My preference is hybrid over wood 3 if both give you the same distance. My view is that hybrid is easier to handle Very Happy

Agreed with Khairul.

Just to share my personal experience, I have a hybrid 3 and wood 3, each provides me with different distance (wood 3 + 20m / 30m more) but always choose hybrid over wood 3 for 'not so good lie'...that also shows my drive is always not that consistent.

dun care wat u use la, as long u have the proper gap in between each club from driver to wedge.
every step down shud be avg. 30-50 meters difference.
just that 3 wood is easier to handle when ur driver days go bad... hybrid is just very high spin, high ball trajectory, good for rough, bunkers, etc any surface.

Dear Buddy,
I think it is good for you to have both the hybrid and 3 wood. Simply because both are created not for the same reasons. The fact is, distance is just part of what we all wanted to achieve during a game of golf. accuracy, suitability based on the condition of play, will demand us to use even a driver in the middle of the fairway or to use a 3 FWood to get the ball travel as low as possible to the green through a bunch of tree branches 120 yds away.
it is better to have all the clubs in our bag to provide us with better chances in the field. cheers!

it's probably more a question of 'what loft can you hit consistently well?'

a 3w is 15*, a 3h is 21*. that 6* of difference in loft makes a 3w quite a bit harder to hit well - if you don't have good impact and sufficient club head speed, the ball isn't going to launch.

if you seem to struggle with a 15* club, see whether you can hit a 5w - something around 19*.

you would want a 3 wood for hitting it off the deck. Works well if your driver is giving you trouble on that particular day Smile

You are right. with the current technology, 3 woods could sometimes deliver the same distance as driver. Even Mickelson won the Open Championship without Driver

Hi, i will suggest to try a 3 wood (sure u still can remain 3 hybrid), but no harm to have a 3 wood, because when once your 3 wood can hit about 190-220m, its may possible to bring u a "2 on" for Par 4 or a "3 on" for Par 5. haha!!!

3 wood 2 on par 5. But that's tough stuff. Lol. Don't really need wood 3 to 2 on par 4 nor 3 on par 5 IMHO. Laughing I use my wood 3 only for teeing off when I can't swing my driver well. And sometimes for par5 second shot if my ball lands at a flat fairway. But I screw up most of the time hitting a FW3 on the fairway =(

wah!!! "2 on" for Par 5 sound a day dream for me...haha!!! unless is very short Par 5, to be honest, im not a long hitter.... my driver only around 200-240m (still very inconsistent swing Sad ! ) haha... btw, i will still suggest to have a try on 3wood!!!! and currently, im planning to get a 5 wood to cover a gap for 170-190!
