So let’s get to it.

Hybrid Tip #1: Fixing 3 Common Contact Errors

If you’re constantly chunking it or topping it, there are three parts of your swing you want to look at right away:

  1. Ball position – The golf ball should be between the lead ear and lead eye.
  2. Swing direction – You want your lead arm moving straight back and up on the backswing. If you notice it moving low and to the inside, you’ve found your contact killer.
  3. Weight placement – Your weight should shift to the lead foot as you swing down and through. If you keep your weight on the trail foot, the low point of your swing moves farther back in your stance. This means you’re gonna top it.

Watch the video below for an easy checkpoint that will help you make sure the proper weight shift happens every time. It's a tiny detail but it makes a world of difference. 


Hybrid Tip #2: Plugging Power Leaks

Ever feel like you made super solid contact with your hybrid only to watch the ball carry a puny distance? Maybe you hit it straight, but you certainly didn’t hit it far.

The problem might be one of three common power leaks:

  1. You don’t have enough loft on your hybrid.
  2. You’re not getting all your weight going forward as you swing down and through.
  3. You’re not loading your weight onto the trail foot on the backswing.

Watch this video to learn how you can fix these flaws. You’ll also pick up a drill that will ensure you pack your hybrid swing with maximum power. 


Hybrid Tip #3: Hitting It Off the Tee

Hitting a hybrid off the tee is a ton of fun. It’s more accurate than a driver, but you can still count on this club to give you decent distance.

But only if you know how to do it properly.

For one thing, you need to tee the ball a lot lower for a hybrid than you would for a driver. You’re working with a completely different clubface, and teeing it up high is a recipe for disaster.

Second, you want to take your setup with the clubhead slightly elevated, hovering behind the golf ball. This promotes that controlled sweeping motion you’re always going for when you swing your hybrid.

Check out the video to see what I’m talking about.


Pretty effortless adjustments, right? But then, that’s the goal behind everything we do at VLS Golf. Simplicity is the fastest route to success.
