Default Distance Driver you use most ON the course?

Not max distance, not open field, but which distance driver do you use most on the course?

My local course has zero holes for bombing. They all have low ceiling.

I use a Discraft Thrasher or flippy Destroyer most on hyzer flip up.

Legacy Cannon with caveat...like most wide rim discs there's variation among the mold. My go-to 167ish opaque Pinnacles (I have like a dozen) are very hyzerflip workable in this situation with the added benefit of skipping if I want them to, or not fading through release/nose angles and height. My heavier Legends or newer clear runs of Pinnacle are significantly more overstable, so they're much more hole specific. Haven't spent much time with my Icons.

To clarify, you are looking for max golf distance in the woods, right?

This is an easy question for me because I only carry one driver: Star Sidewinder

Star Mamba, I have three with different weights. Their my most consistent driver, except I don't use them on a moderate or higher down wind. And they don't get used at all on a strong wind.

I use a plasma or cosmic neutron wave for max D golf lines. My plasma crave or proton insanity get more work though, although those are fairways, not distance drivers.

Not max distance, just MOST USED on the course.

Easy question - 157 Neutron Wave. It is remarkably neutral at my (non-awesome) distance so I can throw it on multiple lines. Fairly flat and shallow so it sidearms nicely, too.

The only other DD I carry is a 157 Pro Wraith, but it only gets to fly when I need more fade. Which, in the woods, isn't very often.

Generally if a course has several 400+ holes I will be breaking out the Warhorse and Atomic Kahu a lot.

However, I played a three round tournament yesterday where I only threw a distance driver twice and it was an S DDX because I wouldn’t be stressed if I lost it in the water.

That's complicated for me...I only carry one mold I'd consider a distance driver [Cannon], though I can throw a Valkyrie pretty damn far.

Valk, final answer.
