You obviously enjoy the great game of golf. Don’t You? Yet it can be very frustrating at times – especially with those long irons. You hit a decent tee shot but then comes the dreaded second shot. Sometimes the contact is not good, or you hit it on the toe or heel. Instead of going straight, the ball turns around to chase you. Instead of flying high and landing softly on the green, it tries to roll its way to the green – Oh! there is water in between. It’s always one thing or the other.

That is exactly where these wood like hybrid golf clubs come to the rescue. If you and I had all day to practice like the pros, we could hit with any club any shot all the time. But we have a job to do and kids to attend to and all the other things that a regular guy has to do. We don’t have that kind of time. We want a club that will work with our imperfections and even if we mis-hit, which is often, it will at least get the ball going in the general direction with a reasonable trajectory.

Some of these wood like hybrid clubs with wide sole come with the new Acculite steel shafts. Conventional steel shafts are 120 to 130 grams. These light weight steel shafts are 90 to 95 grams. The lighter weight helps generate faster swing speeds and that translates to greater distance. The lower center of gravity inherent in these wood like hybrids give you better trajectory and the wider face means a more forgiving club. You may even start playing at those extra long courses because distance won’t be your problem now.

Imagine your approach shots flying high and far and landing softly on the greens. The more greens you hit in regulation, the lower your score. How many points can you shave off your current average?

Wide sole hybrid clubs combined with a lightweight steel shaft also become a good substitute to Drivers on hazardous holes. You get good distance and better control. Why risk an out of bounds.

Many will gladly spend $175 on such a club from Callaway, Nike etc. and they do as they are worth it. However; there are lesser known brands available from smaller outfits like InterloperGolf at a fraction of the cost. Instead of paying $175, you can end up with an excellent hybrid club for around $50. They’ll even customize the shaft flex and length etc. for you. That’s what smart customers do. They get the clubs they want at a fraction of the cost.

Hybrid clubs have become a bigger market than woods and irons because of their versatility and forgiveness. Those who are good at irons prefer the iron like hybrids. Those that are not prefer the wood like hybrid clubs. Right at address, the larger head gives you confidence. Take a swing and let it rip. Watch as the ball flies high and long and then lands softly on the green. While others are going helter skelter as usual looking for their balls, you remove the headcover from your putter and confidently stride forward to the green.

Some of the popular choices in wood like hybrid golf clubs are listed below:

They all have their variations and stronger points. See which one suits you best. One thing is for sure – your midrange game would be better from now on because of these hybrid clubs.

Good Luck!
