Best fairway woods 2022: What’s going in my bag? 

What’s going in my bag?

I’m not going to hide the fact that the 3-wood is not my favourite club in the bag.

In fact, in recent years, I have been known to carry three or four hybrids just to avoid having to put one in play. It is evident though that the larger club head is much better for distance which really helps when trying to reach long par-5s in two.

I put the Titleist TSi3 in play late last season as it perfectly bridged the gap between wood and hybrid for me. The small compact club head really suited my eye, I found it versatile off a wide variety of lies, and I found myself reaching for it more and more out on the golf course.

The distance is very impressive and I found it very consistent off the deck. However, I found the off-centre strikes to be quite penal, especially off the tee.

The Cobra LTDx was a strong contender, but the dispersion and distance didn’t quite match my desires.

So into my bag goes the Callaway Rogue ST Max.

The consistency I have had with this has really helped me feel more confident, both off the tee and off the deck.

The larger shaping makes it slightly less versatile but the reliability is crucial on tight tee shots when my driver would run me into trouble.
