Imagine yourself playing a long par five. You just hit a perfect drive down the middle of the fairway and your looking at a good chance to score well on the hole. After approaching your ball, you realize that you are still too far away from the green to hit your hybrid but you might be able to get there with your three wood. Do you feel confident hitting your three wood off of the fairway or would you lay up with an iron instead?
If you feel like you wouldn’t have a chance of making it to the green with your wood, ask yourself why that is. The fairway wood is the longest club in the golf bag that we typically hit from the ground. The length of the fairway wood combined with the size of the clubhead can make it difficult for amateur golfers to make solid contact with a ball that’s on the ground.
