New Letter on a Pitching Wedge!


Recommended Posts

I picked up a pitching wedge the other day that has me a bit confused.  It is a Team Daiwa 153ms-02, which I guess is a model number.  It has 53 degrees stamped on the back of the club face, but on the sole where is identifies the type of wedge it is, it does not have the letter P, but the letter F.  First time I've ever encountered this letter on an iron.  Can anyone tell me what the F is supposed to mean?  Appreciate it!

Back in the day they used to have F Wedges or Fairway Wedges. Basically an old school gap wedge. 52 degrees...ish. 

 

It could also be f grind I suppose.

I think @ChetlovesMer is exactly right that the F is for "fairway" wedge and it's another name for a gap/approach/utility wedge that fits between the pitching wedge that is usually 46-48 degrees and the sand wedge that is 56 give or take.

But it seems that is not the only unusual thing about that particular set.  I googled it and found a set on ebay and it doesn't have a pitching wedge either but rather a "10 iron." 🙂

I love the 10i language :-) I mean, what the hell. Why not just go 2i through 13i!?

Interesting. I've never seen an "F" wedge before, but that makes sense.

I remember on the old Cleveland sets the equivalent was a "D" wedge, although I don't remember what the D stood for.

My favorite club as a teenager was a hand me down wedge from my dad that I used everywhere.  Pretty sure it was Titleist and it was called a Dual Wedge - so that would be my guess on the D.

Yup. That's it. Dual Wedge.

Thanks!

Wedges typically used to have distinct design features that differentiated a wedge from an iron.  These days, any club with a high loft is called a wedge.

One of my golf dreams is to play a high quality round, on a course where the right strategy calls for regular use of clubs between driver and 4i, with driver, putter, and irons, 2i through LW :-D

    • You can do this even better with Game Golf or Arccos. Handicap doesn't tell much.   Gotcha. Common.   LOL nice
    • Wow, 2014! Time flies... This would probably be easier now than it was for me seven years ago.
    • I mean I would, but of course I don’t own a knife sharpener 😃
    • I never use my handicap in any form other than a barometer of where my game is at in combination with all the other stats I keep. I never play in anything where MY handicap is used. My league keeps a "handicap" (that's far from a legit) and they do net scores simply because so many people in the league are terrible and its just for fun so they're trying to keep it competitive but when I am playing with my friend group its always gross and we're generally playing anything other than stroke play.  Favorite game is one I actually "invented" I call it Fu*k You. Alternate shot match play (or just match play if it's a two-some but alt shot is more fun) where you get 3 mulligans and 3 call backs per side. So if you hit a bad shot obviously you can use a mulligan but if your opponent hits a good shot you can go "fu*k you, hit it again" and they have to try to duplicate the shot. Both cannot happen from the same spot though, there's a max of 2 shots per spot if you use a mulligan your opponent cant recall the mulligan and if they recall your first shot you cant mulligan your second. Super fun and a lot of strategy involved. 
    • Billy, no, but there are sometimes snakes, although Ihaven't seen any personally but I've seen LOTS Of twisted sticks on the ground that have scared the crap out of me -- i don't know if that counts or not?  Also, there is a bat tree on the front nine in Lusaka, it is a huge tree and has enormous bats in it for half the year (then they migrate). So, that's cool!
