Congratulations.  cant wait to see the results.   I am looking into replacing my 3 wood.


My pro in Wisconsin did not believe in 3 woods. He almost always recommended a 4 wood for his members. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if a number of us end up with 4 wood or a strong 5 wood rather than 3 wood.

Also I was stunned last year at my Titleist ball fitting when the fitter told me that I’d benefit from an SGI in 6 and 7 iron - he was right - it’s just my swing - if you’re going to swing your swing you will need to have equipment to fit it - I’ve never been fit for 160-200 before - I have been fit for irons, driver, fairway wood but never in that void - I’ve always settled for get it around the green and try and get up and down for par.

Can’t wait to see where this leads us to

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

I'm very interested to see how this goes especially since I had a 'full bag fitting' last year. Thinking back on how it went, it was primarily based around 6 iron and driver so in a sense it wasn't 'full bag' at all. With the focus being on the variety of clubs in the long iron to FW range I imagine we'll see some cool combinations amongst the four of us!

I spent some time this morning looking over the G410 FWs, hybrids and crossovers. The possibilities are....endless! I was also comparing the specs to my current gapping thinking about what the fitter might recommend. I've already made some space for the potential changes on my equipment spreadsheet (yes....I'm that golf nerd 🤓) as a means of comparing and contrasting once the testing kicks off. The excitement has only increased since being selected for this excellent opportunity and I can't wait to get started!

That's awesome, more detailed than I had. I don't know if you use shot tracking but may be worth adding yardages to this to help with your gaping. I have found that with the newer clubs and jacked lofts gaping is very difficult.

Well it's time to fill the the Gap in this thread with some Testers.  

image.jpeg

 

Join the four testers who join me in filling the gap between the last iron we hit effectively and driver.   As mentioned in the original post these testers will be fit by a local PING Rep or a Top PING fitter in their area, to insure they get the best possible fitting.    So let's get on men!

@revkev

@TSauer

@PAgolfer2017

@mr.hicksta

You all will be getting a PM from me later today with some information that I will need right away and wilth more instructions....But in the meantime, I'll just leave you with this

Congratulations!!  Great set of testers!

Oh hey y'all 😄

I've been perusing the shaft offerings on Ping today, daydreaming about possible configurations. And the more I read up on the G410 line, the more excited I get about going through this process. I've gamed a lot of the shafts Ping offers, and some of them are similar to what I'm using now. I'm most intrigued by the Crossover and I'll be curious to see if the fitter thinks it's a fit for my game!
