Titleist JP wedges is absurd


Recommended Posts

I can always understand the price analysis and cost/benefit analysis. I do it with everything as well.

 

The appeal comes in the forgiving milled camber sole design and internal manipulation of CG. He took what worked from the original designs and built a wedge, process and fitting system from the ground up. The cost is really factored into a golf experience. Three hours with a guy that designed the wedges and fitting system you're getting fit on, alone, at TPI. Then they're built by the same guy, for you, one at a time.

 

Definitely not the most cost effective option, but one of the most unique experiences in the game. There are many designers with a reputation of arrogance in the game. JP is the furthest from that descriptor which makes the experience and willingness to support the brand, that much easier. He treats the janitor with the same level of respect as he would the President of Golf Clubs at Titleist. He's genuine and it doesn't take long for people to recognize.

 

Will a set of these help your short game? Absolutely. Is it enough to make the trip and cost appealing to players? Not always. Completely understandable but I can attest the experience will not leave you questioning if your short game equipment is right for you.

I've been waiting for this thread to pop up.   This is like getting mad at luxury and exotic car makers for not producing cheap cars.   Spoiler alert: You're not in their target market

For the life of me I've never understood the concept of the "average golfer" or the " common golfer."   So this is $2k for the experience, it is what it is. It doesn't mean you can't buy, or OEM'

How anyone can make a judgement about these wedges without hitting them is beyond me...     I'm gonna quote Steve Martin. "Criticize things you don't know about. Be Oblong and have your knees remove

Of course he's not arrogant- he's from Minnesota!

I completely agree with you there Buddy, but the biggest problem for these wedges, particularly from the standpoint of the usual golfer, is the price. It's US$2000 for the 3 wedges!!!! Sure, if you've got the cash give it a go, but my question for that would be "are these wedges worth the price gap over a decent Callaway/Titleist/TM/Cleveland wedge??" 

 

The only reason why I'd spend that much money on 3 clubs is if I would hole out every time I hit them.

to each their own.   I personally wouldn't do this,  but I liken it to Tyson Lamb and non OEM Cameron putters.  At least with these you get a fitting to ensure the clubs meet your needs.

I play golf with several gentlemen that could afford to get these.  Thing is...it wouldn't help any of them.  I'd wager that if you are good enough to see an improvement then you are most likely on tour and therefore could get them for free.  Buying a Ferrari won't make you drive like Andretti, but plenty of people still like to pretend.

People will spend their money at they see fit. I'm in no position to tell others how they should spend their own cash.

 

I imagine it'd be a hell of an experience.
