SKY Caddie goes revolutionary

A shotmakers club – It’s a somewhat surprising departure from PING’s standard wedge offering.
It’s Tour-inspired and is aimed squarely at the better player. That’s me out of using these then!!Glide Forged is not a replacement for the year-and-a-half-old Glide 2.0 wedges. Those aren’t going away. Instead, Glide Forged represents a completely new category for PING.
“Our Tour guys and brand ambassadors, they were yearning for little smaller head shape,” says Marty Jertson, PING’s Product Development Manager. “We termed it internally as a shotmaker’s wedge.”
What makes the Glide Forged a shotmaker’s wedge? For starters, the head size is about 10% smaller than Glide 2.0. PING has also added a wee bit more offset and rounded the head shape a tad. Jertson says it’s all in the name of giving shotmakers a little more versatility.
The new Glide Forged wedges are available for custom fitting and pre-order at authorised PING golf shops around the world beginning today.
Working closely with PING professionals and company advisors, including Louis Oosthuizen, Stan Utley and Todd Anderson, PING’s engineers designed the Glide Forged wedge to provide the feel and versatility required to play an array of approach and finesse shots around the green. A sole design with a rounded lead edge and more heel-toe camber allows for greater shot-making and creativity around the green. The gooseneck-tapered hosel ensures a smooth transition through grass and sand while providing a captured look at address.
