Ping G25 vs G20 irons

5 posts in this topic

Full disclosure , I am a 25 handicap . Tried some G25 graphite irons at Golfsmith and hit them really well . Don't carry lower  than a 5 iron and hit it tops , 160 yds with steel shafts Cobras . Am a senior with good flexibility . Question : 1 . Is it worth spending the extra $$$ for the g25 set  . 2 . Is it worth spending more for graphite . I know graphite should give more distance but since I go from 5 iron to hybrid  , will the graphite expense be worth it as well ?

I actually think that the G20's with the wider sole, you would find more forgiving.  My brother who is about a 13HC and grew up playing blades, switched to them and loves them.

I love my G25's with the stock CFS steel shaft, I went for the 4-PW, I use a Ping Tour 50. 54 and 58 wedge and love them.

Looking at a 3 or 4 wood right now maybe the G25 or the new Cobra but will fill the gap with a hybrid depending on the wood I get.

I was not to crazy about graphite shaft irons I tried them all and for the little extra distance I could not control or feel I was in control of my irons but hey that is just me.

Great irons, but there are a lot of brands that are very nice out right now.

I have not played the G20 but I have a set of G25 (steel regular) and I love them. My Callaway Razr X are a close second place.

Up to last year I played various Callaway super game improvement irons with graphite shafts (e.g., Diablo Edge). Late last year I switched to game improvement irons with steel shafts in regular flex and I like them a lot more. To be honest I don't think I lost any distance and I definitely gained more accuracy and feel with the steel shafts.

Welcome to the G team love the G25's also. I also came from Graphite Callaways X20, prior was X18's to the steel pings this was the best move and money spend in a long time.

    • I bet against that for a couple of reasons.   First of all, in this day and age there's virtually zero tolerance for DUI, and rightfully so, regardless of celebrity.  In addition, all police vehicles in Florida now have dash cams that are automatically on when the emergency lights are activated.  Many jurisdictions now outfit officers with body cams as well.  As a result, everything an officer does is subject to close review....and if you pull over a car for erratic driving at 3am, that is found to be registered to Tiger Woods, I guaran-damn-tee that it's going to get reviewed... The discretion that cops once had in a lot of these types of situations just doesn't exist any more.  No cop is likely to risk his career by letting an obvious DUI slide these days, even if it is a celebrity.  Maybe especially then.
    • It doesn't appear to me he was aware he was breaking a rule... until now
    • For the average golfer, getting a driver "that won't hurt your game" is critical. Getting fitted forces you to take a look at what really works, rather than what you think works. As for tech, a lot of it has been incremental change, with an occasional tech bubble that may or may not take off. Depends on when "recent" starts.... 2004: TM R7 driver features adjustable weights in the head to help shape ball flight. 2008: Muzuno MP600 driver features "fast  track" slots in the sole that let you move weighted screws to left or right. It was going on clearance about the time I got fitted for my Callaway HyperX Tour driver. 2012: TM goes with "loft up" ... touting high-launch, low-spin drivers as the route to exceptional distance. Several OEMs start making mini-drivers. TM also adds SLDR and Jetspeed drivers. 2015: "Turbulators," small fins in the crown of the Ping G30 drivers that promise better wind flow over the head. 2017: The Callaway Epic driver with "jailbreak" technology: two metal posts behind the clubface that promise better power transfer through the ball, and a gain of about 10 yards... It depends on how much the technology is new, and how much it is recycled from a few years back. And so we haven't forgotten, parting wisdom from above...  
    • He must have been very messed up or the authorities would not have arrested him.  Why was he driving in that state? Where was Notah to look out and take his keys? Imo he must have been way messed up. .09 breathalyzer or something and a minor infraction like a rolling stop and there's no way he's arrested unless he is not well liked anyway in that area.
