I've always been told that if I can't hit the driver that I should get a 3 wood. So recently I went to get one but found a Cleveland DST 17 degree 4 wood that I hit better and farther than any 3 wood. Any one else have luck with a 4wood instead of the 3 wood? Shouldn't I be hitting the 3 farther?

I don't carry one but my wife does.    She had real problems getting any air under the ball, even off a tee.   We recently got her a 13.5* driver, and the extra height fixed her distance on drives.   Since she had the same problem multiplied off the deck with a 15* 3-wood, we got her a 17* 4-wood to replace it.   She has been having real good luck with the 4..

When it was the only club I had between my driver and 3 iron, I had a 4 wood and I loved it.  When I added a 19* hybrid, I was able to replace the 4 wood with a 15* 3 wood.

On paper, 3 woods go further than 4 woods, but the only one that I would find really odd is if you were hitting the Cleveland DST 3 wood (with the equivalent shaft) shorter than this one.  Either way, its not relevant ... you hit this one great and thats all that really matters.

You hit what you hit. A 4 wood hit on the screws will always go farther than a 3 wood that you hit fat or push or pull into the woods or water.

Heck, I've gone to a Ti 5 wood.

I do - G15 17degree. Works great, distance is basically the same for me as a 3 wood and I'm able to hit it from the fairway better than a 3 wood.

I love my 4W (I have the G15 as well). If you like the 4W, give a 7W a try as well.  They are a great combination, I switched to it from the more standard 3W/5W and much prefer it.

If it works, use it. I know people who carry only a 3 wood, because they cant a driver.

I have recently given up using hybrids because I just can not hit them worth a darn. I went and bout a 7 wood, which works for me.

What length shaft is on that 4w?

I am only 5' 4" and always looking for "shorter" clubs.  Especially since I have to shorten them anyway.

So far the shortest 4w in stock length I have found is the TM r11 4w which is 42.5".

i play a superfast 2.0 4W and I crush it off the tee.  I was hitting it 255, measued by gps in 45 degree weather last round..  i've hit a big cut around a tree 237 yds and rolled on to a par 5 green in 2.  I 3 jacked the goddamn putt though.

I built it to 42".  Also just answered your PM.

I carry a 4 wood in my bag at all times. On my vacation in Hilton Head I was doing horrible with my driver since I hadn't played in a long time so I switched to my 4 wood for tee shots. It has never done me wrong and every shot went dead straight. I know it's just a mental thing for me, but I love mine

    • This comment makes me think of Mid South #2. 😉 I assume you remember driving the green in fourball at 2017 Newport Cup.  Pretty sure that was a longer carry than this one lol. 
    • Just got home from Wisconsin.   Again, thank you @cipher and @iacas for setting this up and running this trip. I had a fantastic time and it was great to see most of you again and to meet some of you for the first time. The courses were amazing, and we could not have ask for better weather. The most rain we got was a few sprinkles today for like 3 minutes. 
    • Yes I know. We’re celebrating it.
    • Did you end up checking it out?
    • You know some people pay good money to be spectators at events like these. 😂. I have a friend who thinks I'm a slow player because I always get to the course after him, take two practice swings as part of my preshot routine, and use Aimpoint when putting what's m whereas he just hits and takes a look at his putt for a second or two before putting.  I don't think I'm a slow player but maybe i am 🤷‍♀️. That said, generally speaking, i don't have a family or anything i have a specific time that i have to get back for so a 4-4 5 hour round doesn't bother me as long as we're not stop, go, stop, go, stop, go.  If it feels like we're in rhythm then i generally won't be bothered bc the round won't feel like it takes a while.  I guess playing at public courses generally on weekends when you know it's going to be filled with ppl just makes me expect that a round won't be less than 4 hours.
