Drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and many modern irons are designed to maximize distance and power, but when it comes to wedges, it’s all about feel, precision and accuracy. Good wedges instill confidence because they offer versatility from awkward lies and conditions, and they can help golfers generate more spin on chips, pitches and greenside bunker shots.
Ping’s newest wedge, the Glide Forged Pro, comes in a wide variety of lofts and has been designed with spin-enhancing features to let golfers get the ball close to the hole more often.
