True Temper brings back the Spinner wedge shaft!

Unbelievable. They lock down the grooves and then shaft companies get into the fight. I used to have Spinner shafts in all my wedges so I'm very excited about this. Not excited about the fact that Rory is gaming it. Even when he does a regular interview, he borders on being a tool.

I had a Spinner in a 60. It was fun to mess with at the range, but I felt like the extra spin made it a bit too unreliable in the wind and it wasn't really necessary on full or half shots for me. Totally fun around the green though.

My buddy and I were just having a laugh about this the other day. We can't spin a wedge back to save our lives and that is with the non-conforming grooves.

 

Where does that leave us when we go conforming? We'll probably have to land it 10 yards short of the green and let it roll on up there.

I recall reading/hearing a Tour pro say, "Nobody ever made money backing up a golf ball." The only shot that I backed up in Myrtle was backing up away from the hole.

He just said that to keep the rest of us down.

Have you guys hit an MD grooved wedge from Callaway? It's almost impossible to NOT spin it.

 

i agree and almost impossible to not chew a ball up with it.

 

picked up a new one the other day, a PM grind. Great sole.....grooves are crazy. almost too much IMO

I like my balls too much.

True enough, they do eat, that's for sure. I would like to get one of these Spinners in my 64* JAWS.

 

That would be a potent combination. On a flop shot the ball could jump up, hit you in the nose, then back up down your torso and end up right back where it started.

I saw the 64* X Vintage with MD Grooves in Golf Galaxy the other day on sale for $80 and I thought about pulling the trigger on it. I don't think I would seriously consider taking one of the clubs out of my bag right now in favor of a 64* but it would be fun to mess around with on the range and the short game practice area.

I've been wanting to bag a 64* for a while now and just haven't pulled the trigger. I'm in the same situation, I don't know what I'd pull out. In truth, I could probably live without my 3W, but I do like to have it there when I want to go for a par 5 in 2.

So Adam Barr is no longer with the Golf Channel, eh? Not a big fan so TGC just got taken up a notch in my book.

+1. TGC seems like they've cleaned house lately. Got rid of Inga Hammond (IIRC) which is a huge plus.

 

Now that I've said that I'm going to have to read 10 posts saying "They've got to fire Kelly next" which will make me sad. I love Kelly, she's a Duke girl.

I'd probably take out my 5 wood or 4 iron. I love my 3 wood too much to remove it.

Inga Hammond was eye candy - nothing more.

 

I actually think Kelly is highly under-rated and one of the best on-air personalities there. One of the networks would snatch her up in a minute if TGC cut her loose.
