  1. So PING is releasing an upgrade to the G30 driver. Does this surprise you? It's been 18 months... PING doesn't generally release a new driver just to release a new driver. I may have been in the minority in that I was not a fan of the G30 at all...but the G? I liked it a lot when we were there... One never knows... Here's the link -- check it out and report back! http://www.mygolfspy.com/ping-g-driver/
  2. PING is releasing its new G iron today -- no numbers, just "G." They're promising more distance, but from I could tell during our visit, they're promising more distance than the G30 -- they never said anything about EXPLOSIVE distance. They did give compelling reasons why hitting an 8 iron from 165 is better than hitting a 6 iron from 165 - and the Hyper 17-4 Technology is pretty darned cool. They basically "invented" a new material by patenting a heat-treat process that gives an old material (17-4 SS) some pretty cool properties. Anyway, check out the blog post here, and report back with your thoughts!

  4. Just wondering if any of the Ketsch owners out there have done a comparison of the two. Is the original better than the midsize? What differences did you notice etc etc. I have the original that was withdrawn because of the groove issue and haven't had the opportunity to try the new mid.
  5. Today I played with a guy that's one of the regulars in our Saturday morning game. I've noticed lately that the uses a Ping Ketsch. I've always liked the look of the putter. Several times today I ask to take a look at his. Along the way he mentioned that a small shop in town had one left for sale at a good price. So after my round I headed straight there. Sure enough they had it. And... it was the 2014 model that was taken off the market by Ping due to a deep grooves issue. The shop also had all equipment marked down due to going out of business. (That's another story but sad to see. I like the guy that owns it.) Needless to say I snapped it up. The model I purchased has a small sticker on the shaft noting that this particular was setup if you have a "slight Arc" with your stroke. I do. I wasn't really in the market for a putter but what the heck. This one is supposed top be a good one. I also read the reviews on MGS blog and it is a winner of the most wanted mallet in 2014. I'm excited to give it a try tomorrow in a practice session.
  6. Hey all! I would like to trade my Ping G30 9* driver head for a Ping G30 LS 9 or 10.5* driver head. Mine is in really great condition with the exception of 2 tiny tiny nicks in the crown and I would like the LS to be the same. I can post pictures tonight but I wanted to gauge intereste during the day. I can add a small amount of cash if you really think necessary! Hopefully trades are allowed and I am not breaking any rules!
  7. I am selling a few of my clubs. Here is a list. Please message me if interested for pictures. Ping Anser Driver, 10.5 degree. Great condition. Aldila NVS 65g stiff shaft, Aldila NV 55g stiff shaft, both included along with tool to change shafts. No head cover. Selling for $125. Bridgestone J40 445 driver, 10.5 degree, project x 6.0 stiff shaft. Great condition, selling for $120. Adams Super S 15 degree fairway wood, stiff shaft (stock). Like new condition, selling for $50. If anyone is interested in purchasing multiple clubs, I will make a package deal. Cost of shipping is not included, if you're interested give me your location and I'll let you know shipping costs. Thanks Beau
  8. In only its second month on the market, the PING G30 driver achieved the #1 sales position for units and dollars in the on- and off-course retail channels combined for the month of September in the United States and the United Kingdom, according to Golf Datatech LLC, which tracks golf equipment sell-thru data for both regions. The driver, which features an industry-first innovation called Turbulator Technology on the club's crown, was introduced to golfers on July 31. Since its launch, demand for the driver has reached unprecedented levels for the company throughout the world as golfers realize increased clubhead and ball speeds, leading to more distance. The G30 driver also features the highest MOI of any PING driver ever designed to ensure golfers the accuracy and consistency to hit more fairways. “The response to the G30 driver has been phenomenal,” said John A. Solheim, PING Chairman & CEO. “Our engineering team has created a club that is impacting the driver business unlike anything we've seen. Golfers all over the world are hitting the ball farther than ever with the G30 driver, thanks to Turbulator Technology.” Tour acceptance has also been swift, with the majority of PING's staff converting to the new G30 driver immediately. Angel Cabrera won The Greenbrier Classic the first week the driver was on the PGA Tour. Bubba Watson also put the G30 driver in his bag that same week. He finished the PGA Tour season No. 1 in driving distance with an average of 314.3 yards, including launching the longest drive of the season – 424 yards – at the Bridgestone Invitational. He increased his clubhead speed by 2 mph and ball speed by 4 mph – leading to a 10-yard distance gain during testing. Billy Horschel's switch to the new driver gained him 12 yards off the tee and played a big role in helping him win the FedExCup. After putting the G30 driver in his bag, he won twice, finished second and earned more than $13.4 million. “All golfers are benefitting from the technology of the G30 driver,” Solheim said. “The tour results speak for themselves, but we're hearing every day from golfers of all skill levels who are commenting on how the driver has changed their games. They love the turbulators.”
  9. Ok everyone this is a draft that i will be editing/"fluffing" a bit tomorrow but I'm throwing it out here tonight. I think we should start this thread sooner rather than later. For those of you that haven't made your late summer trip to the local golf store thinking there will be nothing new to see you might want to give it a shot. Here in the KC metro the Ping reps are making their rounds and setting up the fitting carts with all the new G30 equipment for preorders on the late July official release. In other words the demo's are out. ///Things I've learned so far//// //////////////////////// Things are a changin at Ping. New releases with more adjustability Better performance and with, in my opinion, better looks with each release. "Well done PING!" Seems as though that is the theme around here lately but that praise is pretty undeniably well deserved. Ping has a strong reputation for doing things right, sticking to their core beliefs as a company, and generally being pretty damned impressive. I hear it everywhere , believe it, yet I only have a two Ping products in my bag. That doesn't mean I don't like their product I just use whatever best fits my needs without brand consideration( as much as anyone really can). Never the less I still get excited for the next new release each time hoping the next one will be one that I can game. New releases are awesome...mostly New club releases, especially drivers, are about as good as it gets. Chatter,excitement, even arguments...We get pretty keyed up over it one way or another. All the way up to the release and even after for a while there is no bigger Buzz in the game of golf! Its awesome and one of my favorite things about this game. Of course everything has its downside and new equipmentreleases, as much as I love them, are no exception. One thing we all hate with new releases,, more specifically with the implementation of new adjustability,,,is that our collections of adapters and high end shafts become scrap that must be painstakingly parted out. New adapters must be found at what seems an extreme expense and often after a long wait for their already loyal customers. The price we pay for progress I suppose but at times it would appear they aren't exactly trying to make it easier for us. Ping it seems is addressing this, at least in part, and making the transition a little smoother. Yes the new ping adapters are different and no you cant use your old tips in the new equipment. We wanted more adjustability and now we are going to get it. But this time however I am happy to share with you that Ping will now offer components for its new clubs in the G30 line including adapters and even shafts. Shaftoids get your epoxy ready! That's right no waiting 6 months for them to be available. You can call ping customer service right now for pricing.....or read it below. Adapters- $20/pc (must be purchased in three pack so your retailer may ask you to buy all of them ...maybe not ) Shafts- I cant speak for aftermarket ( which i know went up from last year) but the stock shafts very reasonable as well 30 dollar upgrade for this shaft with the club but only 60 for a second shaft in a different flex *tfc tour price To me this is news. Tinkerers like myself are not only getting the extra adjustability and wiggle room for an ever changing poor swing, we are getting access to more options at a better price and So whether this makes you want to run right out and demo all the new Pings....I dunno. But for me its just another factor in my consideration for "whose club do I choose" and for me the options any club affords me has always been a factor. ///My First Demo/// /////////////////////// I was able to get my hands on the G30 yesterday at a local Golfsmith. I was hitting my own Prov1x balls and using a brand new Foresight Gc2 monitor to test. *Thanks as always to my friends at GS* THE PING G30 PING G30 9 degree head set in std for this test....with the TFC Tour 65 in Stiff *would have preferred to demo the x but they hadn't' received that option for their cart as of yet. Pings Tour shafts come cut to a shorter length of 45.25 vs the 45.75 of the Tfcd shafts Adjustability as you know by now is up or down +/-.6 or +/-1.0 degrees. Double the adjustability of previous models *I will come back later and update with further images of my own Looks "Trekky gets Trekkier" I once saw a video review about the Ping Anser that called the crescent alignment aid, and I quote, "Klingon-Esq". This was a reference that I recognized but could not fully appreciate. Alright, I technically appreciated, yes I watched it but I was around 8 years. Cut me some slack. Anyway as soon as I saw this club I was instantly reminded of that review and I cant deny it this time, these clubs look star trek inspired. I'm not saying it looks bad I just posing the possibility that star trek has a fan in the design department in Arizona.....anyway..back to the review First, I really actually do like the look of this club in person. This is one, that for me, was tough to appreciate in the online shots. The Turbulators are not nearly as pronounced as i thought they would be in seeing the sneak peek images online and elsewhere. They do, as i've heard others say, frame the ball extremely well. I'm sure that purists will probably shy away from its razorbacked appearance but that is some the price you pay for being different. Colors are back in ping and this time its bold, blue, and awesome.The blue is really cool mixed with matte and gloss. Putting all that together this might be the best looking club from Ping in quite some time. The 460 head seems big and friendly down by the ball. Nothing new here from the the G25. It sits nice and square just like I like it and I have always been a fan of the matte finish. One other thing the turbulators do for me visually, which is an improvment over the G25, is that they draw my focus away from the large foot print of the club. Generally I dont do well with large heads and for whatever reason my misses generally tend to get bigger as "cc's" increase. Not the case here I do feel like I have to tee it up a bit further so that i can get my usual angle of attack but other than that probably unnecessary adjustment I felt very comfortable addressing the ball. The TFC Tour optional shaft is a metallic pewter color that look great with this head. I might prefer the blue but only slightly and because I'm starting to like louder flashier colors personally, and because it matches the head. Feel I base this experience on my test of the G25. The G25 for one is very loud even on the best struck shots, very firm feeling, and has a "touch" that tells you that you missed but doesn't feel abysmal like one off the hosel of a bladed iron. The G30's feel is very similar but seems softer, in my opinion, because of the lower sound. It certainly isn't muted and it is still very metalic "clack".... but it is noticeable quieter and subdued. I would say the overall sound and feel for me, a person who prefers much softer dull sounding clubs, are down from obnoxious to the tolerable. At least my ears weren't ringing. WORTH A MENTION Very often with all there is to talk about in a new release there are inevitably details that get left out or set aside. One luxury I have in this format is not having to care about space, how many words are in the review, or am I going to lose a reader at any given point. Basically I can blather on for ever, ie see this paragraph, and nobody can say "boo" about it. So with that lets spend a minute on a little spoken of aspect of this new line and what is actually a noteworthy change. The new grip. The Ping 5L - From the website "The 5L grip features a firmer texture in the upper portion to help control direction and a softer texture in the lower portion for enhanced feel. It is available in two versions - round for clubs with PING's Trajectory Tuning+ Technology, and ribbed for the hybrids and irons." I actually heard this was a new after demoing the club, or I should say I confirmed that it was because going in I had no idea. Anyway I noticed it. That is probably the most important thing to takeaway because everything else I tell you about the grip is strictly subjective. I was probably three swings in when I actually took a look at the grip. . Usually I have a hard time with demo clubs because I normally use mid sized grips and secondly because they are usually dirty, cheap, and impossible to hold on to without going white knuckle on them. Yes, these demos were brand new and practically unhit giving the 5L's a definite unfair advantage but regardless of that I really liked the feel. For those of us that refuse stock grips as an option I encourage you to give the 5L a shot. Performance Performance of course is where it all comes together. The G25 for my swing was never ideal. It would produce spins and launch combinations outside my personal range of "acceptable loss". I would have more shots than not that would produce spins that would were too high and would have to be in lofts that were lower than I wanted to play in order to keep them in check. The G25 always produced great ballspeed with supreme accuracy and forgiveness but the spin rates where simply not acceptable. For the G30 something changed, whether it is due to the stock Tour shaft option, the head design itself, my swing changes over the past year, or it could be something else I haven't considered. Regardless all those problems seemed to have gone away. As I mentioned I was testing in the Stiff Tour 65 and that i would have preferred to use the X flex as that it what tends to work best for me in most setups. Even with the looser shaft i was able to keep my spins and launch very close to what i consider to be ideal. ballspeed average 15 shots= 165 (160 low - 168 high) Launch average 15 shots = 16.5 (14.5 -low- 17.8 high) Spin average 15 shots = 2300 - (ranging from 1900 to 2500 top to bottom) If i had taken the loft down to the -.6 or -1 degree setting, or had the Tour X flex, or better yet both I could have easily gotten those spin rates down to the 1900 to 2k range.These numbers are good but not far off from what I have seen from any other club I have been testing that is set up properly for my swing. That being said the thing that was notable, but not surprising, was the the dispersion. Two 5 to 6 shot groups would have fit in a space about as big as my driveway on group dead center of the fairway and the other just left 15 yds. The rest of the shots where misses that i over turned but kept in play.. I was having a good day but head to head with my current gamer this club was tighter. As for shape bias i think I would have to say it has one, straight, the ball started straighter and stayed straighter than probably any drive I have hit. They say the more rearward and lower COG helps to close the face and i would have to say that from what have seen that is true. My shots generally are push draws. The G30 continually produced less of a push and less of a draw . Again and Again almost right down the line ...Lot of fun to hit really. And no fear on swinging away with the large 460 footprint. Again not really a surprise considering pings performance in their G lines for accuracy. DO TURBULATORS WORK? The big question. I don't doubt that they do something. I have seen others test this and I do trust Pings word. But as of right now I cant say whether I was able to achieve any more club head speed with this over the G25. At least not in this test. I did not have a trackman or my sc100 . Even if I did have either of those units I don't have the capability of testing identical setups for a truly valid test anyway. I did average 2 mph more ballspeed with the G30 over the G25 but that could be attributed to better fitting shaft and heavier head weight. I will do further testing on another day to find out more on that. FWIW they do serve as a functional alignment aid that I grew more and more fond of them as the session progressed. ///Conclusion- a positive experience //////////////////////////////////////// To sum it up I have to say that I would consider putting this one in the bag if I got a chance to test it outdoors on the course. I'm suspect I would lose on top end distance but only marginally so, maybe 5 yds. If I scored it the way MGS does with "true distance" I don't think it would even be much of a contest combining good days and bad. So if 5yds loss meant more confidence and hitting more fairways I'm sold. I think the important thing here is that I found this club capable of producing high launch and low spins that I am looking for with very high levels of accuracy and all with better sound and feel than last years model. So what your experience? What do you think of the new blue? How about those turbulators? Lets hear what you have to say. Guests don't be shy sign in and sound off.
  10. In this post, we wanted to give everyone an inside look into our handmade putter grip process. From start to finish it takes our professionally trained staff about 20-25 minutes to fully assemble each putter grip. 1. First, we begin by selecting which size grip underlist we are going to need for theorder. For this project we have chosen a midsize grip underlist. 2. Next, we select the leather pattern and color that we are going to use to make our grip. For this project we have selected a Brown Alligator leather. 3. We then cut our selected leather into the appropriate midsize pattern and punch holes along the edges to prepare for the hand stitching. 4. Next, we use a mild adhesive to secure the leather section into the proper position for the hand stitching process. 5. We then proceed to lace the leather piece together by hand using a brown stitch that matches the leather color. 6. Now that we have the hand stitching in place, we are ready to clean up the leather edges and any extra stitch by tucking the excess leather under the grip caps and trimming off any excess stitching. 7. At last, the grip is complete. It is then packaged and shipped out to the customer. The Ace of Clubs Golf Co., the exotic look without the exotic price. http://www.aceofclubsgolfco.com/blogs/news
  11. I purchased a 35" slight arc 355 gram Ping Ketsch putter based largely on the stellar reviews found on MGS. While I question some of the metrics used in the Most Wanted Mallet Testing, (For example, I don't think that the distance of a "miss" for a 4 or 5 foot putt has any statistical meaning or validity. It should be ignored, because while a 12" miss may be 100% greater than a 6" miss, neither putt is in the cup and no one will miss the next stroke) what I saw in the MGS survey convinced me that the Ketsch and Ping's TR technology were worth a look. So I set out to buy one. This proved difficult. No local shop or club had a Ketsch on site to look at. Few of the sales reps I spoke to had even heard of the club. Finally I had to order one sight unseen from Golfsmith for about $195. Fortunately, I knew my specs from my previous Odyssey Two Ball. In short order the club arrived and I swapped in a SuperStroke 2.0 mid slim grip and began my testing. I started with 240 putts from 3 distances (4 ft, 7 ft, and 15 ft) in a "round the clock" pattern around gently sloping holes, putting from 8 stations radiating in spokes around the hole. I putted 8 putts per round with the Ping, then 8 with Odyssey, alternating the order and the starting position for each of 10 rounds, or 80 putts from each distance with each putter. I won't bore you with the statistics and the measurements of my misses. I did not count the miss distances from 4 ft, only the make percentages, but I did compute the miss distances and make percentages from 7 and 15 ft. I found that the Ping was slightly better at make percentages from all distances, but only slightly better. From 4 ft, the Ketsch's advantage was so slight that I felt it was within the margin of error. If I repeated the test, the Odyssey could just as easily come out on top the next time. However, the Ping was significantly better on all its miss distances and this was readily apparent to the naked eye even before any stats were computed. It was extremely easy to cosy a ball close to a hole for a perfunctory tap in. I also never rolled a putt so far by the hole that I had a knee knocker coming back. The most common miss with the Ping was short. And if not outright short, it was a foot to one side or another, indicating that I had misjudged speed on a breaking putt that died below the hole. After this test, I'd seen enough. I sold the Odyssey and kept the Ping. (Got $91 for it on ebay.) I took the Ping out on the course and put it through its normal paces. Instantly, I saw that it was very good at long lag putts. I rarely left myself in three putt danger. It was also superb at downhill sliders. I was able to feel my way to ginger lags that didn't run out of control. But I did not see any improvement on short putt makes or on makeable birdies. And I found myself constantly coming up short. Over time, perhaps with over 500 putts hit, I noticed some common denominators. In noticed that the TR grooves (which are quite sharp) really grab a ball. So much so that they seem to smush into a cover, often with very little sound and super soft feel. This seems to cause the ball to roll in tighter contact with the grass and make putts more susceptible to grain, break, surface imperfections, and blade height. Short putts curve more, especially as they lose speed. They also skid or slip less. I was able to put the Ketsch on line fairly easily thanks to its alignment aids and I was able to make solid strokes only to find myself curling up short or to one side with little improvement in my score. Armed with this info, I began to really focus on imaginary target holes behind the real hole. This is a common trick to maintain putter pace, but I never did it with my Odyssey because too often I'd ram a putt 6 ft by if I did. But with the Ketsch it worked like a charm. My imaginary target spot now moves from 1 to 5 ft behind the hole depending on the length of the putt, and with slippery downhill sliders I simply "turn off" the imaginary target an focus on the hole. The results were shocking. With more pace, my putts held their lines, and it turned out that they were on good lines all along, thanks to the ease of aiming the Ketsch. My 4 and 5 ft make percentage soared. My make percentage on 10 to 20 footers also soared. Long lags remained very good. Now the Ketsch is putter that the MGS survey touted Now I understand what the fuss is about. Bottom line with the Ketsch: Feel is excellent, ease of aiming and ease of making a good stroke is excellent. Pace is a problem and you'll have to force yourself to hit putts harder than you are used to, but once you dial it in, it's very easy to control pace. Be prepared for putts to break more and skid less. While I quibble over the MGS survey's stats, I have no complaint about their conclusion. The Ketsch is a phenomenal putter.

  13. Hi guys, I am looking for your expertise here. I am a long time golfer who just got back into the game a year ago. I have been practicing for the last year and have got my handicap down to a 19. I decided for Father's Day that I wanted a new driver so that is what I did last Saturday. I went to my local big box store, Golfsmith, and got “fitted” for a new driver. The fitter had me hit the Callaway X2 Hot 9º, Taylormade SLDR 10.5º, Cobra Bio Cell 9.5º, and the Ping G25 9.5º. I honestly enjoyed hitting all of them and for me, didn't hit any of them bad. The fitter used the launch monitor to check launch angle, club/ball speed, and spin to make sure I had the correct shaft and loft. Spin numbers were close to the same on all of them and I was surprised the SLDR spin numbers weren't lower than the other clubs. I carried the X2 Hot the furthest and since none of them really stood out I went with the X2 for the low price. Mind you I haven't opened/used the club because I may return it based on what is said here. My question is since I am a high handicapper is it not necessary for a more comprehensive fitting then what I received? I read articles on here where guys are being fitted with different shafts, lofts…to achieve the numbers the fitter is after. I just didn't feel like this guy did that. It was more like "let's find you a club you will buy today.” I want to make sure I get the best club for my money. Any advice you guys can give me would be great. Thanks.

  16. Looking to trade my 35" Ping Anser Milled #5 putter. The #5 has a long neck on a traditional Anser head to make it a face balanced blade. Looking to trade for another blade putter as this one has found its way out of the rotation. Would like to trade for another plumbers neck blade, 34" or longer. The following are my love-to-have putters but I'll consider anything of similar value. ($300 putter when I bought it new this summer) Nike Method Midnight 006 Scotty Cameron Monterey/Newport 2 Bettinardi's, Byron's etc. I can post more recent photos if you'd like. Grip, putter and headcover are all in pristine shape. Let me know if you have any questions, thanks!
