2014 Hot List: Players Drivers

The rules say drivers are at the limit, but today's adjustable heads make your potential limitless

February 3, 2014
Editor's Note: For the first time in 2014, Golf World has produced a Players Hot List for lower-handicap players. This is a separate process than the Golf Digest Hot List, although in some instances, the same clubs were recognized.

PING G25

PING G25

STREET PRICE: $350
LOFTS: 8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 12 (adjustable).

TECH TALK: More Ping tour staffers used this driver last year than any other in the Ping family, so don't assume this is a chopper's club. The large clubhead creates a high moment of inertia (MOI) for stability on off-center hits, and its CG is lower than any Ping driver in an effort to reduce spin.

PLAYER COMMENTS:
"Definitely one of the more solid drivers I've hit. The trajectory was high and fast. This thing flies." ... "Oversized but I like it. Very controllable, and feels so smooth through the zone."

HOT: Ping adds subtle (but we think appropriate) adjustability (plus or minus a half-degree) without sacrificing its core driver design principles of high launch and forgiveness.
NOT: It may launch higher than some better players like.
