David Lingmerth ranked 61st in Driving Distance at the Memorial, averaging a whopping 47 yards per drive less than distance leader Dustin Johnson. He pulled off the victory by staying out of trouble as much as possible, and then effectively getting out of trouble when he couldn't avoid it.
Lingmerth wound up third in Stroke Gained: Putting, and tied for ninth in Scrambling. But the stat that stands out the most is this – the field saved par from the sand at Muirfield Village about half the time, but Lingmerth did so 86 percent of the time with an average proximity to the hole of 5 feet, 6 inches. So, with a tip of the cap to his Ping Cadence TR Ketsch putter, the most valuable club in Lingmerth's bag last week was hs Ping Glide sand wedge.
Ping engineered the Glide wedges from the hands down (from grip to sole) to increase spin and consistency. The Dyla-wedge grip is longer, for gripping down for trajectory control), while its stainless steel head offers three sole options (thin, standard and wide), along with added bounce and Gorge grooves for consistency and versatility. Lingmerth uses the standard sole versions.
