Lofts: 2/17°, 3/19°, 4/22°, 5/26°, 6/30°
Stock shaft: Alta 70, Tour 90 TFC 80H
Adjustable hosel: No
TECH: The first Ping hybrid with ‘turbulators’ on the crown, which Ping say not only improves aerodynamics but also aids alignment.
WE SAY: We can’t say the turbulators helped raise club speeds to new levels, but we’re happy to agree they cleverly helped direct focus onto the ball at address. The real strength here is its consistency, with just seven yards of carry distance drop-off between middle and off-centre hits (for
Chris Ryan); it means the wide and long head is really stable and efficient. Ping’s new counterweighted Alta shaft flighted shots higher than average for each tester and span a little more too, meaning the G would be particularly good for hitting accurate approaches into greens.
VERDICT: The wider body is particularly suited to golfers who sweep shots off the deck. We didn’t all love the unconventional groove pattern, but it’s exceptionally easy to hit consistently well.
