7 wood on PGA tour? - Page 2

post #19 of 24

I use a Maltby 7 wood and have used it since last year and it is my go-to club in tight situations. I also use it in place of hybrids as I don't carry any and plus I can hit it out of deep rough with the same ease as a hybrid, for me. I get a very high ball flight with mine as I put a shaft on it for that reason and can get around 220 out of it on average. For me it is one of those clubs I know on very tight tee shots 9 times out of 10 I am putting it just about where I want it to go, big confidence booster club.

Basically I use it for anything out of 4i range, tight tee shots, recoveries and approaches on short par 5's. Home course has a sub 500 yd par 5. Also have a 3-4h but where I play the fairways work through long grass better with less risk of popups.


What a difference a few months make. I've swallowed even more pride and went to a 43" driver 12, 3w 15, 5w 18 and 7w 21. Took out the 4i even though I hit it well, but I am at 14 clubs with 5-PW 50 54 58.

I am absolutely amazed by this Adams Tight Lies 7w thus far.  So easy to launch with a high draw.  I usually feel I have to set up way open and hit a fade to get any height at all with a fairway wood.  I can just take my normal set up and swing with this thing.  I can hit it out of just about any lie.  It is easier to hit than a 3h for me and I launch it higher and a bit farther.  I will continue to test and write up a review on this thing next week.

So how does the 7w fit in your set up?

I needed something I could advance the ball from longer distances from the thick stuff.

 

Other than that here the are distances off the deck:

 

3W: 220-235(depending if I can hit anything higher than a stinger, right now it is only 220-225.  I need a little blue pill for this club at the moment)

 

7W: 215ish maybe 220 on a warm day.

 

4H: 200

I heard McDowell interviewed after his -2 round at the US Open today. He hit a 3 hybrid from the rough to the 18th green, so I'm guessing he's not a 7-wood man.

All a matter of personal preferences, of course, but it's interesting to see how these "easier" clubs are making their way into top players' bags.
