Hi everyone. I a new member to the forum and have been golfing since the mid 1970's. Had my handicap down to a 7.1 at the end of last year and this year it's risen up to a 14.1. Am having some back problems, but not letting it get me down. I went for my first golf fitting in February of this year, which I would recommend for anyone to try one time. It was fantastic, and about 2 hours of hitting balls with various clubs. Hit my clubs, then the Taylormade M2 and the Ping G. He used various shafts etc. Finally the fitter got me set on the Ping G's with a lightweight Stiff shaft, which is what I ordered. Still don't have them dialed in yet, although I have played a lot of golf this year. When I was all done he let me hit his PXG 7 iron, and what a club. Totally effortless hitting of a golf ball. The problem is that they are also very very expensive. Out of my league. Hope to learn a lot in the forums. Thanks.
You are about to enter another dimension. A dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. There's a signpost up ahead â€“ 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 â€œhybrid-iron.â€ Oh, and don't go thinking it's a driving iron because according to PING it's NOT â€“ it says so on their website and they've told us so many times â€“ 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 â€œMommy?â€ 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.

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.

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!
