In consultation with PING pros, we custom-engineered Glide Forged Pro for discerning shot-makers with a smaller, forged 8620 carbon steel head and precision-machined grooves for predictable, consistent results. A new face blast adds friction to increase spin and control across a newly expanded range of lofts and sole grinds to fit your game.
PING engineers conferred with our Tour staff and brand ambassadors in designing Glide Forged Pro to appeal to players who put a premium on precise, consistent shot making into and around the green.
The smaller heel-to-toe head, which is forged from 8620 carbon steel, creates a captured look at address, giving you the confidence to manipulate the head and execute any type of shot with maximum versatility for predictable results.
Combined with a precision-milled face and grooves, a new face blast adds texture to the hitting surface, creating friction and more interaction between the club and ball for more spin and lower launch. The hydropearl 2.0 chrome finish ensures consistent results from wet and rough conditions.
The PING EYE2 wedge face profile inspired the "S" grind 59° option, which is distinguished by the high toe design made popular by Karsten Solheim’s iconic sand wedge developed in the early 1980s. It features a blended hosel and a more traditional sole design than the original with approximately 1.5° less bounce than the other "S" grind lofts.
Two grind options, “S” and “T”, in multiple lofts expand the offerings to ensure a wedge choice to match your angle of attack and most common playing conditions. Eight custom grinds are available through PING Wrx, where we custom build Tour and college equipment.
The PING Z-Z115 wedge shaft provides a lower launch with more control and enhanced feel. The Arccos/Golf Pride Lite 360 Tour Velvet grip is engineered with an embedded sensor to record and analyze every shot when paired with the Arccos Caddie app. Combined, the grip and shaft are lighter, contributing to an overall weight reduction for the entire club.
