Hi - I can find a list of non-conforming driver heads but nothing for 3 woods or fairway woods...I find it hard to believe that all fairway woods (3 woods) are conforming.  I have purchased a second hand 3 wood and I would like to check and make sure it is conforming before I put it into my son's bag.  Does anyone have any information with regards to this?

Thanks

You know I could be wrong with this I believe there was never a COR rule made for fairway woods but something keeps telling me that it`s not correct, I think there was a conversation about that some years back, anyway someone will come in with the correct info.

Im not sure how you can make a nonconforming 3 wood.  Make it 49", w a 500cc head, shave the face and name it a 3 wood maybe.

Rumor is the TEE 3 woods would be non-conforming if there was a test

Maybe I'm wrong but I thought 3 woods fell under the same rules as drivers.  I know Wishon had some 3 woods at the COR limit, but I'm not aware of any over.

And speaking of the COR limit, it's more difficult to get the spring effect off a small sized face such as on a 3 wood.  Even if the club head does approach the limit, only the very center would do so.

Thanks for the reply and link but this site only checks clubs for conforming groove limits - that's the way I understand it.  

What I don't get is...if there are no say 3 woods that are non-conforming, why don't they just say it somewhere?  

Very frustrating!

I found this mentioned on some website that they were talking about non-conforming 3 woods...the funny thing is that's the club I purchased.  I have also read that any club with a degree of 15 & 13  or less had to meet the standards...but this is just what people are saying - I'd like to see some hard facts...

Every club, so you can theoretically make .830 9-iron.

If there are nonconforming woods then it will likely be titanium  faced. The Tour Edge Exotics XCG fairway wood is maxed at .830 COR.

Hi everyone,

I am very surprised that it is that hard to find information on whether a club is conforming or not...one would think that this information would be readily available...it's a bit unbelievable to me! I guess if other people have questions about conforming clubs and can't find an answer  just play them or buy something new...

Thanks

Highly doubtful.

If it's true, then I can kiss my chances of playing in the US Open goodbye.
