PING releases new wedges with improved feel and control for every imaginable shot around the green
It seems like there’s no limit to technology when it comes to golf equipment these days. Behind every distance-gorging driver and every forgiving iron is some new-age technology. Don’t get me wrong, these innovations are spectacular, and now we see it again, but this time in wedges.
PING has released the Glide 3.0 wedges with deep, sharp grooves for a higher spin a lighter overall system weight for improved feel and control. And since we’re talking about innovations, these wedges have a higher MOI head.
I know what you’re thinking, isn’t MOI mainly discussed in woods? The Glide 3.0 wedges feature a more significant, softer elastomer Custom Tuning Port (CTP) which provides a softer feel and expands the perimeter weighting for increased MOI. All of that is important in these particular wedges because it produces a lower launch with higher spin for more control, everything a golfer could want around the green.
Just like there’s not one club for all golfers, there’s not one wedge for all shots around the green. And with that in mind, the Glide 3.0 wedges are offered in a multitude of lofts and four different grinds, including the classic PING Eye2 SW.

Ping Glide 3.0 Wedges
Patented, wheel-cut grooves developed by PING’s engineering and manufacturing teams enable grooves with a sharper edge radius, which increases interaction with the ball at impact, creating more friction for improved spin and trajectory control. The grooves in the lower-lofted wedges (46°, 50° & 52°) are milled with a 20° sidewall and a .005” edge radius for optimal full-shot performance. The higher-lofted versions (54°, 56°, 58° & 60°) feature an extra ½ groove at the bottom of the face for added spin and are milled to a .004” edge radius and a 28° sidewall to impart more spin, especially around the greens.

Mid-bounce sole with heel relief. Engineered for golfers with a moderate angle of attack. Exceptional performance in a variety of turf and sand conditions. Fits most golfers.
Most forgiving through the ground. Round and cambered sole with significant bounce. Recommended for golfers with a steep angle of attack who typically play in soft turf and sand conditions.
Matches original EYE2 SW sole profile, narrow hosel transition and
high toe shape for the ultimate in bunker performance and touch shots around the green.
Facilitates precise shot-making and versatility from tight lies. Extreme heel relief with 3˚ bounce grind. Ideal for firm conditions and a shallow angle of attack.
New Dylawedge Lite Grip
Five grams lighter than the original Dylawedge grip, the new version is softer and designed 3/4” longer than a standard grip with reduced taper to allow golfers to grip down for more versatility and trajectory control on finesse shots around the green.
New, lighter shaft
PING Z-Z115 shaft made by Nippon is lighter and has a lower balance point closer to the tip to help feel the head for more control and versatility.
