PING Glide 2.0 Wedges

 

 

Can PING's new wedges change your short game?

 

For most golfers, the search for a new short game begins and ends with Vokey, Cleveland or Callaway – the Holy Trinity of Wedges.

 

PING feels its new Glide 2.0 wedges should be part of that conversation, thanks to new sole grinds, improved groove technology and spin-preserving hydrophobicity (look it up). Add a host of no-upcharge shaft options and PING's legendary color-coded customization and you have a wedge the company feels belongs on the main stage.

MyGolfSpy is looking for 4 avid golfers with a passion for their short game to test (and keep) a customized 3-wedge set of the new Glide 2.0 wedge, and then share their findings with the MyGolfSpy Community.

I am replying to the Ping Glide testers wanted.  I play Ping I 20 but with an old Hogan Apex shaft.  I just like the shaft.  But I have found the I20 heads  have helped  by improving my miss hits.

 

I don't change clubs very often. But as most golfers, I try new equipment to see if it helps my game.  I have  tried the  Cleveland's, Vokey's, Callaway"s and Tour Edge,  but nothing has worked as well as the wedges I have played for a long time. ( Tour Edge Tour Pronto 52*/12* bounce, Hogan Special 56 */ 10* bounce and a Hogan Legend 58* bounce with 6* bounce.

 

If selected, I will give you an honest feed back.  If your clubs do not improve

my short game, I will certainly return them.  If I see improvement, I will most happily pay you for them.

 

Looking at your wedge site I  thought this combination would work best, but I am open to try your recommendations.

 

52 ES, 56SS and 58TS.

John

St. Louis, Missouri, USA

Strengths:  pitching the ball, out of the rough/deep lies, flop shots and out of the bunkers.  I generate a lot of spin on the ball, so I can stop the ball quickly on firm greens. 

Weaknesses:  50-80 yard shots, tight lies and spinning the ball too much.  I sometimes have a problem controlling the amount of spin that I put on the golf ball.

Right handed, Ping Glide 2.0 50 Degree SS Green color code, Project X 6.0 plus 3/4", Ping 5 L Cord in Gold color code grip

Right handed, Ping Glide 2.0 54 Degree ES Green color code, Project X 6.0 plus 3/4", Ping 5 L Cord in Gold color code grip

Right handed, Ping Glide 2.0 58 Degree ES Green color code, Project X 6.0 plus 3/4", Ping 5 L Cord in Gold color code grip

 

I just ordered and received a set of Ping I200's and this would be amazing to have the wedges to go with my new irons!

Richard Wilson

Wichita, Ks

handicap: 3.4

Strenth: sand shots and half wedge shots.

Weakness: full wedges. Have habit for being 60 yards from green and still bring 20 feet from pin.

Never owned ping wedges before. Always have used Titleist.

 

Set: 50ss, 56es, 60ts. Standard length, -1/64 on grip. Have missing finger tips.

 

This would be an awesome chance to test the 2.0's. I would love to see if the wedges have as much an impact on my game. Need to take to next level.

Rob Clanton

Phoenix, AZ

3.7 index

 

Currently have Glide 1, 50 SS, 54SS, 60 SS adjusted to 59, blue dot stock CFS wedge shafts.

I play with big hitters and I am not that big.  The Glides keep me in the game with those guys and drive them crazy.  I have about worn those wedges out and am ready for new ones with the same specs. 

 

Most of my practice time is from 100 yards and in and around the chipping green, so these Glide 2.0s would be tested very thoroughly.

      Driver: Thank you MGS, flat out the best driver I have ever had in the bag.
      3W: A random purchase after being unable to hit the original epic 3w. Put same shaft that I was fit for in the epic and it has been a match made in heaven. Absolute money from the tee and I know exactly what it will do from the fairway. Combined with the driver there are not many par 5's that I can't reach. 
      5W: Solid club but this spot has always been a trouble spot in my bag and that hasn't changed in 20 years. 
      Irons: Love the combo and they feel absolutely amazing. All of them are 1* strong, standard lie and +1/2" Biggest thing I was looking for in making the change was more control. They definitely fly different than P790's but hopefully after an adjustment period they will meet or exceed my expectations. 
      Wedges: A different look from what I am used to but feel is amazing. The shaft on full swings is so easy for me to deliver correctly. 
      Putter: Not a fast revolving door but one that moves some. Have gotten used to the look of the center shaft but still struggling with alignment some. 
      Ball: Titleist PROV1X #23 imprinted with THEZIPR in blue. Have played this ball since its birth and while I have tried many other options nothing has been able to kick it out. 
      Rangefinder: Bushnell PRO X2 
      Glove: Footjoy Weathersof. Love the Ping tour glove but at the rate I go through gloves I just can't justify the price difference.
      Shoes: Ecco Biom G 3 BOA and Biom Hybrid 3 BOA. Most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.

      When it comes to PING many things come to mind, quality, engineering, performance and irons are among the first things most people will think of.   And with the release earlier this year of the G410 irons, PING has hit on each one of those characteristics. 
      Following the huge success of the G400 irons, PING has hit a home run with the striking black and red colors of this iron, as well as a being a bit more streamlined in all the right places.   PING has achieved the rare feat of providing an iron that has a profile appealing to even the most discerning of golfers, but yet still offering the forgiveness and help that higher handicaps look for. 

      We are looking for three forum members to join staff member Golfspy_Stroker in testing, reviewing and keeping a set of these G410's built to their custom specs.  Testing will require a nearly two month commitment of putting the irons in play on the course, at the range and providing ongoing commentary in the forum thorough out the process. 
      As an extra bonus to the irons, the selected testers will have the option to choose Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips equipped with Arccos.  The clubs will come with a 99 day free trial to arccos.  After that the tester would be responsible for paying for the subscription in order to continue it.   It will be a great way to add data to your review. 
      PING has opened this testing to all golfers regardless of country of residence.   All you have to do to be eligible for the testing is follow the below instructions.
       
      In a post in this thread please provide the following information...AND DO NOT QUOTE this post when replying!
      First Name/State or Country of residence
      Handicap
      Current irons in Play
      The carry distance of the your 7 iron
      That's it.   Good luck to everybody
      We'll be selecting the testers within the next 10 to 14 days, so check back to see if you've been selected!

      ===========================================================================================
      YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE....

      Please join me in congratulating these members selected from a very large and diverse applicant pool:

      Shankster and PING Blueprint Irons---A Match Made in Heaven? 
      Every so often we do a special review of a club on MGS.   Usually it's when the OEM provides us with one set or one driver etc for review, it's not practical to open it up to over 500 to 1,000 applications and pick just one person.
      So when the Blueprint review was generously offered by PING with the stipulation it went to a member who was a true low single digit handicap, we discussed as a group who would be an ideal member to reach out to test these beauties. Honestly at least half a dozen names came to mind, but some of them were already involved in a testing or had just completed one.  
      Then one name really jumped out at us,  Shankster.   Not just because he fit the handicap requirement, but if there is any one person on this site who is a more of a traditionalist and prefers the minimalist design in a club than Alan, we don't know who it is.  
      When we reached out to Shankster, it took him about 1 minute to say yes, and that's only because he was recovering from the shock of being asked and making sure he wasn't being punked!     We had to work through the timing of his move from Michigan to Maryland, but all that got sorted out.
      Not knowing exactly when today he'll get his post up, I'll leave you with a few of these.
