    Wedge game is my thing. Remembering the history of this game. A modern traditionalist of sorts, respect the game, quiet please. Talk a walk in Wingtips.

  1. I usually use the BK, DJ, and Rory method. Hit as close to the green as I can, figure it out when I get there. Might not hit it as far as them, but having short irons or wedges into greens isn’t a bad plan. My philosophy for the year is “I didn’t pay to lay up”... [emoji6] Your Strategery will work wonders though. I used to play like that.
  2. They aren’t that much smaller than my previous set heel to toe. Mostly from top line to sole is the only real obvious difference and it isn’t much.
  3. I think Harbaugh needs this win more than any other for the rest of the season. It can be a proving ground for his new coaches, players, and get rid of some of the negative press. This game will set the tone for the next 2 seasons in A2. I’ll have to listen on the radio....
  4. Definitely. I’m glad you pulled some useful information out of it all. I think you’ll enjoy them even if they don’t end up in your bag. Very distinct feel and ball flight.
  5. My only issue with it is some manufacturers don’t make corresponding wedges. I personally would like to see more set GW’s. It is a full shot club for most everyone, yet we have to try and match a specialty wedge in there. There are a lot of sets with GW’s for sure... but a few in my preferred iron category lacks. That 50°/51° square soled wedge. Speaking in my own preferences of course. I’d love to see a Blueprint GW... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. Will Jordy win? No Tiger win major? Yes BK 3 n a row? No Rahmbo... Yes The Open? No (Tiger) Viktor Hovland will win 4 tournaments including the PGA Championship and a T3 at The Masters. Adam Scott won’t win the FEDEX Cup, but unfortunately The Science Guy will... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. In the realm of blades yes. Compared to some offerings they aren’t one bit. I’d even say they are as forgiving as the i200’s, from what I remember.
  8. Just rolled over 18000 likes. Thanks everyone. Not a “like” chaser... just glad you guys keep putting up with me and enjoying my content. Carry on. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. It is holding up extremely well on these. The soles scratch easily if there is even a hint of sand. Faces are holding up well. I am noticing a little starburst like pattern even though I wash the range balls when I used them. I’ll try to snag a picture if I can get the lighting right. Being Forged 8620 then ding super easy... almost too easy really. I wanted these to be the forever club, but I don’t think I could get much more than 5 years without having to replace them at the current amount I am playing... maybe, only time will tell. That’s where PING needs to keep this type of iron in their lineup. When I say they are forgiving, I truly mean it. For a blade they are stupid forgiving. They definitely hit the mark with these. Now just don’t mess them up.... or stop making them all together.
  10. I didn’t get along with them very well. I am going to test the new Wilson FG Tour. Also like to get my hands on some of those left dash V1x’s... but how? From what I’ve noticed if I use a lower spinning ball it doesn’t really change much with the irons, still a ton of spin, but I lose spin on the wedges. AVX is the example here. So that is a lose / lose there. The BStone Tour B’s are too spinny too... Dang. I have no idea what to use. I guess I’ll just have to play for aiming at the flag with everything except long irons. But heck, I even stopped a 2 hybrid in 8’ on a green. Maybe a lower spinning shaft? Hopefully I can narrow this down when I go get these Blueprints a cousin or 4 to add in the bag. Starting with the big one.
  11. Yes Sir. Nailed it. I even managed to pull a ball off the green with a 7 iron. Not lacking in the spin department... now I just have to figure out how to regulate it better.
  12. This is definitely not what I expected to see. Homna at the top?! Pretty awesome to see how well the PING Glide 3.0 holds up when it’s damp out. I hope the governing bodies don’t see this and say “Hey PING... you can’t use your Hydropearl anymore.”
  13. With winds north of 23mph out of the west, I took the opportunity to work on some low 50-75 yard shots.... directly into the wind. Nothing more fun than hitting a 7 iron that travels head high for 75 yards. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. I am going to take this to the next level for 2020. The goal is to break 70. Stand by for Shankster: Uncharted Territory With episode 2 coming up some teasers are: a Mid/Late November driver fitting, cold iron winter golf, and much much more. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
