One of the biggest changes in golf equipment in recent years has been the switch from long irons (#s 2-4) to the hybrid clubs. Technological changes in both clubs and balls made this come about, and almost by necessity.
It was fortunate for Hunter Mahan that he made a bunch of key putts down the stretch at Firestone, because several times it looked to like he either didn't have a pre-set strategy to play the final holes, or if he did, he didn't stick with it.
Each year when I watch the British Open I am reminded of two extremely important concepts that every golfer should learn and master. First, when around the green, putt when you can. Second, hit down on your woods like you hit down on your irons.
It wasn't long after the beginning of the 2010 John Deere Classic that you knew it was going to be a special tournament. After all, most of us thought that we were going to watch a Paul Goydos runaway victory after he posted only the fourth 59 ever shot on the PGA Tour.

I'm a 8 handicap and just bought a 3 and 4 hybrid iron. I'm pull hooking them left. As of now, my 3 and 4 iron are more accurate. How do I adjust?
I need a tip for hitting the long irons, 3-5. I hit the lower irons fine and feel quite comfortable. I can hit the long irons, however the feel and ease is just not there.
I am hitting a lot of iron shots off center towards the toe of the club. I checked my lie and it is center. Any suggestions on drills to get the shots more toward the center of the club?
All of my clubs are custom fit. I love my 54 degree wedge but constantly chunk my 58 degree 20 yards or scull it 150 yards. I don't know how to hit it. Please help. Where do I place the ball in my stance and how do I stop mishitting this club?
I switched to the stack and tilt swing. Works great for me. Can I use it with the driver? Can't seem to find a good ball position. My iron shots are great. Thank you.
What is the proper set up for hitting the new hybrid club? Is the angle of approach more like an iron or fairway wood?
I'm aged 66 and an 18-handicap with a swing speed around 85 mph. I have a consistent ball pattern of straight-ish right-to-left. I'm looking for a little more control on short irons but not to sacrifice distance (The Holy Grail I guess!).
I've been golfing for several years. For the life of me, I still can't hit any long irons. I've tried different things, taken lessons but just can't get it together. I've been told the hybrids are the way to got but I think I need to fix my fundamentals first.
Is a 3-iron comparable to a 5-wood? Is a 5-iron comparable to a 7-wood? Will these clubs hit the ball approximately the same distance? -- Roy Conner
