The TaylorMade Rescue Fairways have improved on the Rescue Mids design by making the face larger and the head deeper.

This gave much more of a wood feel to what is a rescue club design. The shorter shaft for this type of club also gave a lot of control.

It is designed to get the ball up in the air, but we found you can hit it low if you want to so it passed on the workability front. The contact was solid and pretty forgiving on off-centre hits so a real all round club for players needing help from all areas of the course.

Not bad for a steel headed club and a good buy, but we think there are better steel headed fairway woods out there.

An old club now but has stayed in my bag whilst I have renewed everything else. This is a fantastic golf club from the fairway, tight lies or out of the rough. It hits long and straight also stops quickly on greens, and a definite go to club if you find yourself in trouble as well. It's a real shame TaylorMade never continued upgrading this concept. It you can get one second hand buy it, I promise that you won't regret it.

The TaylorMade Rescue Fairway 3-Wood is very easy to hit and great to replace your long irons with. Hits high and straight, and stops quick. Great from the rough. I have the 7, 5, and 3. Please note that the clubs are not true to the number on them. The 3 hits more like a 5 wood, the 5 hits like a 7, and the 7 like a 9. That being said it gets some getting used to and I would consider the TaylorMade Rescue Fairways more of a hybrid than a true wood. I love these clubs. I have great confidence in them.
