Fairway woods vs. rescues
Most people will have both fairway woods and hybrids in their bags but, with the line between the two more blurry than ever, what should you be carrying?
Are you giving yourself the best chance of a good hole when you pull your driver out on the tee? Finding the fairway sets you up for a par or better, while missing it makes that a lot harder. It really is that simple, which makes that original question even more important.
If there's one common problem we see amongst golfers we teach, it's to do with their angle of attack. When hitting an iron, we want to strike down on the ball to create the ideal launch conditions, which often leads to a divot being taken after impact.
However, with a driver in hand, it couldn't be more different as we want to sweep up on the ball. That's where this simple drill comes in. By placing a headcover (or similar object) a grip’s length in front of your ball, it encourages this upward angle of attack as you try to avoid hitting the headcover - ideal to the launch the ball high and far off the tee.
Another great way to get your driving on track is, surprisingly enough, getting the right driver in your hands. TaylorMade’s latest drivers, the Stealth range, help you with this by putting distance-generating technologies in several models specifically designed to fit your individual swing. Whether you're wanting improved accuracy, greater distance or maximum forgiveness, having a driver geared-up to complement you makes it much easier to find fairways consistently.
