WYNTK
Year after year Ping continues to support women’s golf and in 2023 one of the most obvious ways is introduction of a new and updated version of their women’s club line the Ping G Le3 stressing “game-enjoyment technology.” They are interested in marketing to both current players the large number of women taking up the game.

Women swing more slowly, and a well-designed club should account for that fact. Ping for example in the G Le3 driver constructed a clubhead with lots of resistance to twisting or more technically a high-MOI. The head is the maximum size allowed by the USGA and has a fixed weight in the skirt which moves the center of gravity towards the back and slightly towards the heel. The idea is to make a driver easy to get airborne and forgiving when impact is a little off center plus provide a small amount of right-to-left slice correction bias.

Keeping in mind most women swing their driver at 80 mph or less, the stock shafts offered are both extremely lightweight, 44g and 52g ULT250 D.

Executive Vice President Stacey Pauwels, who oversees the development of PING products made exclusively for women said about the G Le3 family, “Our on-going commitment to engineering lightweight, easy-to-hit, premium clubs for women is rooted in PING’s long history of supporting women’s golf, dating back to the early 1970s. It started with my grandparents, Karsten and Louise Solheim, and continues today with the Solheim Cup and other game-growing initiatives.”

“The G Le3 family offers a full set of performance-engineered, custom-made clubs that deliver added distance, unmatched forgiveness, a confidence-inspiring look and a pleasing sound,” Pauwels continued. “In developing the line, we also made proper gapping a top priority to help ensure women get the best results from their set. That starts by visiting an authorized PING fitting specialist to determine the ideal set make-up and specifications, based largely on the player’s swing speed. We’re confident when custom-fit to the correct set configuration, women will see tremendous benefits from every club in their bag.
