Step 2: Be an Athlete
Stay as relaxed as possible as you address the ball, with a feeling that your muscles are "alive" and ready to move you in any direction. Position the ball inside your left heel. (You'll have trouble if you use the more forward ball position of a fairway wood.) Hybrids play like irons, and that's how you should swing them. Make sure that your head is behind the ball and that your knees are directly above your shoelaces.
