The only thing not safe in that pic is the club.

I'd love to see a video of someone making a full swing with that club! The ball may never come down. :bugout:

Lie angle's probably a bit off…

I'd challenge anyone to hit that well with a full swing, it would prob land behind you anyway!

Would such a 'homemade' club be legal?  Or must it be presented to USGA rules committee for a 'ruling'?

I'll need to look into the back of  the Rules Book and consider  the section on conforming clubs. i know drivers (15* or under) are regulated in various ways, ;putters too but am unsure of other clubs.  We know some guys load the putter head with lead tape or other weights so i guess that homemade remodeling is OK.

That's a horrific shank waiting to happen.

I like it. Also like the idea of a 73 deg wedge. I currently only have 13 clubs in the bag. Hmmmmmmmm.

The thing about a 74 degree wedge is that it seems to me like you'd lose just a little bit of versatility that I can still get in my 60* wedge. My 60* wedge has the back of the sole ground down so that the leading edge sits flatter with an open clubface, so a high shot isn't much of an issue, and I can also do more of a chip and run style shot without too much trouble. I can see where this would help players who can't consistently hit a shot with an open clubface, but it seems a pretty specific market to me since I would assume it would be quite difficult to hit this wedge in that chip and run style around the greens.

As for the wedge on a 3-wood shaft, I want to try that just for the sheer novelty. I expect it would take a bit of adjustment to get solid contact with it, but image the looks on the faces of your playing partners if you actually had it in your bag as a joke during a round. On the tee of a 130 yard par 3:

"What do you have in your hands, a 3-wood?"

"Nope, just my 60* wedge here. I've really gained some distance after my last lesson. Why, what're you hitting?"

"Uhhhhhhhhh..." *gulp* "Perhaps we ought to call off that bet we made earlier."

    • Thanks, makes perfect sense to me as it has been what I have worked on the past couple of months, and up until yesterday it wasn't something I had to really think about during the swing.  I'll hit the range sometime this week, hopefully it was just a bad day. And yes, been planning to get a My Swing Thread going, but was hoping to get back to where I felt my swing was late last year first. But that may not happen, so guess I'll try to get some swings recorded soon.
    • more offset if for the ones who can't close the face. for me i want less offset so i don't have to worry my ball hooking when i close the face. a lot of AM golfers aren't worry about trying to spin the ball with a GI irons, they are more into trying to smoke the ball as far as they can. and the most forgiveness they can get. but their are some guys who can spin the ball with a GI because they are using a softer ball which helps a lot and knows how to spin the ball. i think it's easier to hit a ball with a small face then a big face
    • I don't really feel that. I'm not working on anything that has to do with the elbow "dropping" at all. If anything I feel it driving outward (toward the ball) more as it comes down naturally. You should start a Member Swing thread of your own. Your elbow probably gets stuck around behind you too much. I'm exaggerating some things to help with my piece right now. It exits lower when I swing normally (even on a draw).
    • @iacas  two quick questions for you. On your transition into the downswing, what is your feel for when the club/hands/right arm/elbow drops?  I ask this because I had a horrific round yesterday, once I got to the top of my swing I was totally clueless, even went back to the range a few hours later, had no issues with wedges, but everything else stayed horrific.  I understand the lower body initiates the downswing, but for me it is more of a parallel move with my lower slide/rotation and my right elbow dropping.  I tried what I would call my normal swing and it just wasn't working, then I tried to only shift my lower body first, then tried the feeling of pulling my hands down and then out.  Regardless of what I tried it just didn't work, just lost all feelings when I got to the top.  Not looking for a magic pill here, just curious if you have a certain feel at this point in your swing. On your follow through, I notice your left arm stays high (inline with your shoulder line).  Mine is much lower when I finish my follow through, sometimes probably under my shoulder line. Is this just a difference in swings or is there a common fault that you see that may cause a lower follow through? Thanks!
