The short game is one of the strengths of my game, but the weakness would probably be  at 40-80 yards.  I played Ping Anser wedges prior to my current set (2 Vokey, 1 Mizuno) and loved them.

 

50/SS

54/SS

58/WS

Michael  

Maplewood NJ, 07040

My strengths are the delicate chips right around the green, fringe, first cut etc. 

I've been struggling lately with bunker shots from hardpan bunkers and the 30-40 yard shot. I need to get these closer to save strokes. I play on a Tillinghast course with fast greens where short of the green is better than long and often have a save shot from 10-15 yards off of an elevated green. 

The specs I would need are: 50 SS, 54 SS, 60SS KBS TOUR, Grip 5L CORD Gold. 

 

Would really love to try this. I've been searching for a new solution around the greens!
