It should essentially be within 7.5 degrees to 13 degrees. The angle decides on how well you get the ball high into the air. If you are an amateur go for a lower value if not go for the higher angle. As far as the shaft length factor the longer the shaft the more is the speed. So you could opt for lengths between 43-46 inches. As far as the material of the shaft is concerned you have a plethora of steel graphite and other materials available. For the modern times graphite should suit your putting needs. Lastly you need to finalize on the grip size which should essentially be smaller because larger grips reduces the swing of the club.
Also if you ever move too much laterally or parallel to the target line during the driver swing youll end up striking a fat shot. In a fat shot the club head typically strikes the ground first after which it makes contact with the golf ball resulting in a lot less energy being transferred to the golf ball and resulting in a much shorter shot. In addition if you have a tendency to squeeze your body or straighten your back while youre within your downswing it is going to lead to a thin hit or even a topped hit. If sometimes your hips move forward and backward or sideways then this may also result in a thin hit.

Hitting the sweet spot will result in longer shots with the same swing speed. Another way to increase distance is to simply swing faster. If you can keep your contact quality the same the ball will go further. These improvements are usually attained by improving your swing or by diligent practice. Another factor that we are learning increases driver distance is the angle of attack at which we swing the club into the ball. Studies using the advanced launch monitor Trackman Pro have shown that with a swing speed of 90 mph (average for male amateur players) a change in angle of attack from minus five degrees to plus 5 degrees will increase driver shots by 20 yards or more. Obviously if you hit down on your driver you would want to change this if you can. You can improve your golf swing by increasing your "golf fitness". You can do drills that strengthen the right muscles allowing you to swing faster.
