Been watching the Sentry Championship from Hawaii the past couple days, and have been reminded by whoever this person is every ten to fifteen minutes that if you have a problem "chunking it out" that you might want to try the Square Strike Wedge.  Not sure what "chunking it out" is exactly, but I think it's akin to chunking it up and/or chunking it down.  I haven't seen anyone playing yesterday or today "chunk it out" so I believe everyone at Kapalua is using the Square Strike Wedge, the XG7 Driver, the C3I Wedge, and the Medicus Putter with front wheel drive.  Anyone know where I can get a dozen Kick X balls?

I can’t stand when she says “I chunked it! But it wasn’t fat at all!”

Those are one in the same! I hate that commercial

I feel like a small bucket of balls and 30mins would make this club redundant and unnecessary for 95% of golfers that play at least once a month...

Disagree...if you’re yippie, stabbie or chippie, it’ll take more than a half hour and a few balls to get back on track.  It can take months, if not years to get over that sort of thing.  Not saying thie Square Strike is a magic wand, but for some it might be just different enough to help rewire the brain.  Not currently in that mode, but in the past, I’ve leaned on the Cleveland Niblick to sort out some short game woes, as have plenty of others.

I wonder how much Golf Channel/NBC is able to sell commercial time for with all these gizmo golf club ads?   Even at cheap ad times one would they would have to sell a ton of these suckers just to cover one ad.

But this isn't a Morning Drive or Wonderful World of Golf replays time slot. This is a weekend golf telecast with the top 5 in the world playing, with most  all the golf fans on the continent unable to play right now.  Maybe the viewer market share is so tiny with other sports going on  the ad time is really cheap?   Still curious though what "really cheap" might be.

Cable ads are super cheap. They can often be bought by the zipcode and certainly by the county.  That spot would probably cost  no more than $5 to run in a county near me with several good GCs and CCs (at least one which is regularly in the top 10 or at least 20 in the Commonwealth) and 140k or so total population. It could easily be as little as $2 or $3,  Now, obviously, one may run the spot many times and in many counties or zipcodes, but that particular spot cost them literally pennies.

I’m not sure if this is true during The Sentry, but those club commercials that air in non-prime spots pay nothing to the Golf Channel for the commercial and only give a percentage of sales made during that time.

Look at the cost compared to what it costs to make. I would venture to guess they are making $50 bucks a piece maybe a little less. they sell 100,000 they make $5 million. I would venture they sell 100,000 units easily

Not sure if these are made in China or not but manufacturer costs for this club look to be about $10. No joke

I was being conservative in my estimate. Just showing the cost of the adds is a pittance to what they are making on these

My miss with my chips is a rather nasty skull scampering like a rat clear across the green. If this thing could fix that, I’d swallow my pride and be first on line.

The one thing keeping me from lowering my handicap in a significant way

Its a 45*, big soled wedge...sooooo basically a GI pitching wedge?

I wonder how many of those terrible chippers who chunk and skull are trying to chip off those thin lies using a 56 or 60 - and then discover what a "miracle" it is using this wedge.

Would love to see them try chipping with a PW or 9i and reporting back.

I was a 12 cap last year.  Game Golf said I needed improvement in my short game.  I can chip ok with a wedge or 8i but still knew I could get better.  I added an Odyssey Tank Chipper and Callaway Sure Out 64* wedge.  Ended up at a 9.5 cap this year.  I’ll take that improvement all day from some ‘gimmick’ clubs. Actually got my first 2 Eagles holing our from 60 yds with the Sure Out.  

As my 8yr old says. Don’t knock it until you try it.

Lol. I would love someone here to do a head to head shootout with the gimmick clubs vs traditional clubs. Would Crossfield or Shiels do it?

I seem to be stuck playing with guys like this often...  proper technique can be learned in 15 minutes.  Lead with the handle, don't flip with the wrists!

I hear ya, but as a guy who can drive it pretty straight and long, hit more than my fair share of GIR and a decent putter, I still struggle w what appears to be the very simple chip shot. Lessons, 100 YouTube videos, practicing for hours and still s bit of a struggle. Pain!!

My miss with my chips is a rather nasty skull scampering like a rat clear across the green. If this thing could fix that, I’d swallow my pride and be first on line.

The one thing keeping me from lowering my handicap in a significant way

1. Try either a vokey L or a PM grind. The leading edge sits flush to the ground. There is literally no metal to skull the ball with.

2. Keep your lower body still. The screaming skull is when your lower body outraces your upper body. This creates a hole underneath your right shoulder (your hip isn't there to hold
It up). R shoulder drops and the bottom edge of the wedge hits the ball. Have a swing thought of literally immobilizing your hips and legs (you will never actually do that, but it will feel like it).

3. Stop moving the ball backwards in your stance. Skulls are not an impact issue. They are a where your hitting it on the club issue. You can fix fats and dips by moving the ball back but not skulls. A skull is a shank that happens due to a vertical miss instead of a horizontal miss (a shank is off the hosel, a skull is off
The leading edge).

IMO of course.

Love how this wedge features a "ACS 2 Low Friction Anti-Chunk Slide Ramp Sole with No-Dig Leading Edge"
