Golfers seeking a fairway club that combines a little extra forgiveness off the tee but can provide additional yards for those long par fives will be intrigued by the PING G Stretch.

With a larger head size than most fairway clubs it instills confidence at address.

A slightly more forward centre of gravity and 13 degrees of loft also reduce spin to help the player gain more distance. This is especially beneficial for the talented player who can make centred strikes of the ball.

To aid the player, given the more forward centre of gravity, the leading edge of the clubhead has been lowered to help the golfer hit the ball higher up the club face.

The thin, 455 stainless steel face provides a “hot” feel and great ball speed. It was notable when the smash factor is measured on TrackMan; centred contacts return a lot of speed to the ball and even slightly off-centre hits were not overly punished.

It’s an effective weapon for golfers looking for the combination for an alternate club off the tee or needing to reach extra long par fives in two.
