  • M5 3HL or 5 wood?

    Hello everyone!

    I知 looking for some guidance to fit a spot in my bag. I知 currently playing a TaylorMade M5 Driver and a PXG Gen 2 0311X 3 driving iron. I知 looking to fill the gap with a new fairway wood.

    I have recently been given a TaylorMade M5 3 wood, which I can still exchange for a 5 wood if needed. The shaft I知 going to be playing is the Tensei Pro White 80TX at 42.75 length. The M5 3 wood is 43.25 and the 5 wood is 42.25.

    My question is if I should play a 3 wood lofted up to 17ー and play like a 4 wood at the in between length? Or get a 5 wood and play it at 19ー and 0.5粕 long?

    for reference, I致e generally had issues with 3 wood Lengths, and I play my irons 0.5 long and around 2ー upright. From what I致e been told going 2ー up on the 3 wood will close the face and make it more upright.

    Thank you everyone for your input!

    Why not go 3 hybrid, a lot more versatile

      Since you have the driving iron the 3HL makes more sense for the gap fill.
