As with drivers, fairway woods also offer the adjustability that can make a club perform to suit an individual’s player’s needs and desires.
New sole designs with a lower center of gravity make it easier to get the golf ball launched toward the intended target with greater ease from all lies, and sleek clubheads allow the metal wood to pass through the air with less resistance, allowing the golfer to dig through rough or sweep the ball off a tight lie in the fairway. Designers have weighted their clubs to provide a more stable head that gives the user extra juice, i.e., distance.
While they may not have the horsepower of the big boys, this year’s fairway woods offer up unprecedented forgiveness. Add to that their ability to generate ball speeds that have been lacking in previous models, and we have some kick-butt clubs to consider throwing into our golf bags.
Okay, so let’s check out these hot new fairways and find a stick that fits your swing.
