Still loving my Tk15s in 48, 52, 56, and 60 so I will pass on this one. However, I will be an interested observer with an eye on future upgrades! Can't say enough good things about the Ft. Worth 15s and TKs - thrilled to see Hogan presenting another offering and giving MGS the chance to review! Good luck to the entrants. Really looking forward to this one!

I have been playing the customized Callaway wedges I won on your golf site 6 years or so ago!  They are getting worn down. (52,56,60)

         Don't really use the 60 much, prefer to open up the 52.

Weakness:  tend to hit fat approach shots with the higher lofted clubs (50-90 yards)

Strengths:  pretty good with the soft chip shots from 15 yards or so, can hit soft or run out options.

Current index: 10.1

My short game strengths include solid and consistent contact and carry for half wedge shots.  I am able to land the ball consistently close to my target distance.  My weakness is that I cannot produce enough spin to prevent the ball from rolling 5-8 yards.  I am currently working on trying to increase the "stopping power" of my wedges so that I can land the ball 1-2 yards short of the flag so that it will check next to the pin.
3 handicap

Callaway X Forged 52°/56°/60°


Short game is my strong point. However I can improve on chip shot from around the green. Would love to see how those feel and how well they shape and releases the shots.
