125-235 yards

Why do I hit my 3 wood further than my driver?

Players who hit their 3- or 5-wood as far or longer than their driver are typically using too little loft with the driver for their clubhead speed. You know, it’s a funny thing with the driver and its loft compared to the other clubs in the bag.

Why do I top my 3 wood?

Typically, a ball is topped because the club has not gone far enough down towards the ball or you catch the ball on the way up, instead of at the bottom point. A lot of things can cause this to happen: A club that’s too short. An awkward stance.

Should you tee up a 3 wood?

First, a 3 wood is designed to hit the ball off the ground. So don’t tee it up like you would a driver. This should give you the best chance to hit the ball on the descent of the swing arc but not too steep. When you tee up a 3 wood, you want it just slightly above the ground.

Should you take a divot with a fairway wood?

Both types of swing styles are effective, but if you are having trouble hitting your fairway woods high enough or topping the ball, you should try taking a divot. If you want to take a divot while hitting a fairway wood, it is recommended that you move the golf ball position to more center of your stance.

Can you hit a 5-wood on fairway?

A 5-wood is used by golfers who need to hit the ball between 180 and 240 yards, depending on the skill level of the golfer. High-handicap players generally use a 5-wood to hit second shots from the fairway on par 5s and to reach long par 3s.

Where should the ball be when hitting a 3-wood?

For a fairway wood the ball should be just inside your left heel (for right handers – the opposite rules apply for left handers) to help you create the shallow angle of attack needed to sweep the ball off the the turf, or the tee, at the lowest point of your swing’s arc.

What your divot says about your swing?

Your divot is either going to point to the right, to the left or straight. For right-handed players, if it’s pointing to the left, it means your swing path is coming from outside to inside (a path that produces a slice). If it’s pointing right, you’re swinging inside to out (a path that produces a hook).

Why am I taking large divots?

The main cause of deep divots in the short game is overactive hands and wrists during the takeaway. Unfortunately, many amateur players get this wrong, instead using their hands alone to swing the club. When that happens, the club head becomes elevated too high off the ground, and a steep forward swing is inevitable.

Why do pro golfers always take a divot?

Why do golfers take a divot? The majority of shots that are played with an iron or wedge will scrape off a thin layer of turf where the ball was resting. The reason is because these clubs are designed to strike the ball on a descending path.

Do pros take divots?

Modern pros like Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler definitely come at the ball on a steep angle and produce big divots, but that isn’t the only way to do it. Tom Watson has done pretty well picking the ball clean, and he has had the same style through the revolution in equipment.
