November 5 Grand Lake Golf Report
Hitting the hybrid
1. The ball position for a hybrid is slightly forward of its equivalent iron –stance
will be slightly wider (about 1/2 to 1 inch) because the hybrid is typically about
1/2 inch to 1 inch longer than its equivalent iron.
2. You will stand slightly further away from the ball with the hybrid in
comparison to its equivalent iron (again about 1/2 to 1 inch). Again – because
the hybrid is typically 1/2 to 1 inch longer.
3. 3. You MUST hit down (create a divot, or at least bruise the grass) with the
hybrid. This is the problem with most golfers who do not hit hybrids well. They
“sweep” the ball with the hybrid and hit the middle/equator, or higher, of the
golf ball. Remember as stated above, the center of gravity of hybrids is low,
that needs to go UNDER the ball – not into the ball. If you do not hit down on
the ball and create a divot, you will be putting “over spin” on the golf ball and it
will not fly properly, will not reach its optimal height and you will lose significant
distance and spin on the ball.

An American went to Scotland and played golf with a newly acquainted
After a bad tee shot, he played a "Mulligan" which was an extremely good one.
He then asked the Scottish, "What do you call a Mulligan in Scotland?"
"We call it 3."
