I've been playing almost a year now (end of June is when I bought my first set of clubs) and finally broke 100 this past Monday. As a reward and also to help improve parts of my short game (especially getting out of some of those deep bunkers) I decided to look at buying a lob wedge around 60 degrees (also a suggestion from my instructor) since my most lofted club in my bag was currently a 55 degree SW. To start I was looking for something used because I originally didn't want to drop the money on a brand new wedge or get fitted for one but then after rereading MyGolfSpy's Most Wanted Wedge for 2018, I noticed the Tommy Armour Over N' Out listed as a Best Value Wedge. Not only that, but it ranked 2nd in Accuracy. After playing with the Tommy Armour Impact Series No. 3 Alignment Putter over the past 2 weeks and falling head over heels for it, I decided to go out and pickup the Tommy Armour Over N' Out wedge. I had Golf Galaxy add a 0.5'' length to the club and it is ready to be placed in my bag for the weekend. 

I'm not sure home much use it will get on my two rounds scheduled this weekend but I am definitely going to head out to the range / chipping greens / practice bunkers over the next few weeks to dial it in and get a real sense for what this club can do for me. I'll definitely come back to this post to provide my progress, feedback, and review of the Tommy Armour Over N' Out wedge. Until then, here are the pics of the new wedge and please let me know if you have had any experience playing with Tommy Armour Over N' Out wedge.

Nice.  I"ll be interested in hearing how it works for you.    

I am kind of surprised though that an instructor suggested you go with a 60 degree wedge at that playing level...which to be fair is right about my level as well.   60 degrees can be the toughest club in the bag to hit consistently, you have to be aggressive with them and have no fear.   

I understand a 58 may have been too close to your 55, but I might have gone with a 58 and maybe had the 55 bent to 54.  

But either way, keep us informed on how it goes.    TA seems to be making some quality equipment that a lot of people are finding helps their games.

After 3+ weeks of practicing and playing with the Tommy Armour Over N' Out (2018 model), I can definitely see why it was rated 2nd in accuracy and as one of MyGolfSpy's Most Wanted Wedges for 2018. 

Once I was able to spend multiple range / chipping sessions with this wedge, it has instantly become my new favorite club to use around the greens and for shots within 60 yards. Since adding the wedge to my bag, I've recently recorded my best 1 putt(s) round and a lot of that was due to being able to get on the green with accuracy and park the ball close to the hole with this wedge. I've also have hit a few chip-ins and a lot of shots that rolled / landed less than a foot from the hole.

The biggest difference I've noticed in the the Tommy Armour Over N' Out is my ability now to put backspin on the ball (currently playing Kirkland Signatures which based off of MyGolfSpy's Ball Test, has a high spin around the green). Not that the backspin wasn't there with my SW (55 degrees), GW (50 degrees), or PW (45 degrees), I'm just able to put more on my shots with this wedge allowing me to park the ball in tight places. Another benefit it has provided me is the ability to hit higher lofted shots out of green side bunkers. I spent half of one of my golf lessons working on bunker shots with my instructor and now feel wayyy more confident than I ever had hitting shots out of the bunker. 

I'll definitely come back and provide some more feedback as I play with the Tommy Armour Over N' Out throughout the summer but if anyone was looking for a cheap lob wedge to add to the bag that is great quality, I could not recommend this wedge enough as it has done wonders for my short game and confidence so far!

How do you set up and play the Tommy Armour Out N In sand wedge? For example: ball position, open stance, open club, swing path?

I just bought the 2019 Over N Out 64 degree wedge and absolutely love it. Probably my favorite club in my bag right now.
