How to Hit the Sweet Spot of Your Driver Consistently Every Time?

I struggle with my driver constantly. I'll have rounds where I really strike the ball well and can hit it 235-245. Then there are rounds where I'm hitting huge slices and I just give up and go to my 3 wood. I can hit it 200-210 and fairly straight, so often times, I'll just start with the 3 wood and never even pull the driver, even on par 5's. I'm never quite sure what the differences are between my swings. I agree with the comments above, practice and range time is a must. I'm also inclined to get a couple of lessons when I can find the time and money. I will say, I always score better when I can get off the box well, because my confidence rises on good tee shots. If I'm in the woods or the bad rough or as often happens, in the other fairway, I get frustrated and my game suffers.

Was that you I was playing behind last week... 12 minutes to find your ball?!  You know, it's 2019, and there's a new rule.  You only get to look for your lost ball for 3 minutes.  If you are looking for your lost wedding ring you get 4 minutes. If you are looking for your lost virginity... well, they give you an hour for that.

Well, I've been looking for the latter since high school.  I guess my time is up.

But as @Augusta_Guy says, he plays once every 5-8 years.  So not having lost a golf ball in 8 years is not too far fetched if he only played one round, although even that in itself is pretty hard to do.  I seem to lose one or two every round - source of my blow-up holes.

With regards to the topic at hand, you just have to find it in the dirt - a la Ben Hogan.
