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.

    • This whole Jack won 18 majors, so Jack is  the GOAT, and Tiger’s 15 make him not the GOAT, is comparable to Bill Russell being the GOAT of the NBA for winning 11 titles in 13 years, when the most teams in the league when he was playing was 14. No one says that Michael Jordan is any but the GOAT in the NBA. MJ won 6 titles in 8 years while taking a break to play minor league baseball. With a league that had 27 teams and then 29 when he came back.  When Jack won his pre-1975 majors, the talent pool was not that deep. From 1976-1986 Jack won just 4 majors. Tiger yes had a drought with injuries, his vices, more injuries, etc. The talent pool where Tiger won the first 14 of his 15 majors, was three or four fold as deep as Jack’s ‘86 Masters. There were guys that would’ve and should’ve won a major or more majors in Tiger’s era, that didn’t because Tiger was just that dominant. From 2000-08, Tiger Woods played in 34 majors championships, he WON 12. Post World War II no golfer in even there strongest 10 year stretch comes close (maybe Watson’s 8 and 5 out of 9 Open Championships, Nicklaus had 8 in the 1970s) All I’m saying is no one has ever dominated the sport as thoroughly for an extended period of time, as Tiger Woods.
    • I know I'm a year or so behind, but I'm finally watching In The Dark I'll Be Gone.  Fantastic series so far with another two episodes to go.  I hear the just released an epilogue episode this week.
    • It would be worse if he told them he would do that ahead of time, but that's not what happened.  The fact remains that unless someone was yelling DURING the swing no one should have been kicked out in the first place.
