But there’s still a case for all handicap golfers to be carrying at least one hybrid . The 3 , 4 and 5 should be hybrids . If you can hit your 7-iron 150-160 yards, think about nothing longer than a 5 iron and look at 3 and 4 hybrids . If you can hit your 7-iron 160-170 yards, think about swapping your 3 -iron for a hybrid .
Hybrids are easier to hit in the center of the clubface, and they fly higher and land softer than your long irons, which helps place and control those important lengthy approach shots. They also are versatile, and can be hit from the rough, for bad lies—even chipping.

5 Wood : Easier to hit off of the tee The size of the 5 wood compared to a 3 hybrid makes it easier to hit off of a tee. This provides an advantage on those shorter, narrow par 4s or longer par 3s where an iron just won’t cut it.
Make sure you hit down hard on the ball like how you would with an iron rather than doing a sweeping action off the ground as with a fairway wood. Consider shortening the shaft length of the club to move the swing weight up. Alternatively, you can try choking down a little on the hybrid .
