Hybrid technology takes a leap forward, highlighted by the G hybrids' innovative tiered internal sole, which helps activate face flexing to power the ball off the face faster for greater distance. The ultra-thin crown allows for a low-back center of gravity to ensure high launch, reduced spin and a higher MOI for maximizing forgiveness.
More than twice as strong as cast 17-4 stainless, this high-strength steel is precision-machined to variable thickness, which saves weight and maximizes flexing to generate faster speeds across the face for consistently longer results. Like the G fairway woods, a unique process adds friction to the face to reduce spin.
This innovative structure is engineered to activate flexing so the ball deflects faster off the face for added distance.
Weight saved by thinning the crown is utilized to position the center of gravity low and back for high launch with reduced spin and longer, more accurate results.
Crown turbulators and contrasting grooves on the face help provide a captured look and assist in aim and alignment, creating a consistently centered impact position.

PING offers a variety of graphite shafts to optimize your ball flight for the best possible feel and performance. PING’s proprietary shafts are engineered to complement our head designs so that you can optimize your trajectories for predictable results.
Generally, the same shaft flex as your irons in graphite will produce the optimal trajectory in hybrids, but it is not uncommon for players to have a different shaft brand, type and/or flex in their hybrids.
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.
|Grip||Size | Color Code||Description|
|PING 5L||The 5L grip features a firmer texture in the upper portion to help control direction and a softer texture in the lower portion for enhanced feel. It is available in two versions - round for clubs with PING's Trajectory Tuning+ Technology, and ribbed for the hybrids and irons.|
|PING 5L Cord||The 5L cord grip features a firmer texture in the upper portion to help control direction and a softer texture in the lower portion for enhanced feel. Cord construction provides an extra-secure grip in all conditions. It is available in two versions - round for clubs with PING's Trajectory Tuning+ Technology, and ribbed for the hybrids and irons.|
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.
Faster ball speeds are generated by an innovative tiered internal sole structure that facilitates flexing of the Carpenter 455 precision-machined face to optimize launch conditions for consistently longer results.
By thinning the crown, PING engineers positioned the center of gravity low-back to provide high launch with reduced spin and maximum forgiveness for greater distance. Turbulators on the crown and a contrasting groove pattern simplify aim and alignment, creating a consistently centered impact position.
As Lee Westwood demonstrates, the G hybrids produce faster ball speeds and high launch with low spin for longer carries. And he agrees: crown turbulators make it look tough.
