Equipment news: Ping launch new G30 adjustable fairwaysJuly, 2014 Golf Equipment
The fairways feature Turbulator Technology and are designed to offer extra distance without compromising on accuracy
5 Ping’s new G30 fairway woods feature Turbulator Technology to improve the aerodynamics and increase distance.
Engineered on to the crown, the turbulators reduce aerodynamic drag by significantly delaying airflow separation, maintaining attached airflow around the clubhead as it approaches impact, leading to more speed.
“The turbulators are really exciting,” said John Solheim, Ping’s chairman and CEO. “Wind-tunnel testing verified with clarity the role they play in reducing drag on the driver head, but its real benefit was confirmed through our player testing.”
Faster ball speeds and greater distance come from a larger face made of a uniform-thickness Carpenter 475 steel, creating a thin but strong hitting surface that maximises face deflection – this type of steel is 44 per cent stronger than 17-4 stainless steel.
Crown turbulators create a captured appearance with the ball, and help with aim and alignment to inspire confidence. Weight saved by thinning the face was redistributed to optimise the CG and elevate MOI for added forgiveness. Launch angle and spin can be fine-tuned by adding or subtracting up to 1˚ with Ping’s five-setting Trajectory Tuning+ Technology, utilising a lightweight hosel. This offers adjustments of +0.6°, +1°, -0.6°, and -1°.

The high-balance-point TFC 419F shaft has a CG closer to the grip end, promoting a simultaneous increase in energy, momentum and inertia for longer, straighter results.
Models: 3 (14.5º), 5 (18º), 7 (21º) – adjustable +- 6/10 or 1˚
Shaft: Ping TFC 419F (Soft R, R, S, X)
