Subject: driver, fairway woods

I have ordered a 3 wood from you. I noticed after I ordered that the length of the shaft is longer than the irons. The longer the shaft the more problems I encounter, will the 3 wood being 2-3 inches shorter make any difference to my game. Or should they be the same length as the irons. Greg

All club lengths and club-head lie angles should be the same within each functional grouping of golf clubs. What you have to bear in mind is that there is a distinct difference in design function between irons, fairway woods, and drivers. An iron is designed to pinch the ball against the turf using a down and through type of swing which requires an upright swing plane and a descending swing arc into the ball. On the other hand, fairway woods are designed to sweep the ball from the turf which requires a flatter swing plane and, hence, a longer club length than an iron. A driver is designed to sweep a ball that is teed up 1" to 2" off the ground which requires an even flatter swing plane than a fairway wood and, hence, a longer club length than the other woods within a set.

At your W-T-F measurement your #3 wood will be approximately 2" to 3" shorter than a conventional #3 wood and will be much easier to hit and control.
