The PING G25 DRIVER
The Hosel design, using lightweight titanium screw and hosel sleeve optimize this driver. The design maintains the same outer diameter and mass as PING’s traditional fixed hosels. Therefore, provides not only the benefits of adjustability (±1/2°) but also without sacrificing the performance often lost in clubs with larger, bulkier hosel designs.
Has a deeper profile than the G20 (.140” deeper) helps position the CG lower and farther back than any PING driver to date. It is PING’s largest-profile, most forgiving, highest-launching driver available. Thinner crown sections in the Ti 8-1-1 head allow weight re-distribution to further optimize the CG position. Structural reinforcements in the crown, sole and skirt ensure durability and provide a solid feel and sound. With a larger face than the G20, the G25 offers greater forgiveness across the entire face. The variable-thickness face delivers a powerful energy transfer for faster ball speeds and greater distances.
The Ryder Cup Wikipedia
In 1921, the Ryder Cup for the first time is played between the men’s professionals of Great Britain and the USA at Gleneagles. Great Britain won.
The Ryder Cup is contested in a match play format, which involves different methods of the format. A match is contested with two members from each team playing alternate shots. A match consists of two players from either team, who each play their own shot throughout the round.
The player that completes the hole in the lowest number of shots wins the hole. Singles matches are also played, with players from each team contesting a one-on-one match. The winner of each match scores a point for their team, if a match is tied after 18 holes then each team is awarded a ½ point. The format of the competition has changed throughout its history. Originally, foursome matches were played one day, with singles matches over 36 holes the next.
Since 1979, the format has consisted of 28 matches held over three days, with each match worth a point. The first two days consist of eight matches; four foursomes and four fourball matches. The final day sees all 12 members of each team competing in singles matches.
The United States are the most successful team in the history of the competition; they have won 26 of the 41 matches that have been contested, 18 of which were before 1979, when the competition was contested between Great Britain and Ireland and the United States. In the 19 matches since the inclusion of European golfers, Europe has won ten, the United States eight, with one match tied.
In 1946, The US Women’s Open was played for the first time at Spokane Country Club in Washington and won by Patty Berg of the USA. It was the first edition of the U.S. Women’s Open, and only one to have been played in match play competition. The field with 39 women was reduced to 32-player match play field by a 36-hole qualifier on Monday and Tuesday.
Professionals Patty Berg and Betty Jameson reached the Sunday final. Jameson led by three after seven holes, but Berg evened the match and they finished the first 18 holes all square. After lunch, Berg needed only fourteen holes in the afternoon to close out the match at 5 and 4. Berg won $5,600 and Jameson $3,100, all in war bonds.
This win was later recognized as Berg’s sixth major championship. The winner’s share at the U.S. Women’s Open was substantially less in succeeding years and was not exceeded until 1972, 26 years later.
Jameson won the title the following year as a 72-hole stroke play event.
