Hi everybody Donal here from Golfbidder.
We’ve come to Orlando Florida to The PGA Show. The world’s biggest show in golf.
All the major manufacturers are here. We’re going to make our way round the range
to bring you the very best, the very latest of what available
in the golf world. So check out all our videos on Golfbidder.
We’re at the Ping stand at the PGA Show 2011 with Brad from Ping.
Brad, how you doing? Pleased to meet you. We’re looking at the Ping G15 and K15 game
improvement irons. Brad, just give us the run down on these.
The G15 maybe first of all. Well the G15 is a game improvement iron that
is designed to work well for a wide range of golfers.
We’ve had a lot of success even on the Tour with this, several top end players are using
this product. But across players of all abilities it’s an
iron that’s really easy to use. It has a wide sole geometry that pulls the
CG back and makes it forgiving and makes it get up in the air a little easier.
It’s a club that is built around forgiveness, consistency and feel.
It’s just a really great product. Ok. Thanks. And now the K15?
The K15 is a multi material iron. Titanium face, even wider sole.
One of the things we were trying to achieve with this was to really make a club that’s
really easy to hit up in the air and forgiving. One of the key features of the K15 set is
that it comes standard with the hybrid options. One of the things we really tried to focus
on with the K15 is fitting the club beyond the entire set configuration.
We give the players the option to chose between the 4, 5 and 6 iron which are optional with
the hybrid choice. So if you go out and get a K15 set we’ll not
only fit you to the club itself but also to the set configuration.
Ok so what handicap range are these clubs aimed at?
Well the G15 set, you know I said we’ve got Tour players using them.
A lot of tour players use them in the 4 and 5 irons.
Yes, we have a lot of players using the longer irons.
There’s several players towards the end of last season we had about 8 or 9 guys using
this product. So there’s not really a limit on the low end
if guys like that are using it. And towards the high end it’s really built
as a game improvement product. I wouldn’t say it was designed specifically
for the needs of the Tour player, it’s been used effectively by a wide range of golfers.
I would say the G series product is something that can be used by players of all abilities.
Where the K15 is tailored towards the higher handicap needs so there’s some features on
it that make it not ideal for the lower handicap. Thanks for giving us the run down.
Well everybody, game improvement irons from Ping, the K15 and G15. Check them out on Golfbidder.
