Should you put a hybrid in your bag?

We like to think we know a thing or two about golf, which is why we’re always banging the drum for custom-fitted golf clubs. It really does make such a radical difference. And yet, when golfers do get fitted, the tendency is to get the perfect driver set-up, get the irons dialled-in and maybe even take care of the wedges. But how many people forget about the poor old hybrids? Spoiler: it's too many!

We’re talking about a club that’s in almost every golfer’s bag and is considered by many players to be the ‘safety club’; something to fall back on in a sticky situation or a crisis of confidence. Surely, if there’s one club you want to be exactly right, it’s the safety net!

Let’s take Cobra’s new LTDx hybrids as an example. These hybrids are fantastic, with PWR-COR and H.O.T Face technology delivering the speed and, as a result, distance you desire. Add in Baffler rails on the sole – helping you glide through the turf smoothly - and you can maintain this performance from tight lies, thick rough and even bunkers.

However, when we look at the options, we’ve got several different models; each made with a different loft, lie & length. If you’re putting one in the bag, which one? Or maybe it should be more than one, but how many? That’s before we even think about the LTDx One Length option, which is designed to help consistency and has three more models within its range.
