The misconception with a lot of amateurs is that if you use a longer shaft you will hit the ball further!  

Now, there is some truth to that statement.  However, there is a point of no return with each and every player when it comes to shaft length.  If you are a very accurate driver of the golf ball and you are not very long off the tee, a longer driver might work for you.  A lot of ladies come to mind here.  But, if you hit the ball over 250 yards and are not very accurate, then a shorter driver might help you get the ball in the fairway more often.  Would you like a 175 yard shot into the green from the middle of the fairway or a 150 yard shot from the tree or thick rough? I thought so!

Will a shorter Driver help your accuracy to hit more fairways?

Jim Furyk plays with a shorter than standard Driver!

As golfers continue to seek distance off the tee, many companies have responded by producing drivers with a stock shaft length of 45½ inches or, in some cases, longer.

But is that always better? Perhaps not.

For some, a shorter driver shaft might lead to more confidence, more control, and with that, finding the center of the clubface more often. During a past Golf Digest Hot List summit, we conducted a test with a multiple-time winner on the PGA Tour who hit tee shots with drivers measuring 44, 46 and 48 inches. The best results in distance and dispersion came with the 44-inch club.
