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?  ;)

    • A run of the mill slice is something I can actually live with (though it'll be an annoying existence).  A push slice is probably the most off line I ever get with a shot (even more than a shank due to distance) as it starts right and goes further right.  Luckily those are so rare that when they do pop up they usually aren't in a spot where it causes me trouble.
    • The point that I was specifically responding to was, just because you're on top of another group, it still may be appropriate to allow others through.  Just because @No Mulligans hadn't experienced it, didn't mean that the concept was moot by any means... And fwiw, our relatively fast group has allowed 5-somes through....
    • These guys haven't gotten to where they are without being ultra-competitive.  I don't think the lack of money had any real effect on their desire to win.
    • The slice is just such a devastating miss for your game. It is a shot that I really have to eliminate from my game. I am an incredibly inconsistent player, to the point where I can be hitting a beautiful high fade and start to go pin hunting for several holes, having several looks at birdie in a row and then within the next several holes be almost unable to hit the ball without hitting a horrendous slice. I am so inconsistent that it is not abnormal for me to go something like par, birdie, par, birdie, par, quad, quad, quad in an eight hole stretch.
    • I recently won some pro shop credit ($100) at a semi-private course nearby.  Thing is, I need to use it before November or it expires. I don't really need any clothes or accessories so I was thinking I might put it towards a new driver.  The problem is, while I'm sure I can test it out on the range, they just have regular old range balls and I'm doubtful there's any kind of fitting process.  I also can't really play a round there with a demo club unless I'm someone's guest or I'm willing to shell out $100+ to play off-peak times (which I'm not).  There's a decent golf shop down the road from the course that offers fittings for $75/hour, with a $50 credit toward a related purchase within 30 days.  I've never had a proper fitting, so would it make sense to go to the golf shop, get fit, assume I'll probably get a custom shaft, go buy the same driver at the pro shop using my credit, and then buy the shaft from the golf store, applying the fitting credit?  When you get fit and end up with a custom shaft, is the shaft price usually totally on top of the full price of the off-the-rack driver, or is there typically a discount since you're not getting the OEM shaft? Obviously different stores do things differently, but I'm just wondering what is common practice. I'm trying not to overthink it but I also don't want to waste my pro shop credit. Any advice would be much appreciated!
