What Is a Hybrid Golf Club?

 

The hybrid golf club, sometimes called a utility club, is a combination of a fairway wood and a long iron. Most hybrids are designed with a club head comparable to a fairway wood: hollow steel or titanium with a shallow and somewhat curved face, giving it an iron-like lie angle. The hybrid's lie, length and weight are very similar to that of an iron; the head is designe...

How to Hit a Pitching Wedge

Mar 14, 2018 12:00:00 PM

Known to many as the reigning king of short chip shots is the 9 iron golf club. With a loft of 41°-48°, the 9 iron is the loftiest of the non-wedge clubs and will average 120 yards (180 if you’re Bubba). As such, the ball is not going to roll out as much as it would with the other irons in your golf bag. For the most part, when the ball hits the ground, it’s not going anywhere.

 

When a player needs...

Tips On Swinging A 6 Iron

Mar 8, 2018 12:00:00 PM

The 6 iron golf club falls into the “mid-iron” range and is the perfect club to choose when you want to get a little more aggressive with your shot. While typical yardage for the average player is 130 – 150, Tiger Woods once hit a 6 iron 218 yards, over water, landing 18 feet from the cup – this famous shot pretty much clinched the victory for him at the Canadian Open at Glen Abbey in 2000. We can...

Mar 6, 2018 12:00:00 PM

“Hit down with your short irons and sweep your long irons.” It’s great advice; however, it’s easier said than done with a 4-iron golf club. In general, using a longer club creates the tendency of a harder swing. Nevertheless, longer irons give a much more sweeping motion than do other irons in your bag.

 

Considered one of the longer irons, the 4-iron golf club is largely used to hit the ball from b...

Ask any golfer which club is the most difficult to hit and most likely every single one of them will tell you the long iron. However, nothing beats the precision of a beautifully-hit long iron golf club. Your 3-iron is one of the longer irons in your golf bag. As it leaves very little room for error, it is sometimes avoided by many players. However, when the 3-iron is hit just right, your ball wil...

One of the most feared misses in the game of golf is the hook – when the ball starts out straight or to the right of the target (right-handed players) but then curves around to the far left. This dreaded left curve is usually caused by two things: club path through impact and face alignment at impact. For the ball to hook like this, it will be in a counter-clockwise spin direction.

 

To fix a hook, ...
