just to think out of the box...ever consider teeing off using fairway wood rather than driver ?

the last game i have, i found 12 fairway, excluding all par 3 holes, i only miss 1 fairway, and that is the only time i use my driver....btw, my FW and driver distance are equally short...haha

Why should the fairway wood be a better choice? Today's drivers are bigger, with a bigger sweetspot.

Wouldn't it be easier to hit than a fairway wood. Does that 4-5* difference in loft between your driver and FW make that much difference in shot accuracy??



Good question, master....
Honestly, I have no idea at all....
It seems like a driver, with bigger sweet spot, bigger face should be easier, but it just dun happen to me...maybe the loft diff does make a difference...

Or maybe someone with better knowledge can help to explain, at least as of now, I'm more comfortable and confident teeing off using 3fd than using driver...keke

The shorter shaft might explain it ... also, if you hit offline with a club that goes a shorter distance, then your left/right variation is also less ...

That being said, I personally find my driver easier to hit than a 3 wood off a tee, just looking at that huge head gives me more confidence ... hitting it straight is another story though

Maybe It's because snowy doesn't use a Nike driver.

I tend to agree with bro Derek. The shorter the shaft the easier it is to hit. Very Happy

Thanks for the useful feedback folks.

As it turns out, the issue is now moot. I appreciate the recommendations, insights and comments nonetheless Smile

hi bro

my tee off sucks lah...3 wood so far is doing ok for me and i'm happy as long as it find more than 50% fairway, i doubt my driver can do that..haha !!!...i might be considering a 2 wood for tee off, just to experiment...ideally it will be good if it's a nike 2 wood...haha !!!

the krank is going out of my bag soon...keke

I hear that the 9064 is better than the Fast 12.

actually my initial intention is just to offer an alternative, as i find 3 wood are more forgiving off the tee rather than driver, and finds more fairway, even though it might lose a bit of distance...

i'm also amaze to see how this 3 wood discussion has evolve....haha !!

Have not had time to try them both out side by side, hit the fast 12 a few balls with a LM. similiar figures.

Can't recall but I remember hearing that the Fast 12 wasn't all that great (in comparison to the 9064). I've not tried the Fast 12 so can't give any personal feedback though I do like the 9064.

Any thoughts? Ping G20 or Titleist 910D2, in terms of getting the ball in the middle of the fairway? Dispersion ahead of distance.

everything depends on how you swing.

But Golf Digest gave G20 a Gold mark and its the Editor's choice.
So I guess its the Best in the field.

And here in my country, Ive hit it 3x in the range. Not bad.

I tried out the G20 on the Proto K Stiff shaft on Saturday and loved it. It feels really nice but the only downside was the size of the head. Found it to be really big vs. the 9064LS which is in my bag now. That said, the feel of the G20 was nice. Crisp and quite forgiving Smile

Now I wanna go test the 910D2 Wink

Put the G20 on a 52" Shaft. The head will become smaller.
