First of all ask yourself or fitter, when buying a driver, what loft fits my swing ? The only reason people hit a 3 wood farther than their driver is the loft. The shaft is also shorter in a 3 wood but we can get that length by choking down on the driver like you see Brooke Henderson do on every drive. The face of the driver is so much larger than the 3 wood and you can tee it higher with the driver giving the normal player much more chance of good contact than the smaller more shallow 3 wood head. See what works best for you but I think if you get a driver with plenty of loft and flex and then you choke down a bit, you are on the road to finding more fairways. Good luck!!
