Firstly, when purchasing a driver, closed is better than neutral, and shorter is better than longer. This may come as a surprise, as a lot of drivers sold today have shafts that are 45 inches are longer. Nevertheless, if you look at the average driver on the PGA Tour, you will note that it is 44.5 inches. So, what is the secret that the professionals are in on? Quite frankly, it is harder to hit squarely when the club is longer. Many people make the mistake of confusing fairway woods with hybrids. It is understandable to assume that there is not much difference between the two, especially when there are a lot of hybrids on the market that have the same lengths and lofts as fairway woods. Nevertheless, you are better off with hybrids if you have a steeper swing. Alternatively, fairway woods are suited for those who sweep shots cleanly off the turf.

In fact, the newer or worse you are, the greater the need for clubs that match you and your swing properly. Jason Day and Rory Mcllroy could probably play with anything, but of course, they don’t!
