PING debuts Tour-proven G20 Series
On the strength of tour players’ enthusiasm for the new G20 family, PING introduces several new products that build on the company’s reputation for performance, innovation and fitting.
“There’s a lot of new technology in the entire G20 family,” said John A. Solheim, PING Chairman & CEO. “Our engineers optimised the clubs to fit and benefit golfers of all skill levels. In the driver, we’re using for the first time a titanium alloy called Ti 8-1-1, which allows us to improve the weighting to better optimise the entire clubhead. The fairway woods and hybrids offer golfers high-launching, forgiving options from all conditions.”
For all ability levels, the external weighting of the large, forgiving G20 driver helps launch the ball high with low spin for maximum distance and accuracy by optimising the CG location.
PING’s proprietary high-balance-point TFC 169D shaft enables the golfer to swing a clubhead with more mass at the same speed, creating a higher MOI and generating faster ball speeds for long, straight drives.
A large, variable-thickness face generates faster ball speeds and increases the MOI across the hitting surface for power and forgiveness. The 460cc clubhead is made from Ti 8-1-1, a lighter, lower-density alloy.
- Lofts available: 8.5°, 9.5°, 10.5° & 12°
- Stock graphite shafts: TFC 169D (L, Soft R, R, S, and X flexes) and TFC 169D Tour (R, S, and X flexes)
- RRP: AUD$380
The G20 irons hit the ball long with forgiveness and distance control. Extreme perimeter weighting in the deep, multi-cavity design makes the 17-4 stainless steel heads highly forgiving.
A multi-material cavity badge made with soft elastomer heel and toe sections improves feel and sound. The cavity’s floating CTP structure stabilizes a thin face to generate fast ball speeds and distance with control.
Combined with PING’s new CFS (Control, Feel, Stability) steel shaft, the G20 optimizes feel, trajectories and distance gaps for more consistency.
- Available: 3-9, PW, UW, SW, LW
- Stock steel shaft: PING CFS (Soft R, R, S and X flexes)
- Stock graphite shaft: TFC 169i (L, Soft R, R and S flexes)
- RRP: AUD$125 per club w/steel shaft; AUD$150 per club w/graphite shaft.
G20 Fairway Woods
Getting the ball airborne and adding yards is easy with external weighting and a low-deep CG that produces high launch and optimal spin for long, straight results.
The large, 17-4 stainless steel head and face increase the MOI to maintain consistent ball speeds across the hitting surface. Face height is optimised to offer a visually appealing, forgiving option from the tee or fairway.
Golfers can optimise their ball flights by choosing either the higher-launching TFC 169F shaft or the TFC 169F Tour version for a lower trajectory.
- Fairway woods available: 3, 4, 5, and 7-woods
- Stock graphite shafts: TFC 169F (L, Soft R, R, S, and X flexes) and TFC 169F Tour (R, S, and X flexes)
- RRP: AUD$260
An offset hosel produces shots with high launch, low spin and a straight, boring trajectory for improved accuracy and greater distance.
A shorter heel-to-toe length ensures playability from all conditions and provides a flatter lie angle and softer crown shape for an improved appearance at address.
Additional bounce and camber create exceptional ground impact and ensure a smooth transition through the grass, especially when the ball is sitting down. A large, internal weight inside the 17-4 stainless steel head provides forgiveness and distance.
- Hybrids available: 17º, 20º, 23º, 27º, 31º
- Stock graphite shafts: TFC 169H (L, Soft R, R, S and X flexes) and TFC 169H Tour (R, S and X flexes)
- RRP: AUD$220
