Ping Prodi G juniorkøller

17.07 PING:
Kommer med nye juniorkøller
Det er viktig med riktige køller for den kommende generasjonen.

Det er trist å se foreldre og andre gi milelange køller til 4-5-åringer som selvsagt ikke har noen glede og nytte av å spille med alt for lange køller som er alt for tunge. Derfor er de nye Ping juniorkøllene velkomne.

Det kan være helt avgjørende om gutter og jenter liker golf når de skal forsøke første gang. Da er det viktig at redskapen er bra. Å produsere et OK resultat med dårlig redskap, fungerer heller ikke andre steder i livet.

Derfor: La ungene prøve med bra utstyr når de starter. Dette kan være en god idé for pro shop'ene rundt omkring: å ha prøvekøller for nybegynnere i ung alder. De nye køllene fra Ping kan da være et godt alternativ.

Her er pressemeldingen:

PING introduces custom-engineered Prodi G junior clubs
PHOENIX (July 16, 2018): Engineered with the score-lowering technologies of its adult line and inspired by its commitment to introduce more juniors to the game, PING announced today the new custom-fit, custom-built Prodi G Series – its highest-performing junior clubs to date. The new Prodi G clubs are available for pre-order and custom fitting at authorised PING golf shops around the world beginning today.

“The Prodi G junior clubs are engineered by the same teams that design our adult clubs. They feature a lot of the same technologies and undergo the same rigorous testing as all of our products,” said John K. Solheim, PING President. “From a performance standpoint, our research reveals the clubs far out-perform the competitive junior sets on the market, including the Prodi G driver being 15 yards longer with a moment of inertia that’s 50% higher than the top-selling junior driver.”

The custom-engineered set is comprised of 11 clubs: a 15⁰ titanium driver, 22⁰ fairway wood, 27⁰ hybrid, perimeter-weighted irons (6-9, PW), two specialty wedges (52⁰ & 56⁰) 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.

The proven technologies applied to the new line include turbulators on the driver for increased clubhead speed and irons with a custom tuning port to allow for precise swing weighting during the custom-building process. Two lightweight graphite shaft flexes are optimised for weight and balance to match junior swing speeds.

“For the first time, junior golfers can play the same technology as mum or dad that is custom fit and custom built just for them,” Solheim said. “We believe that has an appeal all on its own and will help get kids interested in playing more.”

In developing the new products, PING’s Fitting Science team created a junior fitting chart (a variation of the company’s iconic colour code chart developed nearly 50 years ago) that takes into account a junior’s height and wrist-to-floor measurement to determine the appropriate lie angle and club length. The Prodi G clubs are recommended for juniors 4'5" to 5'2" and can be ordered in custom lengths based on the results of a fitting session.

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.

“One of the biggest barriers parents of junior golfers face is investing in a set of clubs that their kids will outgrow in a short time,” Solheim said. “As a result, they often buy clubs that don’t fit their kids in hopes they’ll grow into them or they cut down old clubs. Neither option is ideal and impedes the junior’s golf development. Our ‘Get Golf Growing’ program is designed to be an affordable way to get juniors into high-performance custom-fit clubs while bringing more boys and girls to the sport. The Prodi G clubs grow with the kids. We believe if juniors are exposed to better equipment, they’ll enjoy golf more, which will ultimately help grow the game as the kids fall in love with golf and play it for a lifetime.”

To be eligible for the ‘Get Golf Growing’ program, five or more clubs must be purchased in one transaction. Allowable adjustments are re-shafting, lengthening, re-weighting and re-gripping.
