Golf Question: Should I Choose A 2 Or A 4 Golf Fairway Wood?When it comes to choosing golf fairway woods to carry in your golf bag, it is highly recommended to select based on which lofts suit your swing and will be tailored to your game.




You see, recreational, club level and even aspiring professional golfers choose fairway woods based on what their friends or their favourite tour pros use. You might strike lucky and find a fairway wood to suit your game this way, but a custom fitting to find the right product to use to suit your game is highly recommended.

What are 2 and 4 woods and how will they influence your golf game?
The 2 wood is also known as a strong 3 wood. The loft on the 2 wood will be around 13 degrees. This lower loft will make the ball launch and fly on a much lower penetrating trajectory. This lower flight will result in the ball travelling further and should roll out more upon landing. The 2 wood is also a good alternative from the tee box offering a touch more distance than a standard 3 wood. The 4 wood is a weaker lofted 3 wood, having around 16 degrees of loft on the club face. The added loft on the 4 wood results in a ball flight that will launch higher and land softer. This extra loft is also beneficial by offering more playability from a variety of lies.

If you are a player who struggles to get their ball in the air, then a 4 wood could well suit your game better than a 2 wood. If you are a player who hits their fairway woods too high, then a 2 wood might be a good choice for your game. Best bet is to see a club fitter to find the right equipment tailored to your golf game.

When it comes to choosing which fairway woods to carry in your bag, a 4 wood would be a wise choice for most players. The 4 wood offers more versatility offering playability from a variety of lies around the golf course. The 4 wood will not be the right choice for everybody though as some players will find the ball will fly too high with too much spin and may also leave a big distance gap between the driver and the 4 wood.

If you look in the bag of most golfers you will likely find a 3 wood. The 3 wood is a popular choice as the distance gap between the driver and 3 wood is usually married up nicely, and the 3 wood also offers some versatility by being playable from a variety of lies. The 3 wood is not the right choice for all players though and a custom fitting to find the right lofts of fairway woods to carry for each individual is recommended.
