Did you know that for every half-inch you miss the sweetspot of your driver, you lose about 10 yards of distance?
Some people who do know are the ones who play the game for a living; and that's why the chances are they use a driver shorter - and therefore more controllable - than you. Huge-hitting Bubba Watson's driver, for example, is 44.5in long, while a standard, off-the-rack driver these days is about an inch longer. If Bubba doesn't fancy his chances controlling a driver that length, we're not sure what that says for ours.
This is just one reason why buying clubs off the rack can do your game more harm than good. Yes, a longer-shafted driver can in theory create more power; but chances are any extra clubhead speed will be more than offset by your inability to harness it.
