So my driver distance has been dropping, according to arrcos it’s in the low 200’s with a swing speed in the 105-110 range, hitting high pop ups, I’ve tried moving it back in my stance, lower tee, etc. from what the trackman at a local store says my attack angle is too steep. I am striking my long irons well though and getting 155yds with my 7 iron. 
 

Anyone have any tips or ways I can fix this and get some distance back?

Not sure if you can get on a launch monitor like GC Quad but I was just able too and it was an eye opening experience. I have been mostly self taught and lately have the same issue, swing speed around 105 on course but hitting it 220. For me the issue is obviously multiple, I deliver too much dynamic loft (well north of 20), plus hitting up gets launch numbers averaging around 18, that and the open face and massively out to in path get the spin around 3500 to 4000. 

Of course I am not sure what specifically is doing that for you but wanted to share my experience. So I am currently working to really exaggerate the shallowing/ coming from the inside with a slightly close face to path. I do this by really keeping the right elbow tucked in. This should all help in theory bring down dynamic loft a bit but still launch ok if I hit a bit up on it and lower the spin. Only time will tell and seeing how far off I was on my own has me contemplating lessons for the first time ever. Good luck on your journey to get this delivery more improved.

There are a lot of drills that will help you hit more up on the ball.   The best one I have seen is to put a headcover about a grip length in front of the ball and when you swing miss the headcover with your driver.

I will try this tomorrow and hope I don’t lose my head cover!

Low tee just makes you hit down more! Get that tee height up and move the ball forward in your stance. Practice with a super tall tee so you naturally learn how to hit up on the ball ( but use an old driver at the beginning of those practice sessions haha).

make sure your get some spin tilt ( away from your target) at address

I don’t think 6000 with a driver is physically possible. Were you on trackman indoors? Then chances are those spin numbers were in italics, which means trackman is estimating spin number and not actually reading it

start with a slower swing,  don't go all out with swing 1.  😄

I was indoors. I don’t remember if it was in italics or not. The guy said I was getting 7 iron spin with a driver.

Golf is a game of opposites. Normal thinking would have been to lower the tee. Pretty cool.

These tips helped a bit, still gotta practice them more but was at least getting some of the distance back
