We spotted Hunter Mahan and Bubba Watson using Ping’s new G25 driver and fairway woods on the range at the World Challenge hosted by Tiger Woods at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

Mahan was hitting a G25 Driver (9.5 degrees) as well as a 15-degree G25 fairway wood.

Watson was playing a G25 Driver with his signature pink crown and graphics (8.5 degrees) and a 16.5-degree G25 fairway wood.

The driver has the same adjustability as Ping’s Anser Driver (0.5 degrees higher or lower than stamped loft) and is scheduled to be available at retail in mid-February.

  1. I was hitting a 9 degree Ping G15 driver (less than a year old) and it was a wonderful club. It was staight ,long and accurate for me. Some glue came loose in the head and there became a slight rattle. I had the golf shop send it back to Ping to be fixed and 2 weeks later I received back a new 9.5 degree G25. I have hit it at the indoor range and on the launch monitor and the numbers and accuracy were better than my old G15. I am looking forward to getting outside once the snow is gone and hitting it. Thanks Ping, you have made a wonderful club in the G25 driver and to get it for the price of postage was a real bonus

  2. Hey Persimmon…..sorry I mean Purist Paul, my friend Balata Bob has a gross of Titleist 384 wound balata tour balls in his garage for you! You can place bid on eBay and get a good deal so you don’t damage your furniture with modern day technology.

  3. The people who are calling ping drivers ugly are lost. Since the G 5 they are as traditional looking as any of the top drivers on the market. I looked at them next to Titeleist and see very litte that is distracting. I think Taylor made, Callaway and the retro looking Clevelands are far more weird looking……. but then I play i20 from woods to irons and they are some of the best if not the best on the maket right now.

  4. I do like what PING continues to do. These clubs look great, but since I dented the face on 2 G20 drivers I have moved on to GEEK GOLF Drivers. Can’t wait to see how far Bubba hits these next season.

  5. Bubba’s Pepto-pink clubhead gives me a migraine just looking at it… but he can hit it further than me anytime, so I guess I have to be jealous. LOL I love the piano black look because it’s easy to clean, and I treat my clubheads with Rain-X for that reason. Looks like I’m getting a new driver next year, if this thing hits as mean as it looks!

  6. Finally a good looking Ping driver! Now they have caught up to the clean look and forgiveness of the TM Superquad from 2006. It will be nice to own a Ping club. Hopefully this minimalism will lead to some clean forged musclebacks.
