hybrids

11 posts in this topic

I currently hit a g2 stiff ping driver that I like very much and a kzg 4 wood instead of a 3 wood I took the 3 wood out of my bag.i hit the 4 wood about 218 average.I also have a 21 degree callawa yrazor x hl  hybrid. l would like to add another hybrid.Im having some difficulty with my hybrid because I think I press to much .looking to replace or add another club from 200 yards.it needs to be easy to hit like 8/10 times for me to spend the money.

THANKS   CALVIN

PS Would i be better to keep my hybrid and add a 23/25 degree to my bag and just practice more hitting my hybrid off the ground .Ithink with my hybrid im going to try moving the ball back a little in my stance to give me more of a descending hit.

I have a 23* Callaway X 2 Hot hybrid and its the best one I've ever hit. I tried every hybrid golfsmith had and that one felt the best. It has very little offset not to big of a head and is very easy to hit. I liked the 23 so much I went and got a 19.

Echo the suggestion.  I hit 5 or 6 hybrid and bought an X Hot 19* 3 Hybrid.  Love the club.  Dependable off the tee, cuts through rough.  Totally recommend the "X" Callaway series hybrids.

I just exchanged a 4 hybrid Nike Covert 2.0 and went with a 23 degree Ping G25. Was hitting it really well. The added logt may have been what I was looking for.

Thanks everyone for the great advice I will certainly keep it in  mind when I go to tryout some hybrids this week.Iwill certainly tryout the callawayx2hot  23 degree to see how I hit and maybe the 19 as well while im there.Played today and concentrated on my hybrid more moving the ball back a little bit and more of a downswing and was smiling a little bit more  lol.Shave a few more strokes and I will be very close to where I feel I can play everyday .By the way im 54 years old and im walking to get into shape only played 45 holes so its early.

Having extreme trouble hitting my hybrid. Hit a Ping g15 well the other day. It has been a revolving door of hybrids from new to old.

Had a similar problem with hybrids, in the end I finished up putting two mizuno hi fly in the bag,they more of a cross between hybrid and long iron's,but seem to more suited to a vary of lies you can get, launch the ball with a mid trajectory and do not balloon. Very accurate clubs when hit in the centre Also find the 20deg good of tee when you need play placement on dog leg fairways.

Mizuno JPX Fli Hi hybrid are similar to the Ping rapture 2/18deg driving iron/hybrid, Mizuno come in 20deg/23deg,  similar to Ping G or I series hybrids in loft only.

Same trouble here, I'll take this "minor situation" over another thread and see if I can get this straightened out(pun intended!)

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
    • Playing there next year. My buddy is getting married there, we have discussed this very topic and have agreed to re-tee as we will never play there again. Plus with our scores it really doesn't matter an 8 there will match a couple others on the card.
