Adams DHY Hybrid

Recommended Posts

inthecup    23
I just picked up a few Adams DHY hybrids. 18, 21 and 24 degree. I have never gotten along with hybrids. They all turn into hook machines for me for some reason. The DHY makes me feel comfortable. They replace my 2,3 and 4 iron. I was the odd guy that liked my long irons. I played in League with the 18 degree in the bag, pulled it once and hit one down the middle off the tee. Had a range session with the rest and they are definitely easier to hit the the irons but we will see. I don't expect them to be hot I am just hoping for more consistency. I also hope the 18 is easier to hot off the deck. If they are more consistent I get more average distance,so it is all good. I'll report back.

Sounds good.  Keep us posted.  I carry one Titleist 3H and a Mizuno FliHi 4iron, which is like a hybrid.  The 4i is a great club for me.  With the 3H, I have to be careful not to speed up my backswing or I will hook.  I try to slow it down because the club feels lighter to me even though the swing weight is close.

So far so good.  Have a range session last night.  Got to hot all three.  Early indications is that they are a little easier to hit off the deck.  The impact is a bit muted, when you miss it is harder to tell where.  I have to confess that nutting a 2 iron is a great feeling, the hybrid is not quite the same.  If it is more consistent I will get over it.

I have a few rounds under my belt with the DHy's. So far so good. Hit a 240 yard drive off a tee with the 2-18 degree this morning. Much more consistent than a 2 iron for sure and I would not get distances like that with the 2 iron. I think this is something to look at if you don't like hybrids. It's the non hybrid hybrid.

Great! I am really considering changing out my hybrids, I carry a 3 and 4 H right now, both Adams and love them.. Only issued is they are old now and I'm wondering if I can benefit from the new tech out there.. Will give these a go! Thanks

If you hit standard hybrids we'll stick with the standard design. I hook hybrids, I don't know why but I do, my garage is full of them. A standard design hybrid is more friendly than a DHy.

I see what you mean now.. Most likely the first ones I will test out will be the new tight lie hybrids instead then..

    • Gotcha. Thanks. That's a possibility too. I don't feel like I am hanging back but as you know feel ain't real.  Most likely my problem is a combination of things (maybe ball too far back combined with hanging back?). This started happening out of the blue and has been going on for about 2 weeks (5-6 rounds), and even with range work i have not been able to shake it off... yet! Thank you all for the suggestions. I'll try to double check them one at a time until I can tell for sure whether my not implementing them is the culprit. It shouldn't be too hard to recover from this, but it sure is annoying...
    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/JonMa1/round/1859679?hole_id=34840967 Short and mid iron approaches were pretty good. Pitches, chips were fine. I just had a rough time controlling the driver until the 13th today. Also had issues topping some 5i and 4i shots though I did hit a couple nice 4i shots. Putting was pretty poor today. I'm getting acceptable distance from my driver since having the shaft shortened and contact seems better. Unfortunately, controlling the club face continues to be a challenge. Excessive penalties have been the theme for 2017. Lowering my handicap from longer courses will be next to impossible if I don't improve this part of my game.
    • I'm surprised he didn't at least ponder if there was a rule on that. I didn't know but had it happened to me I definitely would've asked my partner or someone there, 'hey is there a rule about this?' Certainly shows how it pays to know the rules. 
    • At 63 I have all the same challenges others have noted. In addition, poorer eyesight has been a new challenge. I never had to play with glasses from age 10 to late 40's and then quit golf. Now at 63 and back playing golf, just seeing the ball clearly at address has been a significant issue for me. And of course corrective lenses that work at address aren't right for reading or distance vision. Anyone else? I'm afraid between poorer vision and all the senior physical challenges, my days of consistently finding the sweet spot on my clubs are probably over. Game improvement clubs here I (reluctantly) come...
    •  I bought one. I gave a review somewhere here. Anyway, short version: i wasn't real impressed with it. Not to mention it looks like an Alien Sandwedge from days back. It's rather embarrassing to have in the bag. Playability wise it does help with basic green side bunkers but without real options for adjustments for wanting different shot types. I actually decided to watch @mvmac's bunker post again and got a tip from him as well which had me doing much better with my 56* Ping Glide 2.0. it didn't give me any good feedback on tight lies from turf. As usual it's more about proper technique so the club now sits in my closet.
