Is it just my eyes or do most of the Ping G25 drivers and 3W look really closed to everyone else?

All the ones I picked up or demoed seemed to have a nice open face angle which I loved. My luck, the one I ordered came very square if slightly closed, which I am not to happy about. Definitely not as confident with this one as I was with the demo.

My G25 driver was visually open, and most I have seen have been square to open at address.

My experience was with a driver btw. The demo I used looked quite open to me. It gave me tthe confidence to step up put an aggresive swing on it and pipe it doen the middle, And thats basically what I did with it. the driver I have now is not anything like the one I demoed. I even stuffed a TS 6.2 speeder in it and it still is going left way way to often. On the fence at the moment.

Have been thnking of possible trade with another 8.5 that looks much more open from someone on here. maybe they are missing right and want the more neutral look.

Seems like most are saying theirs are at least square or a little open. The one I demoed certainly was neither, and I ordered a G25 3W and it looks closed as heck to me.

My driver is open as all get out to the point I'm playing in the + position to help with face angle.  Never thought I'd say it but I wish it were closed more.  Most anti left driver I've owned and I once owned a tp superfast 2.0 off the van cranked about 4 degrees open

There is a fairly large variance between Ping driver and fairway heads. Next time your at your local golf shop take 3-5 identical clubs (say 15* 3 woods) and compare and you will see a bit of a difference between them. Some sit square, some closed, some open. If you're going to order one from Ping just add "0.5* Open - Digital Loft and Lie" and they will pick a head out that matches those specs. Theoretically you could order it more open, closed, whatever and you will get what you want. I've ordered my G25 driver, fairway, and hybrid all this way and they all sit absolutely perfect to my eye. It's the only way to ensure that you will get what you want.

On my last order it only cost $6 to get the digital loft and lie. Do it.

I think that the fairways and hybrids sit square.  My 9.5* driver sits open.  I have it in the closed (+) position, and I have to square it a bit (close it a bit) at address.

My driver misses are to the right when I make a bad swing, and straight when I nut it.  I rarely miss it left.

Are the fairways anywhere near as good as the driver?


I'm VERY tempted to buy a fairway because the driver has been simply ridiculous for me.

I made the lateral switch from a G20 4-wood to G25 4-wood and honestly I think it is an improvement for me. The G20 had "Soft-R" shaft and G25 has "R" so maybe that is the difference maker. But my G25 4-wood has a bias in favor of going straight!

G25 driver definitely sits open. That was actually the initial reason I switched from the Anser, which has a sole design that simply will not sit open. If you duck hook the ball it's a mental nightmare.

As for the fairway, definitely sits square to open.  My G25 4w sits pretty much square.

Goose.....any feedback on your VTS silver setup with the 4 wood?  Are you able to make any comparison to the Stock Ping Tour shaft?

No feedback, really.  I played THE worst golf of the season on Saturday, and it's not fair to the club to make an honest assessment. I can report that it's pretty forgiving on shots off the outer rim of the toe.
