Being 71 with a 3 handicap I am not very long off the tee and need a very good shot game. Always used Vokey wedges, presently have the SM6 54 and 58 M grind and not happy with the flight and feel from 80 yards in and went back to the SM4. to maintain my handicap need something that works like my worn out SM4. recently purchased i200 irons

I currently play Callaway wedges, having issues with distance control with them.

 

I'm a 53 and have a +1 handicap, need better control from 110 yards and in

 

My choices would blue dot 1/2 inch over length 6.0 shaft, 50ss 54ts 58ts

 

Would love to try these as I get ready for summer golf

High Point, NC

 

Handicap  10  (66 -- rely on wedge game!)

 

Current wedges include Titleist AP1 Gap Wedge;  Harry Taylor 56 and 60 wedges.  Did use Titleist Vokey 54 -- 08 and 60 -- 04.  Wedge shaft in all three.  Midsize grips...

 

Weakness -- chipping off hard ground around green.  Use 8 or 7 iron for the most part.

Handicap is 6


Currently play I2+ (black) and strengths are within 10 yards around the green, as the success rate for getting up and down is very high.


Weakness are in two areas (1) sand saves and (2) from 60 yards out.  Both are very inconsistent

Strength is inside 15 yards. I am usually up and down with no issues. Where I struggle is with getting it inside 10 feet from 100 yards and in. I currently have two PING tour wedges and I like them, but I have been looking at acquiring a third one in order to fill a gap I have as using three quarter and half swings gives me inconsistent results.

 

Club Specs

All clubs have +.25 inches in length, White color code, standard swing weight, Orange grip size, Dynamic Gold S300 stiff shafts.

 

50/SS, 54/SS, 58 TS
