PING Eye 2s Are the Best Irons Ever Created

Just finished my round with my Ping Eye 2s. Shot a smooth 147. This game is incredibly shit smooth with Ping Eye 2s. On the range before my round people stopped and stared with amazement as I smoothly shanked 20 in a row and even killed a guy.

On the first hole I drove into the right rough. Luckily I had my trusty ping eye 2 6 iron to snap in half to relieve my frustration.

The brakes on my golf cart failed, but luckily my trusty ping eye 2 3 iron was up to the job and I managed to smoothly wedge it under the front of the cart, bending it in half and I came to a smooth stop.

On the 18th hole I was 150 out so I hit a smooth 9 iron with my trusty ping eye 2 irons and the clubhead went further than the ball for a smooth goose kill. Then I smoothly smothered a smooth PW onto the smooth green for a smooth +5 on the hole for a smooth round of terrible golf.

On the drive home I was lucky I had my Ping Eye 2s to throw out the window for no other reason than pure frustration for this thread getting my hopes up for no reason.

I am relatively late to the "spill your guts on some random webpage" game, but I must say this is freaking awesome. I've never thought about replacing g judge smails, but this will get serious consideration.

Hehe!!
I can't except $89 as I would be ripping you off. There is no way they are as good as the one's famaousdavis picked up and I very much doubt they will make you play as good as him. I mean, the man is a legend in the golfing world. Yours for $88

You sir are a gentleman and a scholar. I can see why you picked up the Eye 2s in the first place.

Can you imagine how far in the rear view mirror Jacks records would be if Tiger had only played Eye 2s?

He could punch fade a PING 2 iron all over Royal St. George's on one leg and still lap the field!

Thank you for the kind comment.

I have heard a rumour from the most reliable of sources that Nike have in fact bought the design of the Eye 2's to give to Tiger when he's recovered from injury. Although they have admitted that Sean Foley may have to pick famousdavis's brain (now there is an oxymoron) on how he does his punch fades. We shall then see Tiger obliterate Jack's record by winning every major for the next 10 years. More if he in fact sacks Foley and hires famousdavis, although this may be difficult as the latter doesn't want to give up his day job for golf.

The photo is of the Ping Eye 2+ irons, not the Ping Eye 2 + no + that I purchased in mint condition for a song.  For those of you who don't know, the Ping Eye 2 + no + came out in 1989.  It was similar in design to the original Ping Eye 2 square groove with a few distinctions.  First, the soles of the PW, 9 iron and 8 iron were more scalloped allowing for greater shot variety.  Second, they added additional weight toward the toe, creating a perfectly balanced head designed for ultimate shotmaking and forgiveness.   The difference between the Ping Eye 2+ and the + no + is small but important to note.  The + no + model has square grooves.  This model was created while Karsten and the USGA were in battle over the square groove controversy.  Also, it's difficult to find a set of Ping Eye 2+ irons with the ZZ-Lite shaft (the gold standard in shafts).   Most Ping Eye 2+ irons can be found with the KT shaft or KT-M shaft.  Both are stiffer than the ZZ-Lite and have less playability.  I have the best version and was able to negotiate a price with the owner of the golf store.  The price I paid was probably $100 less than what an average customer would have paid.  I think the owner wanted me to have them after seeing me hit them in the simulator.  I don't think he's seen that kind of consistency since he opened.  Before I left he said "man, you sure know how to hit a golf ball".  I simply replied "the trick is not in knowing, it's in execution".  It's these little experiences that make life that much more enjoyable.

For you perhaps, but if you are serious I would have to say that you are the most conceited, arrogant prick that I have ever heard of. Your condescending and patronising nonsense is enough to make anyone cringe. If you truly say the things you claim to, the only reputation you would have would be of a deluded jerk who people would pay NOT to play with. You are the kind of guy who, if people saw your name down with them on the time sheet,the erasers would be out in a hurry and you would find yourself begging people to play with you. Many might do it once, but it would be their first and only time. The plus side would be that they have a lifetime's worth of stories to regale peope with in the category of "the biggest ****wit I ever met". Naturally you will respond by saying that people queue up to play with you and list the reasons why.

I just read on ESPN.COM that Ben Crane is switching to the Eye 2's and says he now no longer needs Jesus to play slowly.

    • Here are my 2021 Golf Goals; a few more than last year. 1. I want to shoot par for nine holes, and break 80 for 18 holes, just one round of each is all I need. I think I can do it on the front nine of my home course (2910 yards, par 36), but I’m still gonna need to practice to get that done. 2. I’d like to get to the point where I’m averaging around 42 for nine holes, which means between 82 and 85 for eighteen holes. What I need to do is the same as #1, but I probably need more lean on irons/hybrids.  3. I want to get my handicap down to 14 or lower (17.4 right now) and KEEP it there. I wasn’t specific enough last year, so I’m making sure I say that this year! Again, practice is key. 4. I’m hitting 28% of greens (5/18) right now on average. I want to get that up to at least 40% (7/18), and to do that, I will put forth about 3/4 of my bucket on irons, because that’s what I’m hitting for most of my approach shots. 5. I want to improve my bunker play. To what standard, I don’t know, mainly because my bunker game is super inconsistent right now. There’s a practice bunker next to the range, so I could hit shots out of that to practice hitting different-length bunker shots. 6. I’m averaging 61% of fairways right now, so I’m gonna keep the goal from last year, get to 70% or higher. Same practice thing as last year. 7. I would like to limit my three-putts to two max per round, which means I need to spend a good amount of time on the practice green, practicing my lag putting. Also, I’d like to get my average number of putts down to 34 or less (36 avg right now). 8. This one may be the most important to me, which is why I saved it for last. I want to make All Conference in the golf season. To do that, I’m gonna need to place in the top 12 in scoring average of the 50 or so golfers in our conference (prob need to average 42). I know I have the game, because when our last season was cut due to COVID, I wasn’t even playing my best, As I said, #8 may be the one I want the most, especially since I saw where I was at the end of last season.
    • Why? I haven’t been to Walmart without a mask since ... April?   More importantly, I hope your friend recovers soon.
    • @Esox, the ball could never be “declared” lost. It could be “deemed” lost, but that was a “rules” thing - a player’s actions could result in this “deeming” but a player couldn’t say, for example, “I deem it lost.” Also, a ball can’t be “lost” in the Rules in a penalty area (or a water hazard), even if it’s a “lost” ball in English. This is the Rules of Golf forum, so the words we use are going to have the meanings and definitions and usages that apply in the Rules of Golf. @Red, you replied, but you just quoted my post and didn’t say anything new.
    • Trying to keep solid contact. Sequence just feels weird.  I've been working on hitting a lot of punch shots. Also trying to slow down on full swings but that seems to make things worse lol. I’m not sure why my shots are off the toe. 
    • I'm old. We considered the act of dropping a ball a declaration that the original was lost and the dropped ball was in play. If you didn't think it was lost, why drop another?
