page are always full of stuff like this. 
When I first started it was the only way I swung a club. Especially the driver. Now 9 out of 50 times that resulted in disaster but within 6 weeks of playing I hit the longest straightest drive of my life (still haven't beat it).    Once I started lessons, I developed a smoother more repeatable swing and now I need to find a happy medium. My current swing is smooth and mostly accurate with mid/short irons but not impressive as in 145-150 7i.    My one and only...
