With the help of Golf Laboratories’ swing-robot, GOLF’s 2023 ClubTest continues to deliver robotic testing insights on the newest equipment releases. We continue our fairway wood insights with the 5 models designed for launching it low. And click here to get the full rundown on every fairway wood for ’23.
We recently covered fairway woods with the highest launch angles in the industry. Now we’re shifting the focus to those with a penetrating flight.
If you’re wondering who could most benefit from a 15-degree fairway wood (the loft our robot tested) with a low launch, it’s golfers on the higher end of the speed spectrum who struggle with excess launch and spin. It could also be a great option for someone who needs a reliable secondary option off the tee.
Our recent robotic testing (95 mph) with Golf Laboratories’ swing robot revealed 5 offerings with lower-than-average launch angles. Check them out below. (Note: The launch angle is an average of 18 balls struck out of the geometric center, high toe and low heel.)
