The Ben Sayers Benny hybrid features a specially designed groove configuration to increase spin and control from different types of lie. Weight is placed low and deep in the head for added forgiveness.
What a club! Without doubt one of the biggest game improving sticks that I have ever had the opportunity to pick up and use.
Now I am one of the higher handicappers in the Golf Monthly office (21). I have always found hitting long irons a struggle and therefore found long par 4s and par 5s a bit of a struggle.
However, the Ben Sayers Benny hybrid has changed this with the discovery of a club that I can hit with ease and confidence off the fairways. The hybrid has a decent sized head and is really a 7-wood if anything, but it regularly gives me distances of up to 200 yards off the fairway which is simply outstanding for a player of my experience (and lack of talent).
Off the tee it is also very handy for hitting into long par 3s or tight fairways as I find it offers really magnificent control. (Hitting a club straight and long as a high handicapper is always exciting).
It can be found with 19, 22 or 26-degree loft, so you can see which one offers you the best fit for your missing yardage.
Now if I could just get my short game sorted then I might be dangerous!
