Ping Glide 3.0 Eye2 Sand Wedge


Recommended Posts

Has anyone hit (or currently play) the ping glide 3.0 Eye2 in the 54 or 56 degree version? I definitely see the use for it in a lob wedge around the greens and in bunkers, but I am curious If the headshape is also useful for longer shots and full swings.

I know it is based off an older ping iron set so I assume it works perfectly fine for those purposes, but I thought I’d see if anyone has any input or comments.

I don't know about the 3.0, but the 2.0 are sweet. My daughter and a few other people I know play them. The Eye2 is of course the shape that's similar to the iconic model, and is well liked for good reason(s).

Well I can't help as I still have Eye 2's in the bag: a 50.5 Eye2 Wedge, 53 Eye 2+ SW and 57.5 Eye2 SW in the bag.  I just love how they hit and I never lack confidence when swinging them.  I know that if I ever get serious about playing "USGA" compliant clubs, these wedges would have to be updated.

I have to say, these have made a legitimate difference in my wedge game. For whatever reason, it’s much easier for me to really open the face on tight lies, which is something I struggled with. Definitely one of the better purchases I’ve made in a while.

In the 2.0, is the ES grind similar to (or the same as) the Eye2 grind, or different?

I play the original eye 2 sw. in 57.5 degrees. Awesome club.  You can pick up the original on eBay for 50 bucks. They don’t get much better.  I don’t like a 60 even though I keep one on the cart. It only gets used every 5 rounds. The 57.2 degrees for me is perfect all around. It moves through grass like a hot butter knife. The only way I don’t like it is off hardpan. Because of the bounce.  Do yourself a favor and if anyone you know has one borrow it and play around with different shots it’s sweet

Had a couple of games with mine now, easy to hit, also easy to get right underneath & hit it almost straight up.

I might have to practice with ball position , I’m finding I hit them both (54 & 58) way shorter than my 58 Vokey.

The 54 Eye 2 is good for chipping out of the long grass , and pretty easy to get out of bunkers.

    • So there's a booster for Moderna now? I thought they were saying the Moderna efficacy didn't drop like the prize one did? Like Pfizer dropped to 70 something but Moderna stayed in the 90s after 6 months?
    • Welcome to The Sand Trap! Thanks for posting. First, you are flexible and look pretty athletic, which helps. In the down the line swing, you can see you are coming in a little out-to-in or over the top, which can lead to the pull slices you mentioned. In the face on, you can see you also flip a bit, as you mentioned. You don’t shift your weight much forward during the downswing, which can cause this. Below are a couple of threads. First is the Five Simply Keys thread, 5SK. The 5SK are the common things all good golf swing have and is not a swing method, but a guide so to speak. Key 2, for example, is weight forward at impact. This may be something you should look at. There are video drills for each Key in the thread. The second thread was started by the site owner during the pandemic lockdown last year when courses were close. It is an excellent collection of drills to work on. The first five are full swing drills. They start with backswing and go through impact. Proper backswing sequence and position can help set up a good downswing sequence. Check them out. Lastly, We like to get to know our members here on TST and one of the things that helps is when members choose a unique avatar for themselves. Please add one (here's a guide to help if you're not sure how).    And we have lots of other topics here on the site. Check them out as well and join in the conversations.  
    • I don’t know enough about it to answer intelligently, but it seems a bit different  than what my instructors want me to do. An example is the long arc drill where we try to slow down release or wrist turnover through to A9 and keep palmar flexion a bit longer. This would keep the face open longer. For me, it may be because it would help my face to path be more consistent at impact. It seems to be a timing scenario if you let the face rotate freely. I think it should be ‘happens’ but training it with gate drills for start line may help. if I use my ‘spirit animal’ PGA Pro example, from my Evolvr instructor, I would say the number would be a lot less. It’s hard to tell from the image below, but it looks like Zack’s face is more closed at A6. So basically, I will do what my instructor tells me I should do.😀

    • 9 handicapper myself and a certified club ho for many a year! Personally I have played 735cm's, many versions of Hogan Apex and modern Hogan irons, Ping G's, I's, S's, Becu's, the lot! Maxfli A10'S, Maxfli Rev's, Taylormade, Adams, Callaway, Macgregor, Wilson Staff........basically the whole damn shaboom!! Decided a few months ago to make the game as easy as possible. I picked up 5-pw Cleveland HB Turbo irons, Callaway 50*56*60* Mack Daddy CB wedges and a Ping Craz-e vault 2 putter. Threw in a Taylormade Sim2 3 wood and a couple of Ping Karsten hybrids 4+5. Tell you what give the Cleveland HB Turbo's a chance, IT IS LIKE CHEATING. Great length, good trajectory, can get some gentle fade or draw movement with a little club face manipulation.  If the technology was there a few hundred years ago they would be the norm!
