Hybrid that doesn't go left.

Recommended Posts

I've typically had trouble with hybrids wanting to go left, therefore have settled with just a 3 iron.  I don't mind it off the tee, but from the fairway it is significantly harder to hit than my 4 iron.

 

I'm partial to ping woods the last couple years, but would be willing to try out other brands.

 

What do you all suggest?

 

Thanks.

I had issues with the G400's pulling left off any sort of tee. Got fit, as most will suggest. I wound up with the big "-" setting (opened up) G410's and I have been very happy both off the tee and the deck.

A bought G410 hybrid month ago after reading alll the Ping Love.Started on the Flat setting but didnt need it.G410 hybrid very easy to hit.Great resale also.

22 set at 24,then 16 adams tight lies 4wd then 10.5 917.

The open, flat lie on titleist fairways for me is just a slice to offset the hook...not really any use to me so sold my 915,917,tsi fwys,cheers,Roger

816/818 are the first hybrids that i have ever got along with for this exact reason.  I have not tried newer ones from Titleist but I am loving my new driver and 3 wood

When hybrids boomed back about 2005, the average ones had a fair amount of offset. The goal was replace long irons with a club that was easy to hit, including square up.

 

The pro and tour hybrid heads were more likely to have square faces. This helped to limit left misses for those who had good motion through the ball.

 

Second factor: as with fairway woods, flattening the lie and lowering loft (opening the face slightly) will help prevent left misses

 

Third factor: ball position. For most golfers, hybrids fly best if you hit down on them like an iron rather than sweep them like a wood. People who sweep hybrids tend to play the ball too far forward, which means the clubhead has closed down - rather than squared up - by impact.

 

Oddly, this ball position hint came to me from a Chicago area club pro who was also a Titleist rep. At a demo day, he showed me that left misses with a driver could be caused by playing the ball too far forward (the close-down zone).

 

What's In The Bag (Summary as of October 2020)

 

Driver:  Tour Edge EXS 10.5°, set 9.5°; weights neutral   ||  FWs:  Calla Rogue 4W + 7W

Hybrid:  Calla Big Bertha OS 4H at 22°  ||  Irons:  Tour Edge CB Pro Tungsten 4i-9i

Wedges*:  Calla MD3: 48°... MD4: 54°, 58° ||  Putter: Ping Sigma G Tyne (face-balanced) + Evnroll Gravity Grip

Ball: Calla SuperHot (Orange preferred)  ||  Bag: Sun Mountain Three 5 stand bag

     * MD4 54°/10 S-Grind replaced MD3 54°/12 W-Grind.

I hated hybrids for the longest time as I have had the same issues. Went for a driving iron which was great off the tee but couldn’t get it high enough off the deck. Saw a TXG video on the mizuno CLK hybrid with Chris V and they explained from factory it is in the most anti left setting allowing the player to dial it back in increments if it fades to much.
 

Let me tell you, it’s made be a believer in hybrids again. Good flight and shape but doesn’t really go left. Really solid anti left hybrid for those who are wary. Also since it’s a mizuno hybrid and their woods fly under the radar, I was able to find one barely used for a great deal

Take some lessons, the “hybrids go left” thing is so over exaggerated on here. 
 

I play with a couple scratch guys and multiple low single digit guys and everyone of them could hit any modern hybrid from a major manufacturer and keep it in play consistently, as long as the shaft is right. 

Well not everyone is a scratch golfer nor will they ever be.  Certain clubs perform differently for different people, and I have tried a few.  It's not about changing your swing to fit a certain club, bc I could do that, but that defeats the purpose.  The idea is to find a club that fits your swing.

Could be he doesn’t have the skill set that your scratch friends have and it might take him awhile, even with lessons, to get there.  My miss is always right, but when you take a decent amount of loft and add a very low center of gravity (like a hybrid or 7 wood), the lefts can be a very real thing.  Even among pga tour quality strikers (plenty of scratch or better players that hit hooks with hybrids).  If they have trouble, it should be no surprise that a 5 hcp like myself could have issues with hybrids going left.  Don’t get me wrong, I play a hybrid (sim max) and like it, but they definitely can go left and that is not necessarily an easy to fix swing flaw.

I can assure you, your club is not the issue. 
 

This is a place where new equipment is more important than sound technique and solid fundamentals, but one day you’ll realize it’s the indian not the arrow, and “changing your swing” isn’t as easy as you claim it to be.

I can assure you, as a 6 hcp I am far from perfect, but some clubs suit my swing and others don't.  I do not play a draw with any of my irons or woods, but have hit uncontrollable draws with the few hybrids I have tried.

This is part of the fitting process, starting with a club that fits your swing.  A club fitter wouldn't put a regular shaft in the hands of a 115 mph swing speed.

Don't be an a** and don't assume I haven't heard the Indian and arrow saying.  You aren't being cute.

100% agree. Bought one myself and haven’t had to fear the left miss

I've also got one and it is the squarest sitting, least upright hybrid I've ever seen. I understand why a lot of manufacturers make them upright, but in someone who has a relatively sound swing, it is a bit of recipe for pulls and overdraws.

If hybrids had a left issue, nobody on tour would use them.  I'd suggest lessons and figuring out what you're doing when swinging a hybrid that results in a left shot.
