TESTERS ANNOUNCED (4) PING Long Game Fitting/Gapping Review

Recommended Posts



I’m a 20hc.

Swing speed between 105-115

Right Handed

Taylor Made R1 driver, some off brand 3metal and a cobra hybrid. Calloway x20 iron set

Would love to try some new tech to see if it decreases my score.  I typically drive about 240 or so and I’m inconsistent sometimes go left.

Sit Down This is A Big One!! 

What's your most effective club after your last iron and before your driver, 4-hybrid, 5 wood,  utility iron?  And how does that club fit with the rest of your clubs in that gap?  Were you fit for it?  Well according to the people I met with at PING at the PGA Show, most golfers don't pay as much attention to this area as they pay to the driver, irons and putter. Sure it may not be as thrilling as a driver fitting, and being covered up with head covers they may not bring the attention to your bag that shiny new irons do.  But properly fit and gapped, they absolutely will save strokes in your long game.

So we are looking for four testers to join myself in putting the latest line of PING G410 fairway-woods/hybrids/crossovers to test to see how they help improve your long game.  Which clubs will you be testing?  Well that's where part of the real fun comes in. Once selected, the testers will be set up with a FREE fitting by the local rep or an authorized top fitter in the area, for the gap between driver and irons.  When the fitter has determined the setup those specs will be sent to PING and you will receive the clubs to test/review and keep. 

It's imperative that anyone that applies for this testing, understands and agrees that they will receive exactly what the fitter recommends, and not what you think you'd prefer or think you'd be more comfortable with. If you're not willing to put your trust in the hands of professional fitters, than this testing isn't for you. So put all egos aside and go into the fitting open minded. I know I did exactly that and was quite surprised and even more pleased at the results. I'll share my experiences and setup once the testing has begun.

Also just want everyone to know, while the recent partnership announcement between PING and Arccos is very exciting, they will not be an option for this this testing.  

How to apply.

This is important, so please follow these instructions carefully:

1. If you haven't already, make sure you're a registered MyGolfSpy Forum member
2. In this thread (and ONLY in this thread - please don't go back to the blog and apply - it won't do you any good!), tell us the following:

- Your first name
- City/State  
- Your swing speed and handicap
- Your current setup of FW/Hybrid/Utility,....for example:   17* Utility iron, 5 wood, 4 hybrid

Right Hand or Left Hand

This review opportunity is open to any golfer who resides in the US (due to fitting logistics).  We'll be announcing the testers in this thread next week, so make sure to check back.

This is an interesting opportunity.  I have found it difficult to fill the top end of my bag.  Wedges are a dime a dozen, and yes these are necessary for scoring.  But I have been keeping detailed analytics of my own game for several years.  It is the the long game that keeps our scores up - out of bounds, tops, duffs, behind a tree, water and sand off the fairway, lame approaches on long par fours.  These problems lead to penalty shots and drops from hazards that really add up for us non-pros.  

My bag has some holes at the top end  due to my club speed (98ish).  Longest iron is a six - two hybrids, a 3W and a driver.  Recent retirement has left me with plenty of time to document, test and analyze these clubs in this test.  I have played Ping clubs most of my life, and would like the chance to play them again.

Current setup (long game)

Epic driver - TM M2 3w - Ping G20 hybrid - Callaway apex hybrid

Irons - Apex   Wedges Ping    Putter - Ping

Handicap 5.2

club speed (98ish)


Thank you for the opportunity
