Today's Golfer (UK) - - American Golf - Lofts: 9°, 10.5° Stock shaft: Alta 55, Tour 65, Tour 80 Ad­justable hosel: Yes How much loft change: +/-1° TECH: All the same aero­dy­namic engi­neer­ing tech as the stan­dard G driver, with a cen­tre of grav­ity that’s slightly fur­ther for­ward to lower spin for harder hit­ters.

WE SAY: It’s a com­plete mis­con­cep­tion the lower-spin­ning LS Tec is only for pros and bet­ter play­ers. TG Ed­i­tor Chris, who plays off 11, was told by Ping’s fit­ter he’s got the same ball speed as Hunter Ma­han, but twice as much spin. So in a bid to lower it and max­imise dis­tance he was fit­ted into the LS Tec. Si­mon typ­i­cally hits a driver too high, and the LS Tec helped lower his peak height by about 12 feet and meant this was his long­est G driver.

VER­DICT: We were re­ally im­pressed – again – with all three G driv­ers. There’s some­thing within the range for every golfer. Do your­self a favour and make sure you get prop­erly fit­ted to en­sure your set-up max­imises your ul­ti­mate dis­tance po­ten­tial.
