  1. As stated, I am looking for clubs fora teen. He's 17 with a smaller build...roughly average height but smaller frame. I prefer nothing stiffer than stiff flex for him. I've been able to buy some clubs for some other teens in the past (members of my church youth group) and have passed along some of my stuff as well. My budget is very, very small for this right now (job uncertainty). I would prefer cavity back irons that aren't super old (not looking for blades from the 1970's or early 80's) but I understand I can't be too choosy. I've tried to do this very quietly in the past but two of the kids told their friends, who in turn asked me to try and get something for them as well. Thank you for any replies. Have a good holiday.

  3. I'm in the same boat. I had a Ping G400 LST ad up. A person paid and then backed out of the sale before I shipped. Can I relist the ad immediately or do I need to wait to relist it?
  4. Ping G400 LST head in 8.5 I highly doubt you will find one in better condition. Used less than 5 rounds. I normally would put excellent condition but I see others using "mint" for used items. If those qualify as mint, this defintely does as it looks almost brand new. SOLD No dents, gouges, scrapes, etc. Crown is super clean. The spot in the second photo is a reflection on the sole. Comes with headcover.
  5. You will see more of their players switch starting next season. PEI_Golfer is right...Ping doesn't get all bent out of shape when their tour pros choose to use older models. Bubba Watson will not switch because he likes the workability of the s55 irons vs other models. He said this before very clearly. I also remember reading a story about him on a range with some other folks who asked why he wouldn't switch irons. He picked up a newer iron and hit a 30 yard draw. He said it wasn't enough and picked up his irons (I don't recall if he was playing s59's still or had moved to the s55) and hit a 40 yard draw.
  6. The video (in 3 parts) on YT of Booker T trying to get the Undertaker to do a spinarooni is great (it also includes the Rock, Triple H, Goldust, and Vince McMahon doing their versions). If you search Undertaker spinarooni it will come up. There is also a very heavily cut 9 minute version of the video. It was recorded after a Raw taping. To the OP...it is also cool he is getting his kids involved in the game. I frequently tell kids (my own, kids in the youth group at church where I volunteer, etc) that it's wise to invest time in activities like music, golf, and bowling. You can do them your entire life and don't have to be good at them to enjoy them.
  7. Cool to see. I was never a huge Booker T fan...never disliked him either. His WCW series with Benoit was great and I loved his supermarket brawl with Austin. It's a shame WWE didn't use him better at the start of his WWE run (don't get me started on how terrible they botched the Invasion angle). He should have gone over Triple H at Wrestlemania 19. This is one of those weird topics I always wondered about (wrestlers and golf). Considering the road schedules guys have (and especially in the past when they were on the road almost every day), it seems unlikely many would have had time to get a round of golf in while in a city. For that reason, I wonder how many ever played the game with any regularity. Some wrestlers sometimes say they like long hair because it accentuates movement in the ring (Jericho, Shawn Michaels, Triple H among those who have said this). I have wondered if it ever gets in the way of a golf swing. Obviously Kyle Berkshire dispels this notion. Ona side note, I never realized how big Booker T's hands look until I saw this video (his hand with the glove on it really shows this).
  8. I know it's a long shot...looking for a Citizen ecosphere golf watch in good condition or better.
  9. Puttout is great. I have a leather Srixon executive golf cup I found at my local Dunham's Sporting Goods once for $5. I figured the price was mismarked (they only had one) and picked it up immediately. It probably came with a ball order they placed.
  10. The other great thing about the Ping fitting chart was that the company always stated it was a starting point only and you should take the results to a certified Ping fitter to fine tune the results prior to ordering the clubs. The chart itself was incredibly accurate in most cases. However, the fitter was/is able to account for swing characteristics and other information. For years the clubs could only be ordered through green grass accounts and some retailers like Golfsmith and Edwin Watts. The first time I saw Ping clubs in a Dicks Sporting Goods, I did a double take.
  11. 1. City, State? Emlenton, PA 2. Handicap? do not have an official handicap 3. Current Irons? Ping iblade 4. How would the Launcher XL Halo irons help your game? The forgiving wide sole would be great to prevent digging, especially in the long irons
  12. The shipping tracking number is on the company you ordered from to give to you (Ping will send it to them ), not on Ping.
  13. Ping's number is 800-474-6434. they will not give you tracking info/order information unless you are the purchaser (Ping does not sell direct. You have to order the clubs through an authorized retailer. So, the retailer is the purchaser, not you). That said, PING cs is great.
  14. I listened to the podcast. Adam was right on this one, albeit a little condescending and rude, IMHO. My fitting was in 2003 at a place called The Perfect Swing (it is a driving range and golf school). It was an outdoor fitting that took about an hour (he scheduled me on a night when the range wasn't busy and he didn't have lessons scheduled). The PGA Pro was in his mid-60's and knew his stuff It started with me filling out a sheet of my preferences (ball flight, what clubs I liked to hit best, what clubs I liked to hit least, etc.). He measured my wrist to floor and found clubs that were comparable in length to what I would need and took me outside. He had me hit my clubs first (Ping Zings, orange dot, Ping DGS shafts= to DG s400, standard length), going through the bag 3-5-7-9. Then he had me hit the 2 clubs I liked to hit the most and the 2 I liked to hit the least (I accidentally killed a bird in mid flight with a PW during the fitting). After the outdoor session, he took me inside the building (a converted barn) and took some info from the range session. He gave me 12 balls and told me to hit each one into the net while he went downstairs. He had something set up down there and came upstairs with more information (I think the mat was connected to a computer--I'm still not real sure what he was doing). He had me assume a hitting stance and measured me for length (hypotenuse) and checked me for grip size. Then he printed out some order info to send to his rep and gave me a copy (which I no longer have). He had my swingspeed, what the weight of each head should be in grams, swingweight, appropriate shaft, grip size, swingweight, etc. I came out to 2 degrees upright (green dot in Ping-- one degree upright in most other OEM's at the time), +1/2" in length, DG X100 shafts. I had my clubs in 3 weeks. The fitting cost $35 but he took it off the price of the clubs I was ordering. If I ordered from somewhere else, the fee would have been $35. I had to pay for the fitting and half for the clubs upfront. The place later lost its Ping account for offering 10% (it may have been 5%) discounts across the board on new clubs. He was brand agnostic but I told him I was ordering Ping i3+ before the fitting started (At the end of the fitting, he was going to put me in i3+ blades, but I told him I preferred the regular i3+). When I mentioned Ping, he said there were other options but if I was insistent on Ping he would sell them to me ( He said, "I encourage people to have an open mind, but if you want the Pings that is up to you. They make great clubs.").
