Exactly! That loft number is all you need. The fact that one OEM calls it an Approach Wedge and another calls it a Gap Wedge is irrelevant. For me, I need a 50 degree wedge; then I know what to do with it.
OEM’s are in business to sell golf clubs, period. If you think they have some altruistic motives as well, you have probably drunk the koolaid.
What would happen to the bad putter? He makes a few more but maybe his bad misses that get knocked off line even further cause him to 3 putt a percentage of them? I know probably not from 5 feet, but if you apply the logic to all putts and not just 5 footers?
Focused here on making clubhead go more up and right post impact, it's been a bit low and left lately as evidenced by videos above. Steep from the top, grrrr. Keys #4 and #5 are hard. There's a swing alignment stick in the sky, lol.
