What separates Ping clubs from some of the other major golf club makers? Some will say it is the fact that they rely on quality golf clubs rather than big advertisements. Ping does not release clubs every few months as some other brands, but when they do come out with a new club it definitely worth looking at.
When the Ping G15 came out there was a lot of talk about how long and accurate the club was hitting. With that being said let’s take a look at the G15 driver used by Lee Westwood.
The PING G15 is a 460-cc titanium driver targeted at golfers who want maximum forgiveness. It is recognized by many as the most forgiving driver Ping has ever developed.
The face of the driver is slightly larger than the face of the Ping G10, the head has been lengthened from front to back, and the weight saved by using an ultra-thin crown has been repositioned in an external sole weight. These changes give the club a higher Moment of Inertia (MOI), greater consistency across the hitting surface, and a center of gravity that is optimized to reduce spin and produce higher trajectories. Taken together, they promote greater ball speed and forgiveness, increasing the potential for longer, more accurate drives.
The PING G15 driver has a black crown has a subtle alignment aid, its sole is silver, black and red, and its two shaft choices are in coordinating shades of red and gray. Lengthening the head from front to back (to increase the club’s MOI) has caused it to be a bit more triangular-shaped. White grooves score the club face except in a V-shaped area which indicates the club’s sweet spot.
The G15 is available in 9, 10.5, 12.0 and 13.5 degree lofts
