Top 5 Golf Hybrids For 2021
The golf club in the hybrid, as the name suggests, is a mix of both fairway wood and the iron. Commercial manufacturing of these hybrid variant has been in the market for over ten years. But the market has now lapped it up, with almost all manufacturers adding them to their list. With the hybrids adding the pros of both and conveniently dropping the cons, it is the best choice for the new aspirants and the professionals.
The main reason for this shift to the hybrid variant (it is not just you, but international players as well use them) can be associated to the ease that it provides. Needless to say, it decreases the overall weight you will have to lunge forward as it is not purely iron. This enables you to hit with more consistency and less effort. The other benefits you can enjoy are:
- With more delicate finishing and rounded edges, the resistance you feel from the club is reduced.
- Another notable benefit that you can enjoy is the ease of making the ball airborne. This is because the hybrid variant provides an opportunity to shift the center of gravity in the club.
- These have shorter shafts as compared to the iron ones. Hence, they are more controllable, and you have greater ease around them. Shorter also means you are cutting down the overall weight that goes into it.
- With a wide sole and flat face, the hybrid is a convenient way for the beginners.
Hence the long iron clubs (especially three and four), which are the most tedious ones, are generally replaced by the hybrid variant. If you get the feeling of it, you can further replace the other troublesome ones.
