Looking forward to hearing how it went at Quail Hollow. I'm looking for a driver upgrade and all these posts have me excited about checking out the Ping products. Thanks!

Quail is just a friggin' tough course. I had an "OK" front nine, but hole #1 cost me 2 balls right off the bat. Didn't hit driver until #3 where I pounded it way down the hill and my normal fade went straight (wind didn't assist either) so I landed on the hillside with a tough second shot that ruined that hole too. Driver was a monster all day, the problem was I had zero (I mean none) FIR all day with it, so my accuracy with it needs to be addressed ASAP-obviously🤬. Distance without accuracy is a bit sh** so I was disappointed to say the least, especially when I was having a decent ball-striking day with my irons & wedges... Hope to get to the range tomorrow evening after work and maybe play my home course (Boise Ranch) this weekend where I am way more comfortable. I gotta learn to tame the beast...

Great picture! Thanks for the report and feedback. Would be interesting to see an on course comparison between your current driver and the test driver. Hit both on driver holes. Switch between which you hit 1st on each hole. It won't be perfectly scientific, but it might indicate if the accuracy is a swing/aim influence or a club/spin influence.

Looking forward to more feedback on the driver.

So some very good news and some expensive news. Today was the first time the weather improved enough that my wife wanted to play golf. After about 14 holes she says to me "I have never seen you drive the ball so straight - that Ping Driver is really nice"

 

Then about two holes later she reminds me " you know I've been wanting a new driver for quite some time". Huh ho. $$$$$$$$$$$

She was at the full bag fitting with me yesterday. Prior to this experience her fittings were from teaching pros who would hand her a club and say "how does that feel".   After we got through all of the Trackman data and the recommendations by the fitter, she's saying "now you're going to buy those  FW's and Hybrids today right"? Of course I really know what that really means because she's scheduled with the same fitter for mid June! $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

But on the other hand it's kinda of fun when your spouse is into the game as much as you are.

Rick,
I finally got into the fitter yesterday and we tried a number of different shafts. If you recall I originally ordered the SFT with a standard length CB 55 Soft Regular flex. Even though my swing speed was in the lower 80's that Trackman data showed my best carry was with a cut down CB 55 Regular Flex shaft. The fitter ended up ordering that shaft at 45"  and for $72.00 I picked up an additional 20 yds of carry. A no brainer for me. 

Definitely works . I’m sure something similar is going to happen with me, at least hope so. I believe the guys I went to just threw me into senior shafts and forget about it. I’ll check back when I get new setup. My shoulder is starting to loosen up so maybe June!! BTW, 20 yards, WOW!

Have a speedy recovery! 

FYI part (a of many issues I have) is a steep angle of attack. But it was still very interesting. I've got the trackman data and will be publishing it soon in my stage 2.  20 yds is rounded up from 17.3. Even more interesting  - everything he was putting me into from FW to irons - I was getting more distance and a narrower dispersion.

Interesting, I also have a steep angle. Looking forward to your Stage 2 and also the remainder of your fitting. I think we may have quite similar swing & swing speeds.

You are lucky, my other half refuses to believe that golf is a sport 😵. Although she does let me play whenever I want 😁. The only problem is that she wants to "share" her sport, ju jitsu, with me and that means an a** kicking for my troubles 😭😁😎

Well heck.  I finally finished up some pressing business here in MT, following our return from Yuma, and had plans to see how Driver X performs at altitude (we're a mile high +).  On my way back from Dillon Thursday, I started to get that fatigued, sinking feeling and by Friday morning had a full blown cold.  Been a lounge lizard for the past 3 days (thank God for The Golf Channel).  I'm hoping later this week I can get 9 or 18 in at Madison Meadows.  After playing 3x/week for 5 months, I haven't swung a club for over a month.  Maybe we should move to AZ full time and "sunbird" to MT? 😀   I'm trying spy's, I'm trying.

Wow. How time flies.  Just noticed we're a month into the testings.  Keep the day to day and at minimum weekly thoughts coming.  

Keep in mind Stage two's will be due in two to three weeks.

It's just fun to hit when you have this much confidence in a club. Irons into par 5s that I'm normally hitting hybrid into is crazy

That timeframe is going to work for me. My new shaft should be in next week. In the meantime I'm playing the original and it's pretty nice!
