Hey guys I'm thinking about sending my 4 vokey wedges (46,50,56-changing to 55,60) to wedgeworks and getting the shafts changed out as well as the lengths and lies changed to match my irons. I was fitted for my regular AP2 irons as 1* flat and. 5" short on ns pro 105t shafts. My question is should I try to match the wedge shafts with my irons? A problem that comes up though is vokey wedgeworks only provides kbs, dg, and px shafts. Is there a shafts that they provide that's similar to the ns pro shafts I'm currently gaming on my irons? Thanks a bunch guys! Lee

I sent my vokeys last month to Wedgeworks to get the same thing you're interested in.  They did a phemoninal job and their customer service outstanding.  Every question I had was answered via email within 24 hours (usually faster) with detailed responses.  I would email them about your shaft question.  I'm sure they can help you out.

Using the same shaft as your irons will provide you with a better feeling wedge for full and 3/4 shots but often times less feel on the short greenside shots. It will typically lower the flight a little, and lower the spin a little. Going with a designated wedge shaft can improve the feel on less than full shots and increase the spin, but full shots can feel soft or launch real high. I'm not sure if Wedge works offers it, but Nippon makes a wedge shaft that should play similar to the iron shafts, but improve the feel and spin around the green. I play PX Flighted in my irons, and I personally didn't care for the DG shafts that are in most wedges. I was looking for something that felt a little more like my irons. One suggestion I heard from several people/sites was to take an 8 iron shaft and butt trim it to the wedge length. This would provide wedge shaft characteristics on the same shaft thats in my irons. Others recommended to try one of the wedge specific shafts (DG spinner, Rifle spinner, KBS Hi-Rev, Nippon Pro WV). I didn't care for the DG or KBS and couldn't find a Nippon to try near me. Settled on the Rifle spinner and I'm very pleased with it. Great feel and spin around the green, yet still stiff enough so I don't lose feel on full shots.

Thanks guys! I called wedgeworks and they can custom fit the same shafts on my wedges. Seems like 95% of tour pros match their iron shafts to their wedges so it's probably the best idea and at most take a softer flex. Thanks again

    • My home course closes its range for maintenance Monday mornings or Tuesday if a holiday falls on the Monday. The sign indicates they re-open by 1 p.m.  That makes sense for them. It's always a busy course, but evening leagues are really big business.  Closing at 3 p.m. seems a bit odd to me, but if that suits the course's clientele, that's what they'll do. I hate mats.  We usually get stuck with the damn things after October. It is a much better thing that the course close the range for a brief period of time once a week and keep the turf up to snuff.    
    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.
