I’m sorry PING, I know these wedges are great. I had a set of PING wedges a few years ago that had similar technology, and to be honest, I struggled with them. The reason was the bulky, heavy feel of the clubs, which later on you will find is a feature and a possible benefit.
I certainly preferred a lighter club that was a little thinner. The PING Glide 3.0 could almost be an extension of a full set of clubs. Don’t get me wrong, there is no doubt they will be great for the majority of golfers, even low, mid to high handicappers. However, for me, they were too heavy.
The Ping Glide 3.0 wedges have been described as a big step up since previous versions of PING wedges. There isn’t anything to be said about the grooves. They perform well and they will give you opportunities to spin the ball.
The main feature in the PING glide 3.0 wedges are the “Custom Tuning Port.” This is a cover that is inserted into the back of the clubface. The result for players is more forgiveness with off-center hits. Meaning that you will be more consistent with the distance you hit, pitch, and chip with your wedge. Even if you don’t find the middle of the club.
