What we say...

Tech:

The first Ping hybrid to have “Turbulators” on the crown which Ping say not only improves aerodynamics but also aids alignment and focus. A thinned out crown means more weight positioned to improve MOI, while a new carpenter steel face and tiered sole help optimize face flex to increase ball speeds.

 

Our verdict:

We can’t say the G’s “Turbulators” helped raise our club speeds to new levels but we’re happy to agree they cleverly helped direct focus onto the ball at address. The Ping’s real strength is its consistency, with just 7 yards of carry distance drop off between middle and off centre hits (for Chris Ryan) its got to be said the wide and long head is really stable and efficient. Ping’s new counter weighted Alta shaft flighted shots higher than average for each tester and span a little more too, meaning the G would be particularly good for hitting accurate approaches into greens, as the decent is steeper and spin was above average too.

 

Bottom line:

The G’s wider body is particularly suited to golfers who sweep shots off the deck. We didn’t all love the unconventional groove pattern but we could agree it’s exceptionally easy to hit consistently well.
