Are these center of the face hits? Could be your swing, How high is it teed up, where in your stance is the ball? you could simply just be hitting on the up. For good shafts look at the Enzo Zolo HL4 or also the RT Technologies Zeus LT.

Yes in the center and tee it up low so when I put the club next to the ball it's lined up to the center of the face. It's on my the inside of my left foot

move the ball back so you aren't catching it on the upswing?

it's recommended the ball be placed in line with the left heel... as far as all the reading, and watching I've encountered indicates.

I'm not a teaching pro so maybe someone with a little more experience with this could help but a cast could also cause a high launch.

But this just started happening when I got this driver that's why I'm wondering if it's the shaft

Is the loft the same? If all else is the same then shaft is the only thing left...

Actually a lower loft. Use to have a 10.5 but down to 9.5. I have a fast swing speed. Was just wondering if this happens to anyone else

I purchased a prolaunch red shaft for my driver because I was having the same problem and it has help a lot. I went with that shaft on a recommendation from someone on this site and it did exactly what it says it does. Besides it was only $49 which was sweet. At that price I figured it would be worth a try.

Ditto, I have the ProLaunch Red with an Adams adjustable head on it set to 10*. The shaft plays a bit stiffer and has a high kickpoint which means your fulcrum will be a bit higher in the shaft. My driver swingspeed is about 105, regular flex shaft, and I've been averaging about 270 with a nice boring trajectory and a fair amount of roll. Shaft in your driver means alot, high kick point ,stiff tip will generally be a shaft with a lower flight.

"Shaft in your driver means a lot, high kick point ,stiff tip will generally be a shaft with a lower flight."

I just bought very clean and cheap Mizuno TZoid bore thru driver with 12* loft. And, too bad, a L shaft. Ain't bad but really sends the ball high so i gotta change the shaft. Since i gather that the bore thru also leads to somewhat stiffer response and i want a lower flight, should i look for a the high kick and stiff tip? I'll be going for a R flex, SS probably 95.

    • If lessons from an instructor were not available, I might suggest a visit to the local library, or internect connection, and read up on the basics of the swing. Address position, grip, and a one piece take away to the top of the swing. I wouldn't worry about anything else, untill I had a working understanding of those three items.  Once I understood the above items, I would move on the more finer points of the golf swing, a little at the time.  Too many times I think golfers over load themselves with swing mechanics, with out fully understanding these mechanics, and how they relate to each other. Frustration sets in, and they don't improve, or worse yet they quit. 
    • Sometimes, it takes a guy a couple of years to find his game again after winning one or more majors. After a major win, I've heard they go on so many paid exhibitions and travel so much doing so that it wears them out, and can affect their swing. But Jordan's worked on his swing over the last year; and it could be he needs another set of eyes, or a consultant to assist his instructor.
    • You are not yet 40, so yes you can definitely get more distance. But, it will come down to a couple physical factors: flexibility, muscle control, muscle speed, and coordination.  It sounds like you have some coordination and control, you just have to learn how to properly let the club head go and know how to create ideal launch conditions.  A pro can certainly help.   You don't have to be fred couples or john daly to hit the ball long.  At 8 months, you most likely don't fully trust the swing yet.  Once, you start trusting yourself more, you'll be able to let it go more and get some distance.
    • 2017 D&D Invitational Pretty tight leaderboard with some big names, going out in threesomes due to weather threats.  Should make for some good watching. Simpson has been trending this year of late.  He's back on with his putting after several changes since the anchoring ban.  I'm rooting for him. I also like the D&D shops.  Ridiculously high dollar, but some good eats.
    • It's tough to answer without knowing your physical abilities, but my guess is that you will gain some distance since you've only been at it 8 months. In reading your post, you seem to be a student of the game. What I like is that you are not bothered by this right now - except as a gauge for improvement. In my opinion (I'm not very experienced) and as you stated, trying to keep up with others can be very detrimental. Be patient, and keep learning and developing your mechanics. Distance will come.
