Lack consistency/accuracy in my wedges for full shots- short shots seems better but needs improvement also. Don't believe they are properly fit for me.

Chris Herrbach

Flower Mound, TX

 

Strengths are chipping from inside 20 yards and shots from 60 to 65 yards. Weaknesses, all other shots with the wedges. I struggle with bunker shot consistency and distance control on 3/4 to fill wedge shots. Trajectory control on 1/2 wedges is also weak.

 

Ideal setup would be 50/SS, 54/SS, and 58/WS. All at purple color code, standard length, DG spinner shafts, and 703 gold grips.

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.

Charlie Steele

Cambridge, Ontario, Canada 

Strengths - Short Green side pitches, stoping the ball 50 yards and under, green side bunkers.

Weaknesses - 50-100 yard wedges shots, green side ships out of rough.

50/54/58SS

 

I currently use 52, 56, 58.. (all different wedges) and would love to try a combo wedge set of Glide 2.0.

I used a set of ping wedges when I was down south earlier this year and absolutely loved the feel of them. 

 

 

Fingers crossed for this one!

 

thanks

Been playing Ping since early nineties. Currently playing G20 irons, i20 wedges, G 30 driver and 3 metal g30 hybrids. Fitted at ping factory for irons.. Love the short game as the long game has "shortened " . Summers in Canada, winter in US so get to play year round.

Chuck

Long Island, NY

 

Strengths: Chipping and pitching around or near to the greens. Approach shots 100 and in. (Short game makes up for mistakes off the tee....)

Weaknesses: Bunkers (those dreaded bunkers ... since you land in one generally after a mis-placed or whiffed shot, so you're already not too happy; plus I don't get to practice bunker shots very much so I got  Pocket Bunker). Also, on an uphill lie above the green - do not have that high, soft lob shot down yet.

 

Specs:

  • 50/SS
    • XP95/R300 ®
    • 5L/White
    • Len -1/2" short
    • Purple -1.5* flat
  • 54/SS
    • XP95/S300 (S)
    • Dyla-Wedge/Gold
    • Len -1/2" short
    • Orange -2.25* flat
  • 58/WS
    • XP95/S300 (S)
    • Dyla-Wedge/Gold
    • Len -1/2" short
    • Orange -2.25* flat

*Note:

NY still wintry .. last storm froze the snow into PACKED ICE.... So, won't be able to play on-course for a while (only indoor practice). Thx!
