iPING Golf App

By: Adam Smith | Thu 01 Sep 2011

So PING are the first major manufacturer to go into the App world with their release of the iPING available on the iPhone 4 and the iPod Touch (4th Generation)

This putting app I’m sure is going to be the first of many as other manufacturers will see what impact the iPING has had and how popular it is.

I reckon that the downside to the app is that you have to buy the cradle which attaches the app to your putter but if people are willing to do that then I’m sure it will be a big hit.

You can download the app for free and when you have the cradle it is simple to set up, simple to use and understand.

What does it do

Well developed by PING's engineers for all skill levels, the iPING putter app calculates and tracks your Putting Handicap™ (PHcp) to help improve your putting.

The iPING putter app is wireless, so you can use it anywhere. Practice and improve at your favourite golf course, at home, or on the road. Every session provides immediate results - leading to more consistency in your stroke.


  •  Analyzes your impact angle to improve putting mechanics
  • Classifies your stroke rotation to help match you to the proper putter model for more consistency
  • Measures the tempo of your stroke to improve control
  • Compares your stroke with Tour pros and friends

The newest version of the app (version 1.1) now includes a fitting component that helps club fitters select a putter model that best matches a golfer’s stroke type.

The iPING “Fit for Stroke” concept of putter fitting makes choosing a PING putter easier by matching the model to the player’s stroke type. Every putter will have a colour-coded shaft label:

  • Blue for straight stroke
  • Green for slight arc
  • Red for strong arc.



The primary function of this feature is to identify one of three stroke types for the golfer. Based on that result, the app offers a current list of PING putters matching the stroke type determined in the session. With this instant feedback about a player’s putting stroke, fitters can help golfers make informed purchase decisions on which putter model will improve their consistency on the greens.

For more-detailed putter fitting sessions, the “Advanced Fit” feature offers recommendations for length, loft and lie.
