Reasons to Try Hybrid Golf Clubs (Video)

I am sure you are aware of that golf is quite a difficult game by now and if I could give you something that would make the game easy, and most people would take that as a good option maybe you enjoy the game a little bit more, you have a little bit more fun out in the golf course.

Now one of the things that come into the game over the last sort of 5, 10 years is hybrid golf clubs, hybrid irons, a lot of people putting these in their bag now because they are finding the long irons traditionally 3, 4, 5 iron and you know if you have got a 1 and 2 iron hanging around in your bag, I am sure you will find that very difficult to hit. So all the way to about a 5 iron, now people deciding that hybrid clubs are actually better for them a lot the times you get a graphite shaft in your hybrid club, makes the shaft a bit lighter therefore swings of it quicker, makes the head a little bit heavier so it feels heavier in the swing. Lots of the weight on a hybrid club is low and deep in the sole of the golf club so it fires the ball up a little bit higher. So if you are struggling to get your long irons away and up into the air, a hybrid club might be the option for you.

Also quite versatile when the lie isn't particular good so if you got a ball that’s sitting down in the long grass or in the semi rough to the side of the fairway, the hybrid club will be much easier to hit from that lie than say traditional long iron. Due to the size and nature of the club head with a lot of weight around the outside and underneath it’s actually fairly forgiving club head maybe a bigger hitting area than your 3 and 4 iron and a much more forgiving club head as well. So your good shots will be good, but also your off center hits will be a little bit better with a hybrid club also.

The one last thing to consider is that the trajectory of the shot coming into a green because you have got this center of gravity, that’s under the ball, the flight on the ball will be a little bit higher. Now that looks nice and it looks pretty but also when it gets to the other end of the flight and it comes down and lands on the green, your hybrid clubs, your hybrid irons will often have a more vertical descending approach to the green and therefore when it lands on the green, one or two bounces and it will stop a bit quicker, whereas a 3 or 4 iron might be a little bit more of a penetrating flight, which when it lands on the green might release off through the back of the green. So if you play a golf course where you have a lot of carries in front of the green maybe big bunkers of water houses you have to clear and then get ball to stop on the green fairly quickly, a hybrid club could be a really good addition to your bag as well.
