Ping Drivers G20 or i 20?

Recommended Posts

Island Par    0

I am a fan of the putters and fairway woods but I really haven't tried their drivers, I am a 24hcp weekend warrior and I was playing a Callaway FT-iz and am considering a switch to either a G20, or the i20.  I am looking for both carry and roll which when reading reviews show that the G20 provides both but I would like to hear from G20 or i20 users to help me make a good decision.

Thanks in advance.

G20 is a really good and forgiving driver. I play one and really like it. The price is right these days at $199 about everywhere and you can probably do better especially with a used one. Guys that have to have the newest and greatest will soon be trading up for the g25. I've never played the i20 but have played the Answer as a demo. I like the shaft options of the Answer and the ease of changing shafts. But you do pay$$ for that luxury. I suggest finding a shop that has a demo or used one and take it out on the course for a round to try. Launch monitors and range balls are OK but I like to hit my ball in real conditions to get a true idea of performance. Good luck.

A driver is not going to give you roll by itself.  It is a combination of your swing, the shaft and the head.  I would get fit by someone who knows what they are doing.   With that said I would stick with an G (20, 25) driver if you want to go Ping.  It is very forgiving.  I have a G20 that I was fit for and I like it quite a bit.

I had the i20 and it is not as forgiving as the g20 from what I understand.  I like the i20 but had an occasional weird hit that would go unusually high on me.  I have heard others have had the same issues.  Only a couple of the pros use them they are all using the G series or the Anser driver which is what I switched to.  Definately the G20 woudl be the best for you.

I game the i20 and it's the only driver that I have kept for over a year, it is a little harder to hit then my friends g20. Being a 24hcp I would advise the g20 just for its forgiving nature.

    • Okay, I gave you those (and removed the 80 one). An 11 index broke par, eh?
    • Trust me, it happens and not due to abuse. I broke a brand new macGregor 3 iron on the very first swing at the driving range after pops bought me the clubs. On my downswing, the head flew off as soon as the ball was hit.The ball bounded about ten feet to the right, the head about 10 yards to the left. The driver I posted above was about 15 years old and never abused. It was my all time favorite club so it was well cared for and I am too cheap to bust clubs out of childish fits of rage. The club also hadn't been used in a decade, then maybe 20 strikes this summer, just as the OP said, head dangling off strands of graphite. The guy who is repairing it has had a hell of a time extracting the shaft from the hosel, too.
    • Just want to get the word out on a relatively new golf ball company, that seemingly makes a great product.  Similar to my Cut Golf topic. Sphera Golf is a new company (debuted in March I believe) that currently offers two different types of golf balls.  The Pro Threes, and the Pro Fours.  The Pro Threes are a 3 piece urethane cover ball that appears to be trying to play the role of ProV1 in their line up.  Their ProV1 X is the Pro Fours, it is a 4 piece urethane cover ball.  I've been playing the Pro Fours off and on this week and for me they seem to perform every bit as well as any other 4 piece urethane cover golf ball. Prices for the Pro Fours start off at $24.99 a dozen while the Fours go for $30 a dozen.  I hope to update this thread with further impressions as I have more time with the ball, but early returns is that it is good ball for the price.
    • Dropped off some old golf shorts and shirts at a local Goodwill store today, My waist size is now 32", and the 34's and 36's were falling off of me! I kept some of the nicer 34's just in case! After the drop off I went into the store to see if there were any golf clubs worth looking at. The selection was pretty sparse, but I did find a Taylor Made R580XD and an original Callaway ERC II! The ERC II even has a stamping on the heel of the club that states, "Non-conforming to USGA rules". This was the club that made for the big kerfuffle, and lawsuit, between Callaway and the USGA. I bought them both and will go try them out. Considering modern golf technology, I'm not expecting much. But, if I can't hit them, I'll pass them on. Maybe the next guy can. At 2 bucks a club, how could I go wrong?! Dang! I hit the J instead of the H in the title!
    • Not a bad idea. I have some impact stickers on their way in the mail, when they get here I'll try that out, thanks!
