After my driver my next club is a 15° 3 Wood then I've decided to place my 21° iron with a 21° Titleist 913H. So I have a gap to fill with one club. and need to decide on a 4 wood, 5 wood or another 913H hybrid in possibly 17° (can change loft).
My concern with the hybrid is will I be able to plug the gap or will I find myself short.
My concern with the fairway woods is that I had an 18° 5 wood and although I easily get it off the group and get distance I thought it went too high and was not very accurate so wouldn't trust it when attacking a green. One factor is that is was a regular flex whereas I now know I need a stiff shaft. Also I generally find that 5 woods are going out of use and those that do have them are at least 50 years old and use them because they have for their entire life. Younger players seem to have dropped them in favour of 18° hybrids.
I might just bite the bullet and get fitted with my pro but thought I'd get some opinions to see if I could save myself extra money on top of the cost of the 21° 913H and other club.
So does anyone use a 3 wood and 4 wood setup and have an opinion?
Not trying to be ageist but are there any above average distance hitters like myself under the age of say 35 that still use a 5 wood followed by a more lofted hybrid setup, or is everyone only using hybrids?
I need the club to average about 220 yards, so what do people think in terms of accuracy in attacking the green over that distance for woods v hybrids?
