MDGolfHacker Posted April 10, 2018 Share Posted April 10, 2018 Having a bit of a mental dilemma... I hit the ball far enough with my long irons to hang with my buddies drivers and my 3w out drives them all. My driver can carry 300 but it's wildly inaccurate---away from the simulator. When I work out in the simulator and get to groove a driver swing I get these gorgeous baby draws that can reach 315. The problem is it isn't carrying over to the course yet. Yesterday was my fourth round out and it was the first time I really focused on hitting the 3w in most driveable holes. So... Knowing I have the potential to have a major weapon in my driver---do I sacrifice scoring over the next few months to really work on my driving accuracy---or do I just keep the driver in the bag except for the 1-2 really open holes per round? My gut says continuing with my driver will help me get to my potential quicker---but it will be a bumpy ride. My competitive nature tells me to bag the driver until I am really confident with it and keep working with teh 3w off the tee as, right now, it gives me the best chance to score well in teh short term? I say bag the driver until you feel confident in it especially if your 3W is plenty long enough with control on the courses you play. I think your competitive nature will agree especially if you don't get yourself in trouble off the tee and end up putting for bird and eagles instead of pars, bogeys or worse.
