2013 PING G25 Driver and Fairway Woods Spotted!

Published

on

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.

Take a look at the photos below, and click here for more discussion and photos of Watson and Mahan’s range session in the forums.

    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

    I LOVE my G15 driver but this is one Ping I will take a hard look at.

    Love the flat black. This is the one I will wait on. Been thinking about changing my R9. Ive had the G5 and G10 and liked them both.

    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.

    Ping is mass produced like most companies but have a great reputation as being one of the best quality out there! Don’t knock em til you try em!

    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.

    I think Purist Paul is what we call this time of year a Troll-lol-lol-lol-lol.

    Ping did a nice job with these aesthetically. I’ll give them a look for sure.

    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.

    Pretty inferior in the adjustability department compared to Titleist/Cobra/Nike. Not worth the 100 extra bucks it will cost you!

    Why would you want to get it “pink like Bubbas??!” Lame. When I walk by the Apple store I’ll be sure to waive! LMFAO

    Are they going to make an I25?

  16. WOW

    How can we get it in pink like Bubbas??!

    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!

    How much? $299 or $399?

    $299 – its in my bag
    $399 – It would be hard to replace my G20

    • dht0013

      you know its going to be $399. They always are. When nobody buys them at $399, they’ll drop to $299. Ping never fails. They are soooo predictable!

      Actually the Ping Map will be $349.99 and the will sell

    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.

    Guess what guys… I’ll still wax every one of you hitting persimmon. Good luck to you with this hollow piece of garbage.

      Dec 1, 2012 at 1:30 am

      I guess that’s why so many pros use persimmon still. Oh wait. They’re all using the so called “hollow garbage” 🙂

      • Purist Paul

        Dec 1, 2012 at 11:00 am

        Pros can’t even hit 50% of their fairways with these hollow pieces of garbage. What chance do you have? I’m sticking with persimmon

        • SunnyD

          Dec 1, 2012 at 1:37 pm

          Are you making millions playing golf with your persimmon woods? Probably not…

    • Christian

      Dec 5, 2012 at 7:23 pm

      Man Tiger Woods sure sucks for using these hollow things hu? Just shut up, you’re worse than a hipster.

    Looks like Poulter is hitting a titleist utility club

    I’m so glad they decided to go black like the rest of their products! Looks so menacing and brilliant.

      I agree but i am not the biggest fan of the design. I like the look of the I20’s better and hope that the I25;s will be a lot better.

  24. Blanco

    Nov 29, 2012 at 12:15 am

    Oh by the way PING– PLEASE offer a few shaft options on the fairways! PLEASE!

  25. Blanco

    Nov 28, 2012 at 10:32 pm

    Raaaawr– Wonder how they designed the head as far as spin goes, especially compared to G20, Anser…

    Love it!! I have the Anser and I can’t wait to see how it compares to this. No frills…just good quality clubs from Ping as always.

What Adam Scott said about his new 681.AS irons

Published

on

Adam Scott has used the same irons — Titleist Forged 680 — for the better part of 10 years.

“When you’re old and stubborn, you like what you like,” the 41-year-old told PGATOUR.COM.

Indeed, as he has transitioned into Titleist’s latest woods and wedges, the 14-time PGA TOUR winner has remained steadfast in playing his 2003 680 irons with KBS Tour 130 X shafts.

It was interesting, then, to see Scott with a different — but very similar — set of irons in the bag ahead of THE CJ CUP @ SUMMIT.

Adam Scott’s trust Titleist 680 8-iron

Scott’s new 681.AS Forged 8-iron

At a glance, the visually stunning irons look identically shaped to the 680s we’re used to seeing in Scott’s bag — similar large muscle pad on the rear of the club, similar hosel transition, similar generous amount of offset, similar topline. However, the irons looked substantially less worn and were stamped with 681.AS on the hosel.

What’s going on here?

Titleist declined to comment, but PGATOUR.COM caught up with Scott, who shared some details. As it turns out the new irons are the same…sort of.

Before digging into the 681.AS, we asked Scott why he doesn’t simply continue playing 680 irons, and when a set wears out, replace them with another. The answer, he said, was simple. Titleist “just ran out of original sets,” which the company stopped producing in 2005.

What to do? Scour eBay and used club stores? Frequent garage sales?

Scott indicated Titleist engineers took a different tack: They made CAD (computer-aided design) copies of his beloved 680s and CNC-machined what he called, “basically the same clubs.”

“Thanks to technology,” he said, “they’re as exact a replica as you can get, but with the way they’ve been made, I could argue it’s a more solid head with a more solid strike.

“I’ve been stuck on the 680s for a long time now,” he added. “…We’ve tried some stuff here and there. We tried bending the 620 MBs earlier this year, which I actually used at the Masters. I’ve been looking for 12 months for that new fresh set with good feel in the hands and good vibes, and we just couldn’t get there, so they took this project on.”

He continued: “It’s very nice for me that Titleist was able to do that. I know what I know. I’ve played it so long, I’m at a point where I think it’s detrimental to go searching and trying to change. I know how I play, and I know what I need to play well.”
