Bubba Watson unveils the new Ping Golf G Series driver in Hawaii

Ping Golf's G30 driver was one of the breakout equipment hits in 2015. It quickly earned a reputation as one of the straightest-hitting drivers on the market, which sent it to the top of the sales list for most of the first half of the year. The on-crown fins, which the company calls turbulators, were designed to increase swing speed as well, leading to more distance.

There's been a lot of curiosity about how the company would follow up on the success of the G30, and we got a glimpse of the sequel on Monday thanks to Bubba Watson.

The Ping staffer, who is on Hawaii for the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, shared a video of him hitting the new G Series driver off the deck on the 18th hole at Kapalua Resort's Plantation Course, replicating one of Watson's most famous shots.

The crown appears to show the return of turbulators, while the USGA's list of conforming driver heads shows a weight port in the sole.


We'll learn more about the G Series driver, which will come with at least another model, called the G Series LS, soon.
