Greetings golfers,

I am new to this forum and pretty new to the golfing world. Only been playing for about 6 months now and really starting to enjoy the game except from off the tee box. When i first started playing golf, i use to hit the perfect draw off every tee box and my father who has been playing golf pretty much his whole life was like " how do you do that everytime?". I guess i just had the natural swing for it.

Since about 2 months ago, i have developed the biggest slice off the tee box and i hate. I have tried everything possible to fix this problem and nothing works. The only thing left to change i guess is my driver?

I currently hit a 2007 Burner driver, 10.5 loft with a regular flex shaft?

Am i swinging to fast for this shaft? Should i get a stiff flex/ x-stiff flex shaft or should i change the club completely? I also dont like the way the head lies anymore, it looks very open so i close it alot when im teeing up the ball.

Any help on the would be great. Thanks

I would agree that you should probably invest in a lesson before you invest in a new driver.  Assuming the club is not broken, a new club will do nothing for you unless for some reason you need a stiff shaft. But if you have only been playing for 6 months it's the user and not the tool.

A chronic banana slice can make any head look open

It's most likely something in your swing.  Slice usually means that you are coming over the top on the downswing.  Probably from trying to generate more power.  With that move you either get a big banana slice, or if your lucky and square up the club face, a straight pull.

Get a lesson, a pro should be able to spot the fault right away.
