Aim To The Right
Most greens slope from front to back, and most golfers make more right-to-left putts than left-to-right breakers. So? Play for more left-breaking putts by favoring the right side of the pin. Don't be afraid of a little draw-spin, too. The ball will roll toward the hole, not away from it. This will, in turn, help you make more putts!
Key Features: A dogleg hosel that virtually eliminates the possibility of shanking the ball off the hosel of the club. But that's not all it does. This unique design helps enhance the sweet spot and reduce drag in the rough or sand.
Wow Factor: Come on, now. That's some crazy offset! It's unshankable.
Specs: Available in 3-PW in Formosa/Femco steel or graphite (LH available).

Power Play
Warp Speed
Key Features: Aside from the incredible value, the Warp Speed irons are both long and forgiving, thanks to some serious perimeter weighting, which creates a high MOI and COR rating.
Wow Factor: Great value and rather impressive performance. We appreciate the ability to build a set of irons to our liking without busting the bank.
Specs: Sold individually with endless options for shafts and grips.

Wilson Staff
Key Features: Weight is optimally distributed across the shaft, grip and clubhead for solid feel and power. A large, thin clubface delivers fast ball speed and, thus, distance. The undercut cavity lends to extreme perimeter weighting and plenty of forgiveness.
Wow Factor: This super game-improvement iron is priced to sell. The clubs feel great at impact, and we were consistently able to hit our targets with them. Higher handicaps will like these. A lot.
Specs: Available in 4-GW, with a True Temper SL-85 steel or Matrix Studio 6.1 graphite shaft.

Key Features: Part of an iron-hybrid combination set, the stainless-steel iron clubheads launch shots high due to them being long from heel to toe and sporting a low/deep CG. The custom tuning port connects to the sole, reinforcing the thin clubface to increase ball speed and consistency across the face while promoting a solid feel. Custom-engineered length and loft progressions ensure high launch and ball speed.
Wow Factor: Excellent game-improvement irons that, with the PING name, we know will withstand the test of time and serve you well for years.
Specs: Available in 5-SW, with a PING-branded CFS Distance steel or KS 401 graphite shaft.
