Mizuno ST-X hybrid

As you watch your wayward drive sail into the light rough, or an unkind iron bounce into the longer grass, it’s easy to start panicking about what you’ll find when you get to your ball. Confidence ebbs away and shoulders slump. But that’s not the case for those golfers who know they’ve got the right hybrids in their bag…

You might’ve heard hybrids sometimes called ‘rescue clubs’, and having a rescue club to get you out of trouble can be just as effective when it comes to saving shots as avoiding trouble in the first place.

That’s where Mizuno’s ST-X 220 hybrids come in. Often times, the biggest issue with trying the Seve-style save is playing from a harsh lie, so Mizuno introduced an Optimised Wave Sole to the hybrids. This provides consistently high, controlled launch low on the face so you can play confidently from tight lies, thick rough and even bunkers.

That comes in hybrids that are already shaped and weighted to give you plenty of forgiveness while delivering powerful strikes from any lie. So, whether you’re playing that heroic recovery or just getting back on track, you’ve got the tools for the job.

While all this clever engineering is great, you can’t always rely on the same club. That’s why Mizuno offers three different options, varying from a 4U to a 6U, in these hybrids.
