Golf Drivers

Golf drivers are the largest club in a golfer's bag, designed to hit the ball the farthest distance off the tee. They feature a large clubhead, a long shaft, and a low loft angle to maximize distance. Golf drivers typically range in loft angle from 8 to 13 degrees, with lower lofted drivers producing lower ball flights and more distance, while higher lofted drivers produce a higher ball flight and more spin for better control. 

Golfers choose drivers based on their skill level, swing speed, and playing style. Modern golf drivers feature advanced technology such as adjustable weights, movable hosels, and multi-material construction, which can be customized to suit the individual golfer's needs and preferences.

Golf Fairway Woods

Golf fairway woods are clubs that are designed for long-range shots on the fairway or from the rough. They have a slightly smaller clubhead than drivers, a longer shaft than irons, and a higher loft angle. Golfers use fairway woods to hit shots from the fairway or rough that require distance and accuracy. Fairway woods are typically numbered from 3 to 11, with lower numbers providing more distance and higher numbers providing more loft and easier ball launch.

Modern fairway woods feature advanced technology such as adjustable hosels, weighting systems, and multi-material construction, which can be customized to suit the individual golfer's needs and preferences. Golfers of all skill levels use fairway woods as a versatile club that can help improve their game.

Golf Hybrid Clubs - Rescue Clubs

Golf hybrid clubs, also known as rescue clubs, are a cross between a fairway wood and an iron. They have a smaller clubhead than a fairway wood, a shorter shaft than a fairway wood but longer than an iron, and a higher loft angle than an iron. Hybrid clubs are designed to replace long irons, providing golfers with a more forgiving and easier-to-hit option. They are versatile clubs that can be used from the fairway, rough, or tee box. Hybrid clubs are numbered like irons, with the most common options being 2, 3, 4, and 5.

Modern hybrid clubs feature advanced technology such as adjustable hosels, weighting systems, and multi-material construction, which can be customized to suit the individual golfer's needs and preferences. Golfers of all skill levels use hybrid clubs as a versatile and forgiving club that can help improve their game.

You ask? we answer:

What woods should a golfer have?

The better your swing, the less forgiving club you require whereas the more your swing needs work, the better off you are with a more forgiving club design. A modern set of golf clubs typically consists of two or three woods, a 1-driver, #3 fairway wood and possibly either #5 or #7 wood

What loft should my golf driver have?

Typically the average loft for a Mens Golf Driver is 10.5 degrees and for Ladies it's 13 degrees.  

Why are Golf Drivers available in other loft options?

The loft you choose on your Golf Driver will depend upon your golfing ability and the flight characteristics you are trying to achieve.  As a very vague rule of thumb a 9 degree driver will fly lowwer than a 10.5 degree version and a 12 degree driver will fly higher than a 10.5 degree driver. However there are other factors which determine the peformance of a golf club, swing speeds, angle of attack, weight of chaft, flex of shaft, biis of the head set up etc. Please do all us on 01622 891675 if you wish to discuss your golf driver set up or alternatively book a face to face custom fit at our Performance Fitting Centre here in Kent, England: Book a custom fitting appointment  

Why are golf shafts available in different flexes?

The faster you swing a golf club the stiffer the shaft you require. This helps to control the clubhead through the ball and enables you to strike the ball woth the correct dynamic face angle. Shafts are available in Ladies Flex, Lightweight/Senior Flex, Regular, Stiff and Extra Stiff. 

What is the loft of a #3 Fairway Wood?

The average loft of a #3 fairway wood is 15 degress for Men and 17 degrees for Ladies. Golfers can also purchase a #3 Fairway Wood with stronger lofts for a lower flight.  

How often should you replace your golf woods?

A leading brand named golf driver, fairway wood or hybrid club should last for about 150 to 200 rounds. If you have a fast swing speed you may find the replacement cycle to be shorter considering the stronger impact made every time you strike a ball.

Do I need a #3 wood as a beginner?

Our advice for a beginner would be yes, make sure you have a 3 wood in your golf bag as you may find it easier to use from the tee when you first start playing, due to the more generous loft of the head than a driver. It also has a shorter shaft than a driver which also makes it easier to use.
