Hybrid clubs, such as the cleveland hybrid club(s), are gaining in popularity with recreational golfers and pros alike. Sometimes called utility clubs, this technology combines the best features of woods and irons. Aside from lightening their golf bag, these clubs offer golfers a number of advantages.
According to manufacturers and players, hybrids increase air and mitigate mishits. These clubs were created as a replacement for long irons, specifically the two, three, and four irons, though they can sometimes do the work of the five iron as well. They provide an easier hit and aid in gaining greater air height on long shots.
Though these type of clubs were an instant hit with amateurs, professionals are also beginning to see the advantages of this technology. Those who’ve used these clubs say they achieve better accuracy and more forgiveness than with traditional irons. New golfers are encouraged to buy a hybrid set, which usually omits the three and four irons and replaces them with utility clubs. Even seasoned golfers say they notice a marked improvement in performance and accuracy.
Recreational golfers usually lack two important elements that make using traditional long irons a disadvantage for them: swing speed and skill. They don’t have the experience to hit low and keep their head behind the ball on the swing through on a constant basis, and they don’t have the same speed and accuracy. The hybrid club is thicker, which changes the center of gravity, and has a larger dimension at the face. This levels the playing field, so to speak.
