The Benefits of Utility Hybird Clubs

The Benefits of Utility Hybird Clubs

One of the clubs that every amateur golfer should have in his bag is a utility metal wood. These are also called hybrid clubs; they are a combination between an iron and a metal fairway wood. They are small heads with an extremely low profile; you can see that the golf ball goes well over the top of the club.

Benefits of a hybrid Club

That means that when you put the golf ball down on the ground it looks easy to hit. Now this club I have in my hand is a 22-degree Kasco K2K fairway metal, and it is unbelievably easy to hit. You can hit this thing out of any lie. Now other companies make similar clubs, but this club right here is an absolute lifesaver because it is so easy to hit.

What is a Set of the Future?

With Kasco we do a set of the future, which goes up to only a 5-iron - no 4-iron, no 3-iron, no 2-iron, we go to these fairway metals instead. So I will hit one shot for you just as a demonstration. What you can even do is just step on the ball, plug it into the ground, and when you hit the golf shot it will come right out of the plugged lie. It is unbelievable the types of shots you can hit with these new types of golf clubs. I suggest you take a look at them.

Learn the Proper Golf Takeaway Position The takeaway is probably the most important part of the swing so use this drill to make sure you have this first move of the swing down right
The Best Golf Swing Plane for Consistent Impact The one plane swing is the way to go for consistent impacts because the clubface naturally closes on the downswing and does not require hand manipulation to square the face.
The Perfect Finish for a One Plane Downswing Since we are swinging around the body in the one plane swing the club should travel on an arc and not down the target line, thus the right arm gets extended and the left arm bends on the follow through.
