Now as a golfer, it’s important to understand that we're only allowed to carry 14 clubs in our bag, the space in that bag is quite limited. So it's really important we maximize and we use those spaces nicely. And therefore we want to make sure that we don't have two golf clubs in our bag that are doing the same job. If you've got two irons that go the same distance, two wedges that go the same distance or importantly as I'm looking at today, a hybrid club and an iron that go the same distance, there's literally no point carrying both of those golf clubs.

You'll find that you'll start to use one more than the other, the other one is now redundant. Get it out of your bag, make space for another club to come in your bag. Like I said there’s fourteen clubs in your bag. They are quite important spaces. We definitely don't want two clubs that do the same thing. So I've got my hybrid club here, I've got a Thomas Golf AT725 Hybrid. This is the one with a square back and the beautiful alignment lines straight on top. So as I setup to this one, I point my alignment line dead at my target. And I am going to line up nicely. I'm going to knock it down there. That feels great off the face. And I'm going to measure how far that goes. I guess it’s around about two hundred yards with a carry for myself. This is the four hybrid at twenty four degrees of loft. Now what I now need to do is look in my bag and work out which club could this substitute. Which club would also go that distance? Now I know my yardages, I know my irons. It would replace my four iron. It stands to reason that Thomas Golf have got this correct. The four on the back here is going to be my four iron. Now it doesn't have to be guaranteed. It wouldn’t have to be a direct swap. It's just comparable for the distance that ball goes and the height that it carries. So if I'm hitting four irons on the golf course, I'm hitting them two hundred yards I could look at this particular thing. Well actually this goes more consistently. This goes straighter. This goes further. I can hit this in a better variety of different shots, and actually the club will go the same distance as my four. So it’s pretty much a straight swap. Now if you use the chart on the table with this video, you'll see how each of the hybrid club replaces either an iron or potentially an iron and a fairway wood. Let's say if I was hitting a fairway wood, maybe a seven wood, maybe even a nine wood, would go about the same distance as my four iron and the Thomas Golf Four Hybrid club. So I could get one clue out of my bag potentially if I've got an extra club in there, a nine wood. I could get rid of the nine wood as well and replace it with this one club. So when you're looking at adding in extra clubs to your bag, particularly adding in these hybrid clubs, don't think that you're going to end up with too many clubs in your bag. Because if one of these clubs can do the same job as an existing iron, particularly irons that you're not very comfortable hitting, then you're not going to end up with too many clubs. Because you put one of these in, you take one of the irons out and the chart on this page actually highlight which clubs Thomas Golf recommend that are going to be the direct comparable swaps. And having seen the way this club performs and the way I hit it out here on the driving range, I would suggest that this is going to be very comparable to my four iron. I could take my four iron out and put this in. I’d get the same distance. I might get an easier to swing club. I really like the alignment line on top that helps me point in the right direction. So it might be worthwhile changing, swapping one of the hybrid clubs for one of my irons.
