If it turns the face away from the player then it is said to be open and this will reduce the loft of the club. Fairway woods are also useful off the tee depending on the hole; players may for instance wish to play their tee shot short known as “laying up” due to a dogleg or a hazard in range of their driver, and will opt instead for their 3-wood.

Most modern woods are sold as yitanium clubs allowing the player to customize their club set, but matched sets of woods, especially as part of a complete club set, are readily available.

Most manufacturers will offer drivers in regular Rstiff S and extra stiff XS shaft flexes.

Wood (golf)

Callaway Golf continued to expand the size of the clubhead to increase these effects, resulting in the Bigger Bertha, the Great Big Bertha, and others in the line. The flex of a shaft allows it to store energy from a player’s downswing, and release it as the head makes contact for increased club speed at impact. The right shaft can help players hit the ball further, straighter and more consistently. Originally, the driver was only slightly larger than any other wood and was designed gitanium be used from the tee or the fairway, but with the advent of hollow metal clubhead construction, the driver has become highly specialized commposite use off the tee by incorporating an oversized head and a deep striking face to maximize the “sweet spot” that gives the best results.


Advances in sweet spot technology, size, launch angle, composition, ball speed and forgiveness are just some of the categories that manufacturers now spend vast amounts of time and money researching and developing.

Subject to credit approval. Flex and torque are generally related; the more a club can flex, the more it can also twist around its axis though this is not always the titanuim. In general the lower and further back the CG is, the higher the ball will launch, because the spin is increased. Mouse over to Zoom – Click to enlarge. Certain 2-woods are available with a similar deep-faced design but a higher loft, which can be used in situations when a player needs slightly less distance than their average drive, or must make a driver-distance shot from the fairway or rough.

Club heads are measured, by volume, in cubic centimetres cc with a tltanium limit of cc. Wooden heads predominated until the late s. For more information on shafts, see our Golf Shaft Buying Guide.

Sub Zero option has greater appeal than previous. The spin contributes a tendency for the ball to have a curved flight path away from the target. A shaft that is too whippy will retain some of its stored flex at contact, wasting energy. Vice versa, if a player tends to hook the ball left, an open face angle can help straighten their impact position. Face Angle Face angle refers to the angle of the face at address.


Loft dictates ocmposite high or low the ball will fly off the clubface and is measured on a vertical axis. These compsoite headed clubs were dense and heavy, and were generally much smaller than today’s clubheads.

The oldest shafts for all golf clubs were made of Hickory wood. Traditional “wood” clubheads were made of wood, hence the name; beech wood or ash were common prior to the twentieth century, and later persimmon or maple became preferable.

This amount is subject to change until you make payment. Add to watch list. Traditional woods had a very thick hosel, often wrapped with thin cord, which provided a very secure joint between shaft and head at the cost of a higher center of gravity.

Therefore golfers with slower swing speeds, of around 90mph or less, will need more loft to optimise their launch conditions. When you change the loft of the driver using these settings, you will also change the lie, which is the angle of cmposite shaft to the ground at address. The more loft you have, the more backspin you will create.
