Hit 3-wood farther than driver.

11 posts in this topic

I am a decent handicap and have tried different driver shafts but I consistently hit my fairway food farther with carry and total distance. I am at the point now that I don't even hit the driver and my scores are better. I get a nice high ball with my wood but low balls with my driver. My current driver is taylormade R580xd 9.5 with stiff MAS-2 shaft. My driver ss is 102 mph. The shaft in my three wood is stock cobra shaft also in stiff (Cobra sz wood). Thanks and any suggestions are appreciated.

Post a video of your driver swing.

OK I haven't posted a video before it should be pretty simple.

9.5 degree driver is pretty low.....Loft up?

Depends on the golf shaft. 9.5 could play like an 11 degree driver if the shaft loads in such a way.

I believe it is a high kick shaft. I have actually thought about either going with a 10.5 with a low kick shaft such as prolaunch blue. I also thought about going with a high lofted driver maybe 12 degrees and my fairway wood at 17 or 18 degrees.

As stated above go with a high loft in your driver, at least a 10.5, regardless of shaft IMHO.

If I had to guess I would say your angle of attack is too steep with a driver. Check this out
