Tried & Tested: Ping Serene Irons
by Carly Cummins
February 20, 2013

Price: £665

They say: The combination of forgiving irons and easy-to-hit hybrids is specially engineered for women to optimise distance and accuracy, and provide accurate gapping between clubs.

By blending 4, 5 and 6 hybrids with perimeter-weighted irons, you'll have an easier time launching the ball high for longer results throughout the set.

I say: These are the perfect set of irons for the mid-high handicap lady golfer as they are so easy to use. The mixture of irons in the shorter clubs and hybrids to replace those difficult to hit long irons is spot-on.

Ping has long been the champion of producing oversized irons that look impossible to miss and this is certainly the case with the new ladies Serene set - they give the impression of complete forgiveness when you address the ball. As you would expect the results are extremely pleasing.

The beauty of the Serene set is that you don't have to hit your shots perfectly out of the middle to get results, even a slight mishit will still travel a decent distance and much straighter than you would expect. This will fill beginners and game-improvers with great confidence and get them enjoying golf straight away. In my opinion the styling of the Serene set is also spot-on - the classy purple pattern and complementing grips gives just the right amount of femininity without going overboard.

Put simply the Serene are hard to fault. I even think that the better lady golfer with a lower handicap might be tempted to switch to these because they are so easy to use, it's like cheating!
