  1. I was digging through the basement of my house which is stuffed full of old stuff. While digging through I found these guys. They are Wilson brand - they say Custom - They say "Ed 'Porky' Oliver" - The wood wedges have B4250 - The irons say 1002. I really have no idea what I am looking at but I am hoping you all can help out. Do you know the year? Are they worth anything more then the nostalgia? They are in pretty good condition from what I can tell. Any information would help, or even suggestions on a better place to find the information I need? Thanks!
  2. New to this forum so hi all! I've played for a year now and always played with a poor set. I've just took over a set of TaylorMade RSi2's (4-Pw). As I'm 6'4 the clubs are 1 inch longer (once got measured at an open day somewhere and this is right for me). So this is the setup with lengths: Nr - std - plus1inch i4 - 38,25 - 39,25 i5 - 37,75 - 38,75 i6 - 37,25 - 38,25 i7 - 36,75 - 37,75 i8 - 36,25 -36,25 i9 - 35,75 - 35,75 Pw - 35,5 - 36,5 I don't have the sets Aw (50) and Sw (56), but the standard length for those are: Aw - 35,5 - 36,5 (same as Pw) Sw - 35,25 - 36,25 I do have 2 Cleveland RTX3.0 wedges in 50 and 56. Standaard length for those: 50 wedge - 35,25 56 wedge - 35,125 These are not extended, and if I extend them with 1 inch they would become: 50 wedge - 36,25 (0,25 shorter than in the set) 56 wedge - 36,125 (a marginal 0,125 shorter than in the set) I have searched/read a lot about lengthening clubs, but not necessarily about the extension of the wedges, and if the wedges also need to be extended (and match) with the iron set or not. Also because you sometimes grip the wedges shorter. Also, anyone familiar with putting +1 inch on a RTX3.0? Is a wedge not normally more sensitive to changes in lie (as a result of the +1 in length)? And, if I lengthen the 50 and 56, should I lengthen +1 inch, or match the length as if it were the clubs in the standard RSi2 set? (marginal difference though) Would love to hear some of your opinions on this topic. Greetings, Hamerhaai (the Netherlands)
  3. Getting a good deal, maybe too good to be true on this SM6 Vokey. Was wondering if anyone could help tell if these are authentic or not. Would be a huge help and thank you in advance
  4. My shoulder isn't 100% and it's going to rain, but f*** it I'm going golfing tomorrow.

  5. What bounce and grinds would you use on a 52 and 58, in a setup with a 47 degree PW? I'm looking into getting wedges that would allow me to use this set of lofts so I can drop a wedge from the bag. The 58 will basically be my lob and sand wedge, and my bunker club of choice most of the time. For somewhat longer sand shots the 52 will be used. This makes it hard to choose the right bounce and grind because both clubs will need to play well opened up, without raising the leading edge, but both are used from the sand too, for which higher bounce usually helps. The gap between 52 and 58 is large enough that I'm going to want to open the 52. The 58 not being a 62-64 will need to be opened too when playing flops. The popular strategy of one club having low bounce and the other high bounce I think may not work well here? Should I get 8-ish bounce with a C or M grind for both the 52 and 58? The technique I plan hope on using with the 58 out of sand is Luke Donald's, he shows it in this youtube video. Because effective bounce can be added using the trailing edge, I'm hoping I can have the bounce on the clubs relatively low to not sacrifice bare lie playability at least for one of the clubs. What bounce and grind (and therefore which brand+model of wedge, I guess) would you go for, given these lofts? Or, would you not go this route at all because the wedges have to be a compromise, given that the 58 is my lob as well as my sand wedge? Your thoughts will be much appreciated.
  6. I've been talking with the fine folks at Orange Whip and today it seemed like a coincidence when a student/golfer had an Orange Whip Wedge in his bag. Though it's intended mostly for working on the short game, I filmed two swings in order to demonstrate how the shaft goes into slight forward deflection and how the forces in the golf swing act on the clubhead and to help line up the shaft at impact. First one was pretty good, second was a bit on the toe. The super whippy shaft (again, the OW Wedge is primarily intended for short game work!) leads to an odd follow through (my left knee stays bent). I think it's because it feels like the clubhead is lagging so far behind that you have to "stay down" on it and NOT "extend/jump" for power or something… but… this provides a good demonstration of how a normal shaft behaves - it's actually in forward deflection (slightly) at impact. There's no real reason for this video other than the coincidence of messing around with this after talking with the Orange Whip folks. The golfer and I talked briefly about what the video showed and he was intrigued to know. When hit with a full swing (again, not the intended use for the OW Wedge, as I understand it) the ball goes about 2x or more higher. It feels a LOT more flexible when waggling or doing slower, smaller movements than it appears to behave in the golf swing. Look at the bend in the takeaway, for example. This is why I think the OW Wedge may be a good thing for a short game thing. The forces are slower. They can help a player continue to accelerate so they DON'T flip their hands with a wedge when hitting a chip shot. If I get a chance to review the OW Wedge I think it can really help some perpetual short game "flippers." P.S. No rolling shutter on this camera.
  7. I got a new 52 degree wedge and I noticed that it's shaft is smaller than my 60 degree wedge that I've been having for awhile. my 52 degree length feels absolutely fantastic and I have a lot more control with it over my 60 degree (which I realize now why I've been choking up on it so hard) how much length should I cut off my 60 degree? I'd say my 60 is just shy of an inch longer than my 52
  8. TL;DRers read the bold text: Currently, beyond a 46* GI PW, I have two Warrior Golf wedges from a garage sale; one 52* wedge with practically no bounce at all, and a 56-12 sand wedge. They have served me well, and I haven't had to deal with Warrior Golf's iffy marketing which is a plus, but these wedges have a very prominent square heel which sharply limits the situations in which I can open the clubface for that nice high 20-yard pitch that sticks hard where you put it. I've gotten better at that open shot out of sand and thick grass lies, despite the equipment, but now I'd like a wedge that actually facilitates it, especially from slightly thinner lies than what I can currently get away with (most of the roughs here in Texas aren't so rough, really, unless you hit into the shade of a tree). So now the question. If I want a pretty direct replacement for my current gap, I'd pick the Vokey SM6 in a 52-08F configuration to play square approaches from the thin lies that are common here in Texas. If I do, then does a dedicated 56-12 sand wedge alongside a 52-08 gap make sense? Opening the gap wedge about 4-6 degrees, theoretically, will give me the steeper profiles that are traditional sand wedge territory, like 56-12 and 58-14. Hitting an example of the 52-08 in a bay gave me a wonderful range of behaviors, and even with the full sole the club opens up much more easily than my Warrior. The only trick is finding out exactly how much to open the club to get a particular loft (if that's even necessary). I would lose the slightly longer shaft of the traditional dedicated sand wedge, but that seems to be falling out of style anyway in favor of just digging your feet into the bunker to get under the ball. In any case, hitting fat in sand is something I have no problem doing; if anything I could use less shaft length on the sand wedge I have. Alternately, it appears that 56-12 is also a bit passe for sand wedges; Vokey only offers the wider sand-surfing K-grind on the 58-14 and 60-14, which I suppose should tell me something about the state of the art in bunker play. If this is the new normal, then I could get a 52-08F and a 58-14K as a pair. A 58 with that much bounce and sole would be kind of a one-trick pony given my pitching technique from anything firmer (I used to have a lob wedge with similar specs, and with my centered, sweeping pitch swing it was pretty much useless for anything less than a perfect tufted lie), but the way I play approach shots on the average round, I have no problem with a dedicated club for that particular trick. So to follow-up, is the 58-14K wedge a better match to a 52-08F?

  14. I know Cleveland do a 588 cavity back range, but are there any other good cavity back wedges I can buy?
  15. The absolute weirdest thing has been happening lately today on the golf team I played horrible granted I was a little under the weather and I had to play with 2 kids who really destroy my mental game while playing but wtf was going on my iron play was awful I had no idea why but it was my wedge it was the weirdest thing I kept hit my wedge literally horizontally right like I had absolutely no idea.what was causing this what part of the face was it coming off it was the absolutely weirdest thing can someone plz help
  16. Help! I need help chipping around the greens. I have been taught the Some some, Some No and No No story, but I still often hit the ground or blade it. What can I do to correct this? Also, I am TERRIBLE out of the sand. I have always been taught to aim for 1 inch behind the ball (this is when chipping from the sand, not long distance) but I often get all sand or all ball. I welcome all mockery, as long as you provide a tip. (that's what she said). Thanks in advance.

    Is my wedge ATR due to cracking?

    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?
  18. Hey guys, I purchased my first set of Vokey wedges about 2 months ago. I've got a 54 deg F grind(14 bounce) and a 58 deg K grind(11 bounce). Both have served me well. However, there is a noticeable problem when playing greenside flop shots within 20ft of the pin. The 58 degree wedge with it's face all the way open will not pop up the ball in "fluffy" grass since the grind an bounce won't let it. The 54 will do it, but the ball arc the club produces is shallow(turns into a bump and run)...even with a half swing. Being that I am a digger, and my wedges are "digger" friendly....what should I look for in something greater that 58 degree's for my style of play? For 60 degree wedges there are 4 different grinds....and if I go to 62, there is only one choice. OR should I just wait till the SM6 is available. I like having my 54, since it can blast me out of a bunker and the 58 is my friend in tighter lies.
