Understanding the Ping Colour Chart & Dot System

By on January 17, 2019

Ping Colour Chart – can you understand it?

Are you looking for a new set of Ping golf clubs? Understanding the ping colour chart and colour code system used by Ping will enable you to select a set that best suits your game. Ping’s unique colour code refers to lie angle, which is the angle between the clubs shaft and the sole of the club, in relation to its length. Sounds very technical, but it really isn’t and by checking the chart below you will find out the best club set up for you.

It is so important to make sure you get the best out of your clubs. Buying new golf clubs is a big investment and by custom fitting them correctly, this can improve your shot making and create better scores.

Step One :- Once you have downloaded your Ping Colour Code Chart from Ping.com you can see that you have overall height measurements along the top and wrist to floor measurements down the side. If you want to use a metric scale you need to look at the bottom.5% Off Ping Golf Clubs

Step Two :- Firstly you need to see if you suit a longer or shorter shaft. Find your overall height along the top and immediately underneath you will see any alteration if needed. For example, if you are between 5ft 7inches and 6ft 1inch you should be a standard length, but it you are either side of this you will need to have shafts extended or decreased by the measurement recommended.

Step Three :- If you then intersect your overall height with your wrist to floor measurement you will clearly see the colour band that best suits your size. Currently there are 12 colours  ranging from maroon to gold. As a general rule, the taller you are the more upright you will need your clubs, as against the shorter you are the more flatter you will be. Your lie angle measurement is stated under the colour which is also handy to know especially if you already have a custom fit set of clubs from other manufactures and are trying to compare.

Step Four :- If you are bordering between two colour codes, according to Pings website you need to determine whether your ball flight with your iron shots are typically a fade, slice, hook or draw. If you want to reduce your fade or slice then choose a more upright colour code opposed to if you want to reduce your hook or draw then choose a flatter colour.

Here at “The Golf Shop Online” we acknowledge the importance of custom fitting and firmly advise that when ordering a new set of clubs, you seek advice from your local golf professional, club fitter, or you can get in contact with ourselves and we can put you through to our Professional staff.

      Hi, thank you for your comment, our best advice is to get a new fitting from a PGA Professional who can then help determine what your specifications should be

      Hi David, thank you for your comment, PING irons will have a serial number on the hosel, our best advice is to call PING direct and provide them with this number, they will then be able to tell you the full specification off these clubs which will include the colour code.

    I swing using Moe Norman’s method. My arms and the club are on the same straight plane throughout. My question is how do you use the Ping color codes to fit this type of swing?

    Just purchased a set of G410’s, 5-UW green dot. I’m 5’5”
    So had 1/2” removed from shaft length. They are green dot which just seems like a little too much of an upward lie to me but you’re the experts. I’ll play a few more rounds before I make a decision about changing. Is it possible at all for ping to re-adjust to a lie angle more suited to my play if that ends up being the case? Love ping and from experience have found them to be the absolute best on the market, would hate to be stuck with clubs that aren’t quite suited for my play, not possible for me to order a new set of clubs either. Please lmk. Thank you so much! Hit em straight& long! Also, no ping grips or iron head covers with new clubs? Was disappointed. $1200 for a set of irons should warrant new ping head covers or a coupon for a new bag or towards a ping driver/woods. Thank you and I’m awaiting your response.

      Hi Mark,

      Thank you for your comment, yes this should help to get you striking from the centre off the club face.

    I came upon a used set of G700, white dot. I intended to flip em for a profit,,,, Just to see, I played with them twice, and love em. However, at 5’-8” with a wrist to floor of 32”,, the charts say red or even orange dot,,, I picked these up to resell them, but I hit them great, just wondering if it’s just “ beginners luck” since the white dot is so far away from what the charts say,
