Also known as a 1-wood. The 1-wood has the largest head of any golf club and provides golfers the potential to hit a long shot.

Notable 1-wood shot: Arnold Palmer reaches the green on the 346-yard 1st hole at the 1960 U.S. Open, starting his charge from seven shots down to win the tournament. That’s the signature shot of Palmer’s only U.S. Open crown.

Fairway Woods

A 3-Wood is a versatile club that can provide players accuracy off the tee or from the fairway.

Primarily considered a fairway wood, the 5-wood club has enough loft to help shots land softly on the green. Can also be used for shots from the rough, if the lie isn’t too bad.

Notable 3-wood shot: Gene Sarazen double eagles the 15th hole at the 1935 Masters with a 4-wood, a close cousin of the 3-wood. It’s the first double eagle in Masters history and one of only three in the tournament’s storied history.

Notable 5-wood shot: Corey Pavin hits a 5-wood from 230 yards to within six feet on the final hole of the 1995 U.S. Open. He won the tournament by two shots.
