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.

Testers Wanted!

As you know, MyGolfSpy never takes an OEM's word for anything. We believe in #datacratic testing, and #PowerToThePlayer isn't just a hashtag, it's a mission statement. We want to see if the new PING Glide 2.0's can indeed turn the Big Three into the Fab Four, and we need your help to find out.

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.

Chipping and controlled wedge shot from 80-100 is a strength.  Bunkers and pitching from 40 yards is a weakness (right now).


Would love to test:


50 SS (I play off a 45 PW)


54 ES


58 ES


 


All +1* Up | +1/4" | with MCC Plus 4's


Thanks for a great opportunity!

Thanks for the opportunity!

My short game with my current Glide 1.0 set is pretty strong.  My wedges save me many shots around the greens and I would consider myself a pretty decent player from 100 yards in, chipping around the greens and bunker play.  My greatest short game weakness that has nothing to do with wedges,  is putting.  That is why it is important that I chip or land it close!

 

 

50* SS, 54* TS, 58 ES

My strengths are being able to control my wedges particularly the ball flight. I tend to get steep so big divots and I sometimes have difficulty getting the ball up high and stopping fast.

Would love to try these... I have a whole Ping bag, glide wedges and g30 irons. Played the Eye2 wedges in the past as well, and am a big fan of the eye grind..

 

Tony

Eau Claire, WI

Short game is solid. Generally use my 56 with a high bounce for chipping. 40-50 yard pitches usually the 60 degree comes out, and enjoy using a little higher bounce wedge even in the 60.. 50 degree for the bump and runs and a lot of 3/4 and full shots.. my bump and run game needs a bit of help, and would appreciate a little more spin on the check up chips and pitches..

 

Hope I get the chance, to help with these..
