  1. I was fit for my new set at the Club Champion in west LA this past spring. I went in with an open mind(that was the hardest part) and no loyalty to any one brand, I just wanted the best performing clubs for my swing. The fitter was very knowledgeable and helped me find the perfect set of clubs. It wasn’t cheap for the full set(fitting and purchase) but I play a lot and have played golf since I was about 5yrs old(I’m 52 now), that being said my swing is far from perfect because before the pandemic I had taken a break from golf for about 4 years The CC experience was eye opening and really showed me how the head and shaft combinations are crucial to finding the correct clubs for my swing, I’ve always wondered if I was using the best shafts for my swing and going to CC gave me the opportunity to test just about every shaft that was available which is an overwhelming task. I tested five different brands of heads and about six or seven different shaft manufacturers and different models of shafts for each of those companies. In the end I am hitting my irons almost two club lengths longer and all with a much tighter and consistent dispersion pattern. The 3w and hybrid are amazing, and I’m still working at getting more consistent with my driver. I went with off the shelf Vokey wedges but might get the matching shafts added eventually. In the end it was a great experience and very beneficial to my game. Hopefully my story helps.
  2. Looking at full face wedges, but I don’t quite understand why or if they actually will help. Shouldn’t the grooves that have been extended to the toe of full face wedges be angled at a 45 degree angle down to actually work for open face shots? Once the face is opened, aren’t the grooves pointing almost straight up and down not across the golf ball, effectively not imparting spin or possibly putting a lot of side spin ? maybe someone here can explain how these wedges work. Thanks
  3. Can Mizuno JPX 921 hot metal irons be bent to modify loft and lie angle? I’ve heard no, but are they like any other cast iron head which can only be bent a small amount before they break?
  4. Sorry, new here. What is this? And how do I enter the contest? Is there a link somewhere that I’m missing? Thanks
