Recommended Posts

Ryan

Buffalo, NY

Strength: Greenside bunkers and flop type shots when short sided or not much of a carry between myself and the hole

Weakness: Long pitches and bump and runs where I have a long distance between myself and the hole. Tend to hit the ball thin, thinking its partially a bounce issue.

Strength: Great from 80 yards in with good height and spin. Sand shots are also good.

Vern


 


Detroit Lakes, MN 56501


 


I'm very good at chipping from around the green.  I struggle with short to mid distance wedge shots off of tight lies.  I also struggle with distance control out of the bunker.


 


I currently game ping I25 irons and have been a ping iron guy for a long time.  


 


My ideal set-up would be:


 


50 degree SS, 54 degree SS, 58 degree SS, I'm standard length and lie, black dot on my wedges which is a little flatter than the blue dot I use on my irons, stiff flex.

(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.

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.
