The new Ping G30 driver has enjoyed almost instant success as it has become the No.1 selling driver in the United States of America and the United Kingdom in only its second month on the market.
In data published by Golf Datatech LLC, which tracks golf equipment sell-thru data for both regions, the Ping G30 achieved the No.1 sales position for units and dollars in the on- and off-course retail channels combined for the month of September in both regions.
The driver, which boasts Ping’s innovative Turbulator Technology on the club’s crown, was first launched on July 31 this year and the brand has seen demand for the driver reach unprecedented levels for the company since that day.
"They love the turbulators' - John A. Solheim, Ping chairman and CEO
Golfers have been impressed by the increase in clubhead and ball speeds that the Ping G30 offers, ultimately leading to more distance. It also features the highest MOI of any Ping driver ever designed to ensure golfers the accuracy and consistency to hit more fairways.
“The response to the G30 driver has been phenomenal,” said John A. Solheim, Ping chairman and CEO. “Our engineering team has created a club that is impacting the driver business unlike anything we’ve seen. Golfers all over the world are hitting the ball farther than ever with the G30 driver, thanks to Turbulator Technology.”

Ping G30 a hit on tour
The driver proved an instant hit with Ping’s tour staff as most converted to the new Ping G30 driver immediately. Angel Cabrera certainly liked it, winning the Greenbrier Classic the first week it was on the PGA Tour. Bubba Watson also put the Ping G30 driver in the bag that week, and he went on to finish the PGA Tour season top of the driving distance table with an average of 314.3 yards, including the longest drive of the season – 424 yards – at the Bridgestone Invitational.
Billy Horschel was another Ping G30 convert as the new driver gained him 12 yards off the tee, and played a big role in helping him win the FedEx Cup, as he won twice en route to earning more than $13.4 million.
“All golfers are benefitting from the technology of the G30 driver,” added Solheim. “The tour results speak for themselves, but we’re hearing every day from golfers of all skill levels who are commenting on how the driver has changed their games. They love the turbulators.”
