Higher Spin for Control

Patented, precision-milled, wheel-cut grooves enable grooves with a sharper edge radius, which increases interaction with the ball at impact, creating more friction for improved spin and trajectory control.

Soft, Assured Feel

8620 carbon steel produces an incredibly soft feel in the blade-style head. Every detail was covered, including milling the back of the wedge to create a distinct, appealing pattern. A tungsten toe weight adds forgiveness

Designed for Versatility

A sole design with a rounded lead edge and more heel-toe camber allows for more shot-making creativity around the green. The face is machined flat to ensure consistent ball speeds, especially toward the toe, to improve accuracy.

Customize, Personalize

Add artistic flair to your wedges from a selection of four eye-catching graphic designs: boomerang shapes, Mr. PING (seen here), the American flag, or an Arizona desert landscape.

Stamping

You can also custom-stamp and paint fill using up to three letters and colors on the heel, center, or toe. You might use your initials, or choose the Mr. PING logo.
