Play three wedges Gap 52 Mac Daddy Callaway, 56 Degree also Mac Daddy and a 60 degree Titliest Vokey
I have pretty good touch from immediately around the green not including bunkers (weaker) and then sometimes struggle on that 50/60 yd half shot. Obviously need to play more.
Current Handicap is index 4.7, 5 handicap at Highfield Gold Club

I'm Alex from Massachusetts. I've been a Hogan fan since I started using my Uncle's hand-me-down Hogan Producers and Apex IIs as a kid. I used Hogan clubs right up until I bought my recent set of Callaways. Would LOVE to put some Equalizers back in my bag. That name was always one of my favorite things about Hogans.


I go with the four-wedge offense:
Pitching Wedge: 47 degree Callaway RAZR X forged. Gap Wedge: 51 degree Callaway RAZR X forged (both part of my overall set of irons). Sandwedge: 56 degree Cleveland RTX 3.0 black satin. Lob Wedge: 60 degree Nike VR forged raw

Short game strengths/weaknesses:

My weakness, like most amateurs, is out of the sand. Other than that, I'm pretty decent from 30 yards in. In fact, my short game often makes up for an inconsistent iron game.

Current handicap: 5

WITB: Callaway Epic driver, Titleist 915 3W, Titlest 818 3 & 4 hybrids, Callaway Apex Pro (2016) 5-GW, Vokey 56 SW, Callaway Mac Daddy 60 LW, Odyessey Triple Track Double Wide putter

Randy, UT

TK15 50, 54, 58 Tour V 110 S shafts
Full Lob wedge is a very consistent 105 yds.  I've had lots of trouble under that.  Working on the Pelz system and I am making significant improvements, but a half lob still goes 50yds.  So I am still left with a gap from 50 down to the fringe.  I end up having to take too much off the swing in that range and I have ended up with some chunks or overhits.  I feel like the TK15s have helped with the chunking, but I don't collect data down to that level with GolfShot.
Current handicap - 8.9


Hopefully one of the lucky 4 can put these up against the "old" TKs to give some real world comparisons of the V-Soles on each!
