    Why can't I hit Driver? - Aagghh

    So damn frustrating this game

    Can hit the 3 Wood lovely - 240 yds straight and true or slight fade

    Great

    Put a Driver, any Driver, in my hands and its either straight 270yds carry or massive slice

    Okay .... so before you type 'dont bother with it if you can hit that 3 wood' ... that's great

    But why do I feel I am missing out by not carrying a Driver

    Its driving me insane

    I see so many people that really try to lash the driver as it is the only 'distance' club in the bag, all other clubs are picked to go a specific distance.

    My guess is when you swing smooth you nail it and when you hit the big slice you are getting way ahead of it.

    You may have a point here ..... I do try harder on the swing but the set up and weight on the feet etc is so diff for the Driver

    if you are losing balls with the driver stick with the 3 wood, even if its a 400 yard hole that should be 7 iron or less with that distance you are hitting with driver or 3 wood. cut out the lost balls and the handicap will come tumbling down i imagine.

    Love to be able to hit it that far with a driver, but its all about keeping the ball in play. as you improve so will the driving.. but if i could hit the fairway 240 yards on every hole around my Track (6600) i would be over the moon.

    Thanks Guys

    I also think there is a bit of pride here

    Feel a wet fish getting the 3 wood out when the others get 'the big dog' out

    I know ....... laugh back when I hit 3 wood and make birdie but ....... still don't feel like a real man!!!

    Stupid isnt it
