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 finally got a video of my Zip Navigator rolling through what passes for the rough at the Grandview Golf Course today. It might have been easier to get a video of it underwater with a snorkel given the conditions here lately! Anyway, I think it does OK in the rough though I can't imagine why I would want to run it there as a matter of course... It does bounce the clubs around in the thick stuff as you can probably hear. I'm pretty happy with it overall. It seems to have the most trouble in very wet, muddy grass if it's got any speed on. The wheels spin like a truck stuck in the mud. I've found it works best if I slow it down and let it crawl through the goop. I'm glad to be walking again.  
    • 😜I foresee 27 shanks in your next three rounds. 
    • Day 13 - back to the indoor practice putting mat.  Mainly used the white line side (has the smaller hole cutout in the ramp section) to focus on keeping the ball going straight - worked from 3' - 6' distances in 1' increments.  Goal was to make 8 in a row at which time I could move to the next distance back.  IF, which was more the case, I left the line and missed the cup more than twice I had to move back to the next shorter distance.  Really forced the focus to be on making sure the backswing and follow-thru were equidistant from the starting point, keeping the head steady and having enough swing to sink the ball and not blow through.  Tough exercise but rewarding when I could "hear" the ball fall.  
    • They still accepted lottery applications for 2021, so would guess they would do the same for 2022 and just reject everyone that they don't have a ticket for.  I would assume some people that are rolled over to 2022 may not be able to attend and open up a few tickets.
