Over time, I’ve also come to recognize these clubs’ flaws.
Some of the issues are very simple.
For example, your standard hybrid is a touch too heavy for golfers with slower swing speeds – as in, golfers over 40 who can’t quite move it like their younger selves.
Conventional hybrids also tend to have flatter (more horizontal) lie angles at address.
What’s the problem?
It forces you to swing more around the body, which makes it harder to reach your maximum turn – and shortens your shots.
Some flaws are more complex, like the traditional hybrid’s sole shape. It’s got a pronounced curvature, which might help a little in thick rough – but it actually makes the club harder to aim.
Didn’t know that, did you?
Most golfers don’t.Likewise, you’ve probably come to accept so-so performance from the hybrids you’ve been playing. So you shrug off lousy results, such as:
… Low bullets that miss the green by a mile.
… “Army golf” inconsistency in your shot pattern. You know, the ol’ “left-right-left.”
… Less-than-expected distance when you think you’ve really smoked one.
I know, it’s frustrating. I’ve seen all this and more from my students – and the older the golfer, the worse their hybrid misses tend to be.
Now for the good news:
With the help of acclaimed club designer Josh Boggs, my team and I created a hybrid that fixes all the faults of conventional models.
That makes it the FIRST hybrid built to boost the performance of golfers over 40.
How the heck did we do it?
Simple. We just considered the needs of mid- to high-handicap golfers who’ve lost a little swing speed – instead of young bucks or guys who play for a living – and voila!
