PING have introduced the Glide Forged Pro wedge series. The tour-inspired, high-spinning design is offered in two grind profiles and multiple loft options to fit players who rely on precision and control to shoot lower scores.
In consultation with its Tour staff and brand ambassadors, PING’s engineers designed the Glide Forged Pro for golfers who focus on saving shots into and around the green.
The smaller heel-to-toe head, which is forged from 8620 carbon steel, creates a captured look at the address, giving players the confidence to manipulate the head to help execute any shot they are facing.
In combination with the precision-milled face and grooves, the new Emery face blast adds more texture to the hitting surface, creating higher friction and more interaction between the club and ball for more spin and lower launch.
The 50º and 52º lofts feature wheel-cut grooves with a 20º sidewall to optimise performance on full shots. The 54º to 62º options are milled with a 28º sidewall and tighter radius for more spin and precision on finesse shots around the green and from the sand.
The hydropearl 2.0 chrome finish adds to the higher spin and lower launch, especially from wet and rough conditions. Two grind options in multiple lofts expand the offerings to ensure a wedge choice to match a golfer's playing conditions and angle of attack.
In the "S" grind, moderate bounce and a rounded lead edge combine to produce an option that fits most golfers. It comes in seven loft and bounce configurations.
The "T" Grind has a narrower sole with approximately 3º less bounce than the "S" to make it more versatile and precise around the green.
It’s available in three lofts, including 62º, which offers low bounce and high loft for the most greenside versatility and will be a popular choice on tour when matching course conditions.
The RRP per club will be £199.00 with a stock steel shaft and £209 per club with a stock graphite shaft. The custom-fit, custom-built Glide Forged Pro wedges are now available for pre-order at authorised PING retailers around the world.
