Women & Golf Review: Ping G Le2 Fairway Wood

Ping’s G Le2 Fairway Wood promises added ball speed, using their face technology increasing distance with greater forgiveness. Here is what Carly Frost thought when she put it to the test. 

By Carly Frost

THEY SAY 

A thinner, faster steel face, a significantly higher MOI and an 8-lobe adjustable hosel distinguish the G Le2 fairway wood from its predecessor. The added ball speed from the face technology increases distance and combines with the shallower face to launch the ball higher with greater forgiveness. An overall lighter club weight makes swinging the club easier with more clubhead speed for longer and straighter results.

I SAY

I was sceptical about how much better the new G Le 2 fairway woods could be until my first hit - wow these are really powerful woods! The very shallow clubhead shape and large footprint give the impression that the wood is easy to hit and let you simply glide the sole across fairway turf to sweep shots away. Remember to tee the ball down low off the tee though. I love the looks, the plum-colouring is beautiful. The funky clubhead ridges look like porcupine spikes and definitely improve the aerodynamics. The swing weight is light and it feels effortlessly easy to generate speed. Adjustability is a bonus.

Price: £240 – 3 (19°), 5 (22°), 7 (26°), 9 (30°)
