The Types Of Callaway 3 Wood On The Market

By Bob Thompson

In this article I will briefly discuss the types of the Callaway 3 Wood range. At present Callaway currently make four different types of 3-wood, these are the Big Bertha Diablo, the X-Hot, the FT and the FT-i squareway. Depending on the type of golfer that you are will depend which club is right for you, as they all provide different effects in relation to swing styles.

The Big Bertha Diablo is as mentioned one of the most well known clubs the club head has been shaped to provide a longer shot length whilst still having excellent shot accuracy.

If twisting action is problematic within your swing then then FT-i Squareway may be a better choice of club for you asFT-i Squareway has a squareway inertial design placing the weight of the club head in the most extreme corners of the club. The result of this is that the club is loss prone to twisting throughout the swing action.

The X-Hot is designed to increase accuracy in hitting the ball the sole is split into two sections hich creates a smoother movement within the stroke. This design is exclusive to the Callaway X-Hot series.

The FT model of the Calaway 3 wood combines a variety of material blended together which give the engineers at Callaway the ability to fine tune the club to provide optimum weighting in key parts of the club head. This means that the flight trajectory of the shot is at it's best and allows for increased shot shaping.

The angle of the club face on a three wood is usually between 13 and 15 degrees, this is known as the loft of the wood. From a three wood you should be aiming to get the ball to travel around the 250 yard mark. When a driver is not an appropriate club for the tee off a 3 wood can be used. It is also handy for shots where the ball is just off the fairway or when the ball has a good lie in the rough.

As the amount of investment within Golf has increased so has the research that goes into the production of the clubs themselves. As such the market has been inundated with a variety of clubs to suit different kinds of swings, the best way to determine which is right for you is to go to a driving range with them and try them out. Most driving ranges allow for different clubs to be sampled so you won't have to buy them first.

The club heads of 3 woods are usually made from an alloy of titanium or steel. The advantage of steel is it's cheaper cost however a titanium club head will provide more power due to it's lighter weight.

The same metal compounds are used for fairway wood club heads as well. These woods increase in loft the higher the number of wood. This means that a 5 wood has more loft than a four wood and a four wood has more than a three wood. The more loft a wood has the higher the ball will travel in the air which means it will travel a shorter distance down the fairway.

The 1-wood is longest club a golfer can use, there are 2-woods manufactured but it is rare to find a golfer who uses one therefore the 3-wood is usually the second biggest club in a golf bag. The advantage of using woods instead of drivers is that they have smaller heads and are easy for beginners to start out with when striking a ball off the tee.

Golf Range Finders

By Dale Smith

With all of the advancements in golf, the newest craze are golf range finders. This neat piece of technology is changing the way that golfers approach the game. There are many types and they all offer some outstanding information, to assist you in improving your game.

There are very different thoughts about this new tool. It is now possible to know exactly how far you need to hit your shot to just drop it into the hole! Outstanding! You can also see how far you need to hit a shot to clear or come up short of a hazard, or other potential danger. Terrific! Most importantly, it can take a less than average golfer and make them a Pro. Well, not really and this is the thought where there are very conflicting discussions.

Yes, a range finder can help any player. However, they are not legal to use in any sanctioned event. Although many players may never even think about playing in an actual event, becoming used to having all of the outstanding information that you can get from your range finder is just not a great idea, when all of a sudden, you cannot depend on it anymore.

When you consider that range finders are not allowed in Tournament play, does it make sense to get overly dependent on something that you cannot use in crunch time? The actual answer is yes, but perhaps for different reasons than you might think. This is perhaps your best training tool. The proper place to use it, is at your local practice facility. By learning how far your shots travel and what happens to them when they land, will go a long way in helping you improve. Knowing how far you hit and learn to hit each club, under different circumstances, will have your handicap dropping.

Over 90% of the golfers in the world shot around 100 or are 18 handicap players. What this means, in many cases, is that their game needs improvement, not knowledge about the course they are playing. By using this great piece of technology to track how your ball flies, what it does when it lands and how to get consistent with repetitious practice, this is a spectacular tool.

Considering that most players do not compete in too many events, because they think their game is not good enough, you are missing out on some great competition. So, by using your range finder to improve your game will have a much greater impact than knowing where the trouble is, when you are not even sure that you can make the correct shot.

To assist you in finding distances, most golf courses have yardage markers on the sprinkler heads all over the course. All golf courses will have markers at the 100, 150 and 200 yard distances to give you some idea of where you are. If this tool could help you make a shot, that would be a great advantage, but it does not. You will find some very useful information, but if you use it effectively during your practice, you will likely get a lot more out of its use.

Many golf course have distances marked on the sprinkler heads all over the course. All golf courses will have markers on the sides of the fairways for 200, 150 and 100 yards. On the course, for most players, this is plenty of information. If you are just starting to play, do not be lured by the technology of the idea of knowing how far everything is. You should be more interested in learning how to play the game.

So, all players should own a golf range finder. The challenge is where is the best place to get the maximum benefit. If you actually make it to the practice facility, then use it to make your play better. Then on the course, you can learn to trust your abilities and play as the Pros do, whether you are a scratch player or one that is just playing for the recreational benefits.

Golf Clubs

By Kathryn Troy

There are lots of smaller makers that you'll have seen that don't appear on the golfing Digest list. While these brands are frequently cheaper than the brands that appear on the list, you generally get what you pay for. The makers on the golf Digest Hot List represent the upper echelon re quality. If you'd like your clubs to last for one or two years and still have some second-hand value when you go to upgrade again, try to stick with the manufacturers on the golf Digest Host List. If you want some explanation about the standard of some of the smaller manufacturers, have a look at their drivers. Frequently you are going to be able to find one or two makers that are obviously copying the styling of a Taylormade or Callaway driver. If they'd basically put the effort and time into making a top notch golfing club they would have taken the time to come up with unique styling of their own.

If you are just starting out to play golfing, you should never purchase a new club set straight away as you'll discover this game isn't for you later. Furthermore, you are yet to find the type of golfing clubs that fits you during the learning stage. The good choice is to start with cheap used golf clubs. And here are some guiding principles to help to hunt down your first used golfing club set :

First, you may need to play with the rental clubs at a driving range. During this time, don't be scared to ask your mates or other golfers to try their clubs on the range. This is a good opportunity for you to judge which kind of clubs is correct for you. After hitting for a time period at the driving range and you think it's time to purchase your own clubs, then ....

When you go out to buy used golfing clubs, you should generally depend on folk who know golfing kit well. You can have a look for your local pro at your local municipal course as a source of information and recommendation. Or you can consult the experts at the golf shop or perhaps your mate who plays well or who knows anything about clubs. Otherwise, you can search the internet for used golf club reviews. You can always ask folks for advice but keep in mind that what suits them may not mandatory prove good in your hands. it is more important to identify the club set that appropriate to your ability yourself.

Now to get the best performance possible from your clubs, you can get them custom made. Whether you're going to be using the clubs now and again or highly frequently, if they are custom made they are going to offer you the most impressive results every time.

Are you thinking "I don't play golf enough to need custom golfing clubs"? If so then stop right there! You do not need to play golfing religiously to explain having custom made clubs. As with each past-time, you want to have the absolute best equipment in order to play well. You don't need to play golf badly even if it is just a past-time. So custom made clubs may be employed if you are an amateur or a pro.

If you have a look at each and every single golfer, you will shortly realise that all of them look different. They're a different build and their bodies move in alternative ways. So why should it seem sensible that they should all use the same golf clubs? It doesn't and if a 5"4 golfing player attempted to use the same club as a 6"2 golf player then there would be major Problems. You won't get identical results and it can be uncomfortable to use a club that doesn't suit your size and shape. That is why custom made clubs do come in helpful.

Investigating the 4 Elements of Your Golfing Swing

By Joe M. Randolph

Golf could be a relaxing hobby and sport that provides the advantages of getting exercise, enjoying the outside, and alleviating stress. if you're serious about the game and have trouble with your golfing swing, the basic fundamental of the game, your stress level will annul all of the other benefits related to golfing.


Everything built well starts with a solid base. Your golfing swing is not different. when starting to investigate your golfing swing start by concentrating on your position.

With golf club in hand take your normal stance and approach the ball as if you are going to take your swing. Then lay your driver down so that the shaft is touching the toes of your left and right shoe. This will reveal the direction of your feet in relationship to the pin that you are driving the ball towards.

If the golf club is not directly pointing towards the pin or your target adjust the shaft of the club accordingly. Then reposition your feet so that the toes are touching the shaft of the club.

The next part of your position addresses your shoulders and hips. They also should be totally in-line or parallel with the club lying at your feet.

With this under consideration, pick up your golfing club and practice some swings keeping your shoulders and hips parallel to that hypothetical line there at the base of your toes. Your golfing swing must reflect this rule of being parallel to the hypothetical line aimed at your target.


The 2nd step in investigating your golfing swing is observing the swing itself. Of particular help might be the help of a golf partner to help with the investigating of your form.

The first part of your golfing swing to study is the bringing of the club back to its uppermost position. The particular start of the swing should be even in nature and fluid. In addition, while your club is on the backward portion of the swing and overhead, hesitate for a particularly slight moment.

Following that slight hesitation let your downward golfing swing flow in the same even nature towards the ball. It is vital to remember that speed and forcefulness aren't traits of a good golfing swing.

Additionally, take note of your downward golf swing beginning from this upward position. Do you keep your wrists straight or is there a hint of wrist movement? It is recommended that the movement of the wrists should take place just as the golf club is horizontal to the ground.


Thirdly, in investigating your golfing swing, when your club makes contact with the golfball it is crucial to remember that you aren't playing baseball. The power to drive the ball shouldn't be drawn from your arms and shoulders. The drive given to the ball should be drawn from your whole higher body as well as your legs. Also, do not forget to follow the trail of your club that was lying at your feet to place your position. Your golfing swing should stay parallel with the shaft of that club that was directed towards your target.

Follow Through

The last vital part in researching your golf swing is swinging thru the drive. It is vital when you have made contact with the ball that you continue for an additional 5 to 6 inches following in parallel the hypothetical trail of the golfing club laying on the ground.

Finally, complete the swing with that very same liquid motion bringing the club to the opposite side of the body and above the head. Good luck!
