When & why: fairway woods
It’s never easy to know when you should be pulling out your fairway wood, but we’re here with a solution that makes the decision less painful.
You might think that you’re worried about hitting your driver because you’re worried about making a mistake. But what you’re actually afraid of is the consequence of that mistake, which is why minimising the risk lets you be confident, not cautious, with driver in hand.
You can do this by minimising the effects of miss-hits. For example, in the above illustration, if you miss it too far to the right then your ball is going swimming and your scorecard is taking a real hit.
Looking at the Lynx Parallax drivers gives us a great idea of how to do this. The large, forgiving head is weighted to help you keep those bad shots in play, meaning you could give it a good old whack and get further down the fairway without being scared of losing balls in the water and totting up the score.
We’ve explored this idea of keeping every shot in play and giving you confidence in your driver on every hole, but experiencing it for yourself out on the course would be the best way to understand how big of difference it makes.
