  1. Have recently re-discovered a MacGregor Golden Bear chipper, I put away for 30 years. Likely, I was embarrassed to use it. Now, as a Sr golfer, I love and use it right off the green, for the dreaded 15-20 yard shot with a tight lie.
  2. Thanks, Colin. I'd like to think it is a club issue. I have used an old Wilson LT sand wedge well for many years. I lost it and then tried the Tour Edge 1 out and Smart Sole. With these clubs, I seem to top it and hit it thin. If I try to take a lot of sand, I leave it in the bunker or I skull it across the green. They are very heavy clubs and don't feel very well. It was a surprise as the Smart Sole gets great reviews.
  3. Can someone recommend an easy to use sand wedge? I'd like to stay away from the wide soled ones like Smart Sole, Sure out etc. A classic design with some forgiveness is preferred. Thx!!
  4. Good points, Knott. I am in the middle of this battle now, as I work on using my chipper. I've been practicing at night at a par 3 golf course, which is packed. I was fine, when there was no people around. Then some folks came up on my right. I said, to myself, oh no, don't shank it to the right, you will hurt these people (luckily I didn't hurt them, lol) and that's what I did-sending the ball to the right. I guess the remedy (hopefully) should be to focus on what I am trying to do. Say things like stick it close or play a low runner.
  5. I would have thought it would have improve mechanics by tightening the stroke? Either way, I have been practicing nicely with the chipper. However, I was practicing it at a course and it was really crowded on the green. I was afraid to hit people on the green. Then came the massive decel and chunks, even a slice. I need to work on the mental aspect of chipping too.
  6. Anyone game the new Lamkin ST +2s hybrid model?
  7. QST is a nice choice. The will go on sale 2-3 times a year. Also, prior gens are dirt cheap on line.
  8. Anyone play a chipper wedge like a Cleveland C club?
  9. I don't think he needs to be fitted. I'd recommend the HB or HB Turbos. I have one of the originals HB3 and still love them. They are easy to hit. If there's any fault, they are a bit hook biased. You can't really screw up any shots. But, it doesn't feel like cheating either. I've demo'd the Turbos and they are longer than the HB3. Demo days are a lot of fun and a great way to check out these clubs. https://www.clevelandgolf.com/en/event-days.html
  10. Having trouble getting to parallel in my backswing. I do have a bad back & right knee and a desk job. But, I believe it is my tight hips causing the problem. Anyone have any Hip Stretches to recommend?
  11. Beermati, It looks like you are on a Callaway track, which is good. Check out callaway pre-owned on line. You might round out your set with other Callaway used clubs. The clubs come in really good condition as you would expect from Callaway as opposed to some random dude on ebay.
  12. Warm your grips before install - best tip I ever had. Easy install!
