Hybrid Club Distances

Hybrids are clubs that are between a wood and an iron. They used to be considered the province of high handicappers, but now even some golfing professionals see the value to the clubs.

Hybrids typically have about the same loft as the corresponding wood or iron, but look like a smaller version of the wood and may have a slightly longer shaft than the iron. For example, a hybrid-3 might have a loft of a 21 degrees, similar to a 3 wood and a 3 iron. The smaller club size and the way is weighted means the hybrid is better able to dig a ball out of the rough.

The table below shows indicative distances for hybrid clubs. The distances are displayed in yards.
