Anyone carrying a 4 and 5 wood?


Recommended Posts

Currently have a 3 driving iron in the bag, don’t hit it much further than my 4 iron and there is a massive gap between my 4 iron and 4 wood, around 40 yards (actually a 3 HL wood at 16.5*) thinking about putting my old 5 wood v steel in its place. Obviously going to do some range time and hope to see it fill that gap but I was curious if anyone has a similar set up?

I play Ping G410 5 and 7 woods. The 5 is a 17.5° turned down to 16.5° and the 7 is a 20.5°. Then 4 iron. Really liking this setup now.

Since 2012, i have played some combo of 4W + 7W. Changed models a couple of times, but that's the essence.   Several fitters have said they recommend 3W + 5W or 4W + 7W. if you can hit the 4

Yep.  Right now. Subzero mavrik 4 and 5.  The 4 is a cannon.  The 5 launches high . Gaps nicely. 

I play a 17* Rogue 4w and a 19* G410 hybrid normally.

Sometimes I switch out the hybrid for a Xhot 19* 5w for certain courses or just for a change of pace. I hit the 5w a lot higher than the hybrid, but can play more shots with G410 hybrid.

Several fitters have said they recommend 3W + 5W or 4W + 7W. if you can hit the 4i, 7W will really help.

 

On PGA tour, Dustin Johnson, Jason Dufner, Sung Kang and others have 7W as their second fairway.

If you put the heavy weight in the rear , it gets up quickly and just goes.  The 3 just went too far.  May as well drop driver as to carry the 3 wood.

I am playing a 4 wood at 16 and a 5 wood at 19.5. I would consider it more of a 4 and 6 wood but my gaps are really good. That’s all that matters.

I was just thinking of doing this exact thing yesterday. I just bought a TS2 16.5. I already have a 917f2 18 I play at 18.75*.  I need to do a gap test to see how they match up. If they play well together, I can go back and forth between the 5W and a Sub 70 699 Pro Utility iron, depending on course. 
 

In my one round with the TS2 16.5, it seemed like I was hitting it as far as my 917f2 13.5 set at 15*. If so, I’m just going to bench the 13.5.
