I am thinking of investing in a set of these come spring. I've done some research and have talked to my local pro, whom I will be ordering and fitted with. Just looking for opinions, feedback or advice from anyone willing to share.

Thanks!

Welcome aboard Faith!

My partner plays Pings and loves them, I think getting advice from your pro (who must be familiar with your game) is a good idea.

btw, I see you are from Connecticut (I live in Old Lyme) where do you usually play?

Greetings!

I'm in Farmington and play mostly at Westwoods. I will probably play Tunxis Plantation a couple times this season too. I'm a standby on an unofficial league at the office and that's where they play.

I've only heard good things about Pings, and I want this to be a lifetime investment. The pro definitely knows my swing, i take lessons with him. He said they were a good choice as well.

Right now, my biggest obstacle is finding a set of these clubs to actually handle and try out before I purchase. Jim (my pro) recommended I try Golf Quest. I am hoping they have a decent Ladies selection.

Ping make nice clubs.
If you check in the bags of LPGA players, most have either Callaway X-14, or Ping i3-OSize.
You can check it right here

My brother bought a set of G2 last year. I tried it, the feeling is nice and soft, but since I'm more of a blade player, I didn't like those clubs because of the bigger clubface and wide sole. Ended up selling the clubs.
Important thing is to find a club that is comfortable for you, forgiving, and of course, custom fitted.

And... Welcome to the board Golfer Girl. :)

Westwoods....I'm not familiar with it.
I grew up in Simsbury so I have played Tunxis, The old Canton course, Bel Compo which is now blue fox run, Simsbury Farms and we used to sneak on Avon CC. ;)

If you are up for a trip, take a ride to the Golfsmith store in Norwalk, they have shed loads of clubs you can hit on their simulator......there is a golfer's warehouse somewhere up there that probably does the same thing.

This is gonna turn ugly for me, but anyways....

Last fall, a friend of mine was looking into a new set of irons. We hit everything in the place, Taylor Made, Callaway, Ping, you name it.

While he and the shop "guru" were off looking at other selections, I just hit balls to kill time. I noticed a set of G2's sitting near the net, so i grabbed one. I saw that it was standard length and lie, but it felt like it was 2" too short. I flipped it over to see that it was in fact the ladies version.

Let me tell you, those clubs are sweet. It reminded me of the first time I hit a set of Big Berthas. Coming off the face, the ball feels like you're hitting an orange. You can almost tell how many dimples touched the face.

The funny thing is, I then tried out the G2 Men's version and didn't get the same response. They felt "old" and unresponsive.

I personally give the G2L's two thumbs up for feel. Ping has always made good products when it comes to irons. I had a set of Zing 2's for about 3 months before I sold them. (Jumped on the Callaway bus, never got off!)

Go out and give them a go. They really are a great set.

Oh, and Master, please stop trying to get me into trouble! ;)

Cheers GG, and welcome aboard. Chime in on the discussion board whenever you can!

Just wait til you're dreaming about it...daydreaming about it...talking about it on the internet all day...reading about it all day...watching the golf channel all the time (except when Alias and The OC are on)...skipping class to go golfing...practicing at least an hour or two a day...etc

Good stuff!

Yeah, i have all the warning signs. I've got a little desk calendar at work, each day is a different golf course. Makes me salivate. I just can't wait for spring. I hate winter. I need to get my butt down in the carolinas I think before too long.
