What Is the Appearance of Ping G15 Hybrid?

Article by Cheapgolf

The PING G-Series are a great option for anyone either new to the game or one who’s looking for an all-around solid club with a good degree of forgiveness. Normally, hybrids fit in great with this demographic, though there are always golfers who want to play long irons over the hybrid counterparts. The Ping G15 might be that perfect blend of iron and hybrid that changes some players’ minds.

The compact shape of the G15 hybrid’s 17-4 stainless steel head is much shorter in length (from face to back) than most other fairway wood-inspired hybrids. Instead, think of this hybrid as being more like a driving iron, similar to the hybrids made popular by Adams. The intention of this design is to make the player set up to hit this hybrid the same way they would with a regular iron.

Looking down at the hybrid at address, the club maintains a clean appearance, though the offset may throw you for a loop. At first glance, you may actually forget that you’re hitting a hybrid, thanks to the compact shape of the black head.

To be completely honest, I wasn’t very comfortable with the long G15 hybrid 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.

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. With that in mind, the feel isn’t much different on a perfectly struck shot than it is on one struck near the toe (which can be both a blessing and a curse, depending on who you ask). This may be a drawback to some, but I don’t think anyone could complain about the performance this club delivers.

Out of the rough, the club was simply outstanding. There was one situation in particular where the hybrid left me very impressed. On a longer par five, I was left with a side-hill lie in some pretty thick rough. When I took my swing, I thought that I had slightly topped the ball, but the G15 shot it out quickly and true to my line. The head really moved well through the thick stuff, and I never once got the feeling that the grass had caught it and opened it up or closed it down.

The ball flight produced by the Ping G15 hybrid 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.

All in all, I was happy with the appearance of the hybrid, as I’m normally partial to any red and black color scheme. The color, along with the flat, uncluttered sole left me very happy with the overall appearance of the club and should please most traditional players.
