  1. 1. Are you a believer in Stroke Lab tech?



Recommended Posts

As requested by @goaliewales14 here is a 9 total putt, 3 with each putter tee video. 

After about 30 minutes of practice doing this drill it was a very close tie between my gamer (Ping) and stroke lab. Really can't say one was better then the other, but they both did best the Nike. I did feel very confident with both ping and Odyssey even though they are balanced very differently as I've mentioned previously.

Very consistent strokes all around!  I was even watching the back swing and between the Ping and the Stroke Lab, I couldn't see any difference at all.  I thought this might highlight the difference since the Stroke Lab is all about "improving golfers strokes." Thank you for doing the drill!

I'm in the process of posting 4 more videos on the channel. 9 putts with stroke lab, ping, Nike and another Nike I had which is not face balanced. Different camera view as well which may give a bit more insight as I did at times feel the stroke lab sway, but it seemed to get results.

My stage 1 is up - I've been traveling the past couple weeks so it's been a little tough to get the time.  I'm playing my first 18 hole round Saturday as well - so I'll have a lot of updates to share!

One thing I'll be interested in is the adjustment period - will it be quick, will it be a struggle, will gains be evident immediately, will you feel like you need to change your setup/stance/grip etc.? Putters seem to be the most personal of any stick in the bag, so how the new tech vs "old faithful" works for you will be some good reading. 

Great point!  This is one of the reasons that I feel like a putter is so tough to change out.  Even more so than irons in my opinion.  My putter has the longest tenure of anything else in my bag at 7-8 years.  So far it's been a fairly smooth change except I do notice that the face seems softer with the Odyssey, but alignment, grip, stance, etc... have all been ok.  Weighting is a bit different - still need to play more to have a better description - stay tuned.

Great round of Stage One's by me and the boys in case you haven't seen them. As a tease, hopefully sometime this afternoon my post about my fitting will be going live in this very thread and hopefully we'll all have some discussion about rounds we played this weekend coming to you as well!

Alright, boo me if you want fellow spies. Due to work the fitting post is delayed until Monday. However, as a bonus, it will come complete with thoughts and stats from the first three rounds of play with Ye Olde Stroke Lab.

I just got back from spending a couple hours at the practice green, mainly focusing on putts of 10 feet and shorter. 

Some trends are starting to develop, but I don't want to spoil it until I get more time on the green. 

I will say early results suggest the Stroke Lab has a fight on its hands. This may change as I get further away, we'll see. 

I'm sure a little bit is due to my comfort level with my Ping.

June 14th Update

This Sunday I'm off to China to make some curling ice and sadly the stroke lab will not be making the trip. So although I have some material to keep everyone entertained during the lull of play I do have a bit of info after my first 3 rounds. So far I'm impressed. I have had all of 2 three putts so far and last rounds was completely my own stupidity and not the stroke labs. As for round breakdowns those I will save for future, but here is a good showcase of them so far. Feel free to compare to the stage one graph shows the same numbers but from the previous 60 some of rounds.

I was playing last night in 30 mph winds to start off with and it got me thinking, is there any differences in heavy wind?  I could tell my "normal putter" stroke was affected by wind.  Is it better/worst/same for the Stroke Lab?

Haven't played in really windy conditions, but I can say I don't feel it would be effected any more or less then my standard putter.

Ok, so you’ve been good little spies so let me bring you the long awaited fitting post. First, a big shout out to the newly opened Club Champion in Victor, NY and their guy Adam for the fit on such short notice. Also, even though I didn’t get fit there, a big shout out to Big Oak outside of Rochester as well. If they had the new Odyssey fitting board they would have likely been my first choice, but Jim was very understanding.

Now, let’s start by talking about how I ended up with the Nickent Pipe in my bag in the first place. The year was 2006 and the scene of the crime was the Central New York Golf Center near Bridge St. in Dewitt, NY. I went in that with the plan to pick up some kind of alignment based mallet and came down to three. The two finalists ended up being the Nickent Pipe and The Rife 2 Bar Mallet. I then took the balls on the putting green out to 20 feet, closed my eyes and hit some putts with my mom watching . I made 2 with the Pipe and none with the Rife. Decision made, that’s how I got the pipe and the rest, as they say, was history.

Fast forward to 2019 and driving out on a foggy morning to Victor, NY to get fit for a Stroke Lab Putter. Going out there I was pretty certain I was going to be in a mallet shape and my reason for that has to do with something I know about my eye position in putting. You see, when I’m putting with my Pipe, my eyes aren’t centered over the ball they’re actually drawn down the putter. I’ll drop a picture of the Pipe in here with a spot to show where my eye line normally lines itself up.

Y5JyXQ6l.jpg

Thanks to @Shankster for the Orange Duo Professionals to test

So yeah, my eyes settle away from the ball on my mallet. The reason for this is that I can see the pipe portion of the putter move away over this spot and make sure that it’s on a solid path back. I know it’s a bit weird, but it’s what helps me be certain I’m on the right path. So, looking at where my eyes are and knowing what we know about the line, you can understand why I was expecting to end up with an R Ball, Seven, or maybe even a Tuttle.

I arrive early in the morning and we get SAM Lab set up. It’s a really cool experience for me because I’ve never been on one and if you haven’t here’s how it goes. They take your putter and get some static measurements, using a digital loft and lie machine and a standard ruler for length. Then they attach the apparatus to read the machine on the front of your putter and you hit like 5-8 10 foot putts for a baseline. While I didn’t receive the report, and I should have asked for it for you guys, here’s what I learned

1)      My line up is pretty square with my Pipe, .4 degrees open.

2)      Path: I bring it outside and then bring it inside going forward. The issue with this is when I make I don’t bring it back inside, leading to a wipey push, my normal miss.

3)      Before and after impact: my stroke is always closing, closing .2 degrees before impact and closing .2 degrees after impact, allowing me to get almost perfectly square.

4)      Consistency: both numbers for this score were in the high 80s, so pretty damn good.

So, we put the numbers in and the suggestion of head style comes up, 30-45 degrees of toe hang. I find it a touch weird since I’m been face balanced for so long but I figure, well maybe I’m the person the Slant Neck Mallet was made for. So Adam stars out by giving me a 7S and I hit some putts with it. It feels ok at best, but I still feel like I’m steering a bit on the stroke. Also, and this is gonna sound weird, it feels head light. Obviously you all know I love my lead tape and considering the Stroke Lab is slightly counterbalanced, the head just felt light in the mallet. I think I went 2-5 before Adam decided the seven wasn’t going my way.

Then, he goes and grabs the One and something just feels different. The balance in this is a bit head heavy which is nicer for me as it smooths some things out. I proceed to make the next 6 putts in a row. Adam tells me, I think we have a winner but in my mind I almost don’t want to believe it, so I ask to try one more putter, the Double Wide Slant Neck. Here, I figure is the best of both world, a decent toe hang, blade, but with mallet principles. Admittedly, it’s ok, but just ok, going 5-8 from ten feet. I get the One back in my hand, going 6-8 with the two misses being lip outs and it’s decided, One it is.

Also, weirdly enough the SAM it recommends that I go with a standard sized grip. Deciding not to fight and also feeling as if that’s a bit weird to not consider the Stroke Lab with the grip it was intended to be used it, I do accept this finding and get it with the Standard Pistol Stroke Lab grip.

So, I thank Adam, get the printout of the specs, message them over to MPR and the rest is Testing history. I then spent an interesting late morning early afternoon with my girlfriend (who came out to keep my company) at the Eastman House and grabbed some food in like a city market type place with awesome burgers and woodfire pizzas.

Now, coming later today after I get back from lunch and court, I’ll bring you results from the first 3 rounds of play and they are… interesting to say the least.

While watching the US open, I found myself in the basement and doing alot of practice on my carpet with my PuttOut trainer.  I'd love the feedback from some of the other testers, but when comparing against my Scotty - the best thing I could come up with is that it feels like a forged iron (Scotty) then hitting a game improvement club (Odyssey).  

It's not a bad sensation, i just do not get nearly as much feedback from the Odyssey as I do with my Scotty Cameron.  I get that buttery soft feel with the SC that doesn't come through with the Odyssey. Maybe it's as simple as the Odyssey has an insert and the SC does not, but I wanted to point it out for anyone who may be coming from a 100% milled putter.

Keep in mind that my first 9 holes with the Odyssey resulted in just 12 putts, so it may not matter - just something to mention.

I have played soft-faced putters since 2000-ish, and the weights and balance points between the Odyssey and Ping are pretty similar, so I haven't noticed too much difference in the feel between the two.

I am curious about total weight, though. I need to remember to put them on a scale.

Admittedly, as someone who doesn't really care that much about feel, my opinion really should hold no weight in this, especially since every putter I've played with has an insert. What I will say is that it feels a bit more fluffy on good center contact, maybe because of those hinges? All I really care about is does it get the ball in the hole or on the line I wanted to start it on with increasingly regularity. A you'll see with my next post, that answer is... usually.

Alright I've played three rounds with the Stroke Lab One at this time, all with my current skins game in the morning. Here's how it's performed

Round 1: Ball striking is a disaster on the front side. I play it in Bogey golf (44). There are 16 total puts, 7 2 putts and 2 1 putts. Best putt was a lengthy bogey save on the #1 handicap par 5 from 8 feet. Rolled it really nice. Back side, Stroke Lab and my ball striking come alive. 13 total putts, 4 2 putts, 5 one putts including one putting four of the first five greens. Stand on 15 -2 on the side, come home +3 from there due to fatigue and missing greens. Lip out a third birdie on the back on 18 to post 44-38 for a round of 82.

Round 2: Again, swing is a bit out of sorts early, but the putter is not there to save me. Took a total of 32 putts, 17/15 split with no three putts on my way to a 84. Weird part of the round, hit 6 putts that either stop on the lip or lip out entirely, including a putt that broken 15 feet on 4 and a similar putt on 13. I understand these are growing pains, but it doesn't feel great knowing I left so many out there. Lag putting continues to be solid with most finishing within easy tap in range, hence the majority of two putts because I'm not hitting wedges and short irons on target

Round 3: The round teased on Saturday, where I learned I suck at golf in a big way. Failure to break 90 for the first time in a single round in nearly 3 years, shooting the number on the nose. 39 putts.

39 PUTTS

4 three putts, 13 two putts, 1 one putt. Speed leaves me, hitting everything too hard, alignment is awful, I start making these stupid wipey strokes opening the face and pushing everything. Stroke is all out of sorts and I can't figure it out. The only 1 putt comes after flopping a wedge to a foot and it's conceded. Wasted money playing that round of golf and just frustrated at myself for playing so poorly. Really made me want to switch back to the Pipe, but I promised myself one month Stroke Lab only to get a good feel.

I'm hoping to find some time to practice this week as I clearly need it. What do I think the problems are?

1) Not trusting my lines yet: Because the aiming component is a bit more understated, I try to save what I consider to be bad alignment with a weird stroke path

2) Inconsistent stroke path: I've been a nearly SBST putter forever, moving to something with rotation is a change and it's taking time to get comfortable, especially under pressure

3) Eye position: I'm dropping my eyes back in a similar say to where there were with the Pipe, this is proving awful with the Stroke Lab as the weighting and toe hang are totally different

I'll keep you all posted, maybe going out again on Saturday morning, might be heading to Rochester for the International Jazz Fest that afternoon so may save some cash.

I've played all sorts of putters both with and without inserts and I had to admit I like the stroke lab feel. It's not that buttery soft blade like feel, but it has for a very responsive feel and I know where I've hit and what I've done when I make contact. Large part of that is I tried in practice hitting all over the have and figuring out what the feel is all over. It isn't the same feel as a milled putter, but it's also not meant to be. It does feel way better then the older micro hinge as well. That being said I hated my ping Tyne with it's harder loud sound, but came to love it after time. I'm really more interested in how the shaft makes a difference in my game.

Update after league play last night:

I had an OK round from a putting perspective. I averaged 2 putts per hole, which was a bit disappointing after the way I have been putting this year, but my chipping was crap. I wasn't catching the ball clean consistently so the bite/lack of bite was not predictable, leaving me too many 10-20 footers for up-and-down.

The jury is still out on short to medium range putts for the Stroke Lab - I assume some of this is just getting used to the slight difference in specs, but I need more time on the practice green. So far, I am very happy with the lag putting with this putter - I had 2 putts in the 50 foot range last night that ended up in easy kick-in range. Is this a face effect, shaft effect, or both?

      Perfect Practice Putting Mat Review
      By Chasing Scratch
       
      If you’re like me, you need to practice your putting……. A lot…… I mean take the time you want to practice each month, multiply it by 10, then add 10 hours to that.  Let’s face it, of all the skills in the game of golf, putting is something many of us amateurs tend to practice the least.  When was the last time you heard people at the course talking ‘bout “Man I spent 5 hours last week on my putting, and I just can’t get enough!”  The putter is hit more times in a single round than any other club yet we have this avoidance affair with it.  We’ll smash driver for hours on the range, look at the watch, and give 5 minutes to putting.

      I’m guilty of this myself.  As someone who knows I need to practice my putting more, it’s just not that much fun.  It’s also not very convenient for me.  The closest course to my home is 25 minutes away.  50 minutes in the car is a large commitment for me just to practice putting several days per week.

      So given my goal of scratch golf, my knowledge of statistics, and my passion for improvement, I started looking into “at home” putting training aids.  I searched around on the internet for everything from putting mats, auto-return systems, and DIY putting platform building guides. 

      I liked a few of the products just fine and was narrowing down my options to a few of the mats.  I know several had great reviews and even skill-type-games you can play, but I just couldn’t get over not having the ball fall into a cup.  There is something satisfying about seeing the golf ball fall into a hole and disappear.  So I started to plan out a putting platform build.  I had the specs and was all set to go to the store and spend a few days knocking it out.

      Literally the night before I was going to go to the store, I stumbled upon a page on Instagram called “Perfect Practice Golf” and saw their putting mat.  They had a giveaway contest going on for the PGA Championship so I threw my name in for the drawing.  I decided to wait and see if I got lucky before I built my platform and (wouldn’t you know it!)  I won!  So I decided to hold off on building a platform to see if this thing was any good.

      Their Instagram page showed quite a few PGA Tour players (e.g., Tony Finau, Marc Leishman, Smiley Kaufman, see their quotes below) who were using their putting mat so I figured it would be good enough for me.


      Quality and features

      When it arrived, the first thing I noticed was that the actual putting carpet was top notch.  I’m sure you’ve all seen the putting mats you can buy at the big box stores and the carpet they come with looks like something that is made out of cardboard.  You have to lay encyclopedias on it and even then you may have some creases, it never lays flat, etc.  Straight out of the box, this thing unrolled and lay flat.  You could literally start putting on it right out the box!

      The actual material feels a lot like velour (that's the best way I can describe it although it is not a perfect description).  They call it “crystal velvet,” but all I know is it is a very pure rolling surface.  A plus is that you can vacuum it as well.

      On that mat, you’ll find printed markings for every foot and smaller marks for every inch (it looks like a giant ruler).  You also have two alignment lines (one for the regular sized hole and one for the mini-hole).  As a golfer who struggles with “seeing the line” over my putts, the alignment line really helps.


      The mat also features an incline up to the holes, to ensure a confident stroke and to assist with the gravity-fed ball return system.  On their first version, the base and return ramp were made out of plastic.  It had a good weight to it and I had no complaints.  On their newest model, they made some upgrades to the base material.  Namely, it is now made of wood instead of plastic, there is an insert-able backstop to catch putts hit with too much gusto, extra space behind the holes to catch balls, and the return ramp has magnets to connect the pieces.  Each of these upgrade adds much more “high quality” feel to the overall product.  They did not change the crystal velvet putting surface, and in my opinion they didn’t need to.  It’s great as is.


      With the original version, my kids had a tendency to hit the ball past the holes and off the mat.  They were more than happy to chase the balls down the hallway, but it was a bit of an oversight in the original design.  This has been fixed in the newest version.  It would take a freaking missile launch of a putt to blast it off the mat now.

      For the price, I’d be hard pressed to find a better putting training aid.  At just over $100, you get a high quality putting surface and the mental boost of seeing a ball fall into a hole over and over and over again.  You can roll it up, stick it under your bed, and putt every single day, rain or shine, all from the comfort of your home. 

      This thing rolls fast and true.  They claim it rolls up to a 14 on the stimp if you put it on hard floors (think wood floors or concrete), and you can slow it down by putting it on carpet.  When I put it on my bedroom carpet, it is noticeably slower than when it is on the tile floor.

      If I were to have a critique, it would be that I wish the mat were just about a 1/4 inch thicker.  I have tile floor in my home and carpet in the bed rooms.  When putting on the tile floor, you can get a bump here or there (due to the gaps in the tiles and grout).  I fixed this by using some runner rugs we have in the hallway and I typically just put them under the mat.  I can’t be too critical, because I know that adding more thickness would increase the price, add to shipping, etc.  Overall it is a solid putting mat well worth the price.  I have hit hundreds of putts on the original model and the newest model and have yet to notice any depressions or grooves in the surface.  I know this is a concern for any putting mat, but so far so good on this one.

      Performance on the course

      For the first few weeks that I had the original Perfect Practice Golf putting mat, I couldn’t get enough of it.  My kids and I would spend hours throughout the day hitting 4 footers, 6 footers, 8 footers, etc.  We even came up with a trick shot and had a blast doing it (see video below)! 
       
      [/url]  
      My son and I came up with other putting games to play on it to keep it fun.  My on the course putting showed definite improvement as well!  I rarely had less than 35 putts per round before and quite often a few three putts.  When I was putting consistently with the Perfect Practice mat, I didn’t have a round over 32 putts.  Those pesky 6-7 foot par save putts were falling with much more consistency.  I felt like I had a real chance to hole everything inside of 10 feet.  Seeing the ball fall into a hole over and over and over while practicing at home is such a mental boost for my game.
      I haven’t played golf in over a month, much less practiced on my mat (life just got very very crazy in the Chasing Scratch home).  I want to make myself a personal goal of hitting 50 putts per day to see how good I can get.  Since I have a solid mat in the comfort of my own home, there really is no excuse.  If I want to get to scratch golf, I need to get those putts per round down to 30 or under consistently.  The only way to get better is to practice.  I’ve got a great practice aid to do it, now I just need the determination and dedication.
      At $130, I don’t think you can go wrong with this training aid.  The upgrades are a nice improvement over the original version, and the putting surface is top notch.  Take a look at their webpage (click here) and consider the Perfect Practice Golf mat if you are in the market for a putting setup for the home, office, or wherever really.  They sell out quickly when they get their shipments in, so they are on pre-order right now.
      I hope you enjoyed this review!  Now I’m off to go work on my putting!

      I'm getting rid of my seemore pure center blade putter I've owned for 2 years (purchased summer 2017). I am asking $120 OBO including shipping. If I don't have a lot of interest it will go on eBay. 
      Putter is in near mint condition. See actual photos of the putter below. Has additional weighting in the head as well as counterbalancing in the grip, length is 34.5".
      Paypal is my preferred payment method.
      Directly below is a list of the complete specs on the putter when I ordered it. Thanks for looking!

      Hello all! Thought I would chime in on this putter since I've owned it for a few months now.
       
       
      I had been using a Ping Ketch mallet putter since the beginning of the year. (I am relearning the game left handed this year due to a back issue and decided to do so with the putter as well) I had been putting fairly well with it but found it a bit hard to line up and I didn't love it, like all putters I have owned. I saw the testing and reviews on this putter and decided to buy it online sight unseen.
       
      I tend to like a longer putter and got it in the 35” model.
       
      (Aside: A member of the forum let me know that it could be bought here in Canada on golfworks.ca as we don't have Dick's here, so thank you whoever you were. It was $130 Canadian. It arrived super well packed, maybe better than any other golf club I've ever gotten in the mail. There were two small scratches on the putter shaft. I decided to email golfworks and see what they had to say about it. The service was incredible and the best I've ever had online. They got back to me within an hour with an apology and said they would ship out a new one that day and they had a shipping label for me to return mine with. For me the scratch's weren't a big deal and I offered them to refund me $15-20 and I'd keep it. They did me even better and gave me their cost on it and refunded the difference! Unreal service. I will buy all my grips etc. from them going forward.)
       
      Ok, back to the review!
       
      The putter fit my eye immediately. I have only ever had one other golf club where I just knew I was going to hit it well and that I'd love it at first sight. It was a Cobra knockoff driver I won in the 90's in a closest to the pin contest. This putter was the same way. I just knew I was going to love it and play well with it. I have played ten rounds so far and only six three putts. My first round with it I swooped and won three skins with a twenty foot putt and did it again later in the round with a thirty five foot putt for three more skins (The guys weren't mocking me anymore for having a Tommy Armour putter after that haha)! I do not normally sink many long putts. My longest previous this year wouldn't have been any longer than fifteen feet.
       
      It is really well balanced, the pistol grip is actually very comfortable (I may replace it with something different down the road, we'll see) and I think it looks good. The head cover I can't say the same for, it's pretty ugly and doesn't fit on that well. That's a fairly minor issue, especially considering the price and performance of this putter. 
      On long putts I can easily line it up and it's no different on the short ones. The feel is just right for me, not too firm and not too soft, so they got the insert just right.  I just have so much confidence with this thing that I can't say enough about it. I would have paid five times as much if I knew it was going to make this kind of difference in my game. My putting stats show that I've dropped almost four strokes off my rounds. I was averaging thirty six PPR and now it's down to thirty two I took no lessons and used no training aids. It was all the putter. If someone would have told me a putter would shave three to four strokes off my game I would have laughed at you! 
       
      Bottom line is I love this putter. What a value the guys at Dicks have come up with....they made a world class putter for the $100 range. Thank you MY GOLF SPY, without this site I would never have given this a chance. You saved me spending $400+ on an Evenroll, so thank you guys for that.
       
      Looks – 7/10
      Feel – 9/10
      Alignment – 10/10
      Value – 11/10
       
      Overall – 9/10 – I highly, highly recommend this putter.

      PRESS RELEASE
      PING introduces next generation
      of custom-fit women’s equipment
       
      PHOENIX (July 1, 2019): Advancements in technology, lighter overall club weight, expanded fitting options and premium materials combine to make the new G Le2 family PING’s highest performing women’s clubs to date, the company announced today. The complete line of clubs is available for pre-order at authorized PING golf shops around the world beginning today.
       
      “The G Le2 represents our continued commitment to providing women golfers of every skill level with premium, high-performance equipment optimized to their swing speeds,” said Stacey Pauwels, PING Executive Vice President and the granddaughter of PING founders Karsten and Louise Solheim, whose role includes overseeing the brand’s women’s initiatives.”
       
      “To achieve one of our performance goals of improving the feel of the club throughout the entire swing, we focused on making the clubs lighter overall,” Pauwels added.  “We integrated our extensive knowledge of materials and manufacturing processes with our proven design technologies to deliver measurable improvements throughout the set. At the same time, we wanted to present the new clubs in a visually appealing and confidence-inspiring way. We’re extremely excited about the results and look forward to bringing the G Le2 family to women golfers around the world.”
       
      Custom fit and custom built
      Along with ensuring measurable performance improvements throughout the G Le2 family, PING’s engineering team placed added importance on expanding the fitting options to help women find the ideal set to match their games.
       
      “Having equipment that is custom fitted to their games allows women to see improvement from every club in their bag,” said Pauwels. “The G Le2 family really emphasizes that need through loft, lie and length adjustability along with the shaft weight, flex and grip offerings. Once we know those specifications, finding the best combination of fairway woods, hybrids, irons and wedges during a fitting is the next step in the process.”
       
      “Because we custom build every club, we want women to know we’ll make them a set that best fits their game,” she said. “The key is determining the ideal set makeup that provides proper distance gaps between each club. That may be a full set or maybe a smaller set of a few metal woods, hybrids, irons, a wedge and a putter. Once we have all their fitting information, we can custom build the clubs to their precise specifications for maximum performance.”
      Lighter, faster, more forgiving driver
       
      The next generation of golf’s highest-performing women’s driver maximizes forgiveness and distance through a higher MOI, faster face and lighter overall weight. Its titanium head features a rounder, more aerodynamic shape to promote faster clubhead speeds. A thin, forged T9S+ face is optimized for the intended swing speed to increase flexing for more ball velocity and improved launch conditions. Internal heel-biased weighting helps ensure straighter ball flights and softer turbulators help frame the ball at address. Trajectory Tuning 2.0 in the G Le2 driver utilizes a new lightweight, aerodynamic hosel sleeve that provides eight positions for influencing ball flight through loft (±1.5°) adjustments.
       
      Faster faces, higher-launching, adjustable fairway woods
       
      A thinner, faster maraging steel C300 face, a significantly higher MOI and an 8-lobe adjustable hosel distinguish the G Le2 fairway wood from its predecessor. The added ball speed from the face technology increases distance and combines with the shallower face to launch the ball higher with greater forgiveness. An overall lighter club weight makes swinging the club easier with more clubhead speed for longer and straighter results. Internal weighting promotes right-to-left shot correction to keep shots on target. Available in 3, 5, 7 and 9 woods.
       
      Lighter, longer and straighter irons
       
      Precise and forgiving with a lighter overall club weight, G Le2 irons utilize COR-Eye Technology with a deep top-rail undercut to increase face flexing for more ball speed and higher max height. A tungsten toe weight helps increase MOI by 10% for greater forgiveness and a co-molded cavity badge ensures a pleasing feel and sound. Available in 6-9 iron, PW, UW, SW.
       
      Faster face, higher-launching hybrids with more fitting choices
       
      A thinner, hotter Carpenter 455 face and lighter club weight generate faster ball speeds while a lower, deeper CG helps increase the MOI to launch the ball high with greater forgiveness. The addition of a 34⁰ 7 hybrid expands the fitting options for women who prefer the technology of a hybrid in place of an iron. Softer crown turbulators help capture the ball at address and aid in alignment. Available in 4, 5, 6 and 7 hybrids.
       
      Adjustable putters with feel and forgiveness
       
      Enhanced feel and forgiveness and a new adjustable-length shaft improve performance and fitting opportunities in the three new G Le2 putters (Anser, Shea and Echo). A dual-durometer face insert -- engineered with TR face technology -- provides a soft front layer for precision and improved impact feel and a firmer second layer for control to improve consistency on putts of every distance. The easy-to-use adjustable shaft allows self-fitting for length between 31" and 35". A new, softer PP59 midsize grip improves feel and comfort.
       
      Lighter shafts, softer grips
      PING’s proprietary ULT240 Lite and Ultra Lite premium graphite shafts are standard throughout the G Le2 family and help bring down overall club weight while helping generate more clubhead speed and higher launch. The super-soft Golf Pride Tour Velvet Garnet 360 grip is available in three sizes (Blue -1/16", Red -1/32", Aqua -1/64").
