Vokey Spin Milled, Mizuno MP T-11, or something else - 64*

6 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I'm looking at picking up another wedge for my bag. I think I'm going to go with a 64* this time. Currently I have the G-15 PW, Vokey SM 52, Vokey SM 58. I was looking at the 64 because of making a few mistakes lately while opening my club face on my 58*. I feel like it would be easier to just use a 64. I'm a Vokey fan, but have heard great things and read great reviews about the Mizuno. Does anyone have a recommendation on which one to get? Thanks.

i wanted to try a 64 - it was an experiment & didn't want to spend alot of money, so I picked up one from ebay ... there's a guy on there that sells brand new Dunlap blade type 64 wedges for about $15.     Very nicely made club - it's a cheap way to see if it works for  you before dropping big $$. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Dunlop-Tour-TP11-64-Wedge-w-Steel-Shaft-/140822658260?pt=Golf_Clubs&hash;=item20c9af3cd4

FYI - what I found out is even hitting the 64 square without opening it, you have to hit it too hard around the green to get it up in the air for my comfort level.     It's not all that hard to hit, but for me, it's a luxury club - don't have the room for it...

I took the plunge on a 64 for the first time this year, got a Callaway Jaws for a decent price. I believe there was a magazine test somewhere that gave a 64 wedge to a range of ability players and most (or all) of them scored better with it than a 56.... Surprisingly. My suggestion is it works best out of longer rough around the greens, where a firm hit i believe increases your margin for area compared to a lower loft. I suspect that a 64 is of limited use if you are mostly playing chip and run shots from the fairway, but out of difficult lies (with little bounce, 7 degrees), particularly from below the level of the green, I have definitely saved shots. Tp 11 is great btw.

I played one for a few years. Liked it a lot. Def felt that it was easier than opening up the face on my 60. I'd say go with the Vokey.

    • If true, kind of a telling article about his prepping for a job he supposedly wants.
      What will this mean if he gets the job, does he read briefings or will he only pay attention if the briefings are told with shadow puppets? each candidate will get at least 1 softball question.
      DT will bring up Hillary's email and Benghazi issue.
      HRC will bring up DT's Trump U!

      DT will say "the best" & "great" many, many times.
      HRC will use very specific names and policies, DT will counter will ripping his shirt open and screaming "I am great and huuuuge"!!!!!!

      I think in reality DT setting his sights low will win him the night. even if he does poorly, which he would not admit to, he can indicate that he is not a "career politician". 
      I am wondering how long it will take DT until he takes a jab at Bill, seeing as DT is unaware of his own moral and fidelity issues. I anticipate the debate turning into a POOP show, by the 3rd question!
    • I didn't vote. Not enough of an issue as explained. I have shared my views on slower than faster play on this site many times before. No need to get into that it again. 
    • Possibly your preferred shot shape is the draw? Just guessing from your last post. What you might do is get some face impact decals for irons and go to the range. After a brief warm-up, hit 10 shots each with 5i, 7i, and 9i. If the impact points are all over the face (which I doubt given your handicap), you might have a swing wobble. If the points cluster in one area, and its away from center face, you might need a tweak to your irons, such as shaft length or lie angle. Also, launch monitor session could give you specific data to combine with impact decal patterns.  If you have clean hit problems mainly with the 4i and 5i, you might consider softstepping these shafts. This would bring the FCM down to 4.9 for the two clubs (just a touch under 5.0 which is theoretically "average" R-flex), and would help with launch. Any other ideas from low-HDCPers? @Club Rat?
    • And this, boys and girls, is a good example of why we continue to have pace of play issues....
    • Safe to say firing his putting coach was the right thing to do, probably should of done it 6 months earlier.   1 2 May 2010 Quail Hollow Championship 72-73-66-62=273 −15 4 strokes  Phil Mickelson 2 19 Jun 2011 U.S. Open 65-66-68-69=268 −16 8 strokes  Jason Day 3 4 Mar 2012 The Honda Classic 66-67-66-69=268 −12 2 strokes  Tom Gillis,  Tiger Woods 4 12 Aug 2012 PGA Championship 67-75-67-66=275 −13 8 strokes  David Lynn 5 3 Sep 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship 65-65-67-67=264 −20 1 stroke  Louis Oosthuizen 6 9 Sep 2012 BMW Championship 64-68-69-67=268 −20 2 strokes  Phil Mickelson,  Lee Westwood 7 20 Jul 2014 The Open Championship 66-66-68-71=271 −17 2 strokes  Rickie Fowler,  Sergio García 8 3 Aug 2014 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational 69-64-66-66=265 −15 2 strokes  Sergio García 9 10 Aug 2014 PGA Championship (2) 66-67-67-68=268 −16 1 stroke  Phil Mickelson 10 3 May 2015 WGC-Cadillac Match Play 4 & 2  Gary Woodland 11 17 May 2015 Wells Fargo Championship (2) 70-67-61-69=267 −21 7 strokes  Patrick Rodgers,  Webb Simpson 12 5 Sep 2016 Deutsche Bank Championship (2) 71-67-66-65=269 −15 2 strokes  Paul Casey 13 25 Sep 2016 Tour Championship 68-70-66-64=268 −12 Playoff  Kevin Chappell,  Ryan Moore Look at the dates on his wins.  It looks like when he goes on to win a tourney he usually follows it up with one or two more shortly after.  Interesting....
