Golf club hybrids offer an ideal fusion of the power of fairway woods with the loft and precision on an iron. Innovations like a bigger clubface provide more surface area to make solid contact with the ball, offering more forgiveness than an iron. In addition, the loft of hybrids matches that of irons making them ideal for replacing long irons which are generally harder to hit. Take your game to the next level with new or pre-owned hybrids by TaylorMade, Callaway, Cobra, and Cleveland.
Hybrids are clubs that combine features of both woods and irons, giving them many of the benefits of both.
Because of their versatile design, hybrids offer two essential elements. One, they can provide precision like an iron. Second, they can give you more distance than an iron, in many ways rivaling that of fairway woods. An example is the Callaway Golf Mavrik Max Hybrid offering both distance and accuracy.
Hybrids are built with a more prominent clubface like a fairway wood. This offers more surface area in which to strike the ball during a swing.
Hybrids are designed with a similar length, loft and weight of an iron while offering a head and face similar to that of a fairway wood, making the club easier to hit like a fairway wood while offering the loft and control of an iron.
Hybrids were designed to be substituted for irons in terms of loft. Therefore, emulate the same swinging motion you would with an iron versus a wood.
When you are on the fairway approaching the green, the distance is not appropriate for a wedge or iron. The power and accuracy of a hybrid are ideal here. Hybrids are also helpful for punching out of tight lies.
While the costs vary for different hybrids, many name-brand versions fall between $100 to $300. An example is the Callaway Golf Apex Pro 21 Hybrid which is priced in the high 200s.
