  1. If there is only one tour pro you want to emulate fairway wood shots from, watch Sergio hit fairway woods. He consistently hits divots from the fairway and from the tee since he has so much forward shaft lean on impact.

  2. I discovered slightly hitting down with my trusty 17-21-23º fairway metals and brushing the grass ahead of the ball…. however I couldn’t control hitting my 15º 3-metalwood off the deck.
    The beauty of hitting the high loft metalwoods is the pretty and effective ball trajectories.
    The ball seems to start on a straight low trajectory and then at the end it rises up and drops without much roll… a great control shot.
    Of course if you introduce fade and draw spin the trajectory seems to go normal.
