Ping adds Blueprint T and Blueprint S to Blueprint irons lineup

Published

on

Ping Blueprint S and Blueprint T irons arrived on the PGA Tour over the summer and today they are available for custom fittings and pre-order.

The additional offerings in Ping’s forged iron lineup join the original Blueprint irons, which were released back in 2019.

Regarding the line extension, Ping CEO & President John K. Solheim said, “Our two Blueprint irons represent a new strategy for us in the forged-iron category. With the forged and forgiving cavity-back design of the “S” and the traditional muscle-back shape of the “T”, we’re targeting a wider range of golfers who prefer tour-style forged irons.”

Ping Blueprint S irons: Performance-focused design

Developed after extensive testing with top Ping professionals, the Blueprint S features a forged cavity-back design, influenced by Ping’s existing “S” series irons. The compact shape, thin top line, and minimal offset make it visually appealing to forged club/blade enthusiasts. The forged 8620 carbon steel head has a clean cavity design with a textured pattern and hydropearl 2.0 chrome finish. Precision-milled grooves and a high-density toe screw enable swingweight fine-tuning. “Precision Pocket Forging” in the 3, 4, and 5 irons saves weight for increased MOI and optimized center of gravity. For improved sound and feel, the pocket is filled with an elastomer insert.

What Ping says about Blueprint S irons: “The Blueprint S is going to be a pleasant surprise for a lot of golfers who might not think they are good enough to play them,” Solheim said. “Its design speaks to the lower handicap, but its technology broadens its appeal to the player who is looking for a forged, blade-style iron that’s a little easier to hit but still delivers the look and feel expected in a blade.”

Ping Blueprint T irons: Workability and control

The Blueprint T, designed for skilled golfers who prioritize workability, is a single-piece, 8620 carbon steel forging. Its muscle-back design concentrates mass behind the impact zone for a pleasing sound and feel with workability. A shorter heel-face height and narrow soles is designed for a distraction-free appearance at address and consistent turf interaction. Precision-milled grooves and a high-density toe screw provide precise swingweight control.

The Blueprint T’s lofts match the Blueprint S and i230 irons, allowing for blended sets within Ping’s iron offerings.

What Ping says about Blueprint T irons: “Traditionally, an iron like the Blueprint T relies as much on the skill level of the player as it does on the technology,” Solheim said. “We understand that, but we’re always looking for ways to improve every iron we design. In the Blueprint T, every detail is extremely precise and calculated to ensure the performance demanded from a forged blade. It’s a true shot-maker’s iron crafted with precision, for precision.”
