I went from TaylorMade in 2011 to Callaway in 2012 and now to PING.

Opinion on the irons -

  1. Hands down the most accurate irons I have used to date
  2. Feel heavier than my old Callaway RAZR irons
  3. "W" iron, having a bit of trouble figuring out distance as I am used to "AW" from Callaway.."W" is a bit longer club
  4. Overall the irons hit further than my past irons.
  5. Very comfortable grips.  White line on the iron I have missed, it helps getting everything squared.  My RAZR X didn't have that.

Opinion on the driver -

1.  Longest driver ever owned (268 into the wind).  RAZR Fit was average 250 yard, wind would put me about 240

2.  Found that I need to change the shaft from regular to stiff to improve accuracy due to swing speed.

3.  Largest head on a driver I have ever owned, actually helped me feel a bit more confident

Opinion on the fairway woods -

1.  Still not 100% sold on the woods.  I like the fact there is no gloss/reflection from the driver or woods.

Thanks for the feedback.  I'll be reviewing the G25 driver for the site and I think our G25 irons review will be published soon.

The W is equivalent to the PW and the U to the AW. That would explain why you hit the W further than your AW.

Hi Golfingdad -

Yeah, the last three years I would say.  I play a lot of golf though, probably more than most...this last year I played around 60 rounds of golf.  I feel very fortunate to have been able to have done that.


And thank you Kujan for the heads up on that, it was driving me nuts.

I have the G15 irons.  I can't see any difference between them and the G20s.  With the G25s, I only see a slightly thinner sole.

I've never been a big fan of PING woods.  I prefer Callaway woods.

Hi Dragon...yeah I had the RAZR Fit woods and was unable to get the comfort level I was looking for.

I did test the G25 3 wood today against the F26 Nickent 3 wood and was surprised...Ping won.  I honestly thought based on the hybrid f26 that the Ping was going to lose the battle...but not only did it win, it won big.  Distance was about 20 yards longer on the Ping.  Accuracy was much better on the Ping as well.

Funny you should say that, I play G15 irons but love my Cobia woods and hybrid, go figure.

My Bag:

Titleist Bag

Callaway Razr Hawk Driver

Callaway Diablo Octane 3 Wood (I love the 200cc oversized head, in particular since I've often struggled with 3 Woods).

Cobra Baffler Rail H Hybrids 17 & 22. I also have a Baffler Rail H 25 Degree that I will swap out with my 5 Iron on long courses or if I blowing up with the 5 Iron. I'm not always proficient with the 5 Iron, so the hybrid comes into play when that happens...

PING G15 Irons 5-PW

Titleist Vokey Spin Milled Wedges 50, 54 & 58

Odyssey Black Series TD Putters #1 & #5 .  When I sour on one, I have the other.  Usually, I stay with the blade, but when greens are really slow or putting gets into my head , I throw the mallet into the bag.

Callaway Balls - Whichever I can get in RockBottom Ammo Boxes!  I like the HX-Hots and Big Bertha Diablos...  Or the Warbird Plus works if I can't find the others.

I am new here, and I would like to comment on The G25 irons. I had RBZ last year and didn't really care for them at all. Tried the new pings and Wow, I'm glad I did. I've always played a stiff flex, but got fitted(a must) and I'm a reg flex and hit the 7 iron 10 yds farther on avg w/ little effort. Waiting on mine to come in. An absolute must try iron if in the market for new set.

I also tried the g25 driver. I really liked the way it looked and hit it over and over along w/ titleist 913 d2. I hit the d2 much better and went w/ it. Got stiff flex whiteboard shaft.

I have been using the i15 driver for 3+ years now, and can't get it out of my bag.  Love PING drivers, and I was eyeballing the S56 irons too...

    • Was windy today, and didn't get above 50 F during my round. Played the short course (par 71 cr 63) and shot an 83 (43-40). Hit the ball reasonably well most of the day. Missed all birdie putts, of which I had 4 that I would consider reasonably makeable (within 15 feet or so), including stuffing it to 3.5 ft on 18, only to miss on the low side.
    • Bryson DeChambeau hits a drive even he hasn’t hit before  
    • I got a new net and mat so I can do some testing with the Mevo this off-season. I want to have a much more accurate understanding of my carry distances. I will hopefully do some work with the driver as well. I will also be able to continue some Evolvr lessons into the spring, and then just do monthly checks throughout the summer with my instructor to make sure I am not regressing with any of the priorities. Second part of the Mevo work is to figure out which 3 of these clubs will make the bag. I plan to also keep a standard 4 iron and will get some numbers on that. I only have 2 wedges after my PW so I have room for three clubs. I’d rather have the versatility up at the top end of the clubs anyway. I’ll try to get some numbers and post them here to make the decision on which 3 clubs I will be keeping in the bag. Lofts are 20, 19, 18 and 15.5.
    • In the US the threat is about 69 deaths per 100,000 population (Johns Hopkins University). Pretty small but expect it would increase some if we just unlocked everything.  I am not in favor of lockdowns, they do more damage than the virus would do.  I am in favor of reasonable (problem is who defines reasonable) restrictions on some activities.  In the specific case of golf, I mentioned what is being done in this area in my first post.  Seems like these are reasonable and not much of an effort for the courses to do. 
    • Employees must not be too happy about the move. Unlike Orlando, golf in Connecticut is extremely poor to non-existent December through March. Hope they bring their indoor golf simulators with them.😉
