Why You Should Have a Hybrid

By Marc Jenkins

Just as life itself, golf is a game where any player needs a strong sense of flexibility in order to truly succeed at it. There are many ways that a golfer can gain that flexibility when on the course: clothing, location of golf course and even technique. However, the most important area of the game where golfers need flexibility is in the equipment they use. Every golfer's most essential piece of equipment is the club, and knowing that is why many golfers are so particular about which clubs they place in their golf bag. According to several retailers and pro shops, the number of players carrying around a hybrid golf club has tripled because it provides them with added flexibility.

Hybrid Golf Clubs Provide Flexibility

The value of hybrid clubs is immediately apparent to any golfer who uses them. Hybrid clubs can be used in almost any situation instead of constantly having to switch clubs due to the shot situation. That is an important factor in club selection, because once a golfer becomes very comfortable with a particular club he feels that he can do anything with it. When a golfer becomes comfortable with a hybrid club, he can then, for example, use it for a long fairway shot instead of a fairway wood, or use it in his short game rather than an iron to set up a manageable putt. The added flexibility that hybrid clubs offer is why they have come to be known in some golfing circles as utility clubs. Whether you choose to call them utility clubs or hybrids, they will bring new flexibility to your game.

Hybrid Golf Clubs are Extremely Cost Efficient

In terms of their cost, hybrid golf clubs are similar to any other quality club, that is, the better the club, the more it will cost. The typical high-quality hybrid club will probably cost between $150 and $300. While this might strain your budget, in the grand scheme of things remember that the flexibility that hybrids offer can eliminate the need to have several irons and will therefore substantially lower your overall equipment costs. Depending on the kind of iron set you would have purchased, the hybrid could save you anywhere from $400 to $700.

Hybrid Golf Clubs are Effective

The quality construction of hybrid golf clubs is the main reason why players throughout the world are consistently improving their game by using hybrid clubs. Due to the fact that the center of gravity is further back in hybrid clubs, it allows the ball to fly further and more accurately once the contact occurs. Ideal ball flight, trajectory and overall effectiveness can be be achieved by using a hybrid club.
