 The Ping iBlade could be a game-changer for the better player.  

One of my favorite players, Louis Oosthuizen, has put these irons in his bag, and they seem to be suiting him as he is playing great golf right now.  Look out for him in the upcoming US Open at Oakmont!  I like the nice clean lines, and the muscle back will help the medium handicap golfers get a higher trajectory with their long and mid irons.  I think Ping has a winner here.  Thanks to David Dusek of Golf Week for this insightful article!

It has been nearly three years since Ping brought the first S55 irons to the PGA Tour at the 2013 Barclays Championship at Liberty National Golf Club. Several staff players, including Bubba Watson, Hunter Mahan and Louis Oosthuizen put the better-player irons into their bag in short order.

The irons that will replace the S55 in Ping’s line-up, the iBlade irons, arrived Monday at TPC Sawgrass, site of this week’s Players Championship.

While Ping representatives are not sharing details about the clubs, based on the photo above, history and who Ping had in mind for the clubs, there are a few educated guesses about the iBlade irons.

The stabilizing bar in the back of the S55 is gone, replaced by a cavity-back design. Theoretically, this could move more overall weight down and to the edges of the head for increased stability and a lower center of gravity.
