Love me some fairway woods. I’m not a high swing speed guy, but I’m not slow either. I play 3, 5, and 7 woods, then 4h. Higher launch, higher spin gives me a softer landing. Took out a 52* wedge and changed around to a 48, 54, and 60 mph edge setup to accommodate more clubs at the long end. I like it.

I find hybrids are not as good out of rough as I have seen advertised. Maybe it’s my technique, but I am reaching for my irons instead now.

For me it depends on the depth of the rough. But in general my concern is a poorly struck iron out of the rough will be a disaster for me whereas a hybrid will still move the ball even if just a ground burner.

I find it challenging because I can’t practice it at the range, only on the course.

I’m lucky to have hillsides and rough to practice with…..and  they’re on the far right side of the range so I’m good.😃🥴

That's like the bushes on the far side of my range that I practice out of. When wielding a golf club bushes have more give than you might think. It's the big oak trees that don't budge.

For me the shape of the sole and leading edge on the M6 9 wood makes it much easier and consistent to hit out of the rough compared to the hybrids. It seems to glide better through the tall grass, and doesn't get wrapped up and pulled closed or open as easily.

Please tell me it was also a vintage MB rather than modern utility iron.

Oh yeah, definitely.   This was in the late 80s/early 90s and it was old then.  All the clubs were.   The “clam digger” 5 wood was metal, but I think everything else was wood.

As you can see from my signature, I'm a 9-wood user. As IACAS noted, at 23* it has the loft of an old school 7-wood. On a simulator, I had an average carry of 155 yards, which is being born out on course. It is a great option for 150-160 yard par 3s and similar length approach shots.

    • I am retired, but have a turf degree. The course I used to belong to used to have guys that did not play golf doing the set up. I used to play 9 by myself a lot, and was usually the first off. When I would see tee markers set like that, I’d move them.
    • Tiger Woods Corrects Dwyane Wade After Basketball Star Calls Him the GOAT: 'I'm Not There Yet' "I'm not done," 82-time PGA Tour winner Tiger Woods repeated after retired NBA star Dwyane Wade... I do not think his comment “I’m not done” simply meant he expected he could do more in his professional career.  He neither accepted nor declined the monicker of GOAT.
    • Use your best judgment. You can have multiple home courses. But if you only play them once a month or something that’s going to be tough.
    • Nice birdie on the 17th today.  Started on the back 9.  About 500 yard tee shot over water and a fairway hazard around 250.  Got it that length but missed the hazard.  Then a 2 hybrid got me inside 50 yards of the green and a great PW put me inside 5 feet.  Drained the putt for a nice birdie 
    • Last evening played on a 9 hole league. Short, fairly easy course. Drove wildly, putted poorly. Still shot a 41. It helps when your drive can be in the adjacent fairway and you can still reach in regulation with a 9 iron or wedge.......
