When elite golfers such as Viktor Hovland look down at an iron in the address position, there are things they want to see and things they don’t want to see. A thin topline, relatively little offset and clean looks are a must. Typically, they don’t like to see game-improving features such as a wide back piece that might enhance sound and feel, or an especially wide sole.

But with the creation of the new i59 irons, which replace the iBlade, Ping engineers have tried to sneak a few elements into a better-player’s iron to deliver more distance and forgiveness on mis-hits without sacrificing the feel and control that accomplished players demand.
