Equipment - Woods



ARNOLD PALMER THE STANDARD:
A forged titanium head in classic pear-shaped design. Deep face with enlarged hitting area. Comes with Aldila controlled flex span system shaft.
AUSTRALIA PROLINE M-FORCE:
Much like the driver of the same set, the running sole is designed to reduce "chunking," especially with difficult lies.
CALLAWAY STEELHEAD III:
Redesigned stainless steel head using patented Variable Face Technology to increase both head volume and ideal hitting area. More perimeter weighting and redesigned sole than previous model. Loft range from 13 (strong 3) to 25 (11-wood).
CALLAWAY HAWKEYE VFT:
Larger titanium head uses Variable Face Technology to make most efficient impact zone. Like all Callaway metal woods, has “draw bias” to counteract fades and slices. Availbe in 2 through 9 wood, 13 to 23 degree lofts.
COBRA KING COBRA SS:
Hyper steel fairway woods from strong 3 through 9. Oversized classic heads. Maraging steel in 3 and strong 3, stainless in 5 through 9. Aldila HM tour graphite shaft standard.
EOS X-20:
17-4 high-tensile stainless steel. Oversized head with 100 per cent graphite crosswound shafts with high kickpoint.
GEAR FOR GOLF:
Steel-headed three wood has optimum weighting to produce wider sweet spot, as well as lower centre of gravity to promote getting ball airborne. Sole design prevents scuffing or grabbing that may slow club up. Attractive black metallic head.
KASCO DNA SUPER HYTEN FS:
The DNA fairway woods are the newest model from the fast-rising company. The club is made from Kasco’s Super Hyten, a patented alloy twice as hard as titanium. The material creates a higher initial velocity and reduced spin rate when compared to titanium. Has a bore-through shaft for improved stability.
MIZUNO BLUE RAGE:
Patented Grain Flow Forging optimizes feel, forgiveness and distance. “Cortech” multi-thickness stainless-steel face and new sole design. External rails and bounce channels prevent drag. Comes with Dynamic Gold shaft.
ORLIMAR TRIMETAL:
Thin-faced fairway woods made from extremely hard materials produce hot shots with boring, penetrating ball flight. Comes in a classic head shape with precisely milled bulge and roll face for great trajectory.
ORLIMAR TRIMETAL HIPSTEEL:
Successor to famous original TriMetal fairway wood uses new Carpenter Steel alloy and “Hot Isostatic Processing” for metal that is 5 per cent harder and 10 per cent stronger than original. Lofts range from 12 to 22 degrees.
RAM FX:
Ideal for mid- to high-handicappers. Sole design keeps weight low and towards heel. Toe weight increases throughout the range of 3, 5, and 7 woods to maximize accuracy.
TAYLORMADE 200 SERIES:
The choice of Mike Weir and Retief Goosen, among others. Proprietary aspects include Powerband Crown, Powerframe Technology, trapezoidal sole pad, internal weight pad and dual rail sole. Lofts range from 13 to 24 degrees.
TAYLORMADE 300 SERIES:
Mid-size head, railed sole plate to faciliate extracting balls from heavy lies. Powerband crown lines allow for easy alignment and consistency. Lite shaft standard, improved Bubble Lite shaft or custom shafts optional.
TAYLORMADE 320 TOUR:
Deep-faced design gives penetrating trajectory preferred by better players. Railed sole plate. Fairway Tour shaft (.350” tip) is firmer in tip for better ball striking.
TAYLORMADE RAYLOR:
Updated classic. Low-profile, dimpled head made of high-strength 455 stainless steel. Lower centre of gravity than original Raylor to increase launch angle and playability.
TITLEIST 975F PRO TRAJECTORY:
Classic pear-shaped head with low centre of gravity and increased face roll. Beveled leading edge is radiused and sole plate is crowned for playability from all lies. Internal weighting forward biased to flatten trajectory.
TOMMY ARMOUR 845S:
17-4 stainless-steel heads available in lofts ranging from 15 to 23. Higher, softer landing shots with increased accuracy.
TOMMY ARMOUR HTS:
HTS stands for higher tensile steel from which this club is made. Allows for a thinner, more responsive clubface. The low-profile club is made from 17-4 stainless steel and produces higher, softer landing shots.
TOUR EDGE BAZOOKA F4:
Four-piece, forged 6A4V titanium head is designed to battle slices. Sole weighting technology incorporates internal disks in heel to help close face at impact. Ultra-light, low-kickpoint shaft optimizes launch angle.
WILSON DEEP RED:
Weight concentrated back and low to promote higher ball flight and more forgiveness. Deep face increases vertically through set, making 7- and 9-woods easy to hit from deep rough. Barely meets RCGA/USGA COR limit. Special fairway Fat Shaft.
YONEX V-MASS 350:
Maraging custom 465 steel Power-Wave Face, stainless steel head with tungsten insert. Lofts range from 15 to 21 degrees.
