Hybrid from the Rough

hybridTry using your hybrid from the rough.  Many times you will face medium-length approach shots of 150-175 yards from the rough to the green.  For most golfers, it is difficult to get enough power to hit an iron through the heavy grass to get the ball up and out and carry a good distance.  Hybrid clubs offer greater versatility for these shots.  The hybrids tend to glide through the grass and not get stuck as the irons do.  Learn to choke down on the handle and use less speed in the swing to get the proper distance that you need.  You will find that getting out of the rough and getting distance will become a lot easier.
