Hank Haney, PGA
@HankDHaney   Different top lines for one RT @baldjoe: the R11 irons look alot like the cb's except for red weight. What's the difference in them?

@HankDHaney   50, 54, 58 or 50, 56 RT @rapalanlord: @HankDHaney new PW is 45 degrees. Have 52 and 56 already. Add 48 bad idea?

@HankDHaney   Yes and an adjustable one RT @drunkenkyle: nasty slice. I'm 6'7'' longer driver????

@HankDHaney   Let the pro advise u RT @TKGator7: @HankDHaney Clubs 11 yr old knockoffs but starting first real lessons so should I wait to get new set?

@HankDHaney   The shafts r steel they look graphite RT @ArabKnight72:How come only Stricker, that I know of, is playing with graphites on his irons?

@HankDHaney   Yes RT @PHParton: driver is my worst club, slice it. every club is stiff shaft but my driver (regular), could this be part of the problem?

Hank Haney, PGA
@HankDHaney   Not much RT @shaunylw: how do you feel about playing a ball for more than 18 holes? Prov1 36 holes on it, am I losing anything doing so?

@HankDHaney   Depends on your swing RT @Alan_Tolman: @HankDHaney my clubs that I use are 10yrs old ping isi. How much am I losing not playing newer clubs

@HankDHaney   Both great RT @MGCary12:I have both the R11 and Superfast 3Woods...which is better for a single digit handicap? personal preference?

@HankDHaney   Get fitted and demo RT @dtlang: @HankDHaney - looking to buy some new irons - your thoughts on how to select best set?

@HankDHaney   I like that RT @toddy080: @HankDHaney , at the moment I use 50, 56 & 60, I never use my 60. I want new wedges, could 52& 58 work? Thnx.

Ping Golf
@PingTour   The Anser Wedge was designed to accompany our current line of Anser Forged irons, which are made of soft 8620 steel.

@PingTour   This Anser wedge features a reinforced cavity design and stabilizing bar. bit.ly/qNySB5

@PingTour   The versatile sole design allows for the golfer to play a variety of shots from almost any lie bit.ly/oSgpYL

@PingTour   Carried over from the Anser Forged Iron you’ll find a tungsten toe weight, which helps optimize the MOI. bit.ly/mWuf61

@PingTour   The longer hosel design counterbalances the toe weight, pulls the CG forward and helps provide a more penetrating trajectory.

@PingTour   The Anser wedge will be offered stock with the DG Spinner shaft and in 50°, 52°, 54°, 56°, 58° and 60°.

@PingTour   A new feature to our G20 iron is the multi-material badge found in the back cavity of the iron. bit.ly/r4Frqx

@PingTour   Our G20 iron can benefit any type of golfer regardless of their handicap. bit.ly/ortXWn

@PingTour   Our multi-material badge helps provide a solid feel and sound while enhancing distance control.

@PingTour   Our G20 irons have been custom engineered to provide you with very consistent distance gapping throughout the entire set.

@PingTour   When designing the G20 driver we decided to use a new titanium (Ti 8-1-1), which has a higher strength to weight ratio.

@PingTour   The G20 driver will feature a slightly larger head profile and a higher MOI for increased forgiveness. bit.ly/nVIkOS

@PingTour   An aerodynamic head shape is important. But it’s only one part of our balanced approach when we designed the G20 Driver

@PingTour   Although some drivers are trending towards the premise that lighter is better, you won’t find this trend continuing with G20.

@PingTour   Through research we’ve solidified a different design philosophy that can yield higher ball speeds & a tighter dispersion pattern.
