When & why: wedges

Club selection is always a key part of golf (it’s how Tour caddies make a living!), so let’s explore when you should pull out each wedge in your bag. What are the benefits? Can the wedge in your hand deliver what you need?

Let’s start by looking at those questions. Of course, the shot you want to pull off might not be possible if you’re in a less-than-ideal lie, and likewise you might need to execute a Hollywood shot over a bunker. The important thing here is actually having the tools to make the shot happen as you picture it. If you do, you can make it a reality.

One of the fastest ways to get your handicap down is to work on your wedge game.

That’s where PING Glide 3.0 wedges shine. Having a wide array of sole grinds in these wedges means no shot is off limit, whether it’s recovering from a tight spot or attacking the pin. Each of the wide, thin, standard & Eye2 grinds is designed with very specific characteristics to play into the hands of your swing type and the various types of shots you need to pull off.

These purpose-built models are great, but how do the wedges actually perform? Well, the Glide 3.0 wedge has unique wheel-cut grooves that create friction at impact for maximum spin. Adding in a large, soft elastomer insert allows PING to also give you incredible feel around the greens. Isn’t that the dream?
