Hit 3-wood farther than driver.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I am a decent handicap and have tried different driver shafts but I consistently hit my fairway food farther with carry and total distance. I am at the point now that I don't even hit the driver and my scores are better. I get a nice high ball with my wood but low balls with my driver. My current driver is taylormade R580xd 9.5 with stiff MAS-2 shaft. My driver ss is 102 mph. The shaft in my three wood is stock cobra shaft also in stiff (Cobra sz wood). Thanks and any suggestions are appreciated.

OK I haven't posted a video before it should be pretty simple.

Depends on the golf shaft. 9.5 could play like an 11 degree driver if the shaft loads in such a way.

I believe it is a high kick shaft. I have actually thought about either going with a 10.5 with a low kick shaft such as prolaunch blue. I also thought about going with a high lofted driver maybe 12 degrees and my fairway wood at 17 or 18 degrees.

As stated above go with a high loft in your driver, at least a 10.5, regardless of shaft IMHO.

If I had to guess I would say your angle of attack is too steep with a driver. Check this out
