I hit the ball fairly low with my woods, so obviously I need more loft to get the ball at a proper launch angle. No problem for Ping, who shipped me a driver with a little more loft. Taking any new club out of the box is a holy experience, but this one driver is craftsmanship (funny little Ping tidbit: you know the "I" that scrolls vertically down their grips?ping G20 driver They actually align that with a laser to ensure every grip they put on your golf club is perfectly straight ... nice little touch I enjoyed, especially being a reminder guy).One of my first expensive drivers I had as a kid was a Ping, and while it was revolutionary at the time, it's fun to see the transformation a company like this has gone through from then to now. The G20 is just ... beautiful. No real other way to put it. The head is traditional, and it doesn't hurt knowing when you're pulling out a club that you are about to add 15 yards to your bag. Distance is still king, right?
The fun thing about my Ping trip was when my clubs came, they all came. The s56s irons, the Anser wedges, and more importantly, two G20 woods that were set up right for me.The driver jumped quickly into my new bag and I was excited to add some yards. I love the duller sounds of woods, that don't 'ding' so much, and the G20 does that (I have an iPod test, to see if I can still hear the sounds of woods obnoxiously while I'm listening to music, and I am happy to say that the G20 passed that test).Callaway X-24 HOT IronsThe playability behind the new driver is nice as well. You can move it if you want, which is nice for the lower handicaps, but it isn't made just for that. A higher handicap with a slower swing speed can still enjoy this club as much as the professional tossing it in his staff bag (my uncle is currently hitting a G20 and loves it).And while I've touched on it before, adding 10-15 yards with anything is a bonus, and if you can do it off the tee without having to really give it an extra WHOMP yourself, that helps.
