Wangph, I've edited your post to cut out Lee's entire message including videos. No need to waste bandwidth, also redundant.

Hope you don't mind.

This hole happens to have many videos of many different players in the same tournament, so it's highly useful to compare different swing styles and the resulting ball trajectories.

Here is a clearer example of a draw, same hole, Tiger Woods.



Look at how fast Tiger's hands are rolling over through impact.

Also look at where the shaft enters and exits the body in the downswing and followthrough.

The ball starts right, and I believe I can see it starting to draw a bit before the video ends.

Although the camera angles are not ideal, the difference in this video is clearer.

My apologies for taking the thread so far out of topic.

ok, maybe i need to add mine now, my was bent abit too upright for my liking, i did went back and same thing they say it's correct he is the certified fitter blah blah blah. Ok that guy left thank god!

I also consulted the distri of Ping singapore, they ask me to play first, maybe i suck cannot hit properly that's why they think even if i fit correctly the swing might change when i get better.

But the other owner of the shop is better, i wanted to go back and refit, but just don have the time to do it but some other owners are better, they asked me bring in anytime.

But, why cannot get it right the first time? WHY!!!!! SO TROUBLESOME!!!

BTW, i was fitted Silver dot which is SUPER UPRIGHT!!!! my god.............+3.75"!!!!

What the heck is going on with the Ping fitting scene in Singapore?

Hi hoppie, maybe you should "use first" for some weeks and give it a try, if you still have problems call Wingolf and get an appointment with them for a re-fit session. When Winston (the previous Ping distributor) was still around, they definitely ask you to play first and later "tweak" the set accordingly, hopefully this service is still available, honestly Wingolf should take care of Ping owners.

The problem is we paid 30% more in spore to get a ping set
Cos we want it to be fitted correctly.
And if the 1st fitting is incorrect, maybe due to the Golfer's swing.
We have to pay again to readjust it.

Might as well buy from USA at 30% less.
And use the 30% money save and pay for multiple readjustment.

Example
I paid $1850 in spore for 10 PC Ping G15 .
If buy from USA it cost $1200 + shipping $100 = $1300.
and u save $550.

Bending of each irons is $6. 10pc iron = $60
so with $550 saved u can bend at least 9 times.

If buy in spore at $1850, the shop that sold me told
Me have to $60 for rebending.
Only after I call n complain to the distributor
Then I am given 1 free adjustment .

Morgan,
The above is true but you also have to factor the cost of fitting service....assuming that the person is a good enough fitter and do it properly...

[quote="morganoh"]3 weeks ago, I went to a shop and wanted to buy a pair of Sync G shoes.
Shop owner A attend to me and measure my foot , and told me that they have to order my size.

5days later the shoe arrive and I went to try the shoes,
Owner A was not there , so sale staff show me the SyncG and the shoe does not fit.
He said that he would need to change it with FootJoy and got to wait for few more days.
And so I told him that I would have to consider. cos its just too troublesome .

What if the exchanged shoes does not fit too.
Buying a pair of shoes may take more than 2-3 weeks.

and so I left the shop and practice my golf outside the shop.
5mins later , Owner B walk to me furiously told me if I'm not serious to buy the FootJoy dont buy from them.
he also said they paid cash for the shoes and now that I do not want it. and HE WALK AWAY before I even speak up.

1st I wanted to buy the FootJoy, but they do not have my size, they order it and paid for it.
Is it my problem? cos they did not tell me that.

When someone buy a Pants, Shirt, Shoes , of cos they would want to try out different size just to make sure.

Would u go to a shop, and the owner tells u they dont have your size , ask u to come back 5 days later to try.
and if it does not fit, u have to come back 4 days later again cos they have to do a 1 for 1 swop.

------------------------------

I recently bought another pair of FootJOy, this time with Golf Direct.
They let me try out size 9, 9.5, 10 and tell me to take my time trying them.
After 10mins of trying I decided on the size and bought it.
This should be the correct way.
