When & why: hybrids

Did you watch last week’s AIG Women’s Open? You won’t find a better example of the importance of course management than Carnoustie, and with the extra roll on firm fairways even great drives can go awry. It might be time to take your hybrids out...

Pulling driver isn't always the smart play

The conundrum

Since hybrids roll out less after landing, you’ve got a much better chance of it staying on the short grass. You want to be giving yourself a look at pars & birdies, rather than straggling to bogeys, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise that a playing from the fairway – rather than a bunker, water or the trees - gives you what you want.


The solution

By building its Apex hybrids with Jailbreak bars and A.I.-designed Flash Face, Callaway has optimised distance in these hybrids so that you don’t find yourself too much further back off the tee. The first thing you’ll notice is the iron-like look at address, which will no doubt fill you with confidence just before pulling the trigger. When you combine this with the workable shot-shaping, particularly in the more compact Apex Pro model, you’re getting incredible amounts of control while still sending your ball way down there.

Despite all this talk of finding fairways, a big part of hybrids is the versatility; hitting them off the deck as well. A precisely-shaped dual MIM’ed tungsten weight inside the clubheads affords you a strong, stable launch for exactly that purpose; allowing you to hit these hybrids high and far into the heart of the green.
