Nothing wrong with being a picker. Look at Tom Watson. Plus, you don't have to clean your clubs off quite as often, :D.
At the range today, I discovered something. I've always hit my driver/3 wood trying to kill the ball, and subsequently, having to stand a ways back from the ball. Today, I decided to approach these two clubs like I approach my irons. I've never hit my 3 wood so well, and my driver was going much straighter than usual. My misses weren't huge arcing slices, but moderate fades. So from this point forward, I'm working on using the same swing for my woods as my irons.
I'm still undecided on how to hit my driver. Playing yesterday morning, all morning I was hitting my driver like I hit my irons, and I was getting decent results. Not very long, my best might have been 250, but even my slices didn't get me into too much trouble. On 18, I decided to try and really get after it, and of course I annihilate it. I hit it right down the middle with a slight draw, and rolled out to just over 300. I'll definitely keep hitting my 3 wood like I hit irons, but I'm going to be experimenting and working on my driver a lot.
Also figured out last week that I let my backswing get way too long for my iron shots. I was getting more and more inconsistent until I realized that. Now I've been focusing on hitting what feels like about 80% for a full swing. I'm making solid contact on almost every shot again.
