Wrapping up the front nine, JS bogied three of the last four holes to finish +10.
For Nos. 6, 7 and 9, he put two tee shots into deep right rough, and one into a fairway bunker. He failed to reach the green on any of these three approaches.
Have you ever been fitted for a driver? Check around and see if there's a driver that will work for you. If you get a new driver (not always 2017, but just not a used one), often the fitting is free.
What problem do you have with driver?
I know a couple of golfers who use 3W for driver, and off the fairway. But, most people lose out on distance by using only 3W.
A 3H and 4H might help out as bridge clubs. You may have to test a few hybrids before you find a model that works for you.
Or, you might find high-lofted fairway woods (5W, 7W) work better. You just need to test things out and see what works.
Also consider taking a tune-up lesson to see if you have any swing wobbles you can cure before you get new clubs.
foot-note. The assembled shaft is 43 1/2 inches. This is a little short for a driver which adds to my conclusion that a previous owner had tipped the shaft and the piece was somehow left inside and held there by friction until I tapped it loose during my re-shaft. Also, the fact that it was on an adjustable driver, they probably had to cut it short to accommodate the hosel adapter. Sorry, if I tend to answer my own questions, but it does not hurt to seek out confirmations. "golf club forensics".
The new shaft was from an adjustable Tour Edge XCG-7 (Matrix White Tie-Stiff). I did a little research and I am fairly certain it was somehow left in the shaft (maybe on purpose just to piss somebody off -it was not new) when they originally tipped it. There is normally quite a bit of the parallel tip to cut from and the fact that it was exactly 1.75 inches long, leads me to believe that it is the piece cut off. I am surprized it didn't come loose before I switched shafts. I am not positive mind you, but after looking at photos of tip trimming, that's exactly what it looks. Heck, for all I know, it may even have been trapped inside the shaft and only came loose after numerous changes in the (so-called) loft adjustment. Anyway, no biggie, I am just a curious sort and obsessive tinkerer.
