What is it you like about the Bobby Jones fairway woods or hybrids.

well, the hybrids have more of a traditional fw shape which I like. Both the hybrids and fairway woods have a shape that allows them to be hit off the deck with ease much like the aforementioned steelhead. I'm a traditionalist and I'm a bit put off by the standard hybrid look. I was killing the Idea Pro tonight though.

I spent a long time choosing a fairway wood a couple of months ago. I wanted something which sat nice and tight behind the ball for fairway shots. It came down to the TM R9 or the Ping G10/G15's. Not the most affordable clubs but certainly the best for me. I chose the R9 after finding a great deal on it for £99 (ex-display but never been swung).

I appreciate all of those of you who replied. Your input was helpful in my decision. As my signature indicates, I decided on the Cleveland Hibore XLS 3 & 5 woods. After spending a fair amount of time in front of the launch monitor at a local golf shop the choice was fairly easy.

I hit 50 range balls yesterday with the 3 Wood XLS and loved it, I originally planned on a Nike Sumo Sq but after the session I am going out today to demo the club again to make sure it was not a fluke.

I think they Hibore's get discounted as not being great clubs next to the Launchers, but I liked the Hibore better. I won't be able to take them to the course for several weeks, but they felt good and the numbers supported what I was trying to achieve. I hope it works out for you as well.

I'm a bit of a short hitter so my 3 wood comes out more often than most people and I've been very happy with my Nike Dymo - it replaced my Sasquatch 4 wood which I wasn't confident off the deck with. Cuts through grass very nicely, forgiving (I'm pretty decent off the deck now) and consistent.

I opted for the square one but I think I would have been perfectly happy with the regular one too - I tried both and found the square slightly more forgiving with very little negative impact.

    • I've been Playing Golf for: 3 years My current handicap index or average score is: 4.5 My typical ball flight is: big fade / slice The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice   Hey, I have a "my swing" threat on tst right after I started but it's now too old to update so I created a new one. Really interested in what you guys think. I'm working alot on my swing therefore I'm happy for every single tip especially if it straightens my ball flight. Thanks! Videos:     
    • How about The Reserve at Spanos Park?  Just north of Stockton right on I-5, that might work for timing?  In Sacramento, I also see Bing Maloney and Teal Bend both close to I-5. I wouldn't recommend making a detour towards Fresno - really no reason to lengthen a trip to get through there unless you planned on going to Yosemite or Kings Canyon / Sequoia as well.
    • What aspect of putting are you failing at?  For example, I can consistently do the ruler drill to over 80% accuracy (I often get 20+ to go straight out of 25).  Yet I'm a terrible putter, so lately I've been doing a "coin drill" at 4' and 6' (sometimes one or the other, sometimes one then the other).  I put 12 coins in a circle, approx equally spaced, around a hole, and try to make a putt from each coin.  I pick up the coin when I make one from there, and count total putts.  This gives a little bit for line and reading short putts.  I really should institute a penalty for myself when I leave one short from that distance. ESC also had a great drill from 12' or so:  pick a hole 12' or so from you (doesn't have to be exact), putt one ball to it.  Make it, give yourself two points.  Two-putt, and the first went past the hole?  No change.  Two-putt, first didn't get to the hole?  Lose a point.  Three-putt (or worse), lose 3.  See if you can get to 10 points. I guess I'm asking:  is it read, speed, or bead that you're struggling with?
    • Day 60.  Today was a good day for Shindig's game.   I was able to get to a course and spend some time on the putting green, including doing a 6' coin drill, completing it in 26 putts.   That's better than my target goal of keeping that under 30.  Of course, fewer is always better.  I also, later in the day, hit 30 chips with my 56 and 30 with my gap (U) iron, quarter shots all, indoors, real balls, off a mat, into a net, and managed a dozen slow, careful full 6-iron shots too.   If it seems that I'm prioritizing short game lately, you're right.  I have two tournaments in the next seven days, so I'm trying to do what I can in the short term to bring my score down by focusing on these.  Plus, let's face it, my short game is abominable anyway, so this isn't a bad thing long term either (although I do subscribe to 2/3 on long game, in general, of course).
    • Day 492: Something has not been feeling in sync lately, so decided to not do any "full" full swings today. Did takeaway drills in the mirror for 15 minutes, observing DTL and FO views to make sure I am getting to an okay spot at shaft parallel. Then did the same drill outside, and stopped at shaft parallel, and then when a bit further and kind of bunted the ball into the net. Did this for about 30 minutes with a PW, 7-iron, and hybrid.
