I have been researching (on the web in general) Driver versus 3-Wood and have found a common theme amongst posters. "Sometimes I hit the driver straight and the next time I do not know where it is going to go!"
Well. It got me thinking. First, I fixed my driver problem only 4 years ago after golfing for 20+ years. That is, I was just like the hundreds of people posting on this or that board with "my driver sucks but my 3-wood ain't bad."
How did I fix my problem? I quit trying to hit it straight. I learned to draw the ball with the driver. And guess what? My driving went from a 180-200 yard fade/slice to a 220-240 draw. And there is no way in heck this little dude can hit a 3-wood 220 in normal conditions.
What is more; my drive in the summer (dry) can get fairly long on the right (hard and sloping away) fairway reaching 280-300 on certain holes. I could never drive that far with my old "let me try to hit it straight" approach.
So my (first question) for the Sandtrap.Com folks:
Do you *try* to hit your driver straight? Or do you purposely play a draw or a fade?
Not A Scratch or a Bogey Golf Player but somewhere in-between.
