  3. Ping does indeed! I'm lucky that I live about 30 miles from Ping's UK Headquarters so going for a custom fitting is too easy
  4. Love the Stretch. Only real problem with it is that I hit it a bit too far so it's encroaching on driver distance! The S57's have been ITB for a looong time 😊 I really like them and don't find the modern equivalents to be a significant step up. I think they'll eventually have to be replaced as they'll have worn out! Mind you I do like the look of the new Ping i210 and i500 irons. They may tempt me to swap 😉
  5. The Stretch 3 is in the bag because I was looking for a club to use as an alternative off of the tee when I want more accuracy than the driver. I tried the standard 3 wood and didn't find it to my liking. I just couldn't hit it consistently. The Stretch 3 is a bit stronger at 13* (std loft w/o using the +/- 1* of the Ping tip adaptor) compared to 14.5* for the standard 3 wood. It also has a bigger head at 184cc volume compared to 169 for the standard 3 wood. I've got my Stretch 3 set up to 14* and like that bigger head to look down on. It may not sound like much but it makes a big difference to me 😀👌🏼🏌🏼‍♂️🏌🏼‍♂️ BTW- it's still fine to use off the fairway too!
  6. What is in my bag Pooley7 Driver: Ping G Series 10.5* with Alta S-Flex 3 wood: Ping G Series Stretch 13* with Alta S-Flex 5 wood: Ping G Series 17.5* with Alta S-Flex Hybrid: Ping G10 18* with 65g DBS Tour Hybrid Prototype S-Flex Hybrid 2: Ping G10 24* with 65g DBS Tour Hybrid Prototype S-Flex 5 - PW Irons: Ping S57 with Ping AWT S-Flex Wedges: Ping Tour-W 54* & 58* with Ping AWT S-Flex Putter: Odyssey O Works 1W with Superstroke 2.0 XL grip Cart Bag: Bennington Organizer QO-9 All irons and wedges gripped with Lamkin Oversize grips. Woods and hybrids gripped with Ping ID-8 360 Midsize (gold) grips. Typing this makes me think what a Ping fan you must think I am. I suppose it's true, but I have had other clubs in my bag, it just seems a Ping-fest at the moment 🤷🏻‍♂️
  7. Graham Lincolnshire, England Handicap - 8 Currently using Ping S57 - AWT Stiff shaft + 1/2” with Lamkin crossline oversize grips Ping i500 I'm beginning to struggle with the S57s and love the idea of the i500s. I hope they would help me in my desire to not just fight the increase of my handicap as I'm getting older, but to reverse it and help me get to category 1 single figures. Fingers crossed 🤞🏼
  8. Hi Just discovered mygolfspy- thank you Twitter! 😀 Looking forward to reading all the articles and generally talking/reading about our favourite pastime A bit about me - love not long turned 50 and have been playing golf since my early teens. I'm a member of Grimsby GC which is in Lincolnshire, England. I am fighting to stay in single figures - currently 8 handicap- and I use mainly Ping clubs, G series woods, G10 hybrids and S57 irons
