The hybrid has quickly become one of the best clubs for beginner golfers as well as for experienced golfers because it is forgiving, easier to hit, and provides consistent shots. The hybrid is a mix between a fairway wood and an iron which can provide you with long and high ball flights.
We believe every golfer should have at least one hybrid in their bag at all times. But it can be difficult to understand which is the best option for your play style and swing style. In this article, we will review the top 3 hybrids on the market and describe what type of golfer they are best for.
Best Golf Hybrids In 2021
With so many different brands, models, and designs, it can be difficult to pick a hybrid that will work well for you. Below are our favorite hybrids currently on the market that we believe will help to improve your golf game!
1. TaylorMade SIM Max Hybrid
The TaylorMade SIM Max Hybrid has quickly become one of the most popular hybrids on the market. It was completely redesigned this year which now provides a new head design, shaft material, and a new light weight design. This hybrid is known for being great for beginner golfers because of it’s price point, how forgiving it is, and how easy the club is to hit. The SIM Max Hybrid was recently just featured on our Best Golf Clubs roundup review article!
Hybrids are known for being easier to hit consistently compared to irons, but this TaylorMade hybrid is even easier because of the newly redesigned face. This hybrid is available in multiple different lofts which is great for those who prefer a specific loft angle compared to others. If you are a beginner, it could be beneficial to borrow a hybrid from a friend in order to test out a few different loft angles to see what is the best option for you.
This year’s hybrid, the club was designed with a new V Steel and Twist Face Technology that is used to help increase the amount of club head speed you are able to produce. Since the shaft and head are made out of light weight materials, you will be able to produce a fast club head speed and fast ball speeds with this hybrid.
We absolutely love this hybrid and believe it will make a great addition to your bag!
2. Ping G410 Hybrid
The Ping G410 has been utilized for multiple years by beginners, experienced, and even high level golfers because of how balanced the hybrid is. It is known for providing long distance but also still being forgiving and provide a consistent ball flight.
Many hybrids will either be more forgiving or provide more distance. The Ping G410 hybrid is right in the middle where it provides both long distance but is easy to hit consistently because of the beautifully designed club face. The club head isn’t oversized but the club head is designed with new titanium twisted steel technology that is lightweight but also forgiving.
The Ping G410 is perfectly balanced which makes it a great option for those who are looking to add a high quality hybrid into their bag.
3. Callaway MAVRIK Max Hybrid
The Callaway MAVRIK Max Hybrid is known to be one of the most forgiving hybrids on the market. The club head is oversized and larger compared to other hybrids on the market and this provides more consistent and forgiving shots. The large club head has a larger sweet spot and hitting zone compared to other hybrids available.
This forgiving and consistent shot is one of the best things that a beginner golfer or less experienced player can look for. This mean you will be able to hit straight shots more consistently with less slices or swerves. Many beginners struggle to hit it straight consistently which can kill their scorecard.
The club head is weighted in the back of the head which will typically result in higher launch paths compared to other hybrids or irons. This flight pattern is typically easier to hit but won’t fly as far as other hybrids. This is great for higher handicap players as it will provide easier to hit shots that fly straight.
If you are hoping to hit greens or fairways more consistently, then picking up a large hybrid such as the MAVRIK is a great option!
