5 wood vs 3 wood off the tee

I think you could have a 15* 3-wood, 17* 7-wood and have your hybrids and still not have too many clubs for the application.
Im guessing that the hybrids replaced your 3 and 4-irons.
Ive got a 15* 3-wood and a 19* hybrid and Ive seriously considered getting a 17* fairway wood to fill the gap between my 3-wood and hybrid.

If you watch golf tournaments on TV, if someone has the win pretty much locked up and wants to play it safe, you typically see them hit a 3-wood off of the tee.
If you are struggling with you driver, a 3-wood should perform about the same as a 5-wood. The only real difference you should see is that the 3 will hit the ball farther than the 5. If it were a windy day, youd probably want to go with the 3 because it wont hit the ball as high, so the wind wont effect the ball's flightpath as much.

So the 4-wood falls into the 17* slot...lots of times now they do not call it a 4-wood though, they will call it a 5+ sometimes instead.
