What are the lofts on hybrids?
There really is no set hybrid loft, with hybrids coming in anywhere from 16 degrees all the way through the bag with some beginners and higher handicaps using hybrid irons. Most tour players with hybrids in the bag will have them between 18-22 degrees to replace their 2 and 3 irons.
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.
Should I replace my 5 iron with a hybrid?
If you’re unsure whether to go fairway or hybrid to replace a 5-iron, think about which you currently prefer to hit from the turf. And if you’re a big fan of fairways don’t be embarrassed to fill loft gaps between your driver and irons with two or three woods; there’s no rule that says you have to use hybrids.
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.
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.
How much does 1 degree of loft affect distance?
The distance difference between clubs is created equally by the increments in club length and loft angle. The calculations here are based on 1/2″ club length difference = 5 yards distance difference and every 4° loft angle difference = 5 yards distance difference.
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 is a 3 hybrid loft?
Loft angle on a 3-wood is frequently between 15 degrees and 18 degrees and a 3-hybrid loft angle is mostly between 22 degrees and 23 degrees. This should indicate that the two clubs are not competing with each other but provide you with two vastly different options.
What’s easier to hit a 5 wood or 3 hybrid?
3 Hybrid: Greater versatility out of the fairway and rough While the 5 wood can be easier to hit off of a tee, the 3 hybrid provides such great versatility out of the fairway and the rough. The hybrid is one of the most versatile clubs in the bag and provides you with an option from just about any situation.
