Well, I am usually pretty consistent with my 3 wood. This slice was a really rare shot for me. I am much more consistent with it than my 5 iron. It was really the best thing to get where I was trying to go until this rare mishit. But I don't ever really mishit my driver other than a high slice that would have been ok in this case.
But I do need to focus on the last thing you said, trying to go for a bogey rather than trying to get a GIR. I usually get GIR 3 or 4 times in a round, and at least one of those is on a par-3. So I shouldn't even be shooting for that, and I try to remind myself of that.
I guess some folks have better luck with woods than irons. I keep forgetting that. For me, they go pretty linearly from least consistent (driver) to most consistent (wedges) right down the line. I've got a 17* hybrid that might be the exception. I hit it as consistent off the tee as I would a 4 or 5 iron probably - and a lot more distance.
