Flipping through the photo gallery on SI.com for today's practice round at the Open, I found some interesting photos of PING staff players. For one, looks like Lee Westwood is using a G10 driver:
Moreover, looks like Louie Oosthuizen has a PING Rapture driver in his bag:
Now that the G20 series is out, LW and LO are both using drivers from more than two series ago. I find it interesting that they would still be gaming drivers that are so old, and that PING has since "updated." Seems like quite the condemnation of the "advancements" made by PING in the G15 and G20 series, right? Sure, they might be favorite or "old reliable" drivers, but wouldn't you think that PING would have made enough improvements in the last 3-4 years to make LW and LO want to change to an updated model?
What do you think?
Full disclosure: I have a G5, so am obviously in the market for an upgrade. But these photos make me wonder if it isn't smarted to but a lightly used G10 or G15 instead of plopping down $300 for a new G20 (since LW and LO don't seem to think that the G15/G20s are any better than the previous lines).
