I was going to buy a set of these irons. The seller checked the build specifications with Ping. They sent him a report from 2018 stating +1” and a swing weight of D5. Seeing as though these clubs were from 2014, I’m guessing that someone returned them to Ping to be reworked? The standard swing weight on these clubs is listed as D0.

Does this sound like a logical explanation? It looks like I’m going to have to buy new clubs fitted to me. Where is a good place, or person in Wisconsin who does this?

One inch extra will give you about 5-6 SW points assuming nothing else was changed with head weights or grips.

Sorry, I don't have any tips on where to go for knowledgeable building/fitting up by you. Maybe someone else here will have a recommendation.

I passed on the G25’s and tried out a set of G30’s. I put a impact label on the face of the 7 iron with a circle dead center in the face. If I divided the face into four sections, all of my shots were in the lower right hand section of the face. Most of them were in-between the center and the hosel, with none of them hitting the hosel.

Would this be a fitting issue, swing issue, combination of both, or something I should just live with. I did go out with them and hit about 100+ balls. They did function much better than my normal.

FWIW just typing the @ sign doesn't tag the person or mention them (with a notification).


You have to select their name from the list.

@Adam C will be notified, now.

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
