Driverish woods

Recommended Posts

andycook    1

Any suggestions on a wood that is a good substitute for a driver?  I was thinking of a 2W or 4W.  I play mostly par 3 courses with little need for a driver.  Even when I play big boy golf I rarely reach for a driver using instead a 5W.

Look at tour edge exotic (TEE). I've read a couple threads on here talking about how great they are. You could also use any 3w in a 13*.

I've got a Cleveland Launcher DST 3 wood. That thing has the biggest head I've seen for a 3 wood, and a nice shaft to boot (Diamana Red).

Last summer I ditched my driver for a little while and hit this thing full time off the tee on long holes, It's like a 2 wood for me, even at 15*.

I know everyone is different and you should look at a bunch of different brands/shafts/etc. but I would like to recommend at least looking at the Burner Superfast 2.0 3w. I actually just returned from Golf Town and was testing both the 2.0 and the R11 and I must say, the 2.0 is super long. I was averaging 15-20 yrds further, on average than the R11. I was suggest trying it, with the longer shaft, it will be longer than the average 3w.

This is of course, if you like it, but I strongly recommend at least hitting it to see what your numbers are.

the new titleist 910fd is an option. larger head than the normal f, and weighted farther back in the head. It was made specifically for use off of the tee.

That is not correct. In fact, it's the opposite. The weight is not farther back, it is closer to the face in the 910fd.

But...it is a great 3 wood for the tee.

    • Revealing thread, there are varying "definitions" of what's mental and what's physical. I would have called game planning, green reading and just practicing effectively mental, along with just maintaining composure/managing pressure/stress. What's the essential difference between someone who just mindlessly bashes ball after ball at the range vs someone who practices with purpose? "The way I look at it in golf is that the mental game is a mechanism for fulfilling physical potential. Physical potential being a function of natural ability and effort put in through practice, instruction, conditioning, etc. Physical potential won’t automatically be transferred to the golf course in the form of performance. That is where a strong mental game steps in and allows the body to perform the tasks it has already been trained to do. In other words, the mental game bridges physical potential and physical performance. When faced with consequence on the golf course, the physical motion the body already knows how to perform can be hindered by doubt, fear, and anxiety. Our mind and body know how to physically execute the shot, and the mental game is required to protect that ability by warding off the potential doubt, fear or anxiety."
    • Today I came across to this video and just wanted to share it with you guys Her swing looks great! 
    • Welcome! I myself just found this place recently and have enjoyed my time here a lot. What a great place to be for golfers!
    • I would say it's more physical than mental. Though the latter definitely is a part of it. I've seen many times golfers getting too much in their mind and playing horrible. Of course you still need to learn how to swing properly, just mental strength definitely isn't enough to play well. 
    • It's weird, I'm really starting to doubt my own perception of things. i think every golfer in my group can swing differently (and slightly more often worse) under pressure. Amongst the 16-20 of us (and i think it's relevant we all have collegiate athletic experience and all within 4 years of age), these type of things seem prevalent to me: - 2 footers for $100 don't drop as often as 2 footers for nothing.
      - hard-6 vs easy-5 skews more towards the hard-6 during pressure holes/rounds
      - there are both more birdies as well more bogey+'s and penalties on "big" days vs a weekend outing (and we play stroke play only)
      - and i actually believe all of us, "generally" score worse on "big" days (say looking over at least a year period).  Me for example, I generally play well on "big" days, but my worst rounds of the last 10 years I know for a fact also correlates to "big" rounds, even if it doesn't happen very often. And for certain guys, it consistently works out bad for them, and vice versa.
