HOW DO YOU HIT A HYBRID GOLF CLUB STRAIGHT?
Golf Top 100 Teacher Mark Durland explains a common setup problem he sees with hybrids which causes needless errant shots. Hybrids or the rescue club can present an optical illusion because the club face looks curved. This leads many players to setup with the club face more open than it should be. A simple way to see this is by putting a straight edge, such as an alignment stick on the ground and then use this as a reference for placing the club face square to your intended target line at setup. You might be surprised to see just how much you need to adjust to get the club face square to that straight edge. But once you've done this a few times, this should help you be aware of the needed club face position for square, straight shots. Then your shot execution should most closely resemble an iron shot with a downward angle of attack.
