hey everyone!

Recently decided to drop the callaway 3 and 5 wood for a 4 wood.  I like the G15 and the Superfast 2.0.

Didn't like the white crown on the TM at first, but it's a non-issue for me now.  So really it just comes down to forgiveness and what's going to be more versitile.

I love my current 3 wood of the tee.  But seems like I'm 50/50 on making good contact off the fairway (i think it's because it is so damn big and hard to get at the ball unless it is sitting up on the fairway and sitting on a flat piece of turf).  I also love my current 5 wood off the fairway and even sometime out of the light rough. I think it is due to the sole design.  But distance between the two clubs seems to be pretty even, unless I make good contact with the 3 wood.   So....i came up with the idea to split the difference and get a 4 wood.


So...the most important thing for me is something that is going to be forgiving and allow me to make good contact...

Thoughts between the two models??

You should try to hit them somewhere, for sure.  I recently replaced my fairway woods and tried out a bunch.  The two you mention were my final two choices.  The TM was a beast off the tee, I was really crushing it.  However, I had no luck hitting it from the ground.  I ended up with not only the G15 4wood but the 7wood as well.  Great clubs, that really work for me.

Thanks, Rasky.  I found the same thing.  I bought the TM because I liked the feel of it in the store.  Took it to the range and had the same experience.  just couldn't get at it on the ground, and when I did....felt like ball dispersion was pretty erratic.  When solid contact was made....it was LONG.  But i just didn't like the inconsistent dispersion (both left to right, and high-low trajectory).   I think this could have been due to the VERY closed club face position of the club.  Never liked that.

So...I returned and got the G15 yesterday. Took it to the range last night and BINGO....this is my club.  Love everything about it.  Long, forgiving, "traditional" looking at address, consist ant ball flight.  Great club.  I think I'll be very happy with it!

Some of the problem with the TM woods maybe because the stock shafts are 3/4"-1" longer than most other brands. The extra length gives the little extra distance off the tee, but could also be causing the problems off the turf.

Just a thought

I absolutely love my G15 4 wood.  It's a monster off the tee and a beast off the deck.  My stock shot is a push-draw but I find I can hit a fade with little difficulty as well.  I always had trouble with my fairway woods (Diablo 3 and 5) until I tried the G15.

Yep, G15 4 wood is amazing.  If I can't hit a fairway wood off the deck, which was the case for me all the time with fairway woods prior to the G15, it's useless to me.  Only cause I can't leave well enough alone, I've been trying out a K15 3 wood as an alternative to the G15 4 wood, but I can't decide which one I like better.  K15 is longer off the tee, but I don't seem to hit it as consistently as the G15 4 wood.  Both are outstanding clubs though, and I really don't need to try out other fairway woods for a good long while.

Haven't hit the Superfast so I can't comment on that but here's my thoughts on the G15 (which I love!): http://thesandtrap.com/b/clubs/ping_g15_fairway_wood_review

    • PGA2K21 is good. I play it on the PS4. 
    • Day 83 - Spent more time filming swings. It seems I’m correct at A2 or A3, getting both to be what I’m looking for isn’t working. Have more work to do before sending in more swings. 
    • Rule 2 - The Course Notes as follows. These are notes, not a recap or a summary or anything like that. 2.1 - Course Boundaries and Out of Bounds The Committee has to decide where boundaries are. 2.2 - Defined Areas of the Course There are five: general area the teeing area the green penalty area bunker If the ball is in two areas, it's treated as lying in the general area last, or in the order: penalty area, bunker, putting green. 2.3 - Objects or Conditions that can Interfere with Play Just links to other rules for loose impediments, movable obstructions, abnormal course conditions, GUR, temporary water, or immovable obstructions. No relief for boundary objects. 2.4 - No Play Zones Must take relief when ball, stance, area of swing interfered with here can be an ACC or a penalty area
    • Pm back at ya Piz.  This should be fun.  Thank you Adam as well.  We’ll have to keep comparing notes next spring when the weather gets better.  
    • Last lesson of the year today 12/2: Full swing stuff - backswing and tempo were much improved which is what I’ve been working on so happy with that. We discussed the block fade miss caused by open club face. My transition is aggressive which pulls the club face open when the handle of the club starts moving too quickly (or something like that). Quick fix was to have a feel for the club head moving and widening the arc before the handle starts going. Did some work on this at about 75% full speed and then added speed back as I got the hang of it. Putting work - did a putter fitting and when selecting the alignment aid design, I learned that they don’t matter at all for how I aim. Apparently no matter where the target was, I tended to line my aim up around the spatial configuration of the putting area (e.g., aiming parallel to the edge of the putting surface, or a nearby wall). Once I was aware of this behavior and able to consciously overcome it, my initial aim was really good. When I scheduled the fitting with my teacher I had my mind made up on something from the Edel product line, but I tried one of those ridiculous looking LAB putters and it was undeniably good for me, so that’s what I ended up going with.
