Gotta agree with this.  I can also say I rarely see anyone attempting to pull it off as well.  Players seem to keep the 3W in the bag unless it’s off the tee box.  Goes for me as well.

Semi-strange, I’m pretty consistent with my 5W but extremely inconsistent with the 3.

The guys I play with pull the 3-wood all the time. They will be like 250 out, and I know there is no way even if they flush it that they are going to make it to the green. Then they top it lol.

Maybe they are thinking like I do... a topped 3W goes further than a topped hybrid.  I know it does!  I've measured it!!  😆

And how many guys do you see practicing with a 3 wood on the range? BTW, my fitter told me to take it out of the bag - he replaced it with a 5 wood dialed down to 17* - it works a lot better.

I practice with mine all the time basically because I don’t carry a driver. I use mine in the fairway as well doesn’t go as far as on a tee, big shock I know, but I do hit it well.

Does my mind good to see someone else who does not carry a driver, though I don't do well with the 3W either, realized this summer after trying the TaylorMade M3 3W once again it is heavier than I can properly swing and I am well beyond considering a Bryson style strengthening program.  I actually hit hybrids off the fairway better than I can off the tee.

It’s ok my new hybrid carries the same as my 3w

Somewhere on MGS I was reading a thread about hitting a 3wood off the deck.  On Wednesday I play with a small group that is serious but generally average golfers like me.  I knew 2 of these guys hit a 3wood often off the deck today was no different.  
My Cart Partner on the Front 9 hit it 3-4 times off the deck and all the shots were crushed.  The other guy in 2nd Cart also hit the 3wood 2-3 times and he also hit it very well.  
it can be done……not by me.

Boy it didn't take long!!

I played a week ago and the fairways were still green. This week they are already dormant and a tan color. Even though they still play the same, it's just not as visually appealing.  I drive through the pearly gates of the course, hear the angels of the course singing to me, then bam....... visually depressed. It all goes away on the first tee though. It's also harder to see a white ball on the light tan grass. Time to change colors.

That sounds like an opportunity!  Was just trying to imagine what colors would have better contrast on a tan color fairway.  Would be interested in your first perspective on what works better and what doesn't.

I've been thinking of switching up balls for fall golf and been seriously considering the MaxFli Tour in optic yellow, but don't want to draw attention from @Yellow Ball.  He seems to like finding the water a bit too much for my tastes.

I tend to be more golf active on Instagram and follow a wide spectrum of golf Instagramers. So I often enter “contests” in the hopes of winning some free gear. Well, for the first time I won something, a PXG hat that one of their brand ambassadors gave away. 😃

Quite the opposite. I don't like the water. If all you nimrod's didn't hit me in the water I'd be much happier. My specialty is finding my way out of the water to live to play another day. 

Did I ever tell you about my encounter with the snapping turtle. That SOB though I was one of her eggs and tried to burry me. I had to roll my dimples off to get out of there.  I don't like water.
