Tim - Windsor, Ontario, Canada
Cleveland 588 RTX 52-56-60
I'm working intensely on my short game this year.  I feel like I'm better than my handicap from 100 yards in.  My strengths would be chipping and pitching within 30 yards from fairways and light, consistent rough.  Weaknesses would be bunker play, especially the longer ones, hitting from deeper rough and spin control from all situations. 
HDCP - 9

Rick A is 69 years of age and plays five times per week here in Peachtree City, Georgia. I play to a5.5 index, but once the Bermuda grass starts growing that will go down to a 1 or 2. I currently play with Callaway MacDaddy wedges 50-54 and 58.

I'd love to test the Hogan wedges and review them for Golf Spy. Thanks.

Adam/Connecticut
Vokey 52/56/60/64
Short game strengths/weaknesses: I'm very, very reliant on my wedges from 125 yards and in. They're my most used set of clubs, I practice them the most and how I do with them dictates my score. I landed on Vokeys (which I really like) after trying older Hogans (pretty good), Mizunos (good) and Ping (disappointing).
Current handicap: 10

Used to be money with the wedges as I was a higher handicap and usually took three shots to get to a par 4 hit a lot of good shots in from a 100 yards. But as I got longer with my driver it took out a lot of those shots and now coming in with mid to low irons instead so have lost a lot of tough with those wedges. Trying to get those wedges back. I'm still very decent with a bunker shot if there is enough sand in the bunker and little bump and runs have become a lot better.
Current handicap - 10.4
