Woods Golf Clubs & Fairway Wood Reviews

Reaching the par-5s in two is my first priority when it comes to my fairway wood. A close 2nd is hitting the green from 200 yards out from the rough. And finally when you have a wood in your bag that you have tremendous confidence with, I like to use it off of the tee for those tight driving holes or the first tee jitters.

Thanks to technology, woods have become a lot easier to hit. The main thing I look at is the loft and the shaft. Be choosey and make sure you get something that fits your ability and fills you full of confidence.

Here are a few of my recommendations:

High Handicappers – Pick out something with a fairly large clubhead, but not too big. My dad recently got the Nike SQ Machspeed and he loves it. It has a square head like the driver, but it’s more streamlined. I’d recommend a high loft like 19 or 21 degrees. The Callaway FT-IZ is another good choice. The triangular shape is easy on the eyes and gives the club tremendous forgiveness.

Middle to Low Handicappers – Pick something that is more compact and workable but still forgiving. I like the TaylorMade R9 for an adjustable clubhead and the pull face construction. The sharp shooters will like the Titleist 909F3. It has a small but deep face. The Mizuno MP Titanium is a gorgeous club as well. It has a more penetrating ball flight and is the best driver substitute of all the woods in the category.

Ping G10 5-Wood w/ Graphite Shaft

Men’s Fairway Golf 142cc Club Head RH & LH

Ping G10 5-Wood w/ Graphite Shaft | Men’s Fairway Golf 142cc Club Head RH & LH

The G10 5-wood from Ping has a low profile and a longer-than-average head from heel to toe. This design is reminiscent of the original Orlimar fairway woods from the late '80s.

While more effective in the hands of a skilled player, this is a club with good performance characteristics, ...





Mizuno F60 Fairway Wood

Men’s Titanium Teardrop Golf Club w/ High Launch

Mizuno F60 Fairway Wood | Men’s Titanium Teardrop Golf Club w/ High Launch

When you think of notable fairway woods, Mizuno is not a name that often comes to mind -- at least not the same way it does about their player irons. However, they do make fairway woods, and the F60 is one of those entries.

Available in 3-wood (13.5 & 15 ...
