Q & A
PING’s G irons deliver all of the performance advantages of game-improvement irons, most notably more distance, higher launch angles, and maximum forgiveness, while packaging those attributes in a design that has the look of a players club. By connecting the G’s Custom Tuning Port to the sole, a deeper center of gravity was created, leading to higher launch and increased MOI. COR-Eye Technology, meanwhile, delivers the faster ball speeds that equate to more distance. That said, the G features a fairly compact profile and minimal offset, as well as a thinner topline and sole, all of which combine to give the club a streamlined look at address. Also of note, the AWT 2.0 shafts that come stock in the G irons have added performance benefits. In the longer irons, the shafts are lighter to create higher launch angles and more distance, while the shafts in the shorter irons are heavier to promote better control, both in terms of trajectory and distance.

A wide variety of golfers with multiple playing profiles. Mid- and high-handicappers who are in need of more distance and higher launch to improve their iron play with love how the G irons perform. But low-handicappers who value a clean, compact clubhead will also appreciate the way the G irons look at address, especially when factoring in how forgiving these clubs are. In short, the G will end up in a lot of bags and the bags of very different types of players.
This technology activates the sole, top rail, and face at the same time for increased flex and a hotter clubface that generates more distance.
A specialized heating process creates a material for the face that is 40 percent stronger than regular 17-4 stainless steel, which enables a thinner, more stable clubface. The result is faster ball speeds across the face and optimal launch.
An enlarged cavity badge works in unison with COR-Eye Technology to optimize sound and feel at impact.
“We’ve very excited with the new G iron. What we’ve done with the design has been able to to deliver forgiveness and a lot of the distance to the golfer through a number of different features.”
Ryan Stokke, PING Design Engineering Manager
“It was really that soft feel and how the ball honestly jumped off the clubface. It’s got me in the market for buying a new set of clubs.”
