Custom Driver to match my swing (Please Help)

3 posts in this topic

I am in need of a new driver to match my swing. I buy a new driver off the rack every other year and I still have lots of problems of the tee. I am a 7 HC and just got a set of custom fit irons. First time in my whole life (31 years). I found out I needed my irons at 3 degrees of lie up. I have a upright swing. This made a huge difference for my ball striking with my irons and it made me realize I need to order a custom driver as I never looked at the numbers until recently. I currently have a 107-110 MPH swing Speed with a ball speed of about 155. My launch angle is around 8 degrees( I de-loft my clubs with a twelve degree loft driver callaway FT). Rmps on my current drives are around 3200-3400 RPMs). I tend to hit the ball low and my misses are left. My drives go about 240-260. When I kill one 280. I was looking for suggestions on club head, shaft, and length of driver. I am 5'9" and was thinking I should have a 44" driver not my current 45.5. I was also wondering if I can change my lie to match my irons which is 3 degrees up or if I should. I am interested in a 430 cc driver head with 12 degrees of loft. I am also thinking I need a low kick/ high launching stiff shaft. ( one that can really help me get the ball up). Any suggestions on certain shafts or club heads would be great. If you need more information please let me know. Thanks.

Well I would first recommend learning to hit up on the driver. If you are taking a current 12 degree driver and delofting it to 8 degrees at impact, that in it self is an issue.

Hitting up increased launch angle, decreases spin loft (reduces spin), and promotes better launch conditions. If you are getting 3200-3400 rpm by hitting down on the driver, I would look into actually changing how you swing your driver than actually changing your club.

I have tried to make adjustments to my swing but it never seemed to work too much. I will play around at the range next time I go. I don't play enough I feel to completely change my swing. I have had the same swing for many years and feel if I can get a driver to fit my swing I know I can repeat my swing. I know I might not ever have the perfect driving stats but if I could increase my launch angle to 10-12 I would be very happy. I could always to continue to hit my 3 wood or hybrid off the tee but one if these days I need to find a drive I can hit. Thanks for your input. Maybe when I get older and have some more time I will take some lessons. I might just have to go get fitted at a real fitting place with access to lots of shafts and heads.
