How many hybrids are in your bag and your age?


Recommended Posts

Oooh, I want to play! Zero, I'll be 56 this year. I'm also an 18 index who only hits his driver 200 yards.

However, I do have 4 woods: Driver, 4w, 7w, and 9w at 12, 17, 22, and 25 degrees.

My first iron is a 25 degree M2 6i. I only carry 13 clubs, with the bottom end of my bag going 44, 48, 52, and 56 degrees. I have room for a 60 degree wedge but I usually just make a mess of it so I leave it home.

We're not all naïve. Using the choice of touring pros to justify your choices, as if you're that good. In case "YOU" haven't played with touring pros, they have to make cuts to make money and they

Going a bit off topic but I've got to chime in. I carried 15 clubs for a season. Couldn't make up my mind what to pull out. I mentioned it to a guy in my group that I carried 15 clubs and he would mak

When Dana Quigley played the Champions tour I think his first iron was a 7 and the rest were hybrids.   Edit - correct. https://www.golfdigest.com/story/myshot_gd0611

I’m 69, formerly a 7 handicap about 15 years ago. Now in the high teens cause I can’t hit the ball as long as I used to. I carry driver, 3w, 5w, 19, 22, 26 hybrids, 6,7,8,9,pw, sw (56 degree) A wedge, Ping Anser Scottsdale putter. Have to carry 2 golf bags to accommodate 6 woods and clubs. Two serious cervical surgeries took my strength and distance away. Switched to senior graphite shafts 4 months ago. Hate that I had to. But I love the game so much I can’t give up.

Awesome! 2-6 I guess - same model? At one point I had 2, 3, 4, and 5 hybrids all different brands (TM, Nickent, Ram, Acer). Personally don't need that close gapping in the long clubs but would love to have (and will!) 2, 4, 6 hybrids at the long end of the bag (no need for driver or woods).

Now have 3h and 5h, age 50, hc 23 and play about 2 rounds a week.

At 40 and with a current 1 hdcp, currently have a 17 and a 22. Seriously considering a 5h as well. They're just too easy to hit. I've messed around with going to a 4i and 19* hybrid, but have the most success and best gapping with the 17 & 22.

I guess I'll be the outlier here because I have 5 hybrids in my bag. Hey, it works for me. BTW I'm 51.

@Jifmoli I actually have 4-8 hybrids in my bag. Callaway Big Berthas. I have two 7 hybrids and one of those I use as the 8 hybrid club. I installed a shorter shaft and adjusted the loft to #8 specs. Works like a champ for me.

I'm 57 years young. I currently carry a 5 (26 deg) and 6 (30 deg) hybrid. They're two of my my favorite clubs in the bag. A few years back I had a 4 hybrid as well, but struggled to get it airborne. I replaced it with a 9 wood, and the results are much better. In addition to a driver and mini-driver (a 3 wood replacement), I also have a 7 wood with a 3 wood shaft.

Sure, the hybrids can be hook machines at time. But then again, so were my 5 and 6 irons. Heck, I can hook a gap wedge 40 yds. It's the swing for me, and not the club. That said, I do have plans to check out the Ping G410 hybrids with the adjustable lie angle once the prices come down out of the stratosphere. A flatter lie wouldn't hurt.

In the mid-00's I had a bag with 5 Cobra Bafflers in it, 2 - 6. I couldn't hit a fairway wood to save my life, and the hybrids were much better.

I'm 45 and I've carried 2 hybrids for the last 3 years or so. The 3H replaced my 2i about 10+ years ago. The 4H replaced my 3i about 3 years ago.

19 deg 3H = 230 yards

23 deg 4H = 215 yards

They are clones of each other that I built, same shafts, same grips, same heads (except for loft of course). Extremely versatile and the 4H is much much much easier to hit than a 3i.

I'm 39 and I have zero hybrids.

I did just test a few lately. A Callaway 18° '16 Apex with HZDRUS 105x and a Titleist 19° 818h2 with Tensei white 90x. I liked the 818h2 way more but I found the 5 wood to be more versatile.
