Do you use your fairway woods?
How often do you pull out your old reliable? Research would suggest not enough, especially if you struggle to find the fairway on a consistent basis.
You might think that you’re worried about hitting your driver because you’re worried about making a mistake. But what you’re actually afraid of is the consequence of that mistake, which is why minimising the risk lets you be confident, not cautious, with driver in hand.
You can do this by eliminating misses to one side. For example, in the above illustration, eliminating that right-side miss will take away the danger of a water hazard and any penalty strokes. Suddenly you’re looking at missing to the left, which isn’t the end of the world, or striping one down the runway.
Looking at the high-performing TaylorMade SIM2 driver range, you’ll find that the SIM2 Max D driver – designed to draw the ball and avoid hitting it right - would be ideal for the hole shown above. You could give it a good old whack and get further down the fairway without being scared of losing balls in the water and totting up the score.
Of course, that’s just an example. You can watch the video to learn more about TaylorMade SIM2 drivers and ask yourself the question of how they can help you.
