I gamed the TaylorMade Qi10 Tour Hybrid for 5 rounds and counting this spring.  It has a “tour” label, but is much bigger and more forgiving than one might expect.  I am impressed by how easy it is to hit and how straight it goes, yet can still work the ball and hit a variety of shots. lie.      

This is the definitive TaylorMade Qi10 Tour Hybrid Review for 2024.



If the word “Tour” is stamped on a club, it suddenly has an aura about it.  Is it “tour only” like clubs of a decade ago?  Was it designed for and played by tour players?  Is it simply a compact version of the regular model?  The TaylorMade Qi10 Tour Hybrid is played by a number of tour guys and is a more compact, neutral bias, strong hitting hybrid.  If you like a strong launch, lower spin, non-draw bias hybrid this is one you need to check out, even if you are a “tour” golfer.

Qi10 Forgiveness

The TaylorMade Qi10 Tour Hybird is way more forgiving than I expected.  Forgiveness is the story of the Qi10 line, and even though this is the tour model, it has plenty of forgiveness.  It starts with the forged twist face which offers deflection angles to get the most out of every strike, even if it isn’t dead center.  IT also has a speed pocket on the sole which mean low hits will still retain good speed.  So between these two technologies you have a club that will help the ball go straight along with maintaining speed across the face. 

Strong Launch

The TaylorMade Qi10 Tour Hybrid launches the ball on a very strong trajectory.  It isn’t high, more mid launch and flat flight.  While the 3 hybrid came in at 19.5* I compare it to many other heads with lower loft stamped on them.  There is a sole weight that is set deep and back so you can still get the ball easily off the ground, but the compact head, neutral bias and weight keep the launch more like a long iron than a fairway wood.  You can chase a ball down the fairway or you can launch it up for holding the green.  It has lowish spin so you maximize the carry distance on each shot, while not infringing on your 3-wood distance. 

Deep Face

The TaylorMade Qi10 Tour Hybrid has a high toe with a deep face.  I really like this feature since I hit my hybrid out of all different lies.  In the deep rough it can be hard to hit at just the right height, so having a deep face is perfect.  I also really like it off the tee as it inspires confidence with is sitting off the ground a little bit.  Yet even off tight fairway lies, it is easy to get the full face on the ball.  The slightly rounded sole helps really get through the turf and make solid contact with the ball.  The big deep face also helps with forgiveness yet the overall shape and look is really good.


The TaylorMade Qi10 Tour Hybird comes stock with a Mitsubishi Tensai AV Blue shaft.  I found it to hit that 225 yardage number accurately and consistently.  If I’m on a really narrow hole, this is a club I can hit with confidence yet still getting good distance as needed.  The pop off the face, the solid feel, and everything I’ve talked about above has led to confidence on every shot.  I get the distance I need, the flight I’m looking for and the forgiveness even when I don’t swing perfectly.  For me the hybrid is all about filling the gap between a 3-wood and 4-iron.  This 3-hybrid does the trick perfectly.  While I’ve been a driving iron guy for the last couple seasons, this is changing my mind with iron like qualities in feel and launch, but the added forgiveness helps scoring.


While the TaylorMade Qi10 Tour Hybrid has the “tour” label, it is a player friendly and forgiving hybrid that can hit all the shots, feels amazing and looks nice behind the ball.  I’m impressed by the on-course performance which led to great storing opportunities. Don’t fear the “tour” name if you want a neutral bias, strong hitting, yet forgiving hybrid.
