I don't use my driver either for a few different reasons:
- I can hit my 3 wood as far if not further than my driver (especially in summer when the roll out is far greater with the lower piercing ball flight I can get with my 3W)
- its far more accurate, I can hit 80% of fairways with it - for very little if any loss of distance.
- during team match play events I found that most of the people I play cant hit as far as I can hit my 3W with their driver so it got me playing a more defensive game - I know I can hit the fairway more than they will with their driver and ill still be further.
The only reason I keep my driver in my bag is with preferred lies or a drop within 2 club lengths it gives me more flexibility.
Day 12, January 20 2020.
Today I was working from home and, several times, went to hit a few balls in the adjacent practice room. Indoors, off a mat, into a net, mix of real and fake balls (plus of course practice swings).
