First off, nice bag. The progression of it is interesting. A few questions.....

When you cut down on the wedges, did you have to practice more 50% to 75% shots? If so, what did you practice on?

One more on your lead tape, did it cause the headcovers to stick on the clubs? I have had this issue and would like to get a lead tape brand where it did not happen.

So the wedge progression is an interesting topic. I started and went all out with Dave Pelz wedge distance system. Had the measurements written down etc and got very good at that. Then I noticed if I had a distance gap of 10 yards with 3/4 wedges, I only hit my exact number 1/10 times. Being off by 5 yards is miles to someone who can't putt.

As a result, I worked on inbetween distances a lot and went to just three wedges as I have my body calibrated to each one and for example I am able to hit a 73 yard LW or 87 yard LW.

This came with hours of practice. I don't really go to the range, I feel it's a waste of time. Instead there are practice areas and I would spend a few hours a week with ten balls and see how close I could get the median ball to the target.

Also, my improvements to my scores were not due to working on my golf swing but going to the gym and paying attention to spine angle on compound lifts (rows, deadlifts, squats, good mornings) this has helped my mobility and awareness so I can hold my spine angle.

Yes led tape gets stuck to headcovers. I found the best way is to taper the edges on the lead tape with a golf tee so there is less to catch. Once it's on, it's on.

Thanks for information and feedback on the wedges. That gave me an idea of how to structure my future practice sessions.

Also, I will try using the tee on the lead tape to see if it catches less, so thanks for that as well.

Interesting project coming up! Picked up a set of raw Mizuno Mp 68s and x100 TI. Probably be the best feeling irons ever.

68s!

Just had them sitting around with grooves in great shape so I figured why not. Surprised by the consistency in the first few rounds with them, very forgiving and very tight dispersion.

The MP 68 irons are really cool looking. I have 56 degree wedge that is rusted out similar to those. Your tip on shaving the edges of the lead tape with a tee worked great for me. Thanks for sharing.

Another question, in the photo above it looks like you go from a 17 degree Ping Hybrid to the MP 68 4 iron. How far to hit each of those clubs and how to manage the distance gap between those two?

I would like to hear your thoughts because I added a 25 degree Iron type Hybrid to my bag this summer to address the gap between my 21 degree hybrid and 5 iron. I found I was having trouble with shots in 190 yard range, where I would really have to step on my 5 iron or try to take something off of the 21 degree. Neither of those worked well, and so far the 25 degree hybrid has worked well for the 180 to 195 yard shots.

Thanks.

4 iron carries 215-220
Hybrid 235-240

If I知 at 227 out I値l choke down on the hybrid or hit a 4 iron short.

I知 not really that concerned about it because if I知 that far out, chances of getting a short putt are pretty low. So I知 focusing on putting myself in a position to get it in the hole in 3 shots.

My recommendation is to calculate out strokes gained or lossed for each club in your bag. I keep a record from every round I play and look on improving the weaknesses through 1. Technique  then 2. Equipment.

For example, my reasoning for adding back in the 4 wedges was my losing strokes in the 110-120 range and the 90-95 yard range as I was unable to get the right landing angle. The 4 wood, 21 degree 4 iron would lose me strokes as well because I only hit them 1-2 times a round so it would put me in jail. The 24 degree 4 iron, 2 hybrid has played well in the past few rounds but I do have a 718 T-MB 2 iron on order.

Thanks, this is very interesting. You are longer than me, my 16.5 degree 3 wood is about the same as your hybrid. If I really nut one from the fairway it might go 250+, assuming I get some roll out. I use the 3 hybrid for 200 to 220 shots. If I am 227 out I would go with 3 wood unless it was optimal conditions or it is better to come up short vs. long. I think see your point, you are willing to trade gaps in the long yardages for more precision in short yardages.

For the wedges with normal conditions I use 52 for 110 to 125, 56 for 100 to 110, and 60 for 100 and under. I have found that wind impacts the wedge game more than other clubs, so it is usually a bit different each round. What are your yardages for wedges?

Thanks again for the feedback.

My wedges are all landing angle. For example if I’m 110 out, normally it would hit a saw’ed off gap wedge. If it’s a back pin, I might hit a low PW and run it back there. Front pin from 110, I’ll might hit a full sand wedge. It’s about controlling my descent angle that gets me closest to the pin. I’ve spent a ton of time working on my wedges and it pays off every round.

There is a little par 3 muni course that’s a mile from my apartment that has the tiniest, hardest greens so I’ll go out there and hit three different wedges per hole and see how close I can get all of them to the pin.

I started with learning Dave Pelz clock system, then progressed to hitting it a certain distance. Now I’m working on landing angle.

If there was one thing to get good at in golf, as an amateur, it’s by far wedges.

2 iron is here!

TI AMT x100

Quick review-

By far the best looking DI. Low launch and a very hot face. Feels better then the 716. Narrow sole makes it more workable which is incredibly helpful if I’m trying to play a cut to stop it on a par 5 or work it around a dog leg
