The only suggestion I have is to maybe look at getting a 4 or 5 wood. I really like my Callaway and it has a really nice look and feel. I hit it just as far as the 3 woods I have that I don't carry with me.

Nickent 4DX 3 Fairway Wood
Sonartec GS Tour 3 Wood
Mizuno F-60 3 Wood
Mizuno MX-700 3 Wood
Tour Edge Bazooka GeoMax 3 Wood (CHEAP on ebay!)

ive had good luck with all of those. none are really better than the other except i would say the Sonartec GS Tour is probably a little longer than the rest of them

I have found the Callaway Diablo 3 wood, either the neutral or draw versions (I've tried both), to be the easiest to hit off the ground. I have tried and owned several 3 woods and the Diablo is easy off a hard fairway or light rough. It found a place in my bag.

By far the easiest woods to get off the ground are the new Bobby Jones woods. I was hitting high rockets out of divots at a demo day. The hybrids hit the ball very high, great for low ball hitters or people looking for a very forgiving club. Jesse Ortiz also designed the original Orlimar Tri-Metal woods back in the day, and these look very similar. I would highly recommend the Bobby Jones 15 degree 3 wood or 17 degree 4 wood.

Borrow a friends 5W, isn't that the logical step if you aren't lifting the ball enough? I've never played a 3W from the deck, for exactly that reason. The 5W is plenty workable and I've never had a hole where it wasn't long enough for me.

I used to have the old Callaway Big Bertha 3W (yes, from years ago but it's still a great club). My Dad liked it so much, he kept it for himself. But I've always found that club and other Callaway 3Ws easy to get off the ground. (Note, I used it then cause I couldn't use a driver to save my life.)

For the moment, I've stopped using a 3W. I've opted instead to play a Taylormade Burner 5W which is pretty awesome. Easy to use and to get off the ground. I'm eyeing the Taylormade Burner 3W too... but I don't know if I really need it.

Another good deal at Rock Bottom Golf is the Adams BUL 3 Wood for $49.99. IIRC it was a Golf Digest Gold or Silver pick a couple of years ago. I like it because its easy to hit off the deck or teed up; of course I paid more that $50 for it.

I know they aren't for everyone, but I recently bought a Titleist 909F3 3wood, and haven't and wont look back. I absolutely adore this club! I used (read 'tried to use') a Callaway Big Bertha 3wood, but I always had a tendancy to hit it very low, and eventually stopped using it all together because it just didnt give me a suitable second option off the tee on shorter par 4's. I went to the local driving range around 3 weeks ago, and my friend suggested the Titleist 909f, i used a demo club, 15degree, and i hit it perfectly straight with good trajectory 8/10 times, and similar amount off the deck, which i found very impressive, relatively cheap at $199. As i said though, titleist woods arent for everyone. hope this helps!

I just picked this club up today :) Going to the range to test it out.

I tried out my

Burner 2009 3W (15˚) today and love it to bits. It's easy to get off the ground and distance-wise, it's decent. I managed to get about 220 yards with headwind. I'd recommend it :)

    • I've also only played Kelly and The Links Sandestin.  Both were a lot of fun.  Kelly was my favorite.  Sandestin maybe a little too tight and too many houses in danger of my tee shots. 🙂
    • Four rounds to catch up on: 7/20: Finally got my bro out to Croasdaile to play. I shot 51-44 from the blues that included a nine on the 9th hole. Didn’t putt well: a four putt and four three putts. My bro shot 59 on the front, which isn’t bad at all for him since the front is the tougher side out there, but he played awful on the back. 7/23: Back to the home course for the next three rounds. This one was a nice little 87 where I made a quad on the par-3 third and a triple on 14, but played well apart from that, including back to back birdies on 9 and 10. 7/30: I played the day after we got back from vacation and shot a pretty poor 96. Made a nine on the second hole and it just went downhill from there: 49-47 were the final numbers. 8/1: The best round of the four: shot 40 on the front with no doubles, then a 44 on the back which included a triple on 13 and a double on 17. Total is 84, which I’m super happy with. Also dropped my handicap from 13.8 to 13.5. I’m probably gonna play tomorrow as well, so looking forward to that!
    • Adam, you always give great advice. May I make one suggestion? Use a dry erase marker rather than a sharpie. Much much easier to clean off the club face. 🙂
    • Yea, not something you can decide on your own. Someone can say all the benefits of a single plane swing, but it might not work for you at all. 
    • Damn Kevin…I’m not even an instructor but I certainly think you’re doing yourself a disservice in all this pondering and video searching. Not to be an ass but you're all over the place. You’re building a house and analyzing the kitchen sink before even having the foundation poured. Have a good instructor give you a priority piece then focus on that and that alone. You’ll find much better progress that way. Just my two cents.🙂
