Good Day Gents, My best handicap was 7.7 years ago. Now I am a 14.4 because I don't practice like I used to (time constraints and poor fitness). However I still love to play and will play in a tournament when I can. I try my best to follow all USGA rules. However, I play with Ping i3 irons. I can't find them on the conforming list. It bothers me that my clubs wouldn't be allowed in a USGA sanctioned event. Is it silly of me to think this way? Yes I see many others are also playing old non-conforming clubs but that doesn't matter to me. I just don't want to feel like I would be breaking a rule.
I have a 60 degree wedge that I would like to use through this season. It's a replaceable face Taylor Made xtf conforming (not Z nonconforming grooves). There is literally nowhere to buy the replaceable faces anymore, they have become like rare gold on ebay. Anyway my grooves are okay but the bottom of the face plate where it connects to the head is becoming cracked, forming a quasi groove. Is this club now illegal by USGA rules because of the fracture? I don't think this created groove comes into play on normal shots, though it may be deep enough to impact something, though not noticeably. Is this conforming if I were to play in a tour qualifier or tour event?
