For everyone from beginners to Tour players, the combination of a large, forgiving head, Trajectory Tuning™ Technology, and a speed-generating shaft makes the adjustable G25 driver a sound choice for improving distance and accuracy off the tee. You can add or subtract one-half degree of loft on the standard 8.5°, 9.5°, 10.5° and 12° settings to optimize launch conditions for maximum distance.
The 460cc Ti 8-1-1 head is PING’s longest and most forgiving, a confidence-inspiring design for gaining yards with the highest degree of accuracy.
The ability to fine-tune trajectory makes it easy to optimize launch angle and spin rate for maximizing distance. Using a PING torque wrench, you can add or subtract 1/2 degree of loft to the 8.5°, 9.5°, 10.5° and 12° degree heads.
The lightweight adjustable hosel has the same outer diameter and mass of PING's traditional fixed hosels and provides the benefits of adjustability (±1/2°) without sacrificing the performance that’s often lost in clubs with larger, bulkier hosel designs. It is highly aerodynamic for generating clubhead speed and ball velocity to achieve greater distance.
Structural reinforcements in the crown, sole and skirt lend support and provide a solid feel and sound.
To generate longer drives, the TFC 189D features extreme high-balance-point technology, which places the CG closer to the grip end, enabling you to swing a clubhead with more mass at the same speed, generating faster ball speeds for longer tee shots.
|Loft||Length||Offset||Lie||Head Weight||Head Size||Swing Weight||Dexterity|
|TFC 189D||Soft Regular||5.5°||48g||High|
|Tour Stiff||4.2°||60g||Low Mid|
To get the most distance from your driver, you must optimize the launch angle and spin rate of the ball by selecting the proper loft and the shaft flex for your swing speed. Generally, golfers with slower swing speeds require more lofted drivers and more flexible shafts to achieve the proper launch conditions. Conversely, golfers with faster swing speeds generally require lower lofted drivers and firmer shafts.
A trained fitter can help you get the most out of each drive by observing the ball flight of shots hit with different loft and shaft specifications, and recommending the combination that creates the best trajectory shape for maximum distance.

|360 ID8||The 360 ID8 grip utilizes all the same features as the ID8, but is a round grip to function with drivers and fairway woods featuring PING's adjustable loft technology.|
|360 ID8 Full Cord||The 360 ID8 Full Cord is a round grip designed to function with drivers and fairway woods featuring PING's adjustable loft technology. It features a firmer texture in the upper portion to help control direction, a softer texture in the lower portion for enhanced feel, and soft cord to enhance traction.|
PING offers a variety of grip sizes and styles to fit different hand sizes and texture preferences. Since grip size influences your wrist action, and therefore the direction of your shots, it is commonly used by fitters to affect ball flight.
PING color-coded grips are available in six different diameters, and can be further customized with grip tape according to your needs. Once the neutral grip color code has been determined based on hand measurements, golfers may consider smaller diameter grips to help control fades and slices, or larger diameter grips to help control draws and hooks.
Unlocking your ability to fine-tune trajectory through a lightweight, streamlined adjustable-hosel design makes it easy to optimize launch conditions for maximum distance. It’s the largest-profile, most forgiving head design PING has ever developed.
Using a PING wrench, you can add or subtract one-half degree of loft. The adjustable-hosel design maintains the same outer diameter and mass of PING’s fixed hosels. Ultra-thin crown technology distributes weight to the perimeter, positions the CG lower and farther back than any PING driver to date, and increases MOI. Our TFC 189D high-balance-point shaft helps generate clubhead speed and ball velocity, resulting in longer drives.
Loft can be adjusted ±½°, allowing you to fine-tune trajectory and maximize distance with accuracy. Brad Schweigert, Director of Engineering, introduces PING's longest, most forgiving driver design to date.
