With Angel Cabrera's victory and impressive driving statistics, the new G30 driver from Ping has been the talk of the town since its introduction.

Not to be lost in the shuffle, though, is the G30 line's irons, to be released the first week of August in retail stores.

The G30 irons are carved from the same 17-4 stainless steel Ping iron fans have come to know and love but those same brand loyalists will surely see something different when they try out the irons.

Ping is not shying away from the stronger lofts seen throughout the set. Classified as a game- improvement iron, the G30 irons offer extreme forgiveness and a high trajectory.

The set comes in progressive lengths and lofts and features a relatively thin face that aides in launch conditions.

They also feature Ping's Custom Tuning Port, which sits low on the clubface to help support the thing face and combines with a low and back center of gravity that adds to the clubs' forgiveness and high launch tendencies.

The impetus for the design and engineering for the G30 irons came from their predecessors, the Ping i25 and Karsten irons, both of which were released earlier this year.

The goal was to get longer and more consistent, leading to heads in the G30 that are slightly longer than those in the G25 and the progressive offset seen throughout the set.

The G30 irons, along with the driver, fairway woods and hybrids that make up the line, will be available in August.
