Find the Right Fairway Woods for Your Game
If you want to play at your highest level, you need to have at least one well-fitted fairway wood in your bag.

How to Find the Right Golf Wood
Fairway woods come in multiple different lofts, with each designed to give you optimum distance at different ranges from the hole. Lofts with lower numbers give you more distance, while higher lofts give you less. Which you choose depends on the situation you're facing on the course. A 3 wood provides longer distance, so it's great for the 2nd swing on a par 5, or it can even be used as your driver on a par 3. A 5 or 7 wood, on the other hand, excels at approach shots where you want to avoid overshooting the green. When buying a new golf wood, our advice is to match the club to what situations you'll most often face on the course. And remember that many golfers choose to carry multiple different fairway woods with them in their bag, so they have the best club for the shot.
When purchasing a new golf fairway wood, you'll also want to make sure that the shaft's flexibility matches your playing style. The rules for flexibility match those for drivers: if you're a skilled golfer with a very high swing speed, you likely need a stiffer shaft. If you are more of a work-in-progress golfer with a lower swing speed, a more flexible shaft is much more likely to deliver accurate and powerful swings. The following is a list of what stiffness you should use based on your average drive distance:
- Less than 180 yards (165 meters), use ladies flex.
- Between 181 to 200 yards (166 to 183 meters), use senior flex.
- Between 200 to 235 yards (183 to 215 meters), use regular flex.
- Between 236 to 275 yards (216 to 251 meters), use stiff flex.
- More than 275 yards (251 meters), use extra-stiff flex.
