New PING i15 fairway wood
Golf Monthly Verdict

Looking down on the PING i15 fairway wood at address it's immediately apparent this is a PING club and that will immediately win over a lot of fans. The face is shallower than on the G range, but there is still plenty of confidence-inspiring loft on show. We found it very easy to shape shots – and alter trajectory with this club and it performed especially well from tight lies.

Like the driver, the internal weighting is designed to offer a more penetrating trajectory, less spin and fade bias. The head has been elongated to increase MOI by 13% to generate greater forgiveness.

The PING i15 fairway wood should suit golfers who like the trademark PING fairway wood shape and are not intimidated by a shallow face and relatively small head. This fairway wood should also appeal to those who want to shape their shots.

Neil has worked for Golf Monthly for over 15-years. Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. Neil is currently a 3-handicap golfer who has played the game for as long as he can remember. In his role at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points. 

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing all new drivers and is part of a team testing golf balls. He is able to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!"
