I have a 3- and a 4-hybrid and simply have not figured out to hit this club from a good fairway lie.  Can you help me? Keith H., Ogden, Utah   

Hey Mr. H,A hybrid is just that -– a combination of an iron and a wood. But not all hybrids are the same. Some are more like irons with flat faces while others have some bulge and roll on the face. Some have fade built in, while others have a bias for the draw. The length of the shaft is shorter than a wood but longer [by a half-inch to one-inch] than a long iron.

Dear T.J.,Last week I was on the first tee and I didn't have a glove in my bag. I'm a big Freddie Couples fan so I decided to play without one, like Freddie does. I thought I got a better feel of the club. So why do people wear a golf glove? Is this some sort of FootJoy conspiracy?Eric K., Sacramento, Calif.
