Forum Thread of the Day: “What to look for in used wedges?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from el_b00t who is on the hunt for some used wedges, and concerned over how much face wear may be too much, has sought the advice of WRXers. Our members share their views while often taking into account both groove wear and bounce options.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • cgasucks: “I’d buy a cheap cast wedge with grooves that haven’t worn out, preferably used. Grooves on forged wedges tend to shallow out a lot faster because of the softer metal.”
  • RogerInNewZealand: “588 Cleveland 52 58 in black five years old mid bounce.”
  • games: “Buy one 56* or 58* wedge with as much bounce as possible. 12* or 14*. Then learn to do everything with that one club. Chip, pitch, flop, sand play. Then, buy Monte’s short game video “Use the Bounce 2.0”
  • ZA206: “At a minimum, you need a PW and a SW. I’d also advise getting a gap wedge to go in between. I wouldn’t bother with a lob wedge until you have become proficient with the SW. I’d go to a golf shop and look at the new wedges and see what you like, then go on eBay and buy used previous year models of those wedges. Used wedges should be CHEAP since they are consumable.”

Tommy Fleetwood puts prototype TaylorMade putter in play at RBC

Published

on

Earlier this week at the RBC Heritage, we spotted English golfer Tommy Fleetwood testing putters on the putting green, and we now have confirmation that said putter, a prototype TaylorMade “Bandon 1,” has gone into play.

The putter is a combination of the Truss TM1, along with a traditional plumbers neck hosel. It is also fitted with a Pure Roll insert. Tommy has a propensity for messing around with putters, so whether it stays in the bag long term or not will be something to follow.
