Wedge Chatter

Recommended Posts

Glad you found something that works for you. I probably need to go find a place with lots of wedges and try different manufacturers and sole grind to see what works best for me. At this point I have gotten close to being afraid to pull a wedge out of my bag which is not beneficial to scoring well.

 

Have you tried an 8 or 9 iron for chipping?  I know it is old fashioned, but with a little practice the ground becomes your friend.  I love them for chipping...

I chip and pitch with lots of clubs.  I try to let the situation dictate the club and I try to land the ball a few feet onto the green and let it run out to the hole.   For example 9 iron would be my 1 part carry 4 parts roll club.

Old School! Love it

Last Summer one charity outing I volunteered at they had me sit by the green of a long uphill Par 3 to spot the Hole In One contest. No, noone made it but the story here is EVERY player .. not most, *everyone* .. who landed short and on the upslope went for the Phil flopshot. And EVERY player .. not most, *everyone* .. failed.....

 

Many were still short of the green, a few went off to the side or into a bunker, a few went long.

 

Only guy who put it close from a short tee shot did the old school bump and run.

My b-in-law says that Harry Taylor Golf has gone under...anyone know anything about this?  Great wedges but marketing plan was a little sketchy.

      I have been using my new MG2 for a few weeks now and really like the feel. I have 2 other Taylormade wedges that I have used for the last few years and this one just feels different. It also passes the eye test as I seem to be getting more spin on the ball than I have before with the other wedges. Would like to know others thoughts on them. Thanks.

      In the golf club world, where most companies insist on renaming or launching a new name after one or two iterations of a club, to see a company stick with  a name into the 4th generation....well that must say something about the winning formula they have.   Below is a video from Cleveland Golf on it's RTX4 wedge. 
      Then  we have four members of our forum who are in the process of testing these wedges to see how they perform for their games. See their initial thoughts in the Stage 1 posts below, and follow their on course and on range experiences with them in this thread over the next 4 weeks or so.
      The Four Member Testers are:

      My son bought me a Ping g400 driver for christmas last year. Great club and I hit it way farther than my old BB, but only if I de-loft it to 9.5 (big minus setting), slow my swing down a bit and play it back in my stance (de-loft some more). Of course, anything other perfect timing and  its either snap hook or balloon like crazy. The shaft is an Alta 55 soft regular. I'm thinking this shaft is a little too soft for my swing (swing speed =95 mph). Here's where the bling squirrel comes in,  in Springfield ,IL your only options for anything Ping is Dick's or Scheels. Both are woefully lacking in any type of shaft to demo (each had 1 Alta in stiff only), so I'm here looking for any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

      I was previously playing with a taylormade R15 driver 10.5° for which I was hitting terrible 90% of the time(hooks, slices and short) . This was before I realised what shaft flex it was so when I checked the shaft I realised it was a L flex. I was able to trade it in for a stiff flex Titleist 915 D2 driver and this sorted my problems out. What flex shaft do you use? Do other shafts mess your tee shots up? Let me know 🙂

      Have been going through a complete overhaul of my bag the last 2 seasons. 
      Have upgraded Driver, 3 wood (both Cobra)
      irons just this year with some custom fit M5s
      now looking to upgrade wedges and putters
      Im about a 13 handicap. But have been always been a better than average putter. 
      Looking for a new Blade style putter. Read the recent testing review article but just wanted to see if anyone had any personal recommendations or feed back. 
      Wedges I am open to anything although I have been playing with a 56 and 60 degree last few years. 
      Thanks for reading and look forward to hearing what you guys have to say.
