Park Rapids, MN, USA

 

Strengths- popping chips up that land softly, fighting the ball high and judging it's distance

Weakness- Bump and run shots and controlling the check on those shots, sand play is my big downfall

 

Would love a 50SS, 54SS, and 58TS set at +.75 with dgs400 shafts to try and post feedback on.

Eufaula, Alabama, US

I'd say my biggest weakness in my short game is my distance control with my wedges. My full wedge shots are pretty consistent, but once I have to back off to try and dial in those in-between yardages, I tend to find my ball falling just short of the green more than I would like.

My short game strength is my putting. I'm a pretty damn good lag putter mainly because I can read greens very well and can get the feel of the green speed play down pretty quick, usually within the first 2 holes.

The 3 wedges I would want would be the 50/SS, 54/ES & the 58/ES.

Thanks & good luck all.


Irons: TaylorMade RSi 1 standard length/lie.

Driver Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon KURO KAGE Silver TiNi 60 Stiff.

Putter: 2003 Scotty Cameron Studio Stainless Newport 2.5.

Dexterity: Right-handed.

First name: Eric


Hometown/State: Hastings-on-Hudson, NY


Strength & weakness of your short game: A strength would be having the creativity to visualize a variety of shot options. A weakness would be trying to figure out how much the ball is going to check up on that first and second bounce.

(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.
