Fairway woods have a broader sole and larger head than hybrids and are hit further, but lower. Hybrids are more forgiving and easier to hit than long irons or fairway woods. Hybrids are typically used to replace some of the more difficult to hit long irons in the average golfer's bag.

  • Both fairway wood or hybrid works good for distance shots. Fairway wood, just as the name implies, is used generally for hitting shots directly off the turf of the fairway. On the other hand, hybrid clubs combine the use of wood and iron clubs together so you can hit longer shots easily and accurately.

I do not use a fairway wood currently. I've tried over the years but have found that, for me, there is a loss of control with the longer shaft lengths that the fairways have. I carry 3 Titleist hybrids, 21, 24, 27 that I have tweaked from time to time for loft and lie. I find that I can control the shorter hybrids a bit better.

Fairway woods will hit the highest, followed by hybrids/driving irons/traditional irons. When i do fittings i check ball speed, if a guy is getting the same ball speed with the 4 iron as he gets with the 5 iron its time for a hybrid for the 4 iron equivalent - comparatively speaking a 7 wood will typically cover a 3/4 iron/ hybrid and a 5 wood typically covers what would be a 1/2 iron/hybrid.

Hybrids are designed to replace long (and even mid) irons. Compared to fairway woods, the shafts of hybrids are shorter and the heads are smaller. By contrast, a hybrid will be longer and have a bigger head than any of your irons. What makes hybrids suitable replacements for long irons is their deeper club heads.

Fairway woods tend to hit the ball greater distances with lower spin, they are clubs designed mainly for distance. Hybrids are clubs designed to be an easier to hit version of long irons and so they spin the ball more. Hybrids tend to have a higher ball flight and so can stop the ball on the green faster.

The hybrid’s clubhead is dense, with a lower and deeper center of gravity than a fairway wood’s clubhead. This makes the hybrid more forgiving of mis-hits, and makes it easier to get the ball in the air. Additionally, the fairway wood has a much broader sole, roughly twice as large as a comparable hybrid.

A 5 wood is meant to fly higher with a steeper angle of decent. Hybrids typically roll out more. I generally like hybrids better off the fairway. The smaller face typically gives me more confidence. If you have access to an outdoor fitting I would take advantage of the opportunity. Best of luck.

I discovered in 2006 that I fared better with a 7 wood vs a 3/19 hybrid. The best I have hit a 20 hybrid is 180 yards, whereas I've hit a 7 wood over 200 yards quite often. A fairway wood just has that "knock the snot out of it" feeling. MY two cents is the 7 wood is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

3 Hybrid vs 5 Fairway Wood… I have a Founders Club 5 wood in the garage from 1990/91 that is the same length and club head shape as my Titleist 3 hybrid circa 2018… I generally hit my 5 wood a bit farther off the deck than my 3 hybrid (220 vs 210), and my 5 wood actually has a much lower ball flight, ...

dalillama47: “The Ping will be a little easier to elevate from the fairway, other than that I like the Titleist on every other account. Feel, sound, etc. If you have a 16.5* TSi, it may go as far as the Ping 14.5*, and be very easy to elevate from the fairway.”
