Any golfer that plays a lot of golf will always think they need another club for those difficult places on their golf course. This was my problem as we have several golf holes where you need to hit over the water to have your ball drop on the green. On some of our golf water holes one needs a high and long shot to get over or close to the green. Usually this type of shot take an iron from an 8 to a 4 or 5 depending on how close you are to the water. When playing golf it is different every day so you need to choose your club selection carefully. Long irons seem to be the hardest to hit and that is where the Big Bertha Heavenwood comes into play.
The Big Bertha Heavenwood is a new hybrid club that has become very popular for those who have a difficult time hitting long irons. It is shaped like a small wood especially when compared to my Great Big Bertha II woods as my driver is huge and the three and five wood also seem large compared to this #5 Heavenwood. I was talking to my daughter-in-law Jackie early in December when I was visiting in Fort Worth. I mentioned that I was thinking of ordering another Heavenwood as I already had the #3 Big Bertha hybrid. I was thinking of getting the #5 so I would have more loft to my shots. This #5 Heavenwood has a 26 degree loft just what I was looking for to get me over those water hazard approaches to the greens.
Later that month I received a notice from my son Russ that he was sending me a #5 Big Bertha Heavenwood for Christmas. I was amazed as never expected that but was thrilled and was anxious for it to arrive so I could put it to good use. Within a few days this neat little club arrived and I had to swing it a few time out in my yard. It felt comfortable, not too heavy and well balanced. The next day I had the chance to try using it on the most difficult golf hole on the course. I needed a long high drop shot over the Salado Creek to the green that sits right on the edge of the creek where the bank is covered with big rocks. It is the number one handicap hole and most of our women hate this hole, you can run up big numbers on this hole alone.
I was in the right place to use my new club and after a few practice swings to get a good feel of the club. I swung and the ball lifted high over that water hazard hit the green and rolled to the back edge. What a great feeling to make that shot and I knew this #5 Big Bertha Heavenwood would be a great addition to my set of golf clubs. I soon let Russ and Jackie know how much I appreciated their gift and it has proved to be a great asset on many other places on our golf course. Check with your Pro Shop and see if you can try this club out I am sure you will love the way it feels when you hit that ball.
I have used this club for a month, gave it a good work out and it is a great utility club.
