Never underestimate an old man with a golf club poster
Hybrids are a cross between a wood and an iron, giving these clubs the wood’s long distance and higher launch, with the iron’s familiar swing. The club head of a hybrid has a wood-inspired, slightly convex face, and is typically hollow like modern metal woods to allow for high impulse on impact and faster swing speeds. Never underestimate an old man with a golf club poster The head is usually smaller than true woods, however, not extending as far back from the face, and the lie and shaft length are similar to an iron giving similar swing mechanics. These clubs generally replace low-numbered irons in a standard set (between 2 and 5, most commonly 3–4), which are typically the hardest clubs in a player’s bag to hit well. By doing so they also generally make higher-lofted woods redundant as well. However, some manufacturers produce “iron replacement” sets that use hybrid designs to replace an entire set of traditional irons, from 3 to pitching wedge. Sets designed for less muscular players commonly feature a combination of high-lofted woods (up to 7-wood) and hybrids to replace the 5, 6 and 7-irons, allowing these players to achieve greater carry distances with slower swings.
