I have the same club and the same problem.  It is difficult to look at the way it is made and not think of it as a wood instead of an iron.  No matter what the length of the cut, hit down on it.  Took me almost an entire summer to get that through my skill into the brain, even took it out of the bag.  When I made the decision to hit it the way hybrids are made to be hit, it became a plus for my game.
Have to remember to hit down on the hybrids, like an iron.
Actually 10 days ago (last time I played). Shot 101 on Saturday and 104 on Sunday. Couldn't get tee in ground so I had a few "pop ups" which added at least one shot each time if it can be figured that simply. Probably more like 2-3 based upon club selection and how many shots it took to get "on". Played in SW Ohio. We are scheduled to open at the course I work at on March 1... Negative wind chill of 25 tonight and we have had 6-10 inches of snow since three days ago....
Since my first reply, the issue of using illegal clubs in scrambles has come up.  This summer, I saw a trend in scrambles that upsets me and goes in the same vein as using illegal clubs in scrambles.  Since scrambles are normally money raising events, I am seeing those running the events selling tickets for "Mulligans".  Those who buy the most "Mulligan Tickets" normally win the scramble.  Where does it end?  Whether it is an illegal club or a foursome has twenty extra...
No!  I want my score compared to others using regulation equipment.  In addition, I would call out anyone I would be playing against who would be playing an illegal club.
I have changed from a slice to draw. First, I switched to the SLDR 460 off the Tee but that is only part of it since most of my shots are draws. I have worked on hitting to "right field". I am a righty. I also have moved the "V" formed by the thumb and index finger on my right hand grip so it follows a line up my right arm to my right shoulder. To give credit where credit is due, listening and watching Hank Haney has been a major factor.

I have had the SLDR 460 for two weeks.  Since I began using it, I have had more birdies than in the previous weeks that make up this golf season.  I credit that to the additional distance off the tee that puts me closer to the green.  I am sure that is due partially to all the reasons TM tells us but since I no longer slice the drive, the yardage I lost from the ball rolling perpendicular to the fairway is now down the fairway.  I admit the first time I looked down at the...
Sixty-eight years old and playing my second season of golf. Today, I made my first hole-in-one. 159 yards from Tee, over a pond with short Fairway. Hit an orange Bridgestone 6 with Adams 6 Hybrid. The ball hit short of the cup and went in on one bounce. Came close last year on same hole but stopped on the left lip of the cup. Had a bad case of the butterflies as I approached the Green with the ball nowhere in sight.
A few weeks ago, I suggested a 3W would be more valuable if the loft was greater and I got several responses ranging from agreement to the idea that it was meant to be hit from a tee and not from the deck.  I set about finding one that had a greater loft or one that could be adjusted.  One reply asked if a 3W could be demoed and the answer is yes.  One fitter also suggested that it was meant to be hit from a tee but that just didn't seem right although I know it is done...
