Thinking of new driver and funny story

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

So I currently game a Ping G30 SFT. I got the itch for a new driver so I found a used TS2 and wanted to hit it. Was at a local big box store, the guy tries to up sell me to a new TS2. Has me hit it, tells me my grip is wrong and how to fix it, hit 3 shots with the new grip and it was a little better and he looks at me and goes, I'll go grab a headcover... I looked perplexed and asked why, he goes well you're getting it right?  When I said no I want to try others as well and hit a few more he got very short with me and didnt want to help me.

So the hunt continues!

It's not easy to replace those G30s... I tried all last year to kick mine out of the bag and I started driving the ball better than I ever have. 👍

Good luck with the search, I know I'm keeping mine on the hot seat so it doesn't think it can take a round off. haha

The other thing I "love" about going to these stores is that so many feel like they are Butch Harmon.  Don't get me wrong, there are many times that I enjoy trying out a club and having a conversation with these sales guys, but some just think they are golf and swing geniuses. 

Good luck with your search.  Unsure if you live in a populated area, but I've had lots of success in the spring when I can find an outdoor demo day at a local course with many manufacturers present.  I much prefer hitting outdoors and seeing the ball flight than just into a net with numbers.   Granted I do like to know my numbers, on course results are what matter.  I've had some history of getting great numbers on a new driver and purchasing only to get on course and it didn't translate.  My advice, be sure to keep that G30 handy should you encounter something similar.

Heck I haven't taken my G15 out of my bag.  I just can't rationalize spending the $$ because it just works (and when it doesn't...it's my fault for sure).

Finding a local golf store w/ a good fitter is hard to find and important to keep!  They won't fit you into something you don't need to make a sale.
