Hybrid Golf Clubs Information

By Darin McGilvra

Hybrid golf clubs, also known as utility clubs, are a combination of characteristics from irons and woods. The manufacturers attempt to take the best characteristics from both to make a versatile golf club.

Materials

Hybrid golf clubs are made with the same materials as regular golf clubs. It is the dimensions of the club that make it a hybrid.

Shaft Length

Hybrids have shorter shafts than that of a wood with a similar loft angle, which makes hybrids easier to control and more accurate.

Head Shape

A hybrid has a head that is larger and heavier than the head of an iron, but it is still smaller than a head of a wood.

Loft

Because hybrid golf clubs have a lower center of gravity, the ball is easier to get in the air, so hybrids have more loft than irons with a similar angle on the club head.

Versatility

Because hybrids combine characteristics of clubs designed for one purpose, they can be used in multiple situations.
