We all know that long irons are hard to hit. It’s rare that we see an average player with a 1, 2 or 3 iron in his or her bag. Hybrids are replacing these clubs but you are also seeing a lot of higher lofted woods being played too.
Woods with lofts higher then 20 degrees have been around for quite sometime. Adams Golf really led the way with their original “tight lies” series of woods. The original club, if our memory is correct was basically a very thin low profile strong 3 wood. The low profile design really allowed the golfer to move the club head through the rough easier. The result from the fairway was a higher ball flight and much easier “scoop” off tight or short grass lies.
From the success of the “Strong 3 Wood” a family of clubs was created: 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15 woods. All giving you a much easier chance of a solid hit combined with a higher ball flight and generally better control that you will see from your long irons. If you are looking for higher lofted woods, a thin profile our Yukon Shallow Face series are right up your alley.
