Pros: Solid shots with no effort.

Cons: The white top makes it very obvious, but now that there's lots of use in it it has lost a lot of the lighthouse glint.

This club along with the partner 4H are the best purchases I have ever made. Although, I did buy both of mine at Dick's on sale for the same price last year. The lefty club selection at my local Golfsmith seems to focus on the latest clubs.

These hybrids have replaced both of my fairway woods. They have a much more compact head, and elicit much more confidence in my shots.

However, since I generally hit off the standard tees, I rarely need the 240 to 250 yards possible from a 3 fairway wood. That is, possible if I manage to hit that fairway wood well.

These clubs are heavier and more compact, and I feel like I do not need to swing hard to get the desired distance. This in turn, makes for better and more consistent shots.

Off center hits are not punished as much. If I hit them off center by even 1/2", the ball still goes in the general direction I want and at least 75% the distance of a good shot.

Great club, looking for the 5H to complement these two and possibly replace my other long irons with them.

Pros: Distance stayed around the same - but a higher trajectory ball flight with less roll makes long shots to the green much less menacing

Cons: Some golfers may not appreciate the club at address

Picked one up this weekend for a meager $90 and played two rounds with it.

 

First Impressions

Address: I love the white crown and black face.  I almost feel like I can see it in my peripheral in my downswing which gives me the (possibly false) confidence that I will strike the ball well (golf is a mental game, right?). The regular flex shaft certainly has flex but feels firm.  This club inspires confidence at address and resembles the driver identically expect for of course the size.  

 

The clubhead cover is clean sturdy and compact.  No BS frills just a clean headcover.  It is very thick and cushioned.

 

Trackman

I compared this TM-SF to my Jesse Ortiz 19* hybrid.  The TM's ball flight was higher and about the same distance (maybe +3 yards or so).  I felt like my baby fade was reduced with the TM which is neither good nor bad, just something I need to adjust to.  My swing speed was about the same but felt much easier with the TM.  

 

A mishit between the hosel and sweet spot resulted in a slight pull that would be characterized as a mishit by most standards but would not translate terribly on the course, being only 10-15 yrds left of target.  The club feedback certainly let me know that I didn't hit the ball well, but the flight of the ball was very forgiving.  I'd wager that if one were to have watched the shot on the course they wouldn't have even noticed that it was a mishit.

 

On the Course

This club is a nice 190-210 distance for me (I know, you all hit your 18*s like 230, bug off).  It proved itself nicely both off of a clean fairway and out of the tangly brush.  I had too many beers and accidentally splashed a little pee on it but after a towel down it shined up nicely.

 

It is worth noting that the TM's higher trajectory makes for stopping the ball on the green much easier, compared to my old Jesse Ortiz that might have run off because of a lower trajectory entrance to the green with the same overall distance.

 

The sound of impact is awe-inspiring and makes a long walk to the green (hopefully) that much more enjoyable.

 

The Moment The Old Club Was Gone

The moment I knew it was the club for me was after a drive faded off right a little too much and ran from fairway up onto a hill on the right side of the fairway.  It was nearly buried in the rough stuff but teed up off the ground.  With 175 yards to the middle of the green (back flag) and a tree in my way, I lined up open stanced and tried to work the TM for a strong fade around the tree.  

 

Normally this is a tough shot for a golfer like myself.  I gave it a slow backswing and focused on working my swing outside-in to get a turn around the tree.  The TM responded nicely and despite what seems like a large hybrid head, it cut right through the rough stuff like a knife.  I mean this stuff is tangly and rough, you gotta understand.

 

Kept the hands strong and the TM rewarded me with a 180yd fade around the tree and to the back of the green for a two-putt par save.  I must note again the stopping power of this hybrid on greens.

 

Hope that you've enjoyed reading and if you're thinking about getting one, do it.  Best $90 I ever spent at Golfsmith.
