Ping G20 3 wood or Callaway X Hot?

5 posts in this topic

I really like hitting a 3 wood off the tee. I have G20 irons, but want to get a new 3 wood. I've read that the X Hot is the best for most amateur golfers. Any suggestions?

Personally I prefer the XHot. Shape reminds of the old GBB fairway woods and it's pretty easy to hit. G20 is good as well, both designed with similar performance characteristics. XHot has a deeper face, G20 is more shallow, just depends on what look you like at address.

Just a suggestion, if you have a chance try the G25 you may really like it, I have not played the G20 to compaire?

But both may son and I have the G25 4w they are 16.5*, well balanced very easy to hit.

I bought the the x2 hot 3W and 5W this year and absolutely love them. I can hit the 5W well both off the tee and fairway, but mainly use the 3W only off the tee (I'm sure better golfers would have no problem hitting this 3W off the fairway, unfortunately I'm not one of them yet).

I have the Taylormade RBz stage 2 and don't regret it one bit. I got the Callaway X Hot iron set (4-aw) for 2013 Christmas and decided to try out the 3 wood and driver just for the fun of it at Golfmsith one day. I'm really wish I didn't love my RBz stage 2 so much or else I would get it. I too tee off with a 3 wood mostly. However, I did just buy the X Hot driver today. Can't wait to play it. See what I did there?  ;)

    •  I hate the Be Better Golf guy. He gets great guests than doesn't know to shut up and let them speak. Annoying as heck.   I was really surprised by the poor play in that video. I though tthose guys would be better. But I do give them credit for showing their bad shots. They could've only shown the good ones .
    • Got a chance to take some on course video over the weekend. I should do more of this to get a better idea of what my actual swing looks like. I still need to get a new smartphone tripod and I can start vlogging again. Angles are a little off but nothing crazy. Driver   Stance is maybe a hair on the narrow side. The swing looks better than the results would indicate. I really thought I was still getting the club past parallel and across the line. Irons/Wedge   I didn't get a face on of a full iron swing so I'm posting this flighted wedge instead. Not exactly the same thing but it will have to do for now. Big takeaway on the swing is I'm still swinging too far right with the clubhead a little underplane and too shallow. I've been having some low point issues and it seems to make sense. Miss is still on the toe and an overdraw or a push, although from watching my videos again I realized that I still aim to the right, so I think my pushes aren't even as bad as I think they are, only that I'm already lined up right of target to begin with. I'm going to have to change my pre-shot routine to incorporate better aiming. Pitching   I included the full speed video of my pitching because I wanted to look at my tempo. Still pretty Fruit-Ninja-y. Putting Figured I'd take a putting video. This was on the 18th green, after the face on video of my driver and the flighted wedge, so a mini vlog of sorts. I'm trying something out where I hold the putter with only my right hand and then hold my whole hand with my left for stability. I was playing around with distance control because I tend to leave lag putts way short and I noticed that my left hand in the double overlap grip kind of acts as a brake on the stroke. Putting the hands together lets the putterhead pendulum better under its own weight. As you can see I definitely didn't leave the first putt short and the speed on the second putt was perfect. My putting in general has improved since I've gotten adjusted to my putter modification. Aim is a lot better and I'm hitting my lines which is leading to better results on mid-length putts. I also need to read long putts better, just kind of lazy about it, but I'm leaving some second putts longer than they should be because I'm not reading the first putts and aiming properly. I do like the grip change though and I think once I get used to that, the distance control will be better. I have some thoughts on the full swing but I'll hash them out later. Maybe 
    • I have seen a few oddities for which I have contacted Arccos. For instance it recommends clubs and distances that are longer than my averages by up to 20-30m and sometimes suggests taking a PW off the tee on a Par 5. As said before it is a beta version currently but with work could be very interesting.
    • I can only speak for myself but if it is a quick process I wouldn't blink an eye.  If it helps your game, and doesn't contribute to slow play, it wouldn't bother me.    I'm bothered by the guys that take 4 practice swings, back off of the ball, get a line and then take more practice swings.  Or worse yet, wait until it is their turn to take their club out of the bag and then take forever to play.
