Does Your Short Game Need Help?

 

The team at SCOR Golf has asked us to round up 5 MyGolfSpy Forum Members to test their 5 club scoring system.

 

When it comes to wedges...excuse me scoring clubs (because SCOR is about a lot more than wedges), SCOR might not be the household name that Vokey and Cleveland are, but as positive reviews build, and word gets out, it might very well be a matter of time before the golfing consumer starts to put his money behind the idea that scoring clubs are more important than the 10 more yards fantasy. When that happens...say goodbye to wedges, and say hello to the scoring set.

Why SCOR Golf

 

In the "arms race "for more distance, club manufacturers have sabotaged what SCOR believes is the most important part of your bag - the scoring part.

 

The scoring end of the set either hasn't evolved with the modern game, or has evolved poorly. Golfers everywhere have been forced to choose between 60 year old wedge designs and cavity back scoring clubs that make it more difficult than ever to control trajectory and distance with the high loft clubs.

 

The SCOR4161 scoring system, with patented SG3 progressive weighting design, proprietary shaft combinations, and dynamic V-Sole, mark the first meaningful innovation in the scoring game in 60 years.

 

Combined with SCORFit - SCOR's proprietary online fitting tool - SCOR delivers the complete scoring range package: A solution designed both for the modern game, and your individual game.

What You Get, What's Expected

 

The 5 readers chosen by the MyGolfSpy Staff will receive a 5 Club SCOR Golf Prescription (8 iron - lob wedge). Those same 5 readers will be asked to provide other MyGolfSpy readers with a comprehensive review of the SCOR system.

 

Thorough is what we do, and we ask the same of our readers. Please don't apply if you're not willing to do the work.

 

Can a 5 club scoring set replace your current short irons and wedges?

 

Does the SCOR4161 deliver on its promise of lower scores?

 

I don't know.

 

It's your job (at least it could be) to find out.

My current handicap index is 3.2

 

 

My SCOR fit perscription is

41, 45, 49, 53, 57

 

Length -0.25

Lie 3 degrees flat

Wrap + 1

Shaft Genius 12 R flex

 

 

Please note that while I currently bag two SCOR wedges they are outside my actual perscription. I would love the opportunity to try the entire system and to report on my results.

 

Thanks for asking us to enter and for your consideration. Good luck to all who are involved the process.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

I think I would be a perfect candidate for this job. Why? I hit the long ball and 95% of my shots in a round are with an 8I or less. The worst part of my game is "scoring"; I have a lot of 2 putt pars, when I should be stuffing it from short distance.

 

Thanks for the opportunity and consideration

 

Handicap - 4.1

My ScorFit prescription - 44*, 48*, 52*, 56*, 60*

 

As you can see, I have a hodgepodge of wedges; RBladez 50*, Wishon 55*, Snake Eyes 60*

Hi- this is BlueCheetah. I am an older guy (59) who is retired and golfs daily. My handicap is 18. My SCOR prescription is RH- 41,45,49,53,57- Genius 12, reg. flex. I would love to give this system a try and see if I could improve my scores with it. I wrote technical reports for a living as a presentence report writer for the courts so should be able to handle the writing. Thanks. P.S. my clubs are Adams Tight Lies.014.JPG

What a Great and I mean Great Promo guys... Leave it to the Guys at MyGolfSpy.com to push the Revolution Forward for us little guys!!!

It would be a great honor to participate in a test program like this! I am intrigued by the Scor Wedge Fitting System. Of course being the "Club Ho" that I am, buying new clubs and tinkering with things is not usually something I shy away from. However, tinkering in the "Club Ho" World is usually less worry some because your buying stuff that is easily flipped! In this case The ScorFit System has fit me for 5, F-I-V-E Clubs from 41*-57* and just buying them would be a costly "Ho'ing" experience, between $750 & $900 and because of everything being ScorFit, my worries are that others would not have the same need or the ability to afford the entire system suggestions at once! That is why this testing program is such a cool thing and would be even cooler should I be selected to participate in the testing...

 

Thanks so much for the chance, I look forward to being able to test the Scor Scoring Clubs and providing my fellow MyGolfSpy junkies a review that is in depth and informative enough to assist them in their future club selections, both from a play ability stand point and if it is worth the investment.

 

Here is what you need to know:

I am 6'2" 215# tanned & toned

USGA Handicap Index for the current Month is 2.9

I play at least twice a week, sometimes three days a week

I practice a minimum of three days a week, two days at the range and one day at home on short game, utilizing my Pro Putt Systems Artificial Putting & Short Game Green!

My current handicap is 15 I think a more consitant gap in my Scor ing clubs would help me a lot. I love the look of the Scor clubs and I would love to put them to the test. Thanks MyGolfSpy and Scor.

I'm an 11 handicap these days, but these may just be the ticket to single-digit-dom.

I am a 12 handicap playing Titleist 755. The reason I would be a great candidate for the testing is the first part of September I am taking a trip to Palm Springs to play a half dozen rounds in 4 days. I will be able to really put these scoring irons through the paces and gather a great sample to review on.

 

ScorFit Recommendation:

43 - 135-139

47 - 122-126

51 - 108-112

55 - 96-100

59 - 84-88

There are many reasons to bestow upon me the greatest of responsibility that is "Product Tester". But let's keep this reasonably short. To start with, this is my first post. Kudos to Scor for motivating me enough to actually put thumb to smartphone. What qualifications do I have that guaranty a first rate review? I'm 6'4", ruggedly handsome, well spoken, carry a 7 handicap and have the time to put those Scor beauties through the ringer. You want info? I get you the info. Plugged in fairway, left handed from treeline, flop over the porta potty, I got all those shots in the bag and more. And if all goes well, sweet pics of Scor at Pebble! Life is good, swing away. SCORfit Rx below. Thanks guys.

Adam HuckebyCurrent Handicap:3.4

Current Club setup : Mizuno mp59 and Cleveland 588 Wedges

5 club prescription from SF;LOFT

 

Mizuno MP-59

My current setup has treated me very well. I have knocked my handicap down from a 5.6 to the 3.4 it is today over the last few months and continue to improve. Most recently my focus has been drawn away from long game to the scoring clubs and attempt to knock down more pins. In working on this i have found that controlled swing for consistent contact were the things i needed to focus on and have progressed well up to this point. Now that I have more control over these clubs I've begun to notice things that the ScorFit system points out perfectly. My gaps are off in a few clubs and the difference in feel and weight from my PW to my Celvelands seems appreciable. I have been in and out to my local pro shop having my wedges bent here and there and actually made some progress on the gaps but they are still a little off.This would be an amazing opportunity. I'd love to get my hands on a set. Id put them through the paces on the local trackman,on the the range, and all the various lies they would need to prove themselves from against my current setup and others I have tried.

My current handicap index is +1.3

 

I feel as though my game would be perfect for testing the SCOR4161 Scoring System. In a typical round I'll attempt a variety of shots within the scoring zone (140 yards and in). My current schedule allows plenty of time to test these close range weapons and give honest and in depth feedback to the mygolfspy readers. The idea behind this scoring system sounds fantastic! Roger Cleveland has always been my #1 and trying something different to compare to an industry stalwart conjures interest.

I would be a great candidate for the Scor system as I currently use 4 wedges and play courses that give me a variety of wedge shots to hit. I travel throughout the western states and play many different conditions. I am playing elevations in Northern Nevada, the high deserts of Central Oregon as well as the target golf of Arizona.

I am long off the tee and end up with scoring irons in my hands for a lot of approach shots. I have been very interested in these and am happy to see they are now available for left handers ( a little love is always nice...).

I would be the perfect choice as I am one of the hardest golfers to fit....especially with the short irons!!

I am 6'6" tall and I am a 6 handicap. I have 5 sets of clubs and have tried tons of wedges. My biggest problem is my gap between distances (very inconsistent). I play twice a week and I can tell almost instantly whether a club is right for me or not as I have a consistent swing. I am also a social media Guru and if these work for me....you would see my positive reviews EVERYWHERE! If I can hit these and score with them....anyone can!
