Avail­abil­ity: 4-LW

Stock shaft: Ping AWT 2.0 (s) CFS Graphite (g) plus four steel op­tions at no ex­tra cost

7i loft/length: 30.5° / 37”

TECH: COR-Eye tech be­hind the face en­cour­ages more of the face, top rail and sole to flex at im­pact to in­crease ball speeds. By con­nect­ing a “cus­tom tun­ing port” to the sole rather than the face low­ers and deep­ens the CG, in­creas­ing for­give­ness.

WE SAY: Th­ese are just what tons of club golfers need. In our opin­ion the cur­rent Gs, which are now in their sec­ond year, are the best of the GI bunch, and they still stack up with the com­pe­ti­tion. Simon recorded his joint high­est in­di­vid­ual ball speed with them, while the other two testers recorded a ball speed 3mph quicker than the test av­er­age and two yards over the bench­mark carry dis­tance. They’re just as good now as when they were launched last year, though given Ping’s launch cy­cle, we could rea­son­ably ex­pect new Gs this sum­mer.

VER­DICT: Still a se­ri­ously good iron. Lots of game im­prove­ment irons talk of com­bin­ing the look of a players’ iron in a gameim­prove­ment chas­sis, but don’t quite get it right. The G pulls it off su­perbly.
