What if I told you that what you thought was a 17° was actually a 15° or a 19°? Do you wonder why your fairway woods see to all hit the same distance? Are you suffering because you have no gap control?
Paying attention now? Whatever loft is written on the sole of your fairway wood is probably wrong. To be more exact, in our study we found that 92% of the time it’s wrong!
With most things that you buy, you have the ability to verify that you’re getting what you asked for. When you buy a dozen eggs, you can open the carton to verify that you’re not getting eleven eggs instead of twelve. This is not the case when buying a fairway wood. When you buy a fairway wood, you simply have to trust that the manufacturer has accurately labeled the club
It’s hard to make thousands of fairway woods with the exact same loft. As a result, club makers accept that there will be some variation from club to club. The industry-standard tolerance is 1° above or below the “target” loft.
What is the solution to this? It’s pretty simple; use a club builder that can have the fairway wood actually measured for EXACT loft! With our line of Tom Wishon products, we can ask for an exact loft and lie, it will be measured, tagged and sent to use to build your new favorite golf club.
