what a driver!
Just a quick ping g20 appreciation thread!

Went to get custom fit for a new driver today, after I fell out of love with my old Burner 2009 10.5 reg flex- had my heart set on either a Titleist 910 D2 or a Callaway RAZR fit, or even a Ping i20. I play off 12, Swing speed is about 105mph. Came away with a Ping G20 with the stiff tfc 169d shaft - 9.5 loft. All I can say how good does it fly - wasn't too high, in fact lower than the t**, callaway all the same lofts - and it just went like the clappers. and it's cheaper too. the face is soooo hot - and it controlled my slice.

If it's good enough for Bubba, and Hunter it's good enough for me!

Went to demo day to order the i20, but hit the G20 in a 9.5 with the Tour 169D stiff. OMG, I just hit bombs with it. It is so forgiving and long. It came in yesterday. A few hits on the range yesterday and I was ready to play with it today. I am a lefty, so the guys I play with were calling me Bubba. One of the best driving rounds I have had in a long time. This driver is for real. For he it's either straight or a gentle draw. If I miss it (usually I am a little late) is is a gentle fade. Looks like the Rapture is heading for the closet.

I actually just picked mine up yesterday..
As a long time TM guy I played in the NW Open Pro-Am last year (called the Wine Growers) I ordered my R11 9* from my TM rep & he met me up there with it..
I never even had the factory shaft installed & had 2 shafts tipped before I went..
The Grafalloy Bi-Matrix (pink) & a Matrix Code-6 in Candy Lime..
I hit it well.. not as consistant as my Tour Issue 09 Burner.. But was "ok" at best..
Bought that club Friday before our practice round.. Demo'd the G20 8.5* on Saturday with the Tour stiff.. & KNEW I MADE A BIG MISTAKE..
6 months later.. I finally gave up on the TM & made the switch..
With the factory shaft even.. This thing is BOMBING past my TM..
Can hit any shot on demand.. & even in the 8.5*.. my shots are high.. penetrating.. yet not ballooning.. they don't "fall out of the sky"..
I wouldn't mind throwing a little hotmelt in there, to deaden the sound a little.. But I am afraid to touch anything with the way it's hitting now..
I am a club ho by trade.. but this will be in the bag for a long time to come..
Unless the G25 is that much better..:-)
On another note.. I have read several people say the club is "ugly" or at best not as attractive as others on the market..
For me.. I never cared for the white club head, & was thinking about having it painted before I decided to get rid of it..
I think (for me) The G20 is a very good looking club at address, & every time I look down at it.. It gives me the confidance that this next ball is again going to go a long way..
I have hit many many drivers & clubs & this one is a keeper..
It has a comfortable home right next to my TEE CB2 16.5 4-wood with the Pink Bi-Matrix FW shaft.. (which I have been gaming for years.. before the pink shaft bandwagon)
For what its worth..
I play to a 3.8 hdcp

Glad to read all this....I currently play the original Rapture (was fit and bought it when they came out)....By far the best driver I've ever owned (partially due to the fact its the 1st driver I was ever fit for) but....

Going to a fitting on Tuesday to try the D2,D3, i20,g20, TM offerings....If one is better than what I got I'll be buying, g20 was the one I was targeting but who knows I had iron fitting 2weeks ago with i20's in mind but ended up ordering Ap1....

I just got fitted for the first time and came away with the G20 over the R11s and Cobra AMP (Those were the other two finalists that were recommended to me). I have a swing speed of 98-102 (152 mph avg. ball speed) and was getting a 254 yd avg carry, but I have a slow take away and really load the shaft on the downswing, so they recommended the 169D Tour X-stiff for me to tighten my shot dispersion. Just placed the order yesterday, and should be getting it in a week and a half. Can't wait!!!

+... I lost count

I love my G20!!! I hit everything in the PGA Superstore before picking the G20. I thought I would leave w/ the 910D2 or the Razr Fit, but boy was I wrong.

Played my first round with it today and it performed even better on the course.

[size="3"]Posted in all G20 topics as below[/size]

[size="3"]G20 is shorter than i20 not a great deal but it is shorter, fitted by Ping for the drivers[/size]

[size="3"]I20 Feels better than G20[/size]

[size="3"]But on fairway finding G20 is winner and that point will make it 1st choice over i20, the G20 hardly misses a fairway, never felt more confident standing on tee, Steve[/size]

After hitting my new G20 3-wood with TFC Tour shaft I had a thought "what if....what if I had this shaft in my driver?"

I am going to find out next week when it's delivered. :yahoo:

The TFC Tour is a great shaft. Contrary to what people usually encounter with stock offerings, it plays stiff to flex. As usual, the custom options list is really extensive if you're looking for something else.

I'm down to 44" and D2 swingweight on mine...confidence is back :partytime2:

you know all this love and hype remind of the G2 when it was first released...I can't remember what year that would have been....maybe around 2003 or 2004? But I remember a buddy getting it and I hit his and went and bought one the next day. At the time the main discussion board that I knew about was TGC and there was a thread there that must have been close to 100 pages about the G2 and how it was the greatest driver ever!!

Anyone remember what the head size was back then, had they reached the 460 limit at that point. The driver I had before that was the Wilson Deep Red and it was 365 and people used to call it a toaster on a stick when I had it. I guess the G20 is a convection oven on a stick by comparison :)
