When both clubs hybrid or wood hit correctly, wood will give more distance, mainly due to wood is longer. 3 hybrid probably is 39in vs 3w is 43in. Now if u are experiencing some what similar distance then u are not squaring ur wood and get good impact as compare to your hybrid. I tried many 3w and my pro told me a shocking fact. 3w is the toughest club in the bag, not to mention club mfgs are not focusing their development on fairways... just see how snail slow they revolutionize fairway wood. I would suggest start lookibg at 5w for slightly longer distance club than 3hybrid and its more forgiving than a 3w.

Agreed. After trolling the web/magazines, etc for the best advice on wood.. in general the best advice is drop your wood a notch or two.. You get better distance but easier to handle. As you get better than only go to 3 wood.

I've settled on 3 hybrid and ping 4 wood.. The wood is on the deck shot, hybrid is off tee and not so clean lie. Somehow my wood suck on tee ... I tend to make a 'glancing' ground shot so off tee it doesn't hit clean and worst it balloons off!

Tee it low just off the ground. Don't tee up like driver

i am old school and never a true believer in hybrid. but i do give them a shot, i had several hybrids but none stay long enough in the bag.

5W usually is good off the tee and deck. h71y6 is right tee fairway low to avoid skying your shot. ballooning your shot constantly may be bcos your shaft is not fitting to your swing... you have to go get it checked will definitely have nothing to do with fairway or hybrid.

the biggest difference between the 2 besides distance (mainly) and forgiveness (you can argue with this all day long) it would be hybrid is easier to get into the ball when its tug nicely in the thick rough/grass. wood usually will bounce off and top the ball or hit the ball just a few yards in front of you unless you have Tiger's over powering technique swing to cut all the rough while still have enough generated club head speed to contact the ball.

Did anybody here play a more high lofted wood i.e. 7W or 9W ?
Seems much easier to play after trying my friend 9 wood.
