Almost ever iron discussion I've been reading is hating on blades on the site and I agree that my game is not yer ready for them. But I am hitting my Vokey wedges really well was thinking about grabing a 47* to replace my standard PW. Is this common becuase I don't see that many options out there?

This may be ill advised by some but I would go with blades as far up in the set as you can. I hit my 8i blade as good or better than my dads cavityback. To each their own but I enjoy the control I have with blades in my 8-pw.

I just use the PW that came with the set.  I tried a 47* Mizuno wedge once and it didnt work any different than any other pitching wedge Ive ever owned.

All the wedges I use are part of the set (Diablo Edge) now except a 60* lob wedge (not offered) which is out of the bag for now.  I tried using Cleveland wedges for everything except PW and the weight difference and look was too big a difference for me to hit them consistently on the course.

My PW is the one that came with my set... I've never bought a different type of PW to use.  I don't think that it'd hurt to chance to a different PW but I don't really see the point.  Depending on the clubs you have, a 47 degree might actually fit in between your current PW and your next wedge (GW or SW or whatever).  Many sets, especially GI clubs have pretty strong lofts now with the PW being as strong as 44 degrees.

The PW from my set.  Granted, 3 of my 5 sets have blade PWs, and the 4th is nearly a blade, so there you are.

I play Bridgestone J36 combos, and the 9-iron and PW are a standard blade.

I had a set of Taylormade RAC TP's, which had a rounded out/milled 48* PW in the set that was absolutely money. It matched their RAC wedges but was forged. I was very tempted to keep that club when I sold the irons, but breaking up the set is a messed up thing to do IMO...

I've been interested in getting a custom PW (Scratch/Vokey, etc.) made similar to that Taylormade.

My viewpoint: With ever stronger iron lofts, the PW is a much "10-iron" for full shots as a wedge. I use the 46* PW which came with the iron set, and hit it full, for partial pitch shots, and for greenside chip and run out of the short rough.

I would suggest that someone who uses the PW mostly for partial pitch shots might be more likely to swap out the stock PW for a custom wedge.

As with most of the others, my PW is from my iron set. Currently that means that it's a 48' Miura baby blade. I see no reason to replace it with anything else, it's a fantastic wedge. In fact, I would love it if I could get a 52' baby blade to replace my dedicated GW.

Thanks for all the feedback, I think I'll stick with my current stock wedge and keep using my GW for the more finese type shots.

My MB PW feels like it might as well be a custom wedge, it plays the same in my comparisons.

Depends on your set. I would agree with some of those above...with golf courses playing 'shorter' due to better equipment and balls...a  PW is a #10 iron for most guys. I don't use my pitching wedge today in the manner I used a PW when I was growing up playing golf 20 or more years ago. I use the PW from my set...but if I had a GI set, I might not.

I agree with the above poster that you should hit players clubs as far up in the set as you can handle. For most recreational players, that stops with their wedges if they can at all. It's up to you. The only advantage to buying a Vokey or whatever as opposed to using a wedge from your set is feel and control, but that comes at the expense of game improvement features.

Use my S58 wedge, which I think is 48 degrees, really like the feel of that set of clubs and the wedge.

    • I usually like to tee my ball 2" below waist high.
    • Nadir is technically correct but fairly arcane; I've never heard anyone refer to the lowest point of the golf swing as the nadir. I used the term "apex' because in racing it refers to the inside point of the racing line in a turn at which you're closest to the curb. The orientation of hands to clubhead at impact does make a difference. However, the naive solution to being told you're leading the club with the hands is to release your wrists earlier, and done even a little too early this results in "casting" the club which wastes most of the power of the downswing. So, you have to be real careful telling someone who's keeping his wrists too stiff to "release more".
    • Actually, I was just looking back through the old Bulls goalies and there are a bunch of familiar names. Early on you had Doug Dadswell and Sandy Galluppo. Both those guys played for the Cyclones and Sandy had a stint with Dayton before Birmingham. You were one of the many, many stops for old Kalamazoo goalie Mike Torchia, a Michelin man-looking guy that I saw play the Cyclones many times. Last but certainly not least was my old BG buddy Shawn Timm. He played a miserable 15 minutes in goal for the Bulls after his senior season with the Falcons. Gave up three goals and became an investment banker. Great memories.
    • It might not have been the security guards who suggested paying for the damages. He gave them ~ $50 cash. He wasn't 'shaken down', taken to an ATM, relieved of watch, electronics, etc. In the U.S. there is such a thing as a citizen's arrest. It's possible that in Rio some licensed private security guards may be deputized in some way with partial powers to detain for arrest. Every time Lochte's lawyer responds to a media inquiry with 'no comment' it's billable time. If they decide to answer the charges with local representation the money bleed will accelerate. I'm positive paying the donation in lieu of fine in the short term like his teammate did would have been less costly. It would have been even less costly ~ $50 if he had kept his trap shut in the media having already narrowly avoided an official 'on the books' detention / arrest / fine. http://www.people.com/article/ryan-locht-summoned-brazil
    • So an actual player. Yeah, its tough to turn any coach's head at that kind of weight. UAH must have been fairly early in their program (at least at the Div. I level) at that point to.  I was 12 or so before I even discovered hockey (again the Bombers) and didn't learn to skate until is was 15. Besides that I'm about as athletic as a wet sock, so never played anything other than drop-in type stuff. There was a train-wreck of a rec league I played in at Bowling Green. We were the scraps left over and it showed. If ever manage to curtail my over-fondness for beer and drop about 30 lbs, I might give drop-in another go.
