nike vr pro wedges? and wedge question

3 posts in this topic

i am looking into getting new wedges since right now i just use a 55 degree wedge from a 45 degree pitching

i have a 55 degree taylormade burner wedge so not forged

nike only makes a 52 56 and 60 degree wedge for left handed players in this model

i will only be buying 2 wedges

should i get a 52 and 56 then swap out my own sand wedge, or buy the 52 and 60, so i have a 52 55 60 set up

ive been told that i dont really need a 60 as it is just harder to hit and also makes one more decision to chose from when choosing which club

If the SW is a TaylorMade, chances are it's a little hotter than the Nikes. You might end up with some funny yardage gaps if you mix and match TM 55* with "Swoosh". See if you can find a demo day so you can hit the Nikes outdoors, and compare distances with your SW.

As for the 60*, some people can hit it and others can't. If you have a pro who knows your game, you might ask for advice on whether you need a 60*. Lots of golfers just hit cut shots with a SW rather than getting a 60*.

Do you think you have a gap in your short game right now? Or, are you trying to get up to 14 clubs to increase your options?

i ended up getting a 52 and 56 wedges

i found that i was always scared to use the pw (45) in close so id always pull out the 55, but fall short of the green, now with the 52 i should be right on

im swapping out the 55 and adding in the 52 and 56, i now have 14 clubs, but i carry both a 21 degree hybrid that i use for chipping around the green like a putt and a 21 degree iron (4iron in my set) so i can always swap one out if i were to add the 60 degree later on

    • It's a gauge or a standard used to measure where me game is with a large sampling of rounds. It's not the only method I use and it's not legit because I play so few rounds with others. The one advantage of it is that I don't get worked up about a bad round. So it helps in some small way to keep the game and efforts to improve enjoyable.
    • It has been quite a long time since I opened this thread. Back then I said "my swings seems correct" Well as many people already mentioned it was NOT. I am not topping or hitting the ball fat anymore (or very seldom) now. I changed many things in my swing. But I think here are the 2 important ones 1) Hit DOWN on the ball. I heard this many times before but could not really do it. Once I could do it my problem was solved. Try to work with a lot of lag and place your wirst way before your club during impact. Really overdo it now to get a feel for this. Try a half swing in really hit down on your ball as if you want to smash it into the ground. You won't believe it but the ball really flies this way ;) My swing plane was also way to steep. This maybe something you also could change. 2) Try to keep your posture and don't shift up your body when I you swing way back. I had this problem especially with my driver where the swing is really quite huge. Once your posture is stable your head does not really matter any more. Its automatically fixed as well. Still 1) is the most important point. 
    • had one yesterday, and whilst it hurt, it wasn't as bad as I thought. I will let you know if it works
    • Now, I know how something can work for one day and the next it all goes tits up, however I have now played two rounds and am hitting arrow straight drives. Driving has been the most inconsistent part of the game, as it is for many, so I am going to list what I now do to get the ball going straight. I feel confident that if any high handicapper follows these tips, they will be hitting straight drives MOST of the time. 1) A slow back swing    2) Don't try and hit the ball to hard 3) Hold the club at the base of the grip, unless you are very tall, then make sure you grip the club lower than you ever have done before. 4) Close the face of the club by about half an inch 5) Place the right foot half a foots length behind the left foot (right handed people) 6) Ensure your grip is correct I have watched many videos in frustration, because my slicing has been a big problem, and managed to acquire a combination of tips that are now working. So many pros make the science over complicated, and some make it to easy. The above 5 tips will work, I promise.
    • It's the B all and end all of golf. It's how my improvement and level of golf can be measured. I think people who don't hand their cards in so they can keep a high handicap, and thus win comps are kidding themselves.
