Really cool 15min-ish interview with Tony Finau talking about his new bag of Ping clubs:


Driver: Ping G400 MAX - he said he was hitting it 8-10yd longer than the G driver he was using before. Said he switched because Daniel Summerhays let him use his and he asked Ping for one. They said they had already sent him one 2 weeks ago. It was in his sons room. Carry distance at sea level is 300-305. Arizona is 312-315. 2200 to 2700 spin is his target range. He said his stock swing is around 75%. 85g X ACCRA shaft. Fairly even stiffness through the shaft.

Looks like he has a new bag now to replace that duct taped Nike bag now too

Ping has already made him a copy of his Piretti. It will be interesting to see what happens!

That will be interesting.  Front page says 11 club minimum deal- that's new for Ping isn't it?

Yes, it is. We just received confirmation hes going to continue to use our Matera model which is awesome!

That's an awesome putter.  Someone mentioned that Ping made a copy already, would be interesting to see.

That was me too. They even asked Piretti for one of their own grips for it...

Might as well just ask Piretti to engrave Ping on the back and give them a few hundred G400 Maxes in return

What are the odds an acquisition is in the future? That could potentially be super cool.

To me it just doesn't look right.  Any other company would work.  JMO.

Why/Why any other company?? What does that mean/on what basis?? When you think PING, what do you think, and why does that not marry to Tony?? Curious.

One of my favorite players...everything I have read tells me he is super nice down to earth guy.  Seems to fit perfect with Ping.  I look forward to trying the 400...I take lessons from Andrew Rice and he is all in on Ping staff.

Yep 11 club deal equals no ping putter and no ping wedge most likely.

Already stated he would be staying with piretti.  So must be fairway woods and /or hybrid then.

Pics from this week show some Ping wedges in his bag, of course could just be testing them out.

I think thats personally something Ping has always been very underrated for.  I love their wedges, the grinds are all very playable with tons of options (could still use options over 60*, but thats neither here nor there).

At his swing speed playing PING woods seems odd. They've never made the lowest spin heads. But I guess the contract $$$ must suffice haha.

he's not being paid by Ping...
