Whilst I use a Ping Anser Putter, I have never been a fan of Ping Golf Irons, which I’ve found to be far too bulky and hard to control, especially from the rough.
This latest golf review is of the Ping Tour Wedge made from cast 17-4 stainless-steel heads, and the golf grooves are milled to get closer to the USGA limits on volume and edge sharpness.
These Ping Tour Wedges come in 13 loft/bounce options, ranging from 47 to 60 degrees; three sole grinds; and are finished in non-glare dark-satin.
The Ping Tour Wedge cavity design to create perimeter weighting and room for a weight port to improve feel and maintain swingweight consistency.
The three sole grinds on the Ping Tour Wedge series offer the buyer, low, medium and high bounce angles. These golf wedge sole options are distinct and easy to understand.
Similar in good head shape and size to other golf wedges that have been launched around the same time.
The heel-toe ratio is well proportioned and the design looks efficient. The white paintfill in the bottom groove is good for ensuring correct alignment and target aim.
This cast product from Ping Golf Company felt a lot harder and sharper compared with other golf wedges I’ve tested made from forged soft iron.
No breakthrough work has been done on surface roughness. Nice golf wedge but does not provide me with the control that other wedges deliver for a similar price point.
Feedback: Getting there, but need to improve if Ping are going to be a serious contender in the Tour Wedge market.
