A hybrid golf club is a specialized golf club used to improve a golfer’s overall performance. It is a golf club composed of both iron and wood. It allows the golfer to experience the advantages of both advantageous components.
It is used when the golfer needs the ball to remain airborne for longer distances and to obtain more accurate shots. The newer hybrid clubs offer a design that allows better distance control and increased accuracy.
The centre of gravity is towards the bottom of the club which is ideal as it aids better launch and control of the ball. The club also has the added feature of a flatter clubface and shorter shaft.
Additionally, it has runners at the bottom that allow it to react more favorably with the grass on impact. However, if you are not well-versed at the game you will not necessarily make better shots with the club without learning the essentials.
Things You Will Need
- A Hybrid Club
- Position the ball in the middle of your stance as if shooting with a 7-iron club. Grasp the club’s handle in the same way you would a fairway wood or long iron. Swing the club with precision aiming for the waiting, correctly positioned ball.
- Make a firm impact with the ball as If using a middle or short iron. The hybrid will transform this impact into a long and high shot.
- Make the hybrid your club of choice for long shots or shots that require greater dexterity. Use it particularly in the fairway or in the rough. This club will redeem you from this daunting position in the rough much more easily than using the long iron.
- Use the hybrid to hit off the tee. If you’ve always used the fairway wood for this purpose then you should be able to fully fathom the adaptability of the hybrid. Position the ball in the middle of your stance once again and tee low with the target aligned for greater accuracy.
- Pitch off the green using the hybrid. Apply your regular pitch and run swing.
Do’s and Dont’s
- Make full use of the hybrid’s potential and make it essential among your golf clubs.
