Concentrate on serving a perfect serve [take your sweet time] and playing straight drives or smashes at body or drop/clear to center to take away his angles.
If you can take away space, time and angles, you can neutralize his superior skills. [Not easy to execute, you need 100% concentration and willpower] If you make less mistakes than him, you win. But the game will be very boring to watch and your opponent will be very angry.

Even if you lob it back to him, make sure it's high and you have time to go back to your centre to take the next shot. I find many players hit the shuttle then spends like 1 second or longer at their spot so see where it goes. It's a bad habit.
And...if you have the correct footwork then taking a drop shot should be a piece of cake. Especially if you've anticipated it.
The next problem is what you do next with the drop shot, since you are at the front of the net, the same thing applies. You need to get back to your center, again in anticipation of the next shot.
See more matches and see how the pros do it. And try observing their foot. How they seems to be able to glide effortlessly through the entire court. Then have a friend watch you play, or take a video. See why you seem to be exerting so much energy and yet still slower.

Wait till he gets to be about 59 (my age) and will probably find that drops are the only shot he can hit and that you can beat him quite easily.

i recently came across a very good article regarding badminton footwork skills. One of the pointer was to return in slower speed in subsequent steps after your first step during your return.
so the first step of your return should be as fast as possible and the next one (or ones if you're further away from the center) should be slower.
The theory is that if you return uniformly quickly including the final step towards the center... An experience opponent could just put the shuttle on the same spot where you hit it and using your own momentum against you... put you off balance.

Playing the drop right is critical, it has to be deceptive enough or your opponent will be ready for you at the net. Mix your drop well with straight fast attack clear, in this way they will not have the tendency to stand near the net.
