PING has long been known for making irons suitable for the average player, the one who struggles with consistent strokes of the golf ball and likes a little “help”. The new G irons continue that legacy.

To give the golfer some assistance PING used their “COR-Eye” technology to increase the face flex by as much as four times for more ball speed. The use of heat treated 17-4 stainless steel also allowed the face to be made thinner as the Hyper 17-4 alloy is 40% stronger than traditional stainless steel. Even with all that included the look is smaller and sleeker than expected.

What surprises you when you hit them is how easy it is to achieve high launch angles, something we even witnessed in watching slower swing speed players try them out.

Golfer struggling for results will also appreciate the use of AWT 2.0 ascending weight shafts. The progression to lighter weights in the long irons helps the average golfer to gain much-needed speed while the heavier short iron shafts encourage control.

As always the PING G irons are available in many options so they can be custom fitted to the individual golfer.
