While its major competitors continue to struggle, Ping Golf continues on a roll. In less than one month on the market, PING G drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons were the No. 1 sellers (units and dollars) in their respective categories for February in the on- and off-course retail channels combined, according to Golf Datatech LLC, which tracks golf equipment sell-through data for the United States.
The Ping G line earlier this year replaced the popular G30 line, whose driver has been the top-selling driver the past two years according to Golf Datatech.
“We’re very appreciative that golfers continue to put their confidence in our latest technology,” said Ping Chairman & CEO John A. Solheim about the new G Series, which arrived in golf shops on February 11. “The new G lineup offers golfers the performance they need to lower their scores and enjoy the game more. To be the top seller in all four categories is very rewarding and another testament to our engineering and manufacturing teams that ensure our products deliver the innovation and quality that Ping was founded on more than 55 years ago.”
Solheim said Tour acceptance for the G driver and fairway woods has been swift, with the majority of Ping staff players around the world switching to the new clubs, including Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen. Each Ping staffer has already won with a G driver and fairway wood in his bag.
