PING'S ADAPTIVE FITTING PROGRAM

Custom Fit. Custom Built: PING’s Adaptive Fitting Program

From the day our company was founded more than 50 years ago, PING has been a pioneer in custom club-fitting and a leading innovator in club design. So it’s only natural that PING would enthusiastically embrace an Adaptive Fitting Program that custom-fits physically challenged golfers with specialized PING technology built exclusively for them. We are currently the only major golf club manufacturer with an organized adaptive fitting effort.

 

PING’s Adaptive Fitting Program can assist a variety of special-needs golfers, including:

 
  • Those who play from a wheelchair
  • Golfers playing from an assistive cart
  • Amputees
  • Stroke survivors
  • People who are convalescing
  • Seniors
  • Blind golfers
  • Little people
 

In addition to building one-of-a-kind equipment as needed, PING engineers have experience making special accommodations in these areas:

 
  • Length – +3" to -3" can be built as standard product. Most lengths are possible through our PING Wrx department. Extreme lengths we’ve built recently: a 57” driver, and irons at 22".
  • Lie – +6 degrees to -5.25 degrees can be built as standard product, +10 degrees to -10 degrees can be done through PING Wrx.
  • Weight – Weight can be added to the head using lead tape, tungsten or heavy CTP weights. Weight can sometimes be removed by using very light CTP weights or by grinding.
  • BigLite2 Grip – Nearly 2 inches in diameter. Built through PING Wrx.
  • BigLite Mid-size Jumbo Grip – A grip bigger than our Orange color code but smaller than the BigLite2. Available through PING Wrx.
  • QUANTUM GRIP™ Velcro® grip and gloves – giving golfers a firm hold of the club for more confidence while swinging. Available through PING Wrx. Visit www.quantumgrip.com for more info.
  • A special device has been created to help a player who cannot grip the club at all, e.g. a player with two prosthetic arms. Call Ping Wrx for details.
  • Shaft Flex – In general, a very light, flexible shaft will benefit most golfers who have a slow swing speed.

PING introduces the Color Coding System. This system distinguishes the lie angle of the club with a colored dot in the cavity. Golfers quickly see how having the right lie angle helps their game and begin to identify themselves with their particular color code.
