Ping i210 vs Glide gap wedge – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been comparing and contrasting Ping’s i210 GW with the brand’s Glide GW. WRXer ‘Joe40’ is on the hunt for a 50-degree wedge and says:

“I recently bought a set of i210 irons 4-W. I’m now thinking I might like to add a 50* wedge (next wedge is a 54/8 Mizuno T20). Not sure whether to go for the set U wedge or the 50* Glide 3.0? I have the AWT 2.0 shafts in the irons.

Any thoughts on what, if any, differences I might notice?”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • nostatic: “Bounce is different by a degree (i210 has more), my hunch is the perimeter weighting is more on the i210. It looks like the elastomer insert area is smaller on the Glide 3.0, at least compared to my Eye2 grind. But I think they’d be more alike than different, at least compared to other wedges.”
  • ilikegolf26: “I’d go with the i210. The glide is a little inconsistent for me in terms of distance control, plus 12-15 years ago that loft was almost a PW anyway and would have been part of the set.”
  • jbandalo: “I went with Glide’s for my PW and up as they are more versatile. If just using the gap wedge for full shots only, I’d go with the set wedge. If you need to flight shots down, chips etc., I’d go to the Glide.”
  • Tupperwolf: “I have the U-wedge in my i210 set, and it’s one of my favorite clubs. I agree with the above that it’s basically a traditional loft PW, and I treat it as such.”

Dustin Johnson settles on driver after testing 5 in last week

Published

on

Dustin Johnson cracked his driver at last week’s Northern Trust and has since been on the hunt for a new gamer in time for this week’s BMW Championship.

Per Golf Channel, DJ was seen testing five different drivers on the range this week at Caves Valley Golf Club, and though he’s opted for the SIM most of the year, it appears Johnson is ready to try something new this week.

According to Golf Channel’s Brentley Romine, Johnson has settled on a TaylorMade SIM2 Max at 10.5 degrees with an LA Golf Shaft for this week’s playoff event.

Johnson is 20th on Tour for Strokes Gained: Off The Tee in 2021 but has struggled with the big stick since finishing T8 at the Open. Since then, DJ has missed two cuts from three.

Vokey WedgeWorks launches limited-edition 60A grind

Published

on

Vokey WedgeWorks has unveiled its limited-edition 60A grind, which is inspired by major champion Geoff Ogilvy.

The unique wedge features 60 degrees of loft and 4 degrees of bounce and is designed for the player looking to flight the ball higher while playing from firm turf and bunkers.

Speaking on the new limited-edition 60A grind, Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill said

I spoke with Geoff (Ogilvy), and we got on the topic of Australian golf courses and how they compared to courses in America and around the world. I asked him some specific questions which resulted in an idea to design a lob wedge that complemented the firm links-style conditions that players face – not just in Australia and Europe – but globally. Geoff has always been a low bounce player in his 60 degree, so I took the original chassis that he had in his L wedge and removed the ribbon taking the bounce down.”

The wedge was born out of the popular Vokey Design L Grind, with the grind line on the sole smoothed out in design for a faster feel through the turf.

Consistent with all SM8 wedges, the 60A features a progressive CG, pushed forward of the face for increased MOI, as well as Spin Milled grooves designed to offer a consistent ball flight control and maximum spin. The 60A is available in a Brushed Copper finish which will wear over time.

The limited-edition Vokey WedgeWorks 60A grind s now available for $250, only through WedgeWorks on Vokey.com.

A source at Graphite Design confirmed McIlroy is in the Tour AD XC 7 TX shaft as he looks for lower spin off the driver while still being able to draw the ball consistently.

The low/mid-launch, low spin shaft features a soft handle section with a stiff mid-section and tip and weighs 76.5 grams.
