Ping eye 2 help

4 posts in this topic

As a graduation present I was given a set of ping eye 2's. At the time I just played once in awhile and was not to concerned about how well I played. I have since improved immensely and just shot my first round under 90. I have only been playing for about 1.5 years but have fallen in love with the game. The problem with the ping eye 2's is that the grips are pretty shot and need to be replaced. I am having a hard time to deciding whether to replace the grips or replace the clubs. Seeing as getting the clubs regripped could run from 60-90 dollars and I could buy some newer used clubs for 300 or so I can't decide what to do. I am certainly going to continue playing and once my NCAA sports career ends I will be playing even more. Those of you who have more knowledge than I do about golf equipment could help me out with a few options of used clubs I could look at and any experience you have had with this same problem. Thank you very much.

If you like them, get them regripped. The Ping Eye 2 and the Tommy Armour 845 series are two of the best cavity-back iron models of the pre-2000 era.

In a recent scramble, a thirty-something guy played Eye2s, and he just smoked those irons on the practice range. (Unfortunately, he was on another team). Some current players have bought them and had them reshafted with modern tubes.

I played Eye2 clones (by Pro Tour) from 1994 to 2008. Main reason I switched was I couldn't bend the stiff shafts anymore.

I have new Pings but still have and still play my Eye 2s, love those clubs. Have them re-gripped. And don't ever get rid of them even if you do get another set (which you will), they fun to go out and play after you get the "new" technology.

    • I agree there may be repercussions from using force to restrain a criminal but I believe as long as the force was used to only restrain the individual and no additional bodily harm was done the courts would be lenient in their ruling and most likely no charges would result in most jurisdictions.   The alternative is the courts send a message to all victims of crimes that they are helpless and must solely depend on the police to capture criminals even when they are face to face with them.    
    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/bweiss711/round/1137850 A couple of firsts in this round.  It was my first round using the GG tags, and it was also my first round ever under 100.  If you want to see what 18 holes looks like when you have no clue where the ball is going off the tee and have no short game at all to speak of.... check out this round!
    • I think the point is, if the victim of a non-violent theft decides to use violence against the thief well after the crime was committed, he opens himself up to all kinds of trouble. Obviously it's different if someone gets jumped or car-jacked and the criminal is the first one to threaten or use violence. I'm not sure how pepper spray is classified in terms of being a weapon or not but I imagine using it could legally be considered assault in a situation like this.  
    • Well, I did it!  Been taking hacks at golf courses for 20 years, started actually practicing 7 weeks ago, and I finally mother-effing broke 100 yesterday.  Shot 96 at a course I had only played one time before about 8 years ago. This was easily the most consistent I've ever hit the ball into the greens (8 GIRs) and my driving was as good as it has been all season.  The biggest thing with the driver was deciding to stop trying to be perfect on the tee.  Meaning, I wasn't concerning myself with how I thought I should be ideally hitting the club, instead, I just hit it the way I naturally hit it right now, played the "power fade" aimed out over the left side of the fairway, and mostly kept it in play.  I was still inconsistent off the tee with a few pop ups and pulled shots, but for the most part, I stayed out of trouble. The even better news is that I shot 96 and my short game was terrible. I had a couple duffs in sand traps and from the rough around the greens.  Plus, of my 8 GIRs, I 3-putted 5 of them and it wasn't always the lag putt that was the problem.  I missed a few 3 footers that you just can't miss.  So, I've still got plenty of strokes to remove from my score once I actually start to work on shots around the green.  To this point, all of my practice has focused full swings with the irons and driver.  So, needless to say, I'm really excited about this.  I think i'm just going to play the rest of the season with the same practice focus.  Might be time to start a "member swing" thread for my driver.  And in the off-season, the focus will shift to the short game. Unfortunately, it might be a few weeks before I'm able to get out for 18 again, but I can't wait to get out there and try to do this again.
    • The incident in the OP doesn't sway my opinion on gun control one way or the other. Isolated incident in which some angry, old white dude should lose his right to carry indefinitely, but nothing that makes me believe that every gun carrier needs to be affected or restricted due to this incident. The John Wayne comments from some of y'all however, do make me think that gun laws need to be seriously revisited. The fact that some of you...ahem...more extreme individuals are actually permitted to carry is frightening indeed. And before there is an uproar, let me be clear that I have no issue with most of you who carry as your comments seemed to be well balanced and rational. Some others...not so much. It's seems pretty obvious to me that your right to bear arms should be dependant upon on your ability to not lose your shit when you're pissed off.
