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'm watching this video and he mentions "he got himself a little more out onto the front of his feet" and "he's got himself more centred in to back of his feet" in the other comparison https://youtu.be/S8dkDx8YVkI?t=242  Does that mean he puts more weight on the front of his feet than the back?   One more question: how do you create more space for the right arm during impact as mentioned here? He's more tipped over which allows this , I think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8dkDx8YVkI?t=280 Would reducing how much your right forearm can rotate clockwise help with this, duringthe end of your backswing?
    • Sounds like he may have originated from my neck of the woods,   ‘Awayanbileyerheid’ is a fairly humorous response to someone ,  sort of like ,get lost your talking drivel (nonsense) If you want to get an insight of the meaning , Google ‘ Parliamo Glasgow’ -;))
    • I don’t think there is anything wrong with watching YouTube golf instruction videos, if and only if you stick to one or two instructors. I personally like Matt Fisher and Danny Maude myself.    Funny story: I played golf with three guys I haven’t seen in person since about 2003 today. Anyway one of the guys I played with, reminded me of a video I watched on posture recently, with Danny Maude. Me as a low single figure handicap my arms look like / at address down the line. You want them like | or \ slightly on the latter. My posture sucks… and I shot 1 under on the back today.
    • Can you share some information about your computer, such as OS?
    • There used to be a joke about the instructional articles in Golf Digest.  It might still be there, I haven't subscribed in years.  Anyway, every odd-numbered month, the lesson would be "fix your slice," but what they wouldn't tell you is that it'd cost you 10 yards.  In even numbered months, they'd tell you how to gain 10 yards on your tee shot, but not tell you that it'd cause you to slice. YouTube instruction is a bit like that.  You'll get conflicting information that may or may not cancel out.  Find someone reputable and get lessons for you not for some generic you. If you need someone online to give you something to work on, and don't feel like spending the money for something quality like Evolvr (hey, money was tight when I took up golf, I understand), at least make a "My Swing" thread and try what ends up being suggested for you.  The first time I did this, I was shocked at how someone could watch a few swings on video and give me good advice of what to practice that resulted in some improvement.
