Benross Hot Speed 25 degree hybrid - ordered from my Mum! And I really WANT a new driver (perhaps don't NEED one - but the force of the dark side is strong...)

I didn't ask for any and likely won't get any. I will give my 5-year-old daughter a sleeve of pink Callaway balls, though.

Hoping for a 50* wedge, would like a Edel, but would settle for a Vokey, with 12*'s of bounce. Could use some new golf shoes too..I'm a simple man.. :-P

Not sure what I will buy myself,, really don't need anything and don't have anyone to exchange gifts with. As a family we use the money we would have spent on gifts and donate it to a local charity. It's a good thing to do but it came about from growing tired of trading gift cards.

I could use some new golf shirts and slacks but did not ask for anything.  I have a very personalized set of clubs and do not have a need in that category.

The best gift for me would be a much less severe winter than last year with an early Spring - not sure if Santa can deliver that.

Asked my dad for a 54* Cleveland Wedge with 8 or 6* of bounce. I bought a 54.12 degree RTX Black Pearl with a GS gift cert from last xmas before I understood what bounce was. After realizing I usually play in firm conditions (New York) and have a shallow swing, less bounce is crucial.

I don't want to really get off topic, but,  you want the bounce....

Now, back to topic; I don't really have anything on my Christmas wish list golf related other than a shirt or two or maybe a gift card to pick up odds and ends later.

I don't thinking word it quite like that. I'd say perhaps that in your case bounce is less crucial. Meaning that having the bounce isn't going to hurt you when you don't need it .. But it will be nice to have when you do.

What golf related Christmas gifts are you asking for this year?

I don't really have anything specific, but I always hope for new golf balls. I got my wife a fleece jacket from Oakmont Country Club (2016 U.S. Open) and a new golf bag from RockBottom Golf.

A few years ago I asked my wife to stop getting me a big Christmas present and make a donation to Wounded Warriors instead. I am so appreciative of the sacrifices these kids made for our country, that I feel that this is more important than getting a new toy or some item of clothing.

For my current game, the bounce DOES hurt. My 50 degree and 58 degree wedge are great but I skull the shit out of my 54 from the fairway. I'm able to use my 58.8 from bunkers without a problem. I haven't gotten officially fitted for wedges but everything I read suggests that I need less bounce. Maybe I'll hold onto the 54.12 in case my swing develops and I find myself needing it. RN 8 degrees is the max I want
