Well guys I’ve been following this Test closely and ALL Reviews are well done, great job guys.
I and now pretty certain in a few weeks when I can swing a Driver again the first I try will be the Ping G410.
I’ve already told the fitter to have a LH G410 Driver warmed up and ready!
Great job guys!

There’s two things to remember;
1st; 72 year olds don’t heal real fast.
2nd; I forgot, what was the 1st?

It's been a rainy day here in Georgia so I had plenty of time to check out your reviews.  First of all no doubt you all did your homework and came to class with all sorts of interesting findings with the Ping G410 woods. Each one of you shared your results with an individual and no holds barred style.   Loved it!   I still have my Ping G400 Max in the wings while I''m bagging my main squeeze (Cally XR16). Although two of the big driver reviews I was interested in were enlightening, I'll stay the course. Thanks guys for your dedication to quality and all of us at MGS are extremely proud of your efforts!

Soo umm - that fitting today just verified everything I thought I was seeing on the course with the G410 Plus.  Small Minus hosel setting, weight in the toe.

Those are sick numbers - that work on your swing is really taking shape. Great job!

Question for the testers - I see some mention of changing lofts in your reviews can you guy guys comment on extremes in adjustments?

I may just go back to where I bought the thing, lay out a few bucks and dial it in.

If you have the means and the time, that would be the way to go for sure. The adjustments are pretty basic and intuitive. In a couple of my initial range sessions I basically went through this progression each time; Started with neutral (10.5*) and hit 5-6 shots. Changed to -1* hit 5, then to -1.5* and hit 5. Then back to neutral for a couple of shots and then tried +1* and +1.5* similarly. When I first changed to -1* it felt very good and I hit those shots the best, so I simply dialed into that and it seems to be the one for me. I tried the -1* & +1* with the lie-angle setting with mixed results, so I have simply left it with the standard lie-angle and effectively at 9.5* loft. Of course all this was done out on a driving range with no type of LM at the time-all feel and real-world visual results albeit with range rocks...

FYI, you can really tell just by how much of the face is showing at address how much those little adjustments make to the look of the club when looking down at it as it lies flat on the ground.

Thanks apologist -

My Ping fitter did me a solid by even touching driver and irons. But he didn’t spend lots of time on driver beyond you need this lighter shaft and higher loft.

So this afternoon I went to the range after an unimaginable day (funeral and last rites for 2 people). Warmed up, was hitting it well, moved into driver.

At 12 degrees I was hitting it in the low 230’s according to voice caddy SS 94-96.

That’s solid enough for me with range balls as I’m 5-10 mph faster on the course with my gamer than on the range.

So I jacked it down a degree. Now I play my 400 LST as a 10 up one so this means both were at 11.

But I was hitting the G410 with the new shaft down 1 235-240 plus - I had one carry over 230 and roll out right around a flag that I measure at 265

And our rainy season has started

Sheesh.....you’re killin’ it.
I changed the setting on my G to 11 and has made a 20 yd difference. Had it previously 9.5 and that’s bad for my “moderate” swing speed.

Great update Rev. I'm glad you were able to slip away after what sounds like a terrible day and maybe relax a bit. I'd say you have that thing pretty well dialed in and maybe seeing similar results with distance improvements over the G400 series like I did-nice to have some validation..!

I'm hoping to get to the range myself this week and continue to work on grooving my swing. It fell out of the groove Sunday and I need to try to generate some muscle-memory especially on my transition.

Keep bombing them out there! 230 carry with 265 roll is awesome!

Got out for 9 holes today and had my second go round with the g410. Today went much better than the first round. Took the HZRDUS Yellow from my g400 and swapped tips and plugged it in to the g410. Night and day difference. Still love the feel of the HZRDUS Yellow. Had one of my best driving days ever en route to a 40 on 9 holes Darn 3 putt on the last hole hurt me. 

Still getting used to the sound compared to the G400, but love the results I saw today.

I find the 400 much more subdued. The 410 let’s you know it’s around. It bothered me the first swing - until my fitter told me what my numbers were - I got used to it quickly after that. :)

Sort of haha. Loved my g400 and found the 410 for a good price. Already had it prior to the fitting. Talked with the fitter and he recommenced any of the shafts I already had (tour 75s, HZRDUS Yellow 76 or Evenflow Black 76. Tour 75 won out for my fairway and hybrid but HZRDUS Yellow won out in my driver.

      This is a press release from PING.   
       
      PING signs Jennifer Kupcho,
      former world #1 amateur
       
       
      PHOENIX (May 29, 2019) – Less than two months after her impressive and historic win at the inaugural Augusta National Women’s Amateur, Jennifer Kupcho, the most recent world #1 female amateur, has signed an equipment contract with PING, the company announced today. Kupcho will make her debut as a PING staff pro at this week’s U.S. Women’s Open.
       
      Among her many achievements, Kupcho earned medalist honors in 2018 at the NCAA Division I Golf Championships and was the national collegiate Player of the Year. Last summer, she was a member of the victorious U.S. Curtis Cup, Palmer Cup, and World Amateur teams. A four-time All-American, she set numerous scoring records during her four years at Wake Forest University and this season helped the Demon Deacons reach the NCAA finals for the first time in school history. The 22-year-old is a native of Colorado, where she was a decorated junior player.     
       
      “We’re excited to welcome a player of Jennifer’s incredible talent to PING,” said John K. Solheim, PING President. “We’ve worked with her since her junior golf days and have long admired her ability and passion for the game. Her performance at the Augusta National Women’s Amateur caught the public’s attention and proved her ability to excel under pressure on a global stage. To shoot a final-round 67 and win by four strokes was an amazing accomplishment. She’s a player who fits the PING brand in every way.”
      Kupcho, who earned 2019 LPGA membership through last fall’s Q Series, said joining PING brings her confidence as she prepares to test her game at the highest level.
       
      “I’m really happy to be with PING. They’ve been tremendous supporters of women’s golf throughout their history. I’m looking forward to representing them as a professional,” she said. “PING clubs have been in my bag for my greatest accomplishments in golf, so I have complete confidence in the equipment. It’s custom-built to fit my game and their team of experts brings me comfort knowing they’re committed to helping me bring out the best in my game.”
       
      As part of a multi-year agreement, Kupcho will play a minimum of 11 PING clubs, including a driver and putter. Her headwear will display PING and she’ll carry a PING Tour staff bag. She tees off this week playing a G400 Max driver, G410 3 wood, G400 hybrids, i210 irons, Glide 2.0 wedges, and a Sigma G Darby putter.
       
      Financial terms and the length of the agreement were not disclosed.

      Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4 – Review
      A little background
      Let’s just start with this:  I am not a stellar putter.  I’m not even an average putter.  I’ve been known to be the ‘take a 6 footer for birdie and turn it into a 7 footer for par’ kind of putter.  I’d like to think part of it is due to the wide variation in greens I get to play on (anything from Plinko on the Price is Right to lightning fast U.S. Open greens), but the reality is I just haven’t been that good.  I’m a dad with limited income to spend on golf and little practice time.
      I started this journey to become a Scratch golfer about two years ago.  Since then, I won a free full bag fitting through Club Champion and had a blast doing it.  My favorite part of the whole experience was the SAM PuttLab fitting.  According to the PuttLab, I’m a consistent slight puller of the putter.  My wonderful human of a fitter recommended mallet style with some toe hang.  He laid out a bunch of putters that fit this mold and I immediately started arching the putter rather than pulling it.  I had never really seen that arch path before and I thought I was going to push every putt 3 feet right of the hole.  Needless to say, I made 25 straight 8 foot putts before we re-tested with my favorite putter of the bunch (the Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4, which also happened to be the cheapest, go figure).
      The thing that was instantly attractive about this putter was the fact that it could be adjusted for length.  I’m 5’8”, take an athletic posture with my putter, and have long arms.  Long story short, I need a short putter, but everything you can buy off the rack comes between 33-35” (or so it seems).  We cranked it down to 32.5” and bent the loft to 1 degree.  Oh……….my…………GAWD!!!  I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it!!!
      Eye Candy (aka Looks)
      First off the looks.  This think is a beauty! 

      I love the tynes off the back, makes me think of a fighter jet’s wings.  Who doesn’t love fighter jets?!?  As an added bonus, they are very useful when picking the ball up after you just lagged that 40 footer to inside of 1 foot! 

      Grip
      The stock pistol grip is phenomenal as well.  It really helps me to get my thumbs on top of the grip and parallel to each other. 

      Insert:
      People seem to either love or hate insert putters.  I get it, there is soft and then there is too soft.  Not many people want to feel like they are hitting the golf ball with a marshmallow attached to a shaft.  The dual insert on the Ping Sigma 2 putter line is perfect for me.  Soft enough to feel good at impact, but not soft enough to make you question if you hit it hard enough.

       
      Overall:
      I absolutely enjoy putting practice now!  Get this, you ready for it?  I’ve taken nothing but my putter to the golf course and spent over 1hr putting with my kids!?!  Crazy right? Who does that???  Not a single driver, iron, or wedge hit.  Pure putting. That’s how much I love this putter and how much confidence it gives me.
      I’ve only had two rounds with it, but I’ve had 30 and 31 putts with it so far.  Both of those rounds had at least 3 putts that either lipped out or stopped within 1” of the hole.  Only one 3-putt (and that was on a 60 foot putt, all of my playing partners 3-putted that horrible green lol).  From 5-8 feet, I feel like it is going in all the time.
      Had I the foresight to know that I would be joining MGS, I would have taken stats with my previous putters (yeah, I’m the guy who had like 7 putters all on the bench ready to get in the game whenever the starter started 3-putting) and run an ANOVA on putting metrics to see if this new putter is significantly better or if it is all in my head.  I have since sold those putters and am on the road to a single putter relationship.  You have to give this putter a try if you like the looks of a mallet style fang putter.  It also scored well this year and the previous model as well last year in the MSG putter tests.
      Give this thing a look!!!!  I think I’m going to go roll some putts on my carpet!!!
