Ping?

When I first started playing golf I would throw balls in a box that I hadn’t seen before or had cool/different logos.  I just went through some of that box and found this Ping ball.  I didn’t know they made balls before, anyone know about this or have any?

I can't say for sure but suspect PING quickly recognized the ball market was not likely going to be profitable.  Theirs Titleist and then the rest get to fight over what's left of the pie.  I think they're smart to spend that energy on what they do really well - a leader in golf club innovation and quality.

Oh man.  I remember these.  Forgot all about it until I saw this ball.  I found a bunch of them on the course when I was younger and I always remember thinking they were the balls for the rich, elite golfers!

I remember the two colored ball well. 🙂

Taylor Made Sim2  10.5 (Opened 1 click) Ventus Blue 5  R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

Edison Wedges 54 and 59 KBS Tour Graphite 80's

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

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 have two bi-colored ping balls.  Blue & Yellow, and Orange & Yellow.  Just use them for putting in scrambles.

I have a yellow/white Ping ball with a Kissimmee Country Club logo where I played 30 years ago! I saw a Ping ad which showed these balls and asked if they were making them again, and was told no, it was just for the ad. Srixon is making them but their not the same as PING!

I found a few of those in high school and played them when Dad and I had our early morning rounds in the mid 70s.  It was my way of deflecting his trash talk.  😉

I still have a Ping 2 colored ball, Ping found out early they  didn't belong in the ball market,smart move! I've been in the business for over 30 years, I ran a Golf Day store in East Syracuse in the late 90's. Titleist was number one then,as they are now and will never be dethroned, unless something crazy happens to the company!
