My trusty and beloved 56 degree Mizuno MPR Series wedge..................

10 posts in this topic

....has seen better days!   This is my favorite club in the bag (tied with the putter) which is why I've kept it so long.  This wedge has probably thrown more than 2 dump trucks loads worth of sand into the air during it's lifetime!!! It's been in my bag since 2008....RIP my friend!

I had 99yds to the pin......  I never saw the ball flight due to the distraction of the club-head flying off and scooting 25 yards along the ground in front of me.   I had no idea where the ball went.    ..........sure enough, the ball was on the green!  It's very last stroke was a GIR.  LOL....good thing I hit the "little ball" before the "big ball"! ;-)

I ordered this as a replacement online sight unseen.................

I trust you Mizuno....don't let me down!   I chose the white satin version and I hope it makes it to me by this weekend!!   I ordered it Monday evening so it will be close!!

I think you'll like the new one, very similar to the MP-R

For ~$30, that gem could look like new.  I had my late father-in-law's putter refinished (from the 1930s!).  Looks fantastic.

Naaaaa....I'm not THAT attached!!    LOL

Modern technology is good...IMO.   Unfortunately, I won't have it by this weekend.   I checked the tracking link, and it's not due to arrive until Tuesday.   I played today and used a1996 model year Tommy Armour Silver Scott 855!!   I hit it pretty well, but luckily didn't need to use it from the sand today.  I did use it for a couple full shots and several times chipping around the green.....my chipping as SPOT on!!

I bet not many many here can say they have played the same wedge for that long! I've had my 60deg vokey in the bag since 2009, hoping the shaft wont snap on me... I have no money for a new wedge yet!

Every club in my bag, except my driver, is from 2003. I definitely understand your attachment. The longer I keep them the more I understand the phrase "it's the Indian, not the arrow." Goodluck with your new wedge :beer:

Playing a wedge with fresh grooves is definitely noticeable!!  The ball is definitely coming back more with the replacement.  I love it......  it feels and looks great!!

Being a high ball hitter I've seen new sharp groove clubs stop the ball from rising and change distances a few yards.

    • It was fun to watch, Rory slowly moving up the leaderboard and with Chappell becoming a bit nervy on the final holes, Rory made it into a playoff. Rory didn't take full advantage of his shots on the par 5, and on the 15th I thought he had lost it. But great putts on the 15th and 16th to win in. What a fantastic golfer to watch, and he can smash the ball out there, almost hit his drive it in the lake on 18.
    • The length of the driving range is limited by houses and a road. So the ball flight is way shorter as with normal balls. So what reads 200 yards on the driving range in reality is much shorter. But I think this does not really matter for now. What I found out is the following. When doing my grip I twist my left wrist extremly to the right. At impact this delofts my clubs a big time. The head is very closed. The iron 7 I was talking about at least becomes an iron 4 loftwise ( i am judging this by eye on comparing to my other clubs). So now numbers maybe begin to make sense. Loftwise we are talking about an iron 4. What happens to the driver is that it even gets a negative loft which explains why balls just go up in the air with a very long tee. The 3 wood on the other hand gets the loft the driver should have. So this makes the longest shots. This is also explains why I had a very hard time hitting my hybrid. This hybrid (4 iron) becomes something like a club with loft 0.  So probably I am twisting my wrist to much ( there is a special term for this hand position which I don't remember). But this gives me 2 advantages. 1) I don't slice the ball with the driver 2) It is easier to hit down on the ball with the iron for me. Before this I had the wrist turned to the left (I think this is called neutral grip) which did not work at all for me. So I think in general this hand position helps a lot when not overdoing it. The V of the left hand index and middle finder should point to the right shoulder as far as I know. My V pointed right of my shoulder. I will tweak this position a bit. I think I am just overdoing it at the moment. I am pretty sure the iron 7 distance will get down when doing this and the driver distance will get up. We will see.
    • How many softball questions get lobbed at each candidate? How many times will Trump say "Believe me!" and "It's like incredible" the word "tremendous" and "Crooked Hillary" How many times Hillary will dance around the e-mail scandal? Will Hillary blow up? Will Hillary challenge Trump to do arithmetic? Or will that be out of bounds? It will be interesting to hear how lowering taxes on the rich and lowering corporate taxes will balance the budget - I've heard that whopper before. Will Trump challenge Hillary on the 2nd amendment? Will Hillary challenge Trump on his pandering to the religious right with the "freedom of speech and religion" proposal to allow discrimination against GLBT people.  Will either of them persuade me to not vote for Gary Johnson?
    • Haha, I've done that while walking.  The thing that made it embarrassing for me is I did it 2 or 3 times in the same round before I finally started catching myself.
    • I think there's a large old thread exactly like this already actually, just need to dig it up. Anyway, weirdest I've encountered was people rolling a cart.  I've also hit 2 geese myself (both with drives).
