Wilson has been producing excellent value and often underrated golf clubs for a number of years now. The new Wilson Staff D9 range is another example of over-performing its price tag and I think the hybrid will suit any mid handicap golfer perfectly. It has the premium look of all the top manufacturers, whilst offering the combination of distance, versatility and forgiveness that mid handicap golfers are looking for.
The addition of new Variable Face Technology delivers fast ball speeds and a high launching ball flight off a larger clubface area for forgiveness on mishits. Designed through the Wilson Labs, computer testing has played a vital role in ensuring the D9 hybrid has optimal weighting in an aerodynamic clubhead for smooth and fast swing speeds.
It is worth noting that hybrids do not suit every golfer and some will prefer the use of a utility iron. There are benefits to the use of both and it comes down to individual preference. However, if you are a mid handicap golfer that does not get on with hybrids, I recommend checking out the Titleist U510 Utility Iron. This would be my pick for the best mid handicap utility iron.
● Excellent value for money
● Forgiving on off-centre strikes
● Powerful feeling clubface and good distance
● Comes with a premium shaft as standard despite lower price
● Not every golfer will favour the Wilson brand
