    I might be color blind, but it looks like his lob wedge is a different dot than his irons.

    Is this common for pros/ping staffers?

    Talk about a perfect start to the G30 product launch. Ping can go ahead and print out tons of Carbera/G30 tour winning driver and fairway on all the marketing leading into the retail G30 launch later this year.

    Love watching Cabrera play. Great swing and touch around the green.

    Wish they would release the i25 2 iron to the public.

    Forget the lengths, lies, and shafts.

    Look at his swing weights!
    D4 instead of stock D3 in the driver.
    D4 instead of stock D1 in the 3w.
    D3 instead of D1 for 3-9i.

    I find it very interesting how most of the pros swing heavier and shorter clubs compared to “stock public offerings”.

      Pros have a much stronger swing than most amateurs so frequently they like a heavier club to help maintain their rhythm.

    the driver is 45.25……………

    The Rogue in the photo says 70, not 80?

    I believe his 3 wood has the Rogue not the RIP..

    Hey PING! When one of your staff players (Angel Cabrera), a guy skilled enough to have a Green Jacket, a US Open Trophy, and shoot two 64’s on the weekend to win The Greenbrier is playing your Driver at 45.25″ length… don’t you think you should reconsider the stock length of your PING drivers (currently at 45.75″)? I don’t think the rest of us are as good as Angel… so hitting the sweet spot at 1/2″ longer shaft length than he plays is going to be tough.

      You think too much!

      Some people don’t struggle with that much consistency and look for more distance gains. Some people are the opposite and need shorter drivers. That’s why everything is custom built through the fitting process with PING fitter. “stock” lengths are just starting points for a fitter

    • wcavanau

      Because Cabrera doesn’t need distance. Every driver on the market claims to be the longest because that’s what sells. If you want a shorter length, i’m sure Ping would build it for you.

    • billm311

      Agreed. I routinely play a slightly shorter than industry average driver length. The recent trend of distance over all else is causing this lengthening of woods and strengthening of iron lofts. Also, not sure what the specs are on the new G30, but I had a G20 for a while, and when I tried to cut the length down, it really threw off the balance and feel of the club. Ping drivers are usually heavier in the head, so longer shaft helps achieve a more traditional swing weight.

      I now use a Nike, and it is also head heavy. Proper custom fitting solved that issue though, allowing a 45″ shaft at D3/4 swing weight. get that sledgehammer effect going!

    Wow 1st week out. Imagine if TMAG won every week it released a new driver?

  14. Desmond

    Jul 6, 2014 at 8:16 pm

    The G30 goes on the demo list…

  15. JJ

    Jul 6, 2014 at 6:59 pm

    The Lord angle on his putter is 21 degrees?

    • JJ

      Jul 6, 2014 at 7:00 pm

      *lie angle.

    • Desmond

      Jul 6, 2014 at 8:15 pm

      Probably 71 lie angle … typo

      • S

        Jul 6, 2014 at 11:50 pm

        Ping does lie angles on putters from vertical down. Therefore, 21* for ping = 69* for Scotty Cameron for example.

    His driver is 45.25″… Try reading.

    • Justin

      Jul 6, 2014 at 10:51 pm

      They fixed the typo, geez. It was shorter than the 3 wood when the article was first posted

  17. paul

    Jul 6, 2014 at 6:43 pm

    That was a quick win for the new G30.

  18. Jesse

    Jul 6, 2014 at 6:33 pm

    Any reason why his driver is shorter then his 3 wood? 42.5 vs 43 degree? Seems odd

    • Jesse

      Jul 6, 2014 at 6:34 pm

      inches**

      Jul 6, 2014 at 6:38 pm

      That’s the first thing I noticed. I wanted to know his driver because he was bombing it out there
