TECH: Ping have re­designed the lead­ing edge of the G fairways to get more face un­der the ball at im­pact, mak­ing it eas­ier to get shots air­borne.

Crown Tur­bu­la­tors im­prove aerodynamic ef­fi­ciency.

WE SAY: All three testers agreed the G has a re­ally good pro­file be­hind the ball. The shape gets a lot of face be­low the ball’s cen­tre and the shal­low pro­file and mid-size head re­ally help in­spire con­fi­dence, with­out be­ing too big to put off more con­fi­dent golfers. Per­for­mance-wise, as with the rest of the G range, the fair­way is re­ally solid. Not the long­est, but with just 3.9mph ball speed drop-off be­tween nailed shots and mishits, it’s re­ally sta­ble and will de­liver a very con­sis­tent per­for­mance on the golf course.

VER­DICT: In our book fairways need to be re­ally ver­sa­tile clubs. You pri­mar­ily need to launch them off the fair­way, but you’ll also need to fall back on them for tight tee shots, we reckon the G can do a very solid job at both.
