Ping G430 LST

Perez has pretty much a full bag of Ping clubs at the moment. He starts by using the Ping G430 LST driver which has nine degrees of loft and it is fitted with a Fujikura Ventus 6X shaft which has proven to be very popular out on Tour.

The G430 LST driver got five stars in our testing because it is a hugely impressive driver that does a great job of balancing distance with consistency. It is a low spin driver with a truly broad appeal that has the high tech looks and powerful feel to match the all round performance


Ping G430 Max

Perez then also carries two Ping G430 Max fairway woods with 18 and 21 degrees of loft, and both are fitted with Mitsubishi Tensei Blue 85-TX shafts. The G430 Max is a long yet easy-to-use fairway wood and will be many golfers favorite in the 2023 season thanks to its versatility and high launch characteristics. A new carbon crown gives this fairway the looks to match the playing experience.


Ping i59

Moving on to the irons, Perez had been playing a combo set of Ping irons for a long time, the iBlade's and Blueprint irons but this has changed of late. From four-iron down to wedge, he now carries a set of the Ping i59's. 

The i59 replaced the iBlade and the design has evolved significantly - we’re now seeing a hollow head with an aluminum core that improves feel and moves more weight to the edges for added forgiveness. With the i59, Ping created a faster feeling and more playable better player iron over iBlade that delivers improved consistency across the face that in testing produced more accurate approach shots. All of his irons are fitted with Nippon Modus 3 Tour 120X shafts.


Titleist Vokey SM9, Titleist Vokey WedgeWorks

Perez did have three Ping wedges in the bag for a while but he has changed this setup recently. He looks to have changed all three to Titleist Vokey models. His 50 degree wedge is a Vokey SM9 whereas his 54 and 60 degree models are both Vokey WedgeWorks prototypes. 


Ping Sigma 2 ZB

Finally Perez has a Ping Sigma 2 ZB putter in the bag and this has been in there for a while now. It has a blade design and the ZB look has been part of Ping's putter range for many years. The heel-shafted weighting is engineered to fit players with more rotation in their stroke and those who have a pull tendency.


Titleist Pro V1

Finally Perez uses a Titleist Pro V1 ball. One of the best golf balls money can buy, the Pro V1 got five stars in our review and it is easy to see why. It provides superb all-round performance with impressive distance in the long game, excellent control into the greens and high levels of consistency throughout with a soft feel. It was also particularly impressive when playing in the wind.
