The Ping G15 fairway wood shares a lot in common with the G15 driver including the external sole weight pad and a slightly longer head design which Ping says increases the MOI compared to the G10.
The biggest visual change is the low profile design that features a shallow face that further lowers the centre of gravity to help increase that MOI.
In our tests the G15 fairway wood performed very well and the sound and feel at impact was much more solid than the G10. At address it looks great with the new alignment aid first used in the Rapture woods, which thankfully replaces the moon graphic from previous G fairways.
Visually the changes to the Ping G15 are not as noticeable as the performance changes, which give a good strong flight that can be moved left and right.
Whilst this club is aimed at all golfers we feel it is ideal for mid to high handicappers as the forgiveness and trajectory are excellent. For those who want a slightly lower flight then we would recommend trying out the excellent Ping i15 fairway wood.

Ping G15 Fairway Wood - Product Details
The new Ping G15 range of fairway woods have kept the best of the excellent G10 fairway and improved on some aspects to give a truly versatile fairway wood that should appeal to all types of player. With a slightly shallower face (that Ping tell us contribute to increased MOI) that adherents of the G10 will notice the club looks slightly more assured at address than its predecessor and it appears to provide a slightly more elevated trajectory from a solid strike. The G15 is as forgiving as the G10 fairway and is still pretty impressive in the distance stakes.
Yet again Ping have really delivered for the mid to high handicappers with this excellent fairway wood. The technology draws heavily on the changes made in the G15 driver and the results are similarly positive. Ping promise this is an easy club to get up in there and so it proves. It performs well both off the deck and from a tee and gives a consistent enough performance to be a decent replacement for the driver (although you won’t have a lot of trouble hitting the G15 driver). I actually felt this was consistently longer than the old G10 fairway wood and that, combined with the excellent forgiveness, should be enough to persuade a lot of people to upgrade. I’d certainly consider making room for it my bag.
