Golf Fairway Woods

Let's learn about the different situations for when to use a fairway wood. We'll learn about the different types of fairway woods a golfer might have in the bag.

  • 3-Wood
  • 4-Wood
  • 5-Wood

Fairway Wood

A fairway wood is the second longest club and can be used on a tee shot or in the fairway, and rarely from the rough. A fairway wood hits a golf ball a little less distance than a driver does.


3-Wood

A 3-wood is a type of fairway wood that contains about 15 degrees of loft, depending on the make, and can be used on the tee box and in the fairway on long approach shots.


4-Wood

A 4-wood is a type of fairway wood that contains about 17 degrees of loft, depending on the make, and can be used on the tee box and in the fairway on long approach shots. A 4-wood will travel slightly shorter than a 3-wood because the club has more loft.


5-Wood

A 4-wood is a type of fairway wood that contains about 19 degrees of loft, depending on the make, and can be used on the tee box and in the fairway on long approach shots. A 5-wood will travel slightly shorter than a 4-wood because the club has more loft.
