2009 Woods Buyer's Guide
|Macgregor MT Fairway |
Key Feature: It’s a steel clubhead, but the Cup Face design creates a huge sweet spot and added strength behind the ball at impact.
What We Like: These clubs look like a Tour pro hand-carved them with clean, straight lines. Upon hitting them, it’s
a different story. They were built so anyone can hit high, long shots.
Who It’s For: Virtually any type of player, ranging from professionals to average golfers who want pure playability.
Specs: Comes in four lofts (13°, 15°, 16.5°, 18°) with MT proprietary graphite.

| Mizuno F-60 |
Key Feature: A sloped crown shape that moves weight away from the clubface and, in doing so, ups the club’s MOI.
What We Like: The 20% larger clubface, which creates a larger sweet spot. It features four weighted cavities in the rear of the sole that provide strategic internal weighting and lower the CG.
Who It’s For: Golfers who need a driver that gets the ball in the air and down the fairway, even on mis-hits. Folks who slice should pick up their draw model.
Specs: Comes in four different lofts and five shaft options. Only LH is 10.5°.

| Nickent 3DX RC |
Key Feature: Its maximum triangular geometry helps produce long shots whether you hit it flush or not.
What We Like: It features the highest MOI and the largest sweet spot of any Nickent fairway wood ever made. Oh, and its deep clubface helps reduce spin, thereby creating a long and penetrating ballflight.
Who It’s For: Golfers who tend to miss the sweet spot; folks who don’t mind the triangular address profile.
Specs: Comes in three different lofts (16°, 19°, 22°) and five shaft options.
