When & why: fairway woods
It’s never easy to know when you should be pulling out your fairway wood, but we’re here with a solution that makes the decision less painful.
Did you watch last week’s AIG Women’s Open? You won’t find a better example of the importance of course management than Carnoustie, and with the extra roll on firm fairways even great drives can go awry. It might be time to take your hybrids out...
Since hybrids roll out less after landing, you’ve got a much better chance of it staying on the short grass. You want to be giving yourself a look at pars & birdies, rather than straggling to bogeys, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise that a playing from the fairway – rather than a bunker, water or the trees - gives you what you want.
You might not be chasing driver distance with your hybrids, but you still don’t want to be playing your second shot miles away from the green. That’s where the brilliance of Titleist’s TSi1 hybrids comes in: an ultra-lightweight & streamlined design to give you plenty of distance, even without a fast swing.
But, while we like having that distance, it’s still important to find the fairways. So, maybe it’s worth considering the TSi2 hybrid option; engineered with a focus on optimal MOI (read 'forgiveness') and low centre of gravity for a high, more forgiving launch that's perfect when hitting into greens.
If you're in the market for new hybrids, we couldn't recommend these highly enough. Just pop by the pro shop or send us a message if you'd like to give them a try.
