The Ping G15 hybrid is the surprise package of the entire G15 range.
We felt that the G10 hybrid was a solid, dependable club for the mid to high handicappers but the look was not exactly stunning. The G15 hybrid is also going to divide opinion on the looks front, but what is different is that Ping have changed tack from creating a ‘wood’ hybrid to creating an ‘iron’ hybrid.
Across the board long irons are being replaced due to the popularity of hybrids so Ping have created a long iron replacement hybrid that looks to us like the built up irons that hybrids started out as before the wood style took over.
Right from the first swing, we really liked G15 hybrid as it really puts a smile on your face. The feel and sound at impact was great and getting the ball out there was effortless from on and off the fairway.
The looks will not be everyone’s cup of tea and the offset is quite large, but this is a club for all golfers and we think even better players will be tempted by the lower lofted versions of the Ping G15 hybrid. And, with five lofts to choose from, we can certainly imagine golfers putting more than one of the G15 hybrids in their bag to replace those hard to hit irons.
A great innovation in the hybrid market from Ping.
