    Ross, would your fairway techniques and video apply to a Five Wood? Would anything be different from a Three Wood? I just got one and will head out to the range with it tomorrow. TY.

    Hi Ed
    Not really. Remember, as you practice, you can experiment a little bit with the ball position. You can get different results if you impact a 5 wood just before the bottom of the swing arc, vs. right at the bottom of the swing arc. You can tell by the small divot vs. no divot. If you impact just before the bottom, it might give you a little spin and a bit more sit down… but just before impact, can also kill the shot if there is a face wind and you’ll come up short.
