Choosing the right club is essential to making the perfect shot. Fairway woods are the only choice when getting closer to the green requires more loft than a driver and more distance than an iron can provide. Technological advancements from top brands like Callaway, Cleveland, TaylorMade, Titleist, and more offer essential innovations on golf woods. Innovations that help you make the right choice and the right shot.
Fairway Wood FAQ
How is a driver different from a fairway wood?
A fairway wood has a higher loft and shorter shaft than a driver and is generally used when there’s still a large distance to the green where irons wouldn’t be long enough to reach.
Why is loft important with a fairway wood?
The loft on a fairway wood is usually a few degrees higher than a driver, making it easier to get the ball elevated without losing a lot of distance. Fairway woods will still have a lower loft than other clubs in your bag like hybrids, irons, or wedges, making them ideal for longer distance shots to the green.
What kind of distances are fairway woods used for?
As with any other club, the distance you get out of your fairway wood will be highly dependent on your swing speed. Fairway woods can be used anywhere from 150 yards (very low swing speed) to 250 yards (very fast swing speed). You’ll get less distance from higher numbered/lofted fairway woods. For example, your 5 wood won’t travel as far as your 3 wood.
What is the cost range of Fairway woods?
Fairway woods range from the low hundreds to almost $600, with the average falling between $200 to 300 dollars.
If I buy a pre-owned name brand fairway wood, how can I be assured that it is in good condition?

HB TURBO FAIRWAY
If you're a distance chaser, this may not be the fairway wood for you. If like me, you want one that is high, straight, and maybe a little shorter than your playing partners, this may be for you.

Honma TWXP-1 Fairway 5 wood
Upon receipt I took this wood to the driving range. It is a sweet club which added approximately 20 yards compared to my old 5 wood. Nice grip and feel.

Great Fairway Woods
Hit about 30 balls on the range with a friends ZX 5 Wood and ordered the 3 wood & 5 wood for myself. $30 Cheaper than the "Big 4" and as good or better looking at address. First Srixon product I have ever purchased and now it has made me take a look at the ZX5 & ZX7 irons.

Rogue 3 wood is the best club in my bag
The Rogue 3 wood is such a great club. It is so forgiving and has added so much distance. This club has given me some opportunities to hit the green (or get really close) on some par 5's. I love it!
