PING’s new S55 irons were designed for use by better players and have already been seen on Tour in the bags of Bubba Watson and Hunter Mahan.
"The S56 has contributed to more than 30 tour wins worldwide, including an Open Championship, and its record has generated a lot of anticipation for the follow-up model," said PING Chairman and CEO John Solheim. "But that kind of challenge excites us.
We’re motivated by pushing innovation, and we were able to elevate performance with the S55 in key areas. Bubba Watson, Hunter Mahan, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Angel Cabrera are some of the players who switched right away, and validation from the game’s best players tells us that we got it right."
Solheim said these professionals especially like that S55s allow more control of the face prior to impact and that means more ability to work the ball which added to design’s increased forgiveness makes a very playable iron.
