PING Introduces Future of Junior Golf Clubs with Prodi G Series
PING recently made a striking move by unveiling its new custom-fit, custom-fit Prodi G Series of junior golf clubs, which take full advantage of the technology that exists within the adult line, bringing in something different and revolutionary to the market for young golfers.
The custom-engineered set is comprised of 11 clubs: a titanium driver, fairway wood, hybrid, perimeter-weighted irons (6-9, PW), two specialty wedges and a blade-style putter. The lightweight clubs can be ordered in any combination and all are custom built at PING’s European headquarters. Two sizes (34", 3.5 lbs. and 30", 3 lbs.) of the Hoofer Prodi G carry bags can be purchased separately.
As part of the launch of the new clubs, the company also announced the Prodi G “‘Get Golf Growing’” program, an industry-first junior golf equipment initiative that offers custom-fit and custom-built junior clubs that include a one-time, no-cost adjustment to sets of five clubs or more. The program helps address an all-too-common occurrence that results in a lot of junior golfers playing clubs not suited to their games.
We sat down with Mike Lea of PING to gain a further understanding of why this could usher in and represent the future of junior golf clubs.
