2017 Ping Glide 2.0 Wedge

Unique Features:  

In designing its new Glide 2.0 wedges, the priority was to improve spin in an effort to give golfers even more control over their golf ball, and that goal has been realized in multiple ways. The wedges feature additional grooves that have been implemented into the design to increase friction on all shots. In the lower lofted wedges (46-52 degrees) one groove has been added, while two grooves have been added to the higher lofted models (54-60 degrees). Additionally, a new precision milling process being used for Glide 2.0 wedges has increased spin rates on full shots by nearly 350 RPM over the original Glide wedges and by roughly 200 RPM on shots played from around the green. The stainless steel heads also repel moisture, giving players maximum spin even in wet conditions.

Tester Comments:  

There is a decent amount of heel and toe relief if you like to play around with opening and closing the face … White scoring line at bottom of face makes it easy to align … Great from the sand.

“A very forgiving wedge lets you hit all shots from sand or turf.”

$139 – $159
