PLAYABILITY

Super easy to hit—kicks butt from all kinds of lies and carves through the rough; creating shots isn’t a problem if you’ve got the talent.

“These belong in the pantheon of hybrids: plenty long, forgiving and easy to hit.”

DISTANCE

One of the best; a number of guys pick up a half club more than normal on solid hits; testers get consistent carry into the green.

CONS

Not quite as forgiving as the top models; trajectory tends to be a little lower than some testers prefer; not everyone loves the “turbulators” on the crown.

BOTTOM LINE

The Ping G is one of the highest-rated hybrids. It provides balanced feel, length and playability for a range of players.
