A four-step, multi-stage process for the one-piece forging provides very tight dimensional tolerance control, resulting in a true shotmaker's iron crafted with precision, for precision. The choice of 8620 carbon steel combined with a head design that concentrates mass through the impact zone delivers a pleasing sound and feel.
Based on requests from several PING professionals for a blade-style iron sized and shaped to deliver the ultimate in workability and trajectory control, Blueprint combines a clean, compact head with less offset, a shorter blade length and a thin topline.
A machined tungsten toe screw adds forgiveness, and combines with an internal heel weight to provide precise swing-weight tuning. The narrower sole enables clean turf interaction for consistent strikes from different lies and turf conditions to maximize versatility for playing all types of shots. A hydropearl chrome 2.0 finish helps ensure solid impact by repelling moisture.
Every detail is exact and carefully calculated. More than 50 steps in the manufacturing process, including precision-machining of the face and grooves, are 100% inspected.
“The feel is amazing,” reports PING pro Louis Oosthuizen, a consultant on Blueprint’s design. He was the first player to put the new irons in his bag and the first to win with them. “I love the feedback I get and how smoothly they go through the turf from any lie. The Blueprint’s workability gives me the control to hit all the shots with the precision I need to win
