Sergio to...Ping?


Recommended Posts

The way I read it was that Sergio was supposed to move to a Callaway ball at some point. His contract must have been setup that way while Stenson’s wasn’t because he told them he wouldn’t ever want to change. And Sergio was probably getting paid more to move to the ball.

I absolutely agree.

It is a really bad image for a sponsor to be related with a person that doesn't have a minimum of respect for the game, his peers or even himself.

After his last incident ruining the greens in Saudi Arabia, he should have been banned from the European Tour as an example... In the same event while 'killing' the sand of a bunker after a bad shot you could clearly hear him saying the worst things about caddies while his own brother was the one carrying his bag...

There are many videos in YouTube compiling 'sweeties' like spitting into the cup, throwing away his shoe or his clubs, insulting Tiger, bitching about Augusta conditions and many other unbelievable actions... It is weird to see the price that Tiger Woods paid for his marital sins and Sergio getting free passes for all the actions mentioned before.

I honestly believe golf players should be judged for their contribution to the game and their attitude and example on the course... If this was the case, Sergio would have lost his sponsors long time ago.

Have a great game.

Phil has been crooked off the tee for the most part his entire professional career whether it's been a Titleist or Callaway ball. His driver swing is more responsible for his poor performance off the tee than what ball he is using. Phil has been a Callaway staffer since late 2004. It's not their ball.

Ping makes perfect sense , play which ever ball he likes.

Chrome soft name needs to end and when they fix the balls come back as something else.

I’d bet Phil’s balls are hand picked. x rayed etc to talk him into playing them at this point. I doubt very seriously that Phil plays a ball that’s known to have a core so out of center that a whole dozen can be tested at anytime and found to have a wobbly roll or cut open to find the core well shifted to one side.

Sergio going back to TM won't yield him a lot of money and Ping won't either. At this point in his career he is either going to go back to old faithful TM because that is what he is accustomed to OR he will go Ping because their equipment truly fits his eye. I think Sergio should use a mixed bag and make his money on course through good play. I could see him having a solid 2020!

Caught that too. Ping driver, irons, wedges and putter so it must be TM fairway woods. Haven't seen enough to get a handle on his full bag.

Didnt fit his eyes? I have slanted eyes and all the clubs on tour looks awesome. Pay me the $$ and I will play it!! Well maybe not the old Cleveland VAS.

There have been a lot of articles about the fact that except for a few big names (Tiger, Phil, etc.) of multiple major winners, there's not as much money in equipment contracts as there once was. And it's not like Sergio is a newbie trying to scratch out a living on Tour, he probably set financially - so it's probably a wise move to have a mixed bag of what fits his eye and his game.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
