Tom Pennsylvania

Ping glide 1.0 stock shafts 2* up lie

Shortgame tends to be my strength since I practice it a lot in my yard. I can play multiple lies from the grass but my weakness is in the bunker so I tend to practice it a lot and have seen improvements.

I wouldn't have applied for these, I've got a set of Hogan TK wedges waiting, thought I'd leave them for someone else to review. Interested to see how they compare to the Scor and TKs if any of the selected reviewers have tried either of those.

Glen In michigan

Scor 4161 (60, 53, 47, 41)

SG strength is chipping - the shorther shots around the green. Weakness is pitching - when I get further away from the green (40 to 100 yds) I struggle to knock shot close consistently.

H-cap is 8.1
