I have an issue I didn’t foresee. I recently got Rogue irons 5-P and Rogue 2H & 4H. All in stuff Shaft. The 5 is at 23’ and the 4H is at 21’ I’m hitting the hybrids a country mile and the irons as well. I’m in love with them. However, it seems my 4H can go about 210-215 while my five iron I can get out to about 190 or so. I was looking at a 5H Apex or Rogue and it’s the same loft as the five iron... I’m confident that would blow past the iron. So is it legit to get a hybrid with similar loft... knowing they’ll both hit very different distances (which is what I’m wanting)? Does that make sense and would the 5H be the right club to bridge this gap? Thanks.

Could work. Why not take your 5i and 4H to a golfshop with trackman. Hit some balls with them and the 5H. You will then know if it does bridge the gap. Not sure if stuff shafts are for sale at golfshops though...  😇

This sounds kind of dumb, but learn to hit the 5i to the right distance.

if the flight is too high you might me setting up too far forward or something?

Do you have a launch monitor like Mevo?

That can tell you a lot.

See if your hybrid hosels can be adjusted to increase loft.

Why not try gripping down, on the 4H, and see if you can produce a reliable 200 yard shot?  There is no reason longer clubs have to be played for maximum distance every time.

    • Well, I am glad I can confirm my sleep efficiency is good. I scored a 91% with my Oura Ring and a 95% with the Whoop. Both show over 1-1.5 hours of deep sleep over a total of 7 hours of sleep. 
    • For me, the bottom changes. I don't play on a perfectly flat surface , like a range mat. The course is rolling terrain. Up hill, down hill, side hill, grass height...effects where the club bottoms, sometimes closer to the lead foot, sometimes closer to the rear foot.  I can hit them thin in any position if I don't adjust for that.  
    • I'm 67. I walk and push. I don't listen to music on the course. I get my hour of music daily at home. I don't need the added hassle. Most folks who I am paired with, who do play music, ask if I mind. I always answer no, I don't mind. It's always low.  Crazy thing...9 out of 10 times...they stream the late 60's/early 70's hits of my youth. Often I get offered a hit. lol Growing up in my house, my 33 year old son introduced me to everything from Jack Johnson to Lamb of God. We both play music. There isn't much out there that will offend me. I also don't want to be that old curmudgeon who screams at clouds. I play enough, I see many of these folks multiple times a season.  Its great to see the number of younger golfers on the course these days. Maybe some will stay long after the zombie apocalypse eases. Stay safe and healthy
    • Played Friday with two buddies.  They need a cart so it was cold.  Despite the marginal weather (40 degrees, 10 mph and overcast), we had a decent time.  We teed off at 9:30 as there was no frost and beat the mob.  Had to skip a hole to get around a slothful foursome who refused to recognize reality.  Shot a 79 (9.9 differential if we were in season - bogey for the unplayed hole), which I consider a good round considering the very soggy course This could be my last round of 2020.  The days end early, with sunset at 5:03 pm right now.  Add frost delays in the morning and the time window for playing 18 holes on a jammed course has become very small.  
    • My new goal is to  break 60 at a local 18 hole par 3 course (par 54. Tiny, beaten up crowned greens, ankle high rough if you miss the green. Longest hole is a 9 iron.....) Playing that little course has really helped me dial in my short game.
