🤦♂️...What a dumb post. Take a look at the handicaps posted by the members here. Do you really think 97% of the people on this forum will ever be playing at the highest level in state/national, amateur or professional tournaments? Every time somebody comes on here with different swing instruction, they are attacked, and end up leaving the forum. There should be a disclaimer when joining here that states, "Don't bother with any ideas unless the long standing members agree with them".
I guess they are just sold on line because I never see the 3 or 4 piece ball in the Costco near me. They do carry the Callaway Hex ball at a nice price but I don't know anything about them. I bought two dozen, figured I would give them a try. With my handicap I can't really tell the difference in balls anyway, I just know I'm not paying $4 a ball.
I had bought the Kirkland 4 piece ball before and played them, they were OK but I lost them all to the woods or water, some in the open rough.
It's really just a gimmick. The reason why most wedges don't have grooves all over the face is because you don't make contact with the face in those areas. If you are, then you have bigger issues than a lack of spin and you should probably be looking at something more forgiving like Cleveland CBX. I know if you open the face and take a full swing you may miss out on the high toe more often, but I don't think I have ever made contact on those parts of the face. This is just TaylorMade and Callaway trying to steal a little more market share from Titleist Vokeys.
