Course conditions are basically what dictate the roll out, that and whether I hit the ball too high or not.

I really hate thinning my hybrids, I got really mad at them two weeks ago for not behaving. :mad:

 

Then of course I fixed my swing to make them work a bit better. :8)

I never swing more than 75-80% because it's too hard to be consistent. Too many moving parts moving too fast for a weekend warrior. Only time I swing really hard is to clear a tree and need carry or something like that. Then i might try a 160 yard 9 iron. I normally hit my 9 iron about 130-135 also.

Thanks for the verification, I figured that most better players swing at this relative level of effort.

 

In fact, I have been using a swingbyte exclusively to determine my relative effort on the range and the course. Most of the time I am at about 75% effort.

Although I'm not sure what my swing speed is, I have a good idea it's above 100 mph. I'm also confident that most would say I swing too hard. But to be honest, that's comfortable for me. I've tried slowin' it down a bit, and the accuracy was worse. That's just me, though, since I've seen what you're saying in other outlets as well.

I guess you need to do what works best for you.

It is for sure... Do you usually play the hybrid off the T as well?

My 19* hybrid is my 215-220 club when I hit it good with a high ball flight.  When I hit it hard and thin it... it can roll forever on hard pan.  That doesn't make it my 250 yard club.  ;)

 

I actually struggle hitting hybrids off the deck.  I would much rather have a 3-iron in my bag.  I need to hit my hybrid more like an iron. 

 

I tee mine up maybe 1/4" off the turf.
