ClubTest 2015: Titleist 915H and 915Hd Hybrids

On the Range: Titleist 915Hd Hybrids
ClubTesters talk about one of their favorite new clubs of the year, the Titleist 915Hd hybrid.

Titleist 915H and 915dH Hybrids

 

Category: Better-Player Hybrids
Price: $250
WE TESTED:
915H 21° (adjusts 20.25° to 22.5°) with Mitsubishi Diamana M+ Red 60 graphite shaft; 915Hd 20.5° (adjusts 19.75° to 22°) with Mitsubishi Diamana D+ White 90 graphite shaft. Both models tested with Aldila Rogue Black 85H and Mitsubishi Diamana S+ Blue 70.
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The 915H is for sweepers, while the smaller-headed, more offset 915Hd suits those with steeper swings.

PROS

 

PLAYABILITY: Top performer in this category; effortless height; working the ball is addictive; shines from all types of lies, especially from rough; the combination of strong playability and an adjustable hosel makes the 915 a winner.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Spot-on accuracy with the 915’s—if you’re dialed in, you know exactly where the ball’s going; plenty of forgiveness packed into these sleek heads; pretty good results on low contact.
DISTANCE: You won’t find yourself coming up short with the 915’s—a few testers picked up as much as 10 extra yards over their current hybrids; consistent lengths, even on minor misses, allow testers to focus their attention on other things.
FEEL: A special feeling when you hit it well; the heavy head is solid and stable during the swing and through tough lies; explosive, springlike sensation on center hits—you may want to spend all day pounding this on the range.
LOOK: An ideal combination of class and pizzazz; sleek and nimble with no surprises at address; testers love the jet-black finish with a subtle metallic touch; the 915 head shape inspires shotmaking.

CONS

 

The 915’s are not quite as forgiving as a few testers would like; one or two guys find the adjustable hosel distracting to look down at.

BOTTOM LINE: The top model tested in the better-player category. The 915H and 915Hd check just about every box the testers look for. You may never want to hit a 3- or 4-iron again after trying these on for size.
