PING Glide Forged Pro Wedge
Tour Inspired To Inspire All
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.
Compact Profile, Captured Look
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.
Eye2 Toe 59°
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.
Fit To Your Game
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.
Lighter, More Control
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.
Customised, Buy Direct
It’s fun and easy to express your personality on your wedges through customization, stylizing your short-game tools as one-of-a-kind statement pieces, then buy them direct at ping.com using our designer tool.
Stamping & Painting
You can custom-stamp letters on the toe, center, or scattered, and add paint fill to the letters and select areas like the loft, bounce, Glide Forged Pro name, and the PING logo on the hosel using a 13-color palette.
You’re invited to craft your own wedges with our designer tool, or choose from six distinctive, ready-to-go graphic designs: Mr. PING, Clover, U.S.A. Flag, Dart, Bite and Topographic.

PING offers a variety of shaft flexes in steel and graphite to meet your needs and preferences. Selecting the proper shaft flex for your swing will help you get the most distance and accuracy from every shot. Generally, players with faster swing speeds require stiffer shafts to keep the ball trajectory lower, while players with slower swing speeds will require more-flexible shafts to produce a higher ball trajectory.
The choice of steel or graphite shafts is usually based on preferences for weight and/or feel. Players seeking a lighter overall weight and/or a softer feel in their irons may prefer graphite shafts, while players who prefer a standard-weight club with a firmer feel may prefer steel shafts.
We recommend that you get fit for the shaft that allows you to play your best golf. Whether that’s a softer, lighter shaft with a higher launch or a heavier, stiffer shaft with a lower trajectory, a PING Certified Club Fitter can help you find the shaft that brings consistency to your game.

PING offers a variety of grip sizes and styles to fit different hand sizes and texture preferences. Since grip size influences your wrist action, and therefore the direction of your shots, it is commonly used by fitters to affect ball flight.
PING color-coded grips are available in six different diameters, and can be further customized with grip tape according to your needs. Once the neutral grip color code has been determined based on hand measurements, golfers may consider smaller diameter grips to help control fades and slices, or larger diameter grips to help control draws and hooks.
