Ping Serene Golf Clubs

There is a new make of ladies clubs introduced by Ping, they are the Serene family. The Serene driver features a high-balance-point shaft, which allowed us to lengthen the shaft ½ inch while maintaining the same overall weight so women can swing a longer club to generate more distance. It’s these types of improvements that continually lead to lower scores and more enjoyment for golfers.”

 Designed specifically for women's swings, the Serene clubs offer more options for female players than most other brands' women's models. Ping is known for its emphasis on proper fitting and custom options, no matter the player's gender or ability. The most notable advantage offered in the Serene line is two women's flex/weight options, Lite and Ultra Lite, in the stock Ping ULT210 graphite shaft -- something you almost never see in the golf-club market, even today.

The wide-bodied, lightweight-titanium Serene driver has an ultra-thin crown, which allows for excess weight to be placed in strategic areas inside the head to optimize forgiveness and launch. The driver is 45 inches long and available in three lofts (10.5, 12 and 14 degrees). An external weight pad has been placed low and back in each of the three stainless-steel fairway woods; combined with the shallow clubhead design, it helps you get the ball up in the air with less effort. The fairway-wood lofts are slow-swing-speed friendly to add additional launch (the 3-wood is 18 degrees, the 5-wood 22 degrees and the 7-wood 26 degrees).

The Serene hybrid-iron set allows you to mix and match hybrids and irons to suit your needs; you can have as many as three hybrids (4, 5 and 6) or just opt for two, or one, or none -- the price is the same per club. That's right, you can buy these clubs in a piece-meal fashion, which is the best possible way to build a set.



Ping Anser Series

 Ping has now introduced several new products, including the Anser adjustable driver, which is offered in four high-performance shafts, the new Tour wedge with Gorge Groove Technology and the Serene family, specifically engineered for female golfers. All the new products are available in golf shops now.

Trajectory Tuning Technology allows you to hone in

your launch angle and spin rate to increase distance. When adding loft, the face angle closes slightly; when subtracting, the face angle opens slightly. However, our Trajectory Tuning Technology minimizes face-angle effects. This lets you fine-tune the height of your trajectory by changing loft before a round to suit the playing conditions, the weather, or changes in your swing. The body of the traditionally shaped 460cc head is centrifugally cast into a complex, variable-thickness geometry from Ti 8-1-1, a light, low-density alloy, which yields extra weight that is redistributed to increase MOI on both axes.


A variable-thickness face helps generate

incredible ball velocity. External sole weighting positions the CG low and raises the MOI, which provides a mid-high launch that adds to distance and forgiveness. Its neutral head rotation promotes a straight ball flight, and the Anser’s low-spin design minimizes left or right curvature to help drives find the fairway. It has a non-glare, matte black finish.

The Ping Anser Fairway woods are versatile because they are used off the tee and off the ground.

 PING fairway woods excel from all types of lies and conditions. Built with a lot of forgiveness into them and the center of gravity is optimized to achieve longer, higher-launching shots that find their targets. PING’s industry-leading custom-fitting process can help you determine the mix of fairway wood lofts (along with shaft type and flex) that will optimize your launch conditions to give you the best result.

 When adding loft, the face angle closes slightly; when subtracting, the face angle opens slightly. However, we’ve designed our Trajectory Tuning Technology to minimize face-angle effects. This approach lets you fine-tune the height of your trajectory by changing loft before a round to suit the playing conditions, the weather, or changes in your swing.

Gorge Wedge
Gorge Grooves in the Tour wedge
Ping’s new Tour wedge features an innovation called Gorge Groove Technology, designed to maximise spin and control. The grooves are precision-milled at the company’s Phoenix plant, allowing the company’s machinists to hold very tight tolerances and to monitor every groove variable: top-edge radius, width, depth, spacing, and wall angle.
