GolfWRX Spotted: Ping i59 irons (exclusive in-hand pictures)

Published

This week, GolfWRX is on-site at the Wells Fargo Championship getting all of the inside equipment scoops from the tour vans, and early this morning we got the scoop of scoops with in-hand pictures of the highly anticipated new Ping i59 irons.

We first spotted these i59’s in the bag of Viktor Hovland a couple of weeks ago from a distance, and now, thanks to in-hand pictures (including some comparison shots) we can take a closer look.

Even with access to taking images, we don’t yet have any details of the technology from Ping, although there are a few things that can be deduced from the images we captured from the Wells Fargo.

  • They are clearly an “i” iron: The name alone gives us a lot of insight into the golfer this iron is targeted towards, and the i-Series has always been a “better players” iron with added forgiveness. The i59s clearly looks the part with a compact profile and medium to thin sole width.
  • It looks hollow: Based on the head geometry combined with the toe screw, I am willing to bet that these new i59 irons ( at least in the longer irons) are hollow.
    Hollow irons aren’t new for Ping but a player’s centric hollow iron is, which is part of the reason I believe Ping has chosen to go a little off-menu with the name—this is not like any iron Ping has released before.

Beyond speculation, we don’t have any further details about a potential release date, but we will follow this story closely. It’s very rare for Ping to release an iron out for tour use without a release date on the horizon, but with 2020’s impact on OEM logistics, it’s anyone’s guess at the moment.

    Get used to waiting 4 or 5 months for anything from China or the US.

    And buy Now! Prices will increase dramatically!

    You can probably add a 20% mark up while you wait too

    What will it take to get these? Maybe 6 months if you want other then 4 through PW in black dot, standard Ping shafts???? Management of Ping is getting worse almost daily, bring out new clubs when you cannot meet orders for what you are already selling sickening…

      Jim,
      It isn’t just Ping, all of the manufactures are suffering long lead times due to supply chain constraints. Orders placed with Taylormade and Callaway take up to to 4 months and even longer for the rare stuff like MMT shafts.

Adidas launches new PrimeBlue apparel and CodeChaos21 shoes

Published

on

Adidas Golf has unveiled its newest collection featuring apparel and shoes made from recycled PrimeBlue material.

For apparel products to be considered PrimeBlue, they must meet a minimum standard of 40 percent recycled content overall. The products as part of this latest range have a minimum of 95 percent, with a majority being made with 100 percent recycled polyester.

“Our goals are ambitious to eliminate all virgin polyester from our line, but this offering shows just how close we are to getting there. We pushed ourselves in new ways with design and materials development to bring this apparel to life. We know golfers around the world will appreciate the performance features, but they will also feel good about buying a product that in a small way saves our oceans from plastic waste.” – Shaun Madigan, director of global apparel, Adidas Golf.
