I never was able to hit a fairway wood off the...Fairway.. I never used a 3wd or 5 or 7 wood. I just couldn't hit them..

So for years I have been just using my 3 iron or 2 iron for my long shots. I would of course be short but it was just allot safer for me.

That being said about 4 months ago, my friend let me use his hybrid and I must say I was awesome with it.. I went out and bought this


It was a cheap 50.00 club and I was going to just reshaft it. But I must say I don't even need to waste my time with the shaft because the stock one suits me just fine..

So I carry my Driver, hybrid, 2 Iron, 4-9 iron, PW,56 Cleveland, 53 Vokey Spin milled and a putter. Thats it..

I use my hybrid as a 3wood ( thinking about getting a super low degree Hybrid next ) and it works fine, I hit it 205-215 yards dead straight.

I have no use for a 3wood..

Anyone else with me??

or am I alone?

i have an 18° 2H i use as my "3 wood" but im also about to buy a new stronger hybrid to hit off the tee. so far (from my research) the best options for us are the 14° 4dx 15° ping g10 and the 16° baffler. im gonna try to demo them all this weekend and make a purchase. as of now im leaning towards the ping g10. 3 woods are to long for me and i cant hit them off the deck either so im goin the hybrid route too. my new stronger hybrid will be used mainly off the tee because my course has a lot of tight tee shots.

3w is my savior, couldn't get around the course without. Bails me out all the time when I'm hitting my driver poorly. 15 deg Cleveland '06 Launcher, love it.

I am now using a Taylor Made 14 degree Rescue hybrid instead of my 3 wood. I hit it 220-240 yards from a tee, fairway, or the rough. I love the club. I just added a Nickent 3dx 3 and 4 hybrid to replace my 3 and 4 iron. Wish I had these clubs years ago.

The hybrids come in as low as 14 or 15 degrees which would give you @ 4 wood equivalent. I think the shafts are shorter which may work in your favor over a fairway wood.

That being said, I love my 3 wood from the fairway and hit a 240 yard shot onto a par 5 Sunday. It is a great club but it does take a consistent swing to get good results. I never leave home without it.

Got rid of my 3 wood a year and a half ago, and replaced it with a 5 wood with a 3 wood shaft. Hit it almost as far, more control and much easier to hit off the deck for me. Off the tee I have good control with it, and my yardage with it fits my home course well for the holes I have to use it on.

I have used a 3 and 5 wood for years and I would never think about taking them out of my bag. They are my go to clubs when im hitting my driver poorly, and the loss of distance is not as penal as hitting a hybrid or long iron.

And your right about Nicklaus clubs. His high end offerings suprise alot of people.

i replaced a 5 wood with a 2H and i hit it longer and more consistant.

I only carry a 5 wood. I hit it the same as my old 3 wood so why bother carrying two clubs that go the same distance.

I wish they would carry a low loft degree, I want a 15 bad!

My buddy and I have been talking about this very question. I feel that I just need to practice more with the three wood, as my buddy is thinking about moving to a high lower lofted hybrid.

I havent carried a 3 wood for the past few months and have been fine without it. If I ever find a 3 wood that I am confident with I will consider putting one back in the back but for now I will just stick to the 1 & 2 hybrids I carrying

My three wood gets swapped for a low lofted hybrid when the conditions suit (Three wood goes in when it is needed off the tee while a low lofted hybrid goes in when its needed off the deck.).

Well, I love my 3-Wood, admittedly. I just started hitting it well off the fairway, as opposed to just off the tee. But there are pros on TOUR who don't carry a 3-Wood, IIRC. I believe Bubba Watson is one of them.

It's probably the 9" between your ears thats not letting you hit fairway woods.

Try some different ones with a positive attitude. You can never hit a club that you think you can't hit. Might just be the club.
