Strengths:

Chipping for sure is the highlight of my around the green game

 

Weaknesses:

Probably the hardest shot is a 50-60 yard pitch shot.  I often get too much spin and the ball lands short or I don't get enough and it rolls way to far.

 

Due to the lofts in my irons I would play a 50 degree SS, a 54 degree ES bent to 55* to add a little bounce and a 60 degree ES.  I actually wish they made a wider sole version of the 50 degree as I come in fairly steep with my wedges.  The eye sole has been magic for me since I used to play the Ping Eye 2 wedges.

My bag is a revolving door!

Longtime Ping player starting with Eye2, i3 Blades, G2, and Now G15 Green Dot plus 1/2

Current wedges are G15 wedge, U Wedge, and Tour W yeah I know about the W but love it.

Known as a picker of the ball but am aggressive around the greens. Bunker play needs help.

Appreciate the opportunity to be considered for the wedges but am thrilled to be at least considered.

I struggle with consistency on 1/2 and 3/4 shots. The Dyla grips are a great way to know where to choke down to on the wedges to improve consistency as well as confidence.

 

Strenght - my chipping and Bunker play

 

46SS, 54SS, 60TS with Dyla Grip Gold and Dynamic Gold S300 +1/2"

 

Awesome opportunity. The Original Glides were great wedges - hope to get to try the 2.0's!
