The new Ping G30 range - including drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons - was unveiled on July 3.

Above, Ping ambassador Bubba Watson gets custom fitted for the G30 driver, as well as giving his first impressions on the new model.

Watson, who won the 2014 Masters in impressive style, records a 360-yard plus drive with his first hit of the G30 driver.

Turbulators help aerodynamics, a new face enables greater flex and a new GC position - along with other fators - contribute to increased distance.
