What we say...

Technology
G30 woods retain the driver's Turbulator drag-thwarting crown, through a hotter face, without sacrificing launch or consistency, was the primary inspiration. Hotter face - stronger steel allowed Ping to create a thin, uniform-thickness face which maxes deflection at impact. New centre of gravity - it moves forward as the lofts get higher to keep the launch angle and spin characteristics optimised for distance and control in each clubhead. Adjustable loft - there’s up to two full degrees of loft adjustment – five settings in all – to tweak launch and spin.

We caught up with Ping's chief club designer Marty Jertson to find out more about the fairway wood design - watch the video here.

Tested
As reviewed in our 2014 Fairway Woods Test:
The shape is nice, mid face depth. The length from heel to toe will suit a game improvers’ eye. The Turbulators add some attitude, but may be more effective on the driver – they didn’t seem to increase club speed. Turbulators help position the ball centrally. They didn’t do as much to increase my club speed as they do on the driver. It felt really stable, like the strike point didn’t matter. Adjustability enhances the versatility further. Shots felt fantastic off the face. So powerful and very forgiving on poor strikes.

  • 5 out of 5 A dream come true

    By Kenneth Rust

    Despairing of ever hitting my 3 wood from the fairway, in spite of making great shots from the tee box, I tried a Ping (I have the Driver G30). A total revelation, full of confidence I will get the ball away down the fairway, utter relief and pleasure.

    By Lunkas

    Bought a new 5wood on My way to the golfcourse.After a good drive on the first par 5 hole I took out My new Pingwood for the second shot to a narrow landingarea- the first stroke - just removed the plastic from the head. - Took one practisswing and then hit a perfect shot with as slight draw, Unbelivable easy to swing, Did not miss one singel shot during the rest of the round.... Thank You Ping for My best round this summer. Lars Lundström - Sweden.
