Titleist TSR2 Vs Ping G430 Fairway Wood

To achieve your best distance and launch, you have to know your gear.

So in the following comparison, we’ll look at how the Titleist TSR2 compares to the Ping G430 fairway woods.

Titleist TSR2 Fairway Wood Overview

Titleist TSR2 Driver

“The Titleist TSR2 15, 16.5, 18 and 21 degree loft options.”

The Titleist TSR2 has an adjustable hosel which makes it incredibly versatile. The CG is also nice and deep.

This produced effortlessly high launch, high spin rates and good stopping power.

It’s not a wood I would recommend for long approaches though, as the spinhampers overall carry distance.

Ping G430 Fairway Wood Overview

“The G430 comes in 15, 18, 21 and 24 degree loft options.”

The G430 also has an adjustable loft/lie hosel. The entire crown is made of carbon fiber which makes the G430 really fast on the downswing.

Compared to the Titleist TSR2, the G430 was also more forgiving.

I was getting straighter shots whether I hit the ball thin or missed on either side of the sweet spot.

Spin and launch were comparable to the Titleist TSR2 though.

“I really liked the forgiveness of the Ping G430 fairway wood which puts it above the Titleist TSR2 because both fairway woods essentially yield the same distance.”

Titleist TSR2 Fairway Wood First Impressions

 I couldn’t believe how easy this club was to hit.

Of course well-struck shots went far but it was the off-centre hits that really impressed.

The TSR2 showed impressive distance and straightness on shots that I would have expected to be short and way off-line.

Ping G430 Fairway Wood – First Impressions

“Overall we were pretty excited to get our hands on the Ping G430 fairway woods.”

We really liked the black and red color scheme and the overall aesthetic is very much in line with modern Ping clubs

We were taken with the feel of these woods almost immediately. The C300 maraging steel has an excellent resonant tone that really rewards you on pure strikes. While the Ping G430 fairway woods aren’t forged, you get feedback that is comparable to forged woods from them.
