SPOTTED: Bubba Watson is gaming new Ping Glide Forged wedges

Published

on

Purveyors of cast irons and wedges that the company is, it’s surprising to see a forged offering from Ping. Indeed, it hasn’t happened since, what, Ping Anser irons in 2012?

Yet that’s exactly what PGATour.com’s Jonathan Wall spotted (and tweeted about) in Bubba Watson’s bag at The Memorial Tournament.

Behold: Pint Glide Forged wedges.

Per Wall’s tweet, Watson is continuing his traditional 52-56-60 wedge setup.

Watson has historically played a cast wedge, most recently gaming three Ping Glide 2.0 wedges (52-12 SS, 56-12 SS, 60-06 TS).

Interestingly, if the bounce numbers on Watson’s new wedges are correct, he’s playing a different amount of bounce in all three wedges. (switching from 52-12, 56-12, 60-06 to 52-10, 56-10, 60-08)

It’s unclear whether Watson is continuing to play True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts in the clubs.

    I think the Glide 2.0 have great feel off the ball, just a little bit light – it’s possible the forging will give it a more dense, solid feel. Let’s hope.

    These will go with the new i500’s. They’ll be going for total dedication from a lot of us. I can see a lot of bags going with 11 or 12 Ping clubs soon. These look original and awesome. I’ll definitely be buying.

    WTF Ping.
    Why do this all the time, telling people they couldn’t tell the difference between forged and cast carbon. And they go do this.
    Duh

      Mehbe it’s cause they can bend the forged hosel more than the double-annealed cast iron hosel…. particularly for the wedges… ya think?!!
