@  BingHogan : (12 September 2014 - 11:24 AM) Looks GREAT, TOO.
@  BingHogan : (12 September 2014 - 11:22 AM) First ball out of the box-- Back of the net! Second, straight little draw. As Kenny Perry once said: " I Kain't miss it!" Really haven't hit a driver like that in years!
@  J13 : (12 September 2014 - 09:45 AM) Bio Cell is a hidden gem. Heard Cobra is bringing the HEAT next year.
@  ROBOPTI : (12 September 2014 - 09:44 AM) Bing ... Bio Cell + is AWESOME ... LOVE !!!! mine
@  BingHogan : (11 September 2014 - 08:29 PM) Hit a Cobra Bio Cell driver today. Very underrated. On the BUY list next month.

@  BingHogan : (10 September 2014 - 09:24 AM) Send some of that rain down to California! Central Valley will be gone by next summer if it doesn't rain/snow. Towns without water...
@  rfdegen : (10 September 2014 - 07:31 AM) We're still playing golf here - in between thunderstorms. Record rains in WI. Sucks!
@  TJR : (09 September 2014 - 09:30 PM) I need to play. Been going to the range, but my swing sucks right now. Playing crooked stick in 2 weeks if the weather is decent.
@  MN NICE : (09 September 2014 - 07:27 PM) NFL is BACK!
@  BingHogan : (09 September 2014 - 03:29 PM) Anybody still playing golf out there!? Man, it's dead.
@  youngwaldo : (09 September 2014 - 10:52 AM) Got mine yesterday. Going to test them tomorrow.
@  rfdegen : (09 September 2014 - 08:58 AM) Got my sleeve of test balls and will be testing them tonight, if it doesn't rain again! Crap! We're flooding around here these days. Enough already!
@  burniemac : (09 September 2014 - 07:42 AM) Just got a sleeve of the Titleist test balls in the mail yesterday
@  BingHogan : (08 September 2014 - 06:16 PM) Sleeves that have been handed out. Looks like more spin probably due to lower spinning drivers coming out.
@  TWshoot67 : (08 September 2014 - 01:56 PM) Are we talking the New Titleist sleeves that have been sent out?
@  TWshoot67 : (08 September 2014 - 01:55 PM) @BingHogan is this ball from a New Company or just a new Proto for next years possible selections?
@  BingHogan : (07 September 2014 - 10:10 PM) Testing a new ball prototype tomorrow. Sworn to not to loose it. Just hit it and see...
@  BingHogan : (07 September 2014 - 09:58 PM) Maura Passing Point with KBS V -- Sweet! Hit 200 and couldn't put em down. Great turf interaction and feel.
@  TJR : (06 September 2014 - 09:27 PM) I was talking to someone today and mentioned that this is probably the first time I've been completely satisfied with the clubs in my bag
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 07:43 PM) Decided to go through ALL my bags and start over from driver to wedges.
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 07:42 PM) PP - large cavity. Doesn't have the new CB yet. Also the new blade. Really expensive, though. Might have to break out the new MP 69's.
@  TJR : (06 September 2014 - 02:30 PM) Should feel buttery soft. Blade or CB?
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 09:53 AM) Hitting a Miura with KBS V later today to add to the confusion :rolleyes:

@  BingHogan : (28 August 2014 - 10:20 PM) A zinger is probably right. He's the only one on the GC that knows what he's talking about.
@  TJR : (28 August 2014 - 04:14 PM) Azinger said he could fix Tiger in 10 minutes...
@  youngwaldo : (28 August 2014 - 09:40 AM) Butch is slowing down so taking Tiger will not happen.
@  HossOnMoss : (28 August 2014 - 09:16 AM) I've heard the Grant Waite rumors as well, but that would be so similar to how Foley teaches. That's not to say that Grant couldn't teach him better even with a similar model or style.
@  HossOnMoss : (28 August 2014 - 09:15 AM) Butch already said no and Tiger isn't going to take the left overs. I could see Claude III as an outside possibility otherwise, but I doubt it because of that.
@  BingHogan : (28 August 2014 - 08:57 AM) Gotta be one of the Harmon's. Or all of them. It's not the coach...
@  J13 : (28 August 2014 - 06:04 AM) I'm taking myself out of consideration to be tigers next coach lol
@  ballen : (28 August 2014 - 04:56 AM) I hear Grant Waite will be Tigers next.......
@  BingHogan : (27 August 2014 - 09:38 PM) RIP Tours - unbelievably good!
@  BingHogan : (27 August 2014 - 09:37 PM) Tiger maybe running out of options. Maybe Leadbetter :rolleyes:
@  HossOnMoss : (27 August 2014 - 09:28 AM) Tiger holds interviews for the position. Breed walks up and says, "Come on, Tiger! LET'S DO THIS!!!!" Tiger and I are thinking the same thing....BRUTAL. Haha
@  TWshoot67 : (26 August 2014 - 07:54 PM) Heck Tiger doesn't need to be with Michael Breed he's already a weekly discussion about the golf swing even when he's not playing on the Golf Channel....
@  Golferrob22 : (26 August 2014 - 06:36 PM) I'd put some money on Bob May! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
@  TJR : (26 August 2014 - 06:26 PM) How about Michael Breed? Tiger could be featured on a weekly segment of "The Golf Fix"
@  HossOnMoss : (26 August 2014 - 12:04 PM) I figured it was coming. Who's up next for the position? My money is on Chuck Cook.
@  BingHogan : (25 August 2014 - 02:21 PM) Still would like Tiger to get to at LEAST 18 Majors! That will tick off Chamblee.
@  TWshoot67 : (25 August 2014 - 01:55 PM) Tiger and Foley are done. The split has been announced by both sides1

@  MWP : (08 August 2014 - 09:42 PM) @TW Since Fowler put work into his swing with Butch and cut his hair my opinion on him has completely changed, I'd like to see him squeak this one out.
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 08:08 PM) Although Steve Striker winning would be pretty cool too...
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 08:07 PM) Is anyone else pulling for Rickie Fowler this weekend?
@  KyCutter : (08 August 2014 - 05:13 PM) He should be smarter than that TW. That's my point. If he's hurt. Quit
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 04:11 PM) he's probably going to gut it out hurt himself some more just so he don't have to listen to media and naysayers who say he's faking his injuries
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 04:10 PM) he's already posted an 81 @ The Open few years back.
@  KyCutter : (08 August 2014 - 02:38 PM) Pushed putt. Pulled back. Time to WD. No way will he post 80
@  rfdegen : (08 August 2014 - 10:17 AM) Not contrary, from someone with a bad back, just amazed he's playing this week. Un-freakin-believable.
@  TWshoot67 : (07 August 2014 - 01:08 PM) It's all what have you done lately in todays world. Sorry I just don't give up on Tiger so easy. I'm a fanboy! lol
@  TWshoot67 : (07 August 2014 - 01:07 PM) I love how people are so contrary, less then 10 months ago Tiger had 5 wins and was #1 WGR. Now it's like he should just toss it in an quit his career is over, LOL
@  Qwagmire : (07 August 2014 - 10:47 AM) any guesses when the spasms happen? I got front nine Friday
@  KyCutter : (07 August 2014 - 08:27 AM) I suspect the "spasms" are creeping back into the picture.
@  HossOnMoss : (06 August 2014 - 07:39 PM) He did say it was spasms...real or not. Anyone that didn't think he would tee it up this week is nuts. There's no way he was missing the PGA once he made his statement sunday.

Vokey wedges are the most popular. If you are trying to come up with suggestions for new wedges, you shouldn't follow the trends. Look into a company that has alot of options and what works best for you. Scratch makes great wedges and has probably the best wedge options on the market. To me wedges are the most important clubs in my bag and I play what works best regardless of brand or popularity.

As everyone has stated the major companies are the most popular but scratch golf makes some great wedges and highly customizable. Most important thing is getting the correct lofts and correct grinds.

Definitely agree 100%. The most important part about buying wedges isn't what anyone else is using; it is what is right for you. It depends largely on your swing, set makeup, and what shots you want to hit. There are so many factors that go into these things, though (like playing surface, sand texture, loft requirements, etc...) that you really need to consult with someone qualified to point you in the right direction. If you can't do an in person consultation and fitting, your next best thing is to do it over the phone or via email.

I've heard from 2 different Tour players that the TM wedges with the new Z-TP faces really spin a lot less than the C-C Vokeys. Several guys have gone away from the TM wedges as a result. I played with my brother on the weekend and he was using the Z-TP and there were a few times where he hit shots that should have stopped even with the new grooves and they just rolled out that little bit more than expected...... One chip out of the rough it was very noticeable..... Granted it was the only time he was in the rough and the grooves didn't stop him from making 9 birdies......

I will say that the 48* head he has is the best looking wedge I've ever seen.

Grinds can obviously be customized, so the sole shouldn't be a major issue if you are looking to find the best wedges for your game and are willing to go the custom route which is key if you truly want to play what is best for your game. Otherwise, it comes down to finding a head that suits your eye and finding one that has the best performance in terms of the grooves which I think gets overlooked and taken for granted more than just about anything else when it comes to wedges.

Eventhough there are limitations and maximum requirements when it comes to groove volume, depth, spacing, and edge radius, it does not mean that all grooves are basically designed to perform to the max and will all be the same. The spin and consistency (or lack thereof) that is created by some of the more poorly designed heads that are out there can really cost you strokes whether the average player realizes it or not. It doesn't matter if you have the most perfectly crafted and fit wedge grind if the head that it is applied to is poorly designed or cheaply manufactured. You may prefer Ping, Cleveland, Titleist, TM, or Callaway wedges which is fine. But, I would suggest not taking the grooves in a head for granted and assuming that it's just all about the right loft, bounce, and look of a wedge. They are some of the most important clubs in your bag and in general are probably the most poorly fit ones as well simply because a lot of golfers take the choices that they have for granted and do not realize the performance differences that exist as you we all know and expect in a driver for instance.

When I look at bag pics posted on this site and others. I see vokey wedges in more pro bags that are not on staff with them then any other. Mostly you see others playing the 60's. I think the reason is they feel softest and spin hard. All the wedges also have different feel from really firm to soft.

I agree. From what I've seen, more non-staffers will play vokeys than any other brand. I'd say Cleveland is second with callaway being third. You don't see too many non-staffers playing Ping (except when the Eye2 was briefly allowed this year) or TM lately. Other than that, I think the rest play the brand they are on staff with. Obviously, there are the exceptions like the guys playing Fourteen wedges.
