Stronger Players - 7 wood?


Sabzor
 Share

Recommended Posts

I run Driver, 3W, 7W, 4H, 5H and the 7w is by far my favorite. Typically I can get 220-230 out of it with tight dispersion.

 

Not being the strongest player with about average swing speed, I run the Ping G410 with their Alta regular shaft. Off the tee on par 4's and long approach shots to par 5's the thing is just money and I can work it at will left or right.

This season I switched out of 3 wood in favor of a 4 wood since I found 3 wood was getting too close to my driver off the tee making it kinda redundant. My SS is about 115+ and typically I carry D (295), 4W(250), 3h(220), then irons. Lately I've been interested in possibly swapping the hybrid for a 7 wood and wanted to see if there were any stronger players who did the same? Often you hear of it going too high but I feel that even the 4w is pretty optimal for me. My thought process is mainly around having 2 versatile distance woods starting around 250yds down - I figure off the tee if I need more than 250 I'm hitting driver anyway. Just curious with some of the pros we've seen lately doing the same thing.

Tons of Pros use 7W or really weak 5W.

 

Most of the TM guys are using 19* 5W and many of them have it lofted even higher. Justin Thomas' 5W I believe is lofted up to like 19.5* or something.

 

I remember an old Tiger video where he was testing clubs and said it's always better to be able to flight the ball naturally higher and bring it down if needed, versus hitting it too low and working harder to hit it higher in the air.

Driver (TS3)/4 wood (SLDR)/7 wood (Rogue), then 4-pw Forged Tec One Length (4 iron is a half inch longer with a driving iron shaft), 50/54/60 Hi Toe wedges.  Kind of stumbled across this setup as I trade a lot of gear but it's been such a good setup for me.  I'm approx a 6 hdcp with a driver ss of 110-115.  I can hit either fairway high or low, but if I really need a low, controlled shot I can hit the 4 iron.

I will be testing 7 woods in the near future. I have a 3 hybrid, which  I like most times, but have hit some of the biggest snap hooks of any club I've ever owned. I play a 4 wood over a 3 wood due to de lofting through impact. After reading all of this a 7 wood seems like it could fit the bill nicely.

Probably depends on your gapping - browsing this thread, it seems players with high swing speed are hitting lower lofts too far and seem to be going more towards higher lofted woods.

 

I am not blessed with great CHS - I still go 3 or 4 wd, a 5 wd and then a 19 or 22 Hy before I get to 5i.

 

If I went 7 wd, I would go 41 inches for more consistency.

 

I like 1 inch between woods - 3/4 wood at 43, 5 wd at 42, then 7 wd at 41 in. But it depends on your choice of woods, gapping and yardage targets.

I go from 44.5" driver (9* loft, set to 10*) to 42.5" 4-wood (16.5* loft) and then a 41.5" 7-wood (20.5* loft).  This works very well for me.  I also have a 20* hybrid that is 39.5" long, and this club goes about 15-20 yards shorter than my 7-wood (carry only).

I play a 15° 3 wood with a 43” HZRDUS Smoke Black 70 and a 19° hybrid with a HZRDUS Smoke Black 80HY at 40.5”. I’m thinking about getting a 21° 7 wood with a HZRDUS Smoke Black shaft too, but I’m undecided if I should get the 70 or 80 gram. What route would you guys suggest considering my setup?

It's been my experience the heavier the better in fairway woods. I've tested some 70's gram shafts and have better tempo and better swings with shafts in the 80's.

To those who are playing a 7 wood, what kind of backspin/ballspeed numbers are you looking for?

 

I haven't gotten on a launch monitor to get those exact numbers. Nor do I really plan on it.  More of a feel a look type of player.  What I was looking for in this spot in the bag was a ball flight.  I de loft a tad at impact, and my hybrids weren't much better than irons in their spots.  Most of the par 5's I play are either

A. Uphill approaches

B. Small targets

C. Have hazards in front

 

So they are not good candidates for a lowish running attempt to hit the green with my second shot.

 

FWIW - My driver SS is around 117-119.  My common issue across the bag tends to be hitting the ball with too much spin (especially with irons)

My clubhead speed is clearly not quite up there with nitram's, but here's what I look for in a 7-wood in terms of launch monitor data: 1.38 to 1.41 smash factor, 3,800 RPM spin, 135+ MPH ball speed, and close to 200 yards carry.  FWIW, my driver clubhead speed is 94-97 MPH, so I am looking for at least 90-92 MPH with the 7-wood.

Man! I'm a firm believer of that! Been using a FW in the 19-21 range for several years now. They're typically my 210-215 club and have a good bit of stopping power. I can punch them and keep it low when needed too.

I never consider hitting a low punch shot with the 7-wood, as I am much better-off doing that with my hybrid or even with the 5-iron (both played back in my stance).

I recently bagged a TM SIM 7wood after not playing one since the 90's...and my God, I wish I had done it YEARS ago. I've played a myriad of hybrids over the years....each one was prone to that ugly hook when it really mattered....I could kick myself for not even thinking of the 7wood! 

I purchased the SIM, if I'm being honest, when I saw DJ bagging one earlier this summer.  SOooOoO easy to hit....beautiful ballflight that will stop on a green on those approach shots. Also, as mentioned above...comes in handy around the greens too! pops right over shaggy rough, just off the green. I dropped my 3 and 5 woods, replaced with a 4 wood...and then added this 7 wood and where I used to not have that feeling of confidence when pulling a hybrid from the bag ("oh brother...hope I don't hook THIS shot now")....I now lick my chops when I have to grab the 7-wood....215-225 out....that NEVER used to happen before adding this club!

I have a Ping G410 7 wood with a Orange Tensi Shaft cut to 4 wood length.  Made my own version of a heavenwood.

 

It works great out of so many different bad lies and fairway bunker shots.

There is a good article talking about how there were three “9 woods” at some event in April, on the tour truck, and they all disappeared in minutes. And then the players that missed out, ended up putting “seven” woods in play.

 

It is more common than you would think, but it is not used week in and week out by most players. Dustin just won with a 7 wood. 
 

I purchased one this morning. Had been using a high lofted 5 wood.

Cheers for the replies! I quickly hit two shots with mine on trackman yesterday, got around 150 ball speed and almost 5k backspin off a mat. Time to tweak a little bit to maybe reduce the spin a touch - although the ones i hit will definitely stop on a dime.

If a player tends to be on the lower end of delivered/dynamic loft with fairway woods, the seven wood can be a wonderful tool. This is true particularly for a player that delivers less loft AND tends to struggle with hybrids.


As was said, this is exactly why guys like DJ uses them. It is basically a 5w for him in terms of what he ends up delivering at impact.

Love my R15 5HL. Standard specs are 20.5* and to me, looks open on the standard setting.  I managed to get an OG BB 93X with a TM tip, moved it 1 click closed and it plays at 41.5". Perfect flight and really doesn't balloon at all. I agree with other posts where it really comes down to finding the right shaft/head combo you want.

 


Damn, that sounds like a sweet club. I love the heavier Blueboard shafts, Taylormade fairways, and higher lofted fairways that sit open. One thing that kept me away from higher lofted fairways in the past was the need for a really open face angle as the higher the loft, the more the club appears closed to me. I've picked up some higher lofted 5-woods and 7-woods that just looked so closed to me that there is no way I could game them. 

I myself prefer either the lofted down 5-wood approach OR the "weaker" 5-wood approach (19-19.5) and the latter was always harder to get a nice open face angle without going tour issue. I caved and got a spec'd out SIM Max 5w from Will Peoples coming and i'm going to demo the dueling Taylormade 5-wood setup with my normal Titleist setup.

Yeah its a great club, It really took a lot of back and forth with the wrong clubs to finally get that spot in the bag filled. For those 5w/7w spots it's all about that face angle. I just happen to get lucky with that R15 and the face angle looked open to me.

Yup, it is part of what I miss about my old Titleist 906f fairways, they sat nice and open. They are still in the backup/travel bag with 73x/83x Blueboards in them. I actually have a 93x sitting around too that needs a home.

I don't do that much, but if I have a 200 yd shot that I need to start low and have it rise quickly, I can do that with my 7wds.

Tour pros with 7W definitely inspire me to try one again.

I find clubs that are easy to launch high to be versatile because you can work them lower to cover a lot of shot shapes and conditions.  Also with the FW length you can step up swing speed or ramp down maybe more easily than a long iron to cover a wide range of distances.  Tack on 7W performance out of rough and you have a great utility club.

 

Even though I really like my 3 and 4 irons, I wouldn't mind swapping them out once in a while if I find a good 7W.  I'm just directionally more confident with long irons.... and a solidly struck 3 iron off the tee gives the ego a boost, not gonna lie.  I had a TEE CB2 7W that I wanted to like but tended to hook, even after experimenting with a shorter X100 steel shaft.  I would try again though, maybe a 915F, like Dufner, to match my 5W which is a great club. I'd want a small head, flat lie, open face.

I just tossed one in the bag today and walked 9 with it. Also hit the range and hit a few dozen with my 3h.

 

Man does this 7w fly high. Really towering ball flight with my swing. Gonna need a little more testing or even add some loft with the adapter, luckily its an Epic Flash.

Ball speed 175, swing speed 118ish.  I have tested and tried the 3 metal/7 metal set up and found that I feel more comfortable with 3 metal/2 HB.  The gap between my 3 metal and 2 HB is 15 to 20 yards so it's not an issue.

You did mean to lower the loft with the hosel adapter, correct?  I have my Epic Flash 7w set at -1 (20* loft), and that's about perfect for me to play in conjunction with a 4-wood that I can adjust from 15.75* to 17.5* loft (I currently have it set at 15.75*, but I often play it at 16.5*).
