A freak who likes fairway woods and irons more than Hybrids

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have yet to find a hybrid I like more then long irons or fairway woods.  I am Demo-ing the New Titilest 5 wood and I like it.  I can more easily hit it off the deck and get good distance.  I am so impressed with the Titilest fairway wood I am going to give their Hybrid a try.

 

Am I the only one?

I hate fairway woods, I can't hit them I just can't.  Maybe its cause of the course I play (not a lot of need for a fairway wood and very very long length grass on fairways makes it hard), but I am waiting around for the New Titleist Utility club to add to my bag.

You are not alone my friend. I also just don't get on with hybrids.

 

I replaced my old ping eye 2 persimmon 5 wood, with a cobra baffler hybrid, a few years ago and since then have changed 4 or 5 times.

 

I hated each hybrid slightly less than my previous one and bit the bullet earlier this year, purchasing myself a ping i20 5 wood.

 

Best decision I've made for ages, absolutely love it!

Try Mizuno's MP 4H long iron. you get a iron look with playability off a hybrid

I can double hook a hybrid so I carry a one iron instead of a hybrid. Everytime someone I know gets a new hybrid I have to try it out but unless someone builds a course that has a bunch of U shaped holes to the left I will have to keep hitting long irons.

Titleist has smaller fairway heads - that makes them more playable. The problem is that they are not always for the slower speed golfer.

 

Other OEMs have gone to mega fairway heads and bigger hybrids that are smaller than the typical fairway (let's say140cc verus 115cc), yet their hybrids still offer confidence -- and they offer shorter shaft lengths that lead to more consistency; and they are more playable out of more lies than the typical fairway.

 

For the above reasons, I've gone to one fairway (17-18.5) and 2 hybrids that are 20+ degrees. I play a 42.5 inch fairway, a 40.75 hybrid and a 40 inch hybrid.

 

And yes, Titleist hybrids are fine clubs - the 913 seem smaller than the 910 ... not as confidence inspiring IMHO.

You are not alone, my relationship with hybrids has been a rocky one. I just cannot ever seem to find one that I can consistently hit. The worse part is my misses with the hybrids tend to be way off line. I never miss that bad with long irons or fairway woods. I recently added a Titleist 913f 5-wood to my bag and I love it. So much easier to control than my hybrids. The only problem I have with it is I hit it a tad too far, but as far as problems go that's the best one to have.
