Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from elthrill who has had enough of his driver costing him strokes and is looking to replace it with a 3-wood. Rarely playing courses over 6,900 yards, elthrill is on the hunt for a 3-wood which is an “absolute bomber off the tee“, and our members give their suggestions for what models could work best for him.
Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.
- the bishop: “Strictly for use off the tee I’d be partial to the 2016 M1. I still have two of those heads and will likely never get rid of them. One of the best ever IMO.”
- puttingmatt: “Go get fit for a three wood, try all of three woods from various companies. I use the Tour Edge CBX 119 15 *. It’s long and versatile. Gives my driver a run for its money, not a whole lot of difference in total yards. Can look at 13* offerings, which could give you as long or longer distance than a lot of drivers. But with some patience, you should be able to find a good 3-wood to replace your driver.”
- Moxley: “Consider mini drivers, which are a mix of the 2 and typically play like a strong 3-wood. Knowing whether it’s the shaft length, loft or spin (or something else like just being a better fit) on the 3-wood that keeps it straighter would help you find something.”
- jol: “Callaway Epic Flash 3+ wood. Off the tee it is a rocket launcher, long and straight! My go-to club when I need to keep it on the fairway without sacrificing much distance.”
