Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches

PGA National (Champion Course)



Why We Like It

Like a 320-pound left tackle who knows his way around a three-dimensional torus network, these hybrids might be that ideal combination of size and smarts. Oversize in volume and face area, they take that stability and boost ball speed by alternating the stiff and flexible regions in the front part of the crown. Inside, computer analytics optimized the location and size of weight pads in the sole and perimeter to maximize forgiveness and improve launch. Computer-simulated attack angles of average golfers even determined the degree of taper on the sole rails.

Characteristics

  • Built for players looking to launch the ball higher, the oversize shape and back weighting adds stability on mis-hits.
  • The taper on the sole rails keeps the leading edge closer to the ground across a range of attack angles.
  • Extra weight in the butt end of the grip counterbalances the shaft-clubhead system for easier control.
  • 18, 21, 24, 27, 30 degrees (with fixed hosel)

How To Use Your Hybrid Effectively

Most amateurs don’t swing fast enough to make their long irons go farther than their middle irons, so hybrids are essential for longer shots into greens. Plus, the hybrid’s design adds forgiveness and playability. Here, Cameron McCormick demonstrates how to use these clubs effectively.
