First of all, we need to accept that we're going to have to go up a club or two during winter.
We will all find ourselves further back on the fairway than during peak season, which means that you might need to hit a fairway wood off the deck to reach the green.
Fairway woods have been designed to be a lot easier to hit than a decade ago. Take this beauty from Cobra as an example: it boasts Baffler rails (remember them?) to help it glide through the turf for an incredibly easy launch.
It can be a tricky shot to play but with the right hardware and technique, we'll have you hitting greens for fun this winter.
