    Lob Wedge

    If you're a beginner and want to have a lob wedge, a good one to start with is the Cleveland Smart Sole S. It's a 58 degree wedge with a compound sole. You can use it in thick rough and it's pretty straight forward for getting out of bunkers. Just don't try anything fancy with it. Keep the club face square and you'll be fine. The purpose is to get the ball up and out of trouble. It's a very good club. I carry one and can vouch for it. Just don't try to hit a flop shot with it or open the face when you hit a bunker shot. Keep the club face square and let the club's bounce do the work for you. They cost around $99. It's almost impossible to chunk a shot with it.... almost.
  2. I have three bathrooms, three 12 packs of Charmin' mega rolls, and live alone.
  3. I went into advanced options. Just with my normal stock I should be good for 216 days.
  4. It's $1200 and it's not taxable. That's what the news said. If they have your bank account information, it will go directly into your bank account. What does this mean for me? The way I've been playing lately, I might just put ego aside and get a set of Cleveland HB Turbos: 6 - PW, maybe GW with graphite shafts. Yes I know that will be individual irons, but it will be less than the cost of a full set. I've heard good things about these clubs. Laugh all you want at the golf course.

    Lob Wedge

    What do you intend to use it for? What conditions to you play in? It's a fairly specialized wedge. There's bounce and grind. Bounce helps a lot in most conditions. I'd say get a 10 bounce unless you have a specific need. Then there's grind. Grind is different depending upon the brand. Here's Callaway's for the MD-5 series: C - for firm conditions. Also you can lay this wedge almost flat and thump a shot out of a firm bunker with a tall lip which you might not be able to do with one of the other grinds. S - standard. This is a good all around grind for most conditions. W - wide sole. For thick rough and soft conditions. It'll keep you from digging down and duffing your shot.
  6. The other exception to the rule: Preferred lies. Some areas have extended PL seasons. Check your calendar. As soon as the course changes to "summer rules" you're out of luck.

    My go to wedge is my 54/10 S-grind. I use it for about everything inside 80 yds. I don't carry a 5W so I carry two 58 wedges. One 58/8 C-grind which I can lay almost flat in firm conditions, and a 58/10 S-grind for softer conditions. They say amateur golfers are better off chipping and running, but I'm better at flying the ball to a landing zone, unless I can use my putter. The cavity back GI irons just don't have the feel for short game stuff.
  8. ATM, since I haven't been able to get out and practice, it's every club in the bag except my 5H, 54 and putter.
  9. I can get mad after a bad shot if I want. But my coach once told me this: "Golf is not like other sports. In other sports like basketball, emotions can be a good thing and can be used to fire up a team. But in golf emotions will absolutely punish you." I need a lot of range work. Practice at the range needs to be focused.
  10. 4. Could be A... Could be B. I've found a ProV1 on the course with my mark on it before that I lost on my previous round. 🤣 5. B 6. C but not necessarily. Under Rule 18-3c, one could play a "provisional" if it is "virtually certain" that the ball was in a penalty area (i.e. lost or OB) and drop on the fairway at the distance where the ball would have crossed into the penalty area (in this case, where you lost sight of the ball).
