Are the Ping G Series drivers adjustable?
The Ping G series drivers are adjustable and adaptable as per the comfort of their users. The G Series drivers have adjustable hosels that feature 5 settings for their lofts. These settings can be adjusted using a torque wrench.
The Ping G Series of drivers use Dragonfly Technology where the crown has several minute partitions to aid in better positioning of the center of gravity. These partitions help to launch the ball higher or with lower spin and increased moment of inertia.
The Vortec Velocity feature helps improve club-head speed and achieve greater distance. The forgiving nature of the G Series enables golfers to change trajectory if required.

How do I adjust my Ping G Driver?
The Ping G driver can be adjusted by changing the loft and altering the trajectory using a torque wrench and then by fixing the club in the desired position. The change is made on the hosel of the driver.
Here are the three different Ping G Series models:
Ping G Driver adjustment
The Ping G driver has five thin sections of 0.43 mm thickness. Due to this design, the weight of the crown has been reduced by 8 grams, which is then advanced towards the sole to move the Centre of Gravity.
The visual enhancement and design improvements of this driver offer several gains along with better appeal and a pleasant sound. When the driver is lofted to the desired position by scaling up to 0.6° or downwards to 1°, the driver helps to achieve a medium-high flight and accurate level of penetration.
Ping G SF TEC Driver adjustment
The second variation of the G Series is an SF, also known as Straight Flight. This driver comes with loft degree options of 10° and 12° with the bottom weight marginally increased towards the heel of the club.
This causes a minute shift in the center of gravity for better alignment of the fades. It generates approximately 12 yards of left correction to shots as observed and experienced by many golfers. Many players prefer the SF TEC as it can be hit effortlessly.
Ping G LS TEC Driver adjustment
The third and final version of the G series Ping driver is the LS TEC, also known as Low Spin Technology. It possesses the same head but more weight towards the sole and generates a low spin. This version is designed to minimize the spin by 400 RPM.
However, many golfers achieve more than 200 RPM radius with a 10.5° head with significant dispersion.
Many golfers have experienced that the extra weight at the toe of the club makes it an anti-left driver rendering most shots towards the right side of the radius.
Golfers mostly use the LS TEC depending on their performance. Players with elevated swing speeds and spin deliveries may prefer using this driver.
How to adjust the settings of the Ping G driver:
- Place the driver in a neutral loft position. Rest the shaft on the ground for better stability.
- Insert the wrench into the screw behind the clubhead and turn it in the anticlockwise direction until the screw becomes loose.
- Detach the club shaft gently from the clubhead.
- Do one of the following alignments to increase or decrease the standard loft.
- Align the arrow marked on the clubhead with the +0.6° or +1° setting to increase the standard loft.
- Align the arrow marked on the clubhead with the -0.6° or -1° setting to decrease the standard loft.
- Turn the wrench in the clockwise direction to tighten the screw and secure the clubhead in position over the club shaft.
- Stop the turning process when you hear a click sound.
How to adjust Ping G LS Tec Driver settings
The Ping G LS Tec driver settings can be adjusted for different loft angles by adjusting its hosel. This driver features similar forgiveness as that of the G driver but with a discernibly lesser spin. It is an ideal selection for golfers who have a high spin.
Here are some notable features of the Ping G LS Tec driver:
The G LS Tec is positioned more freely at the address along with a long face when compared to the G driver.
- Sound & Quality
The sound of the impact of the Ping G LS Tec driver is close to the sound produced by the G driver. It is moderately loud and sounds like a muffled crack. The design of the shaft is similar to other G drivers that have a conversely balanced Alta. This is required to maintain the swing weight in a standard radius by having a large-sized head.
The Ping G LS Tec driver produces a notably lesser spin when compared to the G driver. Some golfers experience a variance of about 300 RPM to 400 RPM. This output is generally for those players who are fairly low spinners. Many golfers find the forgiveness of this driver very appealing.
The steps to adjust the settings of the Ping G LS tech driver are given below:
- Rest the driver with the shaft on the ground and its loft in a neutral position. The neutral position indicates the standard loft setting.
- Loosen the screw behind the clubhead with a few right turns of the wrench that comes with the driver.
- Remove the clubhead from its position above the club shaft.
- Decrease or increase the loft setting by doing one of the following alignments.
- Set the -0.6° or -1° setting on the shaft in line with the arrow on the clubhead to decrease the standard loft.
- Set the +0.6° or +1° setting on the shaft in line with the arrow on the clubhead to increase the standard loft.
- Turn the wrench the same number of turns as you did earlier to the left to fix the clubhead over the club shaft.
How to adjust Ping G SF Tec Driver settings
The Ping G SF Tec Driver settings are easy to adjust and are similar to the other G series drivers.
Here are some notable features of this driver:
This driver may not be the first choice compared to its counterparts, the G driver and the G LS Tec driver. When this driver is flipped, its uniqueness is noticeable. There is a heavyweight near the heel that helps the ball to go from right to left.
- Sound & Quality
The shaft of the G SF Tec is designed in such a way that it provides proper balance for a normal swing. It renders a smooth feel between the butt and club-head. The driver produces a decent sound when it makes contact with the ball.
This driver exemplifies its slice-breaking capacity with the Centre of Gravity moved towards the heel. This turns the ball over from right to left. The driver is forgiving too. Moreover, the turbulators help slicers strike extended and straight shots.
How to adjust the settings of the Ping G SF tech driver:
- Rest the driver upright so that its shaft touches the ground.
- Ensure that the loft of the driver is in the standard or neutral setting.
- Fit the wrench into the screw housed at the rear of the clubhead and turn it in the counterclockwise direction until the screw becomes loose.
- Lift the clubhead gently and take it off the club shaft.
- Make the desired loft setting by doing one of the following.
- Keep the +1° or +0.6° loft marking on the hosel lined with the arrow mark present on the clubhead to raise the standard loft.
- Keep the -1° or -0.6° loft marking on the hosel lined with the arrow mark present on the clubhead to lower the standard loft.
- Tighten the screw on the clubhead to fix it in place by turning the wrench in the opposite direction as many times as you did in Step 3.
