5 wood vs 15-20* hybrid


Recommended Posts

Yeah I'm with most here it look like.. Driver, 3w, 3 & 4 hybrid, then 5-Lw.. I get great distance and flight out of my hybrids as well as a little more versatility.. But that's just me..

That is my exact configuration right now. However I still don't trust my hybrids. So it could change unless I get them under control.

My preference is to go hybrid over the 5 wood. Fits my game better seeing as I don't find the short grass that often. If I was more accurate off the tee, then 5 wood.

Just curious what the popular choice is. Assuming you hit these clubs the same distance +/- a couple yards, what do you prefer to have in the bag? No specific to any brand, just wondering what the majority likes to hit.

Let's see what the fitting Jedi thinks!!

I know what I will be watching this evening. I love my hybrid from the fairway and tee box In my opinion the original reason for them (out if the rough) doesn't seem to work as well with the newer models. At least that has been my experience; especially in Bermuda rough.

I don't like hitting fairways from the ground so I go right from my 3 iron to my 16 degree hybrid.

If you're just curious none

 

I go 22 degree hybrid, 4 wood, driver. That combination fits my swing, my gapping and the courses that I regularly play best. It allows for nice 12 yard spacing all the way to my 60.

 

If you're doing this to figure out what you should do - don't. Your game and where you play is unique to you. Ask your pro what he recommends for you or do some trial and error to see what combo works best.

 

Good luck!

Interesting that this is almost my exact answer, except my hybrid is 19° with a 22° 4 iron crossover.  Honestly, the numbers on irons anymore or so jacked that they really just need to start putting the lofts on clubs.  I play a "4 wood", which is 16.5° fairway club, because I suck with a 3 wood on a consistent basis.

 

But the rev is right.  Put clubs in your bag that fit the golf course you play the most.  It will be different for everyone.  If you read enough about what the pros put in their bags, you'll find that it varies from week to week, depending on what course they are playing.  They are always switching out fairway clubs for long irons or hybrids in some different shape or form.  Same with their wedges.  I play a mid bounce 58° wedge because it suits my home course.  However, if I always had a ton of tight lies around greens I would be playing a low bounce wedge.  If I had a bunch of thick rough around the green, high bounce wedge.  My home course has a mixture of both of those, and I can only have 14 clubs, so mid bounce lob wedge it is for me.  Works great for me.

I prefer a 5-wood because the head has a higher MOI, so its more forgiving and the shaft is longer, so you get more distance.  I tried to learn how to hit hybrids for years but never really got a feel for them.  I always seemed to top them because I want to put them a bit forward in my stance and sweep them off the ground, like a fairway wood.

When I tried putting them more in the middle of my stance and hitting them like a mid iron, I would block them to the right.

Every now and then I would be able to put it together and be able to hit them well but I was very inconsistent with them.  Now, Ive got a 5-wood and the thing is a cannon.  Even when my swing is a little off, I can hit it 200 yards and fairly straight.

Most hybrids I’ve tried are hook prone. One reason is that they tend to have upright lie angles. My new Hogan hybrid is 18* loft and 58.5 lie, close to a typical 5 wood lie angle. The thing is a crusher and not hooky at all.

After getting fit into the G410 irons and fitting myself into the F9 driver this season I have been demoing the G410 and F9 hybrids. I currently game an older cobra 17* 2 hybrid which I hit 210-230 depending whether it is off the ground or a tee. 

Most of the Golf Town locations around me do not seem to have the 2H in stock for the Ping or Cobra, so I have been hitting the 19* models. One day I tried the F9 hybrid against the F9 5 wood in standard loft since there were no 17s. I was surprised to see the same distance from the hybrid due to better contact, I figured the 17* would be more comparable to a 5W while also getting a tighter dispersion. Has me very interested to get my hands on the 2H and see whether there is any improvement over my 8 year old model. 

Like anything equipment related, it's highly personal and your only solution is to demo them for yourself. The shorter shafts improves my contact and the smaller head is better from a variety of lies and varying trajectories. The perfectly struck shot will be slightly longer with a wood but in my experience the average with the hybrid is better, especially the misses. I did struggle with hooking higher lofted hybrids this year which got subbed out for 4 and 5 irons (again, better misses and even less need for max distance in this part of the bag). The 2H doesn't seem to have the hook problem and the adjustability on new models should further mitigate it. So that should be less of a stigma than when hybrids first came out.
