  1. Contact Customer Service @ 800-474-6434 to discuss the work you want done and pricing. The repair form is located here: https://ping.com/en-us/club-repair
  2. Priceless story for sure! Sand Canyon used to be a 36 hole course until they shut down the front nine of the original Mountain course. The new owner has done a very decent job with the Mountain, Valley and Desert 9's since taking over. Not sure if you've had the chance to play Rancho Vista in Antelope Valley but it's a good track and only 30 minutes away. Other local-ish courses you may want to check out if you haven't already: Rustic Canyon, Moorpark CC, and Tierra Rejada - all in Moorpark, Sterling Hills in Oxnard, and Olivas Links in Ventura (especially now that summer has started).
  3. Adidas Crossknit DPR if you don't need a spiked waterproof shoe. It has a full length Boost midsole - ultra comfort, super support, lightweight, and relaxed toe box. They're under $100, and can be bought on Amazon or any number of online golf stores. Awesome shoe...check the reviews.
  4. Should be the same price for your Ping Eye 2's. Ironically, it's the new clubs that they cannot refurbish to look as good as new. When I called to get a quote on my G410's, the rep advised that the newer irons & wedges with the hydrophobic finish cannot be refinished like the older models. Your irons are legend...you should call and get a quote. Also, +1 for orange dot (now that's flat) & +1 for Santa Clarita (Awesometown!)
  5. G2M - Those G30's came out great. Hope you're hitting them well. I'm about to send my G410 irons back. Unfortunately, their proprietary Hydropearl finish on their newer irons/wedges cannot be refinished to "new". They will be able to refill the paint lines and buff out any big nicks but the faces won't come out like the Karstens or G30's. Still a great deal for a great service...Just under $20/club to regrip the 410's with new CP2 Pro's and the whole refurb process. Will start a new thread with pics when they come back so folks have an idea of what to expect with the new 400 line.
  6. Happy Friday Fellow Spies! Leaving on 9/30 for a 1 week trip to Florida and will have 2 - 3 free days to play golf. Any public course recommendations? Under $200/round and riding only.
  7. Definitely agree KansasKing. It's an awesome value added service that is affordable and fast. Where are you located in Kansas? I lived in JoCo for about 2 years back in the early 2000's...sure do miss Joe's KC/Oklahoma Joes and Jack Stack.
  8. I called the customer service line. Be aware they have limited operating hours, M - F 7:00am to 11:00am MST. The customer service rep created the work order and provided an estimated quote ($17/club). They give you a reference number to put on the shipping box and their shipping address in AZ. UPS 2 Day from CA was $21 for 8 irons. The Ping tech called me 2 days later confirming the requested work and then took payment. Hardest part of this whole process was playing loaner clubs that weekend I love the dark grey finish on the G30's. I believe the G series that came afterwards was more of a silver color (and added ferrules).
  9. Welcome Shawn! Couple of questions...Are you a Trekkie? How's Van Nuys playing these days? I used to play there decades ago with my older brother - lots of good memories.
  10. Wanted to share the awesome work that Ping did with my iron refresh. I should have taken some before shots because they were in fairly rough shape being 7 years old and seeing about 40 - 50 rounds a year. $17/club to get them looking as good as almost new - they even bent (black to red) my SW replacement that I purchased off Ebay after losing my original. New paint, badges, buffed and returned with iron covers. They received on 9/10 and I received back on 9/16. Exceptional work and service and cost.
  11. In March: Switched out EXO 7 for a Stroke Lab 10. In July: Switched out R15 driver for a PXG 0211 Gen 2 Driver. In August: Switched out 2014 Karsten irons 5 - P, U, S for PXG Gen2 0311XF. In September: Looking to switch out 2014 Karsten 4H & 5H with Cobra One Length Hybrids - F9, Speedzone, or Radspeed (TBD) I don't carry FW woods so the only club that I'm not actively looking to replace is a CBX 60*. Also - the Karsten irons went back to Ping for refurbishment ($17/per club). They'll likely go back in the bag and kick the PXG 0311's to the bench.
  12. Agree with the Costco route…2 dozen 3-piece urethane balls for $25. Forget all of these non-urethane balls as they’re oranges in an apples comparison. For the price, value, performance and availability, Kirkland Signature 3-piece urethane cover golf ball v2.0 is your ball.
  13. Indeed JD! Sterling Hills, Moorpark, Olivas Links, Tierra Rejada, River Ridge and Soule Park just to get started
  14. Hi Spies - Long time forum lurker joining this awesome community. How long have you been playing golf? 9 years this August. Started playing in my late 30's. What’s your handicap or normal score? 18.9 What do you love about golf? Being outdoors and enjoying the day with old friends and making new friends. Having some drinks, slicing some drives, chunking the wedges, pushing some putts, losing a headcover, shotgun starts & shotgun brews, 19th hole, post round meals and Venmo'ing golf bets back and forth. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I'm always googling golf stuff and MGS is just an awesome repository of data. Non-biased product testing and reviews set MGS apart from the pack. The Most Wanted articles and data insights are exceptional. Don't know any other Spies...that I'm aware of. Where are you from? What is your home course? Los Angeles. Sand Canyon Country Club. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Worst - LA Muni weekend pace of play. Summer weather in LA County. Finding a weekend Tee-Time. Best - Ventura County, Santa Barbara County, Central CA, and Coachella Valley golf. What do you do for a living? Project Management How’d you pick your user name? It's an old gamertag.
