A lot of pros play a 5w,including JT and Rory, even though they go higher than hybrids. I think many pros are just concerned about the ball going left.

Itís really UDI or DIR these days. Now we have the GAPR options.  I think itís just a matter of filling the gap with the trajectory your looking for.  For my swing these are my findings with various trials on head type and shaft material and specs.

UDI lower
DIR middle
Hybrid higher

No right answer for everyone, just have to test various set ups and pick the one that gets the trajectory, AOD, and consistency that your looking for. Good luck OP

My current setup is driver, 17.5* 5 wood, 22* hybrid or I switch the hybrid out for my 23* utility iron. I dropped the 3 wood in favour of carrying an extra wedge or even carried both the hybrid and utility. I'd use the other clubs way more than the 3 wood.

You guys must not watch much golf. Hard to find anyone on the Tour that doesn't have at least one hybrid in their bag depending on the course they're playing. Hybrids don't "go left" if they are hit well.

I’m thinking of changing up my wood/hybrid set up. I currently have 16.5* 4 wood, 19* Hybrid (Adams XTD Super Hybrid) , and a 23* hybrid for my 4 iron. This has worked well for me for a while now, but I’m noticing that I’m missing a gap when I play a hole where driver is too much, but my 16.5* wood leaves me too far back.

I just ordered a Bio Cell hybrid that can adjust from 19-22*, and my 4 wood is adjustable from 16-19*. I originally ordered the Bio Cell hybrid to play at 19.5* for windier days, since my current 19* hybrid launches really high. I was thinking of playing the Hybird at 21.5* and the 4 wood at 17.5* or 18.5*. That will cover most of the gaps that my current setup has, and it’ll leave me a spot for a lower lofted 3 wood that I can use from the tee box on tighter holes or some where driver is too much. I’m probably going to find some sort of Cobra 3 wood since I currently have an extra shaft with a fairway adapter that will fit in it.

Personally I dont find myself "needing" a club for that gap. I can hammer my 2 Fli Hi 250 off the tee when the driver is acting up.

If I am more than 240 out on a par 5 I have no business doing anything other than taking my medicine and laying up. The reward simply doesn't come close to the risk.....

I sky hybrids and only hit about 30% of fairway wood shots well. I have just learned to manage around that "weakness" in my game. I need to practice putting a lot more than I need to work on a shot I would use less than 2 times per round.
