For me it depends on the depth of the rough. But in general my concern is a poorly struck iron out of the rough will be a disaster for me whereas a hybrid will still move the ball even if just a ground burner.
Love me some fairway woods. I’m not a high swing speed guy, but I’m not slow either. I play 3, 5, and 7 woods, then 4h. Higher launch, higher spin gives me a softer landing. Took out a 52* wedge and changed around to a 48, 54, and 60 mph edge setup to accommodate more clubs at the long end. I like it.
