What are the ping color codes?

This is why PING developed their color-coding scheme. Each color signifies a distinct degree and direction of variation from the conventional lie angle of each iron. There are ten distinct color codes (gold, brown, orange, red, black, blue, green, white, silver, and maroon) divided by one degree. So, for example, a gold lie means that the iron has a 5-degree slope to its face.

Here's how the colors are used: If the ball is resting on its heel, it will be silver or white. If the ball is sitting up on its toe, it's green. Brown indicates an intermediate position. The only exception is if the ball is completely flat on its face; in this case, it would be gold.

The reason you need to know this is because when you are playing golf, your goal is to have the best possible lie for your particular shot. By knowing the ping color code for each iron, you can tell which irons are most likely to help you reach that goal.

For example, if you want to hit a straight shot, you should use an iron with a brown or white lie. This will give you the most consistent roll from shot to shot.

If you want to hit a fade shot, you should use an iron with a silver or gold lie. This will cause the ball to start off rolling straight and then gradually fade away as it travels down the fairway.

What does the color of the dot on a Ping Eye Golf Club mean?

A little color-coded dot on each Ping iron identifies the relative lying angle. A black dot represents a conventional lie, about in the middle of the available options, while several other colors represent other lie angles. For example, red dots are used for an approach shot that will hit left of the target line, while green dots are for approaches that will land right of the target.

These are not actual golf balls. They are for demonstration purposes only. However, they do provide an idea of how different lies affect your shot.

The color coding isn't critical to good shooting form or ball flight, but it does help guide you into making proper contact with the ball. Aim too high and you'll miss out on hitting the ground stroke effectively, for example. Also, knowing which side of the hole to aim at can help you decide where to place the face when playing a particular shot.

As long as you're using good posture and a balanced swing, what you see on the clubface is what will go down the fairway. So, if you have red arrows on both sides of your driver, there's no need to worry about which way you should be swinging it.

That being said, there are times when you may want to hit one type of shot from one side of the course and another type of shot from the other side.

What does the color code on Ping golf clubs mean?

The Ping golf color code really corresponds to your iron shaft's lying angle. The various hues of the ping-golf ball signify various degrees of flatness or uprightness. As previously said, they were the first golf club makers to develop such a precise club fitting method.

The traditional set includes a driver (8 degrees), 14 irons (between 7 and 13 degrees), 1 wedge (9 degrees), and a pitching wedge (1 degree). But modern sets often include longer irons, which can be used by themselves or in combination with the other clubs in a set. For example, a set may include a 4-iron for straight shots or approach shots, a 5-iron for more distance, and a 6-iron for longer approaches.

These are the only clubs that need to be ordered in bright orange to fit your bag. All others are available in multiple colors. Prices vary depending on the model but generally start at $150 for a driver, $175-$200 for an iron set, and $225-$250 for a utility bundle.

In addition to its role in fitting clubs, the lie angle determines how much face angle is present on the club. Drivers and long irons have more face angle for greater loft; mids have about as much face as a fairway wood; and short irons have less face to reduce their size.
