Number 2 Driver – Fairway Wood – Golf Video
So when you can still be looking at a 2-wood or a 2-driver, there's two ways of thinking about this really: either you think about it as a lofted driver or you think about it as a strong 3-wood. But either way, there's probably a little gap there for someone who wants to hit the ball a long way off the tee but really can't handle the length, or the look, or the loft on an actual driver. Or for somebody who's comfortable hitting a 3-wood off the tee because they like the shape and the size of the head, yet they feel the 3-wood has a little bit too much loft that it just pops up the ball in the air too much for them, and they want a bit more distance.
So a 2-driver has around about 12 degrees of loft. It's quite lofted for a driver, but a 3-wood would maybe have 13, 14, 15 degrees of loft, so it's quite strong for a 3-wood. So a 2-driver's fits nicely in that gap. It's a little bit shorter than a driver shaft, it has a slightly smaller head with more loft, so it is going to be easier to hit. So if you feel that you actually hit the ball quite a long way, but you really struggle with consistency and accuracy, and you're losing too many golf balls, a 2-driver might be something that would be suitable for you. Or like I say, if you're happy with hitting a 3-wood but you just want to try and get an extra few yards to keep it with your mates, maybe a 2-driver would work for yourself.
So get yourself down a driving range, try out some nice lofted 2-drivers, or have a look at thomasgolf.com and see what they have to offer for you.
