  1. Unfortunately, that one doesn't work. I'm trying to find the "corded" grip. Thanks though.
  2. I am trying to find a source for a few Ping 703 "Red" full cord grips (undersize) to go on a couple non-Ping clubs. I have tried internet searching, eBay, Amazon, etc. without any luck. I don't believe you can order straight from Ping and dont' know any local spots that installs grips that carries them. Does anyone know where I might be able to find them?
  3. My other consideration is a used Ping G15 hybrid. They run a little more but I do currently use Ping irons. I don't know if the G15s would be a better option since they may more closely match my current Ping irons in swing. I know they have an offset but so do the Eye2s. Looks aside, how are the G15 hybrids?
  4. I am new to the sport and just beginning to learn. I currently have a few inherited clubs and have been reading up on hybrids since they did not exist last time I swung a club 25+ years ago. I'm sure my better option is to wait a while and work into it, but I would like to pick up a few hybrids to throw in the bag to get started with. I have found some good deals on the Cleveland Mashie (and Mashie plus) for $30 - 50 each and wandered what everyone thought about them as a beginner hybrid. I know they aren't a Titleist but are they appropriate for a first time ball striker? How do they work from the rough and/or tee? Are these played and struck just like irons as far as striking down and not up on the ball? Thanks for any insight.
  5. I just got back into the game after a very long break. Right now I am just going with the basics and will attempt the driver later on once the irons are worked out.
  6. Why is that so many of us have such a problem hitting the driver? You would think it would be the easiest to strike well because of the massive size of modern drivers. They should have the largest sweet spot and your ball always has a perfect lie (on a tee). Does the low loft create all the issues?
  7. Does it really matter? It's only eye candy on television. It's not like I'm trying to get a date and will never find out first hand. Doesn't matter to me.
  8. My golf fear...being "that guy." Too bad, too slow, lost too many balls, etc.
  9. I'm new to the sport but figured I probably needed all the help I could get. Just ran across a deal for a pair of FJ Greenjoys for $39.99 shipped from Dicks. Figured they couldn't hurt.
  10. A set (4 - PW) of Ping 703 full cord grips and one SuperStroke for the putter. Can't wait to try them out.
  11. I am getting around to cleaning/refurbishing my inherited Eye2's and need some help. I know at some point in time they have been cut on. According to Ping, the set was a +1/4" but I don't think that is true anymore. I have removed some of the grips and found the end of the shafts are no where near cut square. I compared them to another family member's standard black dot and they seem to be almost identical in length. I think someone cut off the extra 1/4" on all the clubs but the 7 iron. It is definitely longer than the other black dot 7 iron. Here is my question. I found the original black dot lengths for all irons and want to check/cut mine back to those specs (or at least get a square cut end). The 7 iron is listed as 36.75" but I don't know exactly what length that is. Trying to measure to the "sole" seems a little difficult without a device of some sort. Does anyone know what the correct length would be from the end of the shaft to the point where it is inserted into the club head? Seems that would be the easiest but not sure that is possible due to different lies. Can anyone help?
  12. Looks like I have a third option that I'm going with. I called Ping and was informed they no longer have any SW molds left for the Eye2s. I was speaking to my brother-in-law who stated he had a complete set (GW, SW, LW) from another family member that was never used and offered them to me. Since I am trying to get started without breaking the bank right now (and since I probably can't tell the difference) I took him up on his offer. I will now have the Eye2 PW and will add in the SW and LW. That will give me a 50.5*, 56* and 60*. I believe he stated they were Warrior Custom Golf clubs but I have never heard of them. I'm sure their not the best since he is basically throwing them out. Hopefully they are good enough to learn on. Anyone have any experience with them?
  13. Just inherited a set of Ping Eye2s but the SW is missing. I am just starting out and trying to learn so I don't know which way to go. Should I contact Ping and inquire about a replacement SW to complete the set again or just pick up a modern day SW (like Vokey or any other)? What would you'll do?
  14. Any way to figure out which one of these I have? The band is badly worn but I can make out "EZ-Lite" on a few of them. I was told the factory original shaft was a NZ+. Would the swing weight code (B9) give any indication? Does the first group above show the US Patent D276644 on the club or just "Patent Pending"? Sorry for all the questions.
  15. I have decided to try and pick up the game again (at the age of 36) after not swinging a club in over 20 years. I never really was any good years ago and more or less played for fun with family and on vacations. My grandfather was an avid golfer and I remember when I was very young going out with him while he played. He recently passed away and I was given his clubs (that I secretly wanted but never mentioned). All I remembered about them were that they were Ping Eye2s. I found the serial number on the matching irons and sent that to Ping for their specs. The following is what I received back: Serial Number:xxx76 Model:EYE2 Club(s):1-9PWSW Color Code:BLACK Swing Weight:B9 Shaft:NZ+ Length:STD Grip:D-B/W Status:STAMPED Manufacturing Date:2/23/1985 I was able to determine by looking at the actual clubs that they are black dots with a "red color banded" EZ Lite shaft. I have not been able to find any information online about that shaft. Apparently they should have come with a NZ+ shaft. The head does have the Patent Pending mark with KARSTEN PHOENIX AZ 85068 U.S.A. right-side-up on back of top rail. Can anyone provide specifics on exactly what these clubs are (V groove, U groove, Lite version, etc.) and what the shafts are? I have no idea what the swing weight and grip is referring to. The set is also missing the 1 Iron and the SW. Is it possible to order replacements from Ping as I have seen somewhere (can't find now) or are these clubs just too old? Thanks so much for shining any light on what I have in my bag.
