I've played PING woods, irons, and putters since the introduction of the PING Eye2 in the early eighties.  I've always been a PING fan.


Good chips

Good pitch

Excellent bunker player

Flop shot needs work

Strengths: 50-100 yds in. Can get the ball decently close

Weaknesses: 10 - 50 yards in. Always seem to duff the short chips. Very inconsistent.

Love bump and run shots. Good at those.

Blue dot.

White standard grip with 3 wraps  + 1/4".

AWT stiff wedge shaft, right hand.

Thank you

Best part of my game is my chipping and bunker play. I'm always looking for the best set of wedges. I would consider playing the following - 50/SS, 56/SS and 60/SS, R-300 shaft, stock grip

Short game:

Strength: chipping and pitching around the greens

Weakness: 40-70 distance control


Set make up: 50 SS, 56 SS, 60SS


I currently game the old glide wedges and would love to test and see if the new 2.0 would make any difference in my short game.
