Ping club alterations

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am wondering if I can get some answers to a couple questions I have.

I recently bought some older Ping irons from a buddy of mine to replace my Cleveland irons.

They have a color code of Green.

If I use them and find out I would rather have a different color code, can I send them into Ping to get them altered?

How much does it cost?

Thanks for the advice in advance!

Ping will have you go to an authorized retailer to have them send the clubs in to be adjusted. The nice part of this is that they will actually change the color dot on the club and update their database to have the new color code attached to the serial number in their system. The retailer will charge you, probably a few dollars more than Ping charges them (5-7 dollars per club) and shipping.

I too bought used Pings. The guy I got them from said they could only go a couple of degrees either way. I have not yet been fitted but we were both the same size. 6'1. They're the only cubs I've hit so I don't know any different. You can look on Ping"s color code chart and check your height and distance front your wrist to the floor to get a rough estimate.

That link has a chart that shows how much they can bend the club.  They say they can do 5 color codes for most clubs, which is about 4*

I don't know what the cost would be.

You definitely should get a fitting for Ping irons and see if you require a different color code.

Probably unless you work with them to get them bent by Ping. They'll make their money that way.

I got fitted two different times, first guy did not spend much time with me and so I felt another look would be in order. I still didn't get the clubs from those guys either due to a poor business behavior. I ended up just calling some pro that was a ping guy to have them sent out to me. Go to a fitter and have them set you up. You don't have to purchase anything.

FWIW- I just got fitted for Ping irons and it was a great experience. Guy spent a couple hours with me and let me hit several different clubs/shafts. He knew I was buying.

I would hope you would get the same service from someone just trying to adjust existing clubs, but the oldster in me says pbly not (unless it's someone you know personally).

    • I've spent the week of Thanksgiving in Pinehuerst (at Talamore, actually) every year since 2007.  We've had a very few frost delays, and most years its really pleasant.  We've played in shorts lots of times.  Myrtle Beach will be about the same, or slightly warmer. Its a great time for either, not at all crowded, less slow play problems, easier to get a seat in a restaurant, you'll love it.  If you decide on Pinehurst, I can recommend a few good places.
    • I have these too, I like the look.  I really doubt that there's any advantage to be gained.
    • You could vote 0 if that number is closer to the percentage than 1. That's why there's a "0" option.
    • I'm still recovering from my golf marathon, but I'll write just a little bit now.  First and foremost, this was an absolute blast, thanks to the huge effort of the organizers, @mvmac and @iacas, to the sponsors, to the staff at Talamore and MidSouth, and to the attitude and efforts of all of the players.  I was lucky enough this past week to play with every one of my teammates (when I count my pre- and post-tournament fun rounds), and against every player on the West team except for @Golfingdad.  Ten matches total for the 2015 and 2017 Newport Cups, and I haven't been in the group with him once.  Fortunately, I've been able to play with him in Palm Springs a couple of times. I loved the matches, from watching @Pretzel and @phillyk bomb it almost off the planet, to watching my partner @bkuehn1952 sink every putt inside 10 feet (keeping the pressure off of me), to seeing @mchepp try to grind me to dust, one crumb at a time.  I enjoyed the mix  of personalities, the wide range of ages, over 40 years from top to bottom, the huge variations in our golf games.  I'm REALLY happy that the top end of the ages was victorious in the end.  I'm absolutely amazed that the end result was this close once again, although it may just be an indication that we all have reasonably accurate handicaps.   As someone mentioned earlier in this thread, a few of us blue team players talked about the challenge balls on Friday night, with most of it being less than completely enthusiastic.  As it turned out, however, I thought the challenge was pretty exhilarating, really ramping up the pressure.  Of course, my match on Saturday with @mchepp was nothing but pressure to start with, I'm not sure I needed to ramp it up any more.  You know, for us old guys, a heart attack on 18 tee wouldn't be a good thing.   Enough for now.  Once again, my thanks go out to @iacas and @mvmac, the sponsors, the venues, the players, and especially to @RandallT for keeping my lovely wife informed.
    • I'm the new guy here on this forum, so I imagine this debate has been going on for awhile so I'll just respectfully respond to this by giving my opinion on the matter: Bull-feathers! There are four things that determine the distance you hit a golf ball; the loft angle on the clubhead, the length of the club, the speed of your swing, and how close to the center sweet spot you connect with the ball. Everything else, IMO, is marketing BS. But as I said at the very beginning of this thread, my swing is not the same as it was 16 years ago when I got my X-14's so I'll be buying something. What that something is at this point I'm still not 100% certain.
