Ping waited almost 2 years to unveil a new G series driver and finally the Ping G15 Driver was upgraded to the G20.
This Ping G20 Driver lends itself to be the perfect blend of forgiveness and power. Changes from its predecessor include a heavier head weigh and improved Titanium material that has a ratio of Ti 8-1-1. This accounts for better clubhead strength and more manageable weight ratio. The external weighting pads add better launch conditions and balance to the driver.
It basically looks like a cross between the G15 (my current driver) and the more recent K15. They're using a new titanium (Ti 8-1-1) with a higher strength/weight ratio and have increased the overall face size and MOI of the driver.
best price Ping G20 Driver made its public debut last week at the PGA Tour's FedEx St. Jude Classic. (The club will be available at retail in mid-August.) Three pros—defending champ Lee Westwood, Kirk Triplett and D.J. Brigman—added it to their arsenal for Thursday's first round. Expect to see more G20 drivers on Tour throughout the summer.
The company's "game-improvement" drivers are almost always among the highest-rated sticks in Golf Magazine's annual "ClubTest" program because of their ability to blend forgiveness and power. The reconfigured clubhead — 5 percent higher moment of inertia on heel or toe hits — combines with a light, 45.75-inch "high-balance point" shaft (TFC 169D or TFC 169D Tour) to boost clubhead speed and, thus, distance.
In total, G20 launches shots 0.75 degrees higher than cheap ping g15 driver, with 200 rpm less spin and 1 mph faster ball speed on center hits, which adds up to five yards more carry and roll.
