3 Wood

9 posts in this topic

If you have to pick a 3 wood that would stay in your bag for the next 10 years, which one would it be? Which one is the best right now in your own opinion? Thanks

I wouldn't worry about what club can I buy now and keep in my bag 10 years out. I would buy a good 3 wood and shaft that fits my swing and I can hit now and work into a little so as I improve it still works for me. Maybe you should think about a used 3 wood in very good to excellent condition or maybe mint and never hit at all, they can be found if you do a little surfing for models 1 -3 years old and then worrry about what works 10 years from now about 9 years from now. I have an adams fast 10 3 wood and it works just fine, I'm sure most people have a 3 wood they are happy with so pick a major brand and if you can try it fine otherwise do some research on the net. one thing is for sure whatever you pick you need to practice practice practice with it till you become good with it.

For me, it's the TM Burner I have right now. I've never been very consistent with a 3w until I bought this one. It's the only one I've ever had I could hit both off the fairway and the tee with semi predictable results. I think I hit it 5 times today during my round and every shot was "good enough". With others I've had I'm all over the place from the fairway to the point I never hit them. I tried this one because I got a great deal on it as a mint used model from EW and it just fits me.

Honestly it all comes down to the shaft and feel and weight of the club head.

For me it's my R11s TP with Fubuki shaft.

You can read my review on that.

It all depends on what you're looking for in your 3 wood, as said in the first response, don't look for a club that you want to keep for 10 years.  If you look for longevity before playability you're putting yourself in a tough position.  I've been carrying the same Callaway Big Bertha Fairway woods for damn near 8 years now and still play them.  I never intended to keep them so long but they play well and are still in great shape.  If I were you I'd go out and hit a few different brands and figure out what you like and get one fitted to your liking.  If it lasts 10 years that's great, if not then you can always look back at it and say that you got the proper club for you at the time.

Take a look on Ebay. I just picked a Cobra S2 3 wood for 20$ plus shipping. Never hit the thing, but at that price, I'm willing to take a chance. You might find a similar deal. If you're not sure how old it is, check the PGA Value guide , it'll at least tell you when it was released.

Good advice, in regards to buying from Ebay!

OP I would hit a few a woods and see what you like and then try purchasing it online, you should find a much better deal online then you will at your local golf shop.

    • Just a typo. Worth reading the article though.
    • My goalsfor the year are three fold but they all have the number 50. Between April 15 and October 15. 1. Play 50 rounds  2. Driving Range Practice 50 times 3. Dedicated putting/chipping session 50 times To get me in the spirit of things I'm reading a book on Father Son Tom Morris and The Greatest Game Ever Played.   I'm going to be buying this putter because I have a hand tremor, this putter was designed for that which should help my game astronomically.      https://www.biomechsports.com/golf/   Last year I also started dialing in my wedge game by buying a Cleveland 52 56 and 60 degree wedge.  If you have never used a 60 degree wedge you have to try it .  It has changed my short game incredibly.  I also have a good teacher to go to so here's hoping for a great season.   Join me me on my quest for 50.
    • So today I was luck enough to play golf in February in Wisconsin. I changed my irons, 3w, and hybrid going into this season.  I haven't posted much since October that will be changing.  My wife and I bought a house which is a awesome yet a pain in the ass all at the same time.  On Halloween (my birthday) our furnace wouldn't work and on christmas eve a big piece of ice fell off our roof and smashed our A/C unit.   Those issues plus some other remodeling has kept me off TST and completely away from golf.  I played in a scramble on 10/23/16.  Haven't picked up a club until Saturday since that outing (well except to move them from our apartment to our house). I will hopefully be playing a similar amount as last year and working on improving my swing.  I will be getting a updated swing on here once we get some more good weather.  It looks like it will be back into the 30's in a few days. This was my round today. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/Jakester23/round/1336229 I felt pretty good other than a few swings.  Its pretty cool to get 2 rounds of golf in already this year. 
    • We've discussed how bogus the "timing" thing is in other threads… but it doesn't take a genius to figure out that a few mm swinging at 80 MPH or whatever is not going to amount to much "time" to "square" the clubface. Offset works because it tends to make people aim the clubface to the left. They line up the toe and the hosel, and the clubface points left.
    •   Haven't done this in a while... here's my current swing with 6 iron Haven't kept a legit handicap, but first three rounds this year have been +3, +4, +2   what i'm working on: 1. shortening my backswing in order to stay more connected going forward 2. more side tilt in the downswing/getting the bottom of my swing forward to eliminate that unsightly flippy action and lower ball flight 3. eliminating the early extension just before impact... which should straighten itself out once I take care of #2.   any advice appreciated gents!
