What degree loft is a 5 wood?
For example, standard 5-woods are about 19 degrees. Comparing that to an 18-degree hybrid would be a fair test. While the 5-wood has one more degree of loft, it should also be slightly longer, making the distance potential of the two clubs about the same.
What is a 5 hybrid used for?
It can hit for distance but is more often used for shorter distances that need a lot of height behind them. They are great for rough or making your way through obstacles. They typically have a loft angle of about 26 degrees. The 5 hybrid is designed to be a mix between a wood and an iron.
What club does a 5 hybrid replace?
Although the 5-hybrid is meant to replace the 5-iron, golfers can hit the ball farther with a hybrid than with an iron. This means a 5-hybrid has a longer distance range than a 5-iron. Furthermore, most golfers I come across, say that they find their 5-hybrid to be more accurate than a 5-iron.
What hybrid would replace a 5 iron?
A typical 5-iron loft is between 27 degrees and 28 degrees and is best replaced with a 24-27 degree hybrid.
What is a 6 hybrid golf club?
Essentially a 6 hybrid acts as a rescue club, a cross between a 6-iron and a fairway wood. They are popular because players find them easier to hit than a long iron. And their low center of gravity makes it easier to loft the ball into the air.
What is a 5 wood equivalent to?
As a rough rule of thumb, a 5 wood would replace a 2 iron, a 7 wood the 3 or 4 iron, a 9 wood the 5 iron.
Does a 5 wood replace a 3 iron?
Many golfers prefer hitting a high-lofted wood into a green than a hard-to-hit long iron. The larger clubhead of a fairway wood compared to an iron makes it easier to achieve more distance without over-swinging. As a general rule of thumb, a 5-wood would replace a 2-iron a 7-wood the 3- or 4-iron, a 9-wood the 5-iron.
