PostSubject: HELP NEEDED IN CHOOSING WEDGES   Thu Jul 19, 2012 2:35 pm

HI GUYS!

Been playing golf for quite some time and i need to get a new sand wedge!

My old one was a Tourstage P/S 51 degrees with 6 bounce , good feel but too high and no distance unless a full swing hence i was hoping to get a new one to be able to go at least 100m on a fairway shot with out a full swing!

Any recommendations?

I heard cleveland and callaway are not bad? CG 15? ATV?

PLease do help me , i prefer a fast down swing for wedge instead of digging into the ground , and also some back spin will be good.

So need help on degree angle and bounce angle!


My current stats
51 degrees P/S 6degree bounce ,

3/4 swing about 75m
Full 90m
Normal swing 60m

No offense but if you need to go 100m, use a PW.

Bryan, why cannot used PW? lower trajectory and I'm sure the backspin should be enough.

Hey Bryan (assume that is your name),

Are you looking for a 100m club because your PW is going 110m? In that case, may I ask if your current P/S wedge is from the same set as the rest of your irons?

Perhaps you would like to start by checking what is the loft difference between your current PW and your P/S based on manufacturer specs. If the gap is pretty standard, then you might want to get your clubs checked to see if they are still conforming to the manufacturers loft, it may have run off a little over the course of time.

If there is a large gap, then split the difference for the wedge you are looking for.

On the off chance that your PW goes 100m and your P/S goes 90m, then you already have a nice set up, why muck around with that?

Go to a club fitter. Titleist has a nice set-up at Sentosa! Free range balls and plenty of attention.

Hi guys! oh my so much replies!

As i was a new golfer I started out with just a few irons and this TourStage P/S 51degrees x-wedge was a P/W so all along i assumed it was a pitching wedge and a sand wedge hence never really used any other wedges yet and very inconsistent sometimes even when i got my new iron set i continued using this wedge as it felt easier

I also dont have an official PW other than from the iron set which i have not adapt to , so any suggestions? to get a PW even?

P/S = in between Pitching and Sand = Approach Wedge

I would suggest you learn to hit the PW in your iron set consistently
