Spotted: Tony Finau testing an unreleased Ping Forged iron

Published

on

Tony Finau was spotted at the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills testing an unreleased, unknown Ping utility iron.

What is the iron? If you check out this GolfWRX forum thread, members are saying its Ping’s new i500 iron, which is unconfirmed and strictly rumor.

What do we know about the iron? Nothing, aside from what we can see in the photos. They’re forged, they have a section in the toe that’s been milled out, and there’s a screw in the toe, likely showing that it has a hollow body construction, ala the Ping G700.

We’ll update you with more information as soon it becomes available. Until then, enjoy the images below.

    My G700’s are incredible. Two guy’s in my group today want me to fit them to a set. Long, high flying, and forgiving.

    Those look sweet. I already have them though, mine just have p790 on them. Maybe that is the part that was removed from the face.

    It is the PING I500. It follows the industry trend being a distance iron with jacked up lofts.
    The I210 and I500 are supposed to be out in July.

    That offset though…

      Agree, too much offset. Otherwise reminds of TMB 716, with tungsten weights and bore thru tapered shaft plug, that can be drilled out and more weight can be added. TMB is a very neat design IMO, too bad that technology makes them so expensive.

      Agree; however, I’ll reserve that judgement until I see the specs. Maybe the long irons have much more offset than the mid and short irons, per usual. I’ll compare them to my S55s that I’m loving.

    It’s the new i500 and its amazing. I’ve hit it and can confirm it’s really good.
