Golf Monthly - - Gm Promotion -

KEY TECH­NOL­OGY The non-ad­justable M2 fair­way has a car­bon com­pos­ite crown that saves weight and re­po­si­tions it in more de­sir­able ar­eas to in­crease launch and for­give­ness. A larger, more open Speed Pocket in­creases ball speeds on shots struck low on the face and also helps re­duce spin. A fluted hosel saves weight and im­proves the feel and acous­tics.

GM RE­VIEW Looks The M2 fair­way has a low pro­file and mid-to-small head size at ad­dress. It’s ar­guably not the most con­fi­dence in­spir­ing to look down on but is still easy to align, thanks to the contrast be­tween the black face and white front sec­tion. Per­for­mance The M2 fair­way wood pro­vides dis­tance and ver­sa­til­ity with­out los­ing out on tra­jec­tory or for­give­ness. What strikes you in­stantly is the in­cred­i­bly hot feel off the face. It’s solid and ac­tu­ally quite firm, and cre­ates slightly muted acous­tics, but is still very pow­er­ful. This doesn’t re­ally change when hit­ting off the deck. The tra­jec­tory is sim­i­lar to that off the tee and carry dis­tance only came down by a few yards dur­ing test­ing. Per­for­mance from the fair­way was par­tic­u­larly im­pres­sive, with shots struck low on the face com­ing off fast and on a sim­i­lar launch an­gle. This is en­cour­ag­ing when hit­ting into par 5s, but the rel­a­tively low spin means the M2 fair­way is an ex­cel­lent op­tion off the tee as well. Con­sider this You may want a fair­way wood with a larger pro­file.

VER­DICT It’s long, for­giv­ing and ver­sa­tile. Most golfers will find they can hit all the shots they need to with this club.
