PING G30 series launched

2014 07 G30 Driver 10 51

PING has released the much anticipated G30 series, available to pre-order now. The PING G30 innovations seek to increase distance without sacrificing key performance attributes such as control and forgiveness.


The range places an emphasis on increasing ball velocity and accuracy through a combination of advanced aerodynamics, new face designs and new materials.

The G30 series includes two driver options, standard and SF Tec (Straight Flight Technology). Fairway woods, hybrids and irons are included as well, and you can pre-order them as of today from PING authorised golf shops worldwide.

John A. Solheim, PING chairman & CEO is confidant the series can improve the vital aspects of players game.

“With the PING G30 series, our engineers once again accomplished something that is unique to PING products,” said Solheim.“They elevated performance significantly in key areas without sacrificing other important attributes.”

“Across the product line, we’ve proved you can hit the ball higher and farther while increasing forgiveness and control. We’ve also continued our focus on advancing custom fitting in the driver and fairway woods by offering five loft positions.”


PING G30 turbulator technology


The most visible innovation on the G30 driver is the patented turbulators engineered onto the crown. Turbulator Technology reduces aerodynamic drag by significantly delaying airflow separation. This maintains airflow around the clubhead as it approaches impact leading to more speed.

“Wind-tunnel testing verified with clarity the role they play in reducing drag on the driver head, but its real benefit was confirmed through our player testing,” said Solheim.

“When Bubba Watson first tested the turbulators, he picked up two miles per hour in clubhead speed and four miles per hour in ball speed, which meant 10 more yards for him.”

New technology


The entire PING G30 series benefits from new face technologies and materials, including the introduction of T9S titanium in the drivers. This results in thinner faces and weight savings that help position the CG low and back.

The fairway woods utilise a high strength Carpenter 475 steel in the face, and the hybrids are heat treated with an H900 process. Both result in hotter, more forgiving faces.

The G30 iron face is also thinner, making for a higher ball speeds. It is stabilised by a new custom tuning port design for predictable distance control.

Change your loft


PING has also increased the range of adjustability to five loft positions in the driver and fairway woods, while maintaining the same mass and outer diameter as the company’s fixed hosels.

What’s more, the lightweight hosel allows golfers to increase or decrease loft 6/10 of a degree or 1 full degree to optimise launch conditions.
