The Blueprint S Irons from PING Golf represent a pinnacle of precision and performance in the realm of Golf Irons Sets. The Blueprint S Irons are an evolution of the original PING Blueprint Irons, tailored to provide even greater shot-making capabilities and control. These Irons are designed with a focus on the needs of skilled golfers, offering a compact head shape that exudes a classic, clean look at address.
One notable feature of the Blueprint S Irons is their forged construction, ensuring a soft and responsive feel upon impact. The strategic placement of the center of gravity (CG) optimises trajectory control and shot workability, providing golfers with the ability to shape their shots with precision. The compact blade design instills confidence in the player and allows for enhanced shot-making versatility.
The Blueprint S Irons are crafted with meticulous attention to detail, incorporating a tungsten weight in the toe section to enhance forgiveness and stability, particularly on off-center strikes. This thoughtful design element ensures consistent performance across the entire clubface, a crucial aspect for players who demand accuracy and reliability in every swing.
What further sets the Ping Blueprint S Iron family apart is the split-set construction technology called “precision pocket forging.” This patented forging technique allows PING to forge a pocket into the cavity of the 3, 4 and 5 irons. The pocket saves 10 grams of weight, which is re-allocated to increase the MOI and optimise the center of gravity position for more distance and trajectory control.
An elastomer insert is concealed in the pocket of the 3-5 irons, ensuring the solid feel and sound expected in a forged players iron. The 6-iron through pitching wedge are sized and shaped to ensure workability and control.
Through thorough testing with PING's elite tour professionals, they've garnered invaluable insights that played a pivotal role in the evolution of Blueprint S. Every aspect was meticulously examined, leaving no detail overlooked. This comprehensive approach has resulted in distinctive features that set Blueprint S apart in the realm of forged irons.
Employing a patented method, a cavity pocket is forged into the 3, 4, and 5 irons, conserving 10g of weight. This saved weight is strategically redistributed to augment the Moment of Inertia (MOI), enhancing forgiveness. The incorporation of an elastomer insert guarantees a robust feel and sound, contributing to an overall satisfying and responsive experience.
The compact design, featuring a thin top line, minimal offset, and shorter blade length, is visually pleasing at address and caters to the discerning eye. This specific configuration was attained through collaboration with leading PING Tour professionals who sought a blade-style iron designed to provide optimal workability and control.
Precision-milled grooves deliver desired launch and spin for pinpoint control. Blueprint S, in tour player tests, exhibited higher ball speed than predecessors and enhanced max height for improved green-holding performance.
Tungsten toe screw and shaft tip weights enable swingweight adjustment. The narrow sole ensures consistent turf interaction in various conditions. Standard lofts align with Blueprint T and i230 for seamless set blending.
The 6-iron through PW are designed for workability and control, favored by PING pros who swiftly embraced the new design. Sahith Theegala, crediting a straighter ball flight and consistent distance, was the first to win with S. Louis Oosthuizen achieved back-to-back victories using a blended set of S and T.
