Hybrids are your tweener clubs, the help you hit shots in the distances that fall between your fairway woods and your long irons. Some brands call their hybrids, rescues. That's because they are suited to hit long distances from the rough when a fairway wood might be too long to feel like you could make solid contact on the face or when an iron might bite too hard into the turf when you attempt to strike the ball. Enter the hybrid, it's manageable enough to hit the ball out of the long stuff and still make the ball go a long way.
