Like the driver and fairway versions, the Ping G30 Hybrid is again a very simple, yet effective club. The one difference is this time the hybrid does not have the Turbulators on the crown. The G30 has progressive CG locations and offsets to ensure trajectories and gapping, which is very important with your hybrids. The G30’s sole is flatter than I tend to see when compared with the other OEM’s offerings. Another noticeable difference is a lower profile head. This simple clean head sits very well at address, and looks easy to hit; neither too large, nor too small.
Who’s it for?
Ping does about as good as job as anyone at making clubs that can fit a large range of players, and the G30 Hybrid is yet another example.
Though it did not feature that wicked, cracking noise like the driver did, it did provide me with a solid feeling that I liked. The ball flight was a touch high for the 22 degree head that I tested, but the spin was controlled enough to not cause any ballooning. The G30 hybrid is another excellent club by Ping that will be liked by many.
