PING Golf launches all new G30 Driver

With an emphasis on significantly increasing ball velocity and accuracy through a combination of advanced aerodynamics, plus new face designs and materials, PING has introduced the G30 series – the company’s latest innovations that provide golfers measurable distance gains without sacrificing key performance attributes such as control and forgiveness.

The G30 series includes two driver options — standard and SF Tec (Straight Flight Technology). The product line can be pre-ordered beginning July 1 at PING-authorised golf shops around the world.

The most visible innovation on the G30 driver is the patented turbulators engineered onto the crown. Inspired by the aeronautics and sporting industries that put a premium on speed, Turbulator Technology reduces aerodynamic drag by significantly delaying airflow separation, maintaining attached airflow around the clubhead as it approaches impact, leading to more speed.

The entire G30 series benefits from new face technologies and materials, including the introduction of T9S titanium in the drivers, which results in thinner faces and weight savings that help position the CG low and back.

The G30 SF Tec driver option is engineered for players whose shots typically end up right of the intended target. In player testing, the G30 SF Tec driver, which features weight closer to the heel and lighter swingweights, improved shot bend by 12 yards when compared to the G30 standard driver.

PING has also increased the range of adjustability to five loft positions in the driver while maintaining the same mass and outer diameter as the company’s fixed hosels, providing the benefits of adjustability with no sacrifice in performance. The lightweight hosel allows golfers to increase or decrease loft 6/10 of a degree or 1 full degree to optimise launch conditions.

Turbulators on the crown of the 460cc Ti 8-1-1 head reduce aerodynamic drag, leading to faster clubhead speed and ball velocity for long, accurate drives. Turbulators also assist with aim and alignment.

The higher strength/weight ratio of the T9S face material allows for a thinner, hotter face and saves 4 grams of weight.

The weight savings are allocated to help position the CG lower and farther back than any PING driver to date, ensuring high launch and optimised spin with a high MOI.

SF Tec heads promote a right-to-left ball flight for players whose shots typically end up right of the target.

To optimize launch angle and spin, golfers can add or subtract up to 1 degree of loft using Trajectory Tuning+ Technology. A high-balance-point TFC 419D shaft has a CG closer to the grip end, promoting a simultaneous increase in energy, momentum and inertia.

The custom tuning port can accommodate a range of fitting weights and allows PING to achieve the desired swing weight across a variety of proprietary and after-market shafts.
