i ditched all of the hybrid's i messed around with in 2013..... had the nike vrs 3 and 4 hybrid's

when i first got them, wow, i could hit them really well, and was like damn, no need for my 3 n 4 iron lol.....

but then when i actually worked on hitting my 3 n 4 iron's...... i found i couldnt hit the hybrid's worth a dang lol....

so i ditched them and stuck with my irons.....

I carry 2, and for the life of me I have no reason why. First of all, I never need them for the courses I play. Secondly, I can't hit them any more. I used to when my swing was a lot worse, now they feel heavy and clunky.

Driver, 15* 3 wood, 18* 5 wood, 22* 4 hybrid, 5 iron.... , PW, GW, 56 and 60 wedges

The gaps between the longer clubs are between 10 and 15 yards, but I am a short hitter (3 wood at 200-210 yds), so this setup works very well for me.

I do like my fairway woods so that's why they are both there. In tough lies or deep rough, I won't try to muscle them and use the hybrid instead and willingly give up distance for a more predictable outcome: sometimes bogey is a good score and I shouldn't have been in that predicament in the first place...

Two Hybrids

Driver

3 wd

5 wd

22 Hy

25 Hy

1 inch shaft length between. Do not like the Fubiku Ax 70 in them ... very tip stiff and tight feeling.

Reshaft! Ugh.

I had a 20 year golf hiatus, previously I carried a Driver, 3W, 1i, 2i, 3i-Si.

I just picked up a set of Calloways:, Driver, 3W, 3H, 4H, 5i-PW, AW, GW & LW.

It will be another 10 years before I can hope to be playing weekly (or more?). The hybrids are just so easy to hit. I'm super stoked I don't feel any pressure to "re-learn" to hit a 3 iron, or a 4 iron for that matter.

I see why a very good golfer would choose the irons over the hybrids but why not take advantage of the technology?

Zero currently, but I plan on picking up a 3H at the end of this season and spending some time learning it over the winter. My bag currently has a 3W then 4 iron and it's a toss up between the 5W and a 3H. Right now it is a rare moment when I need to hit a 3 iron and can't simply hit the 3W with an easy swing to make it happen. That said, I find myself with a few shots out of the rough where either a 3H or 4H would be easier to hit, and probably carry farther than a 4 iron shot as well.

Two Hybrids

Callaway XR

22 Hy

1 inch shaft length between. Do not like the Fubiku Ax 70 in them ... smooth, high and easy on center contact, and give feedback when not -- stiff and tight feeling when you do not make center contact i.e. good feedback.

Reshaft! Ugh.

Again, it was the Indian, not the arrow.

I carry one.   I feel it replaces a 2 and 3 iron, and then my 4-iron is my lowest iron.   It's a 19 degree hybrid, which is generally a 3H.   I feel that choking down a little bit, and learning to hit it a little easier makes it a 3-iron replacement.   Taking a normal swing is more like a 2I.   I like having a 2I distance with something easier to hit in the bag.

12 hcp. I've never felt it was necessary to carry more than one hybrid for me. It does exactly what I need it to do, go high and long. That being said I know some older players like to carry 2 or 3 just to give that extra bit of forgiveness and get the results with a slower swing speed. I'm quite confident with my long irons so I carry a 21 degree hybrid and play 4-PW and have no gaps

Currently I have 1, a 18* 913Hd. However that is subject to change since I'm getting fitted for a set of irons this Friday and it may happen that the set I hit best has another one or two included. I don't expect that to be the case though, as I've never had any trouble getting a 4 iron or 5 iron in the air.

I have a 23* Nike Vapor Speed 4H. However I'm looking for something to bridge the gap between my 4H and my 3W but not sure whether I buy a 5W or another hybrid, for me it is a though decision as both have their advantages.

Not being and older player and carry a 7 handicap, I carry 4 hybrids.  They are so much easier to hit than long irons, not sure why more people don't go with them.

2H, 4H, 5H & 6H

I hit them great.  They go high, land soft and unless I take an awful swing they don't go far offline.

    • It's speculation that doesn't actually matter. GOAT is not the longest driver or we'd already be throwing Cameron Champ's or Jamie Sadlowski's names in the discussion. He hit it about 267 or so when he was 40-43. Tiger hits it about 297 at the age of 43 with a fused back. And I couldn't care less… if Tiger hit it 350 or 250, he won a major this year. 15 >> 18, 81 >>> 72. That's 90% of the GOAT discussion for me. Y'all can make up whatever reasons you want, but own them, and accept that you're speculating on some of them.
    • How far would golf's legends drive the ball using modern equipment? At the 2016 Ryder Cup, the 6-foot-5 Thomas Pieters belted a drive 324...   An interesting article on how players way back would have driven the ball with today's ball and equipment.  I didn't realize that Jack had driven the ball 341 yards in a longest drive competition when he was 18.  
    • Oy. I don't give a shit about two top ten finishes in a decade. Nor am I comparing Jack to Vijay Singh, a guy whose putting stroke has been AWOL since roughly 2011. He wasn't. That's easily refuted. As for straighter you're not comparing like to like - you don't know what the fairway widths were, how far the ball bounced, etc. But we do KNOW that Tiger was longer than Jack. Tiger at 43 with a fused back is longer than Jack was when Jack was 40, 41, 42, or 43. Tiger @ 43: 297.8 Jack @ 40: 269.0 Jack @ 41: 264.3 Jack @ 42: 264.6 Jack @ 43: 266.1 Tiger was almost 30 yards longer at 43 than Jack was at 40, 41, 42, or 43. Now, several posts in, you're changing that up to say that, given modern equipment or whatever, Jack would probably have been as long as Tiger. But that's not what you said. Uhhhhh… He didn't do that. Neither did I. No they aren't. Furthermore, if all Tiger had to do was hit the ball 266 yards, he could probably hit 80% of the fairways. Fairways that are likely narrower, etc. So you lost the distance one, and if you want to measure "accuracy" by "fairway hit percentage" I again will point out you're not comparing like to like. They aren't playing the same golf courses, the same fairways, or hitting it the same distances. Furthermore, and more importantly, I don't care about stats like this when determining who the GOAT is. If you do, that's cool, but what I care about is wins, dominance, scoring averages, that sort of thing. I don't care who had a better short game (Tiger by far), who was a better putter (tie?), who hit a better 7-iron (almost surely Tiger), or whatever. I care about Ws. So not only are you provably wrong on distance, possibly off-base on accuracy, but you're arguing about things that most people don't even care about. Nobody considers Calvin Peete in the GOAT discussion because of how accurate he was off the tee. Huh? No. 🤦‍♂️ Uhhh, according to Jack, it was 118 MPH. I call bullshit on that. Oy.

    • I’ve never been one to sit on my donkey for too long. The past four and half decades have pretty much been work for me , as so I know, for many others as well.  Developing my golf game will (not) dominate my new found free time. It will though give me a new avenue of pursuits that I hope will keep my mind expanding. Thanks for the input and reply. 
    • That sort of extrapolation is not possible.  You are talking that he would be hitting the golf ball further than the average long drive competitor. I am not buying it. He would be one of the longer hitters on tour. Jack is not the physical freak like Dustin Johnson. I would put him probably a top 10 in distance yearly if he was in his prime competing today.
