Ok, I am a in my 1st year of golf, have had some success by shooting in the 90's the last few rounds. 90 is best score.
I have been playing with goodwill clubs and discount drivers. My goodwill irons are ok, but until I get consistent with them,no point in getting better ones. However my driver has been more stable.
Somehow, someway, I figured out I should choke up on it. After I did that, my driving has been pretty consistent. It is hard to get a true carry/ total on drivers in Tesxas as it ALWAYS windy. Average day is 10-15mph. I hit 220-240 ave. into the wind, and 250-270 total with wind at back. Have snuck in a few 302's and 305s' but if I get 280-290, I have thought it was a lucky clean shot. Today I got 9 holes in with virtually no wind. My shortest was 240 and my longest was 280 as measured by the yd. markers. I play this coarse a lot and they all looked close to where they normally are. Didnt see a 20 yd. forward tee marker.Normally I get one or 2 270's in if I have the wind behind me. Was hitting it really well today.
My question I guess is would a newer driver help ? I hit my buddies Covert the other day and it was a pizz missle ! I told myself I must have one . Just dont know if it would really help. He had it set to 9.5* and I really liked the trajectory. I am hitting an old hand me down 10* Hippo driver. The ball goes a mile high and am just wondering if a) I need a lower trajectory and B) would the newer tech help any ?
