60 year old Ping 2-iron hits the GolfWRX Classifieds (with $600 asking price)

Published

At GolfWRX, we love golf, plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment of the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball. It even allows us to share another thing, including equipment or, in this rare case, classic equipment.

Currently, in our GolfWRX buy/sell/trade (BST) forum, there is a listing for an extremely rare Ping 69 Ballnamic 2-iron.

This is the very first iron set produced by Karsten Solheim/Ping and only a very limited number of sets were ever produced. They were manufactured from blank GolfCraft heads and were milled out to create perimeter weighting. As they say the rest is history!

To see all the pictures and for the price check out the full listing here: Ping 2 iron, $600

This is the most impressive current listing from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

    What’s the loft on that 2 iron? Probably more loft than some modern 4 irons.

Three Swing Challenge: Testing the Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond Max driver

Published

on

Callaway recently released the Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond Max Driver, and BK is ready to see where it stacks up in this week’s Three Swing Challenge!

Why three swings?

Many years ago, the legendary Barney Adams, founder of Adams Golf told us this:

“My formula as a fitter was three shots only. I discounted No. 1 just because it was the first one, counted 100 percent of No. 2 and discounted No. 3 because the player was starting to adjust.”

Read more about the Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond Max driver in our launch piece.

Adam Scott switches into Titleist GT2 driver at Pinehurst

Published

on

Editor’s note: This is an excerpt of an article our Andrew Tursky filed for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report. Read the full piece here.

As for the driver, Scott started the year off bouncing between a Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond and a TaylorMade Qi10 driver, before settling into the TaylorMade setup for most of 2024. It seemed that Scott had found his driver, which was equipped with a Fujikura Ventus TR Blue 6X shaft – and that’s what he used up until last week at the RBC Canadian Open.

This week at the 2024 U.S. Open, however, a new driver entered into the conversation: Titleist’s new GT2 model, which was first introduced to PGA TOUR players at the Memorial Tournament presented by Workday, and remains unreleased to the public.

Scott being the prolific tester that he is, of course he would test out an all-new driver!

After picking up about 2 mph of ball speed during testing with the GT2 head, GolfWRX.com confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that Scott plans to use the GT2 come competition time on Thursday.

Scott is joining a slew of other players who have switched into the GT2 model – a list that includes Patrick Cantlay, Wyndham Clark, Will Zalatoris, and standout amateur Gordon Sargent.
