With a focus on providing maximum forgiveness with as much speed as possible, through a combination of Centre of Gravity (CG) placement optimisation and advanced drag reduction technology, PING introduced the new G series – the company’s latest game-changing innovations that will provide measurable performance gains without sacrificing any important attributes.
Following on from the incredibly successful G30 series, the new G range includes three driver options — standard, SF Tec (Straight Flight Technology) and LS Tec (Low-Spin Technology) — along with three fairway woods (standard, SF Tec and Stretch), hybrids and irons. PING has also announced the introduction of G Crossover, a new category of club designed to provide the distance of a hybrid with the control and accuracy of an iron.
Ping G Driver
Through the use of Dragonfly Technology, a thinner crown enables weight to be re-allocated within the head to move the CG even lower and deeper to maximise the Moment of Intertia (MOI) for optimal forgiveness.The new G driver features Vortec Technology which improves club head aerodynamics by minimising wake turbulence for faster club head speed and stability.
Ping G Fairway Woods
A lower leading edge sits closer to the ground which raises the impact position on the face to make getting the ball airborne easier. The properties of the Carpenter 455 steel face allow for a thinner, variable-thickness face, which increases flexing at impact to deliver increased ball speeds and higher launch through improved roll-radius consistency. A new cascading sole design engages more of the structure during the face bending process, resulting in a large springing effect for faster ball speeds.
Ping G Hybrids
Through a similar use of a cascading sole design and a Carpenter 455 steel face, the G hybrids enable more face bending for increased ball speeds. Combined with un-painted grooves in the middle of the face, the addition of turbulators improves alignment and inspires confidence by providing improved ball capture at address.
With its introduction defining an innovative new category, the G Crossover provides golfers the distance of a hybrid with the control and accuracy of an iron. An iron-style Carpenter 455 steel face coupled with a tiered internal sole maximises both trajectory control and distance, while extreme toe weighting expands perimeter weighting to provide hybrid-like forgiveness.
Ping G Irons
Featuring PING’s revolutionary COR-Eye™ Technology, the new G iron’s thinner face facilitates more bending at peak deflection for additional carry with a higher max higher for increased stopping power. The newly designed cavity structure houses the concealed Custom Tuning Port that connects to the sole for the very first time, enabling each iron’s center of gravity to be moved lower and father back for extreme forgiveness.
