Looks dodgy as hell and filled with grammatical errors. Nobody can offer free shipping worldwide on bulky items, they'll be taking a loss each time. Stay away.

Yep, all fake. Gmail or Hotmail addresses are one of the warning signs. This one has had both (Hotmail registry admin address). It is also a US based site pretending to be in the UK.

thanks fellows. This is a conversation i had with them on their live help : In conversation with Caroline Caroline 22:44:25 Hi! What can I do for you? Me 22:44:46 Hi Caroline, Caroline 22:44:58 Hi. Me 22:47:10 Earlier on I was about to process an order but first went to your live help which happened to be off-line. I noticed that the offline message was in poor/broken English. This begs the question : are you a legitimate UK company selling genuine Ping products ? Caroline 22:48:12 The clubs we sell are all from the OEM(original equipment manufacturer) factory. Me 22:49:18 are you a legitimate UK based company shipping from the UK ? Caroline 22:49:51 We are an legitimate UK based company. We ship from USA. Me 22:50:31 can you explain the poor English in your offline message ? Caroline 22:51:43 The message is generated by the system, we will fix that soon. Me 22:53:02 I'm not convinced but thanks for your time Caroline 22:53:16 You are welcome.

Hmmm I recently bought a set of 13 Golf Pride grips from Hong Kong
that were free shipping and they were genuine. Free shipping Isn’t always the sign. I only ever purchase through Pay Pal so if it turns sour they will reimburse you and I never spend more than I can afford to lose, just like gambling.

All our custom built clubs are made and dispatched from our Sydney warehouse. Please everyone try to stamp out the fakes.
