When & why: hybrids

Did you watch last week’s AIG Women’s Open? You won’t find a better example of the importance of course management than Carnoustie, and with the extra roll on firm fairways even great drives can go awry. It might be time to take your hybrids out...

Driver and hybrid
Pulling driver isn't always the smart play

The conundrum

Since hybrids roll out less after landing, you’ve got a much better chance of it staying on the short grass. You want to be giving yourself a look at pars & birdies, rather than straggling to bogeys, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise that a playing from the fairway – rather than a bunker, water or the trees - gives you what you want.


The solution

Just because you’re not taking the driver out doesn’t mean you should be miles away from the green with your second shot. That’s why Wilson Staff has designed its D9 hybrids with Variable Face Technology; creating crazy ball speed & added distance with a high launch, even with off-centre strikes. And, let's face it: we could all do with that help from time-to-time!

Despite all this talk of finding fairways, a big part of hybrids is the versatility; hitting them off the deck as well. The progressive head shapes of the D9 hybrids really come into their own here as they let the club sit square at address to give you confidence and easy launch from any lie.
