Video Golf Tip | Utility Woods

One of the clubs that every amateur golfer should have in his bag is a utility metal wood. These are also called hybrid clubs; they are a combination between an iron and a metal fairway wood. They are small heads with an extremely low profile; you can see that the golf ball goes well over the top of the club. That means that when you put the golf ball down on the ground it looks easy to hit. Now this club I have in my hand is a 22-degree Kasco K2K fairway metal, and it is unbelievably easy to hit. You can hit this thing out of any lie. Now other companies make similar clubs, but this club right here is an absolute lifesaver because it is so easy to hit. With Kasco we do a set of the future, which goes up to only a 5-iron—no 4-iron, no 3-iron, no 2-iron, we go to these fairway metals instead. So I will hit one shot for you just as a demonstration. What you can even do is just step on the ball, plug it into the ground, and when you hit the golf shot it will come right out of the plugged lie. It is unbelievable the types of shots you can hit with these new types of golf clubs. I suggest you take a look at them.

Tee Time Deals

Friday, Mar 23 to Wednesday, Mar 28

Waggle Before You Swing The waggle during the set up is a very important part of the swing because it keeps your muscles relaxed so that you can start your swing smoothly
Hitting from Deep Rough Use a steeper swing with a slightly open clubface, but make sure you get back on the fairway
Reading Downhill Putting Greens Always read your putts from the low side of the slope and the low side of the break
