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

When we’re managing the course, we don’t want our hybrids going as far the driver, but Cobra has designed its Radspeed hybrids with hollow split rails and a forged face insert to ensure you’ll never be too far from the green. And then there’s the luxury of the high, forgiving launch provided by radial weighting - a wonderful addition.

With all this talk of finding fairways, we want hybrids we can rely on for hitting the right shot time after time. That’s why the consistency of the ONE-Length Radspeed hybrids might benefit you massively for course management. Have you ever tried it?
