Hybrid Golf Clubs Make Golf Easy



By: Zachary Skinner -

Hybrid golf clubs, called hybrid woods or hybrid irons, are making the game of golf a lot easier for some players. This simply means it looks something like an iron and something like a wood ? at the same time. Hybrid clubs offer you a lot more options on the golf course, and help you with a better score at the end of the great day on the links. If you are looking to improve your golf game, hybrid clubs might just do the trick. A lot of the tour players are using hybrid clubs while the major golf magazines and equipment gurus recommend hybrid clubs for the amateur golfer.

Golfers of all levels of ability are benefitting from the ease of use of the hybrid golf club. Most hybrids don't use exotic materials, which mean that prices are affordable for most golfers. Differences between the wooden heads of the hybrids tend to be smaller while the irons, in exact contrast, tend to be thicker and stronger. Custom hybrid clubs are growing in popularity because they are designed to be easier to hit for weekend golfers. Perhaps it bears repeating that hybrid clubs are designed to replace long irons that are difficult for most golfers to hit solidly on a consistent basis. In fact, even some professional golfers now use hybrid golf clubs to further advance their performance, and golf supplies manufacturers now produce special hybrid clubs for these pros.

For women and older men hybrid clubs have become a savior for their golf game. Imagine how much your golf game would improve if you could hit accurate long irons with the ability to execute high soaring shots that landed softly on the green what would that be worth to you. The idea behind hybrids is to keep the game of golf as easy as possible for beginner and intermediate players.

The bigger clubhead and larger sole of a hybrid club makes it easier to swing through the sand without catching it heavy. The long narrow face and a wide sole of hybrid clubs utilizes a low center of gravity cog, which helps players with slower swing speeds launch the ball with little effort, making a hybrid club similar to playing a wood in that it lends itself to the sweeping style swing rather than picking the ball off the turf with greater effort and a traditional iron. Hybrids allow for a shorter back swing while launching the same distance you are use to experiencing with a wood.
