I had been through a fitting some time ago for Ping G400's, red dot, 1* flat.  Just couldn't spring for the $1200 plus tax plus shipping (graphite AltaCB).   Almost by accident I stumbled on a 9 iron set (4,5,6,7,8,9,W,U,S), red dot, for $800 delivered.  Barely played, upgraded grips that are very nice.  Odd, since 98% of the Pings seem to be black dot, the typically stocked standard.  Finding anyone with red dots is somewhat obscure.  I found out that my original DCI's I have playing with for 20 years are 3/4" longer than "normal".   With the G400's I'm going shorter (normal) shaft and flatter lie, albeit minimal lie adjustment.   Two trips to the range so far.   The tendency is straight, high draws.  Frankly, not going to argue with that.   Distance is about 8-10 over the DCI's.  Again, no arguments.   Need 3-4 more range excursions but I may have lucked into this.   News at 11.

I just went from Ping Zing 2 black dot to ping G 2016 black dot this season. I’ve loved ping irons since a friend first let me play his eye 2’s years ago. I remember those DCI’s. Buddy of mine had them when we were growing up. Nice set. Think you will love the change!

If you think red dots are hard to find.....try looking for orange! I'm 2* flat, and have been swinging G20's since 2011. I just took delivery  of a new set of Titleist 718 AP1's yesterday. Ordered them 2* flat also.

I felt a bit of angst at not buying them where I was fitted last year but they have made plenty on a long laundry list of other items from me.   With taxes and shipping it would have been $1325, a bit of a hard pill.  Regardless, just to verify lie on the new clubs, I put out some cardboard, scribbled an ink marker on the bottom of the club, hit off the cardboard and the skid pattern was centered on the bottom so all appears well.   And the flight pattern at the range looks good so it's a thumbs up so far.   Just have to remember that I'm playing shorter clubs.     enjoy your AP1's !!!

    • Yeah, I don't really see the problem with what he said in the interview. Nothing wrong here imo. He's not the biggest fan of team events and isn't quite comfortable in it compared to every other week where it's just himself. Just because he's one of the best players in the world doesn't mean he's supposed to be a huge fan of team events. IIRC, Tiger didn't come across as the most enthusiastic player in those events either, at least not in some parts of his career. People are different and not everyone enjoy playing in a team. Some love that stuff and soak up all the energy. Others have their energy sapped by those things. It is of course the same for every player, deviating from the typical tour routines, but people deal with it in different ways. Brooks might be one that struggle more with the transition, but I doubt he's the only one.

    • Day 201.  Played 18 holes today.  A course where I should have hit more than the 5 GIR I hit and should have shot lower than the 87 I did.  The driving range was closed before the round, and I hit my opening tee shot O.B..  😞  Not sure why I missed so many shots, especially driver, right.  Will have to do some outdoor practice to complement my indoor practice to ensure I'm not getting wild.
