2017 HOT LIST by Fairway Golf USA

Although we are only four months into 2017, we are going to help you decide which clubs to try out. Based off of the performance from our Fairway Golf customers, here are the high performance clubs we recommend.

DRIVERS

TaylorMade 2017 M2 Driver

1st: TaylorMade 2017 M2 Driver

Pros: The center of gravity on these drivers are lower than any other driver out there. Lower CG translates to higher launch and less spin which is the recipe to longer drives. More forgiving than the M1. Most players are averaging a 5 yard increase in distance, which is why we are placing this driver in the 1st spot.

Cons: The M2 is not as adjustable as the M1.

 

Callaway Great Big Bertha Epic Driver

2nd: Callaway GBB Epic Driver

Pros: The sound on the Epic drivers are the best we have heard. Instead of a hollow sounds, it is like a sweet metal sound. The crown on the Epic drivers are more subtle than the TaylorMade M series. The Jailbreak technology expands the sweet spot and generates more ball speed.

Cons: The adjustment hossel for Callaway can be confusing to remember.

 

PXG 0811X Drivers descriptioin

3rd: PXG 0811X Driver

Pros: The PXG 0811X driver spins less than the 0811 driver. We love the weighting system that PXG is known for.

Cons: If you like a hollow sounding driver, then this driver is for you!

 

IRONS

PXG 0311 Irons

1st: PXG 0311 Irons

Pros: Because PXG are hollow, they are very forgiving and absolutely increase distance for everybody. Although they are have a blade profile, they have the performance of cavity backs.

Cons: The ferrule looks smaller than other iron brands.

 

TaylorMade P750 Tour Proto Irons

2nd: TaylorMade P750 Tour Proto Irons

Pros: The feeling on these irons are softer than the TM P770 irons. With such a slender profile, these irons are made for players that shape their shots.

Cons: Not the most forgiving iron. Only recommended for great ball strikers.

TaylorMade 2017 M2 Irons

3rd: TaylorMade 2017 M2 Irons

Pros: This is as long and forgiving as it gets. The tour pros use these in their longer irons to launch them higher and hold the greens.

Cons: The profile is not ideal for players than want to shape their shots. These M2 irons are slightly larger than the M1 irons.

 

PUTTERS

TaylorMade Spider Tour Red PutterTaylor Made Spider Itsy Bitsy Tour Black Putter

1st: TaylorMade Spider Tour Putter

Pros: This putter has the highest motion of inertia out in the market. There is no question that it is the best putter out there because many tour pros (even the non-TaylorMade players) are switching to this putter. The red putter is softer than the black version.

Cons: The red color is not the most appealing to consumers.

PXG Classic Milled Putters

2nd: PXG Drone Putter

Pros: High motion of inertia. The weighted screws make it easy to line up to the ball. A soft and hard insert is available to choose from. The insert is similar to the TM Spider.

Cons: The shape is hard to get used to.

Scotty Cameron Futura X7 Putters

3rd: 2017 Scotty Cameron Futura X7

Pros: Very soft feel (as you would expect from Scotty). Highest MOI from the Cameron brand.

Cons: The back end of the putter might get caught at the impact position.

  1. Interesting to read about the engineering construction of these TaylorMade, PXG, and Callaway clubs and how they affect distance and trajectory.
