I have recently made a move into the world of Ping with a new Ping G410 driver and a set of G425 Irons. After 20 years of playing I got myself fitted and found I needed a 2 degree flat iron. Ping was easy to get fitted. I like the 410 driver with its 8 different adjustment hosle.  Hitting much longer and straighter. I would love to try more Ping clubs at a Demo day if I could find one.

I've attended 3 demo days this year... Titleist, Callaway and Taylormade.  In my life I've never been to a Ping demo day.  Not saying they don't exist...

I know they have demo days at our local executive course (at the same time as other manufacturers).

Ping has demo days. They’ve held several in the past few years at courses near me.

I’m a Tech Rep for Ping... meaning I do the demo/fitting days.  I live in Massachusetts and due to COVID there are no “demo days “here or in NH.  Everything is done by appointment.  The facility offers it as a “fitting” day and people that sign up are assigned a time slot.  I am then given the paper with the scheduled appointments.  Around here Taylormade and Callway have been instructed to do the same per state regulations.

 

So there are no more “free for all “demo days where anyone and theirs brother just walks up to hit clubs.

Yes, of the 2 demo days I've attended this year and the one I'm about to attend... they're all by appointment... half hour sessions.  No line up of guys up and down the range whacking drivers and irons like in the old days.

I got fitted for my current irons at a Ping Demo Day... I think in 2017?  2018?  Not sure in the modern era.

I understand the Covid shutting down demo days.Governor Baker is reopening things this weekend. Do you think Ping will consider starting up demo days again?  

I understand your frustration with having "Free for all" Demo days but how else are you going to get people to try your product? I have recently bought a set of G 425 Irons and a G410 Driver all new. I love them both and would like to add a Ping 7 wood to my lineup. At $300 I want to at least have a chance to try it along side Ping Hybrids. Most stores allow you to try them with a fitting that cost $50. The $50 is credited toward the club purchase but that kind of makes the experience less than enjoyable to say the least.

Can I order a Ping club without those Arrcos grips? I have grips I would be happy to get the club with no grip rather then the Arrcos grip.

    • For me, this highlights the 2019 rule change that no longer limits this type of penalty to 4 strokes (or the error/mistake being active for 2 holes), but instead carries on, per hole, until the problem is corrected.  That is something I just learned now, so thanks, I guess? FWIW, this means that if you forget a 15th club in your bag and play the whole round with it, you need to add a cool 36 strokes to your (let's call it not great to begin with) 95, to end up with an absurdly high smooth 131!  Wow.  The only silver lining I see is that since you get to only record a net double for handicap purposes, that round may end up being recorded with ESC as a 104 instead...  🙂
    • Day Eighteen, June 12, 2021. Played 18 today. First ever bogey free round. 1 eagle, 1 birdie, and 16 pars, 68.
    • I don’t see why the PGA/LPGA/Champions don’t play a mixed tournament from 3 different tees. Each tour competing against itself, but playing a 3-some, one person from each.  I think it’d be one hell of a tournament with something for everyone. 
    • Don't want to be cynical but I've never bought shoes that didn't feel comfortable from the get-go.    If they aren't comfortable when I leave the store, I leave them in the store.
