A game improvement driver for all handicap golfers with high launch & carry characteristics and a large, thin face, the Ping G20 Pink Driver has been adopted by Tour stars like Bubba Watson, Angel Cabrera and Miguel Angel Jimenez, and if it's good enough for them.

One of the reasons is that Ping's external weighting positions the centre of gravity for high launch and low spin to maximise both distance and accuracy giving this golf club a broad appeal among all handicappers and the additional appeal of this limited edition Pink driver will make this highly sought after.

The large 460cc clubhead is made from a lighter, lower-density titanium alloy with a high strength-to-weight ratio which allows additional weight to be re-positioned to increase the MOI on both the vertical and horizontal axes. An external weight optimises the centre of gravity position to generate high launch and low spin to give both distance and accuracy, golf equipment for sale while weight savings from varying wall thicknesses in the crown and body are positioned to optimise performance and durability. The variable-thickness face generates faster ball speeds and increased MOI for maximum forgiveness.

The Ping G20 Driver has a slightly wider face than the G15 and at address the head appears bigger, Ping G15 irons although not quite as large as the K15. This is achieved by a shallower crown and also visually by a lighter metallic silver finish. It's interesting that Ping have moved away from black to something slightly lighter. It does look very good but is a little more reflective in bright conditions when compared to the previous black colour.

The size and shape of the longer head look much better than the G15 and the sound and feel at impact were excellent and the ball took off on a slightly higher but more penetrating trajectory than the G15. Tthe G20 Driver also comes with Ping's own TFC 169D shaft that seems a little more stable than in the past thanks to the higher kick point and feels quite powerful. There is also a Tour version of the shaft that will give you a lower trajectory and this will be excellent for those with higher swing speeds, so make sure you get custom fitted as the combination of shaft and loft will be important.

I really liked the G20 driver and the enhancements are all excellent and I think it is the best Ping driver since the G5 so it is well worth checking it out.
