Golf Monthly Verdict

Bigger, more offset heads than we’re used to. But the G5 is just one easy-to-hit club throughout – as you’d expect from a company that’s ploughed the game-improvement furrow for five decades now.

Brushed-finish, deep-cavity, oversize head with heel notch and rear tuning port that helps better distribute weight around the head. The deep parallel cavity allows a wider, more playable sole and boosts perimeter weighted forgiveness potential.Large heads and deep, wide soles help push centre of gravity lower and deeper for easy launching. A larger rear Custom Tuning Port helps dampen vibrations for better feel off the clubface.

Jeremy Ellwood has worked in the golf industry since 1993 and for Golf Monthly since 2002 when he started out as equipment editor. He is now a freelance journalist writing mainly for Golf Monthly across the whole spectrum from courses and Rules to equipment and even instruction despite his own somewhat iffy swing (he knows how to do it, but just can't do it himself). He also edits The Golf Club Secretary Newsletter, has authored or co-authored three books and written for a number of national papers including The Telegraph and The Independent. He is a senior panelist for Golf Monthly's Top 100 UK & Ireland Course Rankings and has played all of the Top 100 plus 89 of the Next 100. He has played well over 900 courses worldwide in 35 countries, but put him on a links course anywhere and he will be blissfully content. On his first trip to Abu Dhabi a decade ago he foolishly asked Paul Casey what sort of a record he had around the course there. "Well, I've won it twice if that's what you mean!" came the reply...
