VER­DICT Many strug­gle with fair­way woods be­cause they catch the ball too low on the face. Ping’s so­lu­tion? Move the lead­ing edge closer to the turf, which im­proves im­pact by moving it higher on the face for bet­ter launch and more speed. A thin crown re­sults in a lower cen­tre of grav­ity so shots launch with less spin for ex­tra dis­tance. COM­MENTS (L) If you can’t hit a fair­way wood off the ground, this is the club for you. (M) There’s a crush­ing sen­sa­tion at im­pact. It’s long and for­giv­ing. (H) The crown tur­bu­la­tors help with your aim by draw­ing your at­ten­tion to the mid­dle of the face.
