Disabled Golf: Hybrids Might Help Your Game

Do you have at least one or two hybrid clubs in your bag? Have you ever tried hitting hybrid irons to improve your game? Well depending on your amputation, disability or limitations you may find these clubs can improve your score and enjoyment on the golf course.

Over the past ten to fifteen years hybrid golf clubs have moved from an oddity to a must have for many golfers, even the pros play with them. If the pros are using them there must be a good reason right? The reason is they help improve their game.Hybrids are easy to hit, they produce a high ball flight, land softly and you can hit them out of the rough. In essence they are a fits all utility club and you should have at least one or two in your bag.

Disabled golfers will find hybrids a great replacement for your 3, 4, or 5 irons. In some cases a disabled golfer may want to try a full set of hybrid irons. In general for a high handicapper or disabled golfer these clubs are easier to hit and give you better control. They can limit your ability to hit a draw or a fade which in the case of a high handicapper is a good thing. I have a golf buddy that I play with occasionally who has a full set of hybrids 9 iron thru 4 iron and he loves them.

What makes hybrids so easy to hit? The answer is really simple. Most hybrids use a carbon fiber or composite shaft and the club head and face are designed to give you the most trampoline effect when you strike the ball. This is accomplished by using perimeter weighting and making the face very thin.They are designed with a large sweet spot to help the average golfer make solid contact with the ball. In addition to this the weight difference between a steel shafted 4 iron and the hybrid replacement is 20%. That can be a huge difference in club head speed especially if you are trying to overcome a amputation or other disability.

If you are a disabled golfer considering the purchase of a new set of clubs I urge you to at least hit some hybrid clubs. Most golf shops and golf courses have demo clubs that you can borrow for a round to see how they work for you. As with any club purchase make sure you get the clubs fitted to your swing. Make sure the shaft flex is matched to your club head speed. Even if it turns out that you need a women’s shaft you will play better and enjoy the game more with clubs fitted to your abilities and your game.

Most club manufacturers make hybrids, so you have a variety of designs to choose from. Some of the top rated hybrid clubs made today are produced by Adams, Callaway, Ping, TaylorMade and Titleist. If you would like one on one help with your next club purchase leave me a comment below. I would be happy to help.
