This compact, multi-material players' iron offers more control over pre-impact face alignment to enhance workability while increasing forgiveness -- a unique combination. The 17-4 stainless steel heads offer appealing, confidence-inspiring geometry and a clean cavity design. A tungsten toe weight increases MOI for improved accuracy, and a stabilizing bar provides distance control. The precision-machined face, grooves and back cavity ensure quality for consistent performance.

  • Optimized CG

    A larger Custom Tuning Port sits deeper in the head to locate the CG low for high-launching long irons. Made of soft elastomer, the CTP also contributes to the softer feel that is expected in a players' iron.

  • Stabilizing Bar

    The stabilizing bar is narrower in the long irons to launch the ball higher with greater ball speed. The bar is wider in the shorter irons for a lower ball flight with optimal spin.

  • Tungsten Toe Weighting

    A tungsten toe weight stabilizes the head at impact to increase forgiveness for improved accuracy.

PING offers a variety of shaft flexes in steel and graphite to meet your needs and preferences. Selecting the proper shaft flex for your swing will help you get the most distance and accuracy from every shot. Generally, players with faster swing speeds require stiffer shafts to keep the ball trajectory lower, while players with slower swing speeds will require more-flexible shafts to produce a higher ball trajectory.

The choice of steel or graphite shafts is usually based on preferences for weight and/or feel. Players seeking a lighter overall weight and/or a softer feel in their irons may prefer graphite shafts, while players who prefer a standard-weight club with a firmer feel may prefer steel shafts.

We recommend that you get fit for the shaft that allows you to play your best golf. Whether that’s a softer, lighter shaft with a higher launch or a heavier, stiffer shaft with a lower trajectory, a PING Certified Club Fitter can help you find the shaft that brings consistency to your game.

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.

A compact, multi-material players' model, the S55 iron provides added distance with control while offering a unique combination of improved workability and forgiveness. Available in 3-PW, the 17-4 stainless steel heads feature a tungsten toe weight to increase forgiveness, and a vertical stabilizing bar for precise distance control and a solid sound and feel at impact.

The long irons have a CG that is lower and farther back to launch the ball higher with greater ball speed for added distance. In the short irons, the CG is more forward to flight the ball lower with optimal spin. The larger custom tuning port (CTP) sits lower and deeper in the sole to optimize launch. And to ensure exceptional sound and feel at impact, the CTP is made from a thermoplastic elastomer. A machined face, grooves and back cavity, plus thin top lines, a compact head, and a brushed satin finish create a confidence-inspiring design. PING’s CFS steel shaft (control, feel, stability) comes standard, offering a mid-high launch.
