When & why: hybrids

Did you watch last week’s AIG Women’s Open? You won’t find a better example of the importance of course management than Carnoustie, and with the extra roll on firm fairways even great drives can go awry. It might be time to take your hybrids out...

Driver and hybrid
Pulling driver isn't always the smart play

The conundrum

Since hybrids roll out less after landing, you’ve got a much better chance of it staying on the short grass. You want to be giving yourself a look at pars & birdies, rather than straggling to bogeys, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise that a playing from the fairway – rather than a bunker, water or the trees - gives you what you want.


The solution

You might not be chasing the same distance as the driver, but you still don’t want to find yourself miles away from the green. That’s why PING has designed its G425 hybrids with Facewrap technology for plenty of distance and a high launch, even on mishits. And let's face it, we're all guilty of those!

Since we’re talking about finding fairways, it’s pretty important to have a club that you can trust. Fortunately, PING’s Spinsistency engineering gives you consistent, predictable spin, roll & distance off the entire face so that you can swing away in confidence.
