What we say...

Tech:

A hybrid that launches high and lands soft say Titleist. An active recoil channel helps maintain ball speeds across the face for when shots are hit off centre. The larger profile inspires confidence in those who prefer the look of a fairway wood.

 

Our verdict:

Titleist were the first to really talk about how hybrids can be split into different categories based on their body width. The H1 with its wide body is aimed at golfers who sweep hybrid shots off the fairway rather than engaging with the turf like an iron. Simon’s sweeping swing was well suited to the H1 and impressively it only dropped 6 yards of carry distance between centre and off centre hits, meaning it would make for some accurate shot making on the course. Shots flew a fraction higher than average, which would also help settle shots down quickly even on reasonably hard greens.

 

Bottom line:

Titleist talk about wanting to improve consistency across their range to reduce the peaks and troughs between good and bad shots. The H1 certainly delivered on this score, it’s also a really nice looking, confidence inspiring design that’s very capable of out-performing long irons.
