PHOTOS: Ping's new S55 irons

  • Ping's newest irons designed for better players were first spotted on the PGA Tour at The Barclays at Liberty National Golf Club.
  • This view is what most accomplished players like to see at address: a clean look and thin topline.
  • A tungsten weight positioned in the toe of the S55 counterbalances the weight of the hosel and shifts the sweet spot into the center of the face.
  • A weight cartridge, positioned behind the face, allows fitters to adjust the swing weight of the S55. It's softer than the weights found in the S56 irons, which helps to create a softer feel at impact, according to Ping.
  • Because the center of gravity in the S55 long irons has been lowered, the lofts could be made one degree stronger.
