I've been taking lessons for the last month which helped a great deal, and yesterday was the first day the instructor gave me the green light to hit the driver so I can test things out using the same principles. First swing was at 110, then I got more and more comfortable with the swing and started getting into a grove. My question comes around how to lower ones launch angle without sacrificing the things one has been working on, and what that launch angle is.
My average distances with those swings were about 270 yards of carry, but I think with a bit more refinement, I can get more out of it.
The other question is the driver I was testing I was using a stiff shafted driver, and he stated im in that grey area between stiff shaft and x-stiff shaft. Could that be having an affect on launch angle as well (forgive my ignorance, but i've always played a stiff shaft and this is the first year i'm really paying attention to investing in equipment). Thanks...
