    Having just played there last month, i think it would be an awesome venue to watch the Ryder Cup, and at the same time, it would be horrible to try and navigate that course as a spectator.  If you're not on the fairways, there is basically no good ground to walk on everything else is either dunes or waste bunkers.   I'd try to find a set of bleachers where you could see multiple holes and camp out there. 


    Straits is my favorite place we have attended PGA or USGA events.. excellent spectator venue in my opinion if you are a reasonably able bodied person.  Lots of small hills and knolls to get a good vantage point... but the course is rather spread out so expect a LOT of walking.. bring good shoes... golf shoes preferred if you have them.

    Always fun to watch the unprepared ladies all dressed up in 6" heels and skirts trying to climb up a hill to get a better view.. lol.. 🤣

  2. This is one of the best testing opportunities I have seen.  Having testers fitted by a qualified rep is outstanding.  I have been fit for irons, putters, drivers, but never the top end of the bag and I really need to spend some time there!  I golf 4-5x per week and would be happy to share my experiences with the fitting and testing!

    Pick me!  Pick me!

    • Tony
    • Eau Claire, WI
    • Driver SS - 96
    • Handicap - 5
    • i200 irons up to 6i only
    • 26*, 22*, and 19* Ping G400 Hybrids
    • 16* Ping G SFT fairway wood adjusted to 15*
    • Right handed

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  3. I would love to test one of these out.  I've had a G30 SFT and now a G400 SFT.  I've used Ping's stock graphite shafts, tour graphite shafts, and now have a custom Mitsubishi Chemical C6 Blue in my current G400 SFT, so I have plenty of experience with the G series drivers... and would love to compare the new G410 to these.  I also have a Skytrak I use in the garage about 3x per week over the winter months, which makes for a lot of fun testing new clubs against my current gamers, and would be willing to share that data with the group as well if I get to test one of these.  Really hope to be considered to test one of these out!

    1. Your first name and home state-US Only - Tony, Wisconsin

    2. Your current handicap and driver swing speed - 5hcp.  Swing speed around 95mph

    3. Your current driver - G400 SFT

    4. List whether you would like to review the G410 Plus or G410 SFT -  Would prefer the G410 Plus since I can move the weight for the amount of draw bias I need and would like to see if this helps dial in my draw preference better than the SFT.  I would like just a smidge less draw help than the SFT provides so the Plus may be perfect here!  But am also very familiar with the SFT since I've used the SFT in my last 2 Ping drivers, so would not have any issues testing the SFT and comparing performance to my G30 SFT and G400 SFT instead.

    Thanks for the opportunity MyGolfSpy!


  4. Me Me Me!!  I've tried several iterations of the Ping i Series irons, and have always loved them.  Been looking at the i200s last time around, but not enough difference from the iE1 for me.  Would love to see if the i210 have pushed the envelope just that little bit further!


    Happy to review these and answer any questions from the forum!



    Your first name - Tony
    Your home state/province/country - Wisconsin, USA
    Your handicap - 4
    Your current irons set/shaft - Ping iE1, Nippon Modus 105 in stiff, standard length, U wedge through 5 iron.
    Your PING choice - i210 or i500 - i210 please!


    Looking forward to the opportunity!

  5. Wow, what an incredible opportunity.. as I get older, I find I'm losing just a touch of distance... would love to know if these can bring back a bit of what I'm losing...


    I'm typically on a lower trajectory guy, so also extremely curious if these pan out to be the higher launching, softer landing tools I'm looking for.  I would really love the opportunity to test and report out on these!


    - Your first name - Tony

    - State/Province/Country - Wisconsin, USA

    - Your current iron/shaft/flex makeup 

    1. Ping iE1, Modus Tour 105 in stiff, Red Dot, 5i-W
    2. Ping Glide 50, 56 (bent to 55), 60, Modus 105 Wedge shafts stiff, Red Dot but I just had them bent 1 degree more upright

    - Your 7-iron distance - 158-162 carry


    Fingers crossed!!

  6. Would love to demo this and provide feedback!



    First name:  Tony


    Home State/Province/Country:  Wisconsin, USA


    ​Do you use performance tracking?:  Yes!  I use a GameGolf today with a belt clip... and it's frustrating.   Looking for a better option!


    Do you use a GPS watch?:  No. I use a laser rangefinder, and GPS on my phone... would love to have just one device like this that does distances and tracking in one device


    Which ones?:  I use GolfShot GPS on my phone, and have a Nexus NX7 Rangefinder with slope



    This sounds like an excellent all in one option... 



  7. Well here goes!  What a great opportunity... I would be honored to participate!


    First the required details:


    1. Tony Brown, from Wisconsin, USA

    ​2. Current handicap is 4.  Swing speed is 93-96 mph

    3. My current driver is a Ping G30 SFT, neutral 10 degree setting, with a Mitsubishi C6 Blue shaft in Stiff @ 45.25", weighing in at D8.

    4. nFlight puts me into a G400 SFT, with Alta CB 55g Stiff shaft at the neutral 10 degree setting... I currently play my G30 SFT at D8, so would love to have the G400 demo swing weighted to close to that as well for consistency in comparing to my G30 SFT


    I'd love to try out the G400 version of the SFT head with Alta CB shaft, and compare against my G30 SFT gamer.  My only complaint with the G30 SFT is the spin can get a little higher than I would like, but not severe enough to make me switch... yet!  If the G400 SFT can knock a few hundred RPM of spin off for me, it would be perfect.


    I have a SkyTrak I use regularly, and play 5x per week as well... I feel I could provide some valuable feedback as well as some comparisons with the data I can get from my SkyTrak using not only the G400/Alta CB but compare with my gamer shaft as well on the G400 head.  Sure, the SkyTrak is not a GC Quad, but it provides reasonably accurate data for comparison purposes.


    Here's hoping to get the chance to test and provide feedback!

  8. Thank you MyGolfSpy for this wonderful opportunity.. even if not chosen to participate, I look forward to the testing information provided by the testers.

    Current Handicap -  3 hcp

    Current Iron Set - Ping G30


    Although I am pleased with my Ping G30 irons, I have been looking hard at the i200 series.  I am looking for a bit more control and workability in a very forgiving package, and the i200 irons are being marketed as just that.  


    I would very much like the opportunity to review these, provide feedback, and answer any question from other members.  I am also VERY interested to see how these stack up against the G30 irons in the forgiveness category.  The G30s are very forgiving.  I find it very hard to find good user comparisons between any of the game improvement irons and the i200s, since the fit different markets (GI vs Players irons). Ping states the MOI/forgiveness of the i200 irons matches that of earlier model G series game improvement irons, so I am really hoping a reviewer can provide that type of comparison to see how these truly stack up to the GI market.  I would also love to use some data to put these to the test against other irons using my Ernest Sports ES14.


    I play 5x per week and practice in between, and feel I can provide a very well written and comprehensive review.  I also attend several demo days offered in my town through the summer, but rarely is there a PING vendor with any offerings for head to head comparisons, so reviewing these would be a very enjoyable experience, especially during a demo day where I can do some additional comparisons.  


    I would enjoy testing these, even if they needed to be returned!


    Thank you, 



  9. Would love to try these... I have a whole Ping bag, glide wedges and g30 irons. Played the Eye2 wedges in the past as well, and am a big fan of the eye grind..



    Eau Claire, WI

    Short game is solid. Generally use my 56 with a high bounce for chipping. 40-50 yard pitches usually the 60 degree comes out, and enjoy using a little higher bounce wedge even in the 60.. 50 degree for the bump and runs and a lot of 3/4 and full shots.. my bump and run game needs a bit of help, and would appreciate a little more spin on the check up chips and pitches..


    Hope I get the chance, to help with these..

    Currently use Game Golf Live. I have also tried the game golf tags with the cell phone app using NFC, and have an Arrcos Driver as well, which I also Beta tested for Arccos.. I have also simply manually tracked clubs with no tags using the free game golf app, swing by swing caddie subscription, and the GolfShot app.


    Still no perfect solutions that I have come across, but Game Golf Live so far seems to have been the most reliable and hassle free, especially when editing during the round.


    Would love to give this one a shot compared to all the rest I have tried!



  11. The XR/XR Pro line has been on my list for a long time.. hit them at a demo day and loved them but had any opportunity to put them in play or compare to my 915D2 or G30 SF. Would love to put them head to head on my ES14 and use the fitting app and post results... would be great fun!


    Tony Brown

    Current gamer Ping G30 SF with Ping tour 80 shaft stiff flex

  12. These sound so awesome.. Would absolutely love the opportunity to test these and put them up against my G30, G30LS, G30SF, and 915D2.. would be a fun comparitive review I can post using my Ernest Sports ES14 and the new fitting app I just put on my iPad... would love to be considered for this!!
