Spotted: Ping Glide 2.0 Wedges

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.
