How would you hit a hybrid off the fairway?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Would it be like hitting an iron or a wood? Ball Placement? And any other factors that I need to get a good shot off the fairway.

Hit it like an iron.  Don't try to sweep it.

Like an iron. Pretty much the same ball placement as my 4 iron.

Set up for an iron, think of it as an iron, and then - don't try to kill it. Just let it flow - the clubhead and longer shaft will give you all the help you need - be aggressive, but not over aggressive.

I try to play it with a 'neutral' club shaft, not leaning forward or backwards. Then easy swing and the club does the rest....don't try to hit it too hard.

I just hit ball :p

 

Though i tend to think of the hybrid as more of a fairway wood, just because of the sole of the club. So i tend to hit with shallower angle than a long iron.

I make sure I hit it with more of a sweeping hit. I dont want to dig and take a divot like an iron. Just how I do it personally.

I hit mine like an iron, hit down on it and take a divot with the ball slightly ahead of centre in my stance. Even when I hit it off the tee I do the same thing.

I play it in the same spot as my 3 and 4 iron. The swing I do, and as I've heard from most instructors and seen, hits much more like and iron. Not a sweep, should take a small divot, just like a long iron.
