Ping Driver Fit

I was fitted to a Ping G15 draw driver with a 10.5 degree head and regular flex stock shaft. I hit the driver very well however I do not generate enough back spin 1800rpm. The ball will not stay in the air long enough to achieve max distance potential. How do I correct this issue or is it a swing fault that is causing the low back spin number?

Leonard,

Without seeing you swing, it is difficult to say, but the Ping driver is not a particularly low spin club. I might look to a lesson to see why the spin and distance is low. If the swing is okay, a higher loft or lower kick shaft might be an option.

Regards,

Jeff
