Valley Today Golf Lessons: How to Hit Hybrids

Posted: Updated:
It might be the biggest revolution in golf club design in the last 10 years, the hybrid.

The hybrid has a funny look, not really a wood, not really an iron, but it's quickly become one of the most popular clubs for pros and duffers alike.

In this week's Valley Today Golf Lesson head pro Lisa Schwinden from Osgood Golf Course in Fargo shows us the right way to hit a hybrid.

A hybrid is a cross between a long iron and a fairway wood.  Club manufacturers figured out if they make the bottom of the club wider they can bring the center of gravity of the club down.  And the way you get the ball up in the air is to get the center of gravity of the club underneath the center of gravity of the ball.

Schwinden says the key to hitting a hybrid is to hit it like an iron.  That means you want to hit the ball on the downswing instead of the upswing.  Hit the ball first and then a little bit of grass and that's what's going to get the ball up in the air.

Lisa and the other pros at Osgood offer variety of lessons for every level of golfer.  For more information click here.
