I have always dreamed of owning a Ping driver.  I would love to be properly fitted and be able to use this club to its fullest extent!

I am a golf coach as well as a competitive player.  I would love to have the opportunity to test out clubs either myself of with my high school team.

Calgary, Alberta (I am 100% willing to travel to Montanna to be fit if need be on my own dime! I'm dead serious on that.)

Driver Swing Speed 100mph

Handicap is 33

Your current setup of FW/Hybrid/Utility

Titleist 917 D2 Driver set to 11°, Ping G 5 wood, Ping G 7 wood, Ping G400 4hy, Ping G400 5hy

Left handed

Now I realize I don't live in the US but I am very willing to travel to Montana or Washington on my own dime to be fit and I believe I am the ideal person for this fitting for several reasons:

• I love to write and I love golf. Doing a serious review(s) of this process and results would be really fun for me. It would also allow me the opportunity to dip my toes in the water of golf writing and reviews which I'm really interested in.

• I fractured my back 2 years ago and have returned to golf in January, but I am re-learning now left handed as its easier on my back. (Who better to show what a proper fitting can do??!)

• I bought my current clubs used and was not fit for them and I know I have gap issues that can be improved drastically.

• I am not only willing to write careful and serious reviews but I am also starting a youtube channel to show my progress re-learning the game left handed after my back injury. I would be willing to do at least two videos showing the impact of the fitting and if you like one showing the fitting process itself.

• I use game golf so comparing my stats before and after will be a breeze and since I have Ping equipment now so much the better. I can really show what a fitting can do for our game.
Please don't discount me just because I'm from north of the border! I would really appreciate the opportunity!

My name is Rob and I live in Calgary, Canada.  Swing Speed is 105mph, 12 Handicap,  my current gamers are:  Nike VR Pro Driver 9.5°, Callaway X2Hot Pro 15° Fairway, Taylormade AeroBurner 19° Hybrid.  Right handed.

 I know the contest is open to people only living in the States, but I'm hoping you will at least consider my application. My clubs were stolen about 7 years ago and I have basically pieced together the top end of my golf bag with whatever I could get my hands on cheap.  All of my current clubs  I picked up before my back issues started and I no longer have the club head speed to play them well. I am definitely in need of new clubs that can give me some more ball speed and can help me hit the ball a little higher.  I would be over the moon if I could fill out the top of my bag with custom fit clubs that fit me and my game. 


Driver: Taylormade M2 10.5°; 5w: Taylormade M2 18°; 3H: Callaway GBB19 20°;  Irons: Mizuno MP52 4-PW; Wedges: Vokey SM5 54° and 60°; Putter: Odyssey White Ice #9

- Mizuno MP 18 3 iron, Taylormade RBZ 3 wood 15 degree

The gap between my 3 iron and 3 wood has been plaguing my game for years...  although I've only recently come to grips with that. I've tossed around either a driving iron or a hybrid, but I love the look of bladed irons so I've struggled to find a hybrid or that fits my eye.  The PING 400 19 degree hybrid was the first I thought looked decent, and after hitting it I was a humbled man.

My earlier experiences with hybrids were all high ballooning shots with a guaranteed fade. But with the 400 I felt the same confidence and control I expect with my irons, as far as flight and shape, but with stupid distance.  I'm a huge TXG fan and their vids on hybrids vs driving irons was eye opening. 

Thanks for the consideration! Love what you guys do and always looking forward to your next article.
