Phoenix Fairway Wood
The new grindworks Phoenix series is a premium line of performance golf clubs made for golden age golfers, in other words, senior golfers with a lifetime of golfing experiences. With many years of experiences of his own, grindworks club designer Doc Niimi has devoted his focus to studying the art of golf and has created this special line of clubs with a focus on feeling as well as performance. The Phoenix series specifically targets male golfers 60 years and older and lady golfers of any age who want that extra distance and forgiveness.
To compliment the original release of the Phoenix Driver Hi-Cor, we’ve added fairway woods and utilities designed to carry over that same ease of use and distance performance.
The FW and UT are both weighted for easy high launch draw ball trajectories. The deep center of gravity of he FW makes it easy to launch the ball off the turf or off the tee. The shallow face also makes it easier to catch the ball in the sweet spot which helps increase smash factor and ball speeds. A larger gravity angle helps the head rotate to the ball square, minimizing shots right and improving impact for better distance and direction.
The Phoenix Fairway Wood also features higher lofts and larger heads, all to help promote more confidence and ease of use.
The FW and UT also share the following technologies:
SLIDE RAIL SYSTEM (SRS)
When playing a ball off the deck, the fairway wood will typically strike the ground before impact with the ball. This impact creates friction across the entire sole, slowing down the speed of the club through the impact zone and sometimes even taking it off the target line.
By utilizing a dual rail system, friction is minimized by having just the rails touch the ground at impact. The dual rails also guide the head straight through to impact.
Better impact equals better ball speeds, distance and direction.
INTERSECT ALIGNMENT AID (IAA)
We’ve designed an alignment aid that gives golfer’s confidence both at address and when they swing the club. The contrasting white head with black diamond shape helps the golfer visually pin point their impact. The shape of the diamond helps guide them through the proper swing path. The diamond point on the head actually gives the golfer the visual image during the swing of the head converging on the ball at impact.
At grindworks we believe that golf clubs must not only perform on the course but feel great doing so. Because of that we use a soft but strong thin maraging face paired with a sturdy 6-4 Titanium body. This helps create increased repulsion for more ball speeds and a pleasant feel and sound at impact.
The Phoenix Fairway Wood can be custom built to each players own specs. Please contact your grindworks dealer for more details. An original grindworks headcover is included with each head.
