Was fitted for my new driver today........

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Even though it wasn't in the Top 5 in my mind, the Ping G20 made the cut today and will be in my bag tomorrow.  Went in for a fitting and ended up with a 12* G20, R-Flex, 44" long, swingweighted to D2.5.  With it setup that way, it's pretty much point and shoot for me on the range.  Once it's all assembled tomorrow, I'll get a range session in, and then play a couple rounds with it this weekend.  

 

What I really noticed is that it's a lot more forgiving than the Srixon I'm currently playing.  The ballflight, even with my crappy swing is very predictable from one shot to the next.

 

Looked at quite a few clubs and decided on the Ping after realizing that after owning a couple adjustable drivers, I need to get something setup for me, and just leave it along and work on my swing instead of tinkering when things are going a bit awry.

Got my first range session in today with this new beast, and I have to say that so far, I'm loving it. I typically have a very low ballflight off the tee, but this thing brought everything up and now I'm getting a high but penetrating ball flight.  With the low compression range balls I was hitting, I was landing them all around 210-220 but couldn't see the roll-out.  With real golf balls, this should finally get me out to around 250 consistently, which was my goal for this year.  All I needed was to get back to 250 yards off the tee, and everything else would work it's way out.  My driver this year has been the bane of my existence on the golf course.

 

I should have been fitted a few months ago and went to the higher loft back then and I wouldn't have experienced half the problems with my game.  Trying to get the ball up into the air has never went well for me, so having the additional loft has been very beneficial for me.  

 

Solid, Solid driver........  Going to play this weekend and then get a playing lesson with the Pro sometime next week to help this handicap start in the right direction again.

Enjoy your new driver!

I use to game a original burner driver and I could really crush it with the long shaft. With the next hole I would slice it so I went and got fit at the start of this year and got a lesson with it to boot. Night and day . The weakest part off game quickly became the best as the year went on. Probably cuz everything else slipped ha
