Gift Guide: Fairways & Hybrids

Often times in a round, you find yourself just short of distance with your long irons and can’t stand to lose another chance at notching a birdie on that par-5. Here’s a look at the fairways and hybrids available this holiday season that will help the golfer on your list make it over that hazard and into scoring position.

Titleist 913

The 913 fairways and hybrids, like the 913 driver released late last year are a new — and improved — take on the successful 910 models released in 2010.


Callaway FT-Optiforce

Designed with the same characteristics as the FT Optiforce Driver, the line’s fairway woods, which can come with stock Project X Velocity shaft are super light and will undoubtedly help the golfer on your list gain those extra yards needed to carry.


TaylorMade SLDR

The TaylorMade driver has already seen success on the tour and in the market. Now, the technology and features, including the ultra-adjustability and low center of gravity, are available in the SLDR fairway woods.

Callaway X Hot Pro

Anyone that has had the opportunity to hit one of Callaway’s clubs from the X Hot line knows well that the ball simply jumps off the face. The line’s fairways are no different. You’ll go deep with ease thanks to Callaway’s ‘forged speed frame face cup.’

Cobra Baffler XL

Finally, the Baffler XL fairway woods and hybrids are designed for distance and launch, which is exactly what high-handicap players need assistance with during their round.


Adams Idea Tech

This club is rock solid and a beast on distance. Adams’ ambitious approach to design and face flexibility has certainly paid off, providing players upwards of 10 additional yards on flush hits.


Adams Tight Lies

After changing the fairway-wood game back in the mid-1990s, Adams has granted Tight Lies a triumphant return. The new model features an enhanced center of gravity to help you get the ball up and out of nearly any lie.


Nike Covert

The first ‘cavity back’ driver made waves earlier this year. The sharp design and new technology transferred very well to its the line’s fairway woods. The NexCOR face and cavity-back club head promote plenty of height and distance.


Tour Edge XCG6

A bit underrated, Tour Edge turns out some terrific drivers and fairway woods. The XCG6 line was new in early 2013 but remains a winner on and off tour. Brandt Snedeker uses the fairway woods, which maintain the nickname as the ‘longest fairway woods in golf.’

Tour-Exotics is devoted to the 99.7% of golfers who aren’t pros. Their content is gearedtowards players who are serious about taking their game to a competitive level, whether that means winning the 4th flight of the Club Championship, or qualifying for the US Amateur.
