Want a Lower Spinning PING G30? Done.

PING has just announced a new member of the G30 family. Meet the G30 LS Tec. Would this have been from any other company in golf we’d probably be hearing some bold statements about more yards…how it’s longer and faster than what was released just a few months ago, and how it’s most definitely the ideal driver for anyone who wants more distance, but alas, that’s not how PING rolls.

Instead, we’re going to have to rely on technical details to help us get to the bottom of why the G30 LS Tec exists. [READ MORE]

First Look: PING Cadence TR Putters

There are days when the quote above sounds like the first five holes of my round. I laughed when I first heard the term “Army Golf” being used to describe alternating shots from the left and the right sides of the hole. It was welcome levity, distracting me from my abysmal ball striking that day.

Off the golf course, that military chant, and it’s ilk, are used to keep the troops in sync as they march. The soldiers rhythm of step quickly matches the rhythm of the sergeant’s call. The seargant’s cadence keeping his troop’s pace consistent and uniform.

Consistency is something that many of us strive for with our golf games. I know that I have told more than one instructor that consistent ball striking is one of my goals. Improved consistency should lead to lower scores, regardless of the ball trajectory. If I know that I’m are always going to hit a vigorous fade, I can aim and play accordingly. [READ MORE]

PING’s Glide Wedge is Totally Hydrophobic

I suppose that as far as wedge stories go, there’s a bit more to the tale of the PING Glide wedge than most. That said, I will concede that much of what I’ll discuss here today is, in one form or another, common to nearly every new wedge narrative.

For this new model, PING wanted to take a fresh look at everything that goes into a wedge. So as you might expect, we’re going to talk about tour player feedback, refined shapes, new materials, sole designs, and of course, new grooves, but the most compelling part of the Glide wedge’s story starts in a most unusual place.

RESTRICTED

Yeah.

Probably the first time you’ve ever seen that kind of sign on any magazine related to golf.

Read it carefully. It’s not a joke.

We believe in the truth. It’s simple. It’s black and white. I like black and white. Bob, well, he does too.

And, if you’re going to capture the true essence of and tell the true story of Bob, well it’s going to have to come with some warning signs (earmuff time, don’t say I didn’t tell you so). I’m referring to Bob Parsons, founder of GoDaddy and owner of the new Parsons Xtreme Golf company. And if you care about golf, you might want to read on.

Just Arrived – 2015 Bridgestone J715 460 Driver

Earlier this week, Bridgestone Golf’s J15 460 Driver became a reality in the USA. As you may recall, we covered most of the J15 lineup when details emerged on Bridgestone Golf’s Japanese website several months ago.

Before we get to the meat of why you might want to give the J15 a look, I’ll spare you any suspense and confirm that the J15 will be included in MyGolfSpy’s 2015 Most Wanted Driver test. Testing, by the way, begins next Monday (1/12/2015).

As much as we like to praise Bridgestone for its controlled release cycles (it’s been 4 years since the J40), like anyone else, the company still relies on some clever marketing to describe its technologies.

Let’s take a look at them. [READ MORE]
