Why does my driver go same distance as 3 wood?

Hitting your 3-wood or 5-wood about the same distance or even a little longer than your driver is a very strong indication that your driver does not match to your Clubhead Speed and your Angle of Attack into the ball. The A of A is the angle at which the clubhead travels on the downswing to hit the ball.

Do you hit a 5-wood off a tee?

Hitting a big-headed driver off a tee is considerably easier. With that in mind, think about putting a 5-wood in your bag instead. The slightly shorter shaft and the extra few degrees of loft make it much easier to hit. Unless you are less than a 10-handicapper, I typically advise avoiding the 3-wood.

Should my 3 wood match my driver?

There is no requirement to match your driver with your woods. Brand, club head, shaft, weight and length are all parts which can match but golfers are best focusing on the combinations which deliver the best results for each club individually. The only exception is the grip which should be the same.

Why do I hit my hybrid further than my driver?

Compared to a driver, hybrids have a much higher loft of between 20º to 26º, making it a lot easier to get a good connection on the shot and easier to lift the ball up into the air. Your driver will typically sit at around 7º to 15º in loft, making it a lot harder to strike through the ball and lift it into the air.
