I have had major struggles hitting really low tee shots with my Nike for around 5 months

Today I went to the Alberta Golf Show, and unfortunately Nike wasn't there, because I wanted to talk with a rep about it.

Anyway, I visited the Adams booth and swung their new F11 driver, 9.5* Stiff shaft. I was hitting this thing so well. My swing speed was being recorded at 108-111mph and carry was 260-268. I LOVED THIS DRIVER

I talked to him about my Nike and he didn't know what was going on with it.

I head to the Ping booth, same thing with the G15, hitting it great.....head to the Callaway booth, again, hitting it great ( RAZR driver is average IMO )

Anyway....so I have no clue what is making my trajectory so low with my Nike....when I hit other drivers with same loft and shaft stiffness.

The guy at the Ping booth said some drivers just don't work with some people.

Any ideas?

You've answered the question yourself.

Get one of the ones you like. You've named three brands.

I agree always buy what you like. In the end you will eventually and kick yourself for all the stuff you bought in between

Are you sure you didn't get a fake since the price was so low?   Maybe your driver is damaged in some way if it is legit.  Have you tried hitting the same driver in a store to see if the results were the same?

It is legit. I got it form a course pro shop where I frequent in the playing months.

I am going to Golftown today to try some drivers. I will try hit one of their VRs and see how it compares to mine,

I am also taking mine in to check launch angles etc

Ok.

So I went to Golftown and grabbed a few drivers.

Finally chose the Titleist 909D2 Stiff Shaft 9.5*. Swing Speed ranging from 108-114, launch angle around 11 degrees, carrying 260-270, rolling to 280-290.

Got the best dispersion with it, felt the nicest and was only $250

Did not have one with an XS shaft in it, but that may be a possibility....swung my Nike while I was there and was averaging 40 yards less than the Titleist and nowhere near the accuracy...no idea what is up with it

Anyway,

I hit the range after wards and I LOVE this thing.....great buy and feels good to see the ball actually launching correctly

    • I'm in Southeast Florida.  The course I typically play has reduced rates for the off season between the end of April until the end of August.  Sometimes rates further reduce in the afternoon.  Afternoons during the summer would be the time you can likely find the lowest rates.  People avoid those times due to the heat.  Rates are highest between fall and spring.  Peak is typically Thanksgiving to Easter when seasonal resident (snowbird) play is at its highest.
    • Yup. I have started to play better recently and the soft cap was removed. I am now closer to my low index than I am to the high index that triggered the soft cap. Frankly, I have no problem when my cap is going downward. It means I am playing and scoring better. I usually play for some money and I notice I win more when my index is close to the low index. I was getting hammered as my cap went up. The extra strokes meant nothing. 
    • When I read this, it makes so much sense.  Without having given it much thought before, I had assumed the opposite up to and including yesterday's round (and I can count for-sure a double bogey I made where I assumed that it would be straight for my bogey putt). This is going to have to be something I keep in mind going forward. 
    • Its been a while since I've been to the Orlando area, but we use to go in early April. I thought our rates were typically slightly lower, but I could be wrong. You can definitely get deals on hotels, condo's or rental homes in off season.
