Straight & Easy to hit
January 24, 2015
Works great off both the tee and the fairway. Its lower MOI and center of gravity make it easier to hit off the fairway than other 3 woods. It has more of a rounded bottom that makes it easier to hit off tight lies. I have the matching CG Black 5-wood that has been a fantastic fairway wood, which is what made me look at the CG Black 3W. I used this CG Black 3W to replace my Cleveland Launcher 3W, which I have had trouble hitting consistently. Cleveland CG black line of woods are great. I play this new 3W more from the fairway than I do the tee, since I hit driver from most tee-boxes due to the length of holes I'm playing. It gets the ball airborne much easier than the 3W Launcher and it is easier to hit straight and keep the ball in the fairway than did the Launcher. I have a single digit handicap and score better when I keep the ball in the fairway, even if I sacrifice distance sometimes. This CG black 3W seems to give me the same distance as the Launcher 3W.
Pros:Easy to hit off both the fairway and tee. Easier to hit a straight shot and keep the ball in the fairway. Easy to hit off a tight lie, especially on our short brown grass, Bermuda fairways in the wintertime.
