New 3 wood help

19 posts in this topic

I'm in the market for a new 3 wood.. My old r11 is just getting less appealing to me every round. The loud noise and ding it makes is pretty annoying. And I don't like the way the adjustable sole plate makes it sit higher. I'm sorta looking at the titleist 913 or 910 for a better price.. But I just want a more classic looking club that has a nice sound to it and sits below the ball.. I have a medium to high ball flight. Any help is appreciated!

I have had trouble with 3 woods for years. This season I bought the Callaway X-Hot in stock graphite stiff. Wow! Hit it so well I then purchased the 5 to go along with it.

I looked at that one. I like the way it sits and it has a really hot face. Also like the ping g25. I'll see which i can find cheaper

You may want to check out the Cobra woods. I have had the S2 driver and 3 wood and love them, easy to hit and long.

I have the cobra amp 3 wood and absoulty love it. Some days I hit it further than my driver. Good feel and sound. If price is no issue the amp cell is probably even better

Hit an older used exotics 3 wood at golf galaxy tonight.. Compared it to my 3 wood.. Also hit the callaway x hot.. Carried mine about 225 and rolled about 240.. X hot flew 235 and rolled to 255 consistently. Exotics had similar numbers to the x hot.. Feeling the x hot but may get the shaft cut down because it feels whippy

When looking at the fairway woods, at least test out a 4W. The 4W is more reliable for many golfers than a 3W.

I play a 16.5 Ping G25 4 wood so easy to hit, found the 3W was just not cutting it for me this is the only wood i carry at this point.

I have been told by a few fitters that there are a lot of golfers that would do much better with a 4w dont discount it.

The 4w still go around 250? My hybrid is 17 degree so idk about a 4w

I play a 20* hybrid, but I am not a long hitter by any means I can push my 4 w to 200 +/-.

Believe it or not but I also carry and use a Cobra 7W. I use it instead of a hybrid because I can hit the hell out of it, plus the swing is the same as with a 3W. I have used it out of traps, roughs, you name it, great club. (I know some people call it a lady's club but who cares, I like it).

I started bagging a Razr X Black 4 wood. It's amazing how much more control I gained. It's also a lot easier to get good ball flight with out really losing distance compared to a 3 wood.

I have no trouble getting the ball in the air so a 4w sounds just like my hybri to me.. I have the 910h by titleist. But I'm really liking the x hot by callaway. Not sure if I wanna shell out the money for it yet.. Still recovering from buying my irons

    • Share your New Strokes Gained Data from GAME Golf!
      Sorry if I missed it, but I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere yet:   Game Golf, which uses sensors on the butt end of each club and a wearable GPS device to track yardages, accuracy and efficiency for every shot you hit in a round, is adding a pin placement feature to its software that will allow users to position the hole in its precise location on every green. The company says the result will be enhanced accuracy on putting and short game distance statistics. “A database of pin locations does not exist in golf, so we are building the world’s first and most robust set of accurate data on pin placements and putting for the amateur golfer,” says Game Golf CEO John McGuire. “We’ve put the control for pin placement back in the users’ hands. The big deal is that the next players to play the course on the same day will see automatically accurate pin placements and can truly plan their game strategies.”     http://www.golfdigest.com/story/game-golf-now-giving-you-pin-placement-option-chance-for-dollar1-million     and   New Pin Placement Feature:
      The first advancement not only helps golfers track more accurate putting stats from specific pin placements, but also helps other golfers who will play the same course on the same day. Using GAME GOLF LIVE or the GAME GOLF App, the new Pin Placement feature allows golfers to select the edit button on their phones, zoom in on each green and drag the pin to its precise location, resulting in putting stats that are 100 percent accurate on every green. "We track more data on more golfers on more golf courses worldwide than any other company," added McGuire. "A database of pin locations does not exist in golf, so we are building the world's first and most robust set of accurate data on pin placements and putting for the amateur golfer. With this advancement, we've put the control for pin placement back in the users' hands. The big deal is that the next players to play the course on the same day will see automatically accurate pin placements and can truly plan their game strategies." The new feature also allows for precise adjustment of ball locations on the green relative to the pin, further enhancing the accuracy of the data. The pin placement feature is currently available on iOS (iPhone) platforms and coming very soon to Android systems.   http://www.worldgolf.com/newswire/browse/92198-GAME-GOLF-LIVE-ANNOUNCES-MAJOR-UPGRADES
    • best pull cart for $150?
      You could always check out the best pull golf cart reviews online out there and make a decision for yourself. It's all about the price-point in your case so picking one can be a bit more challenging but there is plenty to look for both in style and quality that will really help you to decide whether or not it's right for you. Don't give up, the right one is out there for you!
    • When a Pro Can’t Correct
      I agree with the other posters . . not really the same thing as us being able to correct on the course.  But I wanted to add that just because you *were* able to correct on course doesn't mean you always will be able to.  There will be days when nothing you try will work.   
    • Lowest score you've seen?
      The most memorable round I ever saw was a -5 66. It was also the best round of my life shooting a +1 72. He was a former club champion and his misses were barely off the green or fairway. Just very consistent on the greens and happen to find 5 pins close to the center.
