How Many Hybrids Do You Carry?

93 posts in this topic

I'm curious to see how many hybrids everyone carries these days.  I'm "re-tooling" my arsenal.  Thinking of just eliminating the 3 & 4 irons completely, replacing with a 3 & 4 hybrid.  I basically will be carrying driver, 3W, 3 hybrid, 4 hybrid, 5-p/w, 2 wedges, 56 & 60.   Just curious of your thoughts.  Thanks.

I started with the 2H and added a 3H. Recently I started hitting the 3i pretty well so I put it back in and took out the 3H. If I need a higher softer shot I can choke the 2H and if I need something more boring I can hit the 3i. There is one course that I play that I absolutely carry the 3H because off the fairways is sugar sand waste areas and the 3H comes in handy. I never went past the 3 because I love my 4i and don't have any issues with it.

My sticks are in my signature and my wedges are 48-54-60.

Nice.  Thanks guys.  I guess I'm trying to figure out the "gaps" I might have by eliminating the 3 & 4 irons from my bag.  Seeing more of this out there as well it seems.  I've been blasting the new RBZ 3 wood, 3 & 4 hybrid probably longer than I would hit my 3 & 4 irons on a good day so I guess this makes sense.  Totally have to re-calibrate my yardage now which should be interesting.  Oh the buckets of balls.........

Right now I carry zero. I might put the 2-hybrid in the bag on league night though.

I have one a 20* hybrid.  I'm looking for a newer 19* hybrid with a stiff shaft.

I carry a 3wood and 5wood, a 19* 3 hybrid and a 23* 4 hubrid. I carry a 52* and 56* wedge. I feel like I have really consistant gaps between the woods hybrids and irons, so droping one does not make sense for me right now, plus I don't feel like a 60* wedge would help me save strokes,

I carry a 3 wood, 3 hybrid 19*, and then 3 iron.

I was carrying a 4 hybrid at 24* but I started hitting the long irons well so I took it out.

15.5* 3 wood and 20* hybrid (3/4 iron territory). still keep my 4 iron because i use it to hit runners and get out of trouble when i have a lot of ground to make up.

who wants to hit sideways into a fairway when you can try to phil your way out of it?

I had bad luck with hybrids the first time I tried them circa 2007. A couple of years later, I found Callaway and Adams models I could hit OK, but delayed buying them.

I carried a 15* 3W and an 18* 5W for a couple of years, and then dumped the 5W for a TM Raylor 19* trouble club. (5W tended to miss left, and was hard to stop).

I retooled this summer and have a RBZ 3W HL (17* - a 4W) and a 21* 7W. I also have an RBZ 4H 22*. I hit FWs just as well as I hit hybrids, so I still favor FWs because I need all the distance I can get.

I have flighted shafts on my irons, so I can get the 4i up decent as a driving iron on tighter holes... and 4i has lower trajectory in wind than hybrid.

18 degree and 21 degree hybrids. No 4 iron or hybrid. 4 wedges. To me (for the course i play at) an extra wedge makes more sense than a 4 iron:-D

Per my sig line, 2. For most golfers, certainly for most mid-handicap and higher players, hybrids are much easier to hit, fly higher, and land softer than the equivalent long iron. I used to carry (and strike well) a 2 iron. Now I don't even carry a 3 or 4.

I replaced my 2 iron with a hybrid about 5 years ago and it's still the only one in the bag.

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Sounds like we just have a different barometer for what "bad" is. This particular case isn't about "adapting" to the new site, the controls are largely the same. The problem is they blew everything up so people can see it on their phones which dilutes the quantity of information you get get to see on your PC. Also they removed useful features like the regions to again make more space for mobile users.

      Yes, it is extremely popular among Asians of every kind here because it's a rich man's sport in Asia. Many Asians (Korean, Japanese, and large growing Chinese/Taiwanese and many other Southeast Asians) come here and find that Golf is within reach of their "class" so they sign up their kids to play. I'd say that my wife's friend is in that category, and she also convinced us to play as well. So, here I am.
    • Putting Yips
      I completely changed my own putting stroke this year.... twice. Last year I had a terrible case of the yips and was two and three putting a lot of greens - some of the two putts were on putts that were 3-4 footers resulting from chip ons. I averaged 37.8 putts per round. My back hurts when I bend over practicing putting for any length of time. I tried to fix it, but gave up after a while, decided that I needed to hit more GIRs and get closer to the pin. My putting would always be mediocre. So at Xmas I bought a long putter .... cheap $60... no one wants them anymore. I tried side-saddle and practiced in my living room. I took it to the green yesterday and I didn't like it. I changed to the "shoulder-connected method" except with my right arm fully extended and right index finger along the shaft of the putter. I hold the putter gripped over the top like they would when anchoring it to the chest. Now I just rock my shoulders and arm as a unit. Having the right arm fully extended takes my right wrist completely out of the equation and that is what was causing my putting problem. Now, neither my forearm nor the putter head is touching my body. I am making a legal stroke at the ball.  After about 15 minutes work, I was lag putting to within gimme range of the holes on the practice green. When I'd miss the mark, the four footer would still drop. Now this is with a completely new stroke, and not an anchored stroke either. I'm standing fairly upright too so it's easy on my back and I can practice for about 30 minutes every time I go to the range without dreading it. While this might not cure my scoring woes this year, if I look at last years Game Golf analysis, I could save about 3 strokes a round by going from 37.8 putts per round to 34.8.

      Facebook updates all the time for performance reasons. Read their release notes.  But never judge good usability by Facebook as they are one of the absolute worst sites out there.   Honestly?  There isn't.  Some people are still stuck in old web menus but usability has only risen in the last decade.  Are there bad sites?  Sure.  But most sites are far and away better they anytime in the past.  You just have to adapt to them.  This isn't a knock on you its how society works.  I am a user experience designer and study this a lot.   Once a person gets used to changes, going back to the old version would be impossible     
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge (February 2016)
      Got to the range to drop off clubs for my daughters high school coed golf team tryouts. I sure hope she can get on the team. She's about a 15HC from the men's tees, it's going to be tough. Cross fingers and Practiced my downswing transition on grass and hit much better shots on the grass range after the first few shots. I hit too thin on the course, but was able to get some serious height on the grass range. Going to practice some more on the grass range and use golf club delivery to my daughter as an excuse to spend the extra money. Also, I feel like I can really go after the ball on grass because a fat shot is not as penal on the body as on a mat.
