(4) TESTERS WANTED

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.

5 Handicap; xp95 regular shafts; ping 5L cord blue; brown color code; glide ss: 60; 56; 50. I am NOT a good chipper of the ball and need all the help I can get. But I hit greens. Bunker play is good.

Mike


Ottawa/Ontario


Strength is 60-125


I would say weakness is inside 60 yards and bunkers.


Specs provided were 60ES 54SS and PW


Color Code Red/CFS Graphite/S80/Std Length/Dyla-Wedge grips/Color Code Aqua.


Since the gaps seem to be large, and I got no bounce suggestions, wondering if a local fitting would make sense, should I be selected. Could then send them in for processing?

David Shelton (Yeah, I'm new here. Thanks for having me.)

Indianapolis, IN

 

Strengths: Soft, high flops and touch shots. Did you say favorite or best at? Pretty accurate with 3/4 shots from 70-90 yards

 

Weaknesses: Not the best at bump and runs. I struggle with club selection and "trusting" the roll. Average bunker player with basically one type of shot. Full wedge shots are difficult, I tend to slide/flip when trying to get too much out of it. 

 

Specs: 50* SS (1* up), 54* WS (std), 58* ES (1* flat)

Dynamic Gold X100 

Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2G - Black +2 wraps

Mizuno MP-T5 50* 55* 61*, DG X100, standard (61 = 1* flat)

Ping G30 LS Tec 9*, Diamana 'Ahina 70X

Ping G SF Tec 16*, Diamana 'Ahina 70X

Ping Ketsch Mid, 33.5 inches

 

Dexterity: Right

Indianapolis, IN

Index: 3.8
