Should I add a 7-wood? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been going in deep on 7-woods. WRXer ‘PilotSports’ is the latest of our members to consider adding one to their bag and kicks off the thread saying:

“I’m starting to gear up for the season and am contemplating a change at the top of my bag. Currently I carry Driver, 3W (13.5 degrees), 5W (18 degrees) and 4H (22 degrees). 

The 5W quickly became my favorite club in the bag when I added it last year, which got me thinking – should I replace the 4H with a 7W? I’d appreciate everyone’s opinion, particularly those that have the 3W/5W/7W setup. How do you like it? Thanks a lot!”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Fairway14: “For some players 7-wood is good; for others, the club produces too high spinning high trajectory shots which make consistent distance control too much of a challenge.”
  • bogeyman71: “I love my G425 7 wood also. One of my favorite clubs to manipulate shots with. I can hit it both high and low and work shots both left and right.”
  • hunterbrown: “7W is great. I gave it a shot lost season but its not as versatile as I thought it might be, it was replacing a ZX 3 iron that went decently high, and I could use it off the tee; that’s where I lost the 7W. It would get eaten up above the trees, which is a good problem if it’s going too high into greens but not off the tee.”
  • QuigleyDU: “I am very pro 7 wood. I love that club. The 21 degree UW as others have said is another great option.”

Three Swing Challenge: Testing the Edel Array F-2 putter

Published

on

This week on the Three Swing Challenge, we have the Edel Array F-2 putter. With the Array line of putters, Edel gives golfers several different options to match their putting styles and tendencies. It is a cool concept, but let’s see how it performs.

Why three swings?

Many years ago, the legendary Barney Adams, founder of Adams Golf told us this:

“My formula as a fitter was three shots only. I discounted No. 1 just because it was the first one, counted 100 percent of No. 2 and discounted No. 3 because the player was starting to adjust.”
