When & why: hybrids

Did you watch last week’s AIG Women’s Open? You won’t find a better example of the importance of course management than Carnoustie, and with the extra roll on firm fairways even great drives can go awry. It might be time to take your hybrids out...

Driver and hybrid
Pulling driver isn't always the smart play

The conundrum

Since hybrids roll out less after landing, you’ve got a much better chance of it staying on the short grass. You want to be giving yourself a look at pars & birdies, rather than straggling to bogeys, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise that a playing from the fairway – rather than a bunker, water or the trees - gives you what you want.


The solution

While you’re not exactly chasing the distance of a driver, you still don’t want to find yourself miles away from the green. That’s where the Rebound Frame and stepped crown of Srixon’s ZX hybrids makes a huge difference; helping you get plenty of distance and a high, forgiving launch to hold any greens.

But, despite all this talk of finding fairway, one key benefit of hybrids is the versatility to hit them off the tee or the deck. The Tour-preferred shape of Srixon ZX hybrids inspires confidence, particularly off the ground when you need it most.
