An Unique and Great Hybrid: Ping G15

Article by Cheapgolf

It was immediately obvious after my first trip to the driving range that this hybrid is a real beast. It didn’t seem to matter where on the clubface contact was made, it still launched the ball long and straight.

This is the pick of the G15 bunch for me. It looks a little strange because it has been inspired much more by irons than by woods – which shows Ping are quite prepared to break ranks with the general orthodoxy of hybrid design.

The Ping G15 Hybrid (= is engineered as a high-launching, forgiving alternative to long- and mid-irons. A large internal toe pad expands the perimeter weighting to make it PING’s most forgiving and longest hybrid ever. The unique shape of the stainless steel hybrid features an iron-style face and hosel design.

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 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.

To be completely honest, I wasn’t very comfortable with the long iron replacement at first. Luckily, first impressions don’t equate to the lasting opinion, and this club is proof of that. At address, what seems like a large amount of offset – if you’ll pardon the pun – really threw me off. The irons I play have a very minimal amount of offset, and going from one extreme to the other took a little bit of getting used to.

With that in mind, the feel isn’t much different on a perfectly struck shot than it is on one struck near the toe. This may be a drawback to some, but I don’t think anyone could complain about the performance this club delivers. Therefore, you must buy golf clubs carefully. The ball flight produced by the G15 is piercing and boring, but did get a little high for my liking. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t excessively high, just slightly higher than I normally like.

With minimal wind, it definitely is not an issue. Regardless, I’ve been working on keeping the ball down on command, but this hybrid seemed near impossible to lower even though the Aldila Serrano hybrid shaft is listed as a mid-launch. I suspect you can thank the extremely low CG for this. The Aldila Serrano was a nice surprise. The weighting and flex profile fit me well, and even a near effortless swing still launched the ball high and long.

Though the G15 will not be the most workable club, you can be confident in the fact that it will get you out of any lie without a problem. All in all, my overall experience with the club was great, as it’s very long and very forgiving. I’d undoubtedly recommend it to anyone looking for a great hybrid.
