The present invention is a unique fairway wood type golf club. The club is a fairway wood type golf club characterized by a long blade length with a long heel blade length section, while having a small club moment arm and a low center of gravity relative to a face height of the club, and all the benefits afforded therefrom. The fairway wood incorporates the discovery of unique relationships among key club head engineering variables that are inconsistent with merely striving to obtain a high MOIy using conventional golf club head design wisdom. The resulting fairway wood has a face closing moment of inertia (MOIfc) that provides golfers with a feel similar to that of a modern driver or hybrid golf club.
