Deep Face 5 Wood

4 posts in this topic

Looking for a deep (tall) faced 5 wood for a few holes on my course where 3 iron isn't enough, and driver is too much. I have a burner (07 I think) 3 wood already, but it's a bit too long when it's warm, and I'd link something taller. This will be used from the tee primarily, so I'm not concerned how it works off the fairway.

I'd prefer something from a season or two ago for the discounts.

Thanks!

Have you considered checking something out from Taylormade? You're already hitting a 3 wood... why not jump forward to a Burner 2.0 series? Or possibly even a Rocketballz wood?

I went looking for a Rocketballz driver and wound up hitting that driver, TM RBZ 3 wood, TM RBZ Stage 2 3 wood, TM RBZ 4 wood, and TM RBZ 7 wood. I was surprised that I knocked the 3 and 4 woods almost the exact distance and the 7 wood followed closely thereafter.

You might want to consider looking for something like a 7 wood... unless you think the face might be a little too steep for the launch angle.

Not meaning to ignore your question though, I'd hit a local pro shop or Golfsmith or other similar store close to you and check out the used club section. You should be able to pick up something that suits your needs, hasn't been hit too hard or often, and not pay full price.

It doesn't seem to match "high face" but the old TM Burner 2.0 drivers and fairways are awesome.  I have the 4W and love it.  Price point is good too.

You should check out the Mizuno F-60 5 wood its easily deep enough for the tee but shallow enough to hit off the deck and they can be had cheapish on ebay

    • I don't think that's what most people mean by playing ready golf.  If you and a slow-walking player both hit in the fairway and you hit farther, I agree it's rude to just walk quickly out, set up, and hit your ball.  Except for the oldest, slowest players, that player is almost certainly going to be trying to start a pre-shot routine while you're finishing yours.  And even if not, the point of ready golf is to make sure – assuming you're not stuck behind other groups – you play close to as fast as the slowest walking player in your group would solo, not to finish holes in sequence, fastest player to slowest player. For example, when playing with slow older players, both of us in the fairway, I might walk past the older players ball if there's a good tree line to walk along or the like, and post up near my ball's level while waiting for the slower player to hit, then have a quicker walk to my ball, with the hope being that I can go through my pre-shot and hit my shot in not much more time than it takes the slower player to watch his shot, put his club back, and walk up to where my ball is. Around the green I liberally play my ball if I'm ready well before anyone else even if I'm not farthest from the hole.  And like I said above, I think first ready tees off unless someone has birdied or better.  But between the tee and near green, I'm only playing out of turn when another player in my group has hit a really crappy shot and is off in the woods/grass looking for a ball, I'm not on or near that player's line to the hole/chip out, and I can easily go ahead and play my ball before the other player will be (even really that close to) ready to hit.

    • Crazy, I stayed at Orange Lake Resort back in 2001.  I had unlimited miniature golf for the entire week, I think I played 54 rounds or something during my week stay. I love their full golf attire, shoes included, I wore a bathing suit when I played.
    • Yup. Players are authorized to ride a cart during their round(s) only when there are shuttles (as mentioned in the article) or to be taken back to re-hit a ball under stroke and distance penalties. Basically, you have to walk the golf course once, and that includes any side trips like going to the restroom, going to get a drink from a neighboring hole's concessions area, etc.  
    • Seems like the kind of thing that a young kid would start doing when trying to swing really fast. Seems like it would be very hard to learn how to do this and keep your swing in control. My guess is that Justin Thomas started doing this as a kid, and it's just part of his swing now.
