More PING Fun
You may recall my topic from earlier in the year where it took PING three tries to correctly build a set of custom ordered irons, two tries to correctly build a set of custom ordered wedges, and three tries to correctly build a custom ordered single iron.
Then you may recall where it seems (speculative, but confident) that PING intervened to halt the sale/my purchase of a PING Prime Tyne putter.
Now last week I sent to PING a set of new old stock S59 irons 2-P, to be re-shafted/re-gripped, lies changed from blue dot to black dot (one degree), and bent half a club strong. Total cost of around $760 including shipping both ways. PING called me Friday (while I was golfing with an all PING set, no less) to advise me that they broke the S59 7 iron and stress fractured the S59 5 and 6 irons. They could return to me the irons with the job now “complete” or I could pay $612 for three replacement S59 irons. There is more here with more to follow, but just phenomenal. Thanks PING.
