Should you put a hybrid in your bag?

We like to think we know a thing or two about golf, which is why we’re always banging the drum for custom-fitted golf clubs. It really does make such a radical difference. And yet, when golfers do get fitted, the tendency is to get the perfect driver set-up, get the irons dialled-in and maybe even take care of the wedges. But how many people forget about the poor old hybrids? Spoiler: it's too many!

Cleveland Launcher XL Hybrids

We’re talking about a club that’s in almost every golfer’s bag and is considered by many players to be the ‘safety club’; something to fall back on in a sticky situation or a crisis of confidence. Surely, if there’s one club you want to be exactly right, it’s the safety net!

Let’s take Cleveland’s new Launcher XL Halo hybrids as an example. These hybrids are fantastic, with a Rebound Frame delivering the speed and, as a result, distance you desire. Add in Gliderails on the sole – helping you glide through the turf smoothly - and you can maintain this performance from tight lies, thick rough and even bunkers.

However, there are still plenty of questions. If you’re putting one in the bag, which one? Or maybe it should be more than one, but how many? But, fortunately, we’re here to help you find the answers. If you want to put Cleveland’s new Launcher XL Halo models into your bag (and you should, if you want to develop your game) then come and see us in the pro shop. We'll be happy to help.
