Fairway woods are the ideal golf club for targeting long distance drives. They achieve amazing results on the fairway, while also playing well from the tee. The smaller head size when compared to drivers means the shot precision is a little more skill-based, however the shape of the fairway woods are similar to a driver and they offer more loft for a faster golf ball lift-off.
Fairway woods range from a 3+ Fairway Wood with a loft similar to that of a high launch driver, all the way through to a fifteen wood. Although not many manufacturers make anything higher than a seven wood, three and five woods are the most common golf fairway woods available and are the most effective.
