Like TaylorMade claim, these fairway woods are very easy to hit. The 5-wood is particularly good from all lies, including the semi-rough and it glides through the grass to get the ball airbourne with the minimum of ease. Like the driver, the R580 fairway wood is deisgned to get the ball high in the air and this is fine if you are not hitting into the wind. If you really got for it into the wind the ball can balloon a little, but this is really a club for the higher handicapper, so this may not be a problem. It looks good and sits well so we would recommend this for anyone who finds fairway woods tricky to use.
