Wonderful!  I love it!  I'm glad you are playing it.  I'm not one to look at a golf club; I'm either playing it or it's in the garage.

Awesome @PING Apologist #9.  Glad that custom beaut is playing as well as it looks.  Jacob does some great work!  Keep us posted on how well it does for you on the course.  What was the bounce on the 58 that you took out of the bag?

That one too was 8* and has the "eye Sole" or ES grind. It was my first "real" wedge and is a favorite.

Many of you may be wondering why a 60? Honestly, I thought it'd be just plain old simple fun to try out. Had PING offered a 62*, I may have opted for it instead in order to keep the 4* gap thing, but alas they didn't and still don't. Now I may have to re-think my gaping should this baby be played more often than not. Speaking of, for those of you in the know on wedges, does a guy change them up depending on conditions? I believe I hear about that idea every now and again, but I don't think I possess the skills to know the difference yet.

What a cool looking wedge and story behind it.  Skookum is the word that immediately comes to mind 😂.

Wow...congrats! That wedge looks fantastic. Good to see you playing it as well. I know the Glides are fantastic wedges so it's good to hear the forged are buttery smooth.

After long last, late last week I finally took delivery of something very, very special that I'd like to share with you all.
Way back about 8-9 months ago, I was futzing around on-line one Friday and got a notice that MGS was "going live" with a "closest-to-the-pin" contest on their YouTube channel.
[/url] Curious, I tuned in to watch Adam and crew at MGS HQ preparing to see who could get closest to the hole on the simulated floating green (#14) at the Coeur d'Alene Resort. They were asking viewers to participate and submit their guesses for the closest shots in order to win some prizes. I believed I simply typed in 5' and sat back to watch the fun. I really didn't pay too close attention to the successful shots, but more enjoyed watching these guys make their attempts in a variety of ways.
A few days later, I get an email from Adam stating that I had indeed won the grand prize...A custom wedge from the Wedge Wizard himself!!! I was absolutely floored! Not long after, I was in contact with Jacob (the Wiz) and we discussed model, options, design and all the good stuff that goes along with a "blank check" like this opportunity and off we went. Long story short, and after some unforeseen delays and hiccups, this is what I was presented with...

She's a PING Glide Forged and as you can see in 60* with 8* of effective bounce. Her transmission is an Alta CB 83g graphite mid-launch shaft paired up with a Dyla Wedge grip making for a D5 swing weight. Jacob actually included a nice hat & tee shirt from his shop as well which are super cool!
Wall hanger? NO. I actually swapped out my Glide 2.0 58* with it because I just had to play with it yesterday and what can I say...She is AWESOME! Butter smooth and did everything a hacker like me could ask of it. I had a bunker shot facing me after my tee shot came up short at the par-3 8th. My ball was lying on the flat and with a fairly clean lie, but the bunker was below the hole with a pretty sizable lip on it that is kind of like a hump. I only had maybe 20' to the pin and some green to work with behind it should it go long. I lined up and reminded myself to follow-through and actually executed the shot correctly. The ball popped up, landed just beyond the lip and rolled out to about 5' away from the cup. Made the par. Made a few other shots with it that were just off the green and wow did she ever perform! Are you reading about the next Seve or Phillip? Heck no! But what a club!!!
Thank-you so much to
@golfspy X, MGS and Jacob "The Wedge Wizard" himself for making this happen and giving me a unique and truly awesome stick! For curious (or the sick), below is a link to Jacob's website. He does fantastic work and is one Hell of nice fella to work with if you are looking for custom work. Cheers all and thanks for viewing!
