FLYING LOW PING G30 LS TEC DRIVER Available February 12; RRP: $540; ping.com P ING’S popular G30 series of drivers is expanding to include a low-spin model, best suited to high-swing speed golfers seeking an even lower- spinning driver. The G30 LS Tec (Low-Spin Technology) driver provides a unique combination of low, stable spin with a high moment of inertia for added distance with accuracy and control. Crown ‘turbulators’ reduce aerodynamic drag to help increase clubhead speed and ball velocity for added distance, and the lofts are adjustable up to one degree in either direction. The T9S titanium alloy face is thin to maximise deflection for increasing ball speeds and distance. “With the addition of the LS Tec, all golfers now have a G30 driver fit for their game,” says John A. Solheim, Ping’s chairman and chief executive. “It’s engineered with less spin and an extremely high moment of inertia to deliver the industry-leading distance and accuracy of the standard G30 driver. Our engineers met the difficult challenge of reducing spin while maintaining forgiveness across the face.” A sole weight positions the centre of gravity extremely low and back (slightly forward of the standard G30 driver) to generate low, stable spin (approximately 400rpm less) with a high moment of inertia for exceptional flight control and distance on off-centre strikes. The high-balance-point TFC 419D shaft has a centre of gravity closer to the grip end, promoting a simultaneous increase in the clubhead’s energy, momentum and inertia. OTG Specs: Available in 9° and 10.5° lofts with five settings (+0.6°, +1°, -0.6° and -1°), fitted with Ping TFC 419D graphite shaft (soft R, R, S, X flexes). Also available (for $580): Tour 65 and Tour 80 (R, S, X flexes) shafts for low spin with a stable feel.
