What we say...
Ping G Driver Review: Tech
The Ping G driver has a dragonfly crown design that removes inefficient weight from high in the head and repositions it, to lower and deepen the centre of gravity.
Further to that are turbulators, a Vortec Shredder and an aerodynamic head shape to help improve speed in the Ping G driver. A new counter-balanced Alta shaft means you swing at the same speed but the club head travels quicker.

Ping G Driver Review: Our verdict
We’ve got to give it to Ping, their driver line up is very clever. Other brands launch drivers aimed at different golfers, which often ends up confusing consumer’s over which is aimed at them.
Ping go at it differently, confidently saying we make one driver that can be played by anyone. If you generate too much spin or suffer with a slice then we also make lower spin and draw-biased models.
As far as performance goes the Ping G driver was top draw last year and it remains so for 2017. It’s the Ping driver best fitted to our test pro Chris Ryan and he racked up some seriously impressive data with it.
Ping shout about the G’s aerodynamic performance, fittingly it delivered the highest average club speed for two of three testers. A tiny 0.8mph drop off in ball speed between centre and off centre hits shows how forgiving the Ping G Driver is even when hit 1.5cm out of the toe!
Ping G Driver Review: Bottom line
Proper fitting for any Ping G driver is vital as demonstrated by our test pro best fitting the G rather than the lower spinning LS-Tec head. A huge benefit for us is the improved sound which is much more powerful, even though it’s louder than much of the competition.
