Any suggestions on a wood that is a good substitute for a driver? I was thinking of a 2W or 4W. I play mostly par 3 courses with little need for a driver. Even when I play big boy golf I rarely reach for a driver using instead a 5W.
Golf Gear mentioned in this thread:
I know everyone is different and you should look at a bunch of different brands/shafts/etc. but I would like to recommend at least looking at the Burner Superfast 2.0 3w. I actually just returned from Golf Town and was testing both the 2.0 and the R11 and I must say, the 2.0 is super long. I was averaging 15-20 yrds further, on average than the R11. I was suggest trying it, with the longer shaft, it will be longer than the average 3w.
This is of course, if you like it, but I strongly recommend at least hitting it to see what your numbers are.
That is not correct. In fact, it's the opposite. The weight is not farther back, it is closer to the face in the 910fd.
But...it is a great 3 wood for the tee.
A Callway X-Hot might be ideal - http://thesandtrap.com/b/clubs/callaway_x_hot_fairway_wood_review
