What GolfWRXers are saying about playing both hybrids and driving irons

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing playing with both hybrids and driving irons. WRXer ‘achappy’ kicks off the thread and is interested in the prospect of playing both, and has reached out to fellow members for their thoughts behind the strategy.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Pepperturbo: “A few years back I tested hybrids, but never put one in the bag, never like the look. I have carried only Driver & 3/4 wd, and either a 1 or 2 iron since taking up the game and currently enjoy 718 T-MB 17′ 2 iron. It could be called a driving iron, but it’s just a 2 iron to me as it’s part of a set; U500 is a driving iron. My buddy, however, has 2 hybrids, 5wd and 3wd and most of the time hits them decently. He does not get along with long irons or a driving iron.”
  • LUXOR54: “I have a P790UDI and then go to a 21° hybrid. Like you said, driving iron is great for off the tee or low punch runners out of the crap. Hybrid is good for getting it up in the air and landing soft. For me, hybrids always go sky high, at least for me a driving iron is more versatile off the tee. High? Low? Stinger? You got it.”
  • MPAndreassi: “This is a great topic and something I talked myself into doing this evening. I’m going to be playing an HMB 3 (19*) and a CLK 4 (22*). The HMB I use for a ton of tee shots, punch outs, etc. and the CLK will replace my 4 iron. Into par 5s, from the rough.”
  • JackpotJohnny: “This is super interesting. I do it a little different I guess. I have an 18deg hybrid I will use occasionally off the tee and 2nd shots into par 5s. Then I have a graphite shafted 21deg DI that I primarily use as a rescue if I need to get out of trouble on par 5s where I know I can’t get there. And also sometimes off the tee.”

Entire Thread: “Hybrids plus driving iron?”

    Hi there,

    Sorry to bother you, but I wanted to ask a quick question. Is there room for improvement when it comes to your site?

    Most sites need edits, tweaks, content, logos, SEO, marketing, branding, etc. and that’s why I am reaching out to you.

    My name is James and I go around the internet and test services and marketplaces to see if they’re legitimate. I then let everyone know about the winners I’ve decided to stick with for my own sites so you don’t have to do the vetting yourself.

    You can see my 2 big winners here: https://webvetted.com

    Go through the sites, find some packages you like, reach out to a few people if you want to buy something, and push your website to be better 🙂

    Thanks,
    James

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.
