There is confusion as to distances for hybrid clubs compared to irons with the same number. Several factors need to be considered to get a fair comparison.

Assembly Lengths

Hybrids generally have ½ to 1-inch greater assembly lengths than irons with the same numbers.

Assembly Length and Distance

The shorter the assembly length, the less distance a club provides.


The loft will help determine the distance of ball travel. The greater the loft, the longer distance will generally be.

Hybrid Loft Versus Iron Loft

Hybrids often will have a greater loft than irons with a corresponding number.

Hybrid Distance Versus Irons

If the hybrid has greater assembly length and/or loft, this will generally result in greater distance than the corresponding iron.
