Mike

Pittsburgh, PA

Wedge play from 110 is definitely my strength. Weakness would be spin control

52 SS, 56 SS, 60 ES is recommended.

 

Never owned a ping wedge, but curious to try them out.

 

​Thanks for the opportunity

Matt Craze, New York, 11101

Handicap: 4.6 

Strengths: traditionally good short-game player from teenage golf years, although has declined with time with less practice. Originally from the UK, I grew up playing bump-and-run on a links golf course. 

Weakness: I currently play Ping Gorge wedges -- I decided to switch to a 2-wedge system -- 52 and 58 degrees. However, I would like to experiment with 52, 56, and 60, which offer a little more flexibility on tight tree lined courses and small green complexes so typical of NY state. I also discovered through taking the Ping measurement system that I should be a blue dot player, whereas I have always played black dot. I plan to transition to blue dot irons once I find the budget for it! But this would be great moment to experiment with blue dot system. I would also like to experiment with the ES (eye sole) bounce. I also use Ping Gold 1/32" oversize grips on all my clubs.

Desired test: Blue dot, ES, Gold grip 1/32" (52, 56, 60) 

 

Current clubs: 

Ping G Driver, 9 degree loft, stiff shaft 

Ping i25 3 Wood, 15*, stiff shaft 

Ping Rapture driving iron, black dot, stiff shaft

Ping S56 3-PW black dot 

Ping Gorge wedges, wedge flex, 52" 58" 

Seemore FGP putter (I also have a Ping 65 Cadence, I go between the 2 but want to put a thick grip on the B65 to have an apples-to-apples comparison)

My short game weakness is short chip shots and 30-40 pitch shots.  Making consistent contact on less than full shots. 

 

My three wedge set would include a 50 degree, 54 degree, and 58 degree.  My Pings are black dot with 2 wraps in the midsize grips.  Irons have Project Xi 6.0 shafts.

As much as I love wedges I don't think I could put in the effort needed to review. Good luck to all and thanks MGS!

Very good on firm surfaces (practiced off black top during lunch at work and played Muni's as a kid). Weakness is bunkers at my handicap level. Not a lot of time or facilities to practice but can usually get within 10-15 feet every time.


 


Ping Glide 2.0 50/SS, 54/ES. 58/TS, Graphite S80 shaft, any grip (Pure Mid size will be installed minutes after receiving them)


 


​Have always played Ping irons but not wedges, Vokey's currently in the bag.
