We look at how the 'G' range has developed following the launch of the Ping G30 driver
The Ping G2 represented a huge leap forwards from the TiSI driver before it. The 460cc head was combined with internal weighting to reduce spin and increase launch angle.
The shape of the G5 remained similar to the G2 but 8 grams of weight was moved from the crown and face and into the sole to lower spin rates once again
A taller face and deeper crown produced a higher moment-of-inertia (MOI) for greater forgiveness. A draw version of the head was introduced to help promote a right-to-left ball flight thanks to weighting placed closer to the heel
A larger face was designed on the Ping G15 to provide consistency across the entire hitting surface. This was combined with a new high balance point shaft to offer higher ball speeds and increased MOI
External weighting on the Ping G20 helped to launch the ball higher but without adding spin. The head was made more aerodynamic to reduce drag and increase club speed.
On the G25 driver, a new matte-black finish to the head was combined with loft adjustability for the first time, allowing an increase or decrease of 0.5 degrees
Turbulators have been added to the Ping G30 driver crown to help it cut through the air and increase ball speeds as a result. Adjustability now allows the head to be set in five positions ranging from up a degree to down a degree.
