The PING G30 hybrid redefined my expectations about consistency in a hybrid. Easy to hit, plenty long, and a great choice for all levels of golfers.
Calling PING's G30 series a game improvement" line may have been fair at one point in time, but it's a concept that's due to be retired. With the G30 driver winning the FedEx Cup - and being the longest driver on tour - and plenty of G30 fairway woods and hybrids in play, it's time to call the line what it is: clubs that offer incredible forgiveness and high-level performance.
"Man, I'm tired of the ball landing in the same place over and over" -No one. Ever.
As I said at the beginning, the word that defines the G30 hybrid is "consistency." Good swings, bad swings, pure strikes, and mishits all seem to end up in the same spot with very similar ball flight. This is the club that people are talking about when they say, "Play hybrids, you'll hit them better than your long irons."
That unsurpassed forgiveness is what makes the G30 an excellent choice for high-handicap players, but there's a precision engineering to these clubs that will help put them in the bags of skilled players as well. Rather than just design one hybrid and increase or decrease the loft, each loft is engineered to produce optimal ball flight and distance through progressive offset and center of gravity. That means the 17° has a lower CoG to help get the ball in the air, but the 30° has a higher, more forward CoG is control spin. Bottom line: there's no one-size-fits-all design here, each club is engineered to perform at the highest level.
