Hybrid Golf Irons, A Good Short Iron Alternative for Some Golfers (Video) - by Pete Styles

You may be familiar with virtues of having hybrids in your bag to replace your long irons. But what about your short irons or your mid irons or even your wedges? If you're still struggling with those clubs in your bag and you prefer to take your hybrid clubs out, you should maybe consider replacing those clubs with hybrids right away. Through the bag particularly if you're struggling with distance and elevation.

Let’s say you're hitting your pitching wedge less than 70 to 75 yards. That clearly tells us that you're not generating a massive amount of clubhead speed. You're not probably hitting the ball therefore very high in the air. So a lighter golf club, something with maybe a graphite shaft and something with a little bit of a lower and deeper center of gravity might be beneficial for you.

I would consider trying out some hybrid golf clubs right away through the range. They might look a little bit different when they're sitting behind the golf ball but they have a really nice feel to them when you hit the golf ball particularly if you want to hit the ball higher up into the air. Also, if you're not good at striking down and taking a divot and you're not really punching into the turf, the sole of the hybrid golf cub is designed for a more sweeping angle of attack and, like I said before, with a low center of gravity and a sweeping angle of attack, the hybrid golf club could still get the golf ball to go nice and high up into the air. If you look at thomasgolf.com, they've got a nice range of wedges right through from wedges to mid irons, short irons and long irons, all within the hybrid range. So if you're struggling with your iron game yet you love hitting hybrids, consider taking the irons out and sweeping the board with the hybrids right away through your bag.
