New Ping 2017 G812 Junior Driver now available from Hodson Golf

Feel free to read all the info and specs below but long story short:

  • Specifically designed for juniors aged 8-12 utilizing material, design, and technology comparable to current adult drivers.
  • Extensive junior testing resulted in:
    1. +3.5mph ball speed
    2. +15 YARDS IN DISTANCE
    3. +50% HIGHER MOI (I.E. 50% MORE FORGIVING!)

This is the perfect driver for the aspiring junior golfer who is ready to get out of the typical cheap aluminum/stainless steel drivers, but who is not yet ready for traditional men’s heads. There are several lengths available and these bad boys can significantly improve driver distance and control performance for those junior stars as young as 7 or 8. We have a limited quantity available so please contact us ASAP to put that special gift under the tree.

From Ping Press Release: “No longer does the junior golfer have to play with dad’s cut-down driver. We proved that in testing, where the custom-engineered G812 driver outperformed the industry-leading junior driver with 3.5 mph faster ball speed, 15 yards in distance, and a 50% higher MOI. The G812 driver is specially optimized with an appropriate 195g head mass, 15° loft, A8 swingweight, aerodynamic crown technology, faster face, and a shorter (41″), lighter counterbalanced shaft to maximize speed, distance and accuracy for players ages 8 to 12. (In testing, the G812 driver MOI was 37% greater high-low on the face and 25% greater heel-toe than our PING Moxie driver.)”

Though built to fit the body type and swing speed of juniors, the G812 driver boasts most of the same innovations of an adult-sized G driver: Dragonfly Technology for extreme CG and maximum MOI; Vortec Technology and Crown Turbulators to make the head more aerodynamic and faster; a precision-machined Ti 6-4 variable thickness face for added ball speed; and a centrifugally cast Ti 8-1-1 body that allows for a higher MOI and extreme accuracy that will help juniors find the fairway and build their confidence.

Press Release from Ping = “The G812 driver is custom-engineered to add significant distance and forgiveness for golfers ages 8 to 12. The head, shaft, swingweight and length are carefully optimized for the targeted golfer to achieve high launch and low spin for maximum distance and accuracy. At the same time, the G812 driver benefits from many of the same technology innovations of the adult-sized G driver: Dragonfly Technology, Vortec Technology, Crown Turbulators, and more”.

About Andrew Hodson

I am the youngest with in a golfing family which has spanned three generations. My grandfather started the tradition in England (Bert Hodson-1931 Ryder Cup Team) and has since passed on his knowledge and love of the game. Although I did not follow in the steps of my father and grandfather on a professional golfing level, my love of the game and commitment to accurately fit equipment has only grown. Even as a kid I enjoyed re-gripping clubs which eventually led to refinishing wood heads, re-shafting, and now has culminated in more detailed custom club fitting, building, and repair.
