Ping 2016 G Driver

The PING G Driver is exactly what you expect from the G Series; long, forgiving and extremely accurate, designed to improve your game off every tee whether you need help finding the fairway or you want to precisely shape your shot. It’s a driver that will benefit the super high handicap golfer without question and still be just as beneficial to the Tour Pro playing his Signature Pink design. It’s faster than its predecessor who introduced us to the Turbulator Technology; this new G Driver has it built up speed and aggression with new aerodynamic technology. The Turbulators are still present but now they are coupled with VorTec and Dragonfly Technologies. The Dragonfly Tec lowers the weight across the entire head, from the crown to the tail, 8 grams are saved to help optimize the Center of Gravity (CG) and the Moment of Inertia (MOI), however it also helps reduce drag by up to 37% for greater club head speed resulting in an increase of 3-4 carry yards. The VorTec Technology is derived from the same principal used with big rig trucks; it could almost be described as a tail that shapes the way air resistance is allowed to release from the club head. The VorTec minimize turbulence which increase club head speed and helps keep the head more stable through your entire swing from address to follow through. Speed isn’t the only thing that makes the G Driver, a thin T9S (special Titanium) face, makes it more forgiving and consistent yet retains a hotness that increases ball speed at impact. As with all the G Series models that came before the G Driver, PING has brought the CG deeper to its core; resulting in the most forgiving and highest MOI the G Series has ever been since its introduction 10 years ago. The PING G Series Driver also has the ability to adjust trajectory for fine tuning you preferred launch with their adjustable hosel technology that will let you change your loft +/-1° from standard settings. PING never stops at just the head characteristics when designing their products; they always pair the head with a shaft that performs best through extensive testing. The new G Series Drivers feature a high balance point shaft, similar to the 419 that was paired in the G30 Series, the Alta which performs well for the majority of golfers looking to play better by through a system that stores more energy until the point where momentum and inertia blend to release the power of your game.
