ccording to an April study by the Darrell Survey, 31 percent of golfers have a hybrid club in their bag, compared with 7.5 percent in 2004.
FanNation tells us that 148 hybrid clubs were in use at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am this past February, compared to zero in 1997. While Hybrid’s haven’t become a necessity on the Tour, look for them to continue to grow in popularity as players get more and more used to them.
Some of the players that have put this club to use include: Todd Hamilton, Zach Johnson, Jim Furyk, Retief Goosen, Ernie Els, David Toms Mike Weir, and Tom Watson. Supposedly the clubs are gaining popularity on the LPGA Tour as well.
