Driver/Hybrid problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I joined this website a while ago but have since forgot my username and password....oh well. Anyway, like the million threads before this one I am having major issues with my driver and hybrids. I am playing better than ever with my irons, more distance, straighter, better launch angles, the whole 9 yards (no pun intended). There is a couple of things about this issue that is confusing me. I put impact tape on my driver and hit the ball flush almost every time, still hitting worm burners. I went on a LM 3 separate times, consistent 270 area (indoors lol), pretty decent launch angle (10.5 club), low ball spin. The sales associate there said "you must hit pretty well off the tee." Sadly I used to, that's what hurts the most about it. I would like to say I am topping the ball but that is not what the impact tape says. I have been desperately searching for answers about this problem. I will definitely get a video of my driver swing up when I can (sore back at the moment). Its the same story with my hybrids, worm burners. I am able to hit the ball well with a 3 iron, way way way more consistent with my 3 iron than my 20 degree hybrid. I know that I am not going to get real specific answers without a video but I am just curious if anyone else has experienced this. When I first started playing I couldn't really hit long irons well but would BOMB hybrids down the fairway, hybrids were my go to club. At the moment with the 20 degree hybrid my ball position is where I would place a 5 iron and I like to think I swing the same, apparently not. Thanks for reading and I will appreciate any little tidbits that can help me. I will also post my LM stats when I post the video but for reference my ball speed is 150 with my driver. Thanks again

Can't really help you without seeing what's going on. Start a swing thread here

well, all i can say is drivers, fairway woods are kind of a different swing than your iron swing. you need to sweep more especially with woods on the fairway. just practise more with your driver and fairway woods at the range until you get it right(i am in no way a golf expert btw).  when u used the launch monitor were u hitting into a screen? i no this isnt the same thing, but i used a couple simulators this winter and i found it got me in a terrible driving habit. it said i was hitting the ball high and reasonably far, but when i went to the range that wasn't the case at all. after some good practise i started driving the ball good again.

I used to hit my driver, 3w and Hyb this way at times, and the source of this problem was trying to swing too hard.
