g20 stupid easy.

also had awesome results with Cobra S1 fws even though it has a taller face than you see today.  Come to think of it I liked every Cobra equipment I ever owned.

I tried a Squareway Tour 15° for a little bit & that thing got it up quick off the deck. I really liked it but just a little big compared to what I'm used to & wanted a more compact head. I'm not sure the tour Squareway woods are easy to find but I'm sure the regular ones are around for a cheap deal.

Ping K15.  It's 16* and very easy to launch.  Leave the 14 and 15* 3 woods to the pros.  BTW - Tiger carries a 16* 3 wood.

Also....going with a more flexible shaft will also help launching from the fairway.

TEE Trilogy fits the bill exactly.  As a bonus, they can be picked up new or used very inexpensively.

Also....going with less flex in the shaft will also help launching from the fairway.

Are you saying a stiff flex is easier to launch from the fairway than a regular flex?

The K15 has to be one of the best fairway woods ever made. Callaway has made a 3 wood in 16* loft the last few years in there Diablo series.

Sorry, getting old.....that's *ss backwards.  A regular flex will be easier to launch then a stiff flex.

Fixed it in the above post.

Another for the G20

Very low/wide profile. Lots of confidence at address.

Off the tee however... Must tee it down or you will pop it up.

I was hoping nobody would recommend the Titleist 910f as the easiest to hit off the deck and get up in the air.  In my trials, I haven't found many harder clubs to do so with.
