When Ping launched the Ping G20 Driver in 2011, it was proven to be one of the most forgiving drivers on the market. The new Ping G25 driver continues that trend. It is the largest-profile, most forgiving driver Ping have made and now features Ping's modern matt black finish.
Ping’s new G25 has a body that’s cast from a strong, light titanium alloy (Ti 8-1-1) and a clubface with variable geometry that’s machined from Ti 6-4. The Ping G25 has a larger face than the best price Ping G20 Driver, a lower, deeper center of gravity, and is more elongated from face to rear. These design features contribute to higher-launching shots that spin less, a higher MOI and more forgiveness.
Watson was playing a G25 Driver with his signature pink crown and graphics (8.5 degrees) and a 16.5-degree Ping G25 Fairway Wood. Ping says this is their largest-profile, most forgiving head design. According to Ping, "Golfers can optimize launch conditions for maximum distance through a lightweight, aerodynamic adjustable-hosel design using Trajectory TuningTechnology.
In addition, the G25 offers the same loft adjustments (+/- 0.5°) as Ping’s Anser driver. Ping engineers made structural reinforcements to the crown, sole and skirt in order to offer the G25 a solid feel and sound. Variable thickness behind the face powerfully transfers the energy of a players swing into the ball, producing fast ball speeds leading to greater distances off the tee.
Ping have developed the innovative TFC 189D shaft specifically for the Ping G25 Driver. This lightweight, high-balance point shaft has a new non-glare, charcoal finish to help eliminate reflections, improve alignment and inspire confidence at address.
