Evolution and Improvement: Ping Iron Timeline

Ping has been in the golf industry for a long time, but very few people are aware of the history of this prosperous family-run company. Let’s explore this golf industry giant’s fascinating history!

The Beginning

Ping Golf Clubs has been innovating and revolutionizing the golf game since 1959. Karsten Solheim, the company’s founder, designed his first putter in his garage in Redwood City, California, and named it Ping after the “ping” sound it made when it struck the ball. 

For the first time on the PGA Tour, a golfer used a Ping putter to win a tournament in 1962.

The Anser putter, designed by Solheim with an offset hosel to give golfers a clear view of the putter’s face, has improved the game of golf. 


Ping was the innovator of perimeter-weighted golf clubs and the first company to come out with a color-code fitting system.

Their iconic Anser putter has been used in over 500 professional golf wins, and the Ping Eye 2 irons have been the best-selling irons in its history. 

Recent Success

Ping released nine new designs for more forgiving irons, including the G710s and i500s.

They have become favorites throughout the golf world, and their clubs continue to push the boundaries of golf technology, producing clubs that both professionals and trainees enjoy. 

Game-Changing Ping Iron Sets 

Ping Golf Clubs have continuously revolutionized the game, beginning with the K1 Irons in 1969, the S59 in 2003, which was used by Bubba Watson for over a decade, to the Blueprint, G710, i210, and i500 irons in 2018. 

The ping Eye 2 from 1982, the ping Rapture from 2006, the Ping ISL from 1998, the Ping S59, and the ping i3s are among the most excellent ping irons ever made.

Ping Golf Iron Comparison: Old Vs. New

Ping irons have evolved significantly since their inception. So a difference in performance lies between clubs manufactured in the 1980s and those manufactured in the 2020s.

In short, the newer models have a higher ball speed, related to the gradual decrease in the loft. You can watch this video from 2nd Swing Golf for a detailed comparison! 


You already know the entire Ping history and its models from the previous section. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions to help clear up any confusion!

What is Ping’s most forgiving iron?

The most forgiving iron in the current Ping lineup is the G710, followed by the Ping G430. The G430 has comparable forgiveness but a slightly smaller head compared to the G710.

How long do Ping irons last?

It is recommended that low handicap and regular golfers replace their Ping irons after 300 rounds or 4-5 years. This is to prevent the clubs from wearing out and keep up with the latest technologies.

How can you tell fake Ping irons?

The fake club’s Ping badge is noticeably thinner than the genuine one, and the cavity’s edges are thicker. Furthermore, the black dot on the hosel of the counterfeit club is smaller than that of the genuine one.

Which Ping irons were banned?

The mighty Ping Eye-2 Iron was prohibited by the U.S. Golf Association. The reason for this was that the Ping Iron Eye-2 was too convenient for golfers and provided too much assistance to golfers using it!
