Tech:

All the same aerodynamic engineering tech as the standard G driver, with a centre of gravity that’s slightly further forward to lower spin for harder hitters. A slightly heavier swingweight and the Tour 65 shaft will suit golfers swinging at above average swing speeds. 

Our verdict

It’s a complete misconception the lower spinning LS-Tec driver is only for harder hitters, pros and better players. TG Editor Chris Jones who plays off 11 was told by Ping’s fitter he’s got the same ball speed as Hunter Mahan but the spin of a hacker, so in a bid to lower spin and maximise distance was fitted into the LS-Tec. Simon typically hits driver too high so the LS-Tec helped lower his peak height by about 12 feet and thanks to the lower spin meant the LS-Tec was his longest G driver.

Bottom line:

We are seriously impressed with all three Ping G driver models, there’s something within the range for every golfer. Do yourself a favour and make sure you get properly fitted to ensure your set up maximises your ultimate carry distance potential.
