Callaway Mavrik FW wood for Senior Player?


Recommended Posts

Am Senior Player coming back from long layoff. Have a Big Bertha Driver and irons 5-AW.

My son in law is a huge Callaway fan and gave a me gift certificate for a  Callaway Driver/FW wood.

Am looking at the Mavrik FW wood but a little concerned I am not yet ready for the club

Feedback appreciated

You know you could give the new Callaway Big Bertha B21 FW a look. You can get it with a lightweight 45g shaft. It's supposed to be a little easier to hit than the Mavrik. It might be similar to the Mavrik Max. For a senior player you might try the 5W version of both and see which one you like better.

I agree, getting out and trying them is your best bet. Pretty much every club made by major OEMs is going to be really good at this point, so without knowing anything about your swing or delivery, it's hard to say whether you would be a good match for a certain club. Find somewhere you can hit them both and figure out which one you prefer in terms of feel/looks/performance.

I'd go hit a few with a fitter or a golf pro. I like the idea of a 5FW, personally. But I have a friend who hits his 4HY farther than I can hit my 5FW. And in truth my Miz Fli-Hi's are probably better for me than the FW. Anyway, go hit a few, realize you are probably better at golf than you think and get the most club you and a fitter think you can handle. Otherwise, can I have the gift certificate? Best, -Marv

    • Why does Rory struggle with consistency?
    • I would say it depends on how the 3W distance works with the length of the holes he is going to be playing. If there are par 4s around 430 for example I think he would be foolish not to carry a club that enabled him to get there in 2. Agree however that flexibility goes up drastically if not carrying putter and with the tournament several weeks away there is theoretically enough time to get comfortable with using a low lofted metalwood or bladed wedge. Really would be ideal to know the course to help strategize.
    • i would suggest a more lofted fairway wood or hybrid since a 3 wood needs a good lie to be hit off the fairway.  If you are in the rough or in a bad lie, then the 6 iron would be your only choice.  A 5 wood might be shorter but is more flexible and adaptable in the types of lies you can play it from.  The iron for me would be anything from a 6 to 8 iron depending on your comfort and distance.  The wedge you should consider whether you can play a slightly less lofted wedge, like a gap wedge maybe.  However, the less loft you have the more skill you need in playing different shots.  Hitting a sand wedge is easier but it does mean most of your shots around and close to the green will be high lofted shots. The putter is the one club where I question whether you truly need it.  If you can putt with something like the wood/hybrid in your bag, that gives you far greater options and flexibility.  However, it would need practice since we rarely putt with any other club. In my case a 4 club choice would be 4 hybrid, 7 iron, PW and SW/LW depending on course conditions.  I would putt with the hybrid and use that for most tee shots.  On my home course, there are maybe two holes where I couldn't reach a green in regulation with those clubs.   Essentially long par 4's where I need to hit driver off the tee.
    • Are the 512 replies to this topic about Rory being overrated or has this become a Rory Catch all topic? If the latter, the topic title should maybe reflect it. Good to see him win again. His first since 2019. 2020 wasn’t his best year and an up-and-down 2021 so far with missing the cut one week and being top 10 the next.  But that has been Rory all along and maybe what spurred this topic: his inconsistent performance. One week he’s hitting it as well as anyone has and the next he’s out of it and struggling. His talent is undeniable, but inconsistency is keeping him down.
    • I'm not an expert but the swing in the video seemed like you did not bring the upper body around quickly enough. Is it possible your focus on not firing the shoulder right away is causing too much lag there? Swing is about tempo so too slow can be an error just like too fast.
