  1. Average probably about 280. Long of about 315. My swing speed is between 100-115
  2. I've never been fitted for a driver before, but it has been recommended to me. Perhaps I'm underestimating the benefits of doing that? And I'm hitting it mostly square, maybe a little low, but even ones that hit square do the same path. What would cause the ball to lack backspin? Shouldn't that be given no matter what? I might upload a video if I can find the time this week.
  3. Hey everyone, I'm brand new to this forum, but this seemed like a great place to ask this question cause I can't seem to get any answers. So My drives used to go about 280-310 and pretty straight. But the last 2-3 years I have completely lost the ability to hit straight drives. I use a Cleveland Classic driver and I tend to slice the ball pretty badly. Starts right and goes even further right. So about a month ago I purchased a Taylor Made M2 driver and the weirdest thing happens every time I hit it. The ball will start it's path normally, then after about 100 yards it takes a nosedive straight into the ground. I know topspin shouldn't be possible with a driver but that is what it looks like whenever I hit this new driver. And it only happens with this driver. So I've gone back to my old driver cause I'll take 275 and in the trees on the right over like 180. Does anybody have any thoughts on what could be causing this? Obviously my swing is a mess but I don't understand what is going on with my new driver and how the ball could take that kind of path.
