An external sole weight helps optimize the CG for high-launch, low-spin drives that travel far. Weight is strategically placed in the 460cc head to increase the MOI and locate the CG for optimal launch. A large, thin face produces fast ball speeds for greater distance with extreme forgiveness.
This weight optimizes the center of gravity to generate high launch and low spin for longer drives.
The large, thin clubface delivers faster ball speeds for greater distance, and performance is consistent across the entire hitting surface.
Forgiveness is high in both the vertical and horizontal axes because of the wide head profile. The result is longer, more accurate drives, even when the ball is struck off-center.

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.

|PING ID8||A soft rubber grip with dog-bone texture that offers enhanced control, the PING ID8 is our standard grip. Available in six color-coded sizes for golfers with different hand sizes.|

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.
You’ll hit longer, straighter tee shots with the engineering that makes the G15 such a reliable performer. The large head profile increases the moment of inertia for maximum forgiveness across the hitting surface. An external sole weight on the 460cc titanium head optimizes the CG to help you launch it high with reduced spin.
Patented ultra-thin crown technology saved weight, which was re-distributed to the external sole weight pad to increase the MOI and position the CG for high launch. PING’s TFC 149D high-balance-point shaft allows for an increase in head mass (without increasing swing weight or overall weight), which results in faster ball speeds and a high MOI for longer tee shots.
