In this issue we look at irons and wedges. the partiCipants ben Carotta, Newport Beach, CA Handicap: 6 kit Chan, Placentia, CA Handicap: 7 mike mCdonouGh, Wichita, KS Handicap: 6 trudy mCdonouGh, Wichita, KS Handicap: 24 theresa waller, Newport Beach, CA Handicap: 32 bob paul, Fullerton, CA Handicap: 7.2 how we did it what ping says: The grooves in the Glide 2.0 wedges are spaced closer to- gether for increased friction, while also allowing for additional grooves. The higher-lofted wedges are engineered for finesse shots around the green with two more grooves than the original Glide, and the lower-lofted clubs are built for full shots with one extra groove. what the testers said: "Well balanced, easy to hit." – Mike McDonough "The club felt soft at impact. Good club!" – Theresa Waller "Lots of bounce. Would be good from rough or soft sand." – Kit Chan "I like the wide sole and balanced feel." – Bob Paul shop here pinG Glide 2.0 what taylormade says: These wedges feature advanced surface milling techniques for precise sole geometry, leading edges and score lines resulting in a precisely crafted grind that leads to optimal turf inter- action and consistent performance. what the testers said: "Looks cool and feels nice, too." – Ben Carotta "Nice distance and weighting and felt good at impact. Good perform- ance and results." – Theresa Waller "Feels good and has a very crisp feel. No complaints here!" – Kit Chan "Club head is heavy but nice, plus had good ball flight." – Bob Paul shop here taylormade milled Grind what wilson says: The FG Tour fea- tures a proprietary Tour-Y Groove de- sign and 11 laser-etched enhancers between each scoreline to maximize spin. The traditional sole provides opti- mal width and camber for players with medium to steep swings, while the Tour Grind Sole offers a thinner sole width for players with a medium to shallow angle of attack and those who like to play a variety of shots around the green. what the testers said: "Very versatile club. It's a bit upright, but the face was hot and I really like the grind." – Kit Chan "Large face and beautiful blue color, and it had a little heavier feel." – Theresa Waller visit a store near you wilson staff fG tour ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 20 17
