Ping G Driver

Long and Straight.

Inspired by an approach called biomimicry, PING engineers analyzed the dragonfly's intricate wing pattern to design ultra-thin crown section for extreme CG and maximized MOI. Dragonfly Technology, Vortec Technology, turbulators and a strong T9S face created PING's longest, most forgiving driver ever. Available in three modles to fit your preferred trajectory.

Faster Design
Speed generating aerodynamics reduce drag 37% and increase carry distance 3-4 yards.

Longer, More Forgiving
This T9S face and CG optimization deliver faster ball speeds, more forgiveness and more consistency.

Faster Clubhead and Ball Speeds
Turbulator Technology, VorTec and face/crown transition combine for more efficient airflow.

VorTec Technology
Minimizes wake turbulence for faster clubhead speed and stabilization.

Dragonfly Technology
Ultra-thin crown sections save 8 grams of weight to optimize CG and MOI.

T9S Titanium Face
Thinner, hotter for max deflection and distance.

Trajectory Tuning
5-lobe hosel sleeve allows +/- 1° of loft adjustment.

Lowest, Deepest CG & Highest MOI
PING’s longest, straightest driver delivers forgiveness and consistency.

Alta High-Balance-Point Shaft
Gives more energy, momentum and inertia which means longer, straighter shots.

Options to Fit Golfers

The Takeaway

Inspired by an approach called Biomimicry, Ping engineers studied the dragonfly’s complex wing patterns. From that they were able to design ultra-thin crown sections for extreme CG and maximized MOI resulting in their longest most forgiving driver ever. The lowest, deepest CG of any Ping driver, it generates greater distance by increasing dynamic loft on both axes for maximizing forgiveness. Vortech technology on the back of the Ti 8-1-1 head minimizes turbulent wake during the downswing for faster speed with stability and forgiveness. Paired with Crown Turbolators they claim to reduce drag 37% through the impact zone.

Who's It For?

The G Series Driver will cover a large majority of the golfers and will be the most popular of the 3 different versions of the G Series.

Final Take

The G Series Driver is a follow-up of my favorite driver from 2015, the G30. Like the G30, I found the G Series Driver to be just as easy to hit with excellent ball flight, great feel and feedback. However, the G Series Driver with a slightly different sound to it. With the Dragonfly technology the crown is a bit more busy, but nothing that hindered my concentration. The Flat black, blue trimmed head is quite larger looking due to the larger footprint of the 460cc head. The 9° that I tested sat very square to my eye and the large head size instilled confidence. This head is considered the neutral head of the G Series drivers.
