Best Hybrid Golf Clubs for Women

Best Hybrid Golf Clubs for Women – A hybrid is an essential golf club in a ladies’ golf bag. Without a hybrid, you are missing a piece of equipment that can save you from the rough and get you back into play.

You are also missing a go-to club that can put you on the green from a yardage you could never reach with an individual iron.

Hybrids have changed the game of golf and have golfers everywhere, getting the ball in the hole much faster than ever before.

In this review, we took some of the best women’s hybrid golf clubs that we could find and broke them down for you to help you decide if they are the correct choice for you.

ROUND UP

1.Callaway Golf

Very much like the TaylorMade M6, the Callaway Rogue women’s hybrid comes in the 4H, 5H, 6H, and 7H. The Rogue focuses on ball speed and distance and utilizes some technology that has never been used in hybrids to date.

Jailbreak technology is a new concept for Callaway, and it has been used in woods but not yet in hybrids, until the release of the Rogue.

The Jailbreak technology creates a spring-like effect off the clubface of this hybrid. If you feel as though your current hybrid leaves a little distance behind, the Rogue will be a much different feeling.

The Rogue comes with the Adila Quaranta 40gram graphite shaft. This is the perfect weight for a hybrid golf club.

The sweet spot on the Rogue hybrid is huge and features the Face Cup technology to help with forgiveness.

If you struggle with getting longer irons or fairway wood to have the correct launch angle, then you will enjoy the Rogue and its ability to promote higher and longer shots.

Pros & Cons



2.Cobra Golf F Max

Cobra was one of the first brands to offer a utility club which is now referred to as a hybrid golf club. They are still at the forefront of hybrid technology and innovation with golf clubs today.

This particular Cobra F-Max Ladies Hybrid Golf Club helps golfers with moderate to slower swing speeds by designing the shaft to be lighter and easier to handle.

It is especially good for any golfers that might have a hard time hitting fairway woods.

The offset design also helps golfers that may slice or fade the ball and want a club to help straighten out some of their shots.

These Cobra hybrids produce a nice high ball flight to help with softer landings on the approach shots to the green.

Pros & Cons



3.Xxio Ladies Eleven

XXIO is a brand that specifically designs clubs for women with a slower swing speed and who need an ultralight golf club.

This XXIO Ladies Hybrid Golf Club is one of the lighter hybrids offered today.

The ultralightweight golf club helps provide more flexibility in the club which can add more distance and speed to your swing and ball.

The weighting of the clubhead also helps produce a smoother swing for ease and efficiency.

And the Cup Face design helps with forgiveness for mishits and off center shots.

Pros & Cons



4.TaylorMade Golf M6

The best women’s hybrid on the market is the TaylorMade Ladies M6 Hybrid. This is a club that was released in 2019, and it is still sitting at the top of the chart.

The M6 has the revolutionary twist face technology. This technology allows you to have so much stability at impact. If you ever feel as though the club turns a bit when you make contact, you will notice a huge difference with the M6.

In addition to the incredible forgiveness, the M6 also has a very low center of gravity to promote a higher ball flight. The speed pocket technology helps women golfers get a ton of extra distance with this club.

If you are looking for a great mix of forgiveness and distance, the M6 really can provide that. The club is available in the 4H, 5H, 6H, and 7H.

If you end up having some success with this women’s hybrid, you can add quite a few of them to your golf bag.

Pros & Cons



5.Cobra King F8

The Women’s Cobra F8 Hybrid is undoubtedly not a new release; however, this is a great golf club to consider if you are looking for a women’s hybrid that has a ton of forgiveness.

The F8 is a very easy to hit golf club with a lower center of gravity. You will find that this is a smaller clubhead than the more modern options, but it is a golf hybrid club that looks like a true hybrid.

A golfer should remember that a hybrid was designed to be a cross between fairway woods and irons. As time goes on, the hybrid golf club tends to look more and more like the fairway woods.

The F8 is available in the 4H, 5H, 6H, and 7H. When we say that this is the best cheap golf hybrid, it is only because this hybrid golf club has dropped in price since it was released.

There is nothing cheap about the performance or the quality of this club, and it will likely earn a spot in your golf bag for years to come.

Pros & Cons



Best Ladies Hybrid Golf Clubs Buyers Guide

Now that you know the best ladies hybrid golf clubs on the market, you will have to narrow down which one is right for you. That can be easier said than down.

We have a few tips that will help you choose the golf clubs that are specifically designed for your golf game.

Shaft

Luckily most women’s golf hybrid clubs come with a standard or stock graphite shaft. You will not want a hybrid golf club that does not have a graphite shaft in it.

These clubs should be light and easy to help you launch the golf ball. Most of the graphite shafts will weigh around 40grams.

Loft

Most women’s hybrid golf clubs are offered in the 4H, 5H, 6H, and sometimes the 7H. These clubs will replace the irons that have the same lofts. The thing that can confuse many players is that the 7H seems to go much further than a seven iron.

This is a common problem and something that many golfers will run into. The fact of the matter is a women’s hybrid golf club is easier to hit than a seven iron. Since it is easier and has a larger sweet spot, most golfers will have more confidence when it comes to hitting the ball.

If you end up with a 7H and a 7ion in your golf bag, that is entirely acceptable.

Forgiveness

If you want to make sure you get a women’s hybrid that is forgiving, you must choose something with a low center of gravity. When the center is low, and in the back, it will help you launch the ball into the air even if your swing speed is on the lower side.

Distance

If you are a woman golfer that lacks distance in her game, you are not alone. Women golfers do not have swing speeds that are nearly as high as the male golfer. This is just a fact of nature and means nothing when it comes to the actual quality of a person’s golf game.

The main things you will want to look for if you need more distance are a very hot club face that has a spring-like effect. A clubface like the Rogue with the Jailbreak bars is something that will help the ball fly off the club head.

Another distance-enhancing technology is anything that talks about speed. Clubhead speed and ball speeds are huge factors when it comes to distance. If you choose a hybrid that was developed in the last three to four years, you will automatically be getting plenty of distance-enhancing technology.

Pricing

You should expect to pay between $120-$300 for a hybrid golf club. Women’s hybrids are priced the same as men’s hybrids, and they usually start quite high and then reduce in price over a year or so.

Hybrid golf clubs are more expensive than individual irons but often not as high priced as fairway woods.

Loft angle

The biggest difference among various hybrid golf clubs for women occurs in the loft angle on the club face. A golf club with a sharper loft angle causes the ball to fly higher with a shorter distance, allowing for a greater level of accuracy. A hybrid club with a flatter loft angle has a lower trajectory for greater distance but with the potential for less accuracy.

Hybrid clubs use a numbering system to differentiate them from each other. As a general rule, you use the hybrid golf club to replace a long iron, so the loft angle on the hybrid is similar to what you’d find with a long iron. A 2-hybrid club and a 2-iron both have about a 15-degree loft angle, as does a 3-wood. A 4-hybrid and a 4-iron both have about a 21-degree loft angle, as does a 6-wood.

Long irons, like a 3- or 4-iron, can be difficult for beginners to hit accurately, so these players may prefer the more forgiving club face on the hybrid club for long approach shots to the green. Manufacturers move the center of gravity on the hybrid club farther back than where it is in a hybrid club, which helps make the hybrid easier to hit accurately.

Weight

Hybrid club heads typically have slight weight variances among different brands, and they’re lighter than a long iron or a fairway wood. This means you may gain a little bit of distance from a lighter hybrid by generating a greater club head speed with your swing.

Materials

The club head in the hybrid should consist of either stainless steel or titanium. Stainless steel appears more commonly and costs less than titanium, but titanium is lighter.

Club face technology

If you want to generate a little more speed at the time of contact with the ball, some hybrid club faces have a bounce back design that should generate a bit more distance for you.

Center of Gravity

With hybrids, the CG should be located lower and toward the back. Women, most of them at least, are then able to launch the golf ball higher into the air more easily. The perfect solution for those with a slower swing speed as well.

Clubhead

As for the material of the clubhead, what works best on hybrids for women is titanium. No doubt, titanium is more lightweight than stainless steel, thus better suited for producing additional clubhead speed. But it’s stainless steel that’s more affordable and durable.

Moving on to the clubhead sole, a wide and flat design keeps from digging into the turf, no matter the lie. Only a flat sole moves the golf club effectively, even through tall, thick grass.

Clubface

Clubface technologies make it easier for female golfers to generate additional ball speed. For example, TaylorMade’s revolutionary Twist Face curvature. It corrects the face angle for reducing side spin. So you can achieve straighter shots even on mis-hits.

Women’s vs. men’s

The women’s hybrid club is slightly lighter with a slightly shorter shaft than a men’s hybrid club. Taller women may want to use a men’s hybrid club.

What is a Hybrid Golf Club?

A hybrid golf club is a cross between a fairway wood and an iron.

There is something about the design of the hybrid golf clubs that I love. They help me get the ball nice and high in the air and I am able to connect solidly with them.

Some use hybrids to get out of the rough. Some use them as a replacement for their hard to hit 3 wood especially off the fairway.

They are designed to be more forgiving and easier to hit and provide a higher trajectory.

And yes, even professional Tour players have them in their bag.

So, let me answer of the most common questions about the hybrid golf club.

Hybrid Golf Clubs Explained

First of all, what is the difference between a hybrid, a rescue and a utility club?

Nothing really. They are all pretty much the same. It’s a matter of marketing but also how the hybrid golf club was first introduced.

The hybrid club was first called a “utility” club and was introduced 50 years ago or so.

It didn’t really take off until the 2000’s and at that time TaylorMade came out with their own version called a “rescue” club (and still uses the term today in their product lines).

This was about the time that these hybrid clubs started to become more and more popular as many golfers were finding great success hitting them.

The first time I used one, it was called the Baffler by Cobra and it was among the clubs in my mother-in-law’s golf set she gave me.

Once I started using this rescue club as she called it at the time, it became my favorite club in the bag. (I still have it!)

fun quick read here on the first utility golf clubs that came on the scene – the Baffler versus the Ginty.

What is the Advantage of Hybrid Golf Clubs?

Another question might be “Are hybrid golf clubs worth it?”

The purpose of hybrid golf clubs when they first came on the scene was to help you get out of trouble, where you had to hit out of thick rough, fescue, and tight lies.

Thus the name utility and rescue golf clubs.

So yes, that reason alone provides an advantage to using hybrids on the golf course.

Today’s technology has created an even more advantageous modern golf club that provides more than just getting you out of trouble spots.

Many golfers use these hybrids to replace some of their harder to hit golf clubs like long irons and fairway woods.

I struggle with my 3 wood, so I tend to use a 4 hybrid now as a replacement because I can get it higher into the air and for me it is much easier to hit solidly.

The advantage of using these new hybrids is that they are designed to be much easier to hit off the fairway and in the rough. I know many golfers that also use these rescue clubs in fairway bunkers as they provide the distance needed with a bit more loft to get out of the sand trap.

Definitely worth it to carry at least one hybrid in the golf bag!

What Hybrids Should I Carry?

These days you can find hybrids from 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 which pretty much correlate to irons.

You could essentially replace all your irons with hybrids.

However, most golfers carry one or two hybrids in their bag.

If you are using them to replace your longer irons (2, 3, or 4) or fairway woods, you can use a 3 or 4 hybrid.

Just know that with the higher trajectory when using a utility club, the ball won’t roll as much so the distance may be less than one of the long irons or fairway woods it is replacing.

If you just want a club to help you get out of trouble areas, a 5 or 6 hybrid is great to have.

As I have gotten older, I seem to be replacing more and more irons in my bag for hybrids. I now carry a 4, 5, 6, and 7 hybrid. The only irons I carry are an 8 and 9.

What Hybrid Lofts Should I Use?

Different golf brands and manufacturers use various lofts or degrees for their hybrids. Just like any other clubs like irons and fairway woods.

The higher the loft or degree, the higher the ball flight will be and the easier it is to hit the ball.

Here is a very general listing of how loft or degrees correlate to the numbered hybrid golf clubs, but please keep in mind that every brand is different and can vary pretty widely.

The hybrid, also known as a utility or rescue club, is one of the most invaluable golf clubs a lady golfer can carry in her bag. The very fact that this clever club is known by so many different names illustrates its versatility. From recovering from the rough to taking on a tight tee shot, sending a ball soaring high and landing softly into a long par three, or even as a handy tool to play a little chip-and-run around the greens, there’s no end to the shot-making creativity of the best ladies’ hybrid golf clubs.

Hybrids are not just for beginner or intermediate golfers, either. Hybrids are a firm favourite on tour because they are incredibly forgiving and easy to use. In fact, many world-class lady professional golfers carry a full complement of hybrids instead of harder-to-hit long irons. Many women choose to use hybrid clubs instead of 4-, 5-, 6- and 7-irons.

A hybrid is such an important club in the bag of a female golfer. Hybrids become the go-to club for approach shots to the green, par-three tee shots, and almost anything that winds up in the rough.

Having a great hybrid in the golf bag can really help to lower scores and make the game much more enjoyable. Here are the top ten best hybrids for ladies in 2022.

What Hybrids Should I Carry?

Hybrids also exist from 3 all the way to 9, just like irons. But most golfers carry one or two hybrids only. Because, more often than not, hybrids are used as long-iron alternatives since the latter is very difficult to hit. In that case, carry either a 3 or 4 hybrid.

But if your main concern is getting out of sticky situations, then choose a 5 or 6 hybrid.

Then some senior golfers prefer replacing as many irons as possible with hybrids. So they end up carrying only their 8-iron and 9-iron.

Should Women Golfers Play with Hybrid Irons?

If your set of golf irons doesn’t seem easier to hit at all, consider the possibility of switching to hybrid irons altogether. The only problem with such hybrid sets – you may require some practice and time to grow accustomed to shorter irons.

Getting used to the performance and feel of hybrid irons, particularly around greens, is slightly difficult. So don’t forget to carry your wedges in the golf bag.

If you spend a whole day or week at the golf course asking around women golfers what is their most favorite golf club, the answer would be the same in maybe 8-9 out 10 cases. And that places the best women’s hybrid golf clubs at a priority level.

Hybrids have indeed changed the way most female golfers play the game. That’s because the majority of the golfing population, in general, find it very difficult to hit long irons. And for those with a slower swing speed, the task at hand becomes even more challenging.

At such times, a hybrid can do wonders when it comes to producing powerful, high-lofted shots from all types of lies. So if this is something you’ve been looking to achieve, then it’s time you get to know the following picks.

Hybrids are not a new addition to the world of golf clubs. They have been a part of the golf game for a long time now. But it’s only the last decade that has witnessed this utility golf club going from just an invention to a popularly used and often praised long-iron replacement.

And more and more women golfers are taking to hybrids in order to launch the ball more easily from any lie. But not all are created equally of course. So you have to narrow down the search based on your gender, swing speed, and other golfing skills and personal preferences.
