PING G30 Driver #1 Five Straight Months
The PING G30 driver continued its streak as the #1 selling driver model in golf, increasing its market share in units and dollars while marking the 5th consecutive month that more G30s were sold than any other model, according to Golf Datatech LLC, which tracks golf equipment sell thru information for the United States.
The G30 driver’s leading market shares were 14.32%(units) and 18.8 %(dollars). Both market share numbers are the highest for any month since the driver’s introduction more than a year ago, since Bubba Watson added it to his bag. 62% more G30 driver units were sold than the next closest driver model. It also maintained its position as the top-selling model of 2015, selling 44% more units than its closest competitor from January thru June.
“The G30 driver has now been in the marketplace for a full year and it continues to be the #1 choice in golf shops.” said John Solheim. PING Chairman & CEO. “That success is very satisfying, knowing so many golfers are benefiting from the technology of the G30. It’s a tribute to our engineering team and to the thousands of PING club-fitters around the country who take the time to properly fit their customers for the correct driver. Their ability to match the head technology with the proper shaft is allowing golfers of all skill levels to see significant distance gains while finding more fairways than ever.”
The G30 driver is offered in three options to custom-fit golfers. The standard G30 comes in 9 or 10.5 degree lofts. The G30 SF Tec ,which helps produce a draw shot bend (for right-handers), is available in 10 or 12 degree lofts. The G30 LS Tec is engineered to provide low, stable spin for added control and is offered in lofts of 9 or 10.5 degrees. All three options are adjustable + or – 1 degree and feature Turbulator Technology (Bubba’s not sure what that is but it works for him), a T9S titanium face and a low/back center of gravity.
