I started golfing only this past spring. I bought a used set of Adams Idea a3 irons that came with a 3h, 4h, and 5h. I thought that buying them would temporarily spare me (and my budget) from having to buy a fairway club, but I realize now that that's my first item on the 2012 agenda. Anyway, I'd been relying on these hybrids for my long smacks, and I think I've hit them square about twice. They're longer than the regular irons in the set, and that changes my swing because I can't hit down on them. I've thought about swinging them like a driver, but I can't even make solid contact most of the time. Obviously, I need to practice more (and better). But going forward, how should I approach hitting my hybrids? Any tips in general?
Thanks for any help.
