Among the long-range tools in your bag, your fairway wood should be crafted for distance off the tee or on the approaches. Woods provide a critical bridge between the driver, long irons and hybrids.
Used on the green on par-5 and long-par 4 holes or off the tee for accuracy, your fairway woods should provide greater forgiveness than an iron, due in part to the sweeping motion required to hit with them. Find the fairway wood that matches your game: Select between a variety of lofts, flexes and right and left-handed clubs.
Select your fairway wood based on the strengths and weaknesses of your game. Seniors and players new to the game benefit from high-lofted fairway woods, for example five and seven woods. More experienced golfers should look to woods designed for an adjustable loft - enabling you to tune the wood to the needs of your game.
Today’s fairway woods feature shafts built from lightweight materials.
Many players prefer woods in graphite shafts, which produce faster swing speeds thanks to the materials lightweight and easy flex. Fairway woods are designed to provide distance and trajectory transition between a driver, hybrid or long iron. As a result, woods are manufactured in longer lengths.
When purchasing your fairway wood, consider the clubhead material:
- Steel: Steel is the most popular material for fairway wood heads
- Titanium is half the weight of steel. This material’s light weight allows equipment manufacturers to engineer a center of gravity in the back of the head, helping launch the ball early, provide maximum distance and reduce twisting on off-center hits
- Composite: Multi-material clubs combine modern materials, like carbon, steel and titanium. Like titanium heads, composite materials help produce better launch and consistency on off-center hits
