Ping eye 2 help

4 posts in this topic

As a graduation present I was given a set of ping eye 2's. At the time I just played once in awhile and was not to concerned about how well I played. I have since improved immensely and just shot my first round under 90. I have only been playing for about 1.5 years but have fallen in love with the game. The problem with the ping eye 2's is that the grips are pretty shot and need to be replaced. I am having a hard time to deciding whether to replace the grips or replace the clubs. Seeing as getting the clubs regripped could run from 60-90 dollars and I could buy some newer used clubs for 300 or so I can't decide what to do. I am certainly going to continue playing and once my NCAA sports career ends I will be playing even more. Those of you who have more knowledge than I do about golf equipment could help me out with a few options of used clubs I could look at and any experience you have had with this same problem. Thank you very much.

If you like them, get them regripped. The Ping Eye 2 and the Tommy Armour 845 series are two of the best cavity-back iron models of the pre-2000 era.

In a recent scramble, a thirty-something guy played Eye2s, and he just smoked those irons on the practice range. (Unfortunately, he was on another team). Some current players have bought them and had them reshafted with modern tubes.

I played Eye2 clones (by Pro Tour) from 1994 to 2008. Main reason I switched was I couldn't bend the stiff shafts anymore.

I have new Pings but still have and still play my Eye 2s, love those clubs. Have them re-gripped. And don't ever get rid of them even if you do get another set (which you will), they fun to go out and play after you get the "new" technology.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
