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 wonder how far back in your stance the ball would need to be...

That's a horrific shank waiting to happen.

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."
