CATEGORY: Game Improvement Fairway Woods
WE TESTED: G in 3 (adjusts 13.5° to 15.5°), 5 (adjusts 16.5° to 18.5°), 7 (adjusts 19.5° to 21.5°) with Alta 55 graphite shaft; G SF Tec in 3 (adjusts 15° to 17°), 5 (adjusts 18° to 20°) with Alta 55 graphite shaft.
KEY TECHNOLOGY: The G SF Tec has more draw bias than the G, for players who typically miss right.
Great off the tee and fairway; cuts through rough, and good on tight lies; the G is a favorite for its shot-shaping ability; the G SF Tec gets the ball airborne more easily and produces more of a draw.
"These woods can turn bad golfers into better ones or average players into good ones."
As long or longer than most; remarkably consistent—maintains distance on mis-hits; players can swing aggressively, which nets extra yards.
Higher-handicappers might need more help in heavy rough; turbulators can be a turnoff; not for those who prefer a heavier head.
The highly-rated Ping G family eats up yardage while keeping you close to your target. The G version is a great fit for guys looking for a forgiving wood that can also shape shots.
