Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches

PGA National (Champion Course)



Why We Like It

This hybrid may look more like a fairway wood, but after Titleist engineers studied the potential market for a lightweight hybrid, they found that bigger is better. The wide sole is easier on the typical sweeping strokes made by players at this level, but more importantly this big-body hybrid provides stability on those all-too-common off-center strikes. The screw weight in back builds in dynamic loft to help shots start on a high-flying trajectory. A tip-flexible, shorter fairway-wood shaft provides high launch, and the overall lighter club weight instills control.

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.
