Hybrids. The Ultimate Trouble Shot Club!

Today is July 3rd, 2018 and we present Hybrids.  The Ultimate Trouble Shot Club.  Trouble Shot Tuesday #95.  A Golf Video Blog with Mel Sole, Director of Instruction and Master Professional at the Mel Sole Golf School headquartered at Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club in Pawleys Island, SC.

Hybrids.  The Ultimate Trouble Shot Club!

Hybrids can be extremely useful to get yourself out of trouble on the golf course.  Hitting the ball low for out of the trees. Chipping around the green. And today, hitting the ball out of fairly thick rough!  The hybrids have a fairly low centre of gravity and therefore get the ball up in the air fairly easily. And because the shaft of a hybrid is slightly longer than the matching iron, it is far easier to get more clubhead speed, which you need when hitting out of thick rough.  In today’s PGA and LPGA Tours, the 2, 3 and 4 hybrids have become standard equipment in the player’s bags.

When purchasing hybrid clubs, make sure to hit them before you buy to make sure how far each of these clubs goes.  In my experience, the matching hybrid will go further in the air but stop fairly quickly.  For example, a 4 hybrid will go further in the air than a 4 iron, but the 4 iron will have more roll, so the end result will be about the same.
