Ping G25 Driver Adjustment Guide + (CHART)


ping g25 driver adjustment

 

Is the Ping G25 driver adjustable?

The Ping G25 driver is adjustable. It’s possible to do four adjustments using the hosel adapter of the driver apart from the stated loft setting and increment or decrement the stated loft by 1° or 0.5°.

 

How do I adjust my Ping G25 driver?

The Ping G25 driver can be adjusted using the Ping wrench that resembles a small Philips-head screwdriver that comes along with the driver and by choosing the appropriate loft setting on the hosel. All four variants feature identical adjustment settings and can be adjusted the same way.

The Ping G25 driver is available with four different loft options. The weight of the driver is oriented more towards the sole that results in a low center of gravity and produces a high moment of inertia. It helps golfers add some extra yards to their usual distance.

Apart from the elegant look and feel with the matt black finish, the driver renders a solid sound. The G25 driver can be set up at address very easily.

The Ping driver has a length of 45.75 inches, a 460cc clubhead and a D3 swing weight along with a lightweight adjustable hosel. There are multiple high-balance-point shaft options, each of which has a different weight. This driver is a good choice for beginners due to three key reasons.

This driver is very simple to use, very forgiving and has a large sweet spot. It’s also an ideal driver for low handicappers

 

The steps involved in adjusting the Ping G25 driver are mentioned below:

  1. Rest the Ping G25 driver vertically with the club shaft resting firmly on the ground and the clubhead to the top.
  2. Insert the wrench into the large screw behind the clubhead.
  3. Turn the wrench in the counterclockwise direction until the screw becomes loose.
  4. Pull the clubhead gently and remove it from over the hosel.
  5. Reseat the clubhead taking care to align the arrow mark on the clubhead with the desired marking on the hosel adapter.
  • The Big + or Big – marking increases or decreases the stated loft by 1°.
  • The Small + or Small – marking raises or lowers the stated loft by 0.5°.
  1. Insert the wrench into the loosened screw once more and turn it in the clockwise direction. The number of turns is often the same as in Step 3.
  2. Stop the turning as soon as you hear a single-click sound. This sound indicates that the clubhead is firmly seated. There are chances of the driver getting damaged if you continue to turn it after the click sound.

 

The Ping G25 driver comes with the dot setting done by default. This setting makes the driver available with the stated loft specified by the manufacturer.

It’s worth noting that changing the loft of the driver makes an appropriate change to its face angle as well. However, the loft change doesn’t make any change to the standard 58° lie angle of the driver.

The Ping G25 driver can be adjusted for four additional loft options. Depending on what adjustment you make, you can set the driver for a draw or a fade to render the best performance for your game.

 

The table given below shows the different adjustment options for all the four loft variants of the G25 driver.

How to remove Ping G25 driver head

The head of the Ping G25 driver must be removed as part of its adjustment process. This adjustment is a simple straightforward process and can be done using the Ping wrench that accompanies the driver.

 

The head is removed in the same way as any of the clubs in the Ping G series driver.

 

The steps given here walk you through the process of removing the clubhead of the Ping G25 driver.

  1. Keep the Ping G30 driver in a vertical position with the clubhead and shaft facing upwards and downwards respectively.
  2. Put the wrench inside the screw at the rear of the clubhead.
  3. Do a few turns of the wrench in the anticlockwise direction until the screw is really loose.
  4. Raise the clubhead upwards using mild force and lift it off from its position on the shaft or hosel.

 

Putting the clubhead back or reseating it in place is the same as that of its removal with just one difference. The wrench must be turned in the reverse direction the same number of times you turned earlier to remove the clubhead.

The main reason why golfers remove the head of their Ping G25 driver is to adjust its loft to suit their playing preferences. It’s essential to make sure that the clubhead is firmly placed in position when it is reseated after the adjustment.

 

Ping G25 driver draw setting

The Ping G25 driver can be set for a draw by merely increasing the loft of the driver. There are two settings that can be done on this driver for a draw setting.

 

The steps highlighted here walk you through the process of setting your G25 driver for a draw.

  1. Keep the Ping G25 driver upright resting its shaft on the ground.
  2. Fit the wrench into the screw at the back of the clubhead and do a few turns to the right so that the screw gets loosened.
  3. Lift the clubhead upward without much force and pull it off from the hosel.
  4. Align the arrow mark on the clubhead with one of the following marks on the hosel adapter.
  • Big +: This setting increases the stated loft by 1°.
  • Small +: This setting increases the stated loft by 0.5°.
  1. Replace the clubhead over the adapter taking care not to change the above-chosen alignment.
  2. Lock the clubhead in position by inserting the wrench again into the screw and turning it to the left until there is an audible click sound.

 

The draw is more pronounced with the Big + or 1° setting when compared to the Small + or 0.5° setting. This will in turn close the clubface partially. Moreover, an increased loft helps golfers achieve a higher ball launch and more spin than with the stated loft. However, this setting may result in a compromise on distance for some players.

 

How do you change the loft on a Ping G25 driver?

The loft on a Ping G25 driver can be changed by removing its clubhead using the Ping Torx limiting wrench and aligning it with the desired loft marking on the hosel adapter.

 

You can follow the steps given here to change the loft on a Ping G25 driver depending on which setting best suits your game.

  1. Place the Ping G25 driver in a vertical position with the clubhead facing upwards.
  2. Put the wrench tip into the screw located behind the clubhead.
  3. Loosen the screw by turning the wrench a few times to your left.
  4. Raise the clubhead gently and remove it from the shaft.
  5. Align the arrowhead on the clubhead with one of the following markings on the hosel adapter.
  • Big +: This setting raises the stated loft by 1°.
  • Big -: This setting lowers the stated loft by 1°.
  • Small +: This setting increments the stated loft by 0.5°.
  • Small -: This setting decrements the stated loft by 0.5°.
  1. Place the clubhead once again above the hosel adapter without affecting the chosen loft.
  2. Tighten the screw with an identical number of turns to your right. Avoid turning after there is a click sound as this overturning can result in your driver getting damaged.

 

Increasing the loft of the driver makes it best suited for a draw with a fractionally closed clubface. This setting will also promote more spin and higher ball launch with lesser distance than the stated loft.

On the other hand, decreasing the loft sets the driver for a fade with a marginally open clubface. This setting will help in achieving more distance with the driver but will produce lesser ball spin and lower launch.

 

Ping G25 driver weight plug removal

The weight plug in the Ping G25 driver is positioned at the sole of the driver. It’s not possible to adjust the position of this weight. However, you can remove the stock weight plug and replace it with a lighter or heavier weight of your choice.

The weight plug is fixed in place using Loctite. You will need a blow dryer or heat gun to loosen this bonding. After this, you can use the same Ping wrench that you use for loft adjustment to remove the existing weight plug and secure a new one in its place.

Remember to remove any leftover traces of Loctite using a wire brush before you insert the new weight plug and secure it in position.
