Hybrid Golf Clubs – The Club That Does It All
Combine the desirable qualities of irons and fairway woods into one club. Discover how hybrid golf clubs for men can benefit your game.
Decide which clubs you want to replace with easier-to-hit hybrid golf clubs. Loft options include 2H, 3H, 4H and 5H for right and left-handed players.
Choose hybrids and rescue clubs from the top brands in golf, including TaylorMade, Titleist, PING, Callaway, Cleveland, ADAMS GOLF, Cobra, Nike, Nickent, Tour Edge and Wilson.
Match your hybrid golf clubs to the irons or fairway woods they replace. Generally, this is how hybrids, fairway woods and irons match up:
- Hybrid 2H = 5 Wood = 1 or 2 Iron
- Hybrid 3H = 6 Wood = 2 or 3 Iron
- Hybrid 4H = 7 Wood = 3 or 4 Iron
- Hybrid 5H = 9 Wood = 4 or 5 Iron
Use the above chart as a starting point for experimentation. Hybrids and fairway woods hit the ball higher and with more back spin than the equivalent iron.
Get hybrids with the same length and loft as the clubs you replace to avoid distance gaps.
Pay attention to whether your hybrid is offset. Slight offset – similar to an iron – can make the club easier to hit.
Get the right flex for your swing speed. Choosing the wrong flex costs you distance. Choose extra or tour stiff if you have a very fast swing speed. Other options include stiff, regular or senior flexes.
