Hybrid Golf Irons
Hybrid golf irons are a cross bread between fairway woods and irons offering you the best of both worlds. Hybrid golf irons started as Rescue clubs to get the ball out of a thick rough and fairway bunkers. First golfers were replacing their hard-to-hit long irons with hybrid clubs. Hybrid clubs became so popular that golfers are replacing their entire iron set by hybrids. What are the benefits of hybrid golf irons? 1) Robot tests are showing that a #7 hybrid club gives you same distance as a traditional #7 iron if the face is hit in the center. 2) A hybrid club features a hollow core design like a metal wood with perimeter weighting. Perimeter weight design increases forgiveness and improves accuracy at off-center hits. A hybrid club gives you more distance at off-center shots than an iron. The hybrid iron really has advantages on off-center hits, because it is more forgiving and offers more distance than a standard iron. 3) The hollow design and the larger volume of a hybrid clubs move the Center of Gravity lower and more away to the rear than a traditional iron. A lower CG location moves mass below the ball’s equator and promote higher launching shots for more distance. 4) Hybrids golf irons offer benefits also over mid and short irons. The wider and slightly curved face of hybrid clubs promotes a distance enhancing draw bias for right hand golfers. Many recreational golfers tend to hit long irons in scooping motions. This tendency causes the narrow sole of an iron to dig into the turf. A hybrid golf iron with its wider sole is gliding along the turf without the risk to digging. 5) Hybrid golf irons reduce fear at fairway bunker shots. If you use a sand wedge just to the ball out of a bunker, will cost you precious distance and you make loose a chance to hit the green. A hybrid will be less intimidating than hitting a full iron shot from the sand.
