I'm a right to left player, but my goodness to I hook the daylights outta that hybrid I have...25 yards of "draw" sometimes.

I don't pull hook it mind you...I simply start it out over the pretty homes on the right side of the hole and hope it comes back!!

I have a proper shaft....though I did buy the thing out of the bargain barrell...are the Taylor Made Rescue Mid's too offset for folks that already have a right to left ball flight?

Any other have the same problem and find a more appropriate club?

I used to have the same problem. Most hybrids are offset and people like us tend to over-draw the ball. I recently got the Adams Pro Series hybrids, which have no offset and they are 10 times better than other hybrids I have hit. The Taylor Made TP versions also have no offset and the Titleist might. Give those a try and see if they work for you.

I had the same issue with my Rescue Mid as it was a hook machine. I switched to the Cleveland Halo and that seemed to work out much better (plus right now you can get them cheap).

I can't play a hybrid to save my life. I kept one in my bag for putting out of the rough, but I favor my 5 wood to that anyway so I gave it to my Dad who likes it a lot better and seems to know how to use it.

I also have a lot of trouble hooking a ball at all...even when I am trying to.

I play right to left flight on my ball. I find that if make sure not to over swing and play the ball in the center of my stance I don't have that problem

As I have got better at golf I have started to hit the ball further and more accurately. In my irons that means a 20 yard slice has turned into a 5 yard draw. Which is fine, but in my hybrids a 10 yard fade has turned into a 10 yard draw and my mishits are going 30 yards left. However as long as you know how much you slice/hook/fade/draw the ball consistently you should be ok.

You just need to play the ball back in your setup to stop getting around so much. play it as a Iron not a wood.

For many people, that will simply lead to more hooks. Further back means you're coming from the inside even more.

Some hybrids are heel-weighted or slightly closed or just a little offset (offset matters very little in this equation). Some aren't. If the hybrid is the only club you hook with, get a different hybrid.

That's a true statement, but most don't have the swing your talking about, they think they do and watching many golfers as you have also you see the casting the club out from the top or swinging around their body thinking they have a good swing,even bring the club straight back and straight thru with their arms only. Why he's hitting a twenty five yard hook I don't know? All we do is try helping with some tips for someone who we will never see hit the ball on a course.

I see. It's the hybrid you play the TM Rescue Mid is designed to hook. It's for slicers!

Totally agreed. The Rescue Mids are offset plus 1 degree closed, and I would get the hooks with them bad at times. I finally changed to the Rescue Dual TPs (slightly heavier swing weight than the mids, plus removes the close face, etc).

I can still hit a bad hook with them every once in a while, but that is the Indian not the arrow in this case. I do not feel like they are going to go 25 yards left on me like the Rescue Mids at times.

I had the Rescue Dual TP, but you can see in my sig I've been using the 585.H for quite awhile now too. The 585.H is the purest hybrid I've hit as far as doing what you ask of it.

And yeah, all of TM's non-TP stuff goes left for me. I won't use any of it.

Actually that's not true, the TM Rescue Mid face is square. This straight from the TM website

Rescue Mid Specifications . I see this posted all over the internet all the time. I've measured mine and they are indeed square. The club does have about 5-6mm of offset that the TP versions don't have though. Better players will generally prefer little or no offset. FWIW, I hit my Rescue Mids straight. I can work them right or left if I have to but my natural swing is a high, slight fade. I wouldn't recommend the TM Rescue Mid to a person who hits a draw as their natural shot.

Damn you are right. So much for believing the Taylormade club fitter.

Okay so the offset is really the big issue, and yes hitting a draw with the club can be an issue. -Justin
