Hybrid vs. wood distances?

10 posts in this topic

I am hitting my driver well,but on par 5 holes I need a long club off the fairway. I can NOT hit my 3 or 5 wood so I always use my 4 iron. I just picked up an Adams 17* hybrid 3 iron, what can I expect for distance? Will the Hybrid 3 iron be close to a 3 or 5 wood as far as distance?

I suppose it all depends on lofts and lengths of shaft but I'm going to say there's not way your are going to get even a 5 Wood distance out of a 3h. I believe a 2h is generally compared to a 7 Wood.

I thought that 2i = 5w, and since 2i = 2h the transitive property of golf clubs gives us: 2h = 5w

I couldn't hit my 3 or 5 fw either so I built a 2 hybrid in 15* with a Grafaloy Red . Its not as far as a 3 wd , but its accurate , easier to hit , and I'm usually a wedge away on par 5's.

Never hit a 7wd but I just got back from playing a round and love the Hybrid.The hybrid is shorter than my 3 or 5 wood but it is ACCURATE and straight. The way I hit FW's it is very beneficial for me to hit the hybrid even if its a few yards short it a lott better than a woods shot or topping the ball.

I agree. There is no way that a 3H will go what a 5 wood does. I have a Callaway 3H X with steel shaft (I really didn't like it very much and don't use it) and my Fli Hi 3. I can carry both about 190-195 and I can carry my 5 w about 210-220.

Since, with most companies, a 3 hybrid is to replace a 3 iron, 4 hybrid to replace the 4 iron, etc, the 3H should never go as far as a 3 or 5 wood. BUT, I too can't hit my 3 wood at all. Most 3 woods are 15 - 15.5 degrees and I did see the Cobra 1 hybrid at 16 degrees. I love my Cobra 3 and 4 Hs. Best investment I've made in golf. So, hopefully their 1H can replace my 3 wood, even though not as long by a few yards?

What worked well for me was taking my Taylormade Burner 3 wood and having it cut 1 1/2 inches. The inch & half brought it to about the length of a hybrid, but the head mass was still that of a full 3 wood that still produced excellant distance. The big advantage was that since the swing-arc is now shorter, the club is a snap to control and I even find myself using it more in longer grass that I used to before.

    • 1 Iron Golf Clubs
      So...finally broke 90 the other day....would have been better but for cored and sanded greens. Never struck the ball so well. Have been trialing the "Bobby Clampett" Impact Zone training, and focusing on a point forward of the ball...working a treat so far and my irons are way more solid. Time will tell whether it is a flash in the pan or a good move, but the range session are very encouraging. Played since xmas at all?
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Notice this comment ;)  Yea but he's been doing that since he's been in office. At least he hasn't wavered away from his agenda for how ever long he's been in office. He's not going to pass it. He's going to try.  Trump doesn't have an agenda except to his own ego. He doesn't care about America. He doesn't care about the American people. He's uses to screwing as many people over as possible. Heck, why not add Washington to the list.  For me I think Trump just sat back and thought, "you know what I can win the presidency." Then he's going about doing it. It's all about vanity nothing else.   
    • How Do You Decide Where to Play Golf
      This is a more difficult question for me to answer than it once was, so I selected "Other".   If I play locally, then I only have a couple of choices.  But this year I rejoined the Men's Club at my old home course, so that has now become my current home course even though it's a 2½ hour drive (about 150 miles).  I also play several other courses just as I feel like it, no one course by price because I can get varying deals at 30 or 40 Colorado courses with my Avid Golfer Passport.   A lot depends on how far I feel like driving, it may depend on when my brother drives down from Idaho to play for a few days, and it just depends on what I feel like.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Isn't Bernie doing the same thing?  He's leading a witch hunt against big business and the wealthy.  Do you really believe he's going to pass a 90% income tax on the wealthy, outlaw guns, provide better free healthcare, increase the minimum wage to $15+ country wide and provide free college to everyone? They are both snake oil sales people appealing to the lowest common denominators of their parties.  Bernie may be more sincere about his beliefs, but that could just mean he's crazier too.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      But that stat goes directly to Tiger's lack of longevity (to this point in time).  If he hadn't had the issues that he's had, he wouldn't have missed all of those recent starts.  I don't see how you can diss Jack for being competitive over a longer period, and then still making many starts (which attracted more money to the events just by his presence) after his competitive career was past.  I don't know what the numbers work out to age for age to the point when Tiger was no longer starting in Majors, but that has to be a more telling number.
