TESTERS ANNOUNCED: PING Glide 2.0 Wedges

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

name: Thomas
State: WA
Strengths: short game is my strength and I spend more than 1/2 my practice time on it. Have a backyard green to assist with this. My strengths are good hands, and an imagination to work different kinds of shots
Weakness: intermediate distances: 50 yard, 30 yard, this is where I am losing strokes I am wavering between 10-12 hcp, next goal is 5 to do so GameGolf tells me short game and approach (125-100) strokes lost to a 5 is 2.91 and 2.39 — so it is “good” but could be better. Distance control.

Specs:
50 SS
54 SS – half moon grind
58 TS – lob combo grind
All White, Dial-A-Wedge Gold, Length +.25″, AWT 2.0 or Prefer: KBS Tour Stiff

I currently game the gorge tour wedges and struggle on chips around the green, and 100-110 yard full swing shots. Love Ping clubs, the s55 irons are the best I've played

I received my NEW PING I200's on Saturday. Played my first round with them at Augusta Pines in Spring Texas yesterday, 3/14. The I200's are awesome. The GLIDE wedges would round out the set beautifully.

(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.

Taylor Hammond

Birmingham, AL

Short game is one of the big strengths in my game. I am currently a Vokey loyalist. My biggest short game strength is probably flop shots. I am continuing to work on using wedges other than my lob for bump and run shots when I have more green to work with.

The set I would love would be 50,54,58 With KBS shafts
