  • We are noticing a significant putter trend on tour. The greatest players in the world are making a switch to the most important club in the bag. We have already talked in the past about players switching from blades to putters, but all these mallets have something very in common. In my opinion, the most three most popular mallet heads players are using are the TaylorMade Spider Tour, the Scotty Cameron X7 shape, and the Odyssey #7S. The secret? Tour players have these putter head shapes, but with a SLANT NECK HOSEL. The first putter we have seen with this […]

  • As time goes on, we are seeing a constant trend with tour players: THEY WANT FORGIVENESS TOO! In the past, many of the best players in the world always wanted the small size, most unforgiving club to hit. Some said it was the way it looked that helped the performance, but the stats never added up. In the shop, we always hear amateurs reiterating what the old school tour pros want: “The tour version please.” “I just can’t get over how big it is at address.” “I’m not really looking for forgiveness.” If you’re not shooting under par consistently, you […]

  • Most golf fanatics are fast to generalize PGA Tour players as long hitters. They think that the reason why PGA Tour players are successful is their 300+ yard drives, which allows shorter irons into green, which means more control, which means more birdies… right? WRONG. Have you seen Jordan Spieth play?!?! Every time he is playing with another top player, his tee shot is always the shortest one. Jordan is 95th in driving distance with 291.7 yards. This means Spieth has to be sharper with the other side of his golf bag, his wedges and putter. Now, most Spieth fans […]

  • Yesterday Jordan Spieth captured his 3rd major championship just shy of his 24th birthday. The championship marked his 11th professional win making him the only person other than Tiger Woods to have 10+ wins before 24. He is also the only player other than Jack Nicklaus to win 3 majors before turning 24. **Its normal that Spieth uses a stiffer Project X 6.5 for his irons and more flexible Project X 6.0 for his 46, 56 and 60 degree wedges. But what is really ineteresting is that Spieth uses a Project X 6.5 shaft for his 52 degree wedge. He […]

  • Odyssey has decided to further it’s O-Works line with the microhinge inserts to include a few classic shapes in new colors. The black and red heads have been requested by tour players for a while but they all want the new O-Works microhinge insert in the head. The insert improves putting performance by flexing on impact and reducing backspin. This reduces skidding and bouncing of the golf ball initially after impact which helps the ball hold true to the starting line and allows for more consistent distance control. O-Works Black shapes: #2W, #3T, #1, 330M, #2M CS, #7S O-Works Red shapes: 2-Ball, […]

  • There are golfers that do not get technical, and there are others that do. We all have met that player that gets intricate with their game, but really has no business doing so. If Bryson DeChambeau was not on the PGA Tour, you would think he is a nut job. The physics major has broken his golf swing to a science. With all the available swing analyzers, DeChambeau wanted to make the game easier. Most advanced golfers are aware that each club is swung differently, due to the different lengths. What Bryson DeChambeau has done is take out the different […]

  • Here at Fairway Golf, we have tested the latest and greatest golf products many times. There are very few instances when a new demo impresses us, but the Vertical Groove Driver blew us away. Now before you stop reading this blog, hear me out and try not to think of John Daly. 🙂 When I first saw the Vertical Groove Driver (the VGD), I immediately thought, “Wow, just another cheap start-up trying to show that being different is cool.” I mean, vertical grooves on a driver? I imagined the grooves grabbing the ball even harder and promoting a slice or […]

  • When was the last time you saw someone using a 2-iron? Probably a long time ago. Many pros always direct amateurs toward hybrids due to the forgiveness and high launch they produce. However, for the last couple months I have come across some single digit golfers that use 2-irons instead of hybrids. When asking them why, they replied saying that the 2-iron is easier to hit than a hybrid. This really confused me until I hit their 2-iron. I noticed that the 2-iron was a lot easier to hit than my hybrid because of how convenient the club looked at […]

  • Fourteen Golf has been around since 1981. Not many people in the USA are familiar with the Japanese brand. The most popular wedges that we sell in the shop are the Titleist SM6 and Cleveland RTX wedges. In my opinion, the Fourteen RM-22 is performs just as well if not, better. What I like about the Fourteen RM-22 wedges are the black and silver nickel finishes. Rather than the sun glaring in your eyes, the finish will keep that to a minimum. My friend introduced me to the Fourteen wedges, and I immediately loved the performance I was getting out […]

  • You love your three wood, but you just wish it would go a little longer. There are many possible ways to do, besides swinging harder. You can extend the length on your wood, but you lose control and consistency. You can add lead tape to make the club head heavier, but that might throw your temp off in your other clubs. You have looked into buying a 13.5 degree wood, but you can’t find one with modern technology. It is not a secret that trying to find a fairway wood stronger than 15 degrees is hard to find in today’s […]

  • I have never seen a tour player go through so many company changes so rapidly. Rory Mcilroy turned pro in 2007, and debuted on the PGA Tour in 2008. When he was first on tour he was playing with Titleist, driver to putter (Scotty Cameron). At this point in his career, his putting skills were being compared to the one and only Tiger Woods. With a Scotty Cameron 009, Rory was shaking things up on the PGA Tour. Why would he change a thing? In 2013, Mcilroy signed a deal with the big swoosh, Nike. This forced him to make […]

  • Take a look at Titleist‘s new family of irons that will be released this fall. The Quicken Loans National is the tournament that introduces the new Titleist products to the Tour every year and the trend contines this year. The lineup includes a new AP3 iron model that fits right between the company’s popular AP2 and AP1 in terms of size. The new AP3 appears to be a hollow-construction iron of some type that should launch the ball higher and with more ballspeed than the AP2 but has a smaller footprint and less offset than the AP1. The T-MB also […]
