The iPING feature of the PING app provides golfers two options that lead to improved putting.
In Practice mode, you can focus on improving key attributes of your putting stroke, including tempo, to improve your consistency on the greens, the #1 key to holing more putts.
The Putting Handicap (PHcp) function analyzes a series of five putts to determine a consistency score, which equates to a handicap patterned after the traditional handicap system (lower is better). Each five-putt session is stored for comparison as you challenge yourself to lower your PHcp.
“When it was introduced a few years ago, iPING quickly distinguished itself as an important putting-improvement tool used by golfers of all abilities,” said David Solheim, PING Vice President overseeing App Development. “The current version simplifies the experience while offering the same benefit of improving consistency on the greens.”
iPING works in conjunction with an iPING cradle, which holds the mobile device and clips onto the putter shaft just below the grip. The cradle fits iPhone. Cradles can be purchased at PING-SHOP.com.
