Best Draw Fairway woods

Recommended Posts

I have been struggling to find a fairway wood that I have liked but have never tried a draw biased one. I struggle over faded the ball at points so could be a good fit but the trouble is I can't seem to find one that has a heavy enough shaft in a stiff flex used to try... any models you have tried would be appreciated!

I bought an M6 D type 3 wood that was 16.5* and really didn't get along with it. I didn't try the standard M6. But I don't notice any draw bias with my D type driver, so there is that.

Taylormade M6 D Type driver Mitsubishi Kuro Kage TiNi 70G shaft (cut to 44.5")

Honma XP-1 3 and 5 wood 

Taylormade GAPR Lo 19* Hybrid 

Haywood MB irons 4-PW

Mitsubishi Kuro Kage 80g iron shafts

Haywood 52/10 and 56/12 wedges

Nike Blue Chip 002 putter

Golf Pride Concept Helix grips

My Max D 3 wood is very slightly draw biased, but in all the reviews I've read/seen then as others have said, the Ping SFT looks to be the most draw biased.

If you want one that is easy to draw but does not look closed, Ping g425 SFT is your winner. Plus, it’s adjustable to get it just right. 
 

If you don’t mind a little offset (instead of looking closed, which I can’t look at), trust me that the B21 is the best draw-biased fairway wood Callaway offers. Looks great, sounds great, goes a mile. I don’t mind offset. It performs really well.

Not adjustable, but don't overlook the Srixon F85 or ZX line.  They do sit a touch closed but are about as easy as a Ping FW off the deck and do have a draw bias to them.  Reshafted my F85 with a heavier 70g Riptide and it is really making a push to get back in the bag.  I have to lay it open a touch though as I do not want the draw.  Looks and feels great though, very under the radar FWW.

The Sim2 Max is a very powerful but forgiving head, which is also draw biased. This is certainly true of the "D" version, but even the standard version -- at least in the 3w -- is draw biased.

I just put a Ping 425 SFT in the bag, and it will NOT go right.  Fantastic club.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
