Anyone used Thomas Golf hybrids?

Hello,

Has anyone used Thomas hybrid golf clubs please?

I am having a back repair (68 yrs) and am considering hybrids as a

way of continuing to play golf if my movement becomes more restricted.

Also how do reduce the line spacing on the tags and replies?

Thanks and regards,

Dennis

Since it's been 4 days and no replies, I guess no one uses them. I've never heard of them. Who knows they could be great. Enlighten us, please.

As for hybrids in general, I love them! I get long iron loft and distance, but I can actually get the ball up off the ground! I no longer carry an iron lower in number than 6!

Good day Bucky,

They are an American company, google Thomas Golf, the company offers good results and of course testimonials. Nothing like genuine feed back though.

My interest is related to using the hybrids after upcoming back correction surgery.

I am 68 and would like more years of golf.

I do have some hybrids (Callahan RZR X #3 & #4) and like them. 

I believe that the hybrids may help me to continue to play.

Thanks for your interest, regards Dennis

Sure you don't mean Callaway?

Good to know. Always searching for info. Some years back when I found I couldn't hit my 2 iron over a sports car at 30 yards, I decided I need to look into hybrids, which were brand new on the market. The first one I bought was a Cleveland 2 hybrid which is still in my bag! It's a great club, and I can hit it long and straight, and get it up in the air! You're 4 years older than me. Definitely check out the hybrids.

Like I said above, I don't carry an iron lower in number than a 6 anymore!

What kind of back surgery, DJ? Some involve more restriction in movement, others less. Some require a longer recuperation, some less. I had what nowadays is considered "minor" surgery, a laminectomy, last November. I began practicing at a little over 4 months. I would suggest a good sports backbrace, though. I now practice 2-3 times a week and play at least once a week. I'm coming up on my 72nd b-day. 

But about hybrids...I think all should use them. I have two types: direct long iron replacements that are the length of and mimic the irons they replace; and traditional that are longer in length and may (for some) replace fairway woods. I would suggest lighter shafts, steel or graphite. AND that you see a professional fitter. But the search is really FUN! 

Finally, I have hit the Thomas clubs. A friend had a full set. He played well with them, and I found them easy to hit. Their are other brands out there. Good luck with surgery and in your fun search for new clubs! Keep us posted.  -Marv

Hello Marv, things for me have changed. The surgery outcome would not really gain me a huge amount. I would have to say that suits me just fine. I am therefore working on my game from a different perspective. It would have been 2 long surgeries about a week apart.

All of the golf work is done by my shoulders and arms, no weight shift etc. This is beginning to show results. Driver to 200 metres, 5 wood about 170 and so on.

I have 2 Callaway hybrids and intend to buy a #5. While I am not a long hitter, I am forced to be a straight hitter. Overall I am enjoying the game. 

Thank you for your interest and help,

Kind regards, Dennis

Dennis, I sure understand your comments. Even before surgery, my swing was slowing, and while I no longer have the terrific pain in my legs and can turn a bit, my swing is still slow. Drives are 180-190 carry but straight, so I must "own" the second shot. Where possible, that's where the 5 wood or long hybrids come in if they are working that day. I just make sure that what ever happens, I can get on the green and use the putter. Scores are slowly dropping. And I too am enjoying the game. Best wishes, -Marv

I use the entire at-705 set 4-SW. Breaking 80 now. Like them a lot because they fit my natural swing the better than traditional fairways and irons.

I use the Thomas Golf 3H and 4H...I like them, find them not to be extremely long but they are consistent and I continue to play with them for the past 3 years.  I tried a few others but settled on the Thomas Golf 3H and 4 H and am still playing with them and not looking to replace them...That is the best info I can give you...

My first year playing (when 55yrs. old) I purchased a Thomas Golf 1H (16L) on the internet, looking for a 1 iron. The plan was to use it to replace the driver, which I could not hit straight enough to save me at that time. The club looked great and was ok, but I was new to the game and I got as much distance from Cleveland Mashie 2H, and played with the Mashie 2H (18L) and 4H(23L) for several years thereafter. Didn't really give the Thomas club a chance. I use Callaway 5H and 4H now, not off the tee, but for long clubs off the fairway. I do tend to pull the hybrids and have to adjust for that. Hybrids are probably the best of my options for shots 170 yards and over. I experiment from time to time with woods and long irons, but the hybrids quickly find there way back to my bag.

    • Just to update everyone who was kind enough to respond I am due to go for a wrist arthroscopy on 19th Dec.  There is a chance they still won't find anything to diagnose the problem but I am trying not to think about that as that would mean no more golf!   ps. I had 10 sessions of acupuncture and while it helped ease the pain after I aggravated it when last trying to hit a ball it didn't help with the recovery of the main problem (I went to the range after 9 sessions and it took only 6 PW/7Iron shots for the pain to return).
    • A) Thanks and I've already started squatting, just low weight right now but I agree, it makes a big difference. I don't know how to dead-lift so I'd have to get a trainer but I was thinking about this anyway. I might have to go start this as well. Thanks. B) cool, I will take a look and see what I think. Appreciated. C) Thanks man, it is just that, an experiment. I don't take it personally if some think it's stupid or wrong headed. I'm totally willing to be proven wrong. There is really nothing to lose trying and I really think I'm right anyway haha. 
    • Huh? Call a rule official. You cant start a new one, while reacting to the current one. Needs to be 12 hours in between. 
    • @iacas We have data though. I was a 13cap after playing for over 20 years as a righty with a good back. We totally have a base line. I am right handed and it obviously will be more difficult to play and learn left handed. I don't think anyone would dispute that. So if I get anywhere near my old cap after playing lefty for a two to three years I would say that's a huge success. It took me well over 10 years of playing to get down to a 14hc. If I can get near that in a few years with my physical limitations and obstacles I would say that's a huge success. I'd be thrilled if I could get below a 20 within a few years. I will not endanger my back for golf. I have said that several times already and I mean it. This thread could sputter out before it gets going if there are any signs of pain or discomfort.  The advantage of learning lefty is that I'll be able to control the speed much easier. I had a very fast swing speed ingrained for many years and could never lay off it like some guys could. I'll be training new neuro pathways in the brain and won't have to overcome the previous ones from playing righty.  I have no clue what my potential will be learning left handed and not hitting the ball far like I used to. I think if I were thinking of someone else doing this in my situation I'd say anything around 20 would be really good for this year. 
    • Hi, regarding the username I am not sure what happened. I think I may have logged in with my phone and might have used my google user name? Or its possible I might have made two accounts having forgot about one.  Maybe my phone saved that login information from a few years back? I am not sure but I bet that's it. I'm using my computer at home now so if it posts as Faksakes I"m betting that's it. As for the HC I have no clue what to expect. I might not get below a 30, I really have no idea.
