I have been playing the last three or four months with a hand-me-down "walter hogan" driver that my friends on our university's golf team have laughed at every time I have played with them. I bought a new Rocketballz 10.5 non tour driver on saturday and got to play with it for the first time today.
It definitely carries about 30-40 yards further than my old driver, but it seems to just hit the fairway and die, sometimes only with one small bounce. So I did an experiment and hit my new driver first and carried it about 290 where it died; and then hit my old driver which carried 250 and then rolled up to 280. At first I thought it might be how high I hit the balls but I actually hit the old club higher than the new one.
So my question is: what factors go into how much a ball is going to roll, and how can I improve that? Carrying 290-300 is a huge improvement, but with 20 or 30 yards of roll that would help so much.
