Ping G10 Draw Driver Review

By Jim Hagerty

Specs

The Ping G10 Draw driver is a high trajectory, game-improvement 460cc driver made with four degrees of loft: 9, 10.5, 12 and 13. With its medium-spin titanium construction, the G10 Draw comes standard with a head weight of 199g and signature Ping TFC graphite shaft available in light (senior), regular and firm (stiff) flex. Each model is fitted with a rubber composite Ping grip. The Proforce V2 graphite shaft is also available, marking the club's High Loft (HL) model.

Perks

The G10 Draw driver is capable of getting the ball up quickly. It's comfortable at impact and fairly light. The grip is comfortable and the club is attractive and sleek-looking. With slow swings, the driver is very accurate and helps eliminate sprayed shots.

Sacrifices

The G10 Draw has the tendency of producing very high shots, especially higher lofted models. Even the 9-degree can shoot the ball upward quickly, most notably with fast, aggressive swings. Overcompensating on draw shots can result in snap hooks very easily.

Bottom Line

Usually found in the $250 range (in 2009), the G10 Draw isn't a head-turner. It can produce accurate shots for those struggling with control. Although far from a cannon, it can be a friendly club for those willing to trade few yards off the tee for hitting more drives in the fairway.
