Introducing the PING G20 family

Next generation drivers, irons, wedges and putters from the Solheim brand

Introducing the PING G20 family

We all saw Tom Lewis bounding down the fairways of Royal St George’s with his PING emblazoned cap and bag – and the GM inbox was inundated with requests to know what he was using.

Well, we answered it in the way of an In the Bag article – and now, on the strength of Tour players’ enthusiasm for the new family and Anser Milled putters, PING have launched the G20 range to the public. Headline act? The G20 driver (left), already in the bag of Bubba Watson, Ángel Cabrera and Miguel Angel Jimenez.

“There’s a lot of new technology in the entire G20 family,” said PING chairman and CEO John Solheim. “Our engineers optimised the clubs to fit and benefit golfers of all skill levels. 

“In the driver, we’re using for the first time a titanium alloy called Ti 8-1-1, which allows us to improve the weighting to better optimise the entire clubhead. When combined with our new, proprietary high-balance-point shaft, our testing shows significant improvements in energy transfer, which leads to longer, straighter drives.

“The irons are more forgiving and feature a cavity design that includes an elastomer badge for improved feel. The fairway woods and hybrids offer golfers high-launching, forgiving options from all conditions.”

But it's not all about the G20. Also new to the family are the Anser wedge, Anser Milled putters and Sydney putter. Various Anser Milled putters – seven models in all – are in the bags of PING pros Hunter Mahan, Angel Cabrera, Lee Westwood, Louis Oosthuizen, Heath Slocum and others. With the Anser Milled Series, PING updates the original Anser design of company founder Karsten Solheim.

The new designs, all precision-milled from 303 stainless steel, offer various hosel configurations to match specific stroke types and feature intricate design details to build upon the performance that has contributed to more than 500 tour wins and 26 major victories since 1966.

PING have also introduced its ‘Fit for Stroke’ putter fitting concept. Every PING putter is balanced to fit a stroke type: straight, slight arc or strong arc. Each putter will include a shaft label indicating its matching stroke type.

Extensive player and robot testing have offered overwhelming proof that when a golfer’s putter balance matches their stroke type, their consistency improves and they make more putts.
