So I got out to the course this weekend and hit the hybrid a few times.

1st shot:
9th hole, Par 5, second shot, sliced it but it landed in a good spot, not a great start

2nd shot:
13th hole, par 4, going for the green, cut across it and made a mess.

3rd shot:
17th hole, par 3, 196 yards, nice shoot and lands 5 feet to the left of the green pin high, chip and putt for par.

4th shot:
18th hole, par 4, second shot about 189, another nice shot but the high wind made it drift a hair right off the green but again pin high, chip and putt for par.

I guess I will keep it in the bag for a while.

I have a 2 Hybrid and I am off and on with that thing. I just have to remember to take a nice and easy swing with it and it makes the ball fly, anything other than a nice and easy swing though and the ball goes nowhere. Anyhow like I said I am off and on with mine, I would rather just use an iron.

Ditto, I have tried quite a few but have a love/hate relationship with them. I keep going back to my V-steel 5 wood. I know they say that we should swing the hybrids like irons but it's been difficult for me to be consistent throughout the season with the hybrids.

I was never very good with using fairway woods from the fairway, sad as it is. That made me practice my irons until I could hit them solidly. In Janruary I purchased new irons. Not the smartest thing I've done. With my old set I had a 2i that I could hit well. I was pretty consistant with my long irons.

To make up for the fact that the new set didn't offer a 2i I started looking at the Hybrids. I found a Cobra Baffler DWS 2/R on Ebay for a steal! I took it to the range and after 5 swings I was hooked. I get the distance I expect, ball flight to envy, and forgiveness I didn't expect. I immediately started looking at replacing the 3i that came with the new set. This weekend I took my "new" (to me that is) Cobra Baffler DWS 3/R out to the course. I got the chance to use it once (used the 2 more often). I was faced with 190yrd 2nd shot on a long Par 4 to an elevated green. The ball landed soft on the green within 3 feet!

The only time I have trouble with the Hybrids is when I swing it like a wood, or the ground is very wet and soft. The latter just smooshes the ball into the ground before it takes off.

Got my first round in yesterday with my new 4 hybrid.

The club performed wonderfully time and time again. It's as easy to hit as my 8 iron (probably flies as high) and covers a lot of ground.

Hardpan lies....no problem.

Fairway bunkers....it shines.

It is a great trouble club.

Even though it is the square type, I've found that it will hit a draw when I do my part. I haven't tried to cut it....don't really have too due to it's already high ball flight and soft landing.

    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
    • Jesus, it’s not just white people who are offended. Just because he isn’t doesn’t mean many more native Americans are not. This line of logic is just idiotic. 
    • I talked to my buddy, 100% Navajo, about this thread.  His response was to shake his head, laugh and say “Leave it to the arrogant white man to tell us what we should be offended by…” Just thought I’d share.  I’m sure the arrogant white men here will continue to tell him he’s wrong though…  😂
