Golf Tip – Fairway Woods

November 9, 2015 Posted by Matt

fairway woodsThink smooth when you have shots that call for long fairway woods.  Most players will naturally try to swing hard when they are hitting a long shot with a fairway wood.  This actually causes the swing to be shorter and the transition to be jerky, sending the club off plane.  Think smooth when hitting a fairway wood.  Grip the club lightly, play the ball off your front heel, and take a slightly wider stance.  Make a smooth backswing with a good shoulder turn, then drop the club down and through with no excessive force.  Your arc and shoulder turn will create all the club speed you will need, and the better contact will produce solid shots with your fairway woods.
