Golf Tips #11 07-07-13

IN THIS WEEKS GOLF HEADQUARTER'S GOLF TIPS SEGMENT CLUB PRO MIKE CROSSER TALKS WITH HORACE BROWN ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NEW HYBRID GOLF CLUBS AND THE OLD FASHION IRONS.
(Mike)  Okay so now days again we use to have a three iron and a five iron which was all you could have for distance control.  Okay you would hit it farther the less number of course you would hit it further.  So there's not much loft to it it's got a little bit of a back weight.  Well then they decided so now they're going to go with a hybrid which is kind of a half of a wood.  It has more weight to it and has the same loft it's easier to get the ball up and down on it.  It's the same length as and iron so you treat it the same way.  One thing nice about the hybrid I'm from Montana and if hit a shot in the winter time in Montana it stings your hands.  So now it does not do it if you have a hybrid cause you have all that weight on the bottom.  And we play winter golf in Montana for almost six months.  So your hands are stung all the time.  So if you hit a thin shot you know it.  If you hit a thin shot with this you don't know it.  We go all the way from a three hybrid to a four hybrid to you can buy hybrids all the way down to an eight hybrid if you want to.  And for a lot of the senior guys it's just easier to swing.  They're graphite shafts.  You have all that heavy bottom weight and you don't have to hit an iron anymore.  And they're just and actually they're a little more precise as far as how you hit them and you don't have to swing as hard.  So that is kind of new technology again.
