All of the controversy over the Anchored putting ban got me to thinking about the last battle when they changed the rules on grooves. There was at least as much crying and hand-wringing over that as there is about the putting ban. But there was one difference, and that is that the groove rule allowed wedges manufactured before 1/1/2011 to still be made with the larger grooves, and club level players are still allowed to use them until 2024 unless playing in a competition in which the conditions disallow them.
At the time of the change, a lot of players swore that they were going to stockpile a supply of the old wedges to last them until the ban when into effect. What I'm wondering is how many of us actually followed through on that commitment? And how many are still using the old large groove wedges? By the way, it's a fallacy that the the new grooves are all V-grooves. The only thing that was changed was the allowed width, spacing, volume, and edge radius. They are still allowed to be "square", but not as deep or to have the sharp edges.
I have two pre 2011 wedges, not because I made a point of getting them, but because I don't change out my wedges as often as many do. I just happened to have bought them before the change. Mine are a Cleveland CG 15 56° and a Titleist Vokey 54°.
So, do you still have some large groove wedges?
