Ping G20 Driver Release

Ping waited almost 2 years to unveil a new G series driver and finally the G15 was upgraded to the G20.  The first glimpse of this driver was at the St. Jude Classic where Ping Tour staff member showed it off during the practice rounds. Ping showed off the entire G20 series when they opened up their 2012 sales meeting to fans via online venues such as Twitter and Facebook. The G20 driver makes it’s debut into golf stores tomorrow, August 11th.

This driver lends itself to be the perfect blend of forgiveness and power. Changes from its predecessor include a heavier head weigh and improved Titanium material that has a ratio of Ti 8-1-1. This accounts for better clubhead strength and more manageable weight ratio. The external weighting pads add better launch conditions and balance to the driver.

What New Golf Clubs Is Ping Rolling Out This Summer?

Ping’s product cycle is ready to introduce a new driver to their golf club line up. Ping recently announced the launch of their latest driver the G20. It made it’s formal debut at the FedEx St. Jude Classic this week. It has also been spotted everywhere on the internet here, here, and here. However, this club is also not available until late summer for the rest of us to purchase it.

What to expect from Ping’s new driver is their usual blend of forgiveness and power. Unlike Adams new driver the 9088, the G20 is heavier than it’s predecessor the G15. Using the idea that the greater force at impact the better the power shots will be. Extending the face of the driver for better forgiveness and a better launch area for off center hits.

Ping is a brand that has always stuck with the classics. While all the other manufacturers are our designing a putter collection of all shapes and sizes, Ping has stuck with a simplistic approach. Ping’s latest line of Anser putters goes back to the basics.

First off these putters have been machine milled from 303 stainless steel. With no gimmicks in sight, the putters don’t even have names they are only identified by numbers from 1 to 5 and the original only bears the name Anser. The Anser is a revamped copy from the original collection made in 1966.

Back to their classic styling, all 6 of the new putters are blades. The differentiation comes in the weighting and balance through the different configurations through the neck and hosel.

Aligning with their new iPING app all the putters will be put into 3 stroke categories: Straight, Slight Arc, and Strong Arc. These names correspond to the balance of each putter in the Anser line. Specifically, the degree of toe hang from each model. This will help golfers understand the putter balance and easily choose what type of putter best fits their stroke style.

The new Anser line of putters should arrive in retail stores August 11, 2011.
