Best fairway woods of 2021: By club fitters for you!

Published

on

Having the right fairway woods is essential for golfers of all skill levels looking to get the most out of their long games—whether it be approach shots into longer par 4’s and par 3’s, going after par 5’s in two, or just trying to hit more fairways off the tee—finding the best fairway wood of 2021 to fit your needs is a must.

Looking at the best fairway wood playing field for 2021, we continue to see more fairway wood options from every manufacturer. What used to be a single model release has been expanded to three—and in some cases even four—models to fit specific player types. These new fairway woods impress us with their ability to utilize new technology and construction methods to go faster, and further, while also offering never-before-seen levels of forgiveness. It’s now easier than ever to find the right one that matches your swing.

That being said, ultimately the best way to find the best fairway woods for you is to work with a professional fitter using a launch monitor. The difficult part is a lot of people don’t have easy access to fitters, launch monitors, and club builders—so at GolfWRX, we have done a lot of the work for you.

The methodology is simple: We want to give you the tools and information to go out and find what works best for you, with recommendations based on exactly what you need from your fairway woods.

Best fairway woods of 2021: The categories

We have broken our 2021 best fairway wood list into two categories.

  1. Best fairway wood for golfers seeking forgiveness 
  2. Best fairway wood for golfers seeking versatility

We selected this format for fairway woods because every golfer fits into one of these two “want” categories regardless of age, handicap, or gender, and for a lot of golfers, forgiveness is the number one factor when selecting a fairway wood.

Before we started building the survey, we reached out to our trusted fitters to discuss how they sort through the fairway wood options available to golfers. Forgiveness and versatility were the highest-ranked choices.

We can’t thank the fitters enough for their time, and we hope that in your search for your best fairway wood for 2021, we can help you find it!

Most forgiving fairway woods 2021

TaylorMade SIM2 Max

Unlike the SIM2 Titanium, the SIM2 Max fairway has gotten bigger than the previous model and comes in at 190 cc head in the 3-wood (compared to 185 in the 2020 version) to increase forgiveness. Although the head has gotten larger, it is still easy to elevate from tighter lies with the help of the newly redesigned two-step V Steel sole.

For the full technology breakdown, check out our 2021 TaylorMade SIM2 Max fairway wood launch piece.

Fitter Notes

  • With its larger size, the SIM2 Max serves a great dual purpose for any golfer looking to use a 3-wood off the tee and off the fairway. If you are a golfer that is intimidated to hit a bigger-headed 3-wood from off the deck you will be hugely surprised how easy it is to elevate thanks to the low center of gravity.
  • The SIM2 Max is great for those golfers that struggle with the low left miss with their fairway woods thanks to its slight draw bias, and for the golfer that tends to “get into the dirt” a bit more often with their fairways, the deeper face really helps prevent the dreaded high ball near the topline.
  • If you struggle to elevate your standard 3-wood you have to try the 3HL in this head!

Ping G425 Max

The G425 Max model fits the widest amount of golfers on the launch conditions bell curve. Instead of looking at golfers by age or other visible factors, it’s much more productive for engineers and designers to look at golfers using their launch dynamics. The Max is a neutrally biased head and has the highest MOI for total forgiveness.

For the full technology breakdown, check out our 2021 Ping G425 Max fairway wood launch piece.

Fitter Notes

  • Beyond just the head design, the thing that makes the G425 Max fairways really forgiving is the ability to adjust the hosel. You can go to a flatter lie for shorter players who tend to hit lower-flying shots to the left or you can add some loft and close it up to help with a fade.
  • Ping’s new face shape really helps golfers who have a hard time hitting their fairway woods off the deck and tend to come up short, which is traditionally caused by excess spin.
  • It’s the perfect tweener size of being big enough to inspire confidence while still offering something that you are not scared to hit from the deck or from a bad lie when you are just trying to advance it from the rough—that’s a true test of forgiveness.

Callaway Epic Max

Just like Callaway’s Epic Max driver, the Epic Max fairway wood also features the company’s new Jailbreak A.I. Velocity Blades designed to provide increased ball speeds as well as a club that is easy to launch. The oversized head on the new Epic Max woods combines with a shallow face to make the club extremely easy to launch from the fairway while also offering added forgiveness.

The Epic Max line also offers adjustable weighting allowing golfers to adjust launch and spin using two and 14-gram weights. The added weight in the rear provides more forgiveness while more weight in the front offers lower launch and spin.

For the full technology breakdown, check out our 2021 Callaway Epic Max fairway wood launch piece.

Fitter Notes

  • How else can you say fast and high launching? The traits of the Epic Max driver carry through to the fairway wood by offering a high and stable ball flight.
  • Where this club really shines is lower on the face – where a lot of golfers tend to miss, and towards the heel and toe.
  • If you need that higher flight but want to keep spin down while using a larger and more game-improvement style fairway wood you need to try the Max with the heavy weight upfront.

Titleist TSi2

The combination of the newly constructed face with ARC 4.0 and the lower center of gravity position make the Titleist TSi2 fairway woods fast and easy to hit. They offer a rounded front leading edge that makes getting under the ball from any lie possible—and you can fine-tune the back weight to match your preferred feel.

For the full technology breakdown, check out our 2021 Titleist TSi2 fairway wood launch piece.

Fitter Notes

  • This is my go-to fairway wood to start a fitting because the adjustable hosel is so functional. I’m really glad Titleist hasn’t messed with this feature. If you use your fairway wood from the rough a lot, the rounded leading edge and sole are brilliant.
  • It’s such a functional and forgiving head because it’s nice and shallow and easy to elevate. To the higher handicaps who have been afraid of Titleist thinking they weren’t forgiving enough, the TSi2 will 100 percent vanquish that stereotype the first time you hit it.
  • If you need height with your fairway woods try the 16.5 or 21 degrees. Hey, if the TSi2 7/21-degree is good enough for Adam Scott, what do you have to lose trying it?

Ping G425 SFT

The G425 SFT fairway has been differentiated more than the previous G410 to create more left bias in the club to help stop slicing. This is achieved with the head shaping combined with the more heel-biased tungsten weight in the back of the head.

From testing, the G425 SFT is six yards more left-biased than the previous G410 SFT and almost a colossal 20 yards more so than the G425 Max in the standard-setting. When you include the ability to further close the face with the adjustable hosel, you get even more slice-killing power.

For the full technology breakdown, check out our 2021 Ping G425 SFT fairway wood launch piece.

Fitter Notes

  • The G425 is everything the standard G425 Max is with a lot more draw bias!
  • If you hate hitting fades with your fairway woods, hit this.

Most versatile fairway woods 2021

Titleist TSi2

2021-titleist-tsi2-fairway-wood-featured

The combination of the newly constructed face with ARC 4.0 and the lower center of gravity position make the Titleist TSi2 fairway woods fast and easy to hit. They offer a rounded front leading edge that makes getting under the ball from any lie possible, and you can fine-tune the back weight to match your preferred feel and the hosel to adjust ball flight.

For the full technology breakdown, check out our 2021 Titleist TSi2 fairway wood launch piece.

Fitter Notes

  • This head excels in versatility because of its shape, the available lofts, and the adjustable hosel—you can do almost anything you want with the TSi2.
  • Not only are the TSi2 fairway woods long, but they offer a playable trajectory for going into greens. There is no point in having a fairway wood for attacking long par 4 and par 5’s if you can’t stop it on the green.

Ping G425 Max

The G425 Max model is the one that is going to fit the widest amount of golfers on the launch conditions bell curve. Instead of looking at golfers by age or other visible factors, it’s much more productive for engineers and designers to look at golfers using their launch dynamics. The Max is a neutrally biased head and has the highest MOI for total forgiveness.

For the full technology breakdown, check out our 2021 Ping G425 Max fairway wood launch piece.

Fitter Notes

  • If you are a golfer who uses your fairway woods to fill specific approach shot distances, you need to try the G425 Max because the loft options and trajectory tuning hosel can get you exactly what you need.

TaylorMade SIM2 Max

Unlike the SIM2 Titanium, the SIM2 Max fairway has gotten bigger than the previous model and comes in at 190 cc head in the 3-wood (compared to 185 in the 2020 version) to increase forgiveness. Although the head has gotten larger, it is still easy to elevate from tighter lies with the help of the newly redesigned two-step V Steel sole.

For the full technology breakdown, check out our 2021 TaylorMade SIM2 Max fairway wood launch piece.

Fitter Notes

  • This club is versatile, not for its adjustability, but because of how many players can use it. Higher loft options with a softer shaft and boom, you have height. Standard loft options and a tour-level/weight shaft, and you have a cannon. This head really can work for so many players.

TaylorMade SIM2 Titanium

The new SIM2 Titanium comes in at 170 cc, 10 cc smaller than the 2020 version. It has also been reshaped from address to offer a more “tour-inspired” look, and to instill confidence for those shots off the fairway. The most impressive thing about the new Sim2 Titanium fairway wood is even in a smaller size it offers a five-percent higher MOI thanks in part to the reconfigured 80-gram steel soleplate, ZaTech titanium face and body—along with the carbon crown.

For the full technology breakdown, check out our 2021 TaylorMade SIM2 Titanium fairway wood launch piece.

Fitter Notes

  • This could easily be the longest fairway wood on the market. If you just want a pure distance 3-wood, the stronger lofted “Rocket” will closely keep up to your driver off the tee.
  • The SIM2 is a low spinner, so as far as pure distance, it’s hard to beat—although it doesn’t come in a true “4-wood” head, I have had great success already with players using the SIM2 Titanium 5-wood lofted down at 3-wood length.
  • The new smaller shape compared to last year’s SIM Titanium really helps those golfers that are going to use their fairway woods from the rough.

Titleist TSi3

Titleist TSi3 introduces a new SureFit track weighting system that incorporates more weight deeper in the head to lower the center of gravity while also offering the ability to easily alter the CG location. The new system is superior to the previous models’ SureFit CG system thanks to its external visibility and ease of use. The three-position system (heel/toe/neutral) is secured by a robust Kyron Max Polymer with a carbon fiber cover.

For the full technology breakdown, check out our 2021 Titleist TSi3 fairway wood launch piece.

Fitter Notes

  • You get lofts from 13.5 degrees all the way to 18 degrees, and then you get the adjustable hosel on top of that. Once you add in the option to use the SureFit hosel to tune ball flight and the weight to help with the contact point and flight bias, you can make this head do anything you want.
  • The TSi3 is such a safe bet if you are buying a fairway wood off the rack because it’s packed with forgiveness relative to its overall shape and you also get endless tuning options with the head.
  • If you need height with your 3-wood, the 16.5 degree set to standard or slightly lofted down will give you all the height you need while still keeping spin in the appropriate window.
  • Classic Titleist look with modern technology is hard to beat.

Best irons in golf of 2021: The shotmakers

Published

on

A new set of irons is the single biggest investment you can make into your set of golf clubs. At GolfWRX, to determine the 2021 best irons and their categories, we have compiled an expert panel of fitters to help you find out which of 2021 irons is best for your game.

In 2021, OEMs have continued to push the engineering envelope of iron design by utilizing new technology and manufacturing methods to create clubs that offer forgiveness, along with faster, more consistent club faces and launch windows. Not only that, but we are also seeing more segmentation of models from equipment manufacturers to help you determine your best set and/or set combination thanks to fitting.

These fitting options are important because irons are the key to better scoring and by building the perfect set, you create a cohesive group of clubs in your bag to help you reduce dispersion and hit it closer to your target.

That being said, ultimately the best way to find your personal iron set is to work with a professional fitter using a launch monitor. The difficult part is a lot of people don’t have easy access to fitters, launch monitors, and club builders—so at GolfWRX, we have done a lot of the work for you.

We are in the era of not just maximizing distance but also minimizing the penalty of common misses for each player—this applies to irons just as much as it does with any other club in the bag. This is why, now more than ever, custom fitting is essential to help you see results on every swing you make.

The methodology is simple: We want to give you the tools and information to go out and find what works best for you by offering recommendations for your individual iron set wants and needs with insight and feedback from the people who work every single day to help golfers get peak performance out of their equipment.

Best irons of 2021: How we did it

Before starting the process of building our best iron survey, we reached out to our trusted fitters to discuss how they sort through the endless number of iron options available to golfers. The consensus was clear—the best fitters in the world see all the options available in the marketplace, analyze their performance traits, and pull from that internal database of knowledge and experience like a supercomputer when they are working with a golfer.

It’s essentially a huge decision tree derived from experience and boiled down to a starting point of options—and it has nothing to do with a handicap!

Modern iron sets are designed into player categories that overlap the outdated “what’s your handicap?” model, and at GolfWRX, we believe it is important to go beyond handicap and ask specific questions about the most crucial performance elements fitters are looking at to help golfers find the best set of irons for them. From overall performance to shotmaking, to helping players achieve better trajectories and speed, we strived to ask the right questions.

These are the best iron categories we have developed to help you the reader determine what rankings are most important for your swing and game.

2021 best irons: The shotmakers

Each one of these irons was designed with a single purpose: to provide the ultimate shotmaking weapon. You don’t have to be a tour player to appreciate the pleasure of hitting a well-struck shot with a club engineered to offer superior feedback. This category is all about control—and that doesn’t mean it “has to be a blade.”

TaylorMade P7MC

best irons 2021 taylormade p7mc

Their story: To build the TaylorMade P7MC irons, the manufacturing process incorporates a 2,000-ton pressure forging to ensure the feel and sound is dialed in. This iron is all business, and anyone comparing this to the smaller P7MB (blade) will notice its slightly longer heel-to-toe length, and just a touch more offset which makes it a great candidate for gapping.

It offers a crisp feel at impact and the workability of a blade iron, but in a platform that still offers forgiveness on shots hit outside of the middle. Looks, feel, and workability—it’s all here.

From the fitters

  • This iron is compact, clean, and offers a superb feel. The P7MC allows better players to have the confidence to hit the shots they want, while still having enough forgiveness hidden in the design to help with forgiveness.
  • It’s bare-bones clean and delivers exactly what you want and expect from a small forged cavity. I should also mention that it feels soooo good.

For more photos/info, read our launch piece and check out this forum thread.

Srixon ZX7

best irons 2021 srixon zx7

Their story: The Srixon ZX7 provides a compact squared-off blade profile with a thin topline to frame the ball and inspire confidence for those who prefer workability over maximum forgiveness. The “tour cavity” construction places mass where it’s needed for feel and acoustics while removing it from other places around the cavity to increase stability in the small forged cavity back.

The other piece of technology, which Srixon is using to maximize performance, is tungsten in the toe of the mid and long irons to condense more mass towards the toe for extra stability without having to extend the blade length. Using tungsten isn’t new, but when the goal is to minimize size while maximizing stability, it’s a complete necessity at this point, and Srixon does a great job utilizing it in the irons.

From the fitters

  • You can call your shot and hit it with the ZX7, and even when you miss a bit we still see nice results. The camber built into the (VT) sole allows for great turf interaction and the ball comes off fast.
  • Even though the Srixon “7” iron has always done well, the ZX7 feels like a big next step in feel and performance.
  • Amazing players iron that offers more ball speed and forgiveness than a lot of other irons in this category. Thanks to the center of gravity and slightly stronger lofts, it’s a top choice for elite players who want distance and need to control spin.
  • This iron has replaced all other better player forged cavity back irons for looks and performance. I dare you to find a better performing forged cavity of its size.

For more photos/info, read our launch piece and check out this forum thread.

Titleist T100

best irons 2021 titleist t100

Their story: Built from the ground up with direct input from Titleist’s PGA Tour staff, the mission statement from the design team for the T100 was to simply create “the best performing tour iron ever.” With a shape that is distinctly Titleist but completely redefined as far as offset, top line, sole width, camber, and blade length, the T100 gives players looking for a tour performance iron more playability than ever before.

The irons are co-forged with large amounts of tungsten (66 grams on average in the 3- 7-irons) in the heel and toe, and it looks a lot more like a single-piece forged player’s cavity back than a multi-piece forgiveness monster—but looks can be deceiving. It has the thinnest face Titleist has ever built into a true forged players club, which allows designers to push more mass around the head and create greater ball speed.

From the fitters

  • The T100 is a classic, clean-looking iron that packs a punch. From the address position, you would have no idea this iron has so much forgiveness packed into it.
  • This iron typically launches a little higher than some others in this category, which is great for lower ball flight players who are in need of more spin, and on the other side of things, there is the T100S model that delivers with less spin and a lower flight.

For more photos/info, read our launch piece and check out this forum thread.

Callaway Apex MB

best irons 2021 callaway apex mb

Their story: The Callaway Apex MB is forged from 1025 carbon steel with a classic shape that is similar to other blade irons from Callaway’s past, but this time with a slightly narrower sole and less offset. Another improvement is the 20V grooves ensure optimal spin control in and out of the rough.

The centrally located weight screw in the back of the head allows Callaway builders to maintain the precise center of gravity locations when adding or removing weight from the irons—it’s not a new idea, but it’s one that is key to allowing the irons to be dialed into spec for each golfer.

From the fitters

  • In my opinion, the Apex MB is the best-looking blade on the market. It’s also very easy to work the ball in any direction you want.
  • The central weight screw for adjusting swing weight has been great this year for quality control and to fine-tune during fittings. Although not everyone is sensitive to swing weight, this feature allows us, and secondly the builders, to get things just right.

For more photos/info, read our launch piece and check out this forum thread.

Mizuno JPX921 Tour

Their story:  The 921 Tour is about subtle refinements to deliver familiar performance with improved feel and looks. The iron is designed with the feel, flow, and performance of the MP series but with greater clubhead stability and a different player in mind. The MP could still be considered the “traditionalist” iron, whereas the JPX Tour caters to a more aggressive player needing a little bit extra help on occasion but still wanting a smaller-looking iron.

Mizuno’s Stability Frame design allows the 921 Tour to offer greater forgiveness (higher MOI) than the MP-20 MMC without the multi-material construction. The iron achieved flow from top to bottom by narrowing the soles in the shorter irons and ever-so-slightly increasing the width in the longer clubs—not something noticeable from address but a feature that helps with ball flight control and shotmaking.

From the fitters

  • The 921 Tour provides Mizuno MP looks and feel with a lot of extra stability. The satin chrome look has also been a massive hit with golfers who like a stealthy look over a shiny chrome.
  • First, it was the 900, and then the 919. Now with the 921 Tour, Mizuno has combined the best of both previous irons to create a stable yet workable tour-level iron.

Adam Scott gives in-depth breakdown of his WITB 

Published

on

Adam Scott has a new podcast, ‘FairGame’, where he discusses a range of topic related to the game of golf, and episode 4 features a video that is a gearheads’ dream, with Scott breaking down his 2021 Masters WITB in stunning detail.

You can check out the video below for Scott’s full breakdown at the end of the article. Subscribe to the podcast here.

Irons

Before the Masters, Adam Scott swapped his trusty Titleist 680 irons for the brand’s 620 irons which surprised many golf fans.

In the video, filmed after the Honda Classic, the Australian still has his 680 irons in the bag, suggesting that his decision to change for Augusta came very late. Scott explains that his choice to game the 680 irons consistently is an “aesthetic thing” and that he prefers the offset look of the 680s.

It’ll be interesting to see what irons Scott has in the bag the next time he tees it up, as he reveals he has talked to Titleist about “bending, offsetting to the 620s”.

Wedges

Adam Scott has a four wedge Vokey setup (48 degree PW, 52 degree, 56 degree, 60 degree).

His 48 degree 10F wedge, he describes as “your pretty standard” wedge and “nothing fancy happening on the sole”, while his 52 degree 12F wedge, Scott says has a little more bounce but a similar sole.

Scott says his 56 degree 10S wedge has a little relief in the back of the club to provide some versatility to manipulate the face, while his newest wedge is the 60 degree 12D wedge that the Australian says has a very strong grind on the sole.

Per Scott, this provides more forward bounce and it also has relief in the heel to open up the clubface and “take some of the bounce away from the heel.” The Aussie says he put the new wedge in the bag to keep the club more square.

Woods

Scott plays all of Titleist’s new TSi woods, which he put in the bag around September, and calls the clubs a “good improvement” on its predecessors. 

The 40-year-old initially played the TSi3 driver, then TSi4 and now plays the TSi2, which he says is “probably the most forgiving” of the family for tour pros.

Scott has the club at 9 degrees and in an A2 position (just upright, but standard loft) after playing around with the position a little bit, and he has settled on the Ventus Red shaft – which he enjoys for its soft profile so he can “feel” the shots.

On his TSi2 7-wood, Scott says it’s the first time he’s gamed a lofted wood since he was 14. The club is 21 degrees set at D1, making it “around 20.5 degrees”, says the Aussie, who loves that he can land the ball softly from the 240-yard range. The club is equipped with a 100g Graphite Design DI 10 X Flex shaft.

Putter

Scott says his current flat-stick is based on his 2013 Masters’ winning gamer. His Scotty Cameron Xperimental Rev X11 features a slightly smaller head than his putter from eight years ago, and Scott explains the reason for that is his putter length is 45 inches, 4 inches shorter than his 2013 putter.

The Aussie calls the putter, which he began using at Riviera this year, incredibly stable with a super high MOI and very forgiving.
