Andy Sullivan puts the Ping G Series driver straight in the bag but why?

Andy Sullivan had a remarkable season in 2015, winning three tournaments on The European Tour and coming close to taking the prestigious DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates. The 28 year old Englishman has a realistic chance of playing a part in Darren Clarke’s  European Ryder Cup team if he continues in the same vein this season and he hopes to take his game to a new dimension after upgrading to the new PING G Series.

 

Worldwide Golf: The G 30 range is a tough act to follow, do you think PING have achieved it with the G Series?

Andy Sullivan: I do. The new look, the weight saving in the woods and the reduced drag, make for impressive numbers in testing.

 

WWG: What improvements do you think PING have made with this new range?

Andy Sullivan: For me PING have always made good looking clubs but the new G series range has improved my spin numbers with the driver and I’ve gained more control. In addition, I strike a lot less mishits and find the fairways more often. Also the driver head sound is improved and even more impressive.

 

WWG: They say ‘if it aint broke dont fix it’ – after such a good finish to last season, were you apprehensive about changing your clubs?

Andy Sullivan:I was. My PING equipment served me so well last year but it’s difficult to not put something straight in play when it looks good and the performance is improved from what you have previously used.

WWG: Looking at the new driver, what would you say are the key benefits it brings?

Andy Sullivan:I felt I had gained some clubhead speed, mostly because of the Dragonfly technology that enabled the designers to reduce the head weight. There’s also a reduced drag on the clubhead due to the added Turbulators and Vortec technology.

 

WWG: What are your first impressions of the innovative Crossover club that is part of the G series and how could it add a new dimension to your game?

Andy Sullivan: I haven’t tested it enough yet as I’m so happy with my current PING Hybrid.

 

WWG: Have you noticed that the launch is much better with the new G fairway woods?

Andy Sullivan: Yes, higher launch and less spin, so more distance and less effected by windy conditions.

 

WWG: What are your thoughts on the visual style and colour of the new clubs?

Andy Sullivan:I love the G drivers look and with the new design I find it much easier to set up square on every shot, due to the added Turbulators and graphics on the top of the head.

 

WWG: Which is your favourite from the new range?

Andy Sullivan: The G driver.
