One of those keys to playing well is to put the ball in play off of the tee if you want to lower one’s score. While the long ball is great to brag to your buddies about, it will be a long walk toward the 19th hole if most of your drives are finding more of other people’s fairways than the ones you were aiming at, if at all. Easier than saying “find me a fairway finder for Father’s Day” in rapid succession, here are three alternatives to drivers you can hit off of the tee for your next time out on the course.

Thrive when you drive
Annually one, if not our best-selling tee clubs year after year isn’t a driver at all, but a club called a Thriver. The name is a combination of a three wood and a driver and the clubhead itself derived from the best attributes of both. We actually have two of these; Acer XS Thriver and Acer XF Thriver. They are the same size as a regular confidence-building driver with a high rebound face with two small differences. First, the head is 10 grams heavier. This allows for a 1” shorter club that is easier to get the meat of the face on the ball as well as squaring up the face at impact. Secondly, it has the loft of a 3-wood and we all know how much easier it is to hit it straighter than a driver.

Get down to brass tacks
When the driver is going awry you always have your 3-wood to fall back on. But then you look at its small size and all the sudden you don’t have the same confidence when you pulled it out of your bag when you go to address the ball. There is a solution to that called the Power Play Wrap Speed Brassie. First of all, it is not a 3-wood otherwise we would have called it a 3-wood. The Brassie has a very large footprint at address. If it had the face height of a typical driver, it would have had a volume of 380cc. The importance is that it makes it 24% more forgiving on off-center shots than a typical 3-wood.

Iron out your long game
Yet another example of a fairway finder is our Dynacraft Driving Iron. At 18º, it produces a piercing trajectory to get some added roll out after it lands. Being an iron, it will be a shorter, more manageable club length to hit the sweet spot and actually have the ball land in the vicinity you aimed at. It has a special vacuum heat treated, high-strength 17-4 stainless forged face to provide superior distance over a traditional iron. It is hollow-bodied to give added forgiveness like a hybrid, but in a package that look a traditionalist will appreciate.

1 Comment on 3 Golf Fairway Finders for Father’s Day

  1. Rob C says:

    Hi everyone,
    I have a low-mid 90’s swing speed when I want to stay in balance. I also became a half a century old and do not anticipate getting more flexible than what I am. For the last several years, I have had driver’s as long as the 50 inch Killer Bee, the legal 4 foot Cobra Long Tom several new drivers in the 45.5 to 46 inch range. NONE of them helped my handicap go down. I still averaged about 5 fairways a round and my best scores were posted when I scrambled well that day. Then it hit me. I did some extensive research on which head and which shaft available on the market are being billed as fairway finders. My thinking was to marry the 2 together to build a super fairway finder. Thus, my 44 inch Thriver with Nunchuk shaft was born. I absolutely love the club. I have increased distance because I do not need to hold back to maintain balance. The shorter shaft allows me to give a good rip at it. The ball absolutely flies off the all titanium Thriver face and the soft center and xtra stiff tip of the Nunchuk helps keep the sidespin low. The result is a medium launch ball flight with nice roll out. The shorter shaft allows me to work the ball with more confidence as well. For a power fade, I tee the ball forward, stand a little further away, and aim slightly left. I do this when I absolutely want to take no chances and will sacrifice distance for a near guaranteed shot on the short grass. When I want as much as I can get on more open fairways, I just rip through the ball and get a nice baby draw. I am in the process of building a nunchuk/acer titanium xs 3 wood and 5 wood. I am going to play the 14 degree 3 wood at 42.75 inches and the 5 wood at 42 inches. Two 14 degree clubs in my bag? So what. The scorecard doesn’t know any better.
