I couldnt disagree more when you say Ping cashes in on gimmicky marketing just as much as the next company. So you're saying they cash in like TM when it comes to gimmicky marketing? Ping has a couple funny commercials, but I dont recall them promising more yards with each release every 90 days.
Oh come on. They may not be as obvious in their marketing as TM is. But every new driver, iron and putter they come out with will help you hit it further, closer to the hole, and sink more putts, just like TM, Titleist, Nike, etc.
My point was that golf marketing, from practically every manufacturer (including Ping), is about like listening to a political debate.
And for the record, the two drivers I have now are TM and Ping
