What's your wedge game?

9 posts in this topic

I'm looking to get some new / used wedges over the holiday season.  I made some investments this year with a new iron set and an rbz driver.  Looking to tone down the spending and grab a 56 and a 60 this winter.  I hear alot about the Vokey's and some of the Cleveland's.  What do you guys use?  What's the best?

Vokeys are always great.

I actually have the Taylor made xFT wedges.  I absolutely love them.  They have a thin top line so look great at address, not to mention they play amazing.

I have a 50, 54 and 60 in them.  My 50 I just picked up in great shape used at roger dunn for 30 bucks.  They also have a changeable face on them.

These are them

My personal preference is the Bobby Jones wedges by Jesse Ortiz.  I play the "older" models, and haven't tried the newer ones.

I've played the new and the old.

The new have a pleasing grind made for versatility - Jesse calls it a "J" grind. Fine wedges with forgiveness and heft to quiet the hands.

I have some SM4 Vokey's - I've found the M grind on the 56-11 and 60-10 to work very well in all conditions for me.

I would suggest going to a place to "test drive" the your future wedges before purchase. The choices are very personal just as a putter that fits your eye.

I use a vokey 60, every hole I miss a green. I love it. I hardly ever use anything else. My sand and pitching wedge are part of my ping iron set. I tossed in the UW the last two rounds but only tried it twice. I can't complain about pings. They work very well.

Today I ordered 4 Taylormade ATV wedges. I tried them at a local club and hit about 100 balls from buried lies, sand, lush fairways and greenside pitches and chips. I thought these clubs were awesome and far superior to my old Cleveland wedges. ATV stands for all terrain versatility. My summer golf in Maine is much different than winter golf in Florida which have very different conditions. The ATV is ideal for my situation. Suggest you try them

I have recently purchased vokey sm4 52/56 with 8/10 bounce. Upgraded from 5-6 year old Cleveland and tm atv wedges. Impressed so far with workability and spin, but most the solid feel and look at set up. Wedges are super personal and you have to consider how they feel at full shot, pitches and the tricky flops and little bumps. Sm4 worked a treat for me all round

    • 1 Iron Golf Clubs
      So...finally broke 90 the other day....would have been better but for cored and sanded greens. Never struck the ball so well. Have been trialing the "Bobby Clampett" Impact Zone training, and focusing on a point forward of the ball...working a treat so far and my irons are way more solid. Time will tell whether it is a flash in the pan or a good move, but the range session are very encouraging. Played since xmas at all?
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Notice this comment ;)  Yea but he's been doing that since he's been in office. At least he hasn't wavered away from his agenda for how ever long he's been in office. He's not going to pass it. He's going to try.  Trump doesn't have an agenda except to his own ego. He doesn't care about America. He doesn't care about the American people. He's uses to screwing as many people over as possible. Heck, why not add Washington to the list.  For me I think Trump just sat back and thought, "you know what I can win the presidency." Then he's going about doing it. It's all about vanity nothing else.   
    • How Do You Decide Where to Play Golf
      This is a more difficult question for me to answer than it once was, so I selected "Other".   If I play locally, then I only have a couple of choices.  But this year I rejoined the Men's Club at my old home course, so that has now become my current home course even though it's a 2½ hour drive (about 150 miles).  I also play several other courses just as I feel like it, no one course by price because I can get varying deals at 30 or 40 Colorado courses with my Avid Golfer Passport.   A lot depends on how far I feel like driving, it may depend on when my brother drives down from Idaho to play for a few days, and it just depends on what I feel like.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Isn't Bernie doing the same thing?  He's leading a witch hunt against big business and the wealthy.  Do you really believe he's going to pass a 90% income tax on the wealthy, outlaw guns, provide better free healthcare, increase the minimum wage to $15+ country wide and provide free college to everyone? They are both snake oil sales people appealing to the lowest common denominators of their parties.  Bernie may be more sincere about his beliefs, but that could just mean he's crazier too.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      But that stat goes directly to Tiger's lack of longevity (to this point in time).  If he hadn't had the issues that he's had, he wouldn't have missed all of those recent starts.  I don't see how you can diss Jack for being competitive over a longer period, and then still making many starts (which attracted more money to the events just by his presence) after his competitive career was past.  I don't know what the numbers work out to age for age to the point when Tiger was no longer starting in Majors, but that has to be a more telling number.
