Worked on the same thing as yesterday. A bunch of really slow 9-3 swings, turning hips/shoulders through impact, keeping right arm from rolling too much over left arm. Left hip is sore, so definitely bringing new muscles into the swing.
Just purchased a set of Ping i3+ from a wonderful seller on eBay who kept them in Bristol new-like condition. I played Ping Eye2s for many years until the airline lost my golf bag a decade ago and have since bounced around 4 of the other major club manufactures (don’t want to share anything negative about them on the Forum). None of the other irons have given me the same pleasant feel of the old Ping Eye2s. Any feedback on your experience playing the i3+ would be great.
I went out a few years ago When I was playing my Ping Eye2 irons and took a few balata Titleists. I wanted to see if ball and club tech went hand in hand to see the improvements.
i had been using the eye2 irons but with prov1 balls. I wondered why I hit them shorter than I did with balata. I hit them side by side and off the eye2 irons balata was longer, spun more and had a lower launch angle and ball flight. Also angle of decent was good.
The pro v1 spun less, launched too high, had an overall higher flight and a steep decent angle. It all added up to lost distance.
Now the prov1 with a modern iron like my Ping ie-1 irons was much better than a balata with these irons. Gotta keep your ball and club tech together.
