Published

on

GolfWRX spotted new Ping wedges on the range at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. The wedges are marked Glide 2.0, indicating that the wedges will replace the company’s current Glide wedges that were released in January 2015.

The wedges photographed belonged to Ping Staffers David Lingmerth, Mackenzie Hughes (MH), Sebastian Munoz (JSM), Brian Campbell and others. The photos indicate that the wedges will be available in at least the four available Glide grinds: Standard Sole (SS), Wide Sole (WS), Thin Sole (TS), Eye Sole (ES).

Ping’s current line of Glide wedges are cast from 431 stainless steel and use the company loft-optimized grooves. Here’s 4 things you need to know about them.

    The original Glides are some of my favorite wedges of all time. Glad the 2.0 doesn’t stray to far from the original design.

Mizuno announces new JPX 919 Tour Forged irons are coming August 29 (via cryptic Twitter post)

Published

on

While cryptic, it does appear Mizuno is announcing via Twitter that its new JPX 919 Tour irons are coming on 8/29/18. One would have to assume that means they will be launched on 8/29, not actually hitting retail on 8/29, but that remains to be seen.

We recently spotted a number of new irons on the USGA conforming list, including the JPX919 Tour irons pictured above, JPX919 Forged and JPX919 Hot Metal irons from Mizuno. So it’s likely that the JPX 919 Tour Forged irons won’t be alone in the JPX 919 family when they hit retail.

The JPX 919 Tour iron specifically pictured in the Tweet above seems to be the replacement for Mizuno’s JPX 900 Tour irons that Brooks Koepka used to win this year’s U.S. Open and PGA Championship. Learn more about the original JPX 900 Tour design from Mizuno’s Chris Voshal on our Gear Dive podcast.

Diving a bit deeper into the picture from Mizuno’s Tweet, it appears the JPX919 Tour irons will utilize Mizuno’s familiar Grain Flow forging, and will be made from 1025E; that’s based on the hosel stamping that says “GF Forged HD 1025E.”

Stay tuned for more info from Mizuno.
