Many golfers consider their hybrid golf clubs as their pride and joy. And who wouldn't if it gives you exactly what you're looking for in a golf club – precision, control, accuracy and winning shots?
Probably the most crucial equipment in the sport of golf is the golf club. It has a club head and a shaft with a lance for gripping. A shaft is the long part of a club, usually made of steel or graphite and usually weighs around 45 to 150 grams. It varies in flexes – the stiffer the flex of a club is, the more it requires wrist strength and swinging power. A club head is the part of the club where ball contact should be made. Each type of club has a different club head. Most clubs only have one side of its head used for hitting except the Putters, which have two sides.
A hybrid golf club, of course, is a cross between an iron club and a fairway woods. Although hybrids clubs have the same convex face of a fairway woods, its head is more slender-looking than the bulkier fairway woods. Golf hybrids are also easier to handle than irons as long irons have very small club face especially those low-lofts.
They are usually made out of hard stainless steel, which greatly provides forgiveness.
The center of gravity in a golf hybrid club is shifted back, which really helps in creating momentum and makes hitting easier on the sweet spot, launching the ball in higher trajectory. And unlike long irons, a golf player can make shorter backswings with a hybrid golf club because of its light weight.
Also, golf hybrids happen to have the an ingenious Internal Weight Distribution or IWD that helps a golf player's alignment when taking a shot and make the best shots in even in off-center ball and club face contact. Sometimes called "rescue" clubs, hybrid golf clubs could easily replace those long irons and fairway woods in your golf bag.
The reason why most golfers have a hard time learning the sport is because they choose clubs that are too long or are not suited for them. To make the most out of this sport, a golfer must choose his clubs very meticulously and not be satisfied with the standard clubs that they sell on sporting goods stores. One must consider his body type and even stance before choosing his golf clubs. Remember that these clubs will either make you or break you as a golfer.
