Years ago, golfers had to rely purely on skill (and some luck) in using long irons, which feature thin blades with small sweet spots and very little loft.
Many PGA Tour players now use hybrid clubs, which manufacturers constantly develop and perfect. It is an understatement to say that hybrids are the future of golf. Below are just some of the reasons to try them yourself:
Straighter shots: Many golfers find hybrids help immensely with accuracy due to the clubs’ increased MOI (Moment of Inertia). The clubs have the length of an iron but the larger, shaped head of a fairway wood, making them easier to hit than the traditional long iron.
Versatility: Hybrids are designed to get the ball out of high grass and difficult lies. They’re also ideal for players who prefer to sweep the ball off the turf.
Higher, steeper, better: Hybrid irons deliver higher ball flight and a steeper descent than long irons, so shots hold the green better on landing.
Improved contact: Unlike long irons, hybrids assure you of solid contact no matter where the ball is hit on the face.
Less stress: Hybrids are perfect for recreational players who do not want to be too stressed while playing a game.
Since these clubs make shots easier, they make the game much more enjoyable. Nevertheless, many professionals and skilled amateurs use hybrids for lowering their scores.
With all the benefits hybrid clubs offer, a birdie is never too far way.
