What do you like about a hybrid for you? And how far do you hit it?
Great question for me, individually. Because years, and years, and years as I was growing up, I could never hit a long iron high. I could hit it solid with the best of them. Those old beryllium 2 iron Ping Eye 2s. And I could hit it 250 yards back in the day. It was just bullets. But I could never get a long iron up in the air like the old Jack Nicklaus, right?
These come along--
You and a lot of other people.
There was a lot of us. But when I was going through that period, I was young, I was lean, I wasn't very strong, and I didn't have the knowledge that I have today of how to get the ball up in the air properly at my level. But this has really-- starting in college, I started playing these--
You get more up?
--and I don't have to feel like I'm trying to-- it's not that I'm trying to lift it in the air. But the old irons, I would hang back, and I had so much lag or lean, I couldn't get the club out enough.
Now I could hit down on this thing and it would get up in the air because of all the--
--weighting back here.
But I feel the same with my 5 iron, the hybrid, as I do my 7 iron. My 7 iron swing is about the same as--
How far does this go for you?
This goes 230.
This is a 3 iron. It's about-- it says 20. I think I got it about--
[? --20 ?] and 1/2.
--for us, goes 230, because our 3 wood goes, you know, whatever, 250.
And our 3 iron, we don't like it-- we can't hit our 3 iron like that.
That's right. So this is in between a 5 wood. I have a 5 wood, also, that I use if I have a par five that--
Even more up or a bit further.
--I get a little-- I get 10 more yards in the air, but I get way more height.
Way more height.
This is for a golf course like Cancun where I can just hit a bullet off the tee and I can hit a 230-yard shot to a par three.
This is kind of a mix. To me, it's like hitting a really long 7 iron, but lower, obviously.
So same thing. I get in here. Same setup. Arms hanging. And then I just try to feel this position again.
