The only thing not safe in that pic is the club.

I'd love to see a video of someone making a full swing with that club! The ball may never come down. :bugout:

Lie angle's probably a bit off…

I'd challenge anyone to hit that well with a full swing, it would prob land behind you anyway!

Would such a 'homemade' club be legal?  Or must it be presented to USGA rules committee for a 'ruling'?

I'll need to look into the back of  the Rules Book and consider  the section on conforming clubs. i know drivers (15* or under) are regulated in various ways, ;putters too but am unsure of other clubs.  We know some guys load the putter head with lead tape or other weights so i guess that homemade remodeling is OK.

I like it. Also like the idea of a 73 deg wedge. I currently only have 13 clubs in the bag. Hmmmmmmmm.

The thing about a 74 degree wedge is that it seems to me like you'd lose just a little bit of versatility that I can still get in my 60* wedge. My 60* wedge has the back of the sole ground down so that the leading edge sits flatter with an open clubface, so a high shot isn't much of an issue, and I can also do more of a chip and run style shot without too much trouble. I can see where this would help players who can't consistently hit a shot with an open clubface, but it seems a pretty specific market to me since I would assume it would be quite difficult to hit this wedge in that chip and run style around the greens.

As for the wedge on a 3-wood shaft, I want to try that just for the sheer novelty. I expect it would take a bit of adjustment to get solid contact with it, but image the looks on the faces of your playing partners if you actually had it in your bag as a joke during a round. On the tee of a 130 yard par 3:

"What do you have in your hands, a 3-wood?"

"Nope, just my 60* wedge here. I've really gained some distance after my last lesson. Why, what're you hitting?"

"Uhhhhhhhhh..." *gulp* "Perhaps we ought to call off that bet we made earlier."

      Ive recently gone from a belly to a 34" putter. Really liked the the belly putter but struggled with distance control. after practicing with the short putter i seem to have more control. Will be keeping the belly though for when i get a older or the back starts to protest!

    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      No problem.  I'm not tired of responding to sincere and thoughtful posts, like yours, even if it rehashes stuff from before because OF COURSE it is unrealistic to expect people to read 3000 posts before commenting.  In any case I have that quote in a file and it was simple to post it - much simpler and politer than saying "go find it , it's here."  I DO think that one should maybe at least read a smattering of such a big thread before jumping in,   But I have no patience whatsoever with the "I saw Jack play" and "he was nice at a clinic" type posts or posts by people who try to claim some special credibility because of some entirely personal subjective connection.  But that isn't you. As to the rest, you asked for the exact quote and I gave it to you.  If you want to argue with what he said, that is another matter and does not concern me, since my position is that even if we, arguendo, say that the field strengths did NOT get better, Tiger's career was so much more dominant than Jack's that it doesn't matter.  I don't NEED to make a stronger field argument to make the case that Tiger dominated golf in a way and to an extent that no other golfer has ever dominated golf.  And he did it for 15 years (after an absolutely unprecedented career as an amateur) which, IMO, is long enough that it no longevity argument could overcome the sheer dominance advantage his career embodied.   The fact that all that is true in the face of field strength increasing is just icing on the cake.   
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Excellent. Thank you for re-posting that quote. Sorry to hear you're tired of rehashing. Why not just let the thread die then? Is the expectation that folks will read all 272 pages before making a comment? That strikes me as an unrealistic expectation.. I agree the tour is tougher than it used to be. I consider the differences more incremental than astronomical...not the 'order of magnitude' range that seems to come through in some comments. I think Jack is both being accurate in assessing his perception of a shift in quality, but also exaggerating for effect or experiencing present-day myopia at the very least about the money. $100 in 1962 money would be ~ $800 dollars today. Not exactly what I would call bus fare. The 'paltry' $100,000 had the buying power of about $800,000 in today's dollars, which is ~ 60% of today's average purse and ~ 30% of the Players' purse).. Most Americans would happily take an annual salary like that today. They weren't getting ditch digger wages. The prize money even then definitely attracted keen competitive interest. Clearly purses have also grown more than inflation and even journeyman make more in a year than the top 10 in 1962 (below), but it seems about in line with the growth of the population of golfers in the U.S. itself - about triple since Jack's day, Endorsement money has definitely gotten bigger, as the tour and the golf marketplace have developed and expanded over time.   Rank       Player                  1962 $                   2015 $ 1            Arnold Palmer        $81,448                 $639,223 2            Gene Littler           $66,201                 $519,562 3            Jack Nicklaus         $61,869                 $485,563 4            Billy Casper            $61,842                 $485,351 5            Bob Goalby            $46,241                 $362,910 6            Gary Player            $45,838                 $359,748 7            Doug Sanders        $43,340                 $340,143 8            Dave Ragan          $37,327                 $292,951 9            Bobby Nichols       $34,312                 $269,288 10          Phil Rodgers          $32,182                 $252,572
