I was messing around with this during last week on a practice green and I began to like the feel of it. I took it out to the course this weekend with great success! The ball comes off with a much more true roll with a hybrid than a iron, IMO. Just a nice short putting stroke feeds the ball right where you aim. For chips for 20 feet or more, I DO RECCOMMEND.

I've used a 3 wood around the green long before Tiger made it fashionable and I like the hybrid even better. The only challenge for me was that the ball tends to come off hotter than either a putter or an iron and it took some getting used to. I still prefer an iron for most of my chipping, but in sticky rough, or when the ball is backed up against the collar, it works pretty well......

Yes it is a little tricky. But once i found the right rythm for the stroke it worked quite nicley. A shot I had to take with the ball up agaist a collar was exactly the situation that lead me to experiment with the hybrid around the green.

Had exactly the same problem last time i played and got up and down for par. my ball was up against some thick collar and i couldn't make a putting stroke.

I may as well try it, because right now I'm beginning to really dislike my hybrid and it's about to be removed from the bag. If I can find some use for it then maybe I'll keep it around a little longer.

Can't figure it out, but I loved my hybrid (19 deg) when I first bought it (Fall 07) but now I'm really struggling with it.

The hybrid would go right though that. Or you can play a skull shot where you clip the eqautor of the ball with the leading edge of the club. The leading edge on my hybrid is pretty strait so i can play that one.

I think a low lofted hybrid is an excellent choice for chipping around the green. While it does take some practice to get used to, what in golf doesn't?

I have had good luck chipping with a seven iron, as well. If the lie is good, I tend to reach for the seven iron. If the lie is in any way questionable, I have found the hybrid quite effective.

I chip with my hybrid at times too. Especially on those delicate downhill chips from the greenside fringe - really helps to get the ball rolling sooner and smoother than with a wedge (or a putter). Try not to get overzealous with the hybrid chipping idea though - pick the right situations that call for this kind of chip shot. It has come back to bite me at times.
