Hi All,

I have a hybrid problem..... I hook the hell out of them!! I don't have this problem with any other club, just hybrids and I've tried them all. My question is... Does anyone else have this problem and have you found a cure?

Thanks, Duffy

Not saying you do this....but..

When people grab a hybrid they automatically think they need to swing it like a wood because of it's larger head and graphite shaft.

Swing it like an iron with a steeper swing than a wood, rather than flat-ish

Agree.  Best piece of hybrid advice I ever got was "swing it just like a 5 iron".    Since then it's become a great go-to club.

what you should also look out for is that a lot of "regular" hybrids have closed clubfaces and will promote a draw.  I'd suggest going to more of a "player" hybrid and see how that works out for you.

Thanks gang, I do swing it a little flatish and I haven't tried a TP version of a hybrid (why I didn't think of that is a mystery). Will give these gems of wisdom a try. Thanks again, Duffy

Agreed!  I see a lot of players playing a hybrid like a driver, usually getting the ball way too up in their stance.   Try playing the ball a little more middle.... ( if thats what youre doing)

This along with the advice of hit like a 5i did the trick.  I was getting really frustrated and now use it for multiple shots.  It floored me when I hit down on it like a 5i.  It was like Jesus was there with me.

If youre hooking it, youre hitting it with a closed clubface, so try playing it farther back in your stance.  Like the others have said, play it more like its a mid-iron instead of a fairway wood.

I'm having fat issues with my New 3 Hybrid too, the shaft is about 1.5 inch shorter than my 3Wood. So it's still quite long.

That being said, still try to hit it like a 5i?

i have this same issue with hybrids, its more of the way the hybrid setups, usually because most hybrids have offsets making it seem as though the clubface is already closed. so you see a hook before it happens. hence i like the adjustable premium hybrids like 910H titleist or the nike VR pro, jsut set them up for a +1.5* open face and smack away... it's generally better to miss to the right than to the left :)

Thats exactly how I played my hybrids. Just like a driver with a flatter swing. Once I made contact it would always hook left. Friend noticed what I was doing and told me to just play them like an iron and everything changed.  They get up, straight and long just like they were meant to be. No I have a lot of confidence in them. Try playing just like irons.

    • I read this just now. (It may have been posted before, and since apparently Reddit embeds are full-size, it's at the bottom). Here's what happened to me this morning. At about 10:30pm last night, I went to watch the second part of the Tiger documentary. My wife fell asleep pretty quickly and my kid watched the whole thing with me. I turned it off and fell asleep pretty quickly, around 12:07am. My recovery was 75% and my HRV around 85 the next morning, but my "sleep" time was 11:03 or something. When I adjusted that to 12:07, my recovery dropped to 51% and my HRV to 57 or something. HRV is supposed to be calculated in the last 5 minutes or something of your deep sleep, so I'm not sure why adjusting the start time - while still doing the same "resting" as I was doing, by just lying in bed - should have any effect on my HRV or my recovery. If my HRV is reported as a different number I get why the recovery would change, but why did the HRV change when I left the wakeup time as 6:59am?    
    • I had a lesson yesterday, 01-20-21. Worked on deep shoulder turn and initial move in downswing to shallow club shaft. Also feeling of holding back to target as long as possible to create room to come through with club.  We also spoke about my 2021 season goals also as outlined on the forum. We added getting driver average to 250 yards.  For my future reference, one of my A4 stills showing progress on deeper shoulder turn as of 01-20-21 Drills and feels to continue: Wall touch at A4 Bump & down pressure move  Hold back to target during downswing
    • All things being equal, I'd want to be the passenger, so that's my answer.  However, some people got no clue what they are doing driving a cart. They cause pace of play issues, park the cart in funny spots, try to sit in the cart every moment they aren't actually hitting their ball and generally drive me insane. I can think of a couple of guys where I insist on driving.
    • Day 99: Worked on my priority piece and soft trail arm work for about 40 minutes until my fingers were too cold.
