Hybrid and Utility golf clubs are the future of golf, and are great for shots when you can't decide between a high-numbered fairway wood and a low-numbered iron. The hybrid club provides a fairway wood's long distance with the iron's familiar swing. They often have special shapes and weights to exert greater control over the golf ball's trajectory and spin. Hybrid irons and hybrid woods help fill the gap between traditional clubs, and provide greater choice when faced with tough shots. These clubs are often referred to as “Rescues” because the TaylorMade Rescue was one of the first clubs to utilize this design.
