Golf Hybrids Frequently Asked Questions
What is a hybrid golf club?
Hybrid golf clubs offer versatility to a golfer’s game. They merge the accuracy and swing technique of a golf iron with the distance and forgiveness of a fairway wood. They’re very popular with recreational and casual golfers because of their ease of use, higher launch angle, increased ball spin, and softer ball landing.
How to hit a hybrid golf club?
Hit with a hybrid club using the same swing mechanic as an iron, centring the ball to your stance and hitting down on it. Square your feet and shoulders, stand with your feet to the target, and line your hands up with the ball placement. Refrain from using a sweeping motion, instead hitting the ball on the hybrid’s descent.
How to choose a hybrid golf club?
The best hybrid golf clubs are popular because of their versatility, but what makes a good hybrid club and how do you choose one? Well, you need to first start with knowing which clubs you’re replacing with a hybrid. First consider the loft of the clubs you’re replacing. Hybrids with a low loft can replace your 3-wood or 5-wood, hybrids with a moderate loft can replace a 5- or 7-wood and even 3- or 4-irons. If you need a hybrid with a higher loft, then you can replace a 9-wood with one, but these suggestions do depend on your swing speed and play style.
Do you need a hybrid golf club?

Many recreational to intermediate players prefer using hybrid’s because they’re forgiving to their play style and form a happy medium between a wood and an iron. You can use them almost all over the golf course for long and mid-range shots, and even the pros like Jason Duffner and Jimmy Walker have been known to use hybrid golf clubs.
