NEW PING G430 LST Driver popularity continues to soar on PGA Tour right now!

There are many impressive new golf drivers hitting the shelves in 2023, but few have seemingly impressed more on the PGA Tour than the brand new PING G430 LST Driver

Although PING launched its new driver range a little earlier than some of the other brands on the PGA Tour this season, the G430 LST Driver's popularity has continued to soar both in terms of player count and tournament wins. 

WATCH our review of the NEW G430 LST Driver below: 

The G430 LST Driver was once again #1 on the PGA Tour at last week's Sony Open where 24 of them were in play in the first full-field tournament of the season. 

This marks the fifth time the G430 LST Driver has been the most played driver on the PGA Tour since the new family's debut at the Shriners Children's Open in October.

Since its launch, the G430 LST Driver has been in the bag of five winners on Tour, including three on the PGA Tour. 

Keegan Bradley used the driver en route to his fifth PGA Tour title and first in more than four years at the ZOZO Championship in October. 

Bradley is not a PING staff player, though. 

Later that month, Seamus Power used the driver to capture his second PGA Tour title at the Butterfield Bermuda Championship. 

Sahith Theegala then teamed up with Tom Hoge to win the QBE Shootout in December, an end-of-season team event backed by now LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman

Power and Theegala are both PING staff players. 

Here's a look at their driver specs: 

  • Keegan Bradley, ZOZO Championship: PING G430 LST Driver (10.5 degrees; Fujikura Ventus Black 6 X)
  • Seamus Power, Butterfield Bermuda Championship: PING G430 LST Driver (9 degrees; Accra TZ6 Proto 65 M5)
  • Sahith Theegala, QBE Shootout (w/ Tom Hoge): PING G430 LST Driver (10.5 degrees; Project X HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX 60 TX) 

Mackenzie Hughes (Sanderson Farms Championship) and Tony Finau (Houston Open) have also won with a G425 LST Driver on the PGA Tour this season, and Viktor Hovland won Tiger Woods' Hero World Challenge tournament, an unofficial event on the PGA Tour, with a G425 LST Driver, too. 

PING informs that more than 100 Tour pros have now switched into the G430 Drivers for 2023.
