MORE PICS! – BUBBA’s PINK PING G Driver

Post image for MORE PICS! – BUBBA’s PINK PING G Driver

There's still not much we can say about the technology that powers the upcoming Limited Edition Bubba Watson Pink PING G Driver, but you'll definitely want to pay close attention to the trailing edge where VORTEC is emblazoned above what appears to be slot in the rear of the driver.

What do you think? Are you at least curious?

It’s an amazing looking piece of kit, just wish they would have maybe 2 colour options beside the plain black.
Can you imagine the pink one being available and maybe an option with same detailing as Bubba’s, but in white?

They must have forgot to put in a place for the turbulator gas to exhaust. Now they got it fixed.

I like it, I traded in Cobra last year for Ping’s, first few rounds were hard but after 5 rounds I was down 4 strokes average for the next 10, finished the year 3 down versus the prior year (foot injury in August didn’t help of course). My view, Ping’s are worth it, they are not flashy but they are highly engineered and customized, I am sold on their equipment and low marketing approach.

Looks like a great driver. Haven’t personally used a Ping driver but love their irons.

If they reduced the price a little bit I would be more likely to give this model a try and see how it goes.

A little too busy for my taste. Too much with turbulators too. And I’m not sure how Bubba can look at that ugly ‘striped’ pink driver either – just too much going on there. Hopefully the driver overall is as good or better than the G30 it replaces though. Ping makes terrific clubs overall and hopefully the senior designers they lost to PXG won’t affect the products they produce going forward.

GilB January 5, 2016 at 12:30 pm

Definitely black. Pink is not my color.

There’s a huge vortex coming off the circular-section hosel. How about detachable and adjustable spoilers for golf clubheads?

You could 3D print each spoilers and apply them to any clubhead, provided there was a suitable method of attaching them.

Reply

Kerry Cole January 5, 2016 at 10:55 am

I for one am curious. Ping has done a lot with drivers in the last few years.. My one question is will this vortex actually help the swingers with a speed of 95 mph and less? Looks nice so far.

Hi Golfspy guys!
I always follow your excellent info site, thanks.
Having been reported to me that couple seasons ago Ping’s international VP came onto the Williams Racing Golf booth at a golf show in Europe, saw our Williams racing designed aerodynamic designs with what we call ‘Trip’ on top of Driver club head and on sides of club head called Winglets,and on soleplate the channel and Diffuser, he exclaimed without introducing himself,,’ what shxt is this’ !! and promptly denounced our aero designs and modulus rebound forged faces with various tensile strengths according to loft to maximises rebound;distance and carry. A number of show samples went missing and we then found Ping making and selling aerodynamic heads with what they called ‘turbulators’ and aero package..so I have to dare say he may have had a second thought on trashing aero designs and followed on from what he saw by making their own..Nice guy..not! Our clubs have been out since 2010 and our aero package designs and modulus rebound MR faces have been tested in UK and proved to accelerate club head speed and thereby attain longer carry and distance with very little dispersion!! Perhaps you would be so kind as to check out our website..we have been trying to get through to your company for some months now..and if you would like test samples , please let us know as we have some in the USA right now!!
All the best and thanks for keeping tabs on the golf market!
Cheers,
James.

I’m a big fan of the Williams Racing team and Sir Frank Williams! I would love to see a write up on the Williams club. Come on MGS, let’s make it happen.

Reply

james January 6, 2016 at 11:08 am

Hi John,
Thanks for your kind words/suggestion..since your post I have asked MGS to test Williams Racing Golf products and hope to receive a reply.If you wish ,please advise me an address I can send a Williams Racing Golf hat to you in way of thanks.
All the best,
James.

Steve January 5, 2016 at 11:40 am

So you are accusing the Ping VP of stealing your samples? Innuendo and rumors are below Williams Racing’s reputation. If your designs are patented then go after Ping in the courts otherwise don’t attack Ping’s reputation without proof, if you are an actual representative of Williams.

james January 6, 2016 at 11:03 am

Hi Steve,
You are right patent/I.P. is the way.
Thanks for you considered input which I duly note.
All the best,

Steve January 6, 2016 at 12:11 pm

James, Go for it! I’d love to see you take some of the “copiers” down a notch. As a engineer whose had his work stolen by competitors, I’ve enjoyed working with lawyers that wrote some great cease and desist letters. Sometimes they work other times you have to sue. You might have a good case since the pictures of your clubs look like Ping’s are a dead copy with different colors. Looking forward to seeing your products in the US.

George January 6, 2016 at 9:11 am

James,

I did go to the Williams Racing Golf website and I have to say that the comparison is eerily similar.

I would love to see the Williams line up close and personal in the States. My son is a F1 fan as well as a final year engineering student at Arizona State University.

Best of luck,

George

james January 6, 2016 at 10:58 am

Hi George,
Thanks for your kind words.Please send me your direct email address so I can arrange for you to view and demo Williams Racing Golf products,with no commitment..we have some samples with a potential US Distributor and then I will send a Williams Racing Golf hat for your son..which will come from Europe,should I send to his college direct?
Thanks again,
best regards,
james.

Don’t worry Jim, you aren’t good enough or have enough money to buy the Ping…get yourself a good CHEAP deal at Walmart and stop spreading BS

Reply

Steve Mackenthun January 5, 2016 at 11:14 am

He may be wrong but he is only stating his opinion that much of what is done year to year is all hype to sell another model year of clubs… and really is he wrong … each year every manufacturer HAS to come up with a new “break through” club to retain market share through advertising the next best & greatest OR lose sales to the other companies who have a new improved model on the market. I think your insult is misplaced, and as an aside he may not only be good enough he may be better (than you) … experience tells me that “bark” does not always mean better, just louder …. Mellow out a little ?

james January 6, 2016 at 11:21 am

Hi Steve Mackenthrum,
Thanks for your input..you sound like a calm, cool guy who would be good to meet in a pub for a pint! In return for my appreciation of your considerate manner..i would be happy to send you a Williams Racing golf hat in way of thanks.Where can i send to?Your views are pretty much on the spot..as the big brands copying each other or introducing new product 3 or 4 times a year..! striving to retain market share as they have huge overheads..and results in devaluation of product bought by consumes within 3 months!!
All the best,
james.

Hi Jim Brown,
Walmart is known as Asda here in UK.Its a great shop..for food..Sports Direct are number 1. in low end sporting goods.I wish I had more money..thats for sure!..and as others seen who have posted messages after checking http://www.williams-racing-golf.com website there are similarities. Sorry to have upset you.Just sticking up for ourselves here.
all the best,
james.

James, I think the comment was meant for me since he was replying to my comment. I don’t respond to ex-US pro football players who I’ve seen try to play golf. His swing is awful and he has a bad temper…

Reply

james January 6, 2016 at 3:36 pm

Hi Steve,
oh..ok.apologies , I wanted to clarify that with hindsight I came on a bit strong on the Ping thing..i do feel justified in sticking up for who I work for.If it is Jim Brown ex footballer and I think actor , then that’s a shame I upset him, as even though I am over the pond in UK..i am sure I remember him in films , and I have met through golf a few film guys,actors,tv stars, film directors and they all love golf and enjoy finding new equipment.
I thank you again for your advice..and if I can arrange anything for you in the way of demos or a WRG golf hat etc..let me know!
cheers,
james.

All the turbulators make it look “busy” IMO. Kind of distracting

Tristan Booker January 5, 2016 at 2:57 pm

I thought that too when I first tested it, now that I have one, they actually frame the ball up nicely.

Reply

Jason Pohl January 5, 2016 at 2:58 pm

The g30 doesn’t look bad. I agree it framed the ball beautifully. I think the new “G” looks distracting with it all over the crown though

Reply

Matt Judge January 5, 2016 at 3:55 pm

You do realize it is the exact same top? In the consumer version you wont be able to see all of that. Thats just how bubba wanted his painted up. It will probably be the all flat black version again.

Reply

Jason Pohl January 5, 2016 at 4:16 pm

They have the all black next to it in one of the pictures and it’s still noticeable. I noticed it alot on the g30 even. Just me

Reply

Matt Judge January 5, 2016 at 6:06 pm

Then why reference the G30 as one thing and the “G” as another? Its the same.

Reply

Jason Pohl January 5, 2016 at 6:09 pm

Because the new one as of now they are just calling the “G” driver……..

Reply

Al Berner January 5, 2016 at 2:26 pm

Reply

Keith Hanna January 5, 2016 at 2:22 pm

By the looks of the club head, it’s probably to cool the hyper flame jets that Ping now has attached to the driver
