Just as a worker shouldnt blame his tools, a golfer shouldnt blame his clubs! Well Im blaming my 3 wood. Mentally, my old Titleist 3 wood has lost me, we needed to go our seperate ways having grown apart. Its not me, its the club. So went down to see the Pro at Growling Frog golf club, Wayne Rogers and took a couple of 3 woods out to the driving range for a test drive.
- Callaway – 2007 Big Bertha
- Callaway – XHot
- Callaway – Big Bertha Diablo Draw
The Diablo draw is a nice looking club but at address, the closed face looked wrong and I was unable to hit it straight with everything hooking left. The Xhot and Bigh Bertha were both easy to hit off the tee and fairway once I had stopped swinging wildly and slowed the tempo down (And they were older floor stock so 50% off!). Both still had a tendancy to hook if i was lazy but thats my swing not the club! The club head for the Xhot and Big Bertha are larger than my current 3 wood, and the Bertha was nicer on off centre shots.
In the end had a quick chat with Wayne and went with the Big Bertha, especially as the stiff shaft will suit my game.
Only time will tell if this becomes the go-to club if the driver is misfiring or need accuracy off the tee.
