|WHAT’S IN YOUR BAG?
WITH THE RISING POPULARITY of hybrids and their ease of use, it makes sense that players would want to hit as many as possible. Typically Tour pros might carry one hybrid, but that doesn’t mean you should limit how many you carry.
When juniors start playing the game, I suggest they carry a few hybrids to get the ball up in the air and in play. This breeds confidence, which is absolutely necessary for anyone new to the game.
As you improve, start swapping out hybrids for longer irons. Switch out a 24° hybrid for a 4-iron, and so on. As your ballstriking improves, move up to clubs that’ll produce the type of shots that you’re now capable of hitting.
Players with slower swing speeds should consider playing with an iron-wood set that incorporates the qualities of both irons and woods.
