Utility; driving iron; hybrid?
PING claims the new G Crossover is in a category of its own and after testing it I found myself both confused and intrigued. It holds the promise of being stable like a hybrid design but with the control you might find in a driving iron. With a good amount of mass located in the toe area you’ll not find it to be draw-biased like many clubs made for play in the long iron range.
The sole design is one that allows for the “give” in the face, sole, and top line area – resulting in flex to increase ball speeds over a stiff, static configuration.
The 455 carpenter steel face gives a crisp feel and being flat, allows a different level of control over a hybrid with roll and bulge.
Investigate it further to see if it is a good fit for your set-up. It’s the type of club you have to see and try and understand what it can do. Pictures alone do not do justice to it and represent its capabilities in the hands of a golfer, especially a skilled one.
Available in 18, 21, and 24 degree lofts in left and right handed.
