GEAR | WHAT’S NEW 22 NEW GEAR THE LATEST & GREATEST FROM THE BIGGEST BRANDS PING GLIDE FORGED WEDGE PING INTRODUCES GLIDE FORGED WEDGE WITH CUSTOMISATION AND PERSONALISATION. Forged from 8620 carbon steel with sizing and shaping influenced by PING tour professionals and advisors, the Glide Forged wedge is the Ping’s newest wedge. It is engineered and crafted for golfers wanting to improve their shot-making by employing a sleek, high-spinning blade-style design with a soft, pleasing feel. ‘The Glide Forged wedge represents an exciting new direction for us,’ said John K. Solheim, PING President. ‘It’s also our first fully forged wedge offering in several years and it comes with the ability for golfers to create a truly unique wedge by adding custom graphics, stamping and paint fills. The combination of the wedge’s technology and the customization options gives golfers a great opportunity to improve their short games while creating a wedge that’s totally unique to them.’ 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. Patented, precision-milled, wheel-cut grooves, first introduced in the Glide 2.0 wedges and 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. > SHOP THE BIGGEST RANGE | BEST ADVICE | LOWEST PRICE | SHOP 24/7 OR LOCATE A STORE | drummondgolf.com.au Glide Forged Wedges (RH & LH) Multi-material construction: Forged, 8620 carbon steel.
