Anybody medium-long hitters using a 7w?
I'm currently in an on-going mission to sort out my fairway situation. I've spent some decent money thus far, but I'm bound and determined to get it absolutely right so I don't have to look back over the next few years playing this stuff. Despite some turnover in the bag this year, I'm very much a set-it-and-forget-it type of guy. Sorting out my fairways is really the last step for me.
I like what I have but the 3w may be redundant. My tee clubs usually consist of a driver which I hit about 275-280 in good conditions and a fairway finder (5w) which goes about 230-ish off the tee. The 3w is often the odd man out. I just don't need it a lot of the time.
So I'm wondering if maybe the more practical combination might be a 5w & 7w?
I'm toying with a Titleist hybrid I got for $40 off the used rack and so far I like the forgiveness but I'm inconsistent with it. I think a 7w might be a cool thing to try. I've seen a couple guys on Tour use them.
Anyone out there doing something like that?
