HOW DO YOU PLAY BETWEEN GOLF CLUBS?
By changing your setup, you can get a lot of mileage from a single club. Top Professional Lydia Ko describes how to get three clubs out of one - in this example, her 5-hybrid. She shows you three different ways to hit your 5-hybrid for three distinct distances. The first is for her maximum length using her regular grip and full swing. Next, she chokes down about 2 inches, and this will take off approximately 8 yards. And finally, she will choke down nearly to the bottom of her grip to shave off another 10 yards.
Sometimes it's challenging to figure out which clubs to carry in your bag. You know you want to have all those specialty wedges, and what will you do with that 2 iron anyway? You can usually get three different distances out of a single club by simply changing your setup.
