Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches

PGA National (Champion Course)



Why We Like It

Hybrids need more than a thin face to generate ball speed. These hybrids have a variable-thickness face, but the main source of power is how the body contributes to that flexibility. Alternating the stiffness and flexibility of the surrounding regions in the body allows the face to become a more efficient conduit for power. Srixon’s team achieves a lower and deeper center of gravity through thicker sole sections for a higher launch and more spin to help shots stick the landing on the green.

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.
