Proper set up with a hybrid club

Joseph Cyr

Q: What is the proper set up for hitting the new hybrid club? Is the angle of approach more like an iron or fairway wood?

A: Hello Joseph! The new hybrid clubs are amazing aren't they? The answer to your question depends on which type of hybrid clubs you are referring to. If you're referring to your more traditional hybrid, like a utility club, then you would play it like a longer iron such as a 3- or 4-iron. If you are referring to these new "Transition" sets where companies are selling entire sets of hybrids, then it would all depend on what club you were hitting. Try to think of a "proper set up" in reference to length of the club and not so much to the number or loft of it. Take advantage of the technology Joseph, it can make a big difference. Best of luck.
