  1. Upgrading to a set of Z 585s, 5–PW (44°). I currently play Hot Launch 2 irons, and hit my 46° PW around 110–115 yards. I have a 52° RTX4 that I can take about 100 yards on a full swing, and with the stronger lofts and newer materials I’m expecting to need to fill the gap between the new PW and my 52°. I’m a high handicapper, but from good lies I feel much more confident with the RTX than my CBX sand wedge, whose bounce I always fear will make me blade the ball. From the bunker and the rough, I appreciate the reassurance of the CBX’s bigger face, and the higher bounce is helpful rather tha
  2. Good day all I am curious (in learning mode). Would you carry one fairway wood and a driver with 4 wedges (50, 54, 58, 6x) or a driver, 3 wood, 5 wood and 3 wedges (50, 54, 58)? My bag has a 4 wood and a 7 wood along with 2 hybrids (4 & 5) and the 3 wedges.
  3. I was catching some of the LPGA Aussie Open coverage today on the GC. I heard one of the commentators mention how the golfers were almost exclusive on using wedges around the greens and not doing bump and runs with 7 & 8 irons. It has me wondering if this a prevailing shot selection process these days with most players to use wedges more around the greens as opposed to bump and running with irons. As a newbie, I love taking my 5 - 8 irons and work on bump and run shots in the yard. Practicing everything from 5 to 30 yard chips. I pick my target zone and then focus on landing the balls
  4. I swapped out my wedges this year. I went from Callaway MD3's to Ping Stealth 2.0's. I changed my wedges because I do play for spin around the green and over time they do not spin as well. I also never got along with the 50 degree for full shots. I was never comfortable with it. I am playing Ping I200's for irons, Ping G400 driver and I figured I try the wedges. I got 50 SS 12 degrees bounce, 54 ES 8 degrees of bounce and 58 SS 10 degrees of bounce. I really have not hit them yet but pulling them out of the plastic I note two things. 1. The numbers are back like the club. That
  5. The highest lofted wedge I hit full shots with is a 56*. I carry a 60* wedge, but almost always use it for short game shots or up to about a 3/4 swing. Does anyone hit full shots with a 60*, 62* or 64* wedge?
  6. From time to time, the topic of modern irons and jacked up lofts comes up and a common criticism is that individual irons hitting farther creates wider gaps at the scoring end of the bag. I thought about this a little bit and I realized, as I'm getting better at the game, I almost never hit a full swing on an approach shorter than 150 yards. I've always liked the partial wedge yardage system and this year I finally mapped mine, but I also find myself using the knockdown or 3/4 swing approach to hitting greens with short irons more and more. As a result, even though my full swing yard
  7. I've been Playing Golf for: age 4-22 ( 4/1/18- present) 10 year drought My current handicap index or average score is: 1.6 My typical ball flight is: strait, 5 yd draw, 5yd cut The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: wedge control from 25 yds to 90 yds, push strait shit, rare thinned shots, low irons. Wedges
  8. Looking to buy new wedges Mack Daddy 3 VS SM6. Looking for everyones opinion. Thanks
  9. 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
  10. I'm a bit partial to these wedges seeing as how @david_wedzik and I named them… (true story), but I wanted to share this news with y'all… PHOENIX (Jan. 18, 2017) – Precision-milled faces with sharper groove edges than any previous PING wedge model dramatically increase spin rates and trajectory control in the new Glide 2.0 wedges, leading to more precise short-game performance from all conditions, PING announced today. “The new Glide 2.0 wedges represent a major breakthrough in performance for a number of reasons, but it’s the new grooves that are most exciting,” said
  11. Hello I just got a set of iron's 4 thru pw,aw is there any more clubs I should add as far as wedges go thanks
  12. Went to the Gateway Chapter PGA merchandise sale at Missouri Athletic Club - West in St. Louis County. This marketplace allows for the regional golf shops and country clubs to have a pre-Thanksgiving clearance. This allows the shops to unload hard and soft goods that haven't moved out during current retail activity. An area the size of a large basketball court was divided up about 2/3 apparel and gadgets and 1/3 golf clubs. Several of the lighter name-brand stand bags were marked down to between $100 and $125. Good deals if you needed them. Change this year: Very little haggling
  13. I thought it might be nice to have wedges with shafts that match those of my irons. My old wedges have shafts slightly lighter than my irons, when heavier is typical, and they are an unpleasant color. I thought I might go through with my idea of playing 4 specialty wedges in addition to my set pitching wedge and closeting a wood. I had golf money burning a hole in my pocket. For these reasons and more I went ahead and ordered a custom set of 4 Mizuno S18 Chrome wedges in 48, 52, 56, 60. Fun! Mizuno has no upcharge on the shafts or grips I wanted so they are actually the cheape
  14. I have a habit of rotating my fairway woods. Once I throw down the bucks for a driver, it stays put for at least 5 years. My irons (MP-14), over 20 years now. My putter changed from a Ping B-60 (20 years) to an Odyssey Marksman (past 10 years). Still have the B-60. My wedge is Cleveland Tour Action 56 deg that I've had for over 30 years. I've killed a rattlesnake with it. The fairway woods are like old girlfriends, you think about them once in a while, but the memory fades. There is always that one that seem to stick in your mind the longest. Mine was a Ping ISI 3- wood with a regular f
  15. After struggling all year with more lofted wedges, I am seriously considering going to a three wedge system. Does anyone still play this system? Here's my problem, my PW is 44°, I'm not going to go directly to some sort of SW (56°). My thought was 44-48-54 (the wedges that match my iron set AW and SW). Currently I play EXi PW (44°) and AW (48°), and the CB Pro S 52°/12°, 56°/14° wedges. Note: I don't need to go out and buy any wedges to replace anything, unless you guys think I need a 50° second wedge in which case, I'd have to buy that.
  16. Would like to know more about types and brands of clubs? I'm new to the lifestyle and well I can read reviews till I bleed from the eyes but actual users and reasons would be a great help. I personally like my irons (ping eye2's blue dot). I can hit them straight and each club up or down I can get about 10 yards plus or minus. 60-75% I hit them where I pray they go. I know there old as dirt but they hit nice and well just starting I figure I'll upgrade next season. Kinda why I'm looking for input. I have a tour edge bazooka QL 11 degree driver. Still trying to figure that monster out
  17. After compiting in Scratch tournaments, i was faced with several shots between 200 - 220 yards of carry on approacho shots an even for laying up on par 4/5´s, distances that are not common at my home course so i don´t have a club to hit that shots. I currently hit my 3 wood 230 carry and my 4 iron 190 carry. That´s a big Gap i need to fill. In orther to fill it i will buy an 19° Hybrid (set to 18°), my issue is what club to take out off the bag. This is my current Clubs/Degrees/Carry Distances. Driver 9° 250 3 Wood 15° 230 New Hybrid 18° 210 (Gap filler) 4 Iron 22° 190 5 Iro
  18. I do like a rusty wedge,they just appeal to me visually.I suppose it's the patina,old school look I like. Anyone else out there have a similar view?
  19. I just saw these in a mail from another golf forum . . Thoughts? Feelings? Predictions on if or when Bryson DeChambeau will put them in the bag?
  20. I did some research on what wedges to have and it doesn't look like I've got the right setup. I have Ping G2 irons so in terms of wedges I have the G2 47* pitching wedge and 50* utility wedge, along with 52* and 64* wedges. This was the setup I got with my hand-me-down clubs when I first started playing a few years back, so I never gave it much thought, but now I'm playing a lot more and improving my game. So I'm hoping to get the most out of my wedge setup. Given the G2 47* PW and 50* UW, do y'all have any recommendations a proper setup? There's a golfsmith nearby so I'm looking into fit
  21. So I moved to Portland a year ago but didn't get to play at all last winter. Plus last winter was historically dry here, and the courses I got to play last summer were all well drained and well dried out by the time I was playing. I've now gotten to play 9 holes a few times this winter, which leads to a question about wedges. I've been using the same 60˚ for years now, and I've always loved it. Use it for almost all shots under ~80 yards, almost all shots around the green, when I'm playing regularly have it really dialed in (for my handicap), pretty rarely thin it and (literally) a
  22. I was wanting some wedges for Christmas this year is I only have a pitching wedge. I think I should get a 56 in a 52 but my grandpa thinks I should get a 50 and 56. What combo should I get?
