  1. What's going on MGS members? My name is Kyle and I am from Ohio- I've been using MGS for almost a year now but decided recently to start posting and looking at the forums to help my game out, and see what cool new equipment is out there! I used to be a College Baseball player, but now my passion is golf- I would play everyday if I could and almost wish that I would have started playing earlier in life I started playing in 2015 - Currently on the road to break 80- best round an 85.. I am not one of those golfers that will overstate my skills or how far I hit it because of an ego thing- If i want to be a single digit handicap then I gotta work for it golf is like baseball in that way ! For those that want to know or interested in WIB Taylormade M1 8.5 Fujikura Motore Speeder Tour Spec 6.2 vc X Stiff Taylormade M2 3 Hybrid 75 g Ping iBlades 4-pw Dynamic Gold S400 Vokey Wedges 52 (F-grind) 56 (M Grind) 60 (M Grind) Huntington Beach #6 putter Taylormade TP5X My twitter is @LifeWithKB3 if any of you guys have that Hope to talk to you guys with WIB, awesome courses you've played/golf trips, about new equipment you have or seen, cool drives, or on twitter !

  2. I look at the bags of people I play with and think, wow! I seriously need to sort my kit out! Don't get me wrong, I do like my irons (Mizuno MP30 3-PW), but I am sure that being so old and so well used, they are not helping my game much anymore. My bag is okay, but my trolley - OMG! - It's one of those old Titleist square tube fold-up jobbies haha! I have a mixture of wedges and these too are old (apart from my Callaway 56 degree) and my woods are also quite ancient when it comes to comparing against the adjustable modern drivers of the last few years or so! Driver sounds like a frying pan! I love the look and feel of the new Taylormade P-Series irons and Titleist have always been a firm favourite in terms of both look and feel. I've also hit a few shots on the range with the Mizuno MP4 - wow such a sexy looking set of sticks!! I'd love to just get myself fitted and start a new chapter in my golfing career, but fallen on hard times and although on an upward curve now, this is not likely to happen for some time. Would be nice to be a test subject, I reckon! #Taylormade #Titleist #Mizuno #Callaway #Ping - I'll Be Your Guinea Pig if you need normal people to test your clubs. I would blog and brag all day about your brand - I'm active in many groups and follow so many blogs, I have also just started to get a decent following on my FB Fan Page and building a group - https://www.facebook.com/SunsetSafarisGolf/#- https://www.facebook.com/groups/SunsetAfricanSafariandGolf/ I play off 8, have been as low as 3, so please pick me !

  4. Just bought a new set of glide wedges, and although I love the non-tapered, longer grips that come standard, I like the consistency of having the same feeling grips on all clubs (I use GP Tour Wraps on everything.) I thought I might have a go at regripping the Glide wedges, but building up the grip to reduce the amount of taper. I would lose the benefit of the longer grip, but I feel that's a trade-off. Anyways, anyone else play with their wedges like this? How much tape do you tend to use? Any other pros/cons I'm missing (I realize the dyla grips are heavier.)

  6. (4) TESTERS WANTED PING Glide 2.0 Wedges Can PING's new wedges change your short game? For most golfers, the search for a new short game begins and ends with Vokey, Cleveland or Callaway – the Holy Trinity of Wedges. PING feels its new Glide 2.0 wedges should be part of that conversation, thanks to new sole grinds, improved groove technology and spin-preserving hydrophobicity (look it up). Add a host of no-upcharge shaft options and PING's legendary color-coded customization and you have a wedge the company feels belongs on the main stage. Testers Wanted! As you know, MyGolfSpy never takes an OEM's word for anything. We believe in #datacratic testing, and #PowerToThePlayer isn't just a hashtag, it's a mission statement.

  7. The picture have been circulating of the new i200's....anyone heard whether it's just another iron range that Ping will be releasing or will they be releasing woods as well or they sticking with the G range for this year?
  8. Glad to be a part of GolfSpy! Central Texas golfer that enjoys reading about, hearing about, and playing golf! Looking forward to seeing some of you all on the first tee!

  10. Beautiful old set of Karsten 1 irons, all matching serial numbers, original shafts. Never abused, and kept in climate controlled environment as long as I've had them. Pictures include face of the PW...grooves still in excellent condition. All grooves on all clubs in this or better shape. Make me a good offer, please!
  11. Fellow golfers: The TL/DR version: At what point at the bottom of the talent and skill scale is the quality of the club irrelevant to the golfer's ability (assuming a basic level of quality)? The full version: I love this game. I've been playing for four months, finally, and I'm taking lessons and have the kind of life where I can either play, get to a driving range, practice putting, practice chipping and pitching, or any combination of these things every day. As a beginner, I bought a decent set of used clubs, including a driver, wedges, woods, and a putter. All good gear, all felt right in my hands, and all was well. But as I've gotten more and more into this golf-thing, I've also started reading more about it on the blogs, looking at equipment reviews, trying out gadgets, etc. My clubs are at the very very least perfectly adequate. I actually think they're top notch, but it's a very personal choice once you get past the data. My skill level is nowhere near squeezing from these clubs their maximum capacity of speed, distance, and accuracy. And that's OK. I'm still learning. I have a Ping G20 driver. I learned to hit from the tee with that club, and I'm usually more accurate than not, but as I said, I'm working on it. Then I read the review (on this site) of the Cobra Fly Z, and I thought I'd give it a try. I found a used one, bought it, and took it for a spin today. I was less accurate rather than more, but I figured that was just the adjustment period. I'll try again tomorrow. But maybe the real problem is this: maybe it is irrelevant what brand with what features I use, as I can't take advantage of the nuanced differences between them. And like most of the golfers I speak with, we fetishize and love our gear, and we seem to always want the next thing that has the potential to make our game better. But again, I can't blame the tools for my lack of performance. Can I credit them when I get good?

  14. You are about to enter another dimension. A dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. There's a signpost up ahead – your next stop? The Crossover Zone. PING Golf is many things, but satisfied with the status quo isn't one of them. PING offers some of the easiest to hit long irons and hybrids on the market, and with every new offering they always have a compelling story to tell. This year's G line, from driver to pitching wedge, is loaded with technology PING believes will make the game a boatload easier and more fun to play. The CrossoverYou first read about PING's new Crossover on MyGolfSpy back in January. PING says it combines the precision, workability and control of an iron with the speed and forgiveness of a hybrid, but you can't quite call it a “hybrid-iron.” Oh, and don't go thinking it's a driving iron because according to PING it's NOT – it says so on their website and they've told us so many times – they say it launches higher, is way more forgiving and way more versatile than a driving iron. Is this a club you need in your bag? Are you one of the unfortunates who can hook virtually any hybrid made off the face of the planet? Do long irons scare you to the point that you want to curl up in the fetal position in the middle of the 8th fairway and cry “Mommy?” Or would you just like something that's easier to hit and more accurate? If you're any one of those listed above, we might be able to help. MyGolfSpy Wants You!We want to put PING's Crossover clubs to the test, and we need your help to do it. We're looking for four intrepid and energetic golfers to test and review PING's new creation and tell us if these things really are as precise, workable, controllable and forgiving as PING claims. Are these the real deal? Is the Crossover a reliable replacement for a long iron? Will it fit seamlessly between your longest iron and hybrid or fairway wood? Are they just as easy to hit as a hybrid, but stay in the same zip code as your target? Real golfers want to know. How To Apply:We need four folks to try out and review these new Crossovers, which PING will build to your specifications and to fit into your existing set. To apply, please tell us the following:: First name Home state Current handicap Current long iron/hybrid, plus shaft and flex This is an exciting opportunity for you to test out and review one of 2016's more unique niche products. Could it be the one that helps your long game? We want you to let us know! For more information: Visit the PING website Like PING on Facebook Follow PING on Twitter Subscribe to PING on Instagram
  15. So have you had the chance to read up on the new PING Fairway woods, hybrids and crossovers? Some personal observations -- I've never found a hybrid I couldn't hook off the planet, and the new G hybrid fits that mold...although they are easy to hit and when I did keep the face open I really liked the ball flight. My favorite club of the trip was the Stretch 3 Fairway wood...that thing was a friggin' mawnsta! There's a VERY good chance one of those might find its way into the bag this year. It was GREAT off the tee and remarkably easy to hit off the deck. I had gamed a Cally 2Deep and while I loved it off the tee, hitting it off the deck was an adventure. This guy was FUN to hit! The other star of the show was the Crossover - as T says, it's NOT a driving iron. PING made sure to tell us that several times -- it's NOT a driving iron. You know what? It's not -- it can be, but its pretty easy to hit off the turf. For guys like me who hook hybrids to Hoboken, it's an intriguing alternatives.

  16. 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/
  17. 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!

  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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!

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.

Thanks Beau
  23. 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.”
  24. 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
