Well, this is the second time I have had a problem with my Ping i20 irons. I noticed why my 9 iron was acting like it was on steroids. The insert from the weight port had fallen out. Instead of being D0 it was a C8. Thankfully Ping's customer service is always great and I am sure that they will take care of me. As much as I love these irons I have sure had my fair share of issues with them.
Played this weekend and the swing is starting to come around. The hooks in the long clubs are beginning to work their way out which is nice. The new course sets up pretty tough. It is pretty long for a par 70, it has tiny greens that have a lot of break and are blazing fast. The new bunker renovations they did are nice but they are tough to maneuver. I played nine holes Saturday morning and I think I was in 3-4 green side bunkers. This setup is going to force me to play very smart. It is really going to challenge me and whatever my handicap becomes, it will be earned for sure. I am sure it is going to go up a bit to start the year.
