Windy day: Driver or stinger 3 wood?

2 posts in this topic

Hello! Recently, the course that I always play in has become quite windy (30kmh +) and whenever I tee it up i'm stuck with the dilemma of playing driver or switching to a shorter club in order to play a control shot with roll out. Whenever I play the driver I hit it on a high launch angle but I am also concerned that a head wind would have me lose too much distance. I just cant seem to play those driver stinger shots because i've become accustomed to an upward driver strike and when I try to punch it, everything goes wrong. This is less of a problem I guess with the 3 wood because I can punch it with my relatively level strike with it, but am afraid of losing too much distance. Which would go further that is, a normal driver shot, or stinger 3 wood against the a strong head wind?

Launching the driver "high" in wind can be ok as long as the spin rate is appropriate for you swing speed and launch characteristics.
