You are about to enter another dimension. A dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. There's a signpost up ahead – your next stop?

The Crossover Zone.

PING Golf is many things, but satisfied with the status quo isn't one of them. PING offers some of the easiest to hit long irons and hybrids on the market, and with every new offering they always have a compelling story to tell. This year's G line, from driver to pitching wedge, is loaded with technology PING believes will make the game a boatload easier and more fun to play.



The Crossover

You first read about PING's new Crossover on MyGolfSpy back in January. PING says it combines the precision, workability and control of an iron with the speed and forgiveness of a hybrid, but you can't quite call it a “hybrid-iron.” Oh, and don't go thinking it's a driving iron because according to PING it's NOT – it says so on their website and they've told us so many times – they say it launches higher, is way more forgiving and way more versatile than a driving iron.

Is this a club you need in your bag? Are you one of the unfortunates who can hook virtually any hybrid made off the face of the planet? Do long irons scare you to the point that you want to curl up in the fetal position in the middle of the 8th fairway and cry “Mommy?”

Or would you just like something that's easier to hit and more accurate?

If you're any one of those listed above, we might be able to help.



MyGolfSpy Wants You!

We want to put PING's Crossover clubs to the test, and we need your help to do it. We're looking for four intrepid and energetic golfers to test and review PING's new creation and tell us if these things really are as precise, workable, controllable and forgiving as PING claims.

Are these the real deal?

Is the Crossover a reliable replacement for a long iron? Will it fit seamlessly between your longest iron and hybrid or fairway wood?

Are they just as easy to hit as a hybrid, but stay in the same zip code as your target?

Real golfers want to know.



How To Apply:

We need four folks to try out and review these new Crossovers, which PING will build to your specifications and to fit into your existing set. To apply, please tell us the following::

  • First name
  • Home state
  • Current handicap
  • Current long iron/hybrid, plus shaft and flex

This is an exciting opportunity for you to test out and review one of 2016's more unique niche products. Could it be the one that helps your long game? We want you to let us know!

- Garret

- Massachusetts

- GHIN is currently 3.0

- With varying New England conditions and layouts, I play either a 20* Ping Anser Hybrid or 22* Ping i25 Hybrid both with Fuji Speeder 8.8 Tour Spec X flex or the Ping Rapture 2 iron at 18* with Steelfiber i95 S flex tipped .5".  Longest iron in my MP-5 set is a 4 iron with DG X100


Would love to see if the Crossover deserves a more permanent position in the bag - thanks MGS!

This looks like it could be an awesome club to fill the gap in my bag that this could work for.

  • First name: Blake

  • Home state: Wisconsin
  • Current handicap: 8.6
  • Current long iron/hybrid, plus shaft and flex: I'm in flux between a TaylorMade RBZ Stage 2 18.5* with a stiff TP shaft and a TaylorMade UDI 20* with a stiff C-Taper Lite shaft. I tend to uncontrollably hook hybrids so the UDI is a new addition to the bag. After some early testing the UDI may be fine off the tee, but not fly high enough to work on approach shots. I'd love a chance to compare the Ping crossover to my current hybrid / long iron setup.
