Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches

PGA National (Champion Course)


Glide 4.0

Hot List Gold 2023

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: From full shots to nip spinners around the green, one groove shape doesn’t fit all. The Glide’s lower lofts have grooves with a 20-degree sidewall to optimize volume on full shots where more turf is taken. On the higher lofts, the sidewall increases to 28 degrees with a sharper groove edge to maximize grab. One additional spin tactic: A new face blast adds texture to the hitting surface for additional friction. 

WHY WE LIKE IT: Getting golfers into the proper fit has been Ping’s mission almost since the company’s inception. That extends to the short game. Four swing-specific options range from a thin sole S-grind for players who take shallow divots to the bunker-friendly E-grind that is based on the iconic Eye2 lob wedge. Read more>>

"Nice bounce. The sole really glides through the turf. A very versatile club. Really forgiving on full shots. A full-utility club around the green."
Handicap, 2
“This is my full-swing star: never digs, crisp feel, consistent medium-high flight and extremely versatile around the greens.”
Handicap, 6
"A perfect extension to a full set. It will fit in with anything you have. I love the soft feel on full shots. In the sand the name says it all. It simply glides through the sand."
