Re: Do you really need a driver in your bag?

I carry and use a driver. My success with it comes and goes, but that's true of any club in the bag, including the 3W. When it's bad, it's still not horrible... usually in play. When I bought the new Diablo edge I went with the 11° just to add a bit more height and a bit more forgiveness to my drives. It doesn't roll out as far, but it carries farther than the 10° that I demoed, so they seem to balance out about the same.
I also use it for punching out from under trees and such.... for me it's a good, low trajectory rescue club for some situations. I've saved a lot of strokes by having that shot in my bag.
