Drivers offer distance and the fairway wood gives the golfer precision in their shot with a little less distance, this is the main distinction between these clubs. Another difference between them is the length. A Fairway wood is ideal for control, they are designed with a greater loft, which won’t hit them as far but will keep the ball on line. This makes them perfect on holes that have a narrow landscape and either hazards or out of bounds, which you could easily hit into. Most commonly golfers will use a fairway wood in the short grass. A great place to use this them is long approach shots. How to buy the right fairway wood for you? This depends on what type of shots you want to take with the fairway wood. They are a great alternative to not only drivers but to 2,3, and 4 irons. A club with a lower center of gravity makes it easier to get the ball in the air and out of the fairway. The larger the clubhead the larger the sweet spot you have to hit and increase control and distance.
