We all saw Tom Lewis bounding down the fairways of Royal St George’s with his PING emblazoned cap and bag – and the GM inbox was inundated with requests to know what he was using.
Well, we answered it in the way of an In the Bag article – and now, on the strength of Tour players’ enthusiasm for the new family and Anser Milled putters, PING have launched the G20 range to the public. Headline act? The ping g20 driver, already in the bag of Bubba Watson, ángel Cabrera and Miguel Angel Jimenez.
“There’s a lot of new technology in the entire G20 family,” said PING chairman and CEO John Solheim. “Our engineers optimised the clubs to fit and benefit golfers of all skill levels.
“In the driver, we’re using for the first time a titanium alloy called Ti 8-1-1, which allows us to improve the weighting to better optimise the entire clubhead. When combined with our new, proprietary high-balance-point shaft, our testing shows significant improvements in energy transfer, which leads to longer, straighter drives.
“The PING G20 irons cheap are more forgiving and feature a cavity design that includes an elastomer badge for improved feel. The fairway woods and hybrids offer golfers high-launching, forgiving options from all conditions.”
But it's not all about the Ping Anser Forged Irons. Also new to the family are the Anser wedge, Anser Milled putters and Sydney putter. Various Anser Milled putters – seven models in all – are in the bags of PING pros Hunter Mahan, Angel Cabrera, Lee Westwood, Louis Oosthuizen, Heath Slocum and others. With the Anser Milled Series, PING updates the original Anser design of company founder Karsten Solheim.
