Hybrids/ woods what combo???

Going to be upgrading from my 910 d2 to the 913. Will be making the 3 hr trip for a titleist figuring center. I just really started playing a lot of golf last season , so I played a 3 wood, a 2 hybrid. Any thoughts or suggestions on what mix to get ? I'm  not sure I would need a 3 and a 5 wood just don't see the diff compared to the money for both of those clubs. So any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Jason 

The guys at the fitting center will be able to help you out more than we will be able too.  I used to play a 910F 15* and a 19* and a swoosh 24*.  I didn't notice much between the 15* and 19* so I changed the loft to 16.5*  and got rid of the 19*.  From there I'm going to add a 21* hybrid, but not until I get my new driver.  In the end it comes down to whatever works best for you, and those guys will do just that for you.  Best of luck with your fitting!

I'am doing a fitting in April with my Local coarse PGA Pro/teacher.

 

I have same issue 19 degree 5 Wood vs a 19 Degree Hybrid

I carry 4 wedges so I need to make a choice. I have a 4 Hybrid - 23 Degrees in my bag

So the distance gap between club lofts should be OK given the fact I hit a 15 degree 3 wood.

 

 

 

 

 

Hi Jason,

I too have the 910F 3 Wood 15° and 910H 17° which has served me well and are a good fit for my game. From my experience the 910H 17° is a very versatile club that can be played from all types of lies.

I was also contemplating about getting rid of the 910H 17 ° and putting in a 5 wood but I really like the performance of the hybrid better.  Thinking about getting a 910H 19° as well.

But if I had a chance to get fit...lucky you, I would definitely get fit to see all your options and how each club fits your game.


Best of luck!! 



Thanks for the info fellas , will all be useful when I go for the fitting !!

I'm one of of the odd-balls on this forum. I found out quickly in 2006 that I fare better with a 7 wood vs a 3 iron hybrid.  The best I've gotten out of a 20 hybrid is 185 yards; the best out of a 7 wood is 225.  I also know how to work a 7 wood pretty well.  I carried a lofted wood (such as a 9 or 11 wood) up until 2011 because I had a hard time with anything above a 25* hybrid (when I went to the 910H is when I finally started hitting a 21 hybrid reasonably well).  

I have my 910F 19* fairway set up for a shaft length of 41* and the Surefit setting is A3 (20.5*).  I can hit 200 yards with it when I get into it.   My 21 hybrid is good for 170-175.

For me, the 5 wood has that "knock the snot out of it" feeling that you don't get from a 19 or 21 hybrid.  

I do hit a 27 hybrid very well.

What I'm saying is don't get caught in the hybrid hype and try them alongside each other.  Using a 17-21 hybrid vs a 4 wood thru 7 wood is a matter of personal preference.

Do an alongside comparison between the 19 hybrid vs the 19 fairway.   Also think about a 21 fairway because it will get about 10-15 yards more than a 23 hybrid.

May also think about the combo of 17 and 21 fairways.

While looking for a club to fit the gap between my 3 wood and my 3 iron, I started testing a 19 degree 913H. This is the most ridiculous club I have ever hit. 260 and perfect flight, and this is off the deck. My 3 iron takes me 225. I may end up just using this to replace my 3 wood because I have trouble decking it consistently. I want to get this club in my bag before the start of the spring college season, as I will be graduating after.

Thank you all

Since I will have the availability to play a round of golf  or two with my Club selections .

I'm going to experiment with a 4 &  7 wood when I get fitted.

Good choice Bob. I've always had trouble getting my 3&5 woods up in the air, so I switched to a 4&7 woods and just the small amout of loft in the 4&7 woods (4-17* and 7- 22*) made all the differance in the world. They are much easier for me to get up off the ground, and I hit my 4 wood off the Tee almost as far as my driver, and it's much more dependable for a straight shot. On short par 4's I'll use my 4 wood off the tee, and on days when my driver just isn't working for me, I'll switch to my 4 wood. It won't go quite as far as my driver, but it will stay in the fairway. Also, my 7 wood is usually longer than a 5 wood for me since I can get it up in the air better, and it always lands softer than a 5 wood. Try the 4 and 7 woods, Bob, I think you'll really like them.

My dad even mentioned 6 years ago that a 4 wood and 7 wood is a better combo than 3 and 5 because it also allows room for 4 wedges.    I played a 975F 16.5 and 20.5 for 3 years.   I also played a TM Burner 7 wood for all of 2011 and until May of 2012 and I found there was little difference between it and an 18* 5 wood.   I hit my 910F 19* (which is set at 20.5*) just as far as I did my 975F 16.5.   One can't beat a 21* fairway wood for approach shots and hitting greens on 180-200 yard par 3s.  Also, the length of most 7 woods (41 - 41.5") is ideal and they are very workable clubs.  I don't carry a 3 or 4 wood these days because my driver is 13* loft

I've been a 7 wood fanatic since 2006.  I played with a 2nd generation Trimetal with a steel shaft before I got the 975Fs and I just about never missed with it. 

Hi Jason, Good luck with the fitting, I am in the process of doing the same thing. I am playing with a 910fd set at 14.25, a 910f set at 17.75, a 909h 19 and a 909h24, but this makes me leave out a wedge. So I leave the 5 wood 215 yards or 3 hybrid 200 yards behind and have a big gap. Looking at a new 21 or 24 913hybrid and resetting the 910f to 18.5, going in for a tune up lesson and fitting to find the best set up, hope you find yours. Try the 913f 15 you can take down to 13.5 or up to 16.5 just watch your gaps.

Just another disciple of the 4W/7W crowd.  A 3W is a great tool, if you can go for a green on your second on a 550 yard par 5.  If you are more mere mortal, then filling the distance gaps with clubs you are conisstend and comfortable will help you more.  I can hammer my 24 H and my 21 F.  Previously I tried a 19 H from 3 companies and never felt good with it.  I do use 4 wedges and I can hit my longest par 4s with the 21 F and driver, and I'll not hit a par 5 in 2, so my bag fits my game.

My friend was cleaning house and I got some clubs from him (a set of 755 forged irons 3-PW but missing the 4 and 7 and a Callie SH III 9 wood).  I took the 9 wood to the park Sat AM and it brought back memories of when I carried one.  It does exactly what I want with a great degree of consistency:  hit a 170 shot and drop it on the spot.  It fills the gap between my 910F 19* and 910H 27* (what I was doing for quite a long time to hit that particular shot was choking down on a 7 wood or th 19H).  Didn't find much added value in carrying a 24H because there was only 5 yards diff between it and the 27 (which I just whack the daylights out of).  I can hit a 21H 170 yards but not with a great degree of consistency.  This led to a post saying it would be nice if Titleist made a 24 fairway (41" shaft and 59* standard lie angle). The bottom line is the 21H is HISTORY. 

The last time I was capable of reaching a par 5 in 2 was 1988 (I hit a 290 yard drive and had 170 to the green, hooked my 2nd shot with a 6 iron, flubbed my approach and 3 putted for a bogey). The best I have done recenty is a driver, 7 wood and 9 iron on a 564 yard par 5.

For me, the combo of driver-5W-9W and 5H is a proven winner as is 7W-5H (just have to do some choke shots with the 7).
